I remember unpacking these babies a few months back in store when they had first arrived . I have to admit that working in retail gives me a good idea of what's 'in' for this season  and what will soon 'fade' in a ball of fashion cyberspace later.

Like remember that Neon polka dot jeans that you thought was so COOL last summer?


The first time I encountered the Monowedge it reminded me of that one item in your wardrobe that you wore once and regret you bought it a few months later down the line when the 14 day return policy has expired. Yes, I know, you could kick yourself in the face, hard. 

It might sound like I am on a rant here, but the Monowedge kind of remind me of people who cannot walk in heels (SORRY) or who finds it difficult.Not to worry, the Gods of fashion has created something that is not too high and not too low to walk in. Yeah sure, it is comfortable and you can run for the bus while its still on your feet without tripping, but my point is, is it here to stay?

I love trends and I think it is a fun way to play around and let your inner creative flourish, but then again I also want something that is geared up and here to stay. Could the same thing be said for Monowedge?

Hmm, do I see this trend as the new year begins? Yeah sure, for a few months. Then it will fade and you will kick yourself (again). 

The point I am trying to make is, when you purchase something, you need to ask yourself, will I and can I wear this again?  Regardless of trends and what's 'in' at the moment, will you be able and find ways to incorporate something like the Monowedge into your outfit again a few months down the line when it is no longer being unpacked by critical shop assistants (like me) ?

  HEY Stitched Readers! Le Blog was once again nominated for the Liebster award!Fatima- the blogger behind memrsme blog nominated me!

I enjoyed answering the questions! It allowed me to reflect a little on who I am and those sort of things. 

'Nuff said, Here we go:

1. What do you love about blogging?

Blogging has become a outlet for me to express my creativity. I love the fact that when I post something, my readers respond so well and positively to my thoughts. I also love attending launches and being the first to know what trend/s are going to be in next season and not forgetting, the perks of being a blogger are those amazing goody bags we receive.

2. What is your opinion about Hijab and Modest wear?

I absolutley love LOVE modest wear, although truth be told, I sometimes find it difficult to dress modestly. But when I do, I feel great. Covered but perfect. One day I hope to have a blog solely based on a modern Hijaabi. (Inshallah,God willing).

3. What is your favourite fashion trend of this year?

For this year, I LOVED the tribal and aztec prints that are available in stores, even in its minimal portions. Anything with a touch of print is something you will see me wear. For shoes i Love the heeled sandal which shows the sexiness of ones feet. LOVE it.  

4. Describe your fashion sense?

My fashion sense is a little bit of anything, any elements which is out there, assists me in making my decision on what to wear everyday. If I am feeling a little laid back for campus I would wear comfortable sneakers, skinny jeans and a hoodie. If I feel like I need to make a little more effort I would opt for a chino, a pretty heel or embellished pumps and a nude colored blouse to go with it. 

5. Heels or Flats?

(TOUGH DECISION) although it will depend, but HEELS it is.

6. The best advice you ever received?

LOVE wholeheartedly or don't love at all.
