"Sunflower" - Peplum Crop Top

“If I were a flower, I would be a sunflower.
To always follow the sun, turn my back to darkness,
Stand proud, tall and straight even with my head full of seeds.”

"Star Gazing" - Casual Ankara Shorts

There are billions of stars in the sky,
and the sky is big enough for each and every one of them to shine as bright as they desire.
Don’t let anyone steal your shine!

Keep shining!

"BEAN There, Done That!"- My Chicago Trip Photo-Diary

Life is like a camera:
focus on what’s important,
capture the good times,
develop from the negatives,
and if things don’t work out,
just take another shot!”

I had the pleasure of visiting Chicago a couple of weeks ago for a friend's wedding. I was only there for one night, but I really enjoyed my time. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen a couple pictures from my trip. Well, here's an abbreviated photo diary. Enjoy!

“Don’t allow yourself to wake up with yesterday’s issues troubling your mind. 
See everyday as a new chapter.”

"Pink Ruffles & Gold Shapes" - My Chicago Wedding OOTD

As I mentioned in my previous post, I was in Chicago for a wedding. At first, I had decided to wear something I already had in my closet. But the day before my departure, around noon, I changed my mind. Crazy, right?! Anyway, I quickly whipped up this simple yet chic Ankara dress, and it took me about 6 hours from start and finish.

"Old Hollywood Glam" - Customized Wedding Gown (The Process & The Result)

“The most beautiful clothes that can dress a woman are the arms of the man she loves.
~ Yves Saint Lauren ~

Hello everyone, and Happy Tuesday!

I just got back from Chicago on Sunday, after attending my friend's wedding. I had the pleasure of transforming Eji's wedding dress from plain to glam. It was truly an honor to take on this challenge as I had never worked on anyone's wedding dress before...EVER! But she trusted me enough to help make her dream come true [I just had to use that!]

Here's the transformation from start to finish.
