OOTD: Just Missed The Runway + Pendeza Giveaway!

7 Votes

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 😉 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?

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! 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.  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. 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!”

To win all you have to do is:

-Follow @artbecomesyou and @bependeza on Instagram

-Share this post?

-Leave a comment below saying why you wear tights.

That’s it!

I’ll pick at random from the comments and new follows. TWO winners will be selected.

First winner gets 5 pairs of Pendeza tights + £20 Voucher to spend in a shop of their choice.

Second winner gets 5 pair of Pendeza tights.

Hope everything was clearly explained. If not, just drop a comment about any queries and I will get back to you.

Winners will be chosen Wednesday April 29th 2015.

Good luck!

  3. I agree with Dana. Girlllllll this is by far my absolute favorite post on ABY. Did you get the new camera you wanted cause the quality of these photos is just amazing!!!
    Your hair is just fab! Your lipstick is totally popping. I need these tights in my life like yesterday!!! They would make ‘bare legs’ winter appropriate and that’s every girl dream. Finding tights that are truly nude for brown skinned girls is nearly impossible so these are a genius invention! (Consider this my giveaway entry? )

    And that skirt OMG!!! I’m so in love. I can’t contain myself. Lol I would be ordering right now if it was available for sale. I need to be friends with miss Christina. Lol

    Those Loubs are everything!!!

  5. All I can say is . . . GORGEOUS!!!! The entire ensemble is just PERFECTO!! I’m madly in loveeee with your heels and the tone tights are just top notch! i sincerely cant tell the difference? The African look (skirt and hair) really do suit you.. Hats off on this one ABY cc Christina (love your work)

    I like wearing tights because they give you an even tone( esp if you have spots) and they add that chic element to an outfit when paired with heels.

  6. The outfit is the Ishhhh.And your hair..Oh my!! The skirt is lovely..Na really..I wish all bloggers responded like that..haha. I love the shoes! I wear tights as a shape wear and to prevent friction between my legs.. Shared on my I Rep Camer FB page….Keeping my fingers crossed!

  7. That skirt is everything to me, you look ? and as for those tighs they don’t even look like you have them on definitely a huge prop for me☺

  8. OMG you look absolutely stunning!! The print on the skirt is so beautiful and the sun just made you glow!!! Lovely post

  9. what a hottie!!! you look amazing, girl!
    i’m always touched by the kindness of others, even when it doesn’t concerne me directly. bravo christina! i will certainly follow her! we need more people like her.❤

  10. Fabulous love the tights. Got a pair. You can get them in PAKs or African Hair retail store in London. Info for those who want to save some coins.

  11. i have been looking for this type of tights 4 years ago. i have eczma on my leg which make is impossible for me to wear short things and i have wearing black tights. please i want to min this

  12. Love this. The skirt and shoes r killing me. Just go inspired. You always kill it Lydia. Follow Christina religiously and she is so stylish. I need to start blogging?

  13. I would never have been able to tell you were wearing tights! you looks fabulous chica! I love your entire outfit, please give me your shoes!
