  • 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.

    Hi *waves in excitement*

    I know I've been MIA but guess what?Am back! I haven't been in good health for the past few weeks but am currently on medication and hopefully I will be back to frequent blogging. I want to believe you are all keeping well despite this cold weather which am really hoping will come to a halt come January. 

     The year is coming to a close and we all are looking forward to the festive season; a time to make merry with our loved ones. However many of us actually forget to take this time to also give back to the society as a way of telling God that you are grateful for the blessings He continues to bestow upon you. For many of us waking up in good health is just but a routine yet what you don't realize is that someone else is fighting for their life in hospital; another is sleeping hungry in the cold but you on the other hand are in good health and you have never lacked. So I challenge you today to always make it a habit to pray and be thankful to God at all times.

    Back to my post for today, we are talking pleats; which obviously takes most of you back to your primary/high school days when pleats used to be part of your school uniform. Then, if you gave me a pleated dress or skirt am not so sure I'd wear it but come 2015 I most definitely would rock it! Pleats are gracing our fashion shows and red carpets and I just love how feminine they make a lady look. 

    For today's look I decided to go with a maxi pleated dress courtesy of my mum. Enjoy today's post, leave a comment; its always my joy reading them and have yourselves an awesome week ahead.

    Yours, 
    Linda's World of Style.

    What do I wear to the interview? This is a question millions of people around the world think over when planning to go for an interview. The way you dress to a job interview makes a huge statement about yourself before you even open your mouth. 

    Whether you know it or not, your appearance is the first thing people notice about you. Its said that first impressions are usually formed within the first 30 seconds.

    In an interview, dressing professionally demonstrates respect and also shows your potential employer that you are taking the interview seriously. It can also boost your own self-confidence during the interview

    Gee, a blogger that owns learnershipsa.com, has created this info graphic titled "7 Dressing Mistakes That Can Sabotage Your Job Interview" that gives practical tips on what NOT to wear for your next job interview. This guide should help you enhance your job interview in the future.

    Its only in Kenya where you can actually experience the pleasure of having three seasons in a day. You wake up in the morning and its cold, by the time its lunchtime you are already sweating but then again when it gets to evening you are actually glad that you carried your trench coat with you. Very confusing if you ask me.

    In other news, Happy New Month...

    So  today's post is all about long coats. The long coat is a great way to keep warm yet at the same time make a fashion statement especially when worn with heels. Can you imagine that I actually got mine from Gikomba for just 200Kshs(2 Dollars)? Awesome, isn't it?And what I love most about it is that it provides just the perfect cover up. I don't see any reason why you shouldn't be owning one.

    Enjoy today's post and have a lovely week ahead.

    Yours, 
    Linda's World of Style.
