I've been bitten by this crop top trend. I haven't seen one around that I like so I improvised and made myself one. My photos are incredibly blurry which makes me very sad. I dropped my new camera two days ago and its been malfuntioning since.  These pictures were taken with my phone, I'm happy with how I look but I apologise for the blur.

Two for one - Fall fatshionably into autumn with me

The idea behind this outfit was to combine Tuesday and Wednesday's outfit challange into one.
They were Dark Hues with a touch of gold for Tuesday.
Something African Print for Wednesday.
The amount of fun I had being in this outfit is crazy and I got some complements from the old folks I was working with in our QwaQwa offices, one woman told me I had given her flash backs of her trending in her twenties. Hahaha.

Fall fatshionably into autumn with black and white

It'sI was supposed to upload these pictures two nights ago on Monday, however I was extremely exhausted I decided to take a nap and wake up a little after 12 to upload but I only woke up at 4am just in time to get ready for work. Work itself was crazy yesterday, I left for QwaQwa a town in the Free State Province South Africa to for work purposes. That is a five hour drive from my city to this town and a 5 hour drive back which I made this morning a little after 11.
I only managed to snap the outfit pics from today(Wednesday) as yesterday was a complete write off. Pictures of today's outfit are to follow in the next post, in this post I hope you will enjoy looking at these houndstooth pants as much as I enjoyed wearing them.

Fall fatshionably into autumn with us

Hi ladies!
I recently discovered a new South African Plus Blogger,I cannot tell you how excited I was when I came across her blog. I am always excited to make new friends and to meet new people that have an interest in stuff I'm interested in, so I rushed to her "contact me" page got her e-mail address and sent her a proposal I had for a fashion collaboration. Nothing fancy, just two girls trying to brave the cool autumn weather as fatshionably as possible. So, please join us on this week long journey. We'll be uploading our looks daily under this "movement" we have decided to call Fatshionably falling into autumn.
Check out her blog at CurvyGirlStyleSA

The idea here is to dress up the chosen colors/trend for each day in your own unique way. The style trends/colors or choices are as follows;
In other news, follow me on instagram where I go by the name @missphookie, I love to follow back so do it to it!

SHORT SHORTING IT "#scbreakingalltherules"

So ... I love these shorts, I feel good in these shorts, my mom could not stand me in these shorts, she thought I was insane, in her own words she said I have no boundaries, hahaha!
 It really felt good to be in them and to "break fashion rules" as Alissa puts in on her blog, check it out and join the movement.


I paired this outfit with these sheer blackmail stockings, I was actually experimenting with them and ended up loving the overall combination.

As you can see, I'm rocking the sneaker wedge. This is a trend I could not pass up, comfort, warmth and cuteness all in ONE shoe?! I had to get me a pair!

The color purple

The colour purple is beautiful, I bought this dress two years ago for a friend's wedding and I must say it fit less snug around the hips and belly two years ago. Weight gain though art a heartless B!

I have this terrible habit of buying beautiful pieces for a particular occasion and feel bad if I wear that particular piece for any other event that is not as "glamorous" as the initial occasion it was bought for.
 For example, this dress was bought for a wedding, I would feel terribly bad if I were to wear it to drinks date or something. I'm weired like that.

I wore it to the Easter service on Friday as I realised that weight gain much like time waits for no man! I was glad to be at church, I go to Mount Zion African Methodist Episcopal Church and it is amazing!

I hope everyone had a blessed Easter weekend!

I absolutely love the ruching on this dress, its great to look at and is also a great secret weapon for ladies with a chubby belly, it masks a visible tummy.
