Hair Diaries: Transition + Tumblr

I recently decided to transition from relaxed hair to natural. I found that I needed constant inspiration to continue on with my goal so I created a Tumblr. It's simply my open diary of images, music and sometimes short written words about my transition. It is really personal to me. I will make a follow up 'Hair Diary' post about my transition shortly, let me know if you want one :)
If you enjoy beautiful hair, go take a look & don't be shy to follow.

OOTD: The Puffer Vest

I saw this vest at The Gap & fell in love immediately. The last time I bought a Gap piece and fell in love was circa 'Gap Sweater' days. You guys know what I'm talking about right? They came in every color of the rainbow with big block letters on the front with The Gap Logo. I had a few, I won't lie.

I paired it with a few of my favorite pieces. My inner tomboy shines in this outfit. But I couldn't let my girly-side die out, I got shellac nails & it is now a new addiction. It is pure nail love.

 Pants: Wilfred
Shirt: Vintage Polo
Nails: Shellac Hollywood
Vest: The Gap

Outfit of The Day: Relaxation Station

 On Saturday I was in need of a relaxing day. As the school semester winds down post-grad schooling is proving to be a lot more intense than I imagined.

I decided to spend the day with one of my girlfriends. We did brunch, nails and some much needed chit chat. Think mimosas, french toast & shellac! Basically heaven.

The weather has been warmer than usual here in Toronto especially since it's November. I went with a simple outfit, as per usual.

Side note: I know I'm not the only one who feels uber posh when wearing fur.

Pants: Roots
Cardigan: Zara Mens
T-shirt: Zara Basics
Fur: H&M
Boots: Aldo
Clutch: American Apparel

Outfit of the Day: SUITable Choice

Last Sunday I woke up feeling like a boss. We all have our days, don't act like you don't wake up feeling bossy. I dress depending on my mood so naturally a suit was what I wanted to wear. I paired it with an ankara (African fabric) bow tie because it was International Sunday at my church and I had to represent Nigeria some way!

The weather was beautiful, it seems like lately the sun always comes out on Sunday. I LOVE it.

Reassure me that my 'boss' tendencies are felt by other people as well, does you mood affect your dressing?

I know band-aids come in that 'nude' color but really, they should come in darker tones. Don't they know I like my band-aids well blended in my pictures?!

Inspiration : Dr. Martens

I've been having fun with my new camera lately snapping everything and everyone in my field of vision. 
I took a few quick shots of these Docs on the train. I love them, tattered, destroyed but still effortlessly stylish.

Dior Le Vernis: Exquis

My favorite nail polish right now is Dior Le Vernis in the color Exquis. It's the definition of beautiful. Upon first glance it reminded me of Chanel Quartz. But upon second look it's safe to say they are completely different colors. Exquis is an olive green/brown base with gold shimmer running through it. It's unique, not overly-glittery or tacky, and applies opaque in one coat. All these elements make it a keeper. Add to the fact that Dior makes the BEST nail polish brush ever, it's not surprising I've been wearing this non-stop for a month.

This color is set to release in Dior's Holiday 2011 collection.

No Words.

Some days I don't have much to say. I took these shots the other day & rather enjoy them.
