...there is reason to believe maybe next year will be better than the last...
For the upcoming New Year's eve celebrations think of going long like Christiana did here:


Sparkling black gown from ASOS; Manolo slides

 Earring from Couture Blowout (Houston), ring from This N That boutique (NYC)


A little cut out at back of dress, who wouldn't love that?
Have a happy New Year everyone!

FEELING BLUESY...


Fendi waist bag (I've had this for years and I continue to love it-- comes in handy during Christmas shopping when one needs both hands to wrestle gifts from poachers)


Asos sweater, Acne high-waisted skinny jeans, and Roberto Cavalli shoes
My hubby walked in on me posing; hence the ridiculous giggles.


Ring was made by the store 19th on Replay with vintage material and stones.



My dinner-- snails from Broken Spoke Cafe (my new favorite place). As a Ghanaian, I am use to bigger snails so I had to order another bowl; definitely time for a visit home.

Have a great weekend everyone!!!


UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Above look made it on fab sugar's look of the week, check out below link if you please (Yeah!).

AVA AND THE BEANSTALK

A couple of months ago, a lovely shop girl offered me 5 magic wands in exchange for me reaching the upper limits on my Nordstrom’s visa.  These miracle wands were to give me stalks of flirty eyelashes that will grace my cheekbones whenever I felt the need to blink…I of course conceded.


Mirror! Mirror! On the wall, which is the fairest one of all…




Guerlain, Lancome Hypnose Drama, Estee Lauder Sumptuous, Nars Hyperlash, or Clinique high impact mascara????



The Mirror answered:
Guerlain can leave one penniless 
Clinique... grantor of the corporate Accountant lashes leaves you with neat and unassuming lashes, 
Hyperlash gives you the lashes of a Vogue staff (the eyelash equivalent of wearing 4 plus inch heels to work-- not bad at all!),
Estee lauder... more thickness and not enough length (gotta have both dear)

I therefore choose...


Hypnose Drama!!!!!!  It gives both thickness and length.

Hope this helps the next time you all are in the market for mascaras.  I also really love the Maybeline mascara with the pink and green packaging-- pick that up from a drugstore if you haven't tried it yet.

Ciao!

The FUR VEST

"No one will ever love me", it said in between sobs;
"but... but... you can get use to me..."*

I believe this is what the fur vest told fashion trendsetters about two years ago.
And yes, dear fur vest; we have certainly gotten use to you...


Fur vest from Blackbird Trading Co on Montrose (Houston); Blue suede booties: French Connection; Jeans R 13 (Barneys)


Earrings: Buffalo Exchange; Ray Ban sunglasses


Watch: Target--  I am no longer in love with bubble gum pink; I have it replaced it with this watch's delicious berry color!




Ring is Alvine's own creation; crochet top is from H&M

Have a great week everyone!
XOXO
