Summer Whites

Summer how I love you!  Whites are right   Hearts are light Brighter days with shorter nights  Endless colorings within sight Trees are bloomed, gloom forgotten Summer summer what a delight  Twilight rays that paint the sky Stars at night shine so bright Priceless days with hope and light Laughter sound so often heard Summer summer with sunset of golden hue. Outfit details  Dress: Finery Shoes: Mango Bag: Thrifted Necklace: H&M

I am a sucker for a good classic however with all good classics, there is room to put a modern spin on it. And the same can be said for how I styled this look In 1960s, hippies first came up with the idea of recycling old denim jeans into long denim skirts, by opening the inseams and inserting pieces of triangular denim. Brief history  Denim skirts were first introduced in mainstream fashion lines in the 1970s. In 1983, denim miniskirts—with a pencil skirt silhouette—became a popular teenage fashion. They

Celebrating the best way I know how, by putting text to a HTML script along with some visuals. What a year it’s been! With Highs & Lows, Goodbyes to Hellos, lots of Laughter & fewer Tears, sometimes Tears & Laughter simultaneously. Anger & unprecedented Happiness. Friendships & Heartbreaks. Healing on the inside & Transformation, 70% Winning & 30% Loosing, Strutting & Tripping. Finally, Successes & Triumph I want to revisit this post next year, re-evaluating with the intention of measuring my growth. Knowing everything has been done to my best ability,

If The Hat Fits

You know what they say, “If the cap fits, wear it” My saying goes thus, “If you find a hat that you slay so hard in, never stop wearing it” I have a profound love for hats and undoubtedly a boaters hat, is my favourite. Brief History Boater hats were originally designed to be worn by men it became popular as a formal summer hat in the latter part of the 19th century. It ended up being widely adopted as a semi-formal hat with school uniforms and also as an unofficial part of

Hey everyone, today’s blog is a collaboration with a brand called Madkollection. It is made in Manchester brand however the fabric is used, is Nigerian material popularly known as Ankara.

Spring Whites

Hey lovelies, so the sun has been shining in London and I must say it feels sooooo good. I marvel at how the weather has such great impact on our mood. It is no secret that Londoners are one of the grumpiest people in the world. You will be sat in a carriage packed full and everyone does their utmost to avoid eye contact. You’ll be breaking the public transport social code if you said good morning or hello to the person sat next to you. However with the slightest hint

“Hi I am Barbara, I am style chameleon and a Zara addict”. What this means is I love to wear different looks. Be it a nod to street style look, ultra feminine styles or something in between grunge and rock chic and 70% of my wardrobe is from Zara. I saw this skirt in the Zara sale and knew immediately the styling possibilities would be endless. It was a piece I could envisage myself wearing thoroughly in the spring and transition into my summer wardrobe. The salmon colour looked extremely flattering against my

Fishnets are a massive trend right now and I couldn’t resist trying my hands on this trend but of course with the added sprinkle of “Barbara”.  It was going to be classic fishnet (classic because of the size of the holes) styled with a few special bits to create the extra oomph that I love my outfits to have. First look was styled with wet look skinny jeans gave it that biker edgy feel paired with my classic black courts. So there I was happily minding my own business and scouting

Valentine’s Day

There she was, staring out into the streets as the rain slowly trickled down against the window. There was a mellow tip tap as the rain hit the glass and the wind whistled gently. It was a cold winter evening on February the 13th to be precise. The same happy ending she had played out over and over till it felt almost as real as the raindrops against the window pane, the fantasy which she would  retell paints the picture of a day with the perfect ending. The day always began in
