OOTD: Back to the Roots

African Skater Skirt Image

Say hello to my first outfit post in the month of April, and it is an ode to my African roots. This skater African print skirt was a gift from my mum. I wore it for the first time some days ago, and I got quite a lot of good compliments from so many people. I guess it caught so many eyes because it is a very colourful, different skirt, just what you need to see on a dull, gloomy day.

Outfit of the Day Image

Growing up, I wore quite a lot of pieces like this skirt. In fact, half of my wardrobe would consist of african printed skirts, trousers and dresses, and I loved it. You won’t see this skirt or anything like it on the high street, which makes it even more precious.

Every now and again, I will like to mix my African pieces with my regular pieces, and create a very different look, so keep reading Fashion and Style Police, a lot of fashion and style inspiration coming your way.

I found it incredibly easy to style this custom-made skirt. I love seeing lace paired with African prints, maybe because I have seen a lot of lace African outfits over the years. I think they complement each other perfectly so I went for the look, and I think it turned out great.

Designer Watches Wishlist

I am a watch lover. I think watches are great investment accessories, and I do tend to invest quite a bit in them, every now and again. Putting on a stylish watche is one of the easiest ways to take your outfit to the next level. Accessories do have the power to break or make any outfit, so I pay a lot of attention to mine. However, I haven’t bought a new watch in a while and I am currently lusting after quite few now. Come lust with me –


Must de Cartier Stainless Steel Ladies 1330



The jeweller of kings and the king of jewellers; Cartier, is on my designer watch wish list and why shouldn’t it be. I find the Cartier watches so sleek and sophisticated, and I love every piece I see. However, most of them are way above my budget, so I think I will be sticking to the preowned cartier watches, they are still pricey but a lot more affordable than the brand new pieces.

I am loving this Must de Cartier watch, I love the 18K yellow gold bracelet. It will be a great piece to wear this on very special occasions. I am very happy to know this Cartier watch and all the others on the Xupes website – home of luxury preowned watches, handbags, fine art, antiques and jewellery. I will be watching this wrist candy very closely.


Cartier Pasha Chronograph Stainless Steel/18k Rose Gold Ladies 3129


This is another Cartier watch I am loving at the moment. I adore the white rubber strap, stainless steel/18k rose gold case and big dial. It will look amazing worn with a casual outfit. I can picture it looking lovely with a pair of jeans and a white t-shirt. Do you agree?

TAG Heuer Carrera Cara Delevingne Titanium Ladies Watch

Tag Watch


This watch designed in collaboration with the supermodel; Cara Delevingne, is a beauty to behold I love the black strap and gold dial. It will look amazing worn with most pieces in my wardrobe. I would love to own this beauty.


Rolex Datejust Steel and 18ct Gold Automatic Ladies Watch

Rolex Watch

I am seriously lusting after this 18ct gold Rolex with fluted bezel. I think it is so beautiful and elegant. If I won a lottery, I will definitely be spoiling myself with this piece, I love it so much.
