A Woman on her own: Janelle Monae…

Janelle Monae, I love when some one has a particular style and sticks to it. Some people may think boring… but I think great, she is a musician and has to have a defined style. Women can take a cue from her as she wears the structured look so well with a lot of style and confidence, this is a woman who knows how to personalize her style. See some of her looks that I love.

Handcrafted Handbag…

There is something about a hand crafted piece that feels really personalised and to you it is worth millions even if it cost you a few bucks.
