If you’ve been following my blog, you will know that I love putting black and white outfits together. However this time I thought I will have a bit of fun with a checkered pattern. (Hence the pun in the title) I promise it wasn’t just to show off ūüôā     I couldn’t help but throw on ¬†my Topshop floral duster jacket for both practicality and warmth     This contrast asymmetric skirt¬†from Missguided was an absolute steal paired priced at ¬£8 paired with my Burberry Cape, gave¬†my ensemble a

Let’s see a show of hands if you have a dress that was bought for a specific occasion and since you wore it on that special day it has been hidden in the dark abyss also known as back of the wardrobe/closet. I mentioned in last week’s post (click here to read it) I meticulously plan my birthday to a tee with what to wear being of the optimum importance. My green and olive tulle dress was one of the 2 outfits¬†¬†I bought for my 24th birthday celebration to afternoon

So this year, I turned 26, still¬†21 in my head… Anyways over¬†the last few months I have come to the realisation who I am has certainly changed.¬†Comparing the version of myself in my early 20s¬†with the¬†late 20’something Barbara there is a significant difference. I will list a few things that are certainly different. My tolerance level has drastically decreased. I no longer have the patience for toxic people, toxic situation, toxic relationships, toxic attitudes, toxic conversation. I simply¬†put on¬†my MJ black¬†studded¬†gloves on¬†and do the moon walk away from all the

I was super excited when I bought this dungarees from Pretty Little Things online website. However, what I was unsure about was how a pair of dungarees would look on me as the last time I¬†saw myself in one,¬†when mother bought me a denim style pair at the age of 12. I proceeded cautiously with held breath as I keyed in my debit card details… This was either going to be a moment of fashion genius or an epic fashion fail   ¬† Am sure we all too familiar with

Hey everyone, sorry it has been a while and I went MIA. I have been inundated and extremely preoccupied with my job, plus sometimes it is good to take a break from something so that one can come back with a renewed mind, You might notice a few changes with the site, this is the hard-work of my amazing friend Alex who gifted me with this theme as my birthday present then further went ahead to help me install it. It is not quite where I want it to be

I write this blog post with a lot of happiness in my heart. There are times when you try so hard and it takes a long time to see the result of that hard work. I can’t emphasise how much there is the right time for things to happen. Unfortunately I can’t share in detail what brings me this sort of happiness however I want to encourage anyone reading, who is putting in a lot of hard work right now and not seeing the result to hang in there. It

I went shopping with an old friend who happened to be in town because she had a flight into London. Working as an air hostess certainly has its pecks. Seeing as we had not seen each-other in a long time, the plan was to have brunch and go shopping (my favourite sport). We made our way down to Bond Street the loud chime of the clock told me Selfridges was open…Our day could begin, I was keen to show her a part of Selfridges most people don’t know exists. We

For Victoria who was a bit bored of reading all the “floral” spring inspired blog posts. The seventies was when fashion became expressive. Think fringe pieces, tie and dye shirts and clogs. It was also the birth of the wedgies, one- piece swimsuits and jersey wrap dress. Hot pants, culottes, maxi evening gowns and even his/hers outfits were all the rage. I have put together a look that can be replicated using modern pieces with a nod to the 70’s. On the Fringe Click here to buy Click here to

It’s that time of the year; the sun is out very early sometimes as early as 6am. The thin curtains in my room mean I get a full beam of sun rays directly on my face.. Who needs an alarm when you’ve got sunshine? The birds are chirping, the air is crisp and life feels good. Yes it is spring, my favourite season as it’s not too hot, it’s not too cold, and it‚Äôs simply perfect. The time has come to transition from your thick winter coat to soft wonderful

I got introduced to designer Sabah Mauladad of Bibisab luxury neckwear¬†¬†by my friend Victoria. With a well read education in fashion and decades of experience working with some of the leading names in luxury fashion, it’s no surprise that she has produced what I would describe as a refreshing unique addition to any wardrobe. When Victoria contacted me that Sabah was going to be attending London Fashion Week and needed a blogger to write about her collection, I was beyond delighted and simply couldn’t pass on the offer. Her collection
