A love story between 2 Kenyan girls in a society that does not recognise same sex relationship is what this film is all about. 'Rafiki' means 'Friends' in Swahili & that's exactly how the relationship between the 2 starts. This is the first Kenyan film to ever be screened at the 'Cannes Film Festival', a film that was banned in it's own country of origin (the ban was lifted for 7 days to allow the public to watch the film after it created waves in Cannes). 'Rafiki' was one of the many films...

Finally, here is the post that I promised some time back on this previous post about my trip to Leipzig over Easter. The weather was just perfect for such a trip & Leipzig did not disappoint at all. For me, Leipzig felt 'truly German', very correct, focused, old-fashioned, strong & full of history. It is a city full of very beautiful historical buildings & sites which need a longer stay in order for one to enjoy all of them. I guess this means that I will probably have to visit it...

3 guesses what the blog title is about....Hint Hint (Far East Asia & East Africa)! One of the fashion trends in the last seasons has been 'Asian Inspired' & it doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Such pieces are characterized by their ornate detailing with today's designers adding their own contemporary spin to it. The runways & stores were full with Chinese-inspired silhouettes in colorful florals adorned with embroidery, feathering, mandarin collars, contrasting binding & silk...

If there's a dress that should be hanging in every woman's wardrobe, then it should the 'Slip dress'. Actually, this dress hangs already in most women's wardrobes but is mainly worn as an undergarment or in some cases as a 'Negligée'. One of the many reasons why I own several slip dresses, as evident here, is because it can styled in several ways. How you style it depends on which look you are going for (casual or elegant) & also where you are going to (work or out for drinks with friends).

Flowy dresses are an essential for Summer & this year's Summer sure is hot. So I imagined myself in such a dress with my hair flowing in the wind & enjoying the summer breeze with a fruity cocktail in my hand. But there's a change of plot here, there's no hair flowing in the wind because I just did another 'Big Chop'. It still needs some time taking used to but am loving it especially during this crazy hot weather.

The sun is shining, it's getting warmer, am getting darker by the day & have no interest at all in wearing tight-fitted jeans. Mom jeans, boyfriend jeans & straight leg jeans are my thing at the moment, combined with summery tops & accessories & I am ready for this 'early summer'.

Now that Spring has decided to play 'Hide & Seek' with this year, I guess that it's wise for us to also try & sneak in some color into our outfits. Of course we still have to keep ourselves warm but also try to brighten up the dark days that are still upon us.

Everyone & almost all quotes tell us to leave the past behind us. I am a big believer in that but I think to every rule, there is an exception & in this context (Fashion), there is much to be learnt from the past. Like for example, 'Hammer/Harem pants', this is a piece of clothing that has existed since the era of 'Aladdin' (I know that he's not real, but stay with me on this one). And when you move along you will see it being quite 'in' in the 1990's, as I clearly remember watching in...

February which in my view is the month of love is here with us & we have a reason to wear lots of red. This is one of my favorite red sweaters (only one actually) & it has been in my closet for almost 5 years. It is a trusty piece in my wardrobe that I can always rely on to brighten up any dull outfit.

Thrifting always feels like a treasure hunt for me because I never know what am going to find, which make the experience even more exciting. And just like every treasure hunt, there are times that you come out empty handed but of course there are also days that are pretty successful. This whole look is a combination of some of my successful finds that have found a happy place in my wardrobe which will make regular appearances on my Blog, as evident here & here.
