I'm thrilled to be back to share with you on this platform. I have been working tirelessly behind the scenes. I obtain so much pleasure in my work and sharing with you is the cherry on top.

I have found myself challenged to finish an outfit well and for that matter, owning a black sweater, or coat became a necessity. I know you have that one go to coat. Unfortunately, it doesn't always work. There is a wonderful event in town, you put on your gorgeous dress and you are ready to leave. The evening will definitely be chilly so you have to think ahead. Black jacket or coat and you realize it doesn't work. But it is too late, and what really matters is what you're wearing underneath the coat.

Black is not always the go to color. I turned my wardrobe around and filled it with vibrant blazers and coats. They have rescued me countless times. They give simple outfits a lift, and they are a wonderful way to dress up for outdoor events. Adding a pair of high heels will make you look like you put some effort where none was required. Flats will make you look effortlessly chic.

Having said that, here is a coat I designed. I featured Ms. Ciku Ndegwa on this post cause we were twining.  It's available in different colors. Meanwhile, the only means to order is by email but we shall make it available on our web shop soon.

  1. I like that inside sleeves is another color showing when u roll it up. And I love the simplicity of the whole jacket. I would like to order one, if possible! Heidi F
