I didn’t know where to start when this blog/style idea first crossed my mind. But as with all destined things – it came to me.
If I am to show you how easy it is to dress the way you were meant to, then the simplest way to do that would be to set a challenge (a style challenge, if you will) and conquer it.
And here is where my (extremely) supportive friends and family come in. Each new post (for now) will consist of a friend/family member setting a style challenge for me and me accepting it and (hopefully) conquering it. Each challenge will have a theme and my challenge is to style the challenger according to the theme. But here’s the twist. I have to style them using pieces already in their wardrobe. Though I am given a leeway of 3 additional pieces, that’s it. I have to dress them using THEIR wardrobe according to the theme THEY choose.
Let the games begin!
My first challenger is the lovely Miss Ogolla a.k.a the baby of our family. She wanted a “walking in the garden” type of look and I got right into it.Outfit 1: Walk in the garden (simplified).
Paired a straight blue maxi skirt with a white textured vest top and a yellow cardigan. Couldn’t help throwing in some floral with a multicolored head scarf. The bright colours gave the look a twirling in the garden look, me thinks.
Outfit 2: Walk in the garden (drop of edge)
A fitting grey maxi skirt, paired with a black floral vest top, topped off with a straw fedora hat. The hat and dark floral add the little edge factor in this outfit, taking it a bit beyond the norm.
Outfit 3: Walk in the garden (full on)An off white maxi dress with floral designs, paired with a maroon chiffon blouse worn as a topper with the buttons open, and gold chandelier earrings. Everything about this says – taking a walk in the garden, don’t you think?!
First outfit challenge complete.
You are unique. You are important. You are loved. 🙂
