My 15 fashion resolutions for 2015

Get back into shopping the fugg jaay market on Monday morning. Such great treasures!

Play more with bogolan mudcloth as an accent fabric in clothes and for the home.

Get regular hair trims at Mylen’s in Fenêtre Mermoz. (For my hair, a trim is only 8000cfa! Highlights on short hair are 11,000cfa. Can’t beat that!)

Find more wax-print options for boys’ clothes.

Buy a pair of great pumps that are just a bit out of my comfort zone. You know, the kind with an actual heel. 😉

Save on manicures (DIY!). Splurge on pedicures.

Have a wax-print pencil skirt made.

Clean out my closet for the SWAP on January 31st!

Make visiting Mme Anissé for eyebrow threading and sugar waxing more of a priority rather than just hoping to find time to go.

Buy a bogolan handbag from Fatou Jobe. Check!

Avoid the hassle and shop for gifts on WOLOVE Market.

Follow Dr. Bouksani’s recommendation for gentle exfoliating twice a week and a clay masque (love Chouette Mama brand!) once a week. If you need a dermatologist, Dr. Bouksani is great.

Find the women who were selling pagne tissé wallets and clutches at the DWG Bazaar. I love mine! My friends need some now.

Explain the importance of darts to tailors across Dakar.

Interview Soraya on her new line of Moringa-based beauty products.

What are your resolutions?
