The Bomber Jacket



Hello there! today's post consists of autumn/winter's biggest trend "The Bomber Jacket" it was seen all over the runway, many Blogger's and celebrities have been sporting the trend so I had to spin my own twist on it.  The bomber Jacket was the eighties staple, and now it comes in various coloures, textures and shapes. I love that it can be dressed up or down in a feminine or masculine manner. 
Many brands have been experimenting with different fabrics including lace, sheer, cotton, silks and jersey. So if your on the search for the perfect 'Bomber Jacket' then find carefully which material and shape best suits you.

The army appropriate shade bomber jacket is the main focus point here as its the statement piece. I find that Bomber jackets generally add a androgyny touch so I added a black top and skirt to lent the look a feminine touch. I opted for black knee length boots for that edgy look, and to finish off the outfit I added these really cool sunglasses I bought during the summer.  I really wanted this outfit to be a different interpretation of the Bomber Jacket trend and I hope I have succeeded (fingers crossed) lol do let me know your thoughts guys :)

Black & Nude


Hello my lovelies! I hope you are well and ready for the weekend. Before I introduce my new post  I would like to take this opportunity to apologies for the inconsistency on my blog as of lately. I know some of you emailed and sent me messages via Instagram regarding this issue. I've been transitioning From my old job, and now I have a new job and the hours are crazy. However, I can officially say I'm back!

okay now that's out of the way lets get into! lol I had so much fun shooting this post last week, we had an Indian Summer so the  weather was too beautiful and I couldn't resit not to shoot. I wanted a really playful outfit nothing too serious, something that can be worn on a night out, date or dinner. I really like this combination, it's sexy but not showing too much skin, I know it's getting cold now so you can add a long coat on top to keep warm if you want to.

I hope you enjoy :)

LONDON FASHION WEEKEND| RUNWAY REVIEW


Hello my lovely readers! I hope you had a good weekend.

Today's post consist of my fashion Weekend outfit and review.  I attended  the OUTNET.com SPRING 2015 trend catwalk.


 The OUTNET.com is the largest fashion outlet offering trend setting fashion, It launched in April 2009 by the Net-A-PORTER GROUP ltd. It's the home of many designers, in particular "Victoria Beckam" she sold approximately 600 items from her wardrobe in the aid of charity for Mothers2mothers.

The OUTNET.com did not disappoints in delivering a trend setting collection that amazes the British Fashion. The show had the perfect balance of sultry sophistication and high fashion edge, containing  sharp and edgy tailoring with gorgeous details, pieces accented with bold sophisticated designs to sporty trousers. The show featured collections from One and only, Candy Crush, Jungle Fever and Fairy Tale Ending. 

The catwalk started strong with gorgeous textures, focusing on nude colours with  Confident take on one tone outfits, turning it into pastel and colourblocking, focusing on colours such as Bourdoux, peach, cream and Brown. This collection mainly featured smart trousers, skirts and Cocktail dresses. Focusing on very clean cuts on tops and asymmetric hemline on mini skirts. Highly fresh and simple  intake with an edge.
The show really began to Pop with pretty pieces containing lovely colours such as Lilac, powder pink, and baby blues. Detailing strong lines, focusing on structure, silhouette, sharp tailoring and
Elegant sport wear. It has that grown and sexy firce attitude, containing strong lines and pretty colours that went from ultimate sparkle with embellishments, floaty gowns, delicate details, dash of leather, animal print, and  triba print. The collection felt vibrant and fresh, a great example of modern minimalism. It was all about simplicity with an edge proving that less is always more.

Garden of Eden

Hey everyone! 
I headed out for lunch close to the south of Congo in a restaurant called Garden of Eden. It's such a beautiful place and I had a good time. The restaurant is situated by a river, the view was amazing. I really liked the food, it was lovely but very expensive. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of my food as I was very hungry lol I apologies. However, I managed to take pictures of my outfit and the location. I hope you enjoy :) 


After lunch I headed to the city where I came across this painting in Bon Marche. I immediately fell in love it, as it summaries life in Congo. This painting really speaks loud to me because it's so realistic, Congolese people work so hard, everyone is selling something to make a living. I really admire that about them, despite all they are strong. I don't know who the artist is but I love his work. 
I also visited Boulevard Patrice Lumumba.  My favourite politician in the history of Congo. He was one of the youngest leaders who genuinely wanted the best for Congo. He fought for what was right and mostly important the population. He was assinated in 1961 and his body was never found.

OOTD

Hello there, it's been a hot minute. I hope your well. I'm still away on holiday in Congo, I've been having trouble  connecting to the internet. Still, I'm trying my best to keep you guys updated with what I have been doing. The last few days I've been spending a lot more time with family and also catching up with my best mate who is also here on  holiday. We headed out for dinner with her family where we enjoyed a lovely meal. I hope you enjoy :)

I opted for this very light and comfortable  shirt from H&M, shoes from River Island and Chanel bag.
