OOTD: Just Missed The Runway + Pendeza Giveaway!

ankara skirt pendeza 1

Today’s outfit is a very special one to me because the outfit was given was made for me by a complete stranger! My mother told me never to talk to strangers on the internet (and I went ahead and started a blog!) but sometimes you come across the nicest people on these interwebs. I’ve never met Christina of Just Missed The Runway before but I so love her style and I always stalk drop by her blog and leave my rants of admiration. LOL. Christina noticed and before I knew it we were exchanging emails and before I knew it she had this beautiful African print skirt made for me and air mailed it all the way to the UK! I wish all bloggers responded to my feedback like this. Hahaha. Most people won’t even respond to comments. Not to talk o0f responding with gifts. OMG. She’s the nicest person ever! I was so not expecting it.

I received the skirt in the winter so I’ve been dying for Spring to get here so I can rock it. As soon as the first rays of sunshine emerged last week, I stepped out in all my fishtail gloriousness. BOOM!

Isn’t it lovely? How do I ever repay such a random act of kindness?

It’s the ones you least expect, that touch you the most. THANK YOU CHRISTINA. YOU are my God-sent, hottie, silky ebony skin Ghanaian blogger bae πŸ˜‰Β Everyone please go check out her blog and follow her! She’s such a gem.

Speaking of giving…what do you notice about these pictures?

I’m wearing tights. Yes, TIGHTS!

***In all the pics where I’m sat down, I’m wearing Pendeza skin tone tights and in the rest of the pictures, I’m not wearing any tights. This is just to demonstrate how similar to your tone the tights look πŸ™‚

This beautiful lady from Pendeza Pantyhose got in contact with me about showcasing skin tone tights made for women of every colour. I could barely believe it. Until I received a beautiful pack of my own tights and tried them on. It matched!Β Now I don’t even wear tights and always prefer to go bare legs because I hate it when you can see that I am wearing tights. This one matched my skin exactly.

I’m wearing Tone 20 from the Toned Collection in the pictures above. Skin match tights are perfect for Spring because it is getting sunny but it still feels windy at times so you can get away with rocking your shorter hemlines while wearing skin tone tights.

Pendeza was started back in 2010 to introduce sheer tights for darker skin tones. Our goal was to create beautiful hosiery from the finest yarns in order to enable colourful women to celebrate their legs in style and that is precisely what we have done. Β Before Pendeza, there were no sheer tights for darker skin tones. We proudly launched our Toned Collection to fill this gap in the market, followed in due course by our fantastic Black Secrets range.Β Pendeza is one of a kind. We pride ourselves on our great customer service and our stylish, affordable products. If you have not tried our sheer tights for darker skin tones yet, you’re missing out!”
