ON WEDNESDAY WE WEAR PINK

HI SMEARS!!!


WELL, it seems I have forgotten that my love for blogging did not originate from my own personal style. my passion for spotting trends and trendy people was the original inspiration. I am uber excited to share something with you that I've been seeing everywhere from runways to the streets and its even started seeping into home decor. if you hadn't already guessed that something is the colour pink!!

THE colour pink is often associated with being physically weak, over-emotional and over-cautious, having emotional neediness or unrealistic expectations, being naive, immature and girlish, lack of will power and lack of self worth. scary, I know. But when used correctly it represents an unconditional and romantic love, compassion and understanding, nurturing, romance, warmth, hope, calming, sweetness, naiveté, being feminine and intuitive energy.

LETS me show you how easy it is to incorporate pink into our daily lives.

PINK COATS are probably the easiest way to dress up your winter wardrobe. so simple and so fun!




HEAD TO TOE PINK is also pretty cool for the more daring. be carefull though, the darker the shade of pink, the more it gets associated with eroticm. that is NOT the look we are trying to achieve. also keep your make up simple and try to break the loudness of the pink by adding neutral colours in solid textures as a base for the outfit.



DECOR! I'm gaga over pink things in the home. in this case subtlety goes a long way. too much pink ends up being tacky. it could all go really wrong really fast! it's all about balance.


 I DIE FOR THESE DOORS!





I KNOW that at first glance pink is a daunting colour to wear especially for anyone over the age of 10, but its fashion's favourite colour so maybe instead of running away from it, we should all embrace it because it doesn't look like its going away. remember small doses though, I personally don't want to go around looking like a poorer version of  Nicki Minaj circa her over sized barbie faze.


BYE SMEARS!!!

YELLOW SUBMARINE

HI SMEARS!!!


ITS BEEN forever and a lifetime! missed you all, hope you are doing just fine in this Topsy-turfy world of fashion. I'm guilty of constantly telling you guys that I've got big plans and little secrets that I can't wait to share with you guys and never actually letting you in. today is the day I can finally share what SOME of these plans are.

I HAVE joined forces with two of my fave local bloggers, Thato and Tumie, to promote local brands. and for the very first brand we chose IDL fashions which is a boutique located at Game City and Riverwalk malls. people have a misconception about boutiques, that they are very upmarket and don't cater for different styles, but we are here to prove you wrong. I received this yellow top from IDL and styled it in a way that I think best represents who I am and what I love. Also check out my fellow team members' posts on their respective blogs as well.

ENJOY!!!





I wore the yellow top with my newest favourite thing in the world, my destroyed denim dungarees! they are so cute and quirky which is the direction I wanted to take the outfit in. for extra quirk I added my jelly shoes and the little feathered hat. the beaded drop earrings added an Afro-eccentric vibe.







IDL fashions is shop 6 at Riverwalk at F7 at Game City. they have a wide range of clothes which fit any personality and any mood.. can't wait to share more. don't forget to like their facebook page IDL Fashions and follow them on Instagram @IdlFashions. for updates on more posts and plans, don't forget to like my page and follow me on Instagram as well @5inch_neon.
TILL next time because there's always a next time...God bless, and stay slaying!
