I really love fashion you should hear me talk about it i get so excited, my eyes lit up and i can go on for hours discussing the structure, cut, fluidity, intricate beading or embroidery of a particular garment it gives me such a rush.
I remember when i was in secondary school how i always use to sketch at the back of my notes that even upto today my friends still remind me of those days. I have the passion what i need now is more knowledge and experience which is something I’m planning for in the near future but for now i learn slowly before it comes.
Early this year i got to design a few pieces and this happened to be one of them, this is when i am my most happiest creating a whole look i got a friend of mine beadsbykuby to make some jewellery that compliments the dress because it had silver threads woven into the fabric i thought that shade of beads was spot on. I knew i wanted minimal makeup which my friend mdazzle was able to achieve and the lovely Mimi brought my creation to life.
This was one of my happiest moments this year because i never thought i will be in this position of making my dreams come true gradually it makes me so hopeful for the future.
Actually this was what i wore on sunday when i went to see my friend Aisha, the weather was fabulous and cool that day so i opted for a Polka-dot empire maxi dress that i designed, i usually don’t like any shade of green but i love this emerald colour it has a certain maturity about it that i like. I decided to give it a pop of colour with this really really light bolero. I had a really comfy outing if i might say.
I know fashion week is over but i wrote this post during that period i never got to post it till now.
My first Paris Fashion week post, I don’t know if anyone was as wowed by the new collection as i was. What i couldn’t get over was the details that went into it. Oliver Rousteign is a genius he is one of the few young designers i admire, the work that went into these pieces was no joke, bravo if i might say!!
I am more of a simple structured pieces kind of girl but i salute the time and craftsmanship the makers took to create them makes you appreciate fashion all over again. I noticed some of the pieces reflects kim kardashain style I can see her rocking some of the pieces
You can check out the rest of the collection on http://www.style.com
Oh Dolce & Gabbana!!! You know the way to my heart, this is one of my favourite Italian brand. I can’t quantify how much i love this brand. I am a huge floral print kind of gal and they always deliver.
There is something about the brand with it’s deep rooted love of Italy, it represents it’s culture and family so well that it makes one of dreaming to visit Italy just to experience what they are talking about.
This collection is an evolution of there last one. There was prints, flowers, roses, flowy gowns, crop tops and skirts with Italy embroidery and art work all over them. Hair accessories and fresh make up to give it that youthful exuberant. This is a brand that knows what it’s all about.
Sigh! Where do i start from.. Well let’s go back to 08 February 2013 this was a day before my birthday I saw this tweet and i liked it.
I have always been a big personality kind of girl, when i meet someone the first thing i noticed about them is there personality are they nice, funny, have a sense of humour, easy going and so on.
Face beauty is superficial but at the same time we are human it’s the first thing we notice, i won’t lie I love me some eye candy but at the same time no matter how fine he is when there is no substance one gets bored easily.
Always try and look beyond the outer facade of fellow human beings because it might surprise or shock you.
I am not one to read comments on instagram especially negative ones but once in a while your eyes can’t help but glance at one. I follow alot of fashion instagram accounts, where it’s usually models gracing there pages especially in the present fashion week.
I saw a picture where four models were standing and beneath it someone commented she is just jealous because kendall is younger. It got me thinking why do women get so hung up on the idea of how old one is? Has aging suddenly become a sin that we should fear it.
I have no problem with growing old because it shows progress in ones life why will anyone want to get stuck in that awkward teenage years i don’t get it.
Getting older means i get to marry ,have kids of my own, watch them grow and take their rightful places on this earth if i choose to, it means i get to make a difference in someone’s life because i have the capacity to do so.
It means i get to make friends that i can proudly say i have known them for 50 years now. It means i get to think about all the good, bad and crazy things that has happened in my life because it helped shaped me into the woman i am today which i am mightily proud of.
I once saw a quote somewhere which says Youthis a club we all belonged to at one time which i totally agree. So to all those ladies who feel it’s ok to berated or make there fellow ladies feel bad about aging should remember they are just a shy away from experiencing it because just like death it can not be escaped.
