I have been in such a holiday mood the whole week, every day feels like a Friday, I have also been wearing a lot of colours too lately...'tis the season after all!! joy to the world!!
Last weekend my office threw an end of the year staff party at Coral beach on the garden...let me tell you these heels were not meant for walking on grass, I almost broke my flippin' ankles on the uneven soggy ground, plus my stilletos got chipped, we were so wobbly that almost every girl in heels tripped on grass, it was very funny really I had to lean on someone to cross the grass LOL, anyways it was blast and we had so much fun, we even had an after party dancing the night away at Mafian! and plus guess who won best dressed female staff!? yeaaah babies that's right yours trully meee!! :D granted everyone looked fabulous and I was deeply flattered to win my new west point dry iron :D which is quite handy since I now don't have to queue with the rest of the fam in the morning much to their relief LOL...
This is what I wore to the party...a whole lotta shiny gold!!...hence the tittle...the Midas touch...in reference to king Midas who loved gold so much that he wished everything he touched would turn to gold am assuming you read story books when you were a kid here, and if you didn't do a quick google search LOL...Gold it's also my favourite colour tone and metal, next to black. now what does one wear to an office party!? since it's my first party here I had to ask around to know what's the dress code like, the card said "dress to Impress" but what does that mean really? so after I got an idea of what people usually wear I picked this outfit. I stuck to my signature pencil skirts, blazer and sky high heels, kept the look formal but not too formal, fun, chic with a hint of sexy...I'm crazy in love with this little peplum skirt from Mr.Price, I saw one of my BBM friends wearing it and I fell in love and when I asked her I couldn't believe that it's from Mr.Price and went there last week and luckily found it in my size. I wore my Lipsy silk gold corset top that I got from Bongo shopaholic, my metallic gold belt from Tandika (I loooove it! got it for TZS 1,500/- say bargain!!!), my cocktail ring (old) and earrings (still available) are also from Mr.Price, My envelope clutch is Atmosphere from sassy and classy (a BBM store) but you can get an almost similar bag in pu-leather at Viatuzi (mine is velvet and it's sold out) and you already know these shoes from Zara I blogged about them HERE, I love wrapping a blazer on my shoulder like that, I feel very chic when I do that like am in the streets of paris heading to some runway show or something LOL, the gold blazer is from MARENE makumbusho.
