Inamunai African Fashion

Inamunai: The Fashionable Art From African Couture Designers

We haven’t indulged in some beguiling fashion in a while, so we’re diving right in with the exquisite offerings from Inamunai. One of our favorite things about this African fashion label is it isn’t just one brand, but a collective of wonderful African designers. You truly get experience a vast amount of talent from the birthplace of humanity. The Inamunai brand was founded by Mariam Garuba, a native Nigerian with a passion for clothes and dressmaking. Her online shop features several well-known African couture designers, whose bold style you’ll fall head over heels over. We certainly did when we first laid eyes on some of the extraordinary looks from the Inamunai runway presentation from Harlem Fashion Week.

Inamunai African Fashion

As you can see, every look from this collection boasts a unique and strong style aesthetic.  The vibrant colors and eyecatching Ankara-inspired prints enhance the collection’s chic silhouettes and bold shapes. The collection is teeming with details; you’ll find structured pieces, extravagant collars and sleeves, the juxtaposition of prints, and edgy color combinations. You’ll love the collection’s color palette of dark blues, reds, pinks, and greens. Most, if not all, of the pieces, are made from 100% wax cotton and other woven fabric.

Inamunai African Fashion

We also love the versatility of the collection. There are several looks to take you from day to night, from brunch to nights out on the town. In celebration of daring style, why not embrace the full striking attitude of the collection by layering multiple prints. The lesser courageous can use the prints as a pop of color to liven up a solid or monochromatic look.

Inamunai African Fashion

We see the influences of African fashion sent down multiple runways during fashion week every year. Alas, those are merely interpretations from mostly European designers. The Inamunai collection lets you celebrate African heritage with authentic designs from actual African artisans. If you’re looking to add this global influential fashion aesthetic to your style closet, look no further than Inamunai.

Global Transfusion T-SHIRTS

Global Transfiguration: How a Simple T-Shirt Is Trying to Save the World

As we become more aware of environmental changes impacting our planet, we’re adopting more sustainable practices in everyday life. Americans use 40% less natural gas in their homes than 40 years ago. As we learn more about sustainability, this is translating into more than just energy use.

Eco-conscious company Global Transfiguration is introducing a collection of sustainable prints to allow you to wear your environmentally beating heart on your sleeve. In partnership with The Climate Reality Project, Global Transfiguration artist and founder Stephon Stewart hopes that his new line of prints will inspire change in everyday life, from the 33% of renters who move each year to the toddler just starting to learn about how the world works.

Global Movement by Tee

“Earth is our only home,” Stewart explains. “This is our opportunity to change the course of history for future generations on our planet.”

His oil paintings have hit a chord with people both young and old. Featuring 16 versions of the earth in various forms, each one represents a possible future we might experience.

Global Transfusion

For example, the fiery “Inferno” showcases a red earth meant to be viewed through an infrared radiation telescope. In this version of a future earth, carbon dioxide has done its worst, getting trapped inside the atmosphere to warm the planet to obscene temperatures. But the greenhouse effect isn’t the only thing we have to worry about.

Global Transfusion T-SHIRTS

Another, titled “Dry,” shows the earth as a potential barren wasteland. Now that the United States has hit a high of creating 4.3 trillion documents each year, this is a scary — but very real — possibility. But Stewart’s prints aren’t all terrifying. “Wet” is meant to pay tribute to the water that sustains the planet while “Gaia” honors the greenery of earth and the harmony between humans and nature.

Best of all? Part of the proceeds goes toward a monthly donation directly to The Climate Reality Project.

So far, the Global Transfiguration campaign has 16 eco-friendly T-shirts available, eight different totes, and a fleece hoodie. On the shirts, the globe rests right on the wearer’s chest, an emblem akin to the logo of a superhero doing their part to save the planet.

Global Transfusion teeGlobal Transfusion tee

“Everyday citizens can wear the shirts and feel like superheroes,” Stewart continues. “Maybe one can grow up to be the next Albert Einstein and create a new energy source.”

As such, the shirts are available in men’s, women’s, children’s, and even toddler’s sizes. In the fight to save the planet for the next generation, Stewart and Global Transfiguration hope that everyone will partake in the project and “Wear the change.”

Measure & Made Custom Jeans

Measure & Made Jeans and Pants: One Size Fits YOU

We all come in different shapes and sizes, each equipped with our own personal style.  So it’s no surprise that custom, made-to-measure clothing is becoming the go-to shopping option. Did you know that an estimated 68% of American women are over size 8? And even a group of women who all wear the same size can come in different shapes. These are just a few of the reason why custom, made-to-measure clothing is making an impact and why Measure & Made jeans and pants will be your go-to. They are the best fitting pants you’ll ever wear.

Measure & Made Custom Jeans Measure & Made Custom Jeans

For any woman who has struggled to find pants that fit properly, Measure & Made is your savior. As women, we are already fighting the old “one size fits all” absurdity but we’re now finding that what’s supposed to be our size, doesn’t quite fit either. We (and several women we know) are “blessed” with ample thighs, a bodacious booty, and a smaller waist; so there’s always an issue getting jeans and pants that properly fit our thighs, hips, butt, and waist.

Measure & Made Custom Jeans

Any woman whose waist is smaller than her hips and thigs knows about the dreaded waist gap. Thanks to Measure & Made unique patented sizing system, Fitlogic, we found the perfect fitting jeans. How does it work? The Co-Founders behind Measure & Made, Cricket Lee and Natasha Gabrielle Lee, conceptualized and created the Fitlogic technology, fit quiz, and a size shape decimal system to come up with your personal fit identification over a 15-yr period. So you know they are serious about making sure their pants and jeans fit perfectly.

Measure & Made Custom Jeans Measure & Made Custom Jeans

The Fitlogic Fit Quiz features questions about your height, where you gain weight the most, where do your pants feel the tightest and the type of pants you’re looking for.

Measure & Made Custom Jeans Measure & Made Custom Pants

After taking the fit quiz, our perfect size and jeans shape were classified as 10.3. Measure & Made offers women’s pants, jeans, capris, and shorts in sizes 0-18. They offer a 30-day money back guarantee and next month, they’ll be extending their sizes with the addition of sizes 20-28.

We’ll be rocking our Measure & Made jeans this week, so be sure to keep an eye on our Instagram page for our fit opinion.

Style Doesn’t Stop: Nic+Zoe Spring 2019 Collection

Although the spring season hasn’t been the amazing weather experience we’ve been wanting, we know it will get better. We’re a bit late on highlighting this collection but we have lots of time left to wear these amazing pieces. As stated, style doesn’t stop, for anything, including bad weather. Today we’re sharing some of our favorite pieces from the Nic+Zoe Spring 2019 Collection.

There’s so much to love about the Nic+Zoe Spring 2019 Collection. Every item is effortlessly chic and flattering, with pieces that are essential to your wardrobe. This season’s collection brings wonderful textures, wardrobe staples, statement basics that coordinate very well with each other and what’s already in your closet.

If you looking for everyday style, foundation pieces, or stylishly comfortable clothing, you will find those in the Nic+Zoe Spring 2019 Collection. The majority of the collection boasts neutral colors. Expect lots of black and white, light sage, pale blues, soft pinks, and greys with pops of colors like red here and there. There are several pieces we have our eye on. The white On Board Denim Jacket is the perfect Spring topper; you’ll love the fluffy texture of the sleeveless Clip it Up Shift Dress and the coordinating long-sleeved Clip it Up Blouse with split sleeves with ties; the lightweight Plush Party Cardigan (available in white and black) that’s perfect for the office.

We also love the multitasking Dusk Dress Jacket, a modern shape that can be a topper or belted to be worn as a dress. Speaking of dresses, we must note the feminine silhouettes in the collection, available in both woven and knitwear options. The fashion options from Nic+Zoe are perfect for those who want to stay away from the overly structured style in both their work and personal lives.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on the looks from the Nic+Zoe Spring 2019 Collection. Do you have any favorite looks from this season’s collection?

How to Dress For the Job You Want Without Going Broke

You CAN Improve Your Professional Clothing Collection Without a Big Budget

Every year, there are a staggering 1,240,000,000 pairs of denim jeans sold worldwide. But while Americans tend to favor casual clothing, those garments aren’t always appropriate for the workplace. That said, having a separate work wardrobe may not always seem feasible, especially for those who are looking to move up in the professional world but don’t have the financial means to do so. However, not all is lost. There are ways to obtain a workwear collection without breaking the bank. Here’s how to dress for the job you want without going broke.

Colorful clothes on racks in a fashion boutique

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average American spends $1,800 on clothes every year. But workwear pieces tend to be of higher quality than casual apparel, which typically comes with a higher price tag. One good thing is that more businesses are opting for a less dressy approach to the office. Approximately 57% of organizations view employee retention as a problem; this is prompting many employers to embrace a more casual work environment in the hopes of attracting more applicants and enticing them to stay. And while brands are starting to offer pieces that find a balance between casual and formal for women who work in less stuffy workplaces, that doesn’t always mean these pieces are overwhelmingly affordable.

woman looking at clothes from bestlifeonline.com

Today, the average American woman owns 30 outfits. Those costs add up, especially when the clothes are trendy or poorly made, requiring frequent replacement. Don’t assume that expensive equals quality, either; higher-end brands may still use synthetic fabrics or have poor quality stitching, which can cause the pieces to wear out more quickly. Investing in a few well-made basics over a longer period of time allows you to obtain pieces that will last for years — without spending a lot of money all at once. Opting for versatile essentials, rather than special statement pieces, will allow you to mix and match with pieces that already exist in your wardrobe and increase the longevity of your clothing in general. Neutrals may sound boring, but they can still provide a pop of color or a subtle pattern. It allows you to be even more creative with the way you put outfits together to dress for the job.

These tips will help you buy fewer pieces overall, but what about finding quality items at lower prices? You may have Bloomingdale’s and Neiman Marcus tastes, but you might want to steer clear if you’re trying to save. Opt for outlet stores or discount shops, second-hand stores, eBay, ThredUp, and Poshmark to score some deals on clothes without paying full price. You can also sell some of your clothes on these platforms to make room in your closet and give yourself a little extra spending money. And if you’re shopping online, never check out without finding a promo code first. Refrain from impulse shopping as well, since this can quickly derail your budget. If you set aside a specific amount to spend on clothes each month, you’ll have a harder time justifying that sudden splurge — especially if you give yourself time to really consider which pieces you need to dress for the job, and which you can live without.

Sticking to a strict workwear budget isn’t always easy. It often comes down to taking your time and doing the proper research. As long as you don’t rush into any purchases, have a clear idea of what you can really spend, and weigh your options carefully, you can add some amazing pieces into your wardrobe that will last for a long time — and without spending an arm and a leg.
