da·shi·ki

dəˈSHēkē/

noun

a loose, brightly colored shirt or tunic, originally from West Africa.

The Dashiki was made popular in the western parts of the world by Oba (Yoruba word for king) Ofuntola Oseijeman Adelabu Adefunmi, who was born Walter Eugene in Detroit, Michigan, USA in 1928. He became interested in African Studies at the age of 16, and travelled to Haiti at the age of 20 in order to be exposed to African religion from indigenous Africans. Soon after, he returned to the U.S. and began a small scale manufacturing business which included African attire, most notably dashikis

Over the years Ive fallen in love with African inspired pieces. I think designers are really stepping up their game, when it comes to putting a modern touch to traditional African/ethnic clothing. I think Boxing Kittenwas one of the first designers to really bring ethnic inspired clothing to the mainstream. With celebrity clientele like Solange Knowles, Fergie, Beyonce & Chris Brown  just to mention a few.

I really admire the bright colors and bold prints that ethnic fabrics have. Easily transforming a regular outfit to something catchy, unforgettable and unique.

Im always eyeing and purchasing cultured pieces. The pop of color will do wonders to any ensemble. I have a trip to Houston coming up in a few weeks, i cant wait to style my pink dashiki and rock it with style and pride.

Make sure your following me on fb for pictures 😀😀😀

Question 1: So when’s the first time you fell in love with FASHION?
I have always been in to arts & crafts so when I was little my mom showed me how to sew and I copied outfits I saw on TV or in her magazines for my dolls!

Question 2 : Do you have a signature STYLE?
I would say the only thing that’s signature about my style is that I’m a sucker for classic silhouettes and I love color and prints!

Question 3: Who is your favorite DESIGNER?
If I had to choose only one I’d say Marc Jacobs

Question 4 : Who is your current STYLE crush?
My current style crush would be Blake Lively, youthful, sexy but classy with a touch of edge and fun.

My ensembles depend on my mood each day, I always wear something that will make me feel happy that day!

Question 6 : What are some of your favorite boutiques to get your fashionable pieces?
We have very few boutiques where I live so I shop in big stores and online a lot. ASOS, H&M, Express, Forever21, Macy’s and Nordstrom are at the top of my list!

After hearing the song ” I decided” over that insane beat produced by Pharrell…..I was hooked! As she made her rounds to promote Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams I was drown in not only by the music but by her vintage style and fashion. 2008 , the week the album dropped I went crazyyy all over Vegas to find it.

After about the 6th store I was successful not because she was selling out but not to many stores even bothered to sell it because she wasnt the popular Knowles …then :/ Now , Everything about Solange screams original and very outside the box , this is what I believe stars are MADE off plus she is in control of her destiny and became an style icon and role model. Many ppl thought I was insane and always called her wack , talentless but I bet they jumping on her d*ck now ijs They was blind then but now I know they can see the stylish naturalista on the red carpet showing up and showing out #GAG. She is a true fashion trendsetter and a force to be wrecking with! She walks to the beat of her own tune and while everybody does the same ol sh*t , shes CLEARLY STANDING IN A LANE ALL HER OWN and the world is finally paying attention
