The dress

Office wear

I continue my wonderful love affair with "the dress" with this Asos frock with a gorge barouque print..fitted and right below the knee.
I'm also spotting a faux afro. I'm seriously considering going natural permanently. This is a dry curl (perm)- it gives you a nice soft faux- fro even if you have straight hair.

Who is Lupita Nyong'o

Who's that girl?



You will soon get to know who Lupita is, if you don't already. She is in the critically acclaimed movie 12 years a Slave.
This Kenyan striking beauty stole the spotlight in a orange Ralph Lauren dress at the Golden Globes. I am sure everyone is going to be talking about her for a long time.

Beyonce

Let me start this post by making it abundantly clear that I am a Beyonce fan. I was one of the thousands of fans that bought her latest album the day it came out on iTunes. I have replayed every song and am in awe of her amazing talent and impressed by her innovation.

However the more I listen to the album and watch the videos the more I realise in horror how explicit Beyonce's content has become. Forget "To the left...to the left".. Yonce has graduated her lyrics from playful innuendos to what I consider explicit sexual suggestions ("let me sit this a*s on you..show you how I feel..let me take this off..") reminiscent of a rap album. We all slammed Miley for twerking but why is there no one saying anything about Bey's lyrics some of which I am not even comfortable writing on this blog. Okay so some people raised issue with "Bow down Bi*tches" which I must admit I found less offensive- I think it may have been a tad misinterpreted. Some of the songs like "Rocket" from the new album make me blush especially at the thought of a 9 year old singing along.

The question is should it be Bey's problem that your 9 year old is "rocking" to "Rocket"? Is it not the parent/ guardian's job to ensure their child is not exposed to unsuitable content? My biggest issue is that when Miley does it there are open letters written, why the double standard? Some songs on the Album like "Pretty Hurts" are pretty tame but the general tone is that of sex and the videos support that tone. More than a million copies of the Beyonce album have been sold to date which begs the question does music have to be sexual to sell?    
What are your thoughts?

This skirt used to be an evening gown from Edgars. Its been in my closet for years- until I decided to re purpose it into this sheer maxi skirt. I am very pleased with the results.

New Years Eve look


This is a quick post of my New Years Eve outfit. It was very hot in Jo'burg and this silk dress was perfectly light for the weather.
