UNITED IN LOVE

 

IMG_6259

The history of Valentine’s Day and the story of its patron saint still remains a mystery. Who was Saint Valentine, and how did he become associated with this popular day celebrated by millions across the world? One legend contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome marrying young lovers in secret. When Valentine’s actions were discovered, he was put to death. Other stories suggest that Valentine may have been killed for attempting to help Christians escape harsh Roman prisons. According to another legend, an imprisoned Valentine fell in love with his jailor’s daughter who visited him during his imprisonment. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter signed “From your Valentine,” which is still used today. Although the truth behind the Valentine legends is unclear, the stories all symbolise a sympathetic, heroic and romantic figure.

While traditions and stories have changed throughout the years, the primary colours have remained the same.
Red and White speak of unity.

[Makena wears a red sweetheart neckline strapless jumpsuit paired with white strappy sandals] The colour red is associated with meanings of love, passion, desire, heat, longing, lust, sexuality, sensitivity, romance, joy, strength and vibrance. Red roses are traditionally reserved for intimate, romantic relationships and symbolize energy, passion and deep love.

It is considered to be the colour of perfection. White means safety, purity, and can represent a successful beginning. White roses symbolize spiritual love, purity, humility and faithfulness, a valuable component in any love relationship.
So this Valentine’s remember to:
L…ook fabulous!

Valentine Special. Pt. 1

 

IMG_6648

Let me educate you on something about valentine’s day this time round. For starters, it is a ‘much awaited’ day for many people. Emphasis on the quotations! Not everyone looks forward to this overly celebrated day. However, valentines should be an amazing day -a celebration of love, a feeling we’ve all felt at some point in our lives. It is also a time when people around the world and on the streets of Nairobi tend to don their red outfits. From shirts to ties to shoes to even hair ,or even contact lenses.

This look brought back the 20’s era. I wore a baby pink shirt paired with grey pants and two-toned brogues; accessorised with red suspenders and a newsboy cap. A look inspired by the late great Micheal Jackson.

Makena, wore a floral sundress and a pair of white flat sandals.

For the sense of fashion , just a hint of red complemented by other colours will do just fine, so just a piece of your outfit can be red .

“For love was in the air and it was all they took in

Through their nostrils and out through their actions therein

Out through the words they spoke and that was the design of love ” ~@living.poet (Billy Odhiambo)

 

Another thing I would like to educate you on this valentines is what to wear. As I at times say ,do as I do .

We can dance in the rain and sleep under the stars

We can tour the world and swim in its oceans

We can fly like the birds and play like baby pandas

But this is only amazing because its with you

So will you be my valentine

So we can dance in ecstacy as we live to love

PURPLE RAIN

Word around is that Monday is not always the best of days

Coming from a weekend that you did not want to end

Monday comes in as the greatest paradox of all time

However, life (Monday) is as you make it, and if you want it (Monday) to be amazing, it (Monday) will be amazing.

But first take a bold step and look stunning

Then take ten thousand more as you go at life.

My suggestion to you is, on a Monday, you want to look like you have taken command of your day and especially your week.

Just do as I do.

This purple (antique fuchsia) suit coupled with a deep purple/aubergine shirt (with all the details considered) has a fine checked design that is definitely a show stopper and soft to touch. To inject some character into this combination, I decided to pick a shirt with a white collar and white cuffs. The white collar comes in handy when I add in the black tie that also has some fine detailing of its own that makes it cleverly contrast the rest of the outfit. This look is simple yet sophisticated in its own way.

A pair of black shoes or a pair of heathstone brown shoes will fit this look.

Fashion is a style of the soul

So as you wear your bespoke

Am sure you will be the best spoken

Have an amazing week.
