The creative scene in Nairobi has grown immensely in the past 5 years especially in the art and fashion industries. One such event is the style gig - the Thrift Social by 2manysiblings. This past weekend saw the second edition held at Live at the Elephant in Nairobi. 2manysiblings is a brother sister duo of style and art enthusiasts, whose style sense and social media pages are a Pinterest-lovers dream! With their creative photos and a great sense of style to match. Their event, designed to appeal to style mavens and enthusiasts saw Nairobi's best style crowd, from fabulous 'fros to the latest trend in the fashion world and even the Maasai jewelry made appearances(besides myself!)

The tastefully curated stands,
Given the ever changing weather in Nairobi lately, I opted for my go-to outfit which easily works hot/cold weather, the old and trusted denim x denim. Little story about these pants, bought them 5 years ago when all cuffed harem pants were all the rage, fast forward a year later, trend died brutally and replaced with boyfriend jeans; being a woman of solutions, I ripped them off and thus the end result. And as luck may have It, ripped pants are really in season this year ;)
As part of the #OwnYourCulture campaign I'm running, It's mandatory(to myself mostly) to wear at least one traditional piece. This has greatly enhanced my creativity and envisioning techniques. Whether it's a new purchase or deciding to what to wear, I must always know which color/texture/prints of clothes will work best with these pieces. Lookout for cool Maasai pieces on www.uberduka.com
Lately, I have found that most of my 5 year old fashion pieces making a comebacks(see my post @missvavavum instagram), for example these red tasseled wedges that only come out in the cold season. Note- to pull off the ripped cuffs, make sure to pair the pants with stunning shoes
More style from the event, nude colored boots x shirt dress= this season's total style win!
When sports wear meets office wear,
