I was never really into the dungarees aka overalls trend. Sure it looks good on some fashionistas but my infatuation for dungarees died in the 90’s along with my childhood. I’ve always felt that

I  bet you’ve heard the saying, you are what you eat but probably not, “you are what you wear”. Well, it’s true, you are what you wear. There’s a reason why people say “you need to dress the part”. If you’re interviewing for a role as an exec at a corporate you wouldn’t wear jeans and a t-shirt would you? If you do, then you’re probably not serious about getting the job or at least that’s what the interviewer will think. Tom Ford said,  “dressing well is a form of good

Every working woman needs a jacket or 20 in her wardrobe. It is and should be a staple in any professional woman’s wardrobe. Why? A jacket is very versatile. It can be dressed up or down. Whether you’re going for a casual, formal or in-between look, a jacket can achieve all three. What makes it even more awesome is that it can be worn all year round. Autumn, Winter, Spring or Summer, jackets are always and will always be on trend. Difference between Jacket and Blazer What’s the difference between a jacket

I believe it was Coco Chanel who said: “Old clothes are old friends”.  I can completely relate to this because just as old clothes are old friends, new clothes are new friends. My dad tells me all the time that I have too many clothes. I, on the other hand, don’t think I have enough. What woman does?! Each item of clothing in my wardrobe has a special meaning to me. They hold special memories like the dress I wore on my first date with an ex, the shirt and

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.

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

I attended my first ever silent disco by House of Oni last week and it was quite the experience. I like trying new things and meeting new people so when a friend suggested that we go to a silent disco on a Friday night, I only had two questions; where and when? What is a silent disco?
