This is a comeback, International Women's Day, The President and Hooker heels

First before I say anything, you know what day it is, it is our day, the day of women, so before you start reading, pat yourself on the back, add your mother and or the women who raised you to that picture, salute your sisters real and fake, and raise your glasses to women great and small!

So, hallo people:-) its been long yaani mpaka am laughing at myself. It has been a month plus! Nothing from Damaris, let me just say here that I have not been sleeping, I have been serious doing serious things, but not limited to sleeping.

I have added the president to the post tittle, just because I want to ride on the elections wave. You know like those foreign journos; I have seen an article that some woman wrote an article for The African Report on the leso/kanga where that mama is claiming that women across the continent have been wearing the leso since the 19th century to show their political affiliations. I was like really? One second please...

I had intended to come back thunderous with a new president and all, but the wait has been long and I have had some break from my regular work.
Anyway, I have been meaning to talk about the HOOKER HEEL for ages so
So onto today's post the hooker heels! Let us just get on with the photo, We all know these shoes, you have seen them everywhere, on celebrities, on rich and poor people a alike, You would think these are the only shoes one the planet, and I am not saying I don't love them, I just want to say that they have their place, everything should have a time and place, for it to be appropriate and a good thing.

1. is the original hooker heels, hooker heels are sex shoes, you wear them when you intend to do this.
It is part of the uniform if you see a hooker or pole dancer not wearing, she is either struggling or is a fake.
Now, since the women who are not pole workers wanted to walk on sex shoes, somebody (God bless them) modified them a bit, so the regular woman feels like she is working the pole but in an elegant manner. Sexy, hot and fierce.

2. is YSL's closed version of the hooker heel and
3. as you can see is a very slight modification.

We ALL love the hooker heels. They give you power in an extremely sexy kind of way. You get  several inches taller and you are oozing sex.  Look at that.
hot sexy, just hot.

Now you know that in the past 2 years, the markets have been flooded by hooker heels which is good. But you are taking it a notch too far. And this is my personal opinion. You cannot wear hooker heels with a power suit (unless you are Olivia Pope and you are running your own show) Which most of you are not anyway.

No matter how powerful you are dressed, then you round off that outfit with hooker heels, I doubt you come off serious and a powerhouse. It kills the office look, really. I imagine the men are thinking you are about to tear off your coat and start gyrating on the photocopy machine. Is that the image you want to project?
I am open to discussion but I will not change that opinion much.
And the other thing, if you wear you hooker heels with your power suit, so what do you wear with your cocktail dress or evening gowns? No matter how great the suit or outfit looks and is very office you will still be a half hooker in those the heels.

We need to respect uniforms, even for hookers, and you cant go around in full hookers regalia and when someone calls you a hooker you say, just because I am wearing this does not make me a hooker. Imagine running to a police officer, you need help then he goes like " excuuuse me just because I am wearing a police uniform does not make me a policeman!"

With that in mind allow me to make a few suggestions. I know we looove to try out different things, which is good, but sometimes conservative is good. Something I wish our female news anchors could pick up, I dont know wether after they read the news they head straight to Black Diamonds? Frankly I dont get it. Cathrine Kasavuli always go it so well, now they all went and took advice from Lilian Muli and things are just haywire on our TVs. Bad Bad!

We are going to have a new president so, you should also hit the office next looking sharp! Ready to build the nation.


I know you think they are ugly but please stick to them, they are even cheaper now, that everyone wants to go everywhere even to a garden party we huko umakazana na 10inch hooker heels looking all shades of crazy.
Who is cheating you that you can go to the office looking like this?!!

Anyway on the classic pumps, their game has been upped and they are looking all duper and powerful but really even the pumps your mother wore to the office in 1976 are still a classic.

Black classic is always the best and you can get away with it but if you want some colour and life, feel free. Try them,  give the pumps a chance and the hooker heels a brake!!! you can thank me later. And at the office extreme high heels is not always good I know you maybe short and you want to be 5'8 but why? are you working with your height? Ok that is my personal opinion, you can go higher!
but only on friday please:-)

Pumps are not going anywhere, embrace them.
And last but not least here is some outfit suggestions. Am sure you will find a look that best suits you.
Like that! and flats on Friday if your people allow. isnt that nice?

And this is exactly how I would go to the office. okay how I go to my meetings, I dont have an office.
I love parisans, always so effortlessly chic!


So just before voting, Blankets and Wines happened! And for reasons best known to me and myself I did not go (read as I chose to stay home and drink the wine there) But I see nairobians are trying to outdo each other, I see there were some very well dressed people and some okay.
We are going places!!!!!!!! totally loving that girls look.
And this is how our kids dress this days, I dont know how I feel about it.

And now that hairstyle not the braids, has given me inches of flashback.
Love the dress!
Now you all know we are in delicate times, and we are very patriotic. I love the kenyan flag, for no particular reason other than I am a kenyan, I think it is the most beautiful flag in the world. It is a flag with very strong colours. That is why I do not how I feel about this coat, Love the cut though, I would suggest if you are going to make a piece from the kenyan flag, buy one very huge flag and cut out your pattern from it, too many flags is way too busy.

And on that note, keep it sane. I await the president.
