Ruche

I recently made a purchase from Ruche, a vintage clothing company that I discovered a few months back and I am definitely in love!!, I honestly hate online shopping unlike most people, because I get so impatient waiting on my packages and it’s annoying when the stuff doesn’t fit or the color is weird and I have to ship them back (sigh!)…..even though I … Read More Ruche

New beginnings

I think spring came early in the pnw, too bad the “east-coasters” are getting hit hard by blizzards. Flowers are blossoming everywhere here, the sunny days are getting longer… I hope it stays this way for a while but who knows, the pnw weather has been known to play tricks on us. Anyhow, I bought this dress for my graduation last year and never … Read More New beginnings

Do me a solid.

I think summer came early in the pnw and am not complaining, the weather has been gorgeous all week and I finally got to enjoy it today, even though I have become accustomed to the rainy and cloudy days.

REMIX: sister style

So my sister did a remix with this cute print top, styling the top with a skirt and pants. I love them both but I have to say the skirt wins it for me!, for starters, shopping in Kenyan markets almost guarantees unique finds like the dress top. I think the print is rather unique, have you seen/do you own a print like the … Read More REMIX: sister style
