Geometry

Geometry in Kente- My African ClosetHello Lovelies.

Its been a while and life had been a bit hectic over the past month, but I’m not complaining. I’ve basically been unable to shoot any outfits in a long time, mainly because most of my clothes are in storage at the moment so I’m essentially living in jeans and tshirts at the moment. Anyway, I thought I’d share this look from my new kente collection in the meantime, so you know I’m still thinking of you.

Hey Lovelies,

This outfit right here is what I call a grab and go look. I’ll explain the grab and go theory later but for now, can we just talk about these peplum pants. I mean, this outfit is pretty straight forward, a jumper and a pair of trousers, casual and still great for the office when you just need to go go go and can’t be bothered about your outfit, but the peplum adds such a fun and fresh dynamic to the look.

Blue Suede shoes

My African Closet- Blue suede

 

BEcause let’s be totally honest, who hasn’t always wanted a to be able to sing that line in from that Elvis Presley song and mean it.

Hello Lovelies,

I have always wanted blue suede shoes ever since I learnt the Elvis song but have never actually found a pair in a style and size that I like. A few years back, I settled for a green suede pair cos I figured that was probably as close as I was ever going to get, then I spotted this pair through the windows of a shop in Brixton and the rest is history. And you wouldn’t actually believe how cheap they were. Infact, you should guess, like seriously!!

Ok, i’m done nerding out over Elvis songs and blue shoes now. Hope you are all having a good Month so far. And feel free to guess the price of the shoes in the comments section. AJ

Uniform

Uniform- My African closetHappy Monday lovelies,

By now, you guys know my default uniform because you’ve seen it many times. When I’m in a hurry or just feeling lazy, I just grab a mixed print skirt, pair it with a shirt or top, in this case my favourite striped top and a banging pair of heels. The reason why I love this look is because due to the boldness of the skirt, you don’t really need much else to make the look pop. I love these mixed print skirts, they kind of just happened out of the bluer and have gone onto become my personal signature and one of the signature pieces of my brand. And of course, the skirts are super easy to style and very versatile. Its just like your usual, black pencil skirt that works everywhere and fits with everything but this one also has gorgeous prints.
