Ikat You Kat, We All Scream for Ikat
It is friday, and there are four things about this post that I absolutely love.
1. This skirt - Part of Jcrew's new summer line, it is versatile and flattering on the tummy and a fun print that you can either dress down or dress up. This skirt was well over a $100 and for the next 24 hours, is on sale for $84. However, please note that the slit is ultra high, as in if the wind blows we will see everything. (Or maybe that's your thing :-) )
2. These shoes are my boldest and brightest. - I mentioned in my previous post that the Geo Brush stroke print came with a matching pair of shoes. Since I didn't want to blind anyone by wearing them all together, I saved them for a more subtle outfit. The best part is these once $300 pair are now below $100...so make sure to grab them while you can! (I sized up to an 11 because I have wider feet)
3. I am wearing Jewelry from my sister's new Jewelry line Orné - My older sister Afua, who is my absolute biggest cheerleader, and stylist, has one of the coolest jewelry lines. I am so excited that I get to pick out and style some of the unique and one-of-a-kind pieces. For this shoot, I chose the palm cuff (which should honestly be named after me). This piece sold-out as soon as it was released so good luck getting one, but If you want to place an order, send her an email and tell her I sent you.
4. I love collaborating with Artists - During my art days in GIS, I would always stalk/crush on a young lady named Nelly Mensah. Fast forward you know, maybe 10 years later, I randomly reached out to her and asked If she would illustrate some pieces for my blog. Not only did she agree, but she created the most amazing illustration of these shoes. Take a look at some of her other work here.
