NEVER OVER DRESSED

DSC_0953

Hey beautiful people

It’s yet another beautiful day and 9 days to christmass but really who is counting? I am still up and down every week traveling here and there and frankly my body is tired at this point yet I have more traveling to do. Blame that on the festive season and all events set around this time.

This outfit reminds me a lot of my campus days when I was care free and too experimental when it comes to my style. It’s about wearing what you want and obeying no rules whatsoever. You just make a decision and run with it. It’s called having fun with fashion and that,I did and so should you. I cut off my mesh panty hose into these knee length ‘socks’ to compliment the look.Everything I’m wearing is thrifted. Enjoy the rest of the pictures

Hey darlings

So,how is December for you so far? I am loving it since I already went on leave and I have so much time in my hands. I have been shopping,sleeping and watching movies most of the time. Just finished scandal season four episode 8,started on one called stalker,watched a movie called reclaim,tried a reality show called married to medicine and didn’t finish,the only reality show I really like is real housewives of atlanta.I have no idea at what point I will  finish watching everything but I’m not in a hurry. You can recommend any action/drama/political thriller series. No vampire and super natural stories please(though the movie Lucy was awesome)

BEFORE MEETS AFTER: MAKE UP

DSC_0994

BEFORE will surely meet the AFTER

Hey guys,Sometime back my Salonist moved to a new salon and asked me to go check it out so I can move with her. It takes forever to find someone whom you are comfortable with to handle your hair. In most cases even if they change salons, I always tend to move with them unless of course the new place is far or I am not feeling the ambiance. You can imagine my pleasant surprise when I saw Pauline cosmetics products on the shelves as I walked into the new Salon. I love the brand personally and was looking forward to replace my red wine lipstick so clearly that was a sign from God.

RED TOP AND JEANS

DSC_0909

Hey guys

Here is an outfit I wore sometime back. The thing that y’all don’t know is that there is hard work that goes on behind the scenes as you try and get the perfect shots. Most of the time I am upto the challenge and so is my photographer. We check the shots after every few minutes just to ensure we are on the same page. However one of the elements that can mess you up is the weather! It was sunny that evening and we hooked up to shoot my Outfit of the day then suddenly it became gloomy and the lighting and all just changed. We had to work quickly with what we had and I may not 100% love how they turned out,but I’m glad I have something to share with you. The struggles of a fashion blogger continues….

IT’S THE LITTLE THINGS

DSC_9725

Hey you Darlings

It’s December!!!!!!!! Favorite time of the year,not just because christmass is involved but my birthday is going to be on Thursday as well. I used to love the fact that I share my birth date with Jayz and Tyra banks and secretly wished that I can have even half the success and MONEY of course that they have. Still do. Who wouldn’t though? So dear lord,bless the work of my hands. A little envy is good sometimes right?

About my vest, I have always wanted a print out of the funshion word on clothing and decided to do it instead of always thinking about it. I found it to be pretty cool and hope you do too. I wore this outfit a couple of weeks back and paired it with my short shorts. To cover up a little,I wore this vintage kimono I got from my best friend’s mum during one of our trips down to their shagz..Wearing something that’s several years old and still looks fabulous is just a double win on my part. Love it! Oh,before I forget, I want to give a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY shout out to my good friend Kare Karihe. Have fun baby girl

FLIRTY IN BLUE

DSC_9812

Hey guys,

I think I’m starting to have some holiday anxiety. I keep planning everything in my head and wonder at the same time what if it doesn’t work out and It just sucks? What is happening right now? because lemme tell you, I’m that type of person who allows things to work out naturally around this time.I have no idea where this excitement is coming from.Anyway,I can’t wait to kick start my December with my birthday next week. I’m getting old people. Sigh!

About the outfit, nothing is new here really. That’s the beauty of it all,creating an all new outfit by virtue of different styling.I first wore this top with the matching bottom  and the blue skirt during the bloggers challenge last month. As you can notice,this pair of velvet heels are among my favorites. They have had their fair share of 15 minutes of fame up in here. Make that an hour or something to be honest :)  Do tell me what you think about this outfit and if you like it,don’t forget to share the post to your friends. You know what they say, sharing is caring

WHITE TUXEDO BLAZER

DSC_9849

Hey beautiful people

This was the look I went for the bloggers challenge this month which was based on faux leather or faux leather details. Which reminds me, I have an amazing leather skirt from Achie Otigo that I have never worn laying somewhere in my Nairobi closet. Obviously I will wear it soon enough now that I remember!! Ha.

I paired the pants with a neon green tank top which looks yellow here for some lighting reason and draped my tuxedo blazer over it.One interesting fact actually is that when I got the blazer,the lapel was silk white. I took it to my tailor who replaced it with a black one and voila! Trust me, a good tailor is always a good investment to have.Glad I have discovered a new one over here. Double wink, double win! Enjoy the rest of the pictures and have a beautiful day my loves
