  • 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.

    There is no better way to make a fashion statement than in a sleeveless coat and this trend looks like is here to stay. What's even best is that it can be worn in any kind of weather; cold or hot season. Just depends on how you wear it; for a cold day you can wear it with a  sweater underneath and when its warm wear it with a sleeveless top/dress and you are good to go..!

    For my look today I decided to wear it with a jumpsuit.
    Enjoy.

    Yours, 
    Linda's World of Style.

    Forget the maxi dress when it comes to comfort. Jumpsuits are the perfect alternative. Very comfortable and stylish and can be worn anywhere; just find your perfect fit and you are good to go.

    For today's look I went for a patterned jumpsuit. Do enjoy today's post and have a blessed week.

    The sun is out and there is no better way to step out than in a crop top. Crop tops are taking the fashion world by storm and I like how they come in different designs; long-sleeved, no sleeves, loose-fitting, fitting, criss-cross, laced etc Ladies do not be worried about showing skin if you are the conservative type; you can go for high waist pencil skirts or midis or even pants and still slay so I suggest you take the risk and invest in one. Very affordable if you ask me and thou shall not worry about your body type; there is something for all of you and if you wanna know what type will suit you, you can visit the following link youbeauty for more.

    So for my look today I decided to pair my crop top with a maxi. Do enjoy today's post and thank you so much for the amazing feedback from my last post. I appreciate.

    Yours,

    Happy New Year...

    So glad to be back. How is your 2016 so far? Mine is off to a great start and am hoping to accomplish so much this year. Personally I don't believe in resolutions, I just have goals that I have set and I plan to work hard towards achieving them. 

    To start us off, I decided to do a lipstick review; something I've never done before. For quite a while, I have been the lipbalm/gloss kinda girl and each time I saw a lady rock lipstick I was like I wish I had the guts to do so. I always felt as if I never looked good but truth is I just wasn't buying the right colors for my complexion. 1 year down the line, all thanks to my mum who always insists that a lady should wear lipstick, am slowly catching up.

    And with that I will show you my current favorites. Feel free to also share with me what your favorites are and I will be glad to try some of them.

    Being a starter, am currently just rocking two colors; brown(light, dark and nude) and red(in different shades) so my first lot are these different shades of brown from different brands..

     1.Revlon Coffee Bean #300
    2. Revlon Pearl #205 
    Purchased from KQ Duty Free

     3. Milani Minerals #4 
    I however don't wear this one quite often as it is too dark for me.

    Got this one recently from Dubai.
