Nice to see you here , welcome to my blog, My very first ever write up on this blog. Yay!! I am so so excited to be actually doing this. For real, wow!! I am so beside my self with excitement right now. I have always wanted to do this. To be honest there are quite a few things that I really would have loved doing more but haven’t been able to. This is one of them and I am glad I finally have the opportunity to actually start this. Well, I love to write and I love fashion.So I just thought to my self why not put it together and so here I am. I do not really know where to start, what to expect but I know I am not going to be boring at all, and I won’t take this for granted. It might take me a while to fit this into my some what busy life but hey!! there is always a way.
So, I am a lover of fashion, Oops! Have I said that before? Well,ehm, growing up I remember I used to Pick up excess fabrics my mum had cut out when seeing to tie round my head and waist. I used to do a little fashion parade for my mum to watch, (my mum did a little bit of sewing sometimes) just as a hobby) I remember playing dress ups with my sisters,of course I was dressing them up and spinning them round in front of the mirror. Thinking out loudly to myself, “this doesn’t go with this, ah ha! This and that goes great together, put this on let’s see” I used to feel so proud of my self. A few times my dad had put together what he would be wearing to an occasion and asked my opinion on it, if it suited the occasion, if the colours went well together or what I thought about the whole assemble. I was much much younger then though, then I would express my thoughts on the outfit and explain why I didn’t like the ones I didn’t like. A few times I did change the entire look, sometimes I didn’t. It was so much fun doing that, and my dad would tell me how much compliments he got on my styled look. It was easy with my dad but it wasn’t that easy styling my mum who would never accept the outfits I chose for her. she would refuse to see reasons why I chose the ones I chose for her to wear unlike my dad. She would blatantly refuse to tie the big scarves that was and still is every woman’s wardrobe staple in the part of Africa where I am from. Well, I wouldn’t blame her, back in the day it was trendy to tie it so big that if anyone by chance sat behind you, he or she would miss out on all the action happening at the front. My mum was the type that just loved to go unnoticed in any occasion. Funny enough, that never worked out well for her as my dad is the exact opposite. He is a people’s person and is as stylish that you can’t help but notice him.
I have loved fashion for as long as I can remember and that has driven me to start this blog. To be a medium to express my self, my style and my technique or guideline in putting simple easy and yet chic outfits together.
Beign fashionable does not have to be expensive, boring or without character, you can look fashionable in anything and everything, on a tiny, slim and meagre budget. This can be achieved by putting together trendy and not so trendy pieces, designer and high street brands or even vintage/antique pieces to creat the perfect look for every occasion or an everyday look. knowing how to piece them together is very much important.
