African Prints Have Hit the Market


African Products which used to be unnoticed or unknown, even with their good quality, are now given their due attention. For instance, African fabrics, which used to be popular only among specific cultures, have reached “trendy” status of global magnitude.

A day doesn’t pass without seeing women wearing those colorful, elaborately-printed scarves, wraps, blouses, skirts, dresses and suits. Sometimes, they adorn their clothing with laces that complement their outfit. Women with babies garb their little ones with attractive playsuits, onesies and bibs and even cover their baby carriers with African fabrics. Not to be outdone, men love to sport their jackets, polo shirts, shorts, trousers and turbans, all made of these materials. Most often the materials, clothes and styles we see with vibrant colors are derived from African print styles in mind.

What makes them so popular? Why are they becoming the fabrics and design choices of so many? They are strikingly beautiful, durable and lightweight, making them one of the most versatile fabrics in the world today.

Jennifer Hudson’s daring and dominatrix look on the blue carpet – Yes/No? |

Jennifer Hudson

Jennifer Hudson

Jennifer Hudson is definitely loving her slim and sexy body and is showing it!

Rocking a tight strappy bondage style dress to the 100 year anniversary of the Brown Shoe Company last week, Jennifer looked daring and dominatrix-esque on the blue carpet.

She wore a daring Agent Provocateur  Lace Up Dress, paired with leather knee-high boots, red lips and a retro pixie haircut, for her performance at the event in New York.

We are loving the sexy look and she is definitely on trend with the fashion world taking cues from hit Series Game of Thrones’ medieval times style. Are we head over heels for the look? Sort of. But we would have preferred if she had ditched the boots for some sexy stilettos. What say…? 🙂

Now, check out the dress modeled below.


Share your thoughts on her look. Is it sexy or a bit over the top?

Paige Denim is the first pair of designer jeans that are an absolute mainstay in our denim wardrobe because of how amazing every jean they have FITS. They are one of the few that fits those slightly curvy waist-to-hip ratio without having to walk around with a waist gap. So I’m always excited and genuine in recommending Paige Denim as a valuable premium purchase. You won’t regret their denim!! 🙂

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Are you sort of a last-minute kind of girl. Birthdays tend to sneak up on you, as do holidays like Mother’s Day. Blogging, however, requires things to be done ahead of time. That said, I have some things thought out for Mother’s Day this year. Oh well, here’s a few last minute gift ideas just in case you’re still wondering what to do for your mom for Mother’s Day.


Flowers are always a nice idea. You can make mom tissue paper flowers…


… or give her real ones. These are just small pots of gerber daisies that can be picked up at the nursery and stuck in a wooden whiskey box. You can find small wooden crates at thrift stores, or pick up a new one at the liquor store. Use the box and save the bottle to give to your dad for Father’s Day! 🙂


You can also buy flowers at the store (or pick some from your garden) and make your own bouquet for mom.


Umm… chocolate is always good. This chocolate cherry cake would be a nice addition to a Mother’s Day brunch.

As would these super easy chocolate croissants. Yum!! 🙂


You could also make her small silhouettes of her grandchildren, or big ones if you have the time!

Not a gift giver? Most moms also like spending time with their children and grandchildren. Take her someplace special like your local arboretum! 🙂

Do You Just Love African Clothes?

Many people look at an outfit of traditional African clothes and may not realize the cultural importance that they have. There is a lot of history that is woven into garments made of traditional African textiles and the styles reflect thousands of years of cultural changes and the influence that other cultures have had on many different African tribes throughout the continent.


Many people have seen the cloth that African clothes are made of. Traditionally, the fabric is usually very brightly colored and is a form of wearable art. The patterns and colors vary from one region to another and the techniques for spinning thread and weaving the fabric are handed down from generation to generation. Often women would be responsible for spinning thread and in many cultures it was actually the men that did the weaving of the fabric.

African clothes are usually loose fitting and very comfortable. An outfit may vary from region to region. In some areas, a long robe or dress may be worn by both men and women. They may also be influenced by the cultures from other countries which surround an area where a piece of clothing comes from. Full African outfits normally also include a head wrap or hat that varies from region to region.

One beautiful outfit that can look wonderful at an African wedding or other important event is the Ariya. This is an African woman’s outfit that is made up of four individual pieces. It usually includes a Buba (blouse), Iro (wrapper), Gele (head wrapping) and Ipele (shawl). These pieces go together and form a loose and comfortable African dress that may be available in many different styles, patterns and colors. There are other outfits which look very similar but which are from different geographical areas of Africa.

Men who are getting married may be interested in traditional African clothing such as the Agbada. It includes a long, flowing shirt, a pair of pants which are worn under the robe, a hat and a robe which is normally worn over the shirt. They are usually heavily embroidered in patterns that have cultural and spiritual significance.

If you are not interested in wearing a complete outfit of African clothes, consider using traditional fabrics such as Aso oke fabric to make part of your outfit. In fact, it is becoming quite normal to blend African clothing with Western style outfits in order to express your heritage.
