Contrasting Hues

Hi,

How is your week going? Mine is going pretty well. Tuesday Night was movie night and had a chance to watch “Girls Trip”. I have to say I was pretty impressed with the movie and it was hilarious. I have to commend Tiffany Haddish who played Dina in the movie, she killed her role. She definitely brought her A+ game. In every girl squad, there are different personalities but there’s always a crazy one? I think in my group, I definitely get the award for the crazy and funny one, LOL. In your group, which one are you? I would love to know.

The ready-to-wear line integrates to your body shape with a 4-way stretch spandex panel. It sculpts a comfortable, non-restricting solution to those stubborn tummy rolls and periodic bloating.

Iro and Buba: Modern Twist – StyleByToyoC x TokaToka

Hi,

A little bit of background here, Iro and Buba is the traditional attire attributed to the Yoruba culture in Nigeria. The Iro is the wrapper and the Buba is the top. As fashion is evolving, the younger generation have found new ways to keep the style modern but still keeping the traditional attire alive. TokaToka created a modern twist to the Iro and Buba while keeping it chic. I love the floral silk print material and how it flows on the body. The modern interpretation of the wrapper is gorgeous; wrap skirt with ruffles. I felt comfortable and chic wearing this outfit.
