Hi fashionatiis, hope you are great and had a lovely weekend. I couldnt help loving these looks through last week and interestingly I find they all have one thing in common, they are all very minimalist in style but with a little twist, a little something that kept it all from being too bland as in the case of Jada, her fringed shoes and in Chris Jenner, her furry bag or even the colorful detailing on her collar and sleeves. So as the weather takes a plunge, you may find that your style becomes even more pruned and minimal, I would suggest that as in the examples from this week, you should strive to incorporate that one thing that keeps it fresh. Do have a great week and remain inspired! Continue reading »

Alexander Wang for H&M. Photo: H&M

Is this the most anticipated collaboration of the year or what? Ever since the queen oof sporty chic Rihanna stepped out in a piece rumoured to be a part of the collection, my antennae has been up and ready waiting for the collection to drop. We have seen the campaign and now the lookbook is out and much as I want to join fashionistas out there in jumping up and down and marking all my favourite pieces, waiting for the collection to hit the stores come November 6 and praying fervently that the price range are fair and within budget, my pregnant self can only stare in admiration at most of the pieces. With sporty chic or luxe sport currently a major trend right now, this collection is a hit. It has the designer’s dna splashed all over and even if you know very little about Alex Wang and his aesthetics, you cant miss his name boldly emblazoned on most of the pieces.

Alexander Wang for HM will be available in 240 stores worldwide and online at hm.com. Continue reading »

Currently Loving … Statement earrings

20140522-222018

Back in Uni days, I had a friend who would never be caught dead without earrings, she informed me in all earnestness that earrings make the black woman and without it, we come off looking pale. Prior to then, I never thought of earrings as having this phenomenal transformatory powers. And so it came to be that after that conversation, I resolved to start collecting and wearing earrings, Godforbid I come off looking pale.

This friend of mine, always wore large statement pair on braids and the combination of both never failed to leave her face very illuminated and pretty. I loved that look and couldnt waited for the semester to be over so I can go shopping for large earrings that I would wear with my weaves. Braids and I were never friends, it has a way of pulling half  of my hair along with it when its time to come off. Unfortunately noone educated me on the fundamental principle or guide to buying large statement vintage earring so I literally got the heaviest of the bunch because you see, they usually are the prettiest, its as though the makers set out to compensate for the torture they will put you through by making them really beautiful.
