GIFT : : MAXI DRESS

Happy Friday! I hope you have had a great week. This dress is a gift from a friend I met some time last year. It is amazing how some people come into your life and make a big difference. And I love the stripes of blue and brown dye on it, it means that I can pair it with a number of colors.

I look forward to wearing it in the summer without layering. Thanks dear friend Amani for this maxi dress.

Today my Mother is graduating with a Masters Degree in Educational Management, the party is tomorrow and that means a jammed weekend for me.

Have a great weekend folks.

PLAID + HIGH WAIST

Happy Wednesday! I am slowly recovering and finally settling in my new business premise. The move has been draining but I am glad I have not lost my will to look good and smart for the day. Dressing up lifts the spirit, it is a therapy that works. And the rains are subsidizing but unfortunately we are again headed for the winter season here, it never snows but it gets very cold.

ARSENAL

Happy Monday! I had quite a busy weekend, I was moving my stationery shop to a bigger premise. It has been a long week of renovations. It takes quite a lot of time and money to restyle a premise to what you want.
I wore this workable outfit for ease in moving and lifting items around. I am happy that I have finally settled in my new premise of work, this can only spell more growth.

SHEER DRESS : : VISIBLE SLIP ON

Happy Friday! I bought this dress and I was uncomfortable with the hem line, it is quite high up. So what's a girl to do? I have seen Sheila wear her slip on and leaving them visible. I did exactly that for this dress, yes the silk you are seeing at the front is not part of the dress but a very visible slip on.

I added a cropped denim vest to toughen the look a bit. How do you deal with short hem lines?

BASICS : : BLACK + WHITE

Happy Wednesday! I hope you are having a good week so far. I find a black and white combo an easy outfit to style. The rains are still here and this white top was under a jacket for a better part of the day. I look forward to wearing it in the summer.

MONOCHROME : : CORAL PINK

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. Well, another new item in my closet. I loved the color of this top and the beading details on the neckline. I decided to try a monochrome look by pairing it with this denim and I am more than impressed by the end result. I also love that it is a wash and wear outfit, another versatile piece.

SLOUCHY::STRUCTURED SWEATER

Happy Friday!I have been looking for such kind of a structured sweater and I just find it lying on a rack at the thrift market. Let me rub it in, at half a dollar, of course I quickly snapped it! I take black and grey to be neutral colors and I therefore look forward to pairing it with other brighter colors.

SWEATER DRESS :: DAD'S FAVOURITE

Happy Wednesday! I highly scored with this dress at the thrift market. I bought it at less than half a dollar, yea, it is true. And it is as good as new. Dad saw it and he just fell in love with it, he is mostly my photographer.
I must say I like the fit and it is light enough which means that it can find its way into summer weather too. And these patterned stockings just speak my name :), snake print?

MINT + BURGANDRY

Happy Monday! I hope you had a restful and great weekend. This is a tailored thrifted dress, no labels or anything. I love the subtle box patterns on the material. It was fairly cold this morning and therefore I added this burgandry crop blazer to keep warm. The dress is sleeveless and therefore will definitely be in heavy rotation during summer.

HIGH LOW DRESS + MAGENTA SWEATER

Happy Friday! Finally the weekend is here, I look forward to a much deserved rest. This dress and sweater are new pieces to my closet. I have been looking for a button down sweater and I am glad I found this and it is a Marks & Spencer, a big score for a thrift purchase. It looks barely worn.

The high low dress is actually a sun dress and I look forward to the next summer season to wear it without any layering.What I like about it is that I can wear it in all seasons, another versatile piece.

DENIM + SEQUINS

Happy Wednesday! I have been working for a strait 10 days now, of course an 8-6 shift. I am already feeling the fatigue and I can't wait for the weekend to be here. As I look forward to it, I decided to add some glitter and shimmer with this sequined top. It is another new addition to my closet. I am yet to get how to best deal with the back, leave the ends hanging or tie them.
