Fresh Vibes

February 24, 2016

Fresh vibes is what I’m embodying at the moment, I got braids done recently which I love taking me back to 1999 when wore braids to primary school. Speeding up to February 2016 I am having a braids moment again, embracing fresh vibes, fresh style and good energy!

This past weekend I went to London Fashion Week #LFW, which I haven’t been inspired to go for the past few years, I don’t feel its a must to go unless you have a key purpose to be there. On this occasion my good friend Ngoni debut her collection, which I was super excited to see as she has been working really hard. Her collection is a really cool, sleek, and minimal but sharp collection. Check it out here www.Wearekin.co!

So after checking out her beautiful presentation, I chilled with my girlfriends, cooked some food and then went to a friend’s house in the evening to eat more and be merry lol. I wore the Hana skirt from The Line By K, now turned designer Karla Deras who is of my favourite fashion bloggers! When she released her first collection, I saw the Hana skirt which suited my personal style, i went ahead and bought some of my favs (boo to custom charges though)!

Karla Deras – “I made this for you to be feel sexy and strong at all times” and I do!

Wolford Essentials

December 22, 2015

It is that time of year where we reflect on how our year has been, what went good and what went bad and what our most important learning’s. On a positive note theirs loads of parties and festivities to attend as we reach the New Year!

Styling key Wolford essentials that I also recently wore while on holiday in Miami it also is a great look for any dinner party/festivity event you may be attending, reason why? It is simple, classic and compliments your shape. The Wolford Valencia skirt is a phenomenal skirt because it feels strong but actually is a light material to wear that shapes you from your waistline down for the perfect hourglass shape. It is one of Wolford’s most desirable pieces from their ready-to-wear range. A simple elegant pencil skirt with a wide shape and control waistband that unobtrusively ensures a perfect, feminine figure! Both pieces you can create a variety of looks, with a diverse colour range to choose from.

I paired the skirt with another popular Wolford favourite, the Mat De Luxe Forming String Body. It is seductively shaped to hug around your waist and stomach and sits to snitch in your waist. I love that it makes me feel sexy and comfortable, which is extremely important.

If you like this look, shop both pieces here!

GETTING INTO FALL!

September 14, 2015

I’m so ready for fall… I have already been layering up when i head out in the morning, even though it gets a littler warmer around the peak of the afternoon (but not for long). The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer, which means fall has arrived. I usually never been a fall/winter kind of girl because i like feeling free AKA wearing hardly any clothes lol but in a lady like form.

Of recent, well within the last year as i have continued to build simple stables pieces i am collecting perfect outfits for winter, long cardigans, knee high boots the plain essential tops (that you can tailor to your personal style). All these pieces are clothes that cause effortless thinking when getting dressed but look the flyest (if i do say so myself)

Wearing a few new and old buys that are getting me ready for the cloudy days and darker nights. Keeping it simple with an all black outfit as i have said before dark and neutral colours reign in my wardrobe currently!

VINTAGE CASUAL RIPS

July 28, 2015

Keeping it simple with this post and sharing with you my look that I wore last week Friday on a ‘dress down Friday’, even though I usually wear whatever I like to work.

I bought these vintage Levi jeans a year and half ago and over time the rips are increasing and looking better naturally. I wore this to work and felt cute and got to take some shots before I popped into the office. If you follow me on  Instagram you would of seen I started a new job woop woop! Currently I  now work for one of the worlds leading creative marketing agency, working on some cool brands that I will hopefully get to share with you on here!

Let me know what you think of this casual look, would you wear this on a Friday, from the office into the evening for a night out?

JEREMY SCOTT x ADIDAS

June 30, 2015

A little Sports ‘Glam’ Luxe?

I got this exclusive Adidas and Jeremy Scott collaboration from my BFF, when i saw it on i was like i need this in my life and i got it! Designer Jeremy Scott has always had an eye for vivid contrasts, patterns and creative animated visuals to intertwine into bespoke clothing . Equally this top (which i also like to wear as a dress) is both sporty and girly which is perfect for when I want to add a tomb by twist to my outfit.

This floral sequin tee is still available!! This t-shirt shines with allover clear sequins that show off the pink floral print underneath. Oversize for a chic slouchy fit, this tee comes in jersey with a mirror-effect Trefoil on the chest. I wore this out with Zara jeans and my trusty Stuart Weitzman sandals.
