Little Orange Dress


Ouf! Today was the last day of school and the beginning of the Xmas holidays for the kids. No more waking up super early for weeks but then with two kids under my care 24/7 for three weeks, I might go crazy. Anyway, I had another Xmas lunch today so here is what I wore:



Beret - Cial
Coat - Thrifted
Cardigan - Uniqlo
Dress - Uniqlo
Leggings/ Pants - A'gaci
Boots - A'gaci
Accessories - H&M, Tsutsumi, gifted


Let's talk about this coat. I have been looking for a camel cape coat for a long time in Japan without any real success. Last Spring on a trip to Houston, I saw this one at a Goodwill center. I tried it on but I did not like it. However I decided to get it in the meantime until I find what I was looking for. However since the temperatures dropped, I have been wearing this thing, and now I am in love! The funny thing is when I bought it, I remember thinking that it was such a "Japanese" coat. Meaning it was not a style of cape coat I would see in the US. This cut is very popular in Japan and Asia. And what do you know, yesterday on the bus, I saw a Japanese lady wearing the same exact coat.





You can't really see the front but it is a round neck empire waist dress

Now this dress is knocker. You say LBD, I say Little Orange dress. It is just perfect amid being too short but with some leggings, I will not flash anyone. I really wish I had this dress in every color. It really is the perfect dress.

Pardon the bags under my eyes but little sleep and smudged mascara will do that to you too
 

I do not have much else to add but to wish you Happy Holidays! I may or may not post again before Xmas but I am sending warm wishes in case I am off. Stay safe!!!

DIY/ DIM Laced up Ballet flats

Hello readers!

How are you?

Today I am bringing you yet another super easy Diy. It is not about clothes since I have been lazy to make something from scratch lately. Today is about the laced up flats that have been popping everywhere recently. I have been lusting over them for a while but I could not find them anywhere in Pune. I was about to give up when I saw some bloggers "diying" the shoes. It looked so easy that I decided to make them as well. For a while, I put my Diy on hold because I wanted pointed toe flats that I did not have in my closet. Or so I thought!

While going through my shoes the other day I found this pair of Trf Zara striped flats that I had for ages but barely wear. I decided that I would use these shoes.

If you also want to Diy the shoes, here is what to do:

1. You will need :
- a pair of flats, round toe or pointed toe would be fine ( but pointed look a tad more elegant I think)
- 2 to 3 yards of cord
- A heavy duty punch hole  ( mine was a normal one…

Blanche Neige (Snow White)

Growing up, I used to watch Disney Princess Movies. I also used to believe that someday my Prince Charming would come. Now, it is safe to say that after a failed relationship, I no longer believe in fairy tales. I no longer believe in love. I have love for people around me: my family, my friends Yet I have given up on Romantic Love. I know it exists but I am not sure it is for me. 
Now I hate fairy tales because they depict men as being charming, loving, caring, always there to save the day. Well, in real life most men are not. And I am not really blaming them because after all they are only human. I am not like Snow White or Aurora either. I am not beautiful, at least not the standard, I am not soft I do not speak in a lady like voice. I do not sing to or with animals, and I do not sacrifice myself to save who I love or take abuse with a smile. Well I used to. But not anymore.
I have locked my heart and threw away the key in the sea. Because I do not want to fall for someone again a…

A visit to the Musee des Civilisations Noires

Hello! Hello!

Happy New Year 2019! I hope you had a wonderful time with your family and your friends during the last days of 2018. I had a wonderful time with my entire family, but also attending weddings and parties with my colleagues and other friends.

But today, I will tell you all about the best day I had in 2019 so far. During the Winter break, I had decided to take my boys to  the new Museum that opened in December. It is called Museum of Black Civilizations. And I was very eager to check it out. I had called in advance to check the dates and the entrance fees. Turns out, the entrance is free all the month of January.

On January 3rd, I dragged the kids along. The Museum is located in downtown Dakar. It is right opposite the "Grand Théatre", near the soon to be open TER train final stop. We arrived there just before midday. The museum is big, and round in shape. It is very spacious inside, with big columns and high ceilings. The main colors are beige and brown. The exh…
