So there has been a big ruckus about Beyonce’s Countdown video and I thought that it was about time I watched it. And so I did…and boy was I pleasantly surprised. Surprised first by the moves she was doing with a pregnancy…*daaang*(work-a-holic) and secondly, surprised that the fashion in the video is something I have been wanting to try out for a while now 🙂
I reeeeally loved the bright colours they used like bright orange nails, the lime liquid eyeliner, the blue;red;green and yellow swimsuites, the black and whit round hat, the even brighter background (anyone who knows me knows I love colour)….I was in heaven. I absolutely adored the 90’s inspired outfits she chose, my fav being the baggy baby pink shirt, black bra and grey headscarf.
Another one of my favourites is the slouchy grey T and navy pleated skirt paired with the black stockings and white socks…Sooo lovely, it kinda reminded me of 21 jump street…I don’t know why…but hey.
Oh and how could I forget the nautical inspired one, the striped tank top and headscarf, short shorts and suspenders, this outfit was cute and fun, much like the video itself. another trend I noticed, introduced by Kourtney Kardash, is the sleek up do with a headscarf (or not). I think this hairstlye is classy and elegant and will definitely try out very soon. Here’s the fabulous video. Enjoy
Love, Pamela J
I was so excited when I heard that Florence Welch, of Florence and the machine, performed at Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel SS12 show!!! I love Flo because she is the ultimate performer and I adore Chanel, so when the two come together it’s like magic. This is the best coming together of music and fashion…and the sad part was I was no where near the venue….sigh.
Karl seemed inspired by the under sea coral reefs as the colours were coral and pastel and, as we all know, the venue was exquisite to say the least. the venue looked like an under water reef. Another interesting element was his use of flats, which I could wear anytime. He still kept to the classic Chanel look which will never go out of style. Over all Chanel never seems to disappoint
Hello my fashion forward readers!!
I know that it has been a very very long time since I last posted, and I have to express how much I have missed it because it has felt like something in my everyday life was missing. I have been so preoccupied by everything but Young Fashion Youth and it’s been rather lonely…to the least *trust*
So let me get you up to speed with what has been happening with me…
The most important thing, obviously, is my university education, which I have been trying very hard to focus on (no matter how many times I happen to procratinate in one day), but I guess you could say that the “sun always shines in sunnyville”. Going to campus everyday, especially in this ever changing Cape Town weather is a little tough on my Durbanite blood but I would like to think that I’m almost getting used to it……even if I still wear two jackets most of the time.
One thing that I’m really excited about is the Benefit Cosmetics shoot I will be doing soon. Benefit make up is absolutely cool, it’s really alot more young and fun compared to other brands such as L’oreal. Its really colourful and bold and really fun. I cant wait for that.
Love Pamela J…♥
