TRIBUTE TO A STYLE ICON ‘MADIBA MANDELA’ (1918-2013)

poster mandela

The activist and first black president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela was a man who spent his life on dismantling the legacy of apartheid through tackling institutionalized racism, poverty and inequality, and fostering racial reconciliation in South Africa. He was recognized to be one of the greatest leaders not only in Africa but the world and will be known forever as the man who sacrificed 27 years of his life fighting for the freedom of his people.

Mandela’s fashion choices were quite unique, consisting mainly of beautifully tailored long-sleeved Print shirts and native African wear, staying true to his roots.

Here are some Mandela inspired looks:

BLAHNIK’S VS LOUBOUTIN’S: ULTIMATE LUXURY SHOE BRANDS FACE-OFF!

I have often wondered who the better designer is when it comes to creating luxury shoes, and today, I will be narrowing that argument down to the two most influential shoe makers in the fashion industry today; Manolo Blahnik and Christian Louboutin.

I have selected the best designs (in my opinion) off the internet to compare both designers.

MANOLO BLAHNIK

There is just something unique, stylish and sophisticated about Manolo Blahnik shoes (and this isn’t because I loved watching Carrie Bradshaw buy them in Sex and the City).

I really admire the originality and thought put into creating these shoes and with comfort an essential part of the design, it works for regular women who want to look stylish yet comfortable.

The only down-side to this shoe line is that some of the designs come off looking somewhat clownish like what to be worn at a circus or fair or something of that sort.

Here are some of the best looks from Blahnik:

CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN 

Christian Louboutin shoes have been greatly popularized by celebrities in Hollywood with notable names such as Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Nicole Kidman etc been seen wearing some of his designs. Louboutin shoes (trademarked red sole shoes) is coveted by everyone from  nurses to  housewifes wanting  at least a pair (the hype is about something, right?!).

I particularly love the edgy-ness and craftsmanship in creating these shoes which feature spiked and stiletto finishing in some cases.

For me, Louboutin shoes aren’t the most artistic or original shoes as I feel like a lot of designs are repeated in new collections.

Here are some of the best looks from Louboutin:

So which is your pick? Blahnik’s or Louboutin’s?

P.S. Assuming money is not an issue, I suggest you rock both designers (Lol.)

Till next time,

Split Personality

 
 
 

Hey guys,

I just created a new set on POLYVORE titled ‘Split Personality’.

This set is inspired by the above-average career woman whose love for high-end fashion items is evident but who is also sensible enough to know that price isn’t a determinant for quality. She is a trendsetter and her style is mainly dependent on her mood. She is very elegant but not afraid to push the boundaries a bit (clear in her color block mini dress), a girly girl with some edge (spiked Alice band) and a rebel at heart but too afraid to show it so she allows glimpses of it to show in her fashion choices.

HOOP DISASTER OR…???

Hey guys,

I just came across this picture of Rihanna aka the style chameleon (in my books) rocking this new jewelry trend of gigantic hoop earrings.

Gotta have it?? or Make it Stop?

For me, it’s MAKE THAT DARN THING STOP!!! It seems like she is carrying two tyres on her ears plus it does look quite uncomfortable.

However, this is my opinion and  I would love to hear what you guys think.
