This past weekend was the start of Jazz Fest in New Orleans! I decided to go a little crazy this year and add try out some hair chalk . I know it's only temporary, but for someone who has never colored their hair, it was kind of a big deal and just love how it came out! I had my hairdresser apply it a few days before the fest and it faded out giving the colored pieces a deep pastel color. (There's actually black, green, and pink in there too) 

Thanks to this fabulous Louisiana heat, I ended up wearing it up for the rest of the day. I'm thinking of wearing it like this during the second weekend to see Foster The People !! *fangirls*

   This past Saturday I had the pleasure of attending and covering the debut inaugural collection ‘’Nee’’ of Sophia Omoro’s label ‘’LadySophia’’. The event was held at the Maison Lefitte in Mandeville Louisiana and began with a celebration party where guests congratulated the designer while sipping cocktails and sampling fancy hor d'oeuvres. There was a runway presentation as well as a dance performance to open and close the show and finally, my personal favorite – a trunk show!

Designer Sophia Omoro’s Mother was a seamstress, which heavily influenced her love and appreciation for fashion. She and her siblings would draw rough sketches and she "would take this from a crude drawing to a pattern, and ultimately a completed garment. Of course, the downside to this was that hems were invariably much longer than requested, the garments much looser, and perhaps worst of all, at least three of the six girls always had the same dress and/or fabric at any given time."

Omoro, who was born in Kenya, said her mother's work was "naively" unappreciated back then, but that the "luxury of well-made, fashionable, 'custom' clothing" ignited a passion that has come to fruition in her new collection.

Her collection was full of brightly colored and beautifully constructed dresses, sheer crop tops, animal skin bags (I wanted all of them) and belts, tribal headpieces, as well as beaded jewelry. The garments, bags and belts are individually hand made in Kenya by her team. Only very limited quantities are made, making the collection very exclusive. 

What really blew me away was her ken attention to detail. The beaded headpieces and jewelry were works of art all on their own and I especially loved all the colors and textures used in each look.

Bravo, LadySophia! Can't wait for next season!

  Outfit Details // Bomber jacket, c/o Charlotte Russe (on sale here) | Striped Top, c/o Anthom (also, on      sale, here ) | Jeans, Forever21 | Rings, Porter Lyons + TrendzNOLA | Heels, Payless (similar here  
 and here) //

Today's look features one of my favorite outerwear pieces from Charlotte Russe! Bomber style jackets are one of my favorites and I love how light and versatile this one is (it even has a removable hood, which I chose to leave out for this look) 

I'm also loving this grey and white striped tee shirt from Anthom. It's so comfortable and goes with just about anything, especially leather pants...

Thanks so much to Charlotte Russe and Anthom for these gorgeous pieces!

I found this adorable printed blouse at Forever21 a few weeks back and totally fell in love with it. It goes great with a black pencil skirt or with a pair of basic skinny jeans.
