East meets West!
Probably the best collaboration ever!
Having been a Louboutin lover for ages and being a Kenyan Indian I couldn’t be happier when this amazing duo came together to create what I can only call a marvel!
Watch the video below where I explain in detail how they met and the story behind these iconic shoes. Love & Lite x
This has already been one of the best years for me!
I met the man I have dreamt of meeting for years on end. Its true that I am a obsessed fan of his creations.
Christian’s shoes have been my love for as long as I can remember and to dream of meeting him some day seemed far fetched to be honest.
Dreams are valid they say and I now reaffirm that statement every day of my life.
One evening I received an email asking me to attend a private shoe signing with Christian, at his Mount street store in Mayfair, London.
I almost fell off my chair! I was in total shock and elated.
So I began packing and I was off to London to meet the Shoe God himself.
I met him on the evening of my arrival and I can tell you that these were some most memorable fifteen minutes of my life.
We spoke at length about shoes, him visiting Africa, he also took a look at my closet and knew I’m a fan!
I can’t describe in words this amazing meeting and feeling. So I shall just leave you all with some pictures to look at and enjoy!
Love & Lite xx
Its almost, well a couple of months to festive season and what better than to invest in a colour of shoes thats just that?
A beautiful patent Carmin pump that makes you feel like Christmas is around the corner and warm up the cold nights?
A soaring stiletto heel and slim, crisscrossed straps define a gorgeous pointy-toe pump grounded by the brand’s instantly recognizable lipstick-red sole.4″ a head turning vamp heel(101mm) (size 36) 1/2″ shaft.Adjustable strap with buckle closure.
Please note that the red lacquer on the soles will wear off as a result of normal use. To minimize the effect, avoid wearing these shoes in wet weather or on abrasive surfaces.
These are perfect to wear on a casual day out or to a dinner with friends.
Pair with jeans and a casual top or a sexy dress, heads will turn.
If you have small ankles like me, you may need to add the holes on the strap for a better fit.
They run true to size and comfortable too.
This is how i wore mine for an evening out, and cannot wait to have more fun styling them again.
What are you going to be wearing during the festive season?
Id love to hear from you…x

I love wearing a long shirt as a light cover up when the weather acts bipolar.
Nairobi has been sunny one minute and cloudy the next. Our African winter can be quite confusing this time of the year. Thankfully its getting much warmer and you only need a light cardigan or cover up to keep comfortable.
I bought this sage green silk shirt at a Zara store in London a few months ago and wanted to wear it with jeans, but then opted for a dress with fringe detail i had come across at a local boutique in Malindi.
I thought it paired beautifully with the floral detail on the back of the shirt.
Added a beautiful pair of So Kate in 120mm and i was date ready.
Since this shade of green compliments earth tones, i finished the look with a beautiful gold studded bag by Christian Louboutin for Louis Vuitton.
Here is the full look.
I hope you like it, xoxo

Remember the bralet top from the 90’s?
It is a cross between a bra and a cropped top.
Bralet tops are often cropped but can be long as well if they are of a corset design.
Floral bralet tops are pretty popular nowadays though you can find them available in all designs and types, lace,crochet,satin,denim,tribal,aztec,monochrome,etc
If you keep up with the Kardashian sisters you may already have spotted them rocking this trend.
I absolutely love this trend and how easy it actually is to pull off.
When you have a sexy one in your closet it deserves to be seen on the outside don’t you think?
If you’re bold enough you could pull it off on its own for a very sexy statement, but make sure it doesn’t look too provocative.
The options are many.
You can also toughen up a lacey one with the 90’s grunge look and pair it with a sleek leather jacket.
Mixing and matching will keep your look fresh and unique.
Wear this stunning little garment over t shirts or any top and you have an alluring, bold fashion moment.
Same goes for slip dresses this season.
Just layer over a basic tee and your fashionably fierce.
I think they look best paired with high waist trousers,skirts, shorts or even your daily skinny jeans.
A bralet will instantly add femininity and a touch of sexy for a date.
My advice, use it as a accent item and don’t bare it all.
It wouldn’t have been complete without Christian Louboutins MegaVamp in 100mm.
Here is how i wore mine.
Have a lovely weekend.
Keep it sexy, keep it fresh <3

Bralet- Victorias Secret

Hey my loves,
Have you been keeping it stylish this week ?
I say, when in doubt stripe it out.
I always reach out for jeans when going for informal weekday lunches with the hubby.
My love for neutral tones is almost an obsession these days.
Ive been reaching out to earth like hues and it gives me a sense of fuzzy warmth.
On this particular sunny afternoon, thats exactly what i chose to wear.
Basic look with a pair of jeans and a top.
To create a twist in my outfit i paired it with the perfect striped sleeveless blazer.
I love how stripes can completely transform an outfit.
Pair stripes with cool tones or even dare for bright ones.
As i said, When in doubt stripe it out!
To complete the look i opted for even edgier shoes.
My beloved “pigalles Spikes” in nude and a clutch from the very same hue, both by Christian Louboutin.
Here is the look, have a lovely week.
Love Sonal x
