My last Weekend Ensemble for 2013; I wore this look the Sunday before Christmas. I must say I must give myself a round of applause because I am doing a very good job transitioning from always wearing denim and pants to appreciating more skirts and dresses as of late. I guess it’s just part of growing up!
This ensemble was a very bold risk for me because I have never worn red nor do I own anything in the colour red; my sister chose the red blouse for me during an impromptu shopping trip. The striped bodycon skirt is from Jet stores Harare and I bought it because it had this allure of quirky and edginess to me when I first saw it; not only that but also another reason is that I love stripes. So I would like to think that this look embodies a lady-like edginess because I’ve a vintage red blouse on, paired with a striped skirt that has a killer zipper detail at the back; topped off with studded pumps (also from Jet) and my signature spiked necklace. The black is embodied in my black tote and I reserve a little class in my oversized Mr. Price sunglasses (Lord, bless these sunglasses because he knows how much I love them and how much they take care of me and further how much they are a prominent feature on the blog…Love love them).
I love how my style has evolved this year, particularly in the latter part of the year. I’ve been trying to master Parisian Chic (as most of you know I am an avid lover of French fashion and it’s cuisine), so I try to incorporate a little bit of French, African and an edge to create the Signature looks you see on the blog.
Yours in Glamour…
