Who knew that finding a nice pair of flared pants in Fall/Winter on short notice would be so difficult. After spending almost half a day running around shopping malls & thift shops, I finally decided to make myself one. So, off I went to Karstadt where i got some Black Denim Fabric which i used to make these pants. I didn't even have time to finish off the hems because I was travelling to Berlin for an event (blogged about it here) but i actually loved the 'unfinished finish' look of them....
For any Ankara/African wax print lover, this shop is the true defination of Fabric heaven. Situated on Fuhlsbüttler straße 460 here in Hamburg is a charming little Fabric shop filled with the most amazing Ankara fabrics which are either made in Africa or from the Vlisco brand in Holland. The Fabrics are of high quality & is the reason why i often buy my fabrics from there. The lovely couple that owns the shop are always very helpful for first-time visitors on which print to choose or how...
Truth be told, styling overknee boots can be somewhat a challenge because they have a way of making an outfit look, well 'over-sexy'. But the perfect way to tone things down a bit is by adding some black tights.
3 Course Dinner, Champagne Reception, Live Music, Entertainment & a chance to give back to the Society; there was no way I was going to miss this Event. The Miss Kenya Germany Charity Event at the La Rosa Restaurant was organised by the winners of Miss Kenya Germany Beauty Paegant 2015 & 2016 to raise awareness to their causes & also to raise funds towards their respective Projects.

Grüß Gott (greetings from Austria) where my Family & I are on Holiday. Hubby was kind enough to drive through Holland so that I could visit 'Jansen Holland‘, one of the main suppliers of African Wax Print (Ankara) Fabricin Europe, they also carry Vlisco Fabrics. Am currently working on a late Fall/Winter collection which will hopefully be out this October & will be incorporating Vlisco‘ Fabric which am so in love with.
