GiRl Gone RoGuE : aWkwaRd FaShion.

Dear sister nice

Everything has  its beauty , but not everyone see it.

In the world i get up to , anything and everything goes ,basically there is nothing new under the sun and that makes everything recyclable.Through daily endeavors i have concluded that in doing what makes me happy however undesirable and repugnant to people , is worth doing because for every mistake will come my great invention.

Limits exist only in the mind.

The journey of life’s roughness is worth to me every second , every penny ,every moment for every mistake i make to me is the path to being close to that which i value most.Whenever i fulfill the doing of awesomeness ( that which favors my rouguness to the fullest) the lesson one learns out of trying over and over again increases my closeness to my Eureka moment. Even the wise insist a life spent making mistakes is worth more than that spent doing Nada.

 
Keep on, keeping on.

All around my world i see everyday all kinds of clothes ,fashion, and unfashionable. What one sees is worth a lot of amusement, compliments , turn offs and the need to look better.
I insist on having the positive outcome because we all have dressed or seen people in awkward fashion.I minced it awkward due to the fact that putting together an outfit may put one in awkward fashion or in style.

Sister nice what am gushing to say is that the process to having style passes one through odds and ends of awkward fashion. To go through awkward fashion is something i am encouraging you to do , dress in that which makes you happy that which you want , because in your experience you learn what makes your style look hot. Examples are designers , Oscar delarentes, John Varvatos, John kaveke , anglesmile ask them they all at a time went through clumsiness to find their niche and made a brand out of .

Faith , hope and trust.

Its official that when you dress up in that outfit learn that which makes you go nay or yay.Its the assignment that grants you the insight to deepening the understanding of yourself , then you will become a you, a better you , a you to the perfectionist.My calling to rogueness is one i like to adhere to , as you have fun in the awkward fashion remember Coco Chanel words ‘ fashion is what you adopt when you don’t know who you are.

The Fashion Traps

For those who are head over heels about fashion, you may have stumbled across a fashion trend which you may have thought was a joke. It is likely that you just went with it when an actual fact it was just a fashion trap. Time to time, we may have seen a new collection and needed to slip a pair of rose tinted glasses because you just could not understand why someone would have created such monstrous pieces. Being the gatekeepers of fashion, top designers and stylists can pretty much get away with anything, right? If something looks unpractical, they can justify their looks with connotations to art or a deep philosophy. Just look up “Marc Jacobs shrink wrap” on google for example.

Here are the top 5 emerging fashion trends not to slip into:

#1 Platforms
When making mistakes, humans are creatures that never seem to learn from them. Case in point, the platform shoe. A trend which makes an appearance approximately every 20 years, has everyone breathing a sigh of relief when it departs. Despite vowing to never wear another hideous pair again, us humans only have a 20 year memory span which may be the reason why every fashion conscious person has been eyeing up a pair of high rise shoes. A tip I would suggest is to purchase a pair this season and keep them for 20 years. When the next platform wave hits, sell them on e-bay claiming them as vintage and make a mint. With wedge heels standing the test of recent times, stick to them as they prove more elegant than the chunky platform.

#2 Patterned Pants
There is nothing wrong with patterned pants, with tops commonly upstaging the garment leaving it seen in safe colours and patterns. Why not experiment with them a little bit and make them stand out for a change? As it is a bold statement, it can be a hard look to pull off which is why I believe many should avoid this trend. From observing street and cat walks I can only see them as pajama bottoms, which makes me question whether pants were ever destined to stand out, with every attempt in doing so causing people to forever look back in shame.

#3 Crop Top
Being a child during the nineties (this is showing my age), I am sceptical of any trends from the nineties that are coming back into fashion, (as seen by the platform shoe). The crop top is another trend, last seen in the nineties that should not be supported. Unfortunately I cannot give you a convincing justification as to why the crop top should be given the chop apart from that I don’t think that it looks nice. Call me a prude but I am just not comfortable seeing people’s midriff’s let alone showing mine in public. Although this time, the crop top has been put together with high waisted pant which avoids showing off your old belly button piercing. Nevertheless it still has me predicting that it will become a fashion crime in the next few seasons.

#4 Wide Leg
I am having second doubts about the popularity of the wide leg. Although skin tight jeans have had their day, the wide leg pant remind me of another nineties comeback which makes me want to shut my eyes. Although the pants are fantastic for pear or hour glassed bodies, I am visualising the development of this style to become exaggerated and turn into 70s flares which lets face it, were terrible in the rain and would absorb water all the way to your knee.

#5 Double Denim
This one has be scratching my head as this was always a universal fashion no-no. This will no doubt be the trend to absolutely stay away from this season, hands down. See this as a warning to stop you from clothing regret. I have always been told that this should never carried out and unless it is fashion gate-keepers playing tricks on us, I cannot understand why celebrities have been smiling gracefully for magazine publications in their double even triple denim glory. It just baffles me.

Moral of this article is that despite your love for fashion, try to not fall for every trend that comes along. If a new style trend arrives, add a bit of your personal critique to see if it really matches your style before believing in the hype.

Girl Gone Rogue

Dear sister nice,

I would love to describe myself to the world , but i love evincing , to me it makes  create my style as an expression of my unique charisma and to the very best present my perfectionist to beyond the limits.

Am not perfect but am me to perfection.

 

I am a Neon Induced Creative  Epidemic that for a while have been harboring a disease i want to infiltrate the human race . Its quite simple yet lethargic i am a girl gone rogue.

My incessant use of the word girl is miraculously due to the fact that i keep my female close and pride in having her remind me of what my maker so forth took time to create. Being recognized as a girl is a term that can be offensive , but i embrace it as my female attache that flourishes in those things that keeps true to perfecting me.

Rogue depicts a man dishonest and criminal like, my rogueness is in element to behaving differently from my kind and causing some DAMAGE while in performance.Its the platform to my explosive side being able to advertise its existence , and by me choosing the  power pen means its causing havoc .ie

R- Resistance

O- Originating

G- Geographically

from

U- Unique

E- Euphemism

I choose to deepen the length of my words for i dont want you to understand , i need you as my partner, to be with me in this times of disaster , tsunamis and God knows what. Most people write to let there problems out to seek solutions , i dear sister nice am divulging for you to join in the ” problem”, come and lets divvy in the fun.

They say don’t introduce something as a problem unless you intend to have its solution found. Keeping true to they i present my solution you.

I will keep professing the power of the pen to you , till you most graciously accept my proposal and put a ring on it. My patience will not expire because with being a sister nice am inspired to keep being a Girl

MOHAWK ITS STILL INTRUIGING

The mohawk (also referred to as a mohican in British English) is a hairstyle in which, in the most common variety, both sides of the head are shaven, leaving a strip of noticeably longer hair in the center. Though mohawk is associated mostly with punk rock subculture, today it has entered mainstream fashion. The mohawk is also sometimes referred to as an iro in reference to the Iroquois, from whom the hairstyle is derived – though historically the hair was plucked out rather than shaved.

 

THE ORIGIN

While the mohawk hairstyle takes its name from the people of the Mohawk nation, an indigenous people of North America who originally inhabited the Mohawk Valley in upstate New York,[1] the association comes from Hollywood and more specifically from the popular 1939 movie, Drums Along the Mohawk starring Henry Fonda.

The Mohawk and the rest of the Iroquois confederacy (Seneca, Cayuga, Onondaga, Tuscarora and Oneida) in fact wore a square of hair on the back of the crown of the head. The Mohawk did not shave their heads when creating this square of hair, but rather pulled the hair out, small tufts at a time. The following is a first-hand account of James Smith, who was captured during the French and Indian war and adopted into the Mohawk tribe: “…[A] number of Indians collected about me and one of them began to pull hair out of my head. He had some ashes on a piece of bark in which he frequently dipped his fingers in order to take a firmer hold, and so he went on as if he had been plucking a turkey, until he had all the hair clean out of my head, except a small spot about three or four inches square on my crown the remaining hair was cut and three braids formed which were decorated…”.

In defiance to the mass scalpings the Mohawks used this hairstyle as a symbolic gesture of open rebellion, this has a taunting effect on those who choose to hunt down and scalp the Mohawks for war or pay.

Therefore a true hairstyle of the Mohawks was one of plucked-out hair, leaving a three-inch square of hair on the back crown of the head with three short braids of hair decorated. The three braids of a True Mohawk hairstyle are represented today on traditional headdresses of the Mohawk known as a “Gustoweh”. Mohawk Gustoweh’s have three upright eagle feathers that represent the three braids of long ago.

KEEPING IT IN STYLE

Depending on how it is worn, the mohawk can be a high-maintenance style. Regular, careful shaving or trimming is required to maintain a clean line between the shaven and unshaven (or short and long) portions of the hair; this can be especially complicated in bi and tri hawks.

If the hair is to be worn up, brushing, backcombing, blow-drying, and twisting are required, as well as the application of sprays and in some cases other holding agents like white or clear glue, egg whites, cornstarch, or gelatin. The amount of time required for styling may increase considerably with longer hair or complicated styles such as liberty spikes (sometimes known as a libertyhawk).

Some wearers enhance the look of their mohawks with hair dyes. This too can require a great deal of initial effort and maintenance, especially in styles where the color(s) form an integral part of the style. In some cases, for example, mohawk-wearers who normally wear their hair up in a fan style dye the hair in even lines or stripes of color, either horizontal or vertical.

THE VARIETIES OF MOHAWKS

Classic (1970s-1980s) mohawks

Mohawks or mohawk-like hairstyles can be cut in patterns deviating from the simple central strip. For example, a mohawk with multiple parallel strips of hair may be called a “bi-hawk” (for two strips), a “tri-hawk” (for three strips), etc. A hairstyle resembling a sideways mohawk, such as one that runs from ear to ear or temple to temple, is called a “crosshawk”.

  • Liberty spikes are spikes of hair in the mohawk instead of a row. The spikes can be of a single color, or dyed various colors. Bright colors are common, but when this style is worn by members of the goth subculture, it may be dyed in darker tones. The term also applies to this style when it is worn over the entire scalp.
  • A “deathhawk” features voluminous teased or backcombed hair, and is common to the deathrock and goth subcultures. Small sections of hair left at the side of the head, just in front of the ears are known as “Deathlocks,” “bat wings” or “devilocks“, and are normally associated with the deathhawk style.
  • The “psychobilly mohawk” or “quiff” is the most common haircut for fans of psychobilly. It is in essence a pompadour with the sides shaved, similar to the haircut British National Service recruits received during basic training in the 1950s. A similar haircut has recently become popular among indie kids who often add a side or central parting in imitation of post-World War II veterans returning to civilian life in the 1950s
  • A “frohawk” is occasionally seen on African American punks, ravers, and old-school hip-hop fans. Some include hair twists on the side, cornrows, or just pinning up the sides. This style, originally the traditional haircut for warriors of the African Mandinka tribe, was popularized by actor Mr T.
  • A Chelsea hawk is a mohawk with bangs, generally popular with females. Oi! skinheads, as depicted in the movies This is England and Combat Girl, keep a long fringe at the front but shave the back and sides. A longer version of the haircut dyed black is sometimes worn by emo girls.

Modern (post-1990) mohawks

  • A “lazy hawk” is a typical Mohawk, except left unstyled, resting on the wearer’s head, and can be seen in The Marvel Comics character Daken (Wolverine’s son), who is shown since his birth with a mohawk (long with the sides shaven).
  • A mohawk styled like a fan is a fanhawk. A variant of this is the “rayhawk,” a short mohawk dyed bright blue; it is named due to the popularity of the style among Tampa Bay Rays players. The style has become popular among ‘Rays fans. A “warhawk” is a very short mohawk (0–3 inches). Examples include videogame characters Joseph Turok and John “Soap” McTavish, fictional taxi driver Travis Bickle, mixed-martial artist Chuck Liddell, and singer Ivan Moody.
  • A wide mohawk extending almost to the temples is referred to as a “shark fin”. Shark fins are popular among the British chav and raver subcultures. The back is shaved into a V-shape and it is usually spiked and bleached blond. This is also known as a “V-cut mohawk”. A similar haircut is worn by some emo and pop-punk fans. A mohawk that starts on the occiput and runs down into a rattail or mullet ponytail is a “rat-hawk”.
  • Rather than the strip of longer hair in the center of the scalp, a “reverse mohawk”, also known as a “nohawk”, or “hawkmo” features a shaved strip from the forehead to the nape of the neck leaving hair on either side of the line.

 

  • A fauxhawk or “fohawk” copies the style of a mohawk, but without shaving the sides of the head.[10] The fauxhawk is typically worn with a small but noticeable spike in the middle, though usually considerably shorter than many traditional mohawks. The style re-emerged in the early 2000s, with one of the popularly known wearers being David Beckham. The fauxhawk is known in the Hoxton and Shoreditch districts of London as the “Hoxton fin”.[11]
  • A fauxhawk where the hair down the center of the head is longer than the hair on the sides is a “euro-hawk”. Sometimes the top of the hair is long enough to cover up the shorter sides when combed down. Some of the more popular sports figures and fashion models can be found wearing euro-hawks in various lengths, textures and colors. The mohawk has been a style mostly seen on punk rockers and the like, but fauxhawks and euro-hawks have transcended to all hair types. The ponyhawk or pony hawk is a type of euro-hawk created by a row of ponytails going down the middle of the head. This look was worn by contestant Sanjaya Malakar on an episode of the television series American Idol.[12]
  • A “curly hawk” or “curl-hawk” is similar to the fauxhawk, this lesser known hawk is in traditional faux style but consists of long thin curls. Having been made famous by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen during the early years of Full House, this is most commonly sported by infants.

With Pride

In my days as an african woman i have come to cherish the liberty at which one gets there confidence. A rare thing it is to see a woman so confident, strong not intimidating . As i walk in the busy Nairobi  streets i amaze at the beauty in the african woman  , and as a staunch sister nice encode more on how they can acquire confidence.

While growing up and going through awkward teenage moments  i used to cower at the thought of myself walking proudly with my head held high , looking elegant and receiving pleasantries . Being a teenager is confusing and transforming experience that preceeds maturity , it was during that time that i learned an important lesson. My mum loves it when one is proud and rocking beautifully what one has and on that day she said “tembea kwa maringo” walk with pride.

Pride is the feeling of satisfaction when you possess something good , something great.To be with pride is to be with a good health, you have to take care that it is just for the good of the body . A woman having pride is gorgeous , that one can in their nature be themselves and feel good about it. What i drive to say is from  good pride comes great confidence , and from great creates a greater you.

Every woman has that look , that outfit that smothers her curves and beholds her beauty , take that look own it , be comfortable , satisfied , be of pride and walk with confidence. Its a true path of which one must brave to walk to feel and be in touch with our true selves .
