For today’s look, I decided to go “Afropolitan” for casual Friday!
Afropolitan: a word coined from Africa and a great Greek root-polis which means city. Polis can also mean citizenship.
For today’s look, I decided to make all things bright, bold and beautiful in this colourful bow neck tube dress. After all, spring is all about colours. This look is simply a case of if life throws you a lemon, just make lemonade. The weather as you can see in the photos was dark but the dress was colourful enough to make everything bright and beautiful.
If I was given just an option of one season to do colour blocking, I would have to go with Spring. Spring to me is the beginning of all things beautiful. Flowers begin to blossom, the days get longer and more amazing things happen in Spring like wearing brighter and bolder colours.
Finding the perfect pants / trousers for almost every woman is a challenge. Ask me what do I mean?
See, I am a “tall girl” and for me, trousers are always a challenge because my legs from my natural waist line to my feet are about 46 inches. No I am not a giant but that is the story of my life. My legs are longer than my trunk. I like the proportion though, I am not complaining.
The trouser story is the same for every woman or almost every woman. When it comes to trousers / pants, is either they are too long or too short or too wide or too “something”………..
There is however something that now binds us all together, it is the crop trousers or pants.
When it comes to basics, blazers are about the most important one in my humble opinion. Not only are they perfect for when you attend an interview, they are also the perfect style piece to take a look from “drag” to “fab”. In simple terms, the blazer adds polish and sophistication to any look.
Add a blazer to a dressed down look and you will look chic and well put together instantly.
Today, I present to you one blazer styled in five different ways. I hope you find the looks inspiring. Now, let’s get started ………

Recently, I shared my selection of 7 must haves for Spring/Summer. Another chic item to have for Spring/Summer are Wedges.

Pregnancy comes with a lot of excitements; the joy of knowing that you will be bringing a child into the world, the excitement of sharing the news with your friends and family and the joy of feeling the baby grow and move in your tummy amongst other joyful moments.
With all that joy comes with the “little trouble” of what to wear as the bump begins to get bigger.
I got a comment on my You Tube Channel a while back and the comment/request goes thus……”You are very elegant, can you make a video on how to look elegant”? That is flattering to me but challenging I must confess.
I am still cracking my head on how to make a video on how to be elegant. While I am at it, let me share some TIPS on how you can look expensive even when you shop cheap. And of course my take on how to look elegant.

With spring just around the corner, we are almost in for a wardrobe change. This is the season when the heavy coats take the back seat and we then begin to show more skin and embrace more airy clothes.

All of the items can take you from Spring straight into the Summer. Now, let’s have a look……….
When Dolce & Gabanna created Abayas (long line tunics) and Hijabs in their last collection for the Muslim women who love luxury, I was super excited because the collection reminded me of where I came from.
Growing up in a muslim home, one of the things we wore a lot was tunics. We wore the long line ones, longer than the one I have on in this post and we wore the short ones too. Anything tunics, we wore. I loved the ones my grand ma brought back from Hajj, they were gorgeous.
Today, I bring you the long line tunic from day to night.
It is almost inevitable for me not to wear black and white (minimalism). If I don’t wear them formally, I wear them casually. I know I’m not the only one, can I get a witness 🙂
Black and white can however be bland like food without salt. I have figured out how to “spice up” or dress up my black and white and today I will share those TIPS & TRICKS with you. Now, let’s have a look……
