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.

Things to do in Havana, Cuba

HELLO EVERYONE! Yes, I am screaming at the top of my lungs, as I haven't been in this space this year. First things first, how are you all coping with the pandemic? I hope you and your family are safe. It is a tough time for everyone, and I am hoping this passes away sooner than later.
Now on to today's post. Guys, last August I made it to my dream city, Havana! Cuba was a country that had rated high on my travel list for ages, but due to travel restrictions imposed on U.S. residents, I thought a visit there was impossible. This cannot be further from the truth, and I will explain the travel process in another blog post. 
My time in Cuba was spent in 4 different cities, and I will be starting my Cuba travel series with Havana.Enjoy
1. Ride in a classic car --this is a must do The classic car rides are a fun way to see the city. We opted for a 2 hour ride, and we got to see China Town, Havana Vedado, Revolutionary Square, and John Lennon Park.

2. Visit Plaza de la Revolución Revoluti…

Confetti Fun

Hey chica, it's that time of the year again--my yearly birthday photoshoot! Whoop whoop!
In 2016, I did the Rose, Tulle, and Leather shoot, while 2015 was Colors and Balloons. The 2017 shoot was themed Ethreally mint, and last year was Wintery Black. This year I had an elaborate theme in mind, but due to time constraints, I wasn't able to pull it off. I ended up settling for something really simple and fun. And what's more fun than playing in colorful confetti.
Enjoy the photos.

That's all folks! What do you think of this year's birthday shoot?


Living Colorfully in Old Town Alexandria

Hey guys, happy humpday! Just two more days, and the weekend is here--whoop! Speaking about weekends, this past Saturday was a fun one! My cousin was visiting from Lagos, so we decided to take a train ride to Old Town, Alexandria in Virginia. 
The day started with brunch, and ended with super fun vibrant colors we encountered all around Old Town Alexandria. I usually do not publish videos here, but we also took many cool videos and I couldn't resist not posting it here.
Enjoy... I have been to this restaurant several times, so once I got in, I found my way to this wall that I love so muc In addition to American dishes, Warehouse offers Cajun & Creole dishes. I love NOLA style food, so of course I had gumbo and beignets--it was yum! Now unto the streets Color makes me happy I have several photos in front of this vibrant Torpedo Art Factory wall Random More Randoms
