Do you dare

heya!

For my final post I thought I’d show a lot of leg. ok, first off let me start by saying that I know it seems like I’m always showing a lot of something..lol! If there’s something I’m proud of it’s my femininity. I play around with clothes and wear what flatters me. Granted, Kenya is a conservative state, and I have no qualms with it. If anything I think it keeps us in check because lawd knows if we could walk around the streets in whatever we please…some girls would bare it al! I think we should know how to accentuate our curves in a classy not trashy way. All these females garnering fame by wearing the skimpiest of clothes..if at all I can call them that, they forget that how people see you is quite important despite their frantic shouts of it’s my life I can do what I want with it . True, its your life, but its not your world and you certainly do not live alone in it. Sooner or later you will need people to take you seriously. The beauty of youth fades and nudity can only take you so far. But I digress…

this final piece is quite short but can easily be paired with hosiery. I love this playsuit because its very light. Throw on a trench coat over this if the night gets chilly. I’d probably wear this to a nice lounge for drinks. Not really a party girl anymore.

Valentines

Hi guys,

Hope you guys are great. Had a pretty rough week as I experienced my first loss. Thought I’d be alone on valentines (not that it would have been bothered me one bit), turns out I’ll be surrounded by friends and family..love all around. Point of the day really, innit? Promised to do a valentines series and under the circumstances, I think two more posts is more than enough. Counts for a series, yeah?

So for my first post I came up with a sexy dinner ensemble. To be honest I don’t think very many people own any fancy dinner dresses that would be deemed Valentines appropriate…I doubt I’d wear any even if I owned some..I mean I’m more of sexy-casual kinda girl and I think that would be a bit too much for me. Plus it would just sit in my closet after I wear it so cost per wear is totally non-existent.

IMG_7480Paired this high slit skirt with a lace high top. I think the lace is quite seductive on its own and a little bit of leg just vrooms it all up. Wouldn’t wear this on any other day I don’t think! Well maybe on my boo’s birthday..wherever he may be!lol!

IMG_7478Paired them with these sandals that I absolutely love.They’re pretty practical as they’re not so high. Can dance all night in this. Proven fact!

side note*

Decided to cover my hair for a while cause of the hassle. Went and had faux locs installed and I’m not quite sure how I feel about them yet. Oh well…

hi guys!

February is here so I guess 2015 is officially in full swing! Folks are already gearing up for Valentines (I’m not), so I figured why not do a series. The next couple of posts will feature Valentine inspired outfits, from casual to all dolled up. Its a shame I’ll probably be on my couch eating candy and watching a series on that special day. Like I’ve done for the last few years. I mean…I’d like to spend any day with my babe just cuddling and sipping on something, plenty of food and good music, but as luck would have it…it’s still not my year yet! Who says i can’t have my fun though! Went casual for the first look just so i could go crazy with the red. Maybe its just me but i don’t think red on Valentines is cliche’ at all! I quite like it actually! But only if done right.

I think by now everyone knows I like my necklines really low. All you females blessed with cleavage flaunt it all day! let me flaunt my chest! I kid. I just like the look of it to be honest. Wore this red high-waisted pants from StyleAlertSa( you can find her on instagram @stylealert-thuli)paired with this plaid flannel shirt and black sandals. If I gain any weight this pants will be for sale so fast!!!!I made the mistake of ordering a small to challenge myself to lose a pound or two….this was a few months ago…I’m still here..sigh! Lol don’t get me wrong I love my curves…but this pants wont let me shine!

Have a fabulous week guys! Thanks for stopping by!
