THE EGYPTIAN GODDNESS

The Egyptian fashion was created to keep cool while in the hot desert. It was adorned with precious jewels which was meant for beauty and comfort. The ancient Egyptian are not remembered for their rich history only, but for their beautiful and ornate fashion. The Egyptian fashion represents both practicality and indulgence. To achieve this type of look you have to make it simple and symbolic with a bit of amazing jewelries.The Egyptian woman usually worn garment which was used to display their curves. They worn headpiece made of jewelry  which was often the most extravagant on the whole ensemble.  They used a lot of gold because gold was in abundance in ancient Egypt, they also worn amulets which were carved into different images or figures.

Which shoes go well with Egyptian dress

Gold shoes go well with an Egyptian dress, for this outfit I choose gold footwear

So don’t be afraid to style your green dress with gold because the result is gorgeous.

Black shoes go well with this type of outfit too, cream shoes can also be an alternative.
To bring the Egyptian look to a modern day contemporary look we had to style it with stilettos and not with gladiator shoes.

THE TALE OF RED

Today I celebrate my 100st blog post, what can I say it has been fun and I enjoy doing it.

I also want to thank my readers, friends and fans who have always supported me  we have really come a long way.

To celebrate my 100st blog post I decided to go for the red ball dress.

As you may know by now Red is my favourite colour and I cannot get enough of it.

Red symbolizes passion, desire, love, strength, courage and danger above all it is a warm colour filled with glamour and sophistication which compliment my skin very much.

I know the question on your mind, can I also wear Red? Yes you can. Everyone can wear red, this is because it comes in different shades, so it depends on your skin undertone to know the right shade of red which will suit you.

When you have a cool undertone you will look best in maroon or crimson
When you have a warm undertone you will look best in scarlet but if you have neutral undertone you can wear almost any shade of red.

Red is also for a bold and romantic personality.

Get inspired by this look

They are usually sold in 12  yards, which is a full piece or half piece of 6 yards.

I am working on volume 2 and 3 at this moment. I love to use this opportunity to thank my team of experts, friends and facebook fans for always suporting me, without you guys I would not do it.

To celeberate this great occasion I decided to go for a bungundy dress.

Bungundy makes you think of silly things, Bordeaux makes you talk about them and champagne makes you do them “Jean Anthelme Brillat Savarin

Bungundy is now the new black, as you know bungundy is a dark red colour that is sometimes called Oxblood, Maroon or bordeaux. Bungundy dress can just be what your wardrobe is missing, add this deep alluring colour to your wardrobe because a feel of it can be intoxicating and you cannot get enough of it.

Whether you want to evoke a vision of berries or wine your bungundy dress call for a deep taught of what shoes you have to wear with it.
This depends on your personal taste and the occasion. You can wear bungundy shoes with bungundy dress which is what I did, to create a monochromatic look with a feel of harmony within the colours.
I also added a fur shawl to give it a feel of Old Hollywood glamour which is always my thing.

You can also wear bungundy dress with gold or silver shoes or even with Nude shoes e.g cream or black.

In general nudes shoes soften a bungundy outfit. You can decide to play it safe or edgy which ever way you choose instant glamour is guaranty.

BABY DOLL DRESS WITH A FUR SHAWL

The baby doll dress is a hit this season. To look good in a baby doll dress you must style it with high heels and choose the right length.
The baby doll dress is an inspiration from a baby doll nightgown.
This dress is feminine and flirty and it accentuates your best assets. The doll dress always involve lace, ruffles due to its childlike nature. This style is commonly seen in infants clothing.
The Empire waist dress is similar to the baby-doll dress. The different is that the Empire waist line dress is longer and the waistline just hit below the bust. The empire waist line has its name because it first gain its popularity during the French Empire we will talk about the Empire waist line in my other blog post. The great thing about the baby doll dress is that you don’t have to think about what you must wear with them, they will take centre stage when its comes to a night out.
This dress is design to show what your mama gave you when you bend over that is why they are very short.
The movie Baby Doll gave a boost to this style of dressing.
I decided to pair the baby doll dress with a fur shawl to keep warm and to give the whole look an elegant feel with a touch of glamour.
