Shop til’ you drop! AdaChic Designs’ Latest Collection Has the Perfect Holiday Handbags

The Holiday season is quickly approaching, and with it, AdaChic Designs’ latest collection! Whether you’re looking for holiday presents or additions to your winter wardrobe, AdaChic’s leather handbags are the perfect choice for authentic, sustainable, and socially conscious shopping. The new collection of carefully crafted and beautifully designed handbags featuring colors like coral, olive, burgundy, mustard, and more is set to launch tonight at 5:00 pm!

Each bag is handmade in Africa by local designers with local materials to elevate the African economy through revenue and job creation while uplifting the community of artisans. The company was started by Dr. Nichole Thompson with her cousin Meredith Lilly following Thompson’s trip to Africa with her daughter. The two cousins, being the first-born women in each of their families, decided to honor their Nigerian roots by naming the company “Adachic,” stemming from the Nigerian word “Ada,” meaning “first girl.” Since its inception, the company has made a lasting impact on Africans across the globe.

“We are very excited to announce the release of our latest collection, just in time for the Holiday season! From style and color to shape and feel, our team in Africa is carefully creating each bag to perfection. We hope you enjoy these new handbags as much as we loved designing them,” said Dr. Nichole Thompson, founder, and co-owner of AdaChic Designs.

Each handbag is crafted by African artists, utilizing sustainable leather sourced in Ethiopia. The cousin owners are working to grow a sustainable workforce that amplifies Africa’s talent and natural resources.

The O List’s Fortune & Frame Collection Comes To Alabama

Fortune & Frame is giving Alabama residents a new way to bring together fashion and self-expression, with lockets that open to reveal messages they’ve personalized with a meaningful quote or saying for those who mean the most to them. 

The original idea for her message-holding jewelry came about when founder Gretel Going got a fortune she wanted to hold onto but had nowhere to keep it. What started as a handful of fortune-holding lockets has since taken on a life of its own. Just this month, Oprah described Fortune & Frame’s lockets as holding “Words of Wisdom” in The O List. 

Fortune & Frame’s pieces are now carried by a number of stores across Mobile, Saint Louis, Oxford and others.

Inauguration Day 2021 White House Style: A Whole Movement

The hair, those masks, bold accessories, and tone on tone looks was an entire movement!  Inauguration Day 2021 did not disappoint despite the circumstances. We stood by to witness several firsts. Madam Vice President Kamala Harris became the first African-American and South Asian woman in office, and a member of the first African-American sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.

Everyone showed up to view this monumental event but the tables quickly turned as the Former First Lady Michelle Obama stunned everyone with her gorgeous hair, jumpsuit, and statement belt.

First Lady Jill Biden was a class act wearing a tweed coat, coordinating gloves, and handbag from designer Christopher John Rogers.

Yesterday was a fashionable moment that left a mark on the hearts of those across America!

Boutique Mexico totes and pouches are a breeze to carry and come in many different styles:

  • Tote the toughest, little Mia Beach Tote you’ll own that is made from recycled plastic by artisans in Guadalajara. Almost indestructible, waterproof and good looking, the color combinations are rich and unexpected. 

  • Carry a distinctly personal statement of style with the Mini Stella Tote. Utterly feminine, it’s an intimate little accessory that adds flair and high color to any outfit.


Boutique Mexico is on a mission to give back to the community by partnering with native artisans in Guerrero, Hidalgo, Puebla, Chiapas, and Oaxaca to help them earn a living and preserve the ancient crafts of weaving and embroidery that have been the creative expression of their communities for generations.

Boutique Mexico is now officially sold in selected Anthropology stores.  Purchases can be made directly online at Boutique Mexico.

South Moon Under Spring Fashion and Accessories

There’s something about the photos (below) that made me excited about dressing for warmer weather!  It’s time to transition out of faux fur and into those maxi dresses!  I like South Moon Under because their brand truly epitomizes my individual style.  Their clothing’s on trend, laid back, but most importantly, it’s well-made.


Yes, the prices are a bit different from other retailers but I am the type of girl who will wear a maxi dress several times before donating.  My favorite dress should not start ripping at the seams or (even worse) the zipper breaking.  The store also has “cool kids” accessories such as Kate Spade Sunglasses, Flash Tattoos, Beauty Blender Sponge, and Spanx Panties.


I like to wear fedora hats, jumpsuits, hoop earrings, and denim skirts.  Dressing for me is about what I want to communicate during that particular time.  My body frame is petite (short girl) and due to this you will rarely see me wear flared pants or dolman sleeve tops.  Having great style is about wearing what makes you feel comfortable and understanding what works for your figure type.
