Gimme More Flare

Happy February, sunshine! This week has been a whirlwind for me. So many meetings and appointments to keep up with. I wake up and before I know it, the day's gone. I'm glad though because tomorrow, I'm seeing a BØRNS concert! *jumps up and down like a true fan girl* Being excited is such an [...]

Disco Disco

Although I draw my inspiration from basically everywhere, I'll have to say that the 70s are my favorite period in fashion history. Flared bottoms, a-line skirts, chunky heels, high waists; that era calls to me so much. I love my flared bottoms to sweep the ground if not I find it way too awkward. This [...]

This Christmas

Merry Christmas and Happy Boxing day! I went for a relative's birthday party! Yes, she shares the same birthday as Jesus. It was a great time with food and lovely company. I've been visiting many family members and friends and it absolutely blows my mind that they know about Miss LAJA! Hearing the things they [...]

Purple Enough?

Today's outfit is too bright for life and I definitely need the brightness and colour in my life considering the tragedies that plagued the news this past week.

I really do believe African prints will never go out of style or become "cliche" like I've been seeing around lately. Miss LAJA believes it will continuously evolve alongside the culture and they are [...]

The Butterfly Effect

Happy Wednesday! Here's another vintage ankara piece that belongs to my mum and I have now permanently borrowed, hehe! I'm appreciating how the cold weather is being delayed here in North Carolina but loh and behold, the cold gradually seems to be winning *insert sad face*   Anyways, while taking these pictures, a man commented [...]

LAJA Unseen #8

  I went out to dinner then to a Broadway show last night and saw Beauty And The Beast! It was really good but I'm yet to see another Broad way performance that would top Wicked (at least for me). When it comes to movies and TV shows, I'm a crier. Correction, a bawler. Literally [...]

African Explosion Fashion Show

  Hello, lover! If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you know I went for a fashion show this past Saturday. I did something super embarrassing that you can read about here. It consisted of clothing made with various African prints and over 6 designers showcased their collections. As you can imagine and also [...]
