THE NEW KIND OF “COOL”

IMG_2728edited
With the new wave of cool- the unspoken minimalism, social media (instagram) visually cool rule, it’s so easy to lose yourself. It’s so easy to lose your own voice and follow other people’s own perspectives and (fashion) choices.

So, how do you free yourself from these false or unhelpful beliefs that the world throws at you and somehow become ingrained in the deepest recesses of your mind? As I took time off, I learnt that, everything is a self-portrait, so is fashion. I’ve come to realize and accept the fact that, I am colour. I am print vomit. I am more. I am not less. I am clashing personalities, a quirky sense of fashion and humor. I am an exaggeration in my fashion choices. I am not the new wave of suit and sneakers kind of girl. I am all in one and that’s okay. That’s okay by me.

So, when I woke up today, I felt a freeing feeling in the way that I respond to the world that deems being ‘less’ in fashion a thing. I will continue to dress my world, one hue at a time, two prints a day, with or without a nod from the world.

What I know for sure is, the world keeps changing its mind. Better create your own, solidify your identity, and be your “new kind of cool”- all ways, always.

Love.

AFROS and a tight crotch…

This past weekend, we GaTsh Fros, were invited to the 70’s, 80’s 90’s party at Gaborone International Convention Centre (GICC). Reminiscent of Saturday night fever, Shiny disco balls, this WAS the weekend for mixing and missing fashion with music.Why mix and match when you can mix and miss?

Nostalgia and memories took my place but I was ready to share myself. Besides, most of our memories and our childhood aren’t stored in photos, but in certain smells and textures of our clothes. I took off the modern layers. I went for a preppie, yuppie, punk-ish or rather a new waver look- ALL at once, but whatever. To validate everything, I didn’t even wash the Denim dress i had donned! From the store room onto my body.I affirmed the truth, that I am an 80’s baby with an 80’s scent. Insert *unembarrassed smile* 🙂

BYE BYE BERLIN

I had long made up my mind, but Waiting is painful. What I know is Passion makes you do things. Working towards your ultimate dream is excruciating especially if your roots are tied to the “motherland”. It is time for Africa to live beyond the equator. Rub and blow your neurons together,rather than live and watch your intellect be sold back to you, in a box or through a piece of garment. You then, cry. Yes,Tears are words that need to be written. Write! Notice that, write and do are at equivalence here. Its time we SAY IT, AFRICA! We are kissed by the sun twice. We don’t sweat, we shimmer. NOW SHIMMER! Berlin, i left you because i had to go elsewhere. I will forever treasure your taste..Image

I captured you to taste you twice, in the moment and in retrospect.What if i told you I had quit it all before this trip to Berlin? Absence of pleasure,OF LAUGHTER in my life, stale dreams, wishing and restlessness. Going to the bus stop weighed me down. Being “South of the Equator” weighed me down. Felt like i was dead. And then this trip came.. YOU saved me. Thank you God. Thank you Berlin. You saved me.

till next time, because i got more.
