Hail The Coatigan

Lucia Musau

When I came in this city I use to dread the cold weather, I know ‘hate’ is a strong word but I really hated the cold. But then how exactly are you supposed to hate what you have to live with? At some point I had to come into terms with it. I looked for ways and things which could get me excited about the cold! It was a long search which required a lot of ‘self-talk’ but I can proudly say I found the one thing which makes me look forward to the cold season. Dressing up for the cold! I always look forward to taking out my trench coats and boots in this season! Pairing combinations which you didn’t even know could work. The trick is to start looking for seasonal pieces way in advance and find items which compliment your existing wardrobe.

This year I’m leaning towards burgundy and camel! I love the richness of burgundy and I love how you can easily pair it up with anything and a simple dress is immediately transformed. However, I must say in this look what caught my attention…or rather the ‘bombshell’ were the ‘shoes’ I mean these shoes make you suddenly get a spring on your step! I got them from Tausi Creations (+254 720 670372) and they are the just the deal!

So my first look of the season, I went for a long sleeved burgundy dress and waterfall Coatigan…here is how that turned out…(find details on where to get yours at the bottom of the post)

    Ahh! Felt the same way when I first moved to Nairobi but realized that I had to suck it up,especially since I knew I would be around for a while. Now I love putting together the outfits. I am absolutely obsessed with boots, (cold weather or not), and the jackets and trench-coats are always a blast to style.
    The Coatigan is lovely. The camel tone is smooth and soft against the hot and sexy burgany dress. And of course the shoes killed it!
