I have a faint recollection of this tv show that used to come on when I was a kid. I just remember being perched up on the pouf in the sitting room watching it after news. The cast used to wear so much colour and it was shot on a stage(I have come to know that such shows are called sketch shows) and was funny as heck. Anyone remember ‘In Living Colour’ ? Well,if you can’t remember it,you’re too young to be reading this blog…Kidding! Please don’t go…
This is me channeling that show.Orange retro blazer,ankara bandeau top,tulle skirt, light blue pointed pumps and box braids. The sling bags were also in vogue back then.I recall because I used to hear stories about how you could enter a Kenya Bus with a handbag and get out of it with nothing but the straps…Those muggers used to cut the straps off and take the bag ! And because the bus has like 10 million people,you realise when it’s too late. 😀 So,pretty much,the 90’s called…They want their clothes back. 😀
This is my challenge to you. Both guys and girls :
I want you to style a retro-inspired look.Think 90’s. Think oversize blazers,suspenders,acid wash jeans, high waist pants,retro print shirts,crop tops…Be creative. Show me what you got. Take your best photo and send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by 26th of January. Tell me who you are and where you come from . Photo must be at least 1MB OR it must be clear,no fuziness or blur . I’ll take the coolest looks and post them on my website.
All the best.
