can be used in decor and fashion which makes it such a unique and great color. Here are some inspirations;

Fall/Winter Fashion Looks

Hello World! Its been AGES! I know i haven’t posted here in awhile and thats because i’ve been so busy with my business and family life! So i thought i should just take some time out and post a few fall fashion looks/ideas for this fall.

It seems like this fall there is a lot of leather and animal prints and i absolutely love animal prints! But also neutral shads like beige work out great too! Who says you have to wear dark colors just because its fall!

My Favourite look! I'll definitely try and recreate this look!

My Debut

Hi folks. So I’ve been debating whether to put up a photo of the lady behind Efyah’s Closet a.k.a moi…. and here I am folks! My name is Christine and Efyah comes from my daughters Ghanaian name. I live in Seattle and I’m just a lady who loves life, fashion and everything in between. First comes God, then my family and everything else falls instep there after. I’ll do my best to post more photos of my outfits here on the blog. I basically live in sweats and PJ’s all day and hardly dress up but will do more outfit posts for ya’ll.

Have a blessed rest of the week!

Chic Work Outfits

I don’t know about you, but Im not a fan of suites. I find them dull and boring. However you can mix up suites and make them fashionable by adding a pop of color to your outfits.

When it comes to work outfits you don’t want to look overdressed or that you are trying too hard. Instead you want to look put together, polished and sophisticated without over doing it.

I believe in having work outfits that are fun and fashionable yet conservative at the same time. Here are some looks that I think are great for work and can be dressed up or down depending on how you are feeling.

Enjoy!

Spring Fashion

So spring is here! Well at least for today it felt like spring was here. It was 69 degrees and for Seattle that is HOT! Anyways back to spring fashion…

Spring seems to be full of floral, monochromatic colors, pastels, and lace as well. I’ve seen a lot of neon, pastel blues and pinks, and a lot of floral apparel. Personally I’m not drawn to floral or neon but for the sake of fashion I may try them. You have to remember that at they end of the style fashion is way of expressing yourself. Trends come and go and what remains is your own personal style and fashion. I’m drawn to classy, timeless designs but I’m not afraid to try out trends once in a while.

Here is a slideshow of a  few spring fashion inspirations I would definitely rock!

African Prints in Fashion

African Prints have evovled from every day fashion wear to high end haute couture clothing. I absolutely love African Prints (also known as Ankara) and not because I’m an African,  but just how fashionable they are. Ankara prints are becoming widely used in fashion these days thus making alot of African fashion designers known globally. From kids to men’s wear, you can never go wrong when it comes to ankara. If you’d like to stand out in your next event/outting,  then I recommend getting an ankara outfit.

Knowing a good supplier of the Ankara fabrics and a good seamstress can be of benefit to getting your own custom made outfit(s). However with online stores like Etsy one can be able to find designers who sell ready made clothes or you can have them create a custom order with different style and fabric choices.

Here are some of my favorite designs and styles inspirations.
