'Tis The Season…...

'Tis the season indeed for gift giving, excessive splurging, and impulse buys! Hey you worked hard this year..… right? Whatever the case, treat yourself! Consider my Christmas 2015 gift list. A few of my product favorites for the year.

Starting out with the men, I created looks just for HIM. 

New designer Atto Tetteh creates the sharp traditional kaftan set for your festivities. To accessorize Heel The World is our one stop shop for wrist bands, wallets, belts, shoes and iPad cases. My newest obsession from Modern Thread for both men and women are the Aurum wooden sunglasses. Twist your traditional ensemble with a PRAY cap from Kwame Adjaye!

This agbada, also from Atto Tetteh incorporates his Kufi hat. Heel The World (HTW) one strap leather shoes with the hand woven toe-cap detailing. Heel The World Leather Belt.

Two toned leather Brogues from HTW

Beaded cufflinks and matching ring for HIM from Amanda's Jewelry

Now for HER, I put together my favorite purses you must have NOW!

KUA Designs creates the mini bag, which you may hold as a clutch or extend the added bag chain to wear on your shoulder. Taking centre stage, the favorite crowd pleaser, the A.A.K.S clutch.

Indulge in these gold pieces from Myth House. Box satchel (above) and Oversized Envelope (below).

The Poqua Poqu Adodi bag above in orange and red.

Get right on trend with this Anansi Satchel.

The Gold grid! Clo by Clea hand beaded jewelry, Orné square necklace and bracelets, KUA tear drop earrings with black stone. leaf bracelet and KUA necklace with stone, Amanda Jewelry green beads, chandelier earrings and chocker with matching earrings, Tebazel rosary necklace and Monaa Sandals


I call the Vlisco Pret-a Creer package, the life raft. It is an easy gift to give and already boxed. It contains 2&2 years or 2&4 yards of hand selected complimentary fabric and Vlisco metal tag. Bedazzle your outfit with the included crystals.

Shop the looks with the brands you love via Instagram and through their websites
