Favourite High Street Buys

For a great outdoor fashion shoot, all you need are- perfect weather, outfits, company and a big smile. Today's shoot was just that. Saturday's are usually relaxing, but for this fashion editor, it is the perfect time to create fashion forward outfits. Below are images from the shoot with new arrivals at Topshop and H&M. Here is how to create a new look....moving from the natural hair colour to Cha-Cha Rouge. Complimenting a new look with a coral lacy dress and nude heels.

Accessory: Pyramid ring & noddles ear ring both from Topshop
Make-up: KIKO, MAC & Sleek

Top model @AFWL. She is awesome! Would like to interview her. 

Afro-print jumpsuit with a HOOD! Rock that out! 

Too busy talking.....that's what African ladies do best. They are always catching up with friends even if they live together :)

Two words: Simple and Sassy
If this is not fashion addict best spot, I don't know what to say. I adore the head-wrap, and the oversize bag too. On my wish list! Tried the head-wrap a while back, so difficult to do though! *Thumps* up or down!

10 Hot New Bags

One of the most important accessory in your wardrobe is your handbag. They are visual art with delightful patterns to the female arm. We need them all day, everyday. Bags are important accessories because they express our personality and protect our personal belongings wherever we go. The mistake we make is owing too many, therefore loosing the purpose of styling them. It is advisable that you invest in unique styles and colours that can be wearable differently without loosing the edge of your style. We often think that we don't have to wear the same things twice. The question is....why not?

Bags have evolved considerable over the years. They are constantly on the extremes; oversize bags for weekend getaways or the gym and the really small clutches that your perfume cannot fit into. The picture below depicts variety of styles and colours for different occasions. I particularly adore "Kate Spade New York Clutch Bag £223.10 (top right). It is unique, stylish and definitely worth every penny. I would style it with a lacy purple dress, black stiletto and gold jewelleries. Yep....colour YORK it ladies!

From top left: New look multi-coloured clutch bag £15.99, Black snakeskin £16.99, Kate Spade New York "brushstroke" £223.10 Nordstrom.

From below left: Sara 3 in 1 block £25 Boohoo, Ellie Saab grid box clutch £747- Boutique 1

These bags are handy for work and evening outings with the girls. Adding colour to your fall season fashion is amazing as it brightens your outfit creating the right attention. The bright green bag from Ralph Lauren is an A-list choice. Get shopping ladies.
