Art Show

 My sister Dubem and her friend Sabrina had their first art show this Saturday and I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out! The show was set up in two rooms with two themes: The Heart of the City & Ties That Bind.
The beautiful artists in front of their collaboration pieces entitled The City & The Heart. Can you guess which one is The Heart?
Four of my favorite pieces made by my sister. She's an architecture student if you couldn't tell.

Turban I

This is a really simple style I learned off of a random YouTube Channel (when I get the name I'll let you know). All you need is a half yard of stretchy rayon fabric, which you can get at any fabric store for really cheap. Fold the fabric in half- long ways- and lay the middle of the fabric on the back of your head so you can tie a knot in the front. You can tie one or two knots depending on you big you want it to be. After you tie the knots, take the loose ends and tuck them into the folds. Wa-la! You have your turban.

Try not to focus on my brows...they've been undergoing a growing out process. On my way to get them threaded now!

Hype Means Nothing

Instagram is where I usually discover brands or designers that I find interesting. People don't usually like to put where they got what they're wearing (in fear that someone will take advantage of their best kept secrets perhaps?) but I always find a way ;).

I was on my fellow fashion bloggers' Instagram (Song of Style) when I stumbled upon her sister's Instagram (@SongDani). She was wearing one of the Hype Means Nothing shirts I have pictured above. I absolutely LOVE this french brand, and have known about them for a while but never took the time to delve any further than looking at a couple pictures. 

My taste overtime has changed, however, and being that I've been looking for some beyond ordinary t-shirts to add to my collection, this is reappearing in perfect time. 

I can't go to France right at this moment, but lucky for all of us they ship to the US! Find them online here .  I'll definitely be grabbing mine.
