Fashion

What is style? Style is not fashion, it does not buy into trends.  Style is an extension of yourself; knowing who you are and dressing to complement your body shape and personality. Style comes naturally to some while others have to learn it.  I’d like to think that my style has evolved over the years. Gone are the days when I would go OTT (Over The Top) and match my accessories with my outfit. For instance, if I carried a pink purse, then my earring, shoes and watch also had to

Ha!  Did my title catch your attention? I thought it would. I may be stressed but I’m not depressed. I stay well-dressed though, that’s nothing new. 😉 I know I’ve been absent on here for a whole month and for that I am sorry.  I  sometimes get into that space where I feel overwhelmed and stressed out because I have lots to do and don’t know where to start. I have since learnt that you start by starting. I even posted an image of this exact saying on my Instagram

To be fashion-forward is to be interested in fashion and wearing things that will soon become very fashionable. A fashion-forward person is not afraid to take risks and set trends. Sometimes it can be a miss and other times it can be a hit. At the core of my being is a fashion designer. I can’t draw/sketch to save my life but I can think of creative clothing styles (in my head) that are simple and ready-to-wear. I’m really good when it comes to altering existing clothing designs. Take this boyfriend jeans

Hello, Spring! It’s September which means it’s spring which also means it is my birthday month – ring the alarm! As we all know, the beginning of a new season is the perfect excuse to get a wardrobe update. And this season, florals, bright colours, frills, and ruffles is what’s trending. Tís the season to be a woman! Without further ado,  I’ve compiled a list of 7 dresses to wear this season that’ll help you stay on trend. Whether you love colour, maxi dresses, the off-shoulder look or you just

Ah, trends! Whether you love it or hate it, you can’t deny its existence. If you know anything about fashion and trends,  it is that it’s always recycled. You will also most likely know that trends come and go – bell bottoms today, skinny jeans tomorrow. The average life cycle of a trend is three to four months, it changes with the season. I’ve always been averse to trends because it encourages a fashion slave mentality. A fashion slave mentality is a breeding ground for capitalism. You just keep acquiring and

Hair has always been a ‘thing’ for me. Just like a great outfit, a good hairdo can help to bolster your confidence. When your hair looks good, you feel good and when it doesn’t, you don’t. Sometime last year, I decided to start wearing wigs instead of weaves. I noticed that relaxing my hair and the strain on my hair from weaves was damaging. Uneven hair, receding hairline and weak ends were just some of my struggles. But since I started wearing wigs, my life has changed for the better.

Those who know me well know that I’m a feminist. I’m not a radical feminist, my views on feminism are liberal – what I stand for is equality and justice for all. I guess that in theory makes me both feminist and egalitarian. As a woman, I believe that we are capable of doing what a man can do and should therefore not be discriminated against because of gender. Society teaches us that certain jobs are for women while others are for men. But society is wrong. And we must

I may be resistant to trends because they are impractical and detrimental to one’s finances but there are some trends I am obsessed with and that make sense. The deconstructed shirt is one such trend. I have been wanting to try it out since I discovered it. I love shirts and actually wish I had more shirts in my wardrobe. Aside from dresses, shirts are my go-to on days I don’t want to think too much about what I’m going to wear. Shirts can be styled in three different ways;

As I grow older and no doubt wiser, I find that I give a lot more thought to how I dress and how I’m perceived by the way that I dress. This is something that didn’t bother me so much until my late twenties and more so now that I’m 30. When your friends are getting married and having babies, you know your days of dressing sexy are over or are they? What does it mean to dress your age? Are there certain items of clothing you can’t wear once

Ah, autumn is here, and soon it will be winter. It’s darker, it’s colder, the leaves are a beautiful mix of gold and rust and it’s the perfect time for a wardrobe update. This is my favourite time of the year style wise. You don’t have to try very hard to look uber stylish during the colder seasons, just throw on a jacket, maybe even a scarf and boots and you look elegant. And of course, Superbalist has delivered the ultimate Autumn/Winter jacket collection for the season by style queens
