"If I told you that a flower bloomed in a dark room, would you trust it?"

Kendrick Lamar


This line encapsulates the concept of a good kid in a bad city, and it cuts into one of the most moral questions in human existence: Can good come from evil? The best part about the line, as is true of the best poetry, is that it doesn’t answer the question it asks. For Kendrick’s immediate purposes, he’s the flower and the city is the dark room. The question is: Can you trust him?

Italian/Nigerian design label, Niquara Couture, is fresh on the scene and has created a debut collection of pant suits, evening & Summer dresses, jumpsuits; and playsuits that we are sure you would love to get your hands on.

Very , very pretty! I love the colors and the glam infused with the peplum tops, thigh high slits and interesting shoulders. It does need a little bit of work with the finishing.
