Fashionably Boy-X-Girl: Jeans

Can things go fashionably wrong? Absolutely yes. But the jeans touch can make it go fashionably right. This brings me to my newest fashion term; The jeans power. Both Max and I believe that torn jeans are a great addition to your wardrobe, because your  fashion narrative changes and your style takes different dimension altogether.

Planning a shoot takes a lot of administration: Find a photographer; Wake up on time; Get a hairstyle; Get a shoot location; All these FAILED for two weeks. Basically, all went fashionably wrong, however, things eventually took a fashionably right turn. Flexibility in all you do matters and absolutely translates to your fashion sense, and most especially if it is an outfit that lets you be flexible like jeans.

Boyish jean top

I have developed a love for boyish fashion items that I can rock comfortably. Consequently, I decided to rock my nephew’s jean top, and oh boy am I not glad I took this jean top that was lying in his suitcase. Additionally, Max’s jacket given the right colour of jean shorts or pants would be an amazing look if rocked by a girl. Bottom line is, we can rock that boy jean just by putting it together with the correct jean touch.


Torn Jeans

Max’s point of view : Torn jeans have always been an fashion area where I did not feel comfortable. I’ve always seen myself as the the guy who keeps everything “clean” but I have discovered that there is an art in the design and cut of torn jeans that still give you a clean look with an element of Kanye.  I buy my jeans and then play with the scissors to scalp my own design of “chaos”.

A girl can absolutely mash up a guy’s jeans, and the guy can end up complimenting the girl, like Max (https://www.instagram.com/max_coza/) did.


The Jean Skirt & Shirt
A jean skirt and jean top is  an absolute new fashion venture for me. Buying this skirt was a tick on the fashion bucket list and little did I know that it would be a favourite of many. Guess we all have that one closet item we buy but don’t realise its importance. Max’s jean outfit was an absolute compliment to this outfit. A fashion tip for you and your boyfriend when going on a date; get your man to match up to your taste.
The jean top that can be worn in more than one way. My 2019 fashion is aiming at helping us see just how creative we can be our fashion sense. In order to see how I achieved this two stylish looks for my jean shirt:  https://youtu.be/YZSLjSR_szU.

A Closet Of Mixed Ideas

The simplest explanation of “A Closet of Mixed Ideas” : We all have those pieces of clothing we want to rock differently in order to get away with cheap fashion. Well, this is what I always advocate for, and absolutely look for in any fashion item I buy. Remember, the idea is to have an affordable closet; You can manage to look all sorts of amazing and appear to have the richest closet by living within your means.

There are totally different ways to rock one clothe in your closet and make it look absolutely different. One of the many closet ideas we have are tied down to the shoes we wear, the jewellery and clutches/bags we rock an outfit with, and did I mention, our hair. Your biggest asset in mashing up your look is your hair, so run with it.

The one trick in the fashion world is to have outfits that have different colours. This is simply because you can manipulate them by matching them up with different coloured shoes and jewellery. Clothes that have an African-print touch never fail you on this aspect because they give you the fashion freedom you desire.

Another trick is to have that one coloured outfit that you can absolutely rock with different types and colours of shoes. My recent realization in this aspect has been sky-blue and white clothes.

Hope this small passage gives you tips on some of the important hacks of the fashion world. Remember:

My Type of Flawless

Category : Beauty , Fashion

Ladies we all know that the most important part of our fashion is our FACE. It is the first thing we check when we look in the mirror after dressing up and immediately before we step out of the house. The most important self-love and care we can show ourselves is ensuring our faces look as flawless and stunning as possible.

I have always battled with pimples that leave spots on my face. This happens just before my menstrual periods, I call it ‘the red sign’. Early in July I had the worst break out ever, I was uncomfortable in my skin and had to put on make-up to hide the blemishes. I had my hair all up in my face just to cover my cheeks which were the most affected.

I have tried using home-made products, and these seem to work for a while then I am back to the struggle; sometimes the situation gets worse. I started using Pond’s New Flawless Radiance Derma + just three weeks ago and the change has been impressively dramatic.

My Routine


Morning & Evening Treat

Micellar water: I use Dove cotton pads as they are soft on my skin. This ensures that sweat from the previous night is completely removed from my face. In the evening, whether I had make up or not, I use this product to remove the accumulated dirt on my face. I then wash my face with Protex Deep Clean soap, which I have realized works for me.

Perfecting Serum: I add just a bit of this product onto my face. Day/Night Cream: Finally, I use either the day or night cream depending on the time of the day.

Benefits


Micellar water: Cleanses the skin and removes make-up and is suitable for face, eyes and lips. This product has made it is so easy for me to remove my lipstick when I get home.

Perfecting Serum: Targets multiple skin damage. I can attest to this as I have seen positive results on my face in just 3 weeks.

Day Cream: I am currently using the Mattifying Day Cream SPF 15 which is good for normal to oily skin.  My face remains normal all day long despite the fact that I have an oily face, especially my nose area.

Night Cream: I have not looked forward to the night as I have since I started using this product. My skin feels absolutely gentle and nourished after using this product. It has really proven to have the deep skin overnight repair effect on my face.

I strongly believe in sharing products that work for me, not just for the sake of marketing but because I believe in it. This is why I have shared my experience with you in these make-up free pictures. (Check out my progress in the next post).

I advise you track your progress should you wish to use these products. The price is affordable and they last long. For more reviews on this product check: http://www.beautybulletin.com/face-and-body/eye-creamsserums/pond-s-flawless-radiance-derma-perfecting-serum
