Midi Body Con Dresses: Victoria Beckham Designs

Midi dresses and skirts are currently a hot trend. I must say I must have come of age for I am absolutely loving the midi trend. I am back in school and also rethinking going back to an office job so my wardrobe is taking a slight twist hence my interest in body con midi dresses. I love the fact that more and more of my peers are embracing femininity more so in the work place. The hemlines are definitely coming down yet women are still dressing stylishly just opting for modest cuts.

The one celebrity that stands out when it comes to the midi dress is Victoria Beckham both as a designer and as a style icon for this trend. Posh spice has never impressed me much of all the spice girls but as a designer she has definitely proved herself with each season producing outfits on the runway that are impeccable, stylish and loved by many fellow celebrities.  I have mad respect for posh's hustle as she wears her own dresses which as will be shown below are equally popular among celebs.

Victoria Beckham Dresses on the runway. I love how well they've been accessorized and can work for both work and play.

Eva Longoria rocked this dress much better than Posh Spice! Curves are a treasure my people!

So smart!

Casing Karura Forest Park

With this new year, perhaps this blog will see more glimpses of my life even as I do my usual style posts. My friends and I love doing different social activities and they refer to me as their social secretary :-) In any case I've been meaning to visit the nearby Karura forest but for one reason or another always found an excuse not to go. Last week I managed to persuade my friends that we could do a picnic while we case out the place and what an amazing thing that turned to be! The place is really beautiful and has several activities that one can participate in whether as an individual, couple, family with kids or a larger group.

Below are a few images of the place and my friends who I must say all have different styles. It was a Sunday afternoon so we all met after our various Sunday activities.

This was my outfit of choice and I must say it served me well! The moccasins are my new favourite pair of shoes!

As I said my friends all have different styles and it all works. I really loved the shoes with bling and print that they each chose.

I love this shot! The sun's rays , the trees and our silhouettes.
My friend laughing her head off with the waterfalls in the background :-)
I discovered this bench at the foot of the waterfall. It's perfect  for reading or just sitting in silence.
My friend calls herself a tree hugger! So while we were busy taking selfies she was busy appreciating nature. I  also love this shot
This one of my favourite looks for the day! She rocked the dress and converse so well! The waterfall background doesn't hurt either
Loved the pose! The playfulness and joy.

This is my favourite image as it evokes such a sense of wellbeing!

Celebrity Style Watch : NENE LEAKES

Nene Leakes definitely has an unforgettable personality and probably why she is a favourite of millions. Nene Leakes has risen up the ladders from those uber ratchet days of season one Real Housewives of Atlanta.  As the money has continued to roll in so has her fashion style improved thanks to the help of Fashion Stylist Shun Melson assisted with Ryan Christopher.

I just finished watching I dream of Nene the wedding and I must say it really inspired this post. There were several pieces  that Nene wore that really impressed me, more so the street casual looks. I am so jealous of her new hair! I am still trying to see how I can rock some silver blond hair.

Nene Leakes has definitely come of age fashion wise and below are a few looks that caught my eye:

Simple and elegant!

The tailored white blazer, black mixed leather skinny pants and heels are on Point!!!!!!!

That off shoulder sweatshirt is so on my shopping list!

Cynthia Bailey whom I LOVE! steals Nene's thunder in her Gold outfit.

This look is so rad! I must pull it off soon
