High Lows.


Pictures by obedphotography.com

For someone who likes trying out new pieces, especially customized ones, I must admit that Nairobi has very good tailors, ‘fundis’, or should I say designers. Only that at times this tailors can get you going kookoo. Reason why I’m highly considering buying a sewing machine and just learning how to sew:-).

I’m one of those who are obsessed when it comes to creating what I will wear. I love being involved in the process. And many are the times you will find me sourcing for materials and trying to figure out what will go well with it. Speaking of which I need to do that soon.

Anyway I knew what I wanted with this top, a different kind of high low. Not the normal basic one. I remember the first time my mum saw it and she was like; ‘what a nice coat.’ Only to realize it wasn’t a coat after trying it on the third time.

All in all, I sort of like that he finally got what I wanted and I’m loving it.
