Saturday, July 9, 2016


'It is what it is’. Such a famed catchphrase. It is what it is. It may sound rather cliche and somewhat trite, but valid regardless. And I’m talking about my love for all things crop, lace up and distressed. We fell for each other right off, the power of reciprocity, :). They’re popping up everywhere cos they’re trending and your girl is not crying uncle anytime soon. I’m guessing you’re not either. Go ‘us’! The heat is on anyhow. 

There is a plethora of ways to style crop tops of course and today I’m showing it with high waisted distressed denim like I did here. Feeling a little bare? Top your crop top with a duster. One with compartments aka pockets like this one, a repeat offender previously styled here was an ideal coordinate and ensured a harmonious flow. I completed the look with pom fur heels and a choker given to me by my son on mother’s day. A ruby stone set in a copper frame, one of my most treasured processions. He snoops out the best gifts for me. Mother’s Day 2015, he gave me a beautiful print bag which I really should style here soon as well.

So this is a quick share of my look to a 4th of July party hosted by my friend. I thought I gave bada*s parties but this gal is off the charts! I kid you not. Not a fleeting second was spent on aimless banter. Just fun, that much of which should probably be illegal. Or not. 

How was your week? Mine was awesome, goes without saying, :)). Busy too. My little girl is leaving to Canada with my mom for a month. Today she went 'mom will you cry when I leave'? I was like nope, why would I cry. She went 'cos you cry for everything'. 
OMG!

Anywho, SONG REC. for this week is Don't Let Me Down By The Chainsmokers feat. Daya. Love it! Volume turned all the way up. You?

So so sad what's happening in the US! May the souls of all the deceased rest in peace, Amen. 
Peace Y'all!

  5. You're so chic and so badas*, even in casuals. Fab Fashionista! Love the story at the end about your little girl. You really cry about everything? Such a softie. Beautiful inside out. Yeah, it's horrible what's going on in our country. Like MLK Jr. said, "“Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." Da_Cheech

  14. Wow, dear, looking so fantastic! Fun shoes, cool glasses and so hot in those jeans, especially from the back! But it was the sexy top that stole the most of my attention. The way it holds your wonderful, full breasts is so exciting, so arousing, and that alluring, gorgeous belly underneath ... I had to really work to make it all the way to shot six before I could not resist any more. Just to exciting for my little willpower, but wonderful in the finishing to be sure ;) But rest assured I returned and took in the last few stunning shots as well. So gorgeous, dear, and so sweet! I really appreciate your fantastic comment on my poem. It sounds like an issue we are fully together on. Happy weekend to you! Kisses

  17. Idu, you definitely put the VA in va,va,voom! You are ready for action! I can't imagine anybody giving a bad*ass*er party than you,but I am sure you were the life of her party. Such a fun look. And it sounds like you and your kiddos are pretty close. I like that. Enjoy your weekend,mama!!

  18. what a gorgeous outfit! I love it both with and without the sleeveless duster coat!

    Those ripped jeans are simply to die for....and they look fantastic on you. Fabulous heels....and I do like the cropped top. You look stunning Idu!!!! I really like this cropped trend. I like to see cropped tops worn with normal and high rise jeans (and skirts) but I'm not too keen on wearing it with low rise jeans ( but that may be just because I have a short torso and I don't like low rise anything:)

    I hope your daughter will spend a lovely month!

    I'm the type that cries often too...yesterday I cried when I watched a documentary about Mary's meals. They showed a little boy in Africa who collects and sells sand after school every day and he dreams of becoming a pilot....and he has the most charming smile ever. It really touched my heart to see how brave and positive he is.

  36. You look amazing,and that photo of the funky heels are perfection. I hardly wear denim, but lately I've been in a denim wearing craze in my wardrobe. So upsetting and sad to hear about what's been happening in the US recently. Love first, instead of hate and violence. <3
