What do you do when you have to go to work but your hair is a mess? Well I won’t let that spoil my day or whole outfit. Grabbed a scarf, searched on YouTube ways to tie creatively head wraps and voila away good, no wait GREAT to go. I used a scarf with colours in my outfit for the day. It matched the shoes, skirt and jacket and yep I got compliments and even forgot about the messy hair. 🙂 Don’t despair, theres always a way.
Make sure the way you tie your headgear is subtle to fit a corporate environment. Don’t go overboard and do all sorts of artistic wraps. Have fun
Scarf: eBay, Shoes: Woolworths_sa, Skirt and Jacket: Foschini
This is one classic unstructured dress that falls straight from the shoulder, has no darts, little or no side contouring, and is designed not to be worn with a belt. It never worked before when I was lean now I go for it for that smart relaxed casual look.
The warm colours obviously

Another side to my dress
I opted for flats since I knew there will be a lot of moving around. It looks great in soft fabrics.
If you are a pear shaped/triangle this one is for you especially with sleeves this length to create the hourglass balanced body.
It has been a while of no sharing, Well, long story short; I gained weight (UK6 to UK10!). I am not even complaining! For once I’m able to buy most clothes of my clothes off the store and wear them without altering. It was always a battle to find clothes that are ready made and fit. Either waist fit and length didn’t, or length fits but waist didn’t. I also cut my dreads and started new ones. I wanted to try something different. (owai! it didn’t materialise) I know right. Once a locstar, always! anyways, I’ve decided to create a category here to share some of my looks and how I put together some of my outfits. I will if available, also add links where you can buy them.
Below is my favourite LBD – two looks
Dress from Woolworths and Pringle Jacket
The second look is same black dress, OldKhaki Leather Jacket and Green Cross Shoes
Moved from professional to casual with just a change of the jacket.
