The Kardashian sisters (plus their mum ) are a set of smart business women. OH YES, I was surfing through the web and I came across their new collection of nail polish, uhm. These gals are a branding power house, love them or hate them. I’m impressed.

Sometime ago, Perez Hilton dissed them about not having any talent, their mum defended them in the media saying they work 26 hours in a day.

Enough of the story, the gist here is they’ve teamed up with Nicole by OPI to create limited edition nail polish collection- this includes 14 shades, each named after the Kardashian/Jenner clan.

I love nail polish so for the love of nail polish(to emphasise on my love for these bottles of colour), I present to you Kardashian Kolors…..……………

I really don’t like Wednesdays, it’s just inbetween- Not close enough to weekend, yet it’s not the beginning of a fresh week.

I noticed one thing while in town today, I saw a lot of ladies in wedges- sandals, shoes, different types. One thing about wedges is they are they are the most comfy heels a woman could wear.

And this is in leopard print, how cool is that?

I love this one, the colour-sweet
I don’t like dis design so much but d colour will make a statement

You don’t have the heart for a 6 inch heel? Then wedge is your thing.
You want longer sexy legs but u r scared of tripping, try wedge. Yeah, I’m out of here-going to try on a pair of wedge I will wear tomorrow.

A few tips from Me to You, I got some from www.fashion.about.com

The best trend is no trend! Who cares what’s in the magazines and on TV? If you like what you wear and you wear it with a smile, you will set the trend! People will think you look great and go to you for fashion trends. Be spontaneous and always try something new.

When you are wearing a tight fitting shirt, wear loose pants, and when wearing loose pants, wear a tight shirt. Loose with loose makes you look sloppy, and tight on tight makes you look kinda trashy.

I think when you wear jeans, you should wear a cool shirt that makes ordinary jeans look good. You can also play up jeans with a good looking pair of shoes.

Always put on nail-polish; it looks great

These Sally Hansen Salon effects are great, colourful, fun way to polish your nails. I’m a nail polish junkie, u can tell from my pictures. (Check out older posts)

When wearing animal prints less is more! Do not dress in animal prints from head to toe!! Wear only one print and add a dramatic flair by accessorising right with a scarf, or even some fab shoes

 

Accessorize with animal print bag

Hey,

Since colours are so in, I put together some outfits that are bright enough to make us smile through the day. It’s Summer in most parts of the world. Here it’s almost always Summer, aint we lucky? Enough of my blabbing, lets get to the pictures.

 

I call this Summer's finest

 
There are 2 looks here:
1. A printed girly girl dress with belt, yellow hand bag and flats with sunglasses and colourful bracelets.
2. A pink blouse, pink ankle flats, pink neck wrap/piece and killer shorts (if you have got “the legs” ) or cargo pants (if you’re not comfy with the shorts). The shorts makes more sense though*wink*
 

ALDO wedges. Is that made from Ankara print or what? Yes, it is.

This wedges could also work with the shorts look.

This purse can also go with the dress and maybe heels for a more dressy occassion.

Here is a perfect dress for a tall woman

Fabmates,

I have some fashion tips here from Me to you.

Here they are.

Number 1 rule is *drum roll*- Know your body type. Yes, this is very important. If you have this all important information, all other things SHOULD follow easily, emphasis on “should” cos some people still don’t get it right even though they are aware of their body types.

1. Show off the trimmest parts of your body by combining a tight fitting piece with a loose fitting one.

2. The darker a print’s background, the slimmer the look.

3. A slim v- neck makes the neck appear longer and is  usually flattering.

4. It doesn’t matter if seperates don’t match exactly. Tonal variations are a creative alternative.

Lastly, there’s no excuse for panty lines!!! A thong is a girl’s best friend. Some ladies claim that thongs get stuck between their butts, then knickers(thin ones) is a good option in this case.

Let me get a few bites now, catch ya all later.
