“Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue, and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true”

I have been trying to take more pictures but it didn't happen because of finals and work.I have been going to school and to work only.My schedule is kinda tight now but I try to manage with my other obligations and time to sleep.
I am not including the time that I blow using facebook.I have so many good pictures that I took In the past, I wanted to post some of them since I don't have time to take new ones now.

These are some of pictures that I took last summer in August.
I like those pants,there are from BCBGMAXAZIA and the heels,I got them online at lulus.com
The handbag is a gift from Alma,a good friend of mine.

I promise to post more pictures soon.

Stay cool.


It is a challenge for a girl to do the big chop when all the girls have relaxed or long natural hair, or wear wigs and weaves.
For a long time, I had very long hair, but last year 2010 in October, I decided to change my look. I wanted something different from other girls. I chose to go bald. It was very scary at first and I didn't know if it was going to look good on me. After cutting it all, everybody liked it.Obviously it looked good.
It felt weird and I was a little bit sad but I liked the result.
I believe that cutting off all your hair represents something from inside.It shows that you can do everything,I mean taking any kind of challenge.That you are independent and you trust yourself enough,you feel confident to even cut off all your hair and still look beautiful.
I wash my hair every time I am taking a shower with Kerastase Nutritive Bain Oleo-Curl shampoo. I dry it with a towel and just comb. I don't apply any oil on my hair because it makes my scalp itchy.
Sometimes I don't even comb it when it is too short. It looks more curly.

Few days ago I wore a wig and I enjoyed the result. It is making me want to grow back my hair or wear wigs or weaves all the time.
What do you think?



A friend of mine does professional photo shoot. I asked her to work with me for a long time but she couldn't make it. One day when I was on my way home from school, she asked me to take some pictures.
It was beautiful outside because it was in the middle of Fall but kind of chilly.
I wasn't sure if the pictures were going to come out great because I wasn't ready for a photo shoot. But at the end they came out good and I liked them.

I like these pictures because they look natural, I didn't have too much make-up on.
I had on my shorts from Wet Seal and a metallic top from Charlotte Russe.
Everybody likes these boots. They are so comfortable and unique.
I love love this jacket.It is a gift from one of my aunties.

Stay cool.


Black skin rocks.

My name is La x sacha, I am from Rwanda, Africa. I am 5'8 and I weight 127 pounds. I have one brother,Nicolas, and both parents.I am a student, a Biology major at La Roche College. I am one of those girls who believe in the power of HIGH HEELS. This is to say that I love fashion with all my heart.
I am a full time student and I work, help old people, full time too.I am a model. I will do anything to go far in modeling. I speak French,English and my mother tongue:" Kinyarwanda".
 About my personality; I have a knack for knowing just how to handle any situation, I am very critical of myself and others.I can be pick at times and I believe that I have strong opinions.
I like helping others, I am very friendly and I have a hard time saying "no" when someone asks me for a favor.
But sometimes this makes me feel that others take me for granted. People like to say that I have a young spirit in a woman body.
I am who I am,I won't change anything on me and I believe that I can achieve anything that I want to achieve.
I smile all the time and hardly get mad.
There is so much that I can say about myself, good and bad. You want to hear something bad about me? I can be careless sometimes and I am good at pretending. I can easly fake my feelings and I don't show my weaknesses. This will make hard for someone to tell if I am mad or in a bad mood.I am very confident about myself and I believe that I can do everything if someone did it before. I like to live in a very clean environment. My friends like to say that I have OCD. Sometimes I believe so.
I believe that three keys to success are:

  • Grades:I work hard in school in order to prepare for my future career.
  • Self-Esteem:I have a friendly personality,I expect the best and I know that I am unique
  • Family,friends,social-I am charming.

About what I wear, I like to wear simple clothes but I pay attention on my appearance. I can't live without high heels,blazers and skinny jeans.
I like to imitate a look that I have seen somewhere and liked.I buy magazines to check what is out in fashion. I cut from magazines all the looks that I like and post them in a big agenda that I hold since 2 years now. In the morning when I wake up, depending on the weather and what kind of mood I am in, I think about what I am going to wear or take a look in my agenda. I take a look in my closet before taking a shower in order to get a clear idea of my outfit.I like high heels as I said before, sunglasses, men watches,parfums and red nail polish. I always apply make-up, I can't go out without at least a lipstick.
I often shop for clothes but I don't buy expensive clothes(sometimes yeah :) ).And I like to mix old and new lookh. I shop online, in the stores and I even window-shop. My favorite outfit in the winter would be booties with heels, leather pants,  warm top and a blazer. In the summer, my favorite outfit would be a strapless long dress, sandals and sunglasses. 
I use make-up every day. My friends make fun of me because I can't go anyway without my foundation and lipstick on. I like Forever products, Mac make-up and Cover Girl lipsticks.

What else can I say about myself? I am a fun girl, I like hanging out, I like interacting with people from everywhere and I like having so many friends. I eat a lot even if I don't know how to cook. I hate doing exercises and going to the gym. I like to enjoy good afro zouk, old french songs and soul music every time I get a day off. I can't study or sleep without music. I don't wear earlings because I am affraid of piercings. I have experience in modeling and fashion since I am 18 years old.I participated in Miss Kigali in 2007 and I was in AUC Peagent 2011 in Pittsburgh. I took modeling class in 2008 with Barbizon school of acting and modeling in Texas. I have signed with DMG Management in Texas and Pittsburgh talents. I work with different designers as a runway model. 
I like romantic movies, I read novels and I write poems.                               I am catholic, I enjoy the mass and I love God.
I am very glad that I finally posted something on my blog. I have never had time and to tell you the truth, I was a little scared to start blogging for no reason. I want to show you how I love fashion, what is my potential and the love that I have inside for everything that I do!


Hello, My name is Chantal. A Rwandan girl now living in Pittsburgh. Welcome to my little fashion world!
Enjoy the journey.
