  • 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.

    Online Shopping and Its Thrills

    While working on today's post, I just realized my whole outfit was purchased from Instagram except for my purse. It's about time I admitted to being an online shopping addict; Instagram shopping addict to be precise. But then again, should I really be feeling bad about this yet these Instagram thrift stores sell stuff for as low as a hundred bob? I mean? You literally save on the cost, energy and time you'd have otherwise spent on a trip to Gikomba or Toi market. So, No!I don't really feel guilty about it. And again, one way I deal with stress is shopping. So I'm not so sure that this addiction is ending anytime soon but they say the first step to overcoming an addiction is admitting that you actually have one. So hopefully now that I admit that I'm an addict of online shopping, then the next step will be to work on my spending habits.. 😊

    Can you imagine there are days I've even unfollowed my favorite thrift stores because I felt I was overspending then a few weeks later, follow them back again? SMH

     I would love to hear your thoughts in the comment section..Are you are an addict of shopping? (Whether online or just physically visiting a store?) How do you go about it so you don't end up impulse buying and you actually buy what you had budgeted for?

    1. For it is a fail most of the times...it's either it doesn't fit or the fabric of the clothes is disappointing...so am always skeptical and hesitant when it comes to online purchases...but if I would look that good am going to keep trying...

    2. Stunning, love the look and the location of your shoot. I'm a physical addict, I always try to pay my bills first so that by the time I go shopping I have less to spend and I'm forced to buy only what I need.
