Hello fashionettes, I hope you are having a lovely week. A wrap dress or skirt is one of those closet staples every gal should own. This classic piece was created by Diane Von Furstenberg in the 60's and ever since its been a revolution in the fashion industry. its ideal for every shape and size and it flaunts what your momma gave ya.
I found this skirt in my shopping escapades and loved it from the word go. It drapes so well and I love the rouching at the front. The color and paisley print was a plus, and the fact that it was midi, yea am totally obscessed.
I paired it with a lace cropped top, played peekaboo with the midriff and showed some leg at the front since the outfit is all covered up. I finished it off with ankle strap sandals to add some glamour and sexiness to the outfit, then carried this bronze clutch I was gifted by my mum.
I kept the accessories minimal and simple because the skirt was loud enough

Hallo fashionistas, who else is obsessed with strappy sandals like I am. Well this time round I decided to wear my denim with sandals to add that elegant look to the outfit since it was super casual. This was my Saturday outfit I wore on a day out bowling with my buddies.I went for a simple denim sleeveless shirt and added distressed jeans on to add the playful edgy look.
I accessorized with a gold butterfly bib necklace, pink studs and a navy chainbag

What do sheers, denim, bows and animal print have in common...you would ask....well, this post is the answer. I got on a lil bit of everything I love. A combination of playful cuteness and edginess defines this outfit and today I will let the pictures tell the story. The chained bow is a DIY....Whats your take....lemmie know what you think below!
The days that fashion overwhelms me and I find myself trying stuff that are out of my comfort zone....but then it would never be fashion wouldn't it?. It was quite a dull cold day so I decided to do a lil' bit of layering with little gothic accents
I L.O.V.E houndstooth print and been on a hunt for a skirt or short for a while and when I got it, I could not wait to style it. I went all retro with the black sweater and tucked it in since its super big. I complemented the look with a plum rich tone and added gold accessories. You never go wrong with red with black and white prints....so I added a crimson belt then finished if off with black leggings.
This shoes are so vavavum....I do not know what to call them but they are a cross breed of platforms with maryjanes. But I sure loved the polka dots.....Oh and they are super comfortable....they are so weird I could't help loving 'em and I thought they really complemented the hounds tooth print.
I kept the rest of my accessories minimal...

Knit sweater- Thrifted
Polka dot platforms- Ericos collection

Have a blessed week,
Hallo fashionettes...been a long minute right? Well my camera decided to die on me so I had to sit it out for a few days till i got a rescue. Anywho I've missed blogging and I pray there will be no more hiatus....so lets get to business....I have been meaning to try out the print on print trend and I got the chance yesterday as it was very sunny and summer-ish
I was on my thrifting escapades when I saw this skirt....this chic was trying it on and oh my....was I wishing she would not buy it. So after a gruesome 30 minutes she finally let it go and trust me I jumped on it so fast the girl was puzzled......c'mon if you love shopping yo know what am talking about. The polka dot is so playful...it was a perfect fit and it was midi....what more could a girl ask for.
I decided to take a fash risk and combine it with this animal print tee....I love its fit and its so ideal for the hot weather without being too sheer....I find it a lil' bit flirty.
Basically...I went just for a simple tee with a skirt....Its amazing how much print can change an outfit. That's why I went for a solid hot pink pump to break the busy outfit and carried a white envelope clutch.
I love playing around with this brooch and this time round I minimised a very bareback tee...I held it together to make some vavavum out of it and make it more comfortable for me to wear it....as I am very conscious about revealing too much skin.

Happy easter dolls! Quite a long weekend it was and i loved everybit of it especially since I had to be with family....and actually had the chance to meet my great aunts, uncles, cousins.....t'was awesome. Since it was such an event, I went for a subtle yet respectable look and hence dorned this Kitenge print tuxedo jacket from my designs.
I paired it up with these knife-pleated pallazo pants and my cropped white button up shirt. I accesorised the shirt with a vintage sun shaped brooch, added no more jewellery since the african is busy.
I finished the look with peach pumps and a matching belt. The sunglasses,, i totally love especially coz of the round structure and cat eyed edges.
The animal print detail on the inside of the shoe is adorbs.
Since I am always on a style prowl with my camera, I had to capture these looks below;
My lil' sister was looking all adorable in this batik bubble dress she designed for herself with black suede platforms.
My gorge cousin killed it with this polka dot blue and white dress, a red bold lip, yellow purse and gold flat peeptoes. She looked like she stepped out of a 70's movie scene.
Finally my baby sister in a grey frock, black tights and gladiator sandals

One of my current obcessions this season is simple t- shirts, I find them very versatile and playful. You can dress them up and down and still be super chic. I decided to do black and white pictures....to give you an illusion of its simplicity without the colors and all.
I paired it up with drop waisted pencil pants, a satchel bag and simple pumps for a day of running errands.
