Fashion has been my love from a very young age to the point I decided to turn my hobby into a career.
It’s 2018, yet I can barely name one black female singer in the Uk right now.

This fashion week, I went on the 3rd day.As usual, it was filled with street stylers and OH BOY!!How I love street style.If you wonder what street style actually means: It’s not your mainstream fashion.As the name says, it comes from the streets, it is urban, usually very trendy clothing.Most street style looks are usually inspired from high fashion, couture, hippie, bohemian style, psychedelic imagery, punk fashion, Gothic, preppy, androgynous, etc… View Post
I might have been born in the 90’s but the 80’s glamour remains a favorite. Especially when it comes to making a statement.Finding something to wear for a night out in West end is usually most women nightmare or where the fun actually start for others.
But in this particular evening,I channeled a 80’s glamour look.Which consisted in a neon silky one shoulder dress,paired with dark brown tights and a rose gold pumps to compliment the silkiness of the dress.Then I added a statement necklace and a vintage pair of earrings as back in the 80’s,more was more and that resonates just fine with me.To finish, a faux fur jacket was a must to exude an overall Afro chic 80’s glamour.
Ladies here is the trick to easily find what to wear for a night out:
Hi everyone. I have not been this excited about writing a post in a while. Summer in London hasn’t been the best, so when it was nice and warm last weekend, I couldn’t help but get ready and go on my touristic journey around London.
Being much in need of inspiration, I decided to go to Notting Hill gate market. It’s probably one of the most iconic place in London and it even has a film named after it, so if you are a sucker for romantic movies like me and have not watched ‘Notting Hill’, please go and do so!
London has many cool markets,pubs and parks. But Notting Hill has to be one of my favorite spot. Situated just few minutes away from Portobello road market, that I absolutely love, you can be sure to find beautiful vintage pieces every time you visit.The stalls are always full of stylish gems and even some unique high end designers items can be found.
Whether you are looking for an authentic vintage Chanel bag or a 70’s Balenciaga sapphire pair of earrings, or even some of the rarest Yves Saint Laurent brooches or rings, well you might just find your luck in the shops of Portobello road market.
After deciding where I was going, I had to dress accordingly. I wanted to match the colourful and cool surroundings of Portobello market especially as it was sunny.
I wore this red stripes skirt and matched it with an Aztec prints tank top plus the oversize jacket. And nothing screams cool like adding some converse trainers to an outfit.
I remember visiting Portobello road for the first time, I was so in awe of the colours, the cute corner coffee shops and the romantic restaurants on Sundays afternoon. I just always have this sense of belonging every time I visit. A feeling that the place has your name written all over it. Maybe they should rename it “Cecile’s Place”…Aha,I like to dream!! Well that feeling has not changed. I’m still as in love as the first time.
I am always in search of new places and spots to visit, so I would like to know which ones are your favorites and why? Which places scream ‘home’ or ‘belonging’ to you? I would really appreciate if you leave your comments below. I love reading them.x
Sometimes I just dress casually,wear comfortable shoes, take my camera with no plans or ideas and just go wherever my mind leads me. View Post
