Yellow Mellow

One of the most asked questions is , ”Where do you draw your fashion inspiration from?” Personally my inspiration is drawn mostly from my surroundings as well as the idea of staying true to myself . I am my biggest critic only because I am my biggest fan so I want to see myself grow .

Getting into this week I was inspired by this yellow bag that belonged to my mom (not sure if am going to return it to her ).The brightness just captivated me and I knew what I needed to do (recreation!!! ). I literally forgot to take the before pics of this bag but I will surely do so and update my post .

Designs born out of solitude

Society tends to find solitude unappealing, even threatening but I beg to differ. Personally solitude helps me engage with the inner self and in those moments creativity takes control .

The Befores

 

I have had this shirt for over a year and I should say our relationship is still going strong.The moment I laid my eyes on this shirt at the  Social Market Pretoria I knew we were meant to be .The best news was being told it was only R10 (literally less than USD$1) and I instantly took it with me home .

The After

With the whole ‘New Year new me’ thing I figured why not put that to practice (at-least this is the only resolution am keeping this year ).I have had the most amazing moments with it so this year I have decided to reinvent it and continue our beautiful relationship.

Nothing gives any edgy look a boast than a lil open back ,it kind of gives that element of surprise #bringingsexyback (literally).

Stylist Interview

In between my studies am also trying to establish my career as a model so am always hanging out with models and photographers .So the one time my photographer friend suggested I sign up at the agency that he works for .

Girl Power

I pounded on the idea for weeks considering the fact that am already signed by another agency .Then it hit me, why not join this new agency as their in-house stylist.

Enchanted Beauty

I instantly told him my idea and luckily he was shooting a swimwear portfolio for a newly signed model so I had to create looks for the model .

Black girl magic

I was super stocked and literally spend a whole day creating looks and drafting a vision board for the shoot .The agency is all about empowering the African woman hence I incorporated that but also keeping the looks modern and vibrant .

Twisted Worksuit Girl

I’m all about creating trends cause come on am a non-conformer.So the other day I was chilling with my friend in his workshop when I spotted this baby .With a bit of paint stains I embraced her flaws and turned her into something beautiful.

We belong together

Who determines what should be worn in the streets anyway (I do atleast, for myself). I paired my worksuit with a belt I bought at Factorie ,the store has a bit of  vintage accessories and I always make sure I buy some.

Leg day

With my DYI stockings and all ready to conquer like a real military babe I decided to go out and play .

Geared to slay

I can never overemphasize on the power of accessories and what better combo to pair a military green suit with tan and hues of nude .

Daddy Dearest

‘Dad its time you pass this to the next generation,’ I said as I continued folding his clothes .He had owned this jacket since his days in college and 20 years here I am in college .

Being a cool kid is so effortless I mean there is no going wrong with polarized  sunnies and a bright lippie by Rimmel London.

The art is being able to put the whole look together which means the hair ,makeup and accessories .I really loved this look because I paired it with a pair of mom jeans (70s style hellooo).
