KENZO EVIL EYE

 


Happy Week-end Eeveryone!
A casual look featuring  Kenzo tee and a distressed jeans. What I like about Kenzo is that the designs speak for themselves and are sought after by fashion lovers from around the globe. Honestly, I haven't met anyone yet who doesn't like Kenzo. And obviously, I am not exception!  The print on this tee is quite of a statement because of the huge evil eye. Even though the concept and significance of evil eye vary widely from one culture to another, we can all agree that sometimes in life, we need to be protected from evil eye, don't we? Pairing the evil eye tee with a distressed jeans for a stroll town. Enjoy your week-end and stay blessed!

A POP OF PINK


 
 
 
Happy Monday!
 The first time I saw this coat, I couldn't believe it was from the high street label as it looked like one of those pieces from Prada. You know the joy when  you buy a piece that costs nothing but looks like it is from a high end label? I'm sure you do! The mesh material and the round disks on the coat definitely make a statement. I've decided to pair it with a top made with a softer, more delicate material. Lace is known to be feminine but I think this look is feminine and strong at the same time. Last but not least, a pop of pink was added to the look with this DVF bag.

BURGUNDY SILK SHIRT+ GOLD LACE

 
 

Hello Everyone!

Sharing what I was wearing today for a quick outing.  Blogging is definitively giving a second life to my wardrobe. I enjoy mixing some oldies but goodies with new pieces. Talking about oldies but goodies, I think  this old Fendi belt that I've found in my closet  compliments very well my look. Do you sometimes shop in your own closet? I know I do!  
 Hope your week is going well and thanks for stopping by!

LACE JEANS

 
 
 


Hello Everyone!

What I love about blogging is that it gives me a reason to dress better than we expats wives are expected or known to dress here. Naturally, I don't always fit in. I have lived and studied in Paris and I have also lived and started my family in Los Angeles. Needless to say both these places have influenced me in so many ways.  These two cities are known to encourage and celebrate diversity in many aspects of life and including diversity of styles. Not to hurt anyone's feeling but it is a good thing when we are not expected to dress like, talk like or look like in order to fit in!

My very first style influence was my mother in my early childhood in Africa. She was one of those people who really believe that dressing well is a form of good manner.  I like the fact  that even though I'm living away in a foreign land, I'm trying to keep a sense of style because it is really part of who I am. I can't live without fashion. I have tried once and failed because I was so miserable. I have lost friends because of my love for fashion, I have been criticized but at the end of the day, I have to stay true to myself.

I like diversity in most aspects of my life, and my style is no exception! As matter of fact, this look is quite different from my previous look.  I've decided to style my lace jeans with a bright pink jacket and a hat. I really like the lace work on the jeans against the bright pink. I would like to think of the bright color of my blazer as mood enhancer. I hope I have enhanced your mood or at least inspire you to do what makes you happy. Also I would love to read your views about your love for fashion and how it has impacted your life!
