The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance#Aristotle
Is it a knee length trouser? Is it a skirt? That is what we ought to ask ourselves every time we see culottes because that is what they resemble. Culottes have been trending for a while now and what better way to rock them than in Ankara material? These cropped pants have gone from iffy trend to a must have wardrobe staple and all I can say is that you need to jump on this bandwagon.
I decided to rock this little number for my Ankara series which is almost coming to an end. I know you wanna ask me the million dollar question….”Where have you been?” First and foremost, I finally moved out on Tuesday last week. It was hectic and chaotic and I did not have wifi for the whole week till Sunday and that is when I realized that wifi is as important as food in this day and age.
I am technically settled now and adjusting little by little. There are things that I will however miss from my previous home which are having not cooking for myself or do my own laundry, come to think of it I was only required to stay alive by eating, sleeping and working out.
My parents think this move will make me grow and spread my wings and I think they are right. I will have to be more responsible and act like an adult. I used to look at my younger half siblings and act a certain way because they did instead of being an adult, maybe because I was jealous or I didn’t know better.
I was also always angry at the people I lived with and at times it was for no apparent reason but now that I live alone I will have my peace of mind and my sanity will be at 100%. My friends have been a rock during these period, my mums and you my readers have darlings through your support. I have a good feeling that something great is about to happen and I can’t wait for it to come to pass so that I can share it with you. In this shoot I decided to channel my inner Picasso and do some painting and this Ugandan painter was a great teacher.
Stay fashionable, stay stylish and be a fashion style mogul!
Thank you to all that stopped by time and time again!
