  • 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 […]

  • #MyStyletribe: What is it?

    When we set out on #mystyletribe movement, it was about bringing out the best in each other.
    It was two women, in love with fashion, looking out to grow their business, their networks, and their personal¬† brand by holding each others hands. We realised that you go farther when you walk with another because two heads […]

  • 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 […]

  • How I Come up With My Blog Titles

    I’ve been asked this question before.
    How do you come up with your blog titles?
    To be honest, I don’t have a set formula.
    My blog title is always inspired by the outfit, current mood/mindset, and what is happening around me.
    Most times I look at the outfit I’m about to post and from there I’m able to come […]

  • The Woman I’m Becoming

    The woman I was yesterday, introduced me to the woman I am today; which makes me very excited meeting the woman I’ll become tomorrow.

    Cheers to the woman I’m becoming.
    The woman who has learnt that it is okay to be flawed. It is okay to have imperfections, for therein lies the beauty.

    This woman has realised that […]

  • 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 […]

  • Black x White

    Don’t you wish everything in life was in Black x White with no grey areas? Grey areas can be so frustrating, emotionally daunting and full of uncertainty. On the flipside, they also open up something new. They force you to think deeper, reflect on self and things around you, and also spark necessary debate on […]
