One of my favourite things about blogging is my interaction with people from around the world. I only just realised that it was coming to the end of the month in like a couple days and I had not had a guest blogger on the blog.
This month we have the gorgeous Mulesa from Durban, South Africa as our guest blogger – yeah yeah! Lets see what she had to say…
How would you describe your personal style? Simple, sophisticated, afro-chic. When it comes to fashion, I like comfort and minimum fuss. I’m all about simplicity with a touch of elegance and class.
What is you go to outfit? A mini-dress, fitted blazer, a pair of comfortable wedges and statement earrings. I’ll swap my pumps with a pair of black heels to take the look from daytime to evening.
What inspires your style? Anything and everything around me. I don’t really have one particular source of inspiration. I follow fashion trends that appeal to me but always try to put my own little spin on things. I’m drawn to interesting shapes, bright colours and bold prints particularly African-inspired designs like chitenge and kente cloth. My mum is also a source of inspiration for my fashion because she is incredibly stylish and fashion-forward
Your nice and chatty, tell us five things you would like the world to know about you.
- I have a Bachelor of Laws degree from the University of Cape Town. I’m obsessed with earrings – I literally feel naked if I leave the house without any earrings on! Most of my shopping budget is spent on earrings but do make a few of my own.
- I can speak French, Afrikaans and Bemba.
- I rarely go shopping for clothes. My mum is a fashion designer and her label is called Ethnique-Afrika designs by Chimba Lumina. So many of my clothes and shoes are either bought from abroad by my father or made by my mother (including some of the clothes I used for the shoot.)
- I’ve kept my hair natural for about 4 years now. It’s definitely high maintenance but I’m really glad I’ve made the transition. Initially it was difficult to adjust but I’m finding it increasingly easier to manage. #teamnatural all the way.
