  • Hi.. I'm Linda Otiende; a Personal Style Blogger. I think fashion and style is all about creativity; playing around with what you have to create something unique and stylish out of it. Blogging about my personal style is an interest I developed about three years ago when I discovered that as ladies, we really go to certain extremes to look good. Yes, we gotta look good but at the end of the day that does not mean that we have to wear the most expensive clothes or shoes to be stylish. You can actually work it out in the cheapest of them yet still ooze class! So welcome to my blog where I will get to show you my personal style and how I manage to look good on a budget. I do hope you enjoy.

    The black dress is a timeless classical piece. Whether in maxi, midi or mini, the black dress is perfect for any body shape. And I like the fact that black is no longer associated with funerals. We are now seeing it on the red carpet and even in our weddings. For those of you who saw Annabel Onyango's wedding you must admit that it was out of this world. The all black wedding was one of a kind and the ladies most definitely dressed up for the occasion. 

    At the end of the day, no matter the look, black will always denote class, sophistication and elegance. And the good thing is that once you own a black dress you can rock it in whatever way you want; Casual by throwing in a sweater like I did, to the Office by throwing in a fitting blazer, to a Wedding by wearing bold jewelry and statement heels or even as an Evening wear by adding embellished accessories.

    Good morning? Thank you so much for the amazing feedback from my last post. And for all of you who've been voting for me to get to the top 6 in the MIMI Blogger Contest, I am more than grateful. Be blessed.

    So today's post is basically a replica of my last post only that I decided to try colour blocking by putting on a green pencil skirt. The idea of mixing green and blue has never crossed my mind before but judging from today's post, I think it does really look awesome...what do you think?

    I don't think there is ever a wrong time for a polka dot..Marc Jacobs 

    Yes!You heard it right. From the red carpet, to dinner, to the office..the polka dot trend most definitely works for any occasion and there is absolutely no wrong timing for it. Ladies this one obviously counts as another wardrobe staple.

    Polka dots are fun to play around with and I especially love how fashion rules have been broken and ladies nowadays are putting on patterned outfits on dots. Despite the fact that such an outfit would look overcrowded, the most amazing thing is that the outcome is sophistication and class. This is actually one main reason I enjoy fashion blogging..the idea of just putting aside trends and working with what you have and style is eventually what you make out of it...Awesome..isn't it?

    ION: I am one of the top 15 bloggers who have made it to the nomination round for the MIMI FASHION BLOGGER CONTEST. The top 6 bloggers in the nomination round with the most total likes, comments and shares gets to move on to the final stage of the competition.

    It is quite interesting how trends that were there in the past always make a comeback and adopt new names. Say for example the crop top, which most of us are quite familiar with as the tumbo cut. The crop top is most definitely a trend that can look very classy if worn right. And if you have to wear one ladies, kindly work on your tummy or go for high waist pants or skirts.

    Enjoy today's post and have a blessed week full of God's favour.
    Yours LindasWorldofStyle:-)

    Happy New Month dear readers..:-)

    Today's post is all about handbags and I will be showing you 5 types of handbags a lady shouldn't miss in her closet. You don't want to be spotted carrying the same bag to a wedding, to the office, to church, for a night out..

    1. The Evening Clutch
    Who wants to be seen carrying a big bag when you are dressed up in that dazzling sequin dress to meet your date..? Definitely not me. All you need for the evening is a small box clutch that will be a perfect fit for your phone and your lipstick. Yes..you don't need big bags for such occasions.

    Get a similar clutch from Duka-Kwa-Boot

    2. The Day Clutch/Envelope Clutch
    Whoever said clutches are just meant for weddings and dinner events got it all wrong. Who said you can't carry a clutch for a day out with your friends, a hands-free shopping day to the City Center or even to church? Or even to a wedding? These days clutches come large and ready to accommodate a wallet, a phone, charger, earphones, lipstick, wipes and even a book; all these in just one clutch..!Yes it is possible. So get yourself one..!

    3. The Tote
    This type of bag is a must have for every woman. Now ladies this is obviously the time to carry everything, like literally everything; from your water bottle, to your extra pair of shoes, to your wallet, your make up bag, umbrella, book, extra pair of clothes for impromptu sleepovers, a snack, a shawl, your phone, its charger and power bank, laptop..yes it can accommodate literally everything and that is why you ought to own one.


    4. The Sling Bag
    This is perfect when you feel like you don’t have to carry a lot of stuff with you, just your keys, phone and wallet. They are perfect for casual day outfits.

    5. The Everyday Bag
    The most basic building block of your bag collection should be a simple style; smart enough for work but chic enough to make your most fashionable friend grin with approval. Before investing in one, consider your daily load, and make sure you pick a style that can accommodate it.


    You can order a similar bag in grey and blue.

    So ladies there is absolutely no excuse for carrying the same bag everywhere you go..you need a bunch but if there has to be a limit, let it be five.
    Hope you enjoyed..:-)

    Till next time,
    Yours
