Mitumba!

Mitumba!

We all do it. A lot of times, we lie about it. I’m talking about mitumba. Sadly, the state of our local clothing industry is far from the point where I would be inclined to buy Kenya build Kenya. Well, I might be content with an abysmal lack of choice in tea towels from Nakuru textiles, but when it comes to things I actually care about – like my clothes, accessories and house furnishings – I insist on choice and creativity. And where better than in the second-hand clothes markets of Kenya, where even the… Continue reading →

Choosing the Right Bathing Suit for Your Body Type

Choosing the Right Bathing Suit for Your Body Type

There are many types of swimsuits in the market, and some will flatter your shape better than others will. Despite the many styles, the bathing suit will be either a one piece or a two-piece swimsuit. Cut, design, print, and fabric, will all play together to either enhance your shape or not. If you choose swimwear according to your body type, you have a better chance of liking the fit and how it enhances your shape. Whether you prefer a one piece or a two-piece, you can find a style that fits your figure. If… Continue reading →

An obsession with fads

An obsession with fads

Human psychology shall forever remain a mystery to me, it’s funny how our minds are tricked into doing something because others are doing it, or because you will be considered cool once you do it. When it comes to fashion, there are items which seem to flood the market over a certain period of time. Our minds are tricked into purchasing these items because everyone across the globe seems top have one and we don’t want to be left behind. I have to admit that women are the worst victims when it comes to fashion… Continue reading →

Purple at last!

Purple at last!

I’ve been trying to get my hair coloured for a while, and I finally gave up  after four tries and three thousand shillings. I didn’t want to pour more money down the sink. Plus, I was afraid my hair would fall off. Hair colour can do that sometimes. The saga began with a mix of two colours – ultraviolet black and aubergine. This was followed by some food colour, more aubergine, and some wailing with mirrors. The first time I dyed it, the hairdresser said it was coloured, but my baby girl said otherwise. I… Continue reading →

Wear boots and look good in them!

Wear boots and look good in them!

Over the last century only one type of shoe has remained timeless in a woman’s wardrobe, the boot. The boot has been around since the 16th and 17th century and was mainly worn in the North America due to rough terrain. However it was popularized by the American cowboys in the 18th century and up to today it is widely associated with the Wild Wild West. Over the years the boot has evolved, and once worn out of necessity has become a fashion item in our wardrobes. Boots come in various materials, shapes and sizes… Continue reading →

Cleavage Spillage

Cleavage Spillage

‘If you got it flaunt it’ that’s one of the new age sayings. Well not everything should be flaunted at least not in my books of fashion. Am talking about cleavage, call me old fashioned, backward or whatever you wish but I like to consider myself conservative. I have nothing against showing off a bit off bust cleavage its actually flattering especially during a girl’s night out, cocktail parties or other funky events. Bust cleavage will be totally unflattering if your twins are spilling off your outfit and that isn’t a pretty sight. Although we… Continue reading →

When You Go To Rome…

When You Go To Rome…

I’m seated on the couch one Saturday morning, having my breakfast and watching crazy cartoons. This particular one gets my attention; the setting is in ancient times. The men are fighting and killing each other in these nice gladiator shoes and even after the repetitive in between commercials, I keep thinking about those gladiators. (Yes, it’s all about the shoes). Later in the afternoon walking around the malls, I see the same gladiators. The gladiator shoe fashion trend came a few seasons ago but they were initially there since the ancient Roman time. Back then… Continue reading →
