ROBBED IN A NIGHT ROBE!
I don’t think I need to wish y’all Happy New Year since it’s cliché neither tell you to write resolutions.How many times do we write we want to start exercising, dieting, stop stalking our exes and move on from that heartbreak? By February, we have failed ourselves. But all I wish is that my beautiful readers will purpose to draw closer to God, let go of the past/negative humans,enrich your mind and focus on shining bright in this dim world but keep in mind not everyone is happy when you trying to get your stuff together.
One of my all time fashion obsession is the bath and night robes. This trend is a fashion forward which is worth the try. Fashion is all about breaking the rules and headlines. Do you remember MTV Europe Music Awards 2017 held in London SSE Arena? The outlandish trendsetter, Rita Ora raised eyebrows when she arrived at the red carpet in a bath robe and towel turban. People threw shade and I got texts from some bubbly friends saying they should never see me in such an outfit. But oh well, I was thrifting sometime back and saw this white ruffled custom made night robe and it was a must have in my wardrobe! I wore it the first time with a romper and wow! Everyone was staring like is this girl sober. Some mechanics around were shouting, “Wasichana siku hizi wana mambo wanatuvalia hadi night dress.” (These days girls have become daring such that they can even wear night dress). They really had the guts but I’m simply doing me and setting the trend for their girlfriends.
Rocking a robe is quite challenging and daring; be prepared for all sorts of glances and shady murmurs. I paired my white night robe with a black long side- slit top and ripped tights to give it a monochrome vibe. The atmosphere was full of vibrancy in this look and I could not feel any better when the wind whipped in the gown. The ruffles were all layered and flowy. Do you own a silky, cotton or satin night robe that’s hidden in your bedroom? Maybe it’s time you look for it and show some fashion love by pairing with super-luxe pieces in your closet!
Have a fruitful week and spread love!
