My Obssession-Turbans

On April 27th Waris Ahluwalia from House of Waris came to my university to talk about his jewelry company.  His presentation and work was to die for but his style was equally amazing.  He had on a a corduroy like blazer like the one below with a simple dark indigo jeans.  His headpiece was the most prominent aspect of his outfit and made me become so envelope in how to make it work with my daily outfits.
 I haven't mastered it just yet but here are some photos of people pulled it off effortlessly.

My Style Icon: Victoria Beckham

Mrs. Beckham iconic style has been in review all over the internet, magazines, and TV.  The english wife, mother and singer has made her mark in the fashion world.   Not only does she have her own personal style she also gave it to the world as a present with her Victoria Beckham collection. Her pieces are cool, collective, chic, and minimalistic.  

My all time favorite
