  • Cape Metal Embellished Shirt + Gray Skinnies

    By SP on June 7, 2012
    I haven’t been myself all week. My heart has been aching and I’m trying so hard to put a smile on my face. I’m sure you all have heard by now that a plane crashed into a residential neighborhood in Lagos, Nigeria, killing all 153 passengers + 4 on the ground. You can read more about it here. Well, I […]

  • Puff Sleeve Moto Jacket + Tee Maxi Dress

    By SP on April 4, 2012
    This Jil Sander-esque dress was “love at first sight.” I recommended it on the pinterest page several weeks ago. While on vacation, my big sis and I walked into this boutique by her house and our jaws dropped. She fell in love with a striped color-block maxi and I went straight for this piece. They had them in more colors […]

  • Printed Tunic + DIY Lace Bell Bottom Pants

    By SP on April 3, 2012
    This is the outfit I wore to chill out on Sunday. I made these lace pants 12 years ago – from the very first collection I ever did. Can you believe that? You all know I was just on vacay, right? (went home to spend time with my family). Well, I didn’t realize that my sister stored every single piece […]

  • Puff Sleeve Peplum Blouse + Yellow High Waist Jeans

    By SP on March 27, 2012
    It’s amazing how fashion & style comes back full circle. This peplum look has been around for years. In fact, one of the reasons I love it so much is because it’s a traditional and cultural style back home (Nigeria). The peplum blouse is often paired with a wrap (similar to a wrap around skirt), a-line or pencil skirt and […]

  • Jewel By Lisa SS 2012 Vintage Love Collection

    By SP on November 28, 2011
    I’m obsessed with Jewel by Lisa‘s Spring Summer 2012 collection and her genius pairing of lush and colorful prints on prints. As the Africa Fashion International Designer of the year winner, Lisa Folawiyo takes us on a voyage back to Nigeria in the 60’s. A time characterized by independence and growth, a time of change and promise. With the emergence […]
  • Made in Africa: Jewel By Lisa Spring 2012 Collection

    By SP on September 27, 2011
    It was great fun to watch the Made in Africa Arise Show at NYFW live from my computer. Job well done to Arise Magazine for making this possible. Hope you have enjoyed the designers featured. We are finishing off with Jewel by Lisa. The first brand/designer to embellish the ankara fabric (printed) with sequins, swarovski crystals and beads. Her use […]
  • Forest Print Silk Caftan – Beach Day

    By SP on July 11, 2011
    Yesterday was a beach day for us. A little windy, but it was a blast. Greg and I get so much joy from just watching the kids play and be free. They build sand castles, dig “wells”, play pretend ‘mom & dad’, fly kites – roll around in sand and get dirty! I wore one of my favorite caftans. My […]

  • Edun Boxy Shirt + Edun Silk Harem Pants

    By SP on July 6, 2011
    I feel proud, beautiful and hopeful in this outfit. Why? Because of the amazing story behind the brand Edun. I was excited beyond belief when I was contacted by Edun for a collaboration. As most of you know, I am African. From Nigeria (West Africa). So, naturally, I said, “Yes, yes, yes.” Edun was founded by Ali Hewson and Bono […]
