On Quinta Brunson’s unstoppable fashion game

March 05, 2023



Who is Quinta Brunson’s stylist? I need to know, and I need to know NOW! When I saw this shot of her tweeted by @MeFeater, it took my breath away. Even my hubs was enamoured. Also, shout out to this work of art by Gaurav Gupta.

As y’all know, I love me some FA-SHON! but what I love even more, is when a celebrity’s style is soo GOOT it arrests my attention long after events have been forgotten.

March 30, 2015


If you know me well, you’ll know that I have a healthy obsession with my writing idol, older sister from another ms and mister, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

Ahem…this weekend my hubs mistook me for her when he saw her pic(ture) on the backcover of her book and suggested I do my hair like hers 🙂

But I digress.

Chimamanda bloody made it into VOGUE UK y’all!
