That business look

_DSC2801

Choosing the right suit and using accessories around it shouldn’t be a rocket science when you know the basic rules of looking dapper. A business suit is by far the most important and most utilised suit for movers and shakers in the city. You only have to pop round to the squire mile or canary wharf in London during peak hours too see a sea of men donning business suits. Financial advisors, bankers, IT consultants and marketing executives all wearing business suits to look the part.

For any stylish individual, colour, fabric, and fit are just a few things to be taken into consideration when investing in a business suit. From the boardroom to a shared office space, you want to leave a great impression on the minds of those around you. Whilst most of what happens in these environments may be out of your control, how you look in that suit shouldn’t be one of them. In fact if there is one thing that should be totally in your control, it is your look. Continue reading That business look

Title is still work in progress: all suggestions welcome!

Quite laterally, I cannot settle for a name for this article as my mind keeps pushing and pulling me back and forth on different ideas. Seventies look with a modern twist, a story of brown on navy, or simply settle for the re-emergence of the turtleneck? At best none of those titles even come close to telling the full story and at worst, well they just don’t make sense by themselves.

You know what, I’m just going to carry on describing the look and leave you all to come up with Continue reading Title is still work in progress: all suggestions welcome!

Beauty and Brains – Three cheers for success!

Before i go any further, i just want to advise you in advance that this post is very personal. Thought i would take a little break from the usual and celebrate the success of my sister and model, Jennifer for not only completing her masters degree but also in outshining everyone in her course! This beauty and brains was able to do us all proud by completing, with distinction, which warranted a prize as she was the only student to achieve such a feat.

It was a beautiful moment for the entire family to hear her name called up on that stage and see her confidently walk across to collect her degree.

If there is one person that deserved a distinction, it would be Jennifer, she burned the midnight oil night after night persevering for her dream. If i am completely honest, this came as no surprise to the family as this young woman has a history of doing very well academically. However, one never gets used to that amazing feeling you get when you see your sister souring and reaching her full potential.

Anyway, let me not bore you with a lengthy article. Please help me in congratulating Jennifer on applying herself diligently with one of many gifts given to her by God.

Oh and please forgive me for the image quality. I struggled with the lens i used on that day.

Once again, well done Jennifer. Many congratulations to you and your friends!

This article is the last of the three-part series I started some weeks ago called “Sunday best”. If you missed the first two, may I encourage you to go back and read first one here and  then the second here so the whole piece makes more sense.

Last week, I did a short video piece for a car company (which I hope to share with you all when it comes out) and one of the questions I was asked was “what does style mean to you?”. This question is not unusual to me as a style blogger but for the first time, I was forced to think deeper what style means to me as I face the camera to give my take on this. I gave my usual answer which is that my style is a way of bringing out some of what’s on the inside for the world to see.

My style is purposeful and is driven by some of my character traits and evidently subtly challenges everyone around on how I wish to be addressed and related to without me having to say a word. This peaked the curiosity of my interviewer as his eyes narrowed and gently nodded in affirmation as if to say “I have not heard anyone put it this way before so please tell me more”.

Before I knew it, I found myself talking about temples and their significance from a Christian perspective. A temple as I understand is a place of worship to God which automatically make one very important. A brick and mortar temple is distinctive and different when compared to other buildings. It is cared for and looked after very well by cleaning and decorating it beautifully as is evident with cathedrals. The physical structure of a temple is big, bold and has intricate details not usually found on other buildings. In other words, a temple is purposefully built with precision and care to such an extent that you don’t need to be told it is a temple. A temple stands out.

I guess you know what I am going to say next right? Yep, I compared my style to the temple scenario. In fact, Continue reading Sunday best – 3
