  • 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.

    Finding Myself

    Recently as I was going through Elle's blog, I came across this post, "The Art of Being Me'' and I felt like it was meant for me. I don't know if this has happened to any of you, but have you been in a situation where you just feel so uninspired to do anything? You basically just lack the motivation to do anything. That has been me lately. I don't know if its school that has made me feel this way coz honestly speaking my Graduate studies has recently taken a heavy toll on me hence the hiatus on my blog lately. Whatever the reasons, I think situations like this are there for a reason so we take time to evaluate ourselves and seek God's guidance in everything and to let go and let God. 

    All in all, I hope you guyz are well. Can you imagine today's outfit cost me less than a 1000 Kshs (10 dollars)? The top was I think 200 Kshs (2 dollars) from an online thrift store and the skirt cost me like 500 Kshs (5 dollars). Such a steal, right? 

    Do enjoy today's post and have yourselves a lovely day and weekend ahead.

    1. I think i've used the words a thousand times..but you look lovely. I love that top.
      That part of being uninspired, it has been me when it comes to my Young World (www.theirsmallworld.com) blog. I try hard, but nothing.

    4. We all go through this Linda. The good thing though is that once you take the time to re-evaluate your situation, you can only come back refreshed and better. As for your studies, do your best and God will do the rest

    6. Ohhhh Linda.... You look so so stunning..... Thrift life is everything darling.... Those are surely the things I live for, I love the simplicity and sophistication in this ensemble.. Getting stuck (or rather) feeling stuck is a way of life, most of us, if not all, go through it at frequent times in our lives. I believe this is where your re-invention lies, and so it is very important to take as much time as you need, re-evaluate things and then in no time, you'll find your drive back with an even better vision of who and what your direction should be heading.... You are not alone darling.... Just breath and do what you can, when you can.... Hugs XX
