Click of the week

This weeks click of the week is jewelry by Nicole Khristine.  I picked it because of their Tribal collection; which uses a few Adinkra symbols and donates 15% of the profits from the collection to Village Volunteers, a non-profit group with three orphanages in Kpando in the Volta region, Ghana.

The homes care for children that are Malnurished, HIV+ or simply have no aldult to care for them.

Ituen Basi!

I'm back!  It's been far too long, please forgive me but there has been lots to do and tons to get through but fear not I was never far.

Today my wonderful new find is Ituen Basi, I was struck by her Spring/Summer '09 collection aptly coined 'Ankara and Beads'.  I LOVE African fashion, don't you?

If you haven't already done so you can check out the feature on her in the March '09 issue of Genevieve magazine.
