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.

Hey guys! Here is today's outfit of the day while hanging out in Bon Marche in Congo. I headed out for dinner with my sister and her friends so I thought to share my outfit. I've gained weight guys! (Cryin) I think it's drastic because I have been eating so much bread and meat at very late hours. So when I come back to the UK it's on! I can't wait to go back to the gym and on a diet. Anyway. I hope you enjoy today's post :)

The Blue Dress

Hello everyone! I thought I would put this up from earlier on today, my sister and I went out for a meal in Kinkole city. It's the best place in Congo for fresh food such as fish and meat. It's a really nice place to relax filled with music and entertainment. I really enjoyed myself, it's a nice place to hang with friends or family. You guys already know it's my first time in Congo since 1998 therefore everything is new to me. I'm happy to be in my country, but I'm starting to feel home sick. I miss my family, friends and the babes :) but not long to go now until
We have to go back.

For today's post I decided to go for this blue dress, I love the colour as it's so strong and vibrant . A skater blue dress goes a long way guys! I paired it with a black and gold sandles, black sunglasses and Louis Vuitton bag. I apologies for the quality of these pictures as I'm using my iphone to take pictures. 

    We ordered fish and kwanga 
The best drink in Congo is Viltal'O
I bought a bracelet with my name stamp, I absolutely love it!

All Black Everything


Hello there, I hope all is well.
I'm continuously having a good time in Congo with my sister. I'm loving visiting my family who I haven't seen for more than 20 years, it feels  amazing to be home. This whole experience is constantly teaching me that God is good. Many have died or are laying in hospital beds fighting for their lives, but me and you are alive we must give thanks. Anyway, today I went to see my cousin and this is what I wore. For some reason I was in the mood to wear all black with a hint of red. I hope you enjoy :)
