GUESS?

Guess who? I know, I look so different to the point when I look at my self in the mirror I see a different person. That's the beauty of switching it up sometimes. Oh how I miss my long hair!! There is a reason for the long hair, but I can't fully reveal yet why, it is a secret at the moment, but stay tuned, but just know that I used to wear my hair long and for almost three years I wore my neutral hair. So it's time for a change. The hair only lasted for two days, after my shoot, because I'm not used to it yet and I wanted to take it off so bad. I got a...

Lady In Red

The color RED makes me so happy. I know I have been obsessed lately with color blocking and playing with patterns. I can't help that this fall is all about colors and It happen to be the time I choose to get more into colors. By that, I meant, starting to add more colors to my closet. Before,  when I would walk into a store, I'd head go right for the neutral colors, the black, tan and white because it just so easy to wear. For a long time I didn't really notice that closet was just black and white. A little bit of color variety but not that much. The same with me and my love for Jeans. I...

Fall With Theory

It has been such a crazy few days you guys, I feel like since I got back from Europe I got hit by so much work and school. That happens right? It's called life; I keep telling myself that. Some of you beautiful people have asked me how I managed my school with my blogging life and I have some answers for you. Firstly, once you have passion for something, that alone keeps you moving forward. Honestly, at first it was so hard to balance it all especially with all the other distraction around me. The first thing I had to do was to keep focus on my goal and not what I don't want to happen. Once I was focused,...

little Miss Sunshine

Hello my loves, happy great start of a new month. I can't believe it's August already, the 29th is going to make SECRETOFDD one year old and I'm going to celebrate the anniversary in Europe.

Alexander Wang And I

  Lately, I have been spending most of my time in dresses. It does have a little to do with how hot it is right now but on the other hand, you just can't go wrong with a little black dress. As for this simple but elegant Alexander Wang dress, I give it a five stars. The funny thing is when I saw this dress it didn't look good at all on the mannequin in the store but was attached to the deep V neck cut and decided to try it on. Once this dress was on me, I didn't want to take it off, seriously guys I wanted to pay for it on and walk out of the store. That's how much...

The Dashiki

A few weeks ago after my parents got married, my  family and I were walking down the street of Indianapolis going to our car all dressed up in our African outfits that my mom friend made for us. I was wearing this beautiful and colorful skirt suit. For my none African friends, we call this traditional style Dashiki. It's a very popular design in the African community, the best part about it is, it comes in different colors and you can get it tailored in different styles. From just a shirt to wear with a jean to dresses, overalls, pants set and more. It's like designing your own clothes just the way you want it. This style I'm wearing was...

Unleash Your Boldness with Jacquard Bomber Print

You heard the saying, if you want to be successful, you have to be bold as well. Boldness stands out from the group. They are confident, courageous, and directed. I believe there is boldness in most people, some just know they are bold and others don't. They have to discover their boldness and take action to better the world around them. My boldness is who I am and helped me in my everyday life. I'm bold through my blog post, I speak out and say what's on my mind to inspire people. Through my school, I work and go to school to build a future and relationships to help people. I show my boldness through fashion, like this beautiful Nastygal Jacquard...

Karima Embellished Leather Skirt

Time flies so fast, it has been a week already since I met my dad for the first time in 9 years. I didn't know what to expect but it all went so smoothly and now it feels like he haven't been away for so long. I spent most of my days in Indianapolis( vacation) talking, watching movies, cooking and driving my father and my little brother everywhere and it feels so good. A few days ago I told my dad that I'm going to make him some of my healthy food because he keeps eating rice and soup (which happen to be my native meal) for breakfast, lunch and dinner. So I did, apparently it was way too healthy for...

Off The shoulder At The Getty

Guys, I'm so excited!! I'm going home today to visit my family, especially my father whom I haven't seen in almost 9 years. I remember the last time I saw my dad, I was a teenager saying bye to my father and going out into the world without my best friend. Coming to America is a big deal for a lot Africans, it was a dream come true for me. I thought I will come to America and my dad and brother would join me later. Little did I knew, it would end up taking over 9 years to be reunited. It's always so hard being away from the people you love the most for such a long time. There were...

Swim Like A Mermaid

Since school is a big part of my life and a lot of work, I have to take off time to pay more attention to my studies. It have been such a tough week, I'll say. Three exams this week and less sleep hahaha, I don't know if my brain can take any more information at this moment so I'm just going to let it all out on the blog for the next few months. I'm so relieved that all my exams are over for now and that I can say, I'm done with school for three months and it's summer!!. I know all my fellow students feels the same, I'm totally with you. It's time to relax, party, travel,...
