White parties have been all the rave this summer. autumn is slowly kicking in and old coats and cardigans are being unearthed from their hiding places. ..But that does not in any way mean you can’t rock an all white outfit or throw an all white everything party! My last post about the ELLE’s 20th Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration, where  almost everyone looked radiant in white has put me in the mood for some hot white fabulousness!

Are you in the mood for a white on white ensemble? Here are a few ideas to get you going.

1. All White Suit

Go literal. Wear white from head to toe. White outfits will always allow you to go bold and bright with your makeup. Don’t miss out on this chance to rock your favourite bold lip colour.

A trouser suit or jumpsuit in all white will make just the right statement…

White is very pure and innocent and girly. Choose a sexy white number that will speak for itself. I really love this Topshop white dress. Elevate the look with classic pumps and a showstopper lip colour.

4. Poppin’ Accessories

Save your bright and bold accessories for your all white everything look. With white, anything goes. Got red shoes? A blue hat?  Yellow purse? Studded biker? Killer lace-ups? Bring them out and make them pop against your white ‘fit. I styled this ensemble more casual chic with a white pair of trousers, a peplum top and electric blue heels.

I have always been a fan of the CNN Heroes awards show. Every year I’d sit in front of the TV screen and listen to these extraordinary good deeds done by immensely kind people. Not only did these touching stories make me cry shamelessly but they also made me vow to be the first Cameroonian CNN hero.

But Dr. Georges Bwelle has beat me to it.

https://i0.wp.com/i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2012/images/11/04/vote.jpg

Here’s What He Did:

Dr. Georges goes trekking through mud, rivers and jungle to provide free medical care. He offers free weekend surgeries. That is a huge lifesaver given the cost of surgery in Cameroon and the mass number of people who find it increasingly difficult to be able to afford surgery.

This Cameroonian doctor with a big heart is doing us proud. Here’s the story of Dr. Bwelle and why he so deserves to be a Top 10 contender in the ultimate running to be CNN Hero of the year 2013.

https://i2.wp.com/www.ascovime.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/photo-web-Georges.jpg

For 21 years, Georges Bwelle watched his ill father slip in and out of consciousness, traveling to hospitals that weren’t equipped to help him.
Jamef Bwelle was injured in a 1981 car accident near Yaounde, Cameroon’s capital. He suffered only a broken arm at first, but an infection developed and spread to his brain, creating a hematoma that would affect him for the rest of his life.
“There were no neurosurgeons in Cameroon,” Georges Bwelle said. “We would have taken him out of Cameroon if we had the money.”
Instead, Bwelle spent years escorting his father to overcrowded clinics and hospitals, getting whatever treatment they could get.
“It’s not easy,” Bwelle said. “You can leave home at 5 a.m., running to the hospital to be the first, and you are not the first. There (are) a lot of patients. … Some people can die because they are waiting.”
The situation hasn’t changed much since Bwelle’s father passed away in 2002.
In Cameroon, there is only one doctor for every 5,000 people, according to the World Health Organization. For comparison’s sake, the ratio in the United States is one doctor for every 413 people.
And even if they could see a physician, many Cameroonians couldn’t afford it. Two out of five people in the country live below the poverty line, and nearly three-quarters of the country’s health-care spending is private.
“The only problem they have is poverty,” Bwelle said. “And with poverty, they … cannot enjoy their life.”
Seeing his father and so many of his countrymen suffer, Bwelle was determined to do something about it.

Our favourite celebs are not letting the downpours of rain get in their way of having a great time. A handful of noteworthy names were gathered at ELLE’s 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration. Here’s the style report of who wore what.

White was the winning colour of the night for most. 

We all know Meagan Good is not your average Pastor’s wife. The sexy actress gave us a hint of  her gifted bossom in this white jumpsuit.

It’s been raining intermittently for days now. So unfortunately I haven’t been able to get any pictures taken at all; (well hello autumn, we see you). Thankfully, the rains gave in for a few hours and I was able to slip in a few shots. You can still see the water on my skirt 😦

So, Cameroonian  rapper, Stanley Enow is making waves with his catchy single ‘Hein Père’. This song is getting so much and you know what, it deserves it and more. Therefore, it isn’t a surprise that when I heard about Hein Père merchandise, I didn’t hesitate to jump on the train. I purchased the On Est High Pere female tank top in white. You can get yours too from here.

There are so many ways to wear this tank. You can always dress it up or dress it down. I dressed it up here by going for the classic white and black combo. A midi leather pencil skirt and my favourite leather jacket completed my fit. I accessorized with a pair of quite comfortable ankle strap wedge heels which I got from Office in the summer. Unfortunately they’ve sold out but River Island have got a similar pair. My biker leather jacket is from Topshop and is over a year old but it’s such a classic. 

I got my braids in only two weeks ago. They still hurt like crazy every time I try a bun so I’ve just been letting them loose. I went for a berry lip using Rouge Pur Couture Fuschia Pink by Yves Saint Laurent. I’ve fallen in love with this lipstick. I can’t get enough of it.

In her own words, Brittany is a 24 year old plus size fashion blogger that loves to be told “what not to wear” because she will break all of the rules! I love this bold and sexy blogger.
