My story Don’t really consider myself as a fashion icon. Sometimes I get it and sometimes I don’t. I don’t buy fashion clothes, I love beauty, uniqueness,creativity and individualism in clothes. Shopping? No, retail therapy any day but I don’t mind doing eye shopping looking for that great deal or #justNje.
Fashion and South Africa? Well I always have a problem with the way we represent ourselves as South Africa we not proud of who we are any thing will do as long as I’m an American, Geez! what with the fake ascent and American wanna be clothing…. For me, I think Africa is mysterious and evolving we suppose to host ” never been seen fashion events” if you page through our magazines the first labels you see are international with an upset price tags, and somewhere a South African designer is closing shop. Let me not work myself out you know what mama Maya said ” if you don’t like something change it” yes mama I’m still on my search.
Online shopping? I haven’t climb on that wagon yet my reason being when I do my shopping I love touching feeling my clothes the fabric sometimes of the item is my deciding point of should I or should I not? And when do I fit in that silky silk dress, although I know I’m not gonna buy. I thought with on-line clothing stores we were going to move away from the magazine photo shops, we will see real women with bit of flaws OMG was I wrong or was I delusional to think like that with so many apps to photoshop and brush up….. Barbie is not white any more black Barbies are in every street corner.
I miss my South Africa of wonders, diversity, artistic and flamboyance
