Couture Splendour for Little Ladies

I didn't know couture clothing was being made for children!   As I live I'm still learning.  One children couture designer is Mischka Aoki who resides in Australia.  Her work is luxurious with beautiful and time consuming details.    I'm not even going to tell you the price of one of these gorgeous dresses.  I hyperventilate every time I see the cost.  You can go to MischkaAoki.com to see for yourself.

Oh, and by the way,  a very belated Happy New Year!

Men Wear It Well

I have to repeat from my previous blog, aren't the men looking good these days.  I love the variety of clothing combinations men are wearing today.  I may have said in the past that men wore basic clothes (not my exact words, but similar to what I meant), but I'll have to take my words back!  Men are really expressing themselves through fashion.

Mature Men Fashioning





It's not only the young that have fashion sense.  Older men and women have it too, and we need to see more of the mature age group, in photos online and in magazines, showing their wonderful styles.  Mature men are featured today, and don't they look fine?

Dolls So Chic

If I were a girl now, I'd definately ask my parents to buy one, two, make that three  African American dolls for Christmas.  Where were they when I was young?  The little people today have so much variety when it comes to toys.  But, this blog isn't just about dolls of color, it's also about what they're wearing!  My, my, I'd be happy with one of these outfits in human size.... well, I won't say what size I am.

Extravagant Africa Fashion

I missed African Fashion Week 2016! This extravaganza was held from Thursday, August 18 to Sunday, August 21 in Toronto.  It was one of the events at the top of my list, but due to unfortunate circumstances, I wasn't able to attend this year.  Therefore I had to post photos of beautiful African fashion this week to give me just a little taste of what I've missed.

Anyway, my daughter and I found out about Akoma Multicultural Food and Dance Festival being held Saturday at Chinguacousy Park in Brampton (in Ontario).    While walking around the park, we ran into a young lady.  I admired her skirt from a distance, and as we walked closer, we saw the banner "Miss Ghanian Canadian".  I asked if she won the contest.  The young lady told us the pageant is being held at the City Playhouse Theatre in Vaughan (Ontario).  If any of you are interested in attending, the pagaent will be held September 9, 2016, starting at 6:30 pm.

Trendy Olympic Uniforms 2016

I'm just enjoying the Rio Olympics, aren't you? Unfortunately, I didn't see the complete opening ceremony (saw over half).  I fell asleep, but not because I was bored.  I'll be drinking coffee during the closing ceremony to make sure I'm awake for the entire program.

We're now into the second week which includes one of my top favorite sports to watch, track and field.  So I'll be riveted to the tv for these next few days.

I think many of the uniforms worn during the opening ceremony (the ones I saw, and the ones I found online) for the Olympics were just on the mark.  Colors  and silhouettes were fun and somewhat experimental, if that can be said, for the start of a world competition.  

Shout out to the Canadian medal winners! And to the other medal winners from a few other countries I was also rooting for!  Here are just a few of the winning uniforms. Wish I could post all my favorites.

Neo Soul Style

Neo Soul.... do you know I just learned this term last week?  I was researching one of the late 80's early 90's bands by the name of Soul II Soul.  They're a British band, or rather, a neo soul band.  Loved their music, and definately loved their style. 

Definition of Neo Soul?  A musical mix of R&B, 70s soul and hip hop.   Neo Soul style? A mix of of the same 3 genres producing clothing full of soul.
