  • How to Pull Off a Velvet Look

    If you follow me on Instagram (@winnie.odande), I did promise to give you tips on how to pull off a velvet look.
    Velvet is one of those luxe fabrics that can instantenously look elegant and glamorous but also stands the risk of looking cheap if worn badly. A 70s fashion trend, the velvet trend made a […]

  • MILITARY GREEN

    What’s in a colour?
    Now, what’s in your favourite colour?
    If you were to ask me, I would say without thinking that green is my favourite colour. I don’t know how and when I came to love this colour. All I know is it’s got me real bad.
    Green to me is like that boy you have a […]

  • Like We Never Left

    Well, hallo people!
    We are finally back *insert South African accent.*
    It’s been almost a year without blogging but we are now back on track.
    Back like we never left at all.
    Sometimes it’s good and necessary to take some time back, reflect, strategise, rejuvenate, and come back bigger and better.
    This year I want to take you through a […]

  • Hit by The Bug!

    The bug hit again.
    Yea, I know. I’ve become more of a passer-by here. Like I told you in an earlier post, I may disappear but won’t leave. This will always be that home I know I can come back to.
    The break has been necessary, and driven by the fact that I needed to focus on […]

  • Bloom Boldly

    I’m a big proponent of bloom where you’re planted. I feel so many of us are caught up in some sick comparison game where we spend most of our lives looking over our shoulders to see what our peers are doing, at the expense of what we ought to be doing. We have failed to […]

  • Pieces of My Heart

    I feel like for a long while now I’m always starting my posts with a hiatus explanation. Is it a bad thing, not necessarily. Sometimes, situations around you call for that &/or juggling two things that both demand of your time can sometimes be tricky. As some of you may know, I’m also a stylist […]

  • Getting Your Groove Back

    When it comes to blogging there’s this push and pull existing that sometimes I’m not sure which direction it will lead me. I feel like I’ve lost my groove and need my mojo back.
    I’ve been finding it hard to put out a post despite having content in form of photos, that I can use. My […]

  • How to Style your Denim Shirt

    I do hope your week is off to a good start. Mine has been spent indoors working on my hair as today was wash day among other things. I’m still deliberating on whether to leave my hair out for a few days or weave it. Anyway, I’m back again with the denim shirt as seen […]

  • Denim x Fro

    If there’s a piece of clothing that has managed to transcend the sands of time and still stay relevant, must be denim. Have you ever seen the denim cloth go out of trend? I don’t think we ever will.

    On the contrary, guys are finding new ways of wearing it and styling it every darn time. […]

  • Let’s Talk Music

    I love music. I used to be in a singing group when growing up. Good times those were. If it comes down to it, I can sing to save my life. I’m not good with instruments though, never got a chance to learn, or is it that I never made time?
    Anyway, one of my dream […]
