I am so thrilled to introduce one of my new favorite up and coming designs by Onyii & Company. The creative genius, designer, and founder behind these colorful African-inspired designs, Onyii Brown, is inspired by faithful and strong women who contribute to building a vibrant community of people empowering disenfranchised women globally.  Onyii & Company's designs are innovative and versatile, allowing a woman to reflect her heart and soul through fashion. While there is much to appreciate about all forms of art, I always felt fashion was special because it is the only art form one can wear. Fashion lives and moves with each unique individual, telling a story reflective through yarns, fabric, patterns, and colors. As you all know, I am a big fan of a ladies' full skirt, and Onyii & Co.'s skirts and dresses are perfect for twirling and moving through my day!

Sometimes bold, sometimes subtle, this collection has skirts, dresses, accessories and more. Since this skirt makes such a bold statement through colors, patterns, and a full silhouette, I decided to use as my statement piece by pairing with a simple white crop top. I chose a pop of color on a classic silhouette pump and chain strap clutch to tie the whole look together. When styling busy patterns and prints, it is always a good idea to keep the rest of your pieces simple. Below are a few more of my favorite prints. Be sure to visit Onyii & Company to browse the latest collection and follow on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!
