My girl and fellow blogger Pearl & Peeptoes blogged about her scarf collection and i was inspired to do the same.I have pashmina scarves in practically all colors and even own different shades of the same color (it is an obsession). Lots of my friends know about my love for bright colored scarves and i often get them as gifts. So,  in any case the friends are reading this,  i need to add  *ahem* coral, grey and acid yellow to my collection ;-).Thank you

Some of my scarves
Orange Scarf:gift from Vietnam. Green:Street Vendor
Red &Yellow: Lagos, Nigeria. Green Multi:Street Mkt in London

Pink Scarf: Gift

Purple:Souvenir from school reunion. Black: TJmax

Mustard Yellow: Rainbow
Orange & Green Multi:Gift from Ethiopia. Purple Multi: H & M






















Aren't pashmina scarves the the perfect accessories for dull winter clothing?

I'm on twitter... follow me here.Thank you

Lace, Satin,Tulle et al

I gazed upon the BCBGMAXAZRIA Holiday 2010 collection and I fell in love. The pieces in this collection are to die for and I particularly liked the Prima Ballerina part of the collection. The collection which fuses lace,sequins,satin,tulle adequately embodies the holiday spirit and If i could,i would get every piece in a heart beat.

Fashion Phoenix

Hey Chicas, It's been a while since i had a guest feature on the blog and i thought today will be the perfect day to rummage through the closet of another fashionista.


Hello y'all,my name is Onyinye FaFi Obi, A fashion junkie,Fashion stylist,Fashion blogger and Fashion editor of 360 nobs .I am quite pleased that Chic Therapy chose me to do this guest feature. My style is more of a polished look with a dab of comfort-ability. I mean,I would pick the comfort-ability of alexa chung's closet to the die-hard discomfort of the corsets in the closet of marie antoniette. Even though I love the glamour of the Victorian era, I thank God I wasn't born at that time.I am also a fashionista that loves a good bargain and I love all things vintage. Recently at an interview, I was asked my fave place to shop and I said,"MY FATHER'S CLOSET" because he stores all clothes he wore in the 80s and thereabout in a special closet.


This shorts are my dad's vintage Levi trousers.I took a scissors to it and turned it into shorts. They are so comfortable.














































i have gone from cropped hair to long weaves and bohi curls,but this hairstyle is my signature. I added a hair accessory by a designer called Aimas.
















This is a typical day in the life of Onyinye FaFi Obi. I tried the trend,"denim on denim" and added a sequin belt,in order to term it,"Parisian chic". LMAO..!!













































I never have a particular look,because my style keeps evolving. Here I wore a ruffled skirt and a "Dunnes" blouse.













































I love this skirt because it makes me look so cute. Also as a stylist, I give this tip.. If you don't have hips,go for a skirt like mine for the illusion of full hips. It makes your look more balanced.


















I love accessories,but I've got an obsession with rings. I can stack more than two on my hand.They are so cute and i cant resist.
















A day on the beach


















This bag is my fave for now.Its vintage and it was a good bargain.
