OOTD: Last Day of Summer

By Posted on 13 1.3K

Aside: Went to see Skyfall last night at the Odeon and it was GRRREATTT. I now respect Javier Bardem on a whole new level. As for Daniel Craig, amazeballs. He’s never looked more fit. Great acting, perfect cast, amazing movie, unforgettable villain.
 
Now before you go ahead and think ‘Is she bonkers?’ when you spy my outfit of the day, lemme explain. I took these pictures a few weeks go when, believe it or not England still enjoyed a few days of unrelenting warmth and sunshine. I’d had my eye on a pair of ripped washed denim shorts at Miss Selfridge for weeks and finally got them. But the chance to wear them never presented itself. Then I stumbled on an article titled ’20 Worst Buys’ which was about the things that women buy the most but never end up wearing. The super short denim shorts was one of them. Grrrr. …

Style Diary: Gloria O

I have been dying to put up this diary but I had to save it for Friday. Gloria is good and knows her stuff when it comes to style. Her refreshing blog has inspired me over and over. Having her diary featured on ABY (Art Becomes You, do I need to spell it out?) was a must. Now that it’s finally here, let’s not waste any time but delve straight into it.

OOTD: Mama Taught Me Best

By Posted on 13 719

You know your Mom is your Personal Stylist when:
-Every Sunday while you’re in the shower getting ready for church, she is busy preparing your ‘church wear.’
-Every time you’re about to just step out of the house, she will lower the bulletin/paper she had been reading. pull down her reading glasses, squint her eyes as if she is not sure whether she is looking at her own daughter or the neighbour’s dog and say; “Is that how you’re going out?”
-Every time she returns from the market she has bought you a bunch of clothes which she will present to you and say;  “I bought you some ‘correct clothes.’ No be that your girls things them.”
-Every time you’re both out shopping, she will squint at every mini skirt or strapless top that your eyes wander over.
One time we were leaving for church and we were almost running late. …

Riots In England: A Photo Gallery

By Posted on 4 789

You know it’s time to stop about talking about fashion and how to match outfits and block colours when more pressing things like riots and unrest are happening around you. After three days of rioting ( by who knows who),  the streets of most cities in England are covered by armed officers. The violence was sparked by the police shooting of a man that left many angry and confused. Riots are typically ‘contagious’. People tend to copy violent habit despite the fact that they might not even have a clue about what caused the unrest in the first place. Which is exactly what is going on here. What started off in London has (in the space of three days) spread to Birmingham , Nottingham and Liverpool. It is suspected that the riots might continue on to other towns and cities due to its copy cat nature. …
