Us girls just love dressing up. Don’t get me wrong, slacks and lounging around the house can be relaxing, but nothing beats looking like you should be on the cover of vogue.
The golden globes were a tad disappointing as the ladies didn’t really ‘bring it’ but of course some of them were dressed to the nines. Here are the top picks .
Which ones your favourite?
Reese had on a simple metallic dress but it held her in all the right places
Felicity looked like royalty
Kate's plunging neckline isn't my favourite but am loving the the waist cuts. Something new something fresh.
Anna's dress is divine. Looks like lavender petals blown in the wind
Kerry is the FAVOURITE!!!! Am not sure if its the Egyptian inspired design at the front or the the off the shoulder sexy but classy cut. Only wish it was 1 or 2 inches longer
#AfricanHistoryReEchoed: The University of Timbuktu is the world’s first university. It is was known as a major meeting place for African artists and scholars. Even when Mali was no longer a force to reckon with,the university was still the main learning point for Africa for numerous years.
Fabulous women- May we know them, may we be them, may we raise them
This Kenyan actress shows us the results of hard work- a role in ’12 years a slave’ has her acting with big shots like Chiwetel Ejiofor and Brad Pitt. Did we mention that this happened immediately after graduating from Yale in 2012!!!
Feel good song to remind all Africans that the ‘African way’ is awesome too 🙂
Last weekend I was at my aunt’s store and my eyes landed on a beautiful pair of pleather (fake leather) leggings..they were to live for!!!!! Now Queens keep in mind that I am a curvy size 12, so a couple of trends pass me by simply because I don’t want to look like a stuffed potato :-).
I must have been staring at them like they had a solution to world peace because I heard my auntie say, “Try them on.” Of course I was quick to brush her off but she insisted…so i did. Guess what? THEY WERE A PERFECT FIT!!!!! I rocked them the same evening with a funky neon pink top from HandACulture.
All this got me thinking about this new trend; Its actually kind to most body types. You can use pleather leggings to achieve a number of looks : classy, rock, casual….
just 2 guidelines
1. Get a good fit- too loose or too tight and you’ll look like your’e from another planet
2. If you are on the curvy side, stick to tops that cover your bottom and crotch.
You know me and pictures 🙂 I got a few to inspire us..take a look
Jacket that’s reminiscent of a rocker biker jacket BUT with an African twist 🙂
