Black & Blue

How this surge of winters chill has me feeling… all bruised up from the cold & rain.

The colder it gets, the lazier I become, the more creative head-wraps you see me in and at some point I just give in completely and go for a new hairdo, or what naturals refer to as the wintertime protective style.

I finally figured out how to do one of these oversized head-wraps, lol and I must add how I was quite happily surprised to discover that it doesn’t take me growing my hair as huge as Cipriana Quann and TK Wonder to get the look.

In love with these earrings found at a steal from Mr P

With longline coats being all the rage, I’m enjoying playing different lengths against each other as I pile on the layers. And the tassles in the boots I shared with you guys HERE at a bit of my favourite trend for this winter to this look.

Through Shaded Eyes (TSE) is the brainchild of Tokelo Motsepe. A retail buyer and digital strategist with an addiction to blogging, this blog is a platform for my style, life and love for fashion to be shared. What started as an escape from the hustle and bustle of the world, has now become a place to let out my passion for fashion & writing, in-between time spent at work, traveling, or doing everything else life throws at me… it has become a form of expression and I hope it can inspire and encourage you to also share!
