Cry, the beloved country, for the unborn child that is the inheritor of our fear. Let him not love the earth too deeply. Let him not laugh too gladly when the water runs through his fingers, nor stand too silent when the setting sun makes red the veld with fire. Let him not be too moved when the birds of his land are singing, nor give too much of his heart to a mountain or a valley. For fear will rob him of all if he gives too much. Alan Paton 

Today's post is in form of a poem 

Ashes they say

Of course it is with a heavy heart I write this,
maybe it is a thing of movies or a screen adaptation
 of some news in far away land as my mind wonders.
And I say to myself maybe if it rains and thunders 
All this shall go away and be just that, a bad dream
 A market has burnt down to ashes, ashes they say. 

Maybe you too in dream land, one day could find peace.
What page in history mark our place
are we still bravely singing, wearing badges of patriotism. 
I swear though it all does not make sense to me 
all this even in all forms of narcissism.
 A market has burnt down to ashes, ashes they say.

As strange -eyed on lookers walk on by, 
There is no to reason why. 
As the earth that is dust, and to dust we shall all return, 
Hopelessness I feel, whatever hope is yours.
A market has burnt down to ashes, ashes they say.

As always, Stay Blessed.

Style Watch, Inspiration: Solange

"You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it." —Edith Head

Today will take a look at Solange, her love of fashion and let alone colour inspires. She has embraced print and colour,  I actually think yellow might be one of her favourite colors. Fearless in her approach to all things fashion, she knows her style very well.  

There is no need to break the bank (especially in this economy and knowing for a fact Kwacha is just that Kwacha) to be fashionable, let alone stylish. 
Lets take a look at how she owns her style below;  


There are colours I thought should never be worn together. But the more the fashion Gods endow me with fashion sense and wisdom of course! I am slowly coming to terms with the fact that fashion is an ever evolving art.
If you are not yet too sure of which colours to pick for your colour blocked ensemble. Start from the basics of the basics if that even makes sense, black and white, the Father and Mother of all colours.

Here Chiko pairs a white blazer with black pants and some detailed shoes.



Here Lubunga of KUSE pairs a cobalt blue peplum blouse with loud pink pants and look at that pink ribbon on the black shoes.

We have always loved denim, need we say much. A chunky chain definitely takes this outfit to another level. Shopping your closet should be your thing, the pink pants make me a good repeat offender. Which saves me money and the much needed closest space.
