THE AFRICAN CHIC LADY

THE AFRICAN CHIC LADY

Hello September!

“Style is very personal…it has nothing to do with fashion. Fashion is over quickly…style is forever {Ralph Lauren}”

It’s a new month and I'm official back I hope that this month will be good.. Had a couple of personal issues in the past couple of months that’s why I’ve been late on doing posts.That aside,let’s get down to business. Will try and keep it short (I know you have lot’s to do)

As you recall I had launched a Kollection so here is the final piece of it.Recently I’ve become a more 'African print lady's; this outfit is completely suitable for all of your occasions. You can rock it in traditional weddings, red carpet (showing off the African in you), bridal showers or even weddings.

The yellow dress with red prints blended with blue sandals. As usual minimum accessories. This dress is very particular, it’s classy and sassy at the sometime (it’s quite hard to pull of such a look).As for my partner, he got a shirt with compliments of my attire (not doing the usual matchy matchy vibe).

What is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it {Yves Saint Laurent}”

These pieces are available…grab yours today!

BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL

BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL

“It’s a new era in fashion there are no rules…it’s all about the individual and personal style {Alexander McQueen}”

Finally I'm sharing the second piece…I know it’s been a minute but I was under the weather for sometime but I'm all good now…Time to get this show on the road. Feeling mushy about this piece damn gorge! This Fitting dress I like it mostly because its fabulous yeah and it has a detachable cap…which at this point can be used as a scarf like shown in the pictures. The bandage dress is comfy, that’s my number one priority.

I did some simple pair of heels and accessories to blend with my outfit…couples that are into marchy   marchy sort of would look elegant in this or even for a bridal party, I would definitely recommend.

Red carpet: yes! breaking the usual vibe of wearing dinner gowns to something more of new school if I may say…Ankara is the new “force to reckon with” try it out and mix it up with a few blending pieces.

Also parties such as birthdays, weddings, baby showers, traditional weddings or even that end year of party. Ankara has a way of expressing your African roots (proudly African) speaking more than actual words.

This outfit and more still to come in the next week…all personally designed by Cittificial Klothing (available in stores).

I choose to brand this piece bold and beautiful basically…The woman wearing is ’s bold its self explanatory. I'm celebrating women today, we're simply amazing, never forget to give yourself enough credit and most importantly a tap on the back. You’re awesome!

THE FIERCE WOMAN

THE FIERCE WOMAN

“Clothes aren’t going to change the world, the women who wear them will. {Anne Klein}”

Well I have been waiting to share this great news for sometime now. I partnered with one of my favorite brands in Kenya made by Kenyans (their designs are mind blowing).So today I launch a few pieces, specifically for me, I'm all about women and girl power. I want to celebrate the independent and fierce woman of today. And that’s why I'm branding this particular Collection “Fire and Ice with Kaytietela for Cittificial Klothing” .Will continue to unveil more pieces as we proceed.

My first piece will be the silk long gown with a touch of pink. This dress makes me feel some type of way. So fierce and elegant I could take over the world and assume my position as a super hero like wonder woman, perhaps!

This gown is custom made, meaning tailored to client’s satisfaction or like say “tailored with some labor of love”. I would wear this to the Grammy's, Oscars or locally at our annual BAKE, SOMA awards ceremonies (red carpet affairs), and end year parties. I did minimum accessories, you know me I love to keep the attention to a specific item I'm just like, let the dress speak for itself darling!

Some comfortable heels would do you justice and a clutch bag. And to the gents I didn’t forget you too. Like I say men fashion is evolving drastically, for my partner here a well tailored suit form Cittificial Klothing also a shirt with touch of pink to seal the deal. This look is a complete set since it compliments each other.

I’ve always thought of accessories as the exclamation point of a woman’s outfit. {Michael Kors}”

MY JOURNEY TO OWNING A 100 DRESSES: BLUE ME AWAY (01)

MY JOURNEY TO OWNING A 100 DRESSES: BLUE ME AWAY (01)

“Style is a way to say who you are without  having to speak {Rachel Zoe}”

Well it’s been a minute, took a break from blogging and social media platforms to focus and rejuvenate. Once in a while we all need our sanity even if this means breaking from the usual routine.Anyway enough of that “I’m back” I missed you guys did you miss me though yes? No? Too soon? Okayha-ha.

It's July and that means its our FIRST year anniversary. That was super fast. hard to imagine right?It’s a celebration and we truly appreciate the support shown towards us (kaytietela team is grateful). Moving on swiftly. Today I will be doing my July favorites (under my journey to owing 100 dresses 2017) and to kick it off is “BLUE ME AWAY” this dress is just “life”. Ladies trust me when I say you should own a sweta dress especially during this cold season. It’s not that heavy as opposed to a sweta (pullover/ jumpa) for that matter.

I paired my dress with a sleek green hand bag with some sparkle nude strap sandals. Okay, you might wondering, lady, why all these bold colors? As I say “the three rule colors ”. This I was taught by my brother while we were growing up so I took the advice and it works for me.Basically, it means one should not do more than three colors, and make sure your colors blend instead of mix and match (my opinion).

This outfit can be rocked in different ways, for me the weather and location plays a big role when it comes to outfits. See the off-shoulder I would wear it to a dinner, lunch-date, red carpet events, a cocktail party with the girls. The other way is the turtle neck it is warm so no need for sweta and can be rocked anywhere like the other style.

I opted for minimal accessories just the earrings with my hair on a bun (keep the attention on the dress). Well fitted dress, who doesn’t like them though?

If you’ve got any suggestions on what you would-like me to talk about or outfit? …leave it on the comment section below.

I CAME TO SLAY NOT PLAY-SLIT AFFAIR

I CAME TO SLAY NOT PLAY-SLIT AFFAIR (part 1)

Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way you live {GIANNI VERSACE}”

Well for some reason I can’t stop having this song on replay on my mind…especially the lyrics “and if I was the slit on your dress my goal in life would to aim for the highest”

Today I'm going to try to keep it as short as possible. I'm at the location for today’s shoot, and the sun definitely came out to play…and the wind, I can’t even explain. Right about now my makeup is too fresh thanks to Joan (friend and personal MUA). As my sister is trying to set up my hair, let’s begin.

It’s all about the SLIT it doesn’t really matter how long or short it is but whatmatters is how you wear it.

So I decided to rock a floral skirt with one of my favorite vintage white tops. HereI'm breaking from the obvious long slit dresses. Purple floral skirt pairing with some strappy blue sandals (I call them Kim Kardashian sandals).The colors are neutral since the whole idea of the outfit is the skirt. Try not to overdo your outfits since you want to focus your attention on one item.Always wear minimal accessories.

My skirt is actually more of an overlap, the slit is from top to bottom. This can be rocked at a red carpet event, the office (if you prefer skirts as officialattires to suits), lunch/dinner dates or just a chill girl's night out.

Feel free to drop your comments, ideasor suggestions below.

OLDSKOOL UPGRADE

THE OLDSKOOL UPGRADE

“Fashion has always been a repetition of ideas…but what makes it new is the way you put it together {Anonymous}”
This particular outfit has to be inspired by my childhood memories (sounds Cray Cray but yes) now back in the day while I was in my lower primary, my favorite class teacher used to have good taste when it came to matters fashion lol ,who thought I would get inspired by her? Huh! Anyway my love for stripped pants grew from there, fast forward to the current trend I decided to do some bit of upgrade.
The good thing about this high waist-pant you can rock them to the office, red carpet events, lunch/dinner dates with just the right and appropriate accessories and styling. So for this I paired it with a turtle neck white fitting top with an opening at the back and comfortable nude heels. Keeping in mind that my pants are well designed for my body shape…comfort is always and should always be your number priority (after all who doesn’t want an outfit that compliments your body perfectly)
I have tried this combo before and it works pretty well for me both at the office and on the street. Pairing with the nude heels is my way of not drawing the attention to none other than my pants and always keeping it neutral in relation to the color combinations.
P.S
This is my favorite selection so far if you got any additions you can always leave your suggestions down at the comment box with your name and email address.

thank you note

This is it....This is me...this is my thank you note!!

 

Today I'm writing to you my loyal readers...As I sip on my glass of red wine let's get to it shall we?

 

I'm going to let you in on my journey so far...It all started when people on social media and on real world applauding my style...little did they know that there was a force in me that wanted to share my tips not only locally but internationally.

 

Friends really encouraged me but I felt that I wasn't ready to take on the challenge at hand. So in the midst of all this something out of the ordinary happened... on my way to work a lady stopped me for a minute and told me how impressed she was by my style and how I had adorned my outfits...this was my final kick to get my passion started.

 

Having fashion blogs widely existing, I had to switch to something different; incorporating personal insights from your favorite celebrities (some that happen to be mutual role models) /street style and fashion bloggers. I wanted a blog that caters for both ladies and gents.

 

As I wrap up my piece, 2016 has been a great year overall and 2017 is going to be greater, so many things I want to share with you my readers and also introduce lots more.

 

A big thank you to the Lord, my Website Manager, Chief Article Editor, and Photographers I have worked with, My Make-up Artist, Outfit designers, people I've interviewed, my friends, family and above all my loyal readers for positive feedback /encouragement.

 

 

Remember to keep it Kaytietela (subscribe to our newsletter)

 

Slay this festive season!!

 

Happy Holidays!

 

Love Kaytietela!

THE MULLET ATTIRE

DESIGN FOR FIT LOVED FOR SYLE – THE MULLET ATTIRE

Create your own style…let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others - Anna Wintour

 

On location the beautiful sceneries, leafy green grounds and breathe taking atmosphere…would be our site for today….

 

I simply like dressing up and with this particular outfit had to outdo myself and achieve that final “wow“look. The thing about mullet skirts is that they can be rocked at any event like the red carpet, weddings or even the not-so formal affair.

 

Black sheer top to pair it with the arctic color (shade of blue) of the skirt, and some gorgeous oxblood strappy heels. Have your make up done so lightly to avoid overshadowing your outfit and should blend in perfectly. And to top it off I settled with a pair of golden accessories.
