Kola is a director, hip-hop socialite and designer of her own clothing company, Violette. She is a New York based designer who is of Trinidadian descent and she has just come out with a new Caribbean Inspired t-shirt line. If you want to read more about it, check out the article on fashion bomb daily.
I’m sorry to say I’m not in love with this line. I think it’s cute, but wasn’t wowed by it. Sorry, Vash. However, I did like the ting-a-ling shirt, it’s too cute. Plus, who doesn’t like Ting? No really, I want to know,who!?!
What I really don’t like is the price. If these were US$15, I would snag one, but at US$40, nope, can’t do it. It’s a little to rich for my blood. Sorry, VashVash. She also has an accesory line with mirrors, lighters etc. etc. So I think I’ll pick me up a keychain at US$8, now that’s what I call a deal!
I will be keeping my eye on Kola, I think we’re going to see some great things out of her in the future. Hopefully, she will continue making Caribbean inspired fashions. REPRESENT!
Okay, I think the tide is finally changing. I have been looking at my wonderful white nails and loving them a little bit less, day by day…sigh! I am beginning to feel an itch that is telling me to experience new colors, textures, designs.
I was inspired by some of the funky, yet grown up designs from a London nail salon, WAH Nails. As I said before, I don’t like long nails, airbrush or tons of color, so this seems like something I can deal with. At this moment I have 10 different white polishes, so I have to get a few more colors before I start on this journey.
Some of these seem like they can be done without going to a salon, I’m going to try the do-it-yourselfer route. I found this handy little chart for those who are thinking of going the DIY route too.
First, I need to get my nails back in order. Right now I wouldn’t show y’all a close up of these cuticles for anything. Sorry, we’re still getting to know one another ;)
Just to get us started, I added a quick and easy DIY nail design–leopard print. If anyone does it, please share.
