H E A L I N G: ⁣How’s everyone doing so far today?⁣⁣Revisiting one of my favourite books by @theijeoma and almost every quote is relatable in the middle of this revolution that’s happening. ⁣⁣“1. You must let the pain visit.⁣2. You must allow it teach you.⁣3. You must not allow it overstay.”⁣⁣— Ijeoma Umebinyuo, Questions for Ada⁣⁣Pain comes in different forms. Pain can be quiet. Pain can sneak up on you. Remember it’s okay to feel overwhelmed and also okay to log off and recuperate. ⁣⁣What’s happening is painful but it is NECESSARY. It’s allowed so many black people to express years and years of pent up pain, anger and frustration.⁣⁣But remember to allow yourself to heal ✊🏾🙏🏾 ⁣ #blacklivesstillmatter

P U L L  U P: Morning ig fam. Diversity is a strength, not a threat ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 It’s amazing the support we’ve seen for #BlackLivesMatter over the last few days but let’s keep the momentum going. This is just the beginning. We’re not going to dismantle in a week, racism that has been in-built for decades and it’s going to take more than posting black squares on the feed. Let’s keep calling out BS where we see it. Here for @jackieaina ‘s call for brands to #pulluporshutup 🙌🏾 PS: I shared in my stories my example of a brand that needs to do better when it comes to matching up their actions with their words...

Introducing Mrs Clooney: Amal Alamuddin’s Wedding Weekend Style Rundown

Amal Alamuddin over the weekend has emerged as the bride to envy! Her wedding and after wedding style has got all the style blogs reverberating with praise. George Clooney and internationally renowned barrister Amal Alamuddin tied the knot last weekend. Let’s get into Amal’s elegant style choices.

After getting married in a romantic sunset ceremony in Venice, Italy, George Clooney and his new wife Amal Alamuddin stepped out for the first time as man and wife. The smiling couple left the Aman Canal Grande Hotel, where they tied the knot, arm-in-arm to board a water taxi. Amal wore a gorgeous, embellished white Giambattista Valli Spring 2014 Couture look which once again had a high-low hemline, showing off slender her legs. The beautiful ivory lace macramé dress with colourful peach and pink embroidery was styled with the same metallic-gold pumps as seen on the runway.

 

 

For her official civil union, Amal Alamuddin went for chic and casual elegance. The London-based lawyer slipped into a custom top, and trousers accessorized with a wide-brimmed hat and envelope box clutch all by British designer Stella McCartney. This look is no unexpected for a civil ceremony but my do I love it! She looks very effortless and fresh. I just can’t wait to see what direction her style will take from here. 

A stunning red gown was on tap as she was joined by friends and family for her rehearsal dinner.  For the pre-wedding festivities she donned on a gorgeous custom Alexander McQueen red-and-black gown with flowing train. Red is one of my favourite colours and she slayed in this. Is it me or is her style giving off Kate Middleton vibes with a modern twist? If that’s what she’s here to serve, I’m totally here for it. Loved this look!

Her pre-wedding arrival to Italy was marked by a Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2013 black and white striped ankle-length dress. I love that she wore an Italian brand for her arrival. Bow-front Dolce & Gabbana slingbacks were the perfect complement to her classic ladylike ensemble along with gold Dolce & Gabbana earrings. 

Her wedding dress was by Oscar de la Renta. A lace off-the-shoulder wedding dress is what I would go for myself. I love lace. This woman is timeless. I am developing a style crush already.  Wish them the best! Move over Kimye, Amorge is in the bulding 😉 LOL.

Isn’t Amal the perfect combination of beauty and brains? If I had to pick my favourite look of hers as Mrs Clooney so far, I’d pick the high-low Giambattista Valli Couture Dress. She looked like a dream in that.

Which is you favourite Amal look?
