Stock Take - July - 02

I am super excited about this series.. Lol..Let's get started

Reading: Goodness. I am reading, or rather, just finished reading this book earlier today. The kind of book you put down and tuck in for the night but your mind ends up thinking of what's happening next(especially towards the end) that you have to wake up and read on. It's 'Hollywood Kids' by Jackie Collins.

Googling: Handbag stuff. It's amazing how when you are interested in something you study it like class 2 maths.

Drinking : Hot water with lemon.. Trying to find out the benefits that people praise upon it.

Fitness: Ten squats every morning.. It's progress. Will be more active by next week.

Wearing : Jeans, rubbers, a t shirt. Carrying a shopper bag. Going window shopping at a market so had to be properly prepared for the hustle.

Eating : Green peas.. Thanks to my mum.

HS01 - Types of Handbags

      " I want my handbags and my shoes to be stylish but I want to make sure that they are versatile. I travel and I have to make sure the pieces I put into my bag can go with a dress or with shorts or jeans." - Maria Sharapova

Kicking off the handbag series (HS) with the first post 01 hence HS01.

Handbags are a crucial item when it comes to an outfit. Different handbags go with different outfits and for different occasions. The right pairing comes in handy in nailing the style game. You will not be caught dead carrying a tote to an evening party. The saying that image the world is your runway should come to mind.. Getting dressed and imagining that there will be cameras on the streets and your outfit will be dissected by one or more columnists of various magazines. This is what I do everyday.

Kicking off with the basics:

1. The Backpack
This is a bag that lies on the wearer's back and is supported by the shoulders. It is a perfect bag to take along to school, a walk, or a picnic.

2. The Tote bag
This is a large structured bag with two straps and an open top. The straps can be short or a bit long in length. This can be carried to the office where the dress code is not too strict(ensure the colors are not too popping), it can also be carried to a meet up with the girls or an outdoor event.

3. The bucket bag
This is a deep bag with an open top and a long strap. It can be carried for an outdoor and laid back meet up/event.

4. Hobo bag

Accessories 101

   "I love accessories. I'm a girl. I love shoes. I love handbags." - Petra Stunt
An accessory in general terms is a thing that can be added to something else in order to make it more useful, versatile, or attractive.
In fashion we define it as something that accentuates an outfit. Makes it look better, stand out.

Most people have the belief that accessories are just jewellery but this is not the case. An accessory can be jewellery, shoes, handbag, coat, blazer, anything that will make your outfit pop and be noticed.

Men mostly accessorize with watches and shoes.
Ladies can accessorize with more stuff. I like quoting handbags and shoes. And a blazer. These will most likely get you noticed if paired properly.

I am super duper excited on getting on this one. We will be kicking off with handbags. I soooo love handbags. I love bags bags and more bags. Yes to good handbags.

Keep it here to learn more.

As always,

Stock Take - July - 01

I have decided to create my own stock taking series just to tell you about the things happening in my life currently. And it will be weekly. Lol. It will improve as we go on. So kicking off today's post:

Reading: OMG!! I am currently reading Armed and Glamorous by Ellen Byerrum. This book is fantastic. I will soon do posts based on this. It has so much great fashion and the lead character is a fashion reporter with a newspaper article title 'Crime of Fashion'. Now, in my book loving excitement, I just bought a novel that I already have and already read, so if anyone of you wants a Jane Green novel, titled 'The Other Woman', contact me via my social media handles and we can talk about it.

Googling: Lol.. I am currently googling how to walk without getting dust on the back of your foot. But it has brought all things biblical. Anyone has a remedy on how to lift legs without carrying dust along?

To New Beginnings!!

Hello everyone,
It has taken me a while to finally push myself to pull down my previous blog and kick off with what I really wanted to do. I did not feel like it was taking the course I really wanted and I had to stop and think about it.
After a lot of soul searching, I decided to go the way I really wanted.
The Image Art is a blog where I will give overall image advice. On how to dress for occasions (must be easiest), carry yourself during occasions, what to wear with what, when etc.
I will also share a little about myself every now and then.
Keep it here as we are about to discover amazing things together.

PS: We can interact on social media and you can ask me any question fashion/style/overall-image-related and I will be glad to answer you.
