Street Style South Africa

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

One thing about street style is that its a unique expression of ones style and individuality and this amazing Street Style Blogger from South Africa captures just that!He is Anthony Bila."a young man who has a great eye for style (on himself and on other people) and he also knows some stylish people. As the name of his blog suggests, Bila is interested in people whose style expresses their personalities, rather than those who are like walking catalogues. On the Expressionist, Bila also posts pictures of his artworks. It's simple, with minimal wording and maximum style".-Sunday Times.I think of him as Africa's Tommy Ton as he captures unique fashion moments in the streets.

Bright Versus Neutral Colours
When you not so sure about the bright colours you can always pair the bright coloured skinny's with neutral colours.

Strictly Men's Affair! 3

Thursday, December 6, 2012

So I recently started this segment on men's style some time back but i failed to keep up with it,for some reason blogging about men's fashion can be abit of a challenge for a female fashion blogger but all the same am gonna give it a try I hope i can Keep up.When it comes to fashion especially for men i think a guy should find a style that suits him or rather compliment him.You just don't wear skinny pants because you saw Chris Brown rocking them and you thought you would look the same...no it doesnt work that way.I would advice a guy to try out different looks until he finds one that suits his body,personality so that when you out there you actually look fabulous.So get to know what style suits you and then go all out on it by that i mean maximize on it.
So here are different looks you can try out!

Michelle Obama Lady of Style!

Wednesday, November 7, 2012

Am proud of the Americans for voting for a wise leader!So i was super excited that Barrack Obama won this morning and was soo loking forward to his speech,and i loved each and every thing about it but what really caught me is when he was thanking his Family and i quote........."And I wouldn’t be the man I am today without the woman who agreed to marry me 20 years ago. Let me say this publicly: Michelle, I have never loved you more. I have never been prouder to watch the rest of America fall in love with you, too, as our nation’s first lady. Sasha and Malia, before our very eyes you’re growing up to become two strong, smart beautiful young women, just like your mom. And I’m so proud of you guys. But I will say that for now one dog’s probably enough"
And i started thinking of how Michelle Obama has really been a supportive wife to her husband and am amazed of her fashion sense that is  for sure. She truly is a fashion icon for the modern women.Here are pics of her i came across n i so like!



Simple yet elegant and stylish,more reasons why her husbands adores her so much!Personally i believe if your smart on the outside you definately smart on the inside and in fashion you really dont have to try so hard to stand out,it should be effortless.

I leave with one more part of Barrack's speech that inspired me..

"I have always believed that hope is that stubborn thing inside us that insists, despite all the evidence to the contrary, that something better awaits us so long as we have the courage to keep reaching, to keep working, to keep fighting."---Obama!

Have an inspired week Lovelies!

When i first started blogging,i instantly fell in love with African Fashion.I loved the vibrant fabrics from different parts of Africa to be honest i adore fabrics from West Africa and someday when i get a chance to go there i will carry a whole lot of them in my bag..lol..so with time i got so into it so much that at some point i thought i could start designing my own outfits from African Fabric,make them look modern,chic and stylish.so slowly i have been doing so but the road has been abit rough but am getting a hung of it.So watch this space for amazing designs from yours truly :-).
To all of you who keep constantly checking out my blog,am so greatful for the support,words cant express how much i feel delighted everytime i see i have readers from different parts of the world.

For the Love of Kitenge @ Kitenge Festival!

I must admit i have really missed my blog!Its been a month now since i had blog post,sorry for being MIA but am back now :)
I attended the much hyped Kitenge Festival over the weekend and i must say i was impressed by the way people came in large numbers to the event and the stuff being showcased from clothes to accessories was utterly amazing!The only thing i missed out and was really looking forward to was the runway session but oh well atleast i managed to see the beautiful outfits Kenyan Designers showcased.I was more into how people dressed up for the event and one word FABULOUS!most people came to the event looking there very best.

Outfit Post:Floral Jumpsuit

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

Hey Lovely people!

Am really trying to keep up with my outfit posts,am so proud of myself.Hope y'all fine.You know i always thought taking photos for the blog would be so easy....well its not as easy as i thought,before i get the right pic i go through a lot of posing and after that editing begins....and it ain't easy at all and there is nothing as disappointing when you have taken pics and when editing you cant seem to find the right pics to use on the blog,it happened to me once but all in all its a learning process and am really getting a hang of it.So behind the smiles just know i went through a lot of poses.


I will be launching the African accessories i had earlier talked about on my previous post.Most of the pics  will be on my FaceBook Page ,dont forget to check them out.The bangles i wore here are part of the collection.


If you like get in touch with me through my facebook page and i will respond to you as soon as possible.

Hi Lovelies,

Hope y'all had a lovely weekend.Mine so far so good.Yesterday i attended a party at my mum's place,its been very cold in Nairobi especially on Friday and Saturday.I totally had fun at the party.I  first had to go to work, i usually work half day on Saturdays,then in the afternoon i had to go see a client who was interested in an outfit from my collection Vonette Boutique  later in the afternoon i  went to mum's place.Here are the pics


I may not be able to frequently post outfit posts through out the week as i usually work from 8am to 5pm and getting time to take pics at the office can be kinda tricky,thats why my outfit posts are not so frequent.I will be doing outfit posts mostly over the weekends atleast then i have time to do so.

The African Fabric bangles and earrings i have worn are my latest projects :-),by this i mean i actually made them,i will be launching my line of Earrings and Bangles made of African Fabric and they will be for sale on my blog as from next week on Tuesday,i have made a variety of them,no worries more info will be available on Tuesday.


A summary of the whole outfit:


The trench coat---thrift shop

Tights---------Jamia Mall
White Peep toes---Mutindwa Market
Bangles&Earings-----Vonette accessories

Have a lovely week y'all and thanks for passing by.

Janelle Monae the new face of Cover Girl!!!

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

That's right she is the new cover girl celebrity face!She joins the current brand ambassadors Taylor swift,Queen Latifah,Drew Barrymore among others.What really amazes me about her being chosen as the brand ambassador for cover girl is the simplicity in her style...this is what she has to say about her monochromatic wardrobe in the Sept Issue of Vanity Fair! ...... "It's part of having something that's transcendent. You could time travel, you could go all over the world, it won't ever go out of style," she says of her chic black and white. "It's just a part of a 'brand' that I created, even if nobody was watching. I know what I like; if you go to my closet, I have at least four of everything. Once you find what you like, it's like it worked yesterday, it works today, it'll work tomorrow"
 I couldn't agree more with that,style is something that is effortless,makes you stand out from the crowd and as long as you believe in yourself the rest of the world will believe in you.


 

Colour Blocking,tips,facts and tricks

Thursday, August 9, 2012

Currently i have been obsessing over colors especially bright ones.And i came to realize colour blocking is so easy as long as you know which two colors compliment each other... and thank God for the color wheel as it clearly shows how to blend in the colours..


According to the colour wheel,colours that are directly across each other go well together like green and magenta,blue and yellow...e.t.c Also a colour scheme designer does the trick,clearly shows which colours compliment each other.
Here are some basic facts about colour Blocking
  1. accentuating and tying these colours is usually done with shoes and accesories
  2. any solid coloured clothes in bright hues can be mixed and matched to make fantastic colour blocked outfit
  3. play bright colours against each other for bold new  looks
  4. black and white are seen occasionally but can create stunning looks when paired with eye popping colours.
Fashionable people Colour Blocking!




I think colour blocking is one of those trends that are here to stay!Its one of those looks if you get it right u will always make a fashionable statement wherever you go.
