South African fashion kitwear brand, MAXHOSE BY LADUMA, was established in 2010 and I’ve been following them for a while. The aesthetics and beautiful quality of their collections often make me wish I had use for warm clothes in Ghana.
Love, love, LOVE this brand.
I moved to East Legon at the beginning of the year and, as I’ve settled into the area, I’m discovering how quaint and quintessentially middle class the area is. The number of affordable eateries, coffeeshops and boutiques are too many to count. One such shop I discovered, thanks to the amazing Instagram, is Odara.
If you love delicate, yet bold, jewellery, then look no further. Located at the A&C Mall, I was surprised to realised that these beautiful pieces are super affordable as well… some pieces as affordable as GHS 25.00.
Take a look at my favourite pieces from their instagram page:
Long time ago, on a similar (but more personal blog), I used to post about everything I loved – and that included fashion. It’s been a while since I posted anything myself, but 2017 is the year to change that.
Below are a collection of my favourite looks from my favourite designer’s 2017 Autumn/ Winter ready-to-wear collection. Enjoy!
With the festive season quickly approaching, I’ve promised myself to be organized this year and not wait until the last moment to pick up presents for my nearest and dearest. This year, I’ve made a list and I’m getting everyone as personal a gift as I can muster – even if I have to make it myself.
So I’ve been scouring the internet for gift ideas and one of my favorite sites always have some excellent gift ideas. I also love the idea of supporting the small businesses and individuals that sell their stuff there. Its a win-win situation!
Have a look at some of my favorite items I found on the website’s ‘Ultimate Gift Guide’:
Great stylized gift idea for the home lover/ interior decorator. Pillows are handcrafted with authentic African mudcloth sourced from Mali and Northern Ghana (Prices range from $45-$50).
2. Aredite Label
I love monogramed gifts and Aredite Label have a great selection of monogrammed and personalized clutches, bags and scarves. Definitely a generally great gift idea for someone that you don’t know so well (… all you need are initials!).
I love jewelry and I love artisan handcrafted items. Afrohemien have a great etsy page and on it, they have a fun selection of some really creative pieces. I particularly love this page because the iconography on many of their pieces are Ghanaian Adinkra designs, where each design has a specific meaning. A great gift idea if you want to send subliminal messages to someone.
It looks like, in her final days in the White House, Michelle Obama decided to definitely have some fun. I haven’t seen her look so beautiful or so relaxed.
Really looking forward to following both her and her husband during the next phase of their adventure together.
