All White with a Splash of Khanga

silvia njoki all white

silvia njoki all whiteHair has always been an integral part of my life for as long as I can remember, and when I started my loc journey, It was a chance for me to experience a purposeful change of self acceptance. So when I saw actress Zendaya Coleman wearing faux loc extensions at the 2015 Academy Awards, I was excited! and thought she looked beautiful, I was surprised by the uncalled-for comments that Fashion Police Judge Giuliana later made. You can read about it here . Which got me wondering what are the most common misconceptions about locs that you’ve heard?

I have always been a fan of all-white ensembles. Its never easy wearing white, lots of care has to be given not to get any stains on it. Nevertheless, this has to be my favorite monochromatic look!

I got these 2 gorgeous lesso scarves from the lovely guys at Lifeline fashion who are also behind the love is projectThe LIFE line LOVE Scarves were limited edition and therefore no longer up for sale, but be sure to check out www.lifelinefashion.org and see more fashion goodies and how they are empowering women across Kenya by fighting poverty with fashion! 

Style Note

This is a tip I got from Glamour Magazine a while ago; When wearing monochromatic whites, vary the textures and explore ways to pair different fabrics.

    I love the look! White jeans are so chic but like you said one has to be very conscious not to get stains on them.
    Have I ever mentioned how much I love that you started adding style notes to each post? It’s brilliant – A quick take away that one can remember even if they can’t recall the finer details of the post.

      I am not sure about different shades of white. I try to match them… otherwise I feel the other looks stained. It’s a clever balance though… thank you.

  • Fabulous as always!!! By the way, is it just me? Is this new? Has anyone else ever mentioned to you that Nancie Mwai and you kind of look alike? I think you kind of do 🙂
