Another fun collaboration with RedHedCreativeStudio project #ChiChiInTheCity #ChicagoStreetStyle. We shot this entire look at the Dusable bridge, the bridge carries Michigan Avenue across the main stem of the Chicago River in downtown Chicago, Illinois. Unfortunately for us it was also Taste of Chicago weekend so you can imagine how crowded and busy downtown was. We still managed to get some good wide range shot without anyone in the background.
My look for the day was this lightweight semi fitted short sleeve button down shirt, perfect for sunny days or warm nights. It goes perfectly with jeans or a fitted skirt. My button up turned into a sleevless shirt, thanks to my handy dandy scissors.
Never underestimate the power of a button down. Now double that statement when it comes to a classic stripe button down shirt. Button down shirt is one of the most versatile garments a woman could own, from it’s ability to challenge the vibe you are trying to set to overall changing your whole look.
The versatilely can go from high fashion, casual cute, preppy, to the clean crisp look.
The bag I am carrying is by an European desigher Nine by Anita Loncar.
If you really know me you would know that I usually plan and go a bit over board for my birthday.
I get all excited and cray cray about it, countdown the days, bug my sisters and friends with all my silly ideas, go out dancing and head home in the early hours, and basically act like its a super long holiday.
This year I kept things much more mellow if I do say so myself, I celebrated with friends and family I mean that was the best gift anyone could ask for.
My birthday weekend Ended with a Fun Night at Shrine Afrofusion Party Hosted by DIS-entertainment. Did so much in-between my birthday weekend Friday – Sunday… snapchat (chichi_nneka) got all that story.
The Second best part of my birthday was going to Miami that following week!!!!! Third time in Miami but it felt so different cause this time I wasn’t going with friends or my sisters….. I went with my Boyfriend. 🙂
barely took pics in MIA because, basically everyday was a No-MAKEUP day it was so humid I couldn’t take it.
Blushing so hard bae gave me a whole photoshoot I even had to capture the moment
Yall should know he didn’t just sit and agree to a damn photoshoot lmfaoooooo…..The story behind these pictures was; I simply was begging Jolo to take my picture and this nice middle aged caucasian lady heard me and answered my cries. She suggested we both take pictures together and even lead us to diff locations hehehehe …. Low-key she gave us a little interview about our relationship and it turned out she is a photographer and everyday womens journalist of real life stories. She also featured us on her IG page with a nice caption.
Overall My birthday Month was splendid!! now I will forever be turning 25!! its my not so perfect age. 🙂 SUMMER CAN OFFICIAL END NOW! CHURCH AGBASALA!!!
I witnessed my sister cross another milestone in her life. On Saturday August 8th 2015, she graduated from AIU, American International University with a Masters in Human Resources Management. She looked fabulous in her Virgos lounge dress and gold strappy sandals.
I am clearly going to be posting more often on my blog because I figured out how to make my iphone pics more worthy. I seriously cannot remember to take my canon with me at all times, I mean I can barely remember to wear earrings after dressing up (I hate it when I forget to wear earrings… worst feeling ever!!!) not to even talk about bringing my canon with me every time I go out. ANYWAYS, moving along… this past weekend was pretty good; started my Friday at the mall, no I wasn’t shopping I can tell you now I am more of an online shopper, I literally buy everything online… Hair, clothes, shoes, electronics, Gbo Gbo EGbo I buy them online. I ended my FRIDAY at a friends House Party, I think we were celebrating his new job and some other great accomplishments… lol well it was a party sha and I was there with my hookah. God save me this summer cause this hookah thing I will OD on it, we all know too much of anything is not good for you.
SATURDAY was another wedding day, and I decided to make my wedding outfit. Along with a whole lot of girls in the world I am obsessed with FLORAL PRINT! and yes I did put a crown on there just to emphasis on floral being King in all SS14 trend. I try to buy Fabrics that come in wholesale quantity and re-sellers price because I just don’t do it for myself but also for zurikgirl. This Summer ZG will be testing the waters on our own lable ZURIK by zurikgirl. Just a few designs and items will be available coming soon this June at zurikgirl.
I was a little discouraged when I laid it on my bed and it almost looked like my bed-sheets.
Then I got done with my skirt and it looked good.
AFTER I WAS DONE I LOVED IT! EVEN WITHOUT TRYING IT ON!
SATURDAY GETTING READY TO ATTEND THE WEDDING
If you really know me, you would know I am not a fan of Makeup, for me to be a girlie girl I really hate putting makeup on my face unless I need it. It doesn’t help that today its all about contouring of the face and heavy eyebrows; good thing my eyebrows are not thin and I am content with just the regular way of applying makeup until the occasion permits and I have a professional MUA to contour my face to the GODS.
Showing you my face because my sister Yewande is into makeup and she did my sharp smokey eye! which I loved. For all my ZG photo shoots she handles the makeup department and I am very grateful for her.
I did my Lashes myself and well…. I tired lol
SUNDAY CHURCH OUTFIT. I TRIED THIS MIXING PRINT THING AND IT LOOKED GOOD. DIFFERENT SNAKE PRINTS AND COLOR.
AFTER BRUNCH WITH THE FAMILY, I MET UP WITH ONE OF MY GOOD FRIENDS DUPE, SHE’S BEEN TELLING ME ABOUT THIS AMAZING!!!!!!!!! HIDDEN WHOLESALE FABRIC STORE FOREVER!!. BEING THAT THE STORE OWNERS ARE JEWISH, THEY HAVE THE MOST RANDOM STORE HOURS, CLOSED ON SATURDAYS AND OPEN ON SUNDAYS TILL 4PM. OF COURSE AFTER MISSING OUR EXIT AND TURNS A COUPLE OF TIMES WE FINALLY MADE IT TO THE STORE AND HAD ONLY 30 MINUTES TO LOOK AROUND 😦
I FOUND THIS IMPRINT ORGANZA FABRIC AND LOVED IT!!!!
I WILL DEFINITELY BE GOING BACK TO LOOK AROUND! THE STORE IS HUMONGOUS!! AND 30 MINUTES FELT LIKE ONLY 2 MINUTES!
