Wardrobe Malfunctions 2

Have you read the first piece with the same title? Don’t miss out because it’s really good stuff, promise! Anyway, I’ve found myself in some awkward situations over the years and I know I’m not alone. There have been times when what to say, or do with respect to other people’s appearance was a predicament… It’s easy enough to have …

Wardrobe Malfunctions

I’ve been thinking about this topic on and off but most recently it’s been at the forefront since last week Thursday. I also found it really interesting when there was another celebrity costume mishap. I’m sure everyone’s seen the Toni Braxton video where her dress (the back) practically left her in the altogether on stage. Several questions come to mind …

Au Natural

On a good day I don’t really stand out, although others might beg to differ. Being above average height sometimes makes me distinct but I’m still less than six feet (sob!) and don’t think it’s a big deal. Once I decided to go the natural hair route it changed the game remarkably. Now whether I like it or not it …

School Uniforms and Current Trends

It’s been quite some time since I was required to wear a school uniform. Thankfully I never had one that made me cringe or daze the eyes with the colour combination either! Sadly that’s not the tale many children have to tell nowadays, especially those in private schools. Public schools still manage to stay somewhat sane, but you be the …

This is a phrase that old timers should be very familiar with and since I’ve been around for a bit I make no apologies about using it here. For the younger folks that read this and don’t have a clue to what I mean I’ll try and explain it in a way that you’ll understand…I hope! Your ‘bottom box’ (gives …

Fashion Accessories: The ‘Other Bag’

It is usual to see them carrying their handbag (quite often large and stuffed with the important items they simply cannot do without) and inevitably the ‘other bag’. It would have been simple (you’d think!) for …

Fashion Designers, Innovators and Trends

Fashion comes and goes and comes and goes again. A cycle that ensures successive generations can recall how the current trend had been worn and accessorised, photographic evidence available in abundance, just in case memory fails. This is a relentless circle that evokes nostalgia and constant innovation by designers and wearers alike! Designers constantly seek new ways to make fashion …

Fashion: The Unrelenting Mistress.

Fashion is a demanding mistress, merciless; some might even call her a bitch! She doesn’t do her things by halves and will give no ground if you dare confront her. She’s a prima donna and you either love her or hate her…no tepid emotions or opinions of this lady. There are those that have been enthralled by and are firmly …

Men and their Hairy Adventures

Men plaiting their hair is still hard for me to swallow. Trying to wrap my head around the fact that a man willingly subjected himself to ‘unnecessary’ pain in a bid to achieve a ‘certain’ look beats my imagination! So, when I see that the number has increased I’m totally amazed at what I’ve missed. As a woman my perm, …

The Knapsack’s come back

Like everything, the knapsack has been re-invented and made more fashionable. The definition for knapsack is; a large sturdy fabric bag, often on a metal frame, worn on the back and used by hikers. This definition brings to mind the canvas bags slung over the back by people trekking in the mountains and other rugged terrain. They are not comely …
