Young Africa Designs

 Aaaahhhh.... the young African fashion designers (by young, I mean anywhere from 18 - 45 years old, lol...) are creating some incredible clothes.  I saw some innovative designs by Africans, online, that made my mouth drop.  There are some fantastic ideas in terms of silhouettes ( take a look at Blacktrash designs for example.... yes, the name astounded me, but the clothing is phenomenal...) and there are lovely combinations of fabrics, colors and prints.   Applause!


Till next blog!

Flattering Flats Fad

 Last Saturday evening, I took my daughter shopping for shoes.  We had both finished work in the evening, and she called my cell and asked if I wanted to shop for shoes.  I was ready to go home and take it easy, but I decided to go with her.  I did promise her a week before  that I would treat her to a pair of shoes, so better to go Saturday than a few days later.  And I did spend quality time with my son on Friday (took him to a movie) so it was the daughter's turn.

Well, she found a fabulous pair of 2" (they might be 3" high actually) wedge heeled sandals  with a great brown print on the wedges, the strapped part in black.  I told her even I would wear those shoes (if I were able to stand in high heels longer than half an hour) because they look just lovely.  But I don't wear heels higher than 1".  Love to be comfortable in my clothing and accessories.  I did buy a couple of flats about a month ago, one a cherry red color, and very comfortable, and the other in a light brown color with a hint of an orange tint.   And so this post is dedicated to flats (and a sandal).

Till next time, next blog!
