3 YEAR ANNIVERSARY…IT WAS A BIG DEAL!

So,i’m back from my hiatus.This is my last post this year.

The other day on December 23rd my better half and I celebrated 3 years together and this was it!

Well,HE was looking daper…The tie,shirt,trenchcoat combination i love!..that WATCH? The aviator sunglasses… a guy who knows how to accessorize 🙂

ImageMe in a white dress with random splashes of colour.At first I was skeptical about it but voila! I loved it.And the heels of course.Heels just do something to a girl’s assets and confidence 😀

Image

My true love gave to me:

Image6 inch heels and a wonderful satchel bag! Thank you God, for such men are few,amen…

ImageFor these,black,white,cream or beige is in order.I’m imagining outfits in my head already.

Enjoy your last moments of 2012 everyone.Live it up.

Cheers!

LIGHTS,CAMERA…FASHION!

You know those shows you watch coz you always want to see what the cast is wearing? I feel like that when it comes to some shows.The following are just a few I’ve chosen,but there are many more shows laced with fablousness.I will highlight just a few actors/actresses from the shows.

1.SEX AND THE CITY.

Image

ImageImageImageImage

Carrie Bradshaw,Miranda,Charlotte and Samantha;These girls really heated things up in the world of fashion.It was Shot in New York between 1998 and 2004.If it’s not the high end parties it’s the classy restaurants,long walks in their Jimmy Choos or fabulous vacations!Carrie Bradshaw and her heels?! She was every designer’s dream.I was sad to see them leave but their style is eternal.

2.SINGLE LADIES.

Keisha Greene,April,Raquel,val…This show is just something else.It’s been shooting since last year In Atlanta ,Georgia  and is currently going on.The glitz,the glamour,the parties,the celebreties…the fashion! The girls in this show are never ever ever shabby;not even when they’re going to bed or waking up or going to the gym.Even the stuff in their boutique just spells out ‘FABULOSITY ‘(as Kimora Lee Simmons would put it).These are girls and guys who know what the heck they are doing.Especially Keisha Green.That woman works it! What is not to love?

3.GOSSIP GIRL.

Serena,Blair,Nate,Chuck,Dan,Lily etc.This show’s drama is intense, and the fashion is just as intense :-D,It’s  Shot in New York from 2007 to 2012(It just ended) I mean,these people are all about high fashion..EXPENSIVE high fashion.Those kids are stinking rich.All they wear is designer.I mean,have you seen Blair’s wardrobe? With her shoes she can start a designer shoe shop.Her mum has her own fashion line for pete’s sake!

It’s so hard to choose which of these I like.They’re so different..so rich..They all have great fashion.Sex n the city had some fabulous pioneer fashion for its time.Gorgeous,elegant..it was so darling.Single ladies? I don’t even know where to start.It’s modern and has very chic clothes..stylish,classy,elegant. Gossip Girl has preppy,chic,daring clothing.It is so full of colour. Gossip Girl was also for a younger generation than the rest.So help me decide my good people!

DECEMBER IN THE TROPICS

All it ever is here is hot or cold.No snow! Since I was a kid I’ve always wondered how having snow feels like(like so many kids living in the tropics). Sometimes the sun is scorching.Sometimes it’s soo cold and we’re like dear dear,where did the sun go? This is currently happening here with us.The weather literally shifts every hour.Katy Perry’s song ‘hot and cold’ would suffice here.Well, we don’t like extreme weather but we have to be prepared for it fashionwise,or otherwise.

Well  I’ll tell you this,there are items of clothing that can help get us through thick and thin.If  it’s hot,you can wear them and not feel like you’re standing near a fire.If it’s cold,you can still wear them without cursing at the clouds for lying to you when you left home “ it will be hot today,wear the halter o vest!” .When you’re underdressed or overdressed for the weather it can be so uncomfortable.So when going out when it’s cold and not sure which weather to expect,these are a few suggestions:

I am a firm believer that cardigans is one of them.Not too heavy ,not too light.

I usually rock blazers in hot and cold weather because I know I can withstand them.

Image

Jean jackets are also the ish.They’re stylish too! I’m telling you denim is back ladies and gentlemen.

ImageImage

Ponchos also qualify in my book,

Image

A light jacket.This is so cute..

Image

A long sleeved blouse will also help you cover up in the cold,but also won’t feel too hot in the sun..ooh that shirt..

Image

Leggings and stockings are actually warm.So if you want to keep warm but still wear that nice pencil skirt or that nice short flirty skirt for that date or function and want to keep warm, you can try them!

Image

Rock that maxi when you want to look awesome but still not feel too cold.When the sun comes out,you’re still fine…LIKE A BOSS

Image

You can’t be too careful! Though the weatherman tells you how the weather will be,it usually changes,FACT.Even HE needs to be told these tips!

Awsome Wednesday everybody.

A IS FOR ANKARA..MY POINT OF VIEW.

A sight to behold.Yesterday I was at 1st Impression Designs at The Mall,Westlands getting my ankara on.I just wanted to leave the place with all these fabrics.. too bad I couldn’t 😦

Image

It’s called Ankara and Kente in west Africa,kitenge in East Africa.These are beautiful  native fabrics that have been used since like forever,to make clothing .They’re also used to make accessories and shoes.Ankara just recently gained popularity especially among us young people. Let’s face it..as recently as 2 years ago most of us young folks DID NOT even want to imagine ourselves wearing it.Well..i didn’t.These days,these fabrics are tailored stylishly. In the past they were associated with the older generation.These days I will rock ankara/kente/kitenge fabric gladly.It’s here to stay now and forever.In case you ever buy the fabric,here are some few ideas:

Ankara coats:

I DID SAY,”FRIDAY,IT’S ON”.

The blazer never gets old.Blazers were originally for men ,but guess what? we’re taking over.

So,today went a little something like this:
