The Kenya Fashion Bloggers style challenge for October was monochrome. I expected rainbow colors on this one but surprisingly Kenyan fashion bloggers have very similar color tastes and each of the colors is showcased at least twice – mustard, blue, white/cream and red-orange.

Most women shun monochrome outfits for fear of being too “matchy matchy” or looking like someone poured a bucket of paint over your body. Yet as the bloggers showcase, monochrome has never been more awesome with bold colors reigning supreme. The key is a few strategically placed accessories to break up the color. Be Inspired!

I found some awesome gems at the thrift store during the last couple of trips.  With the exception of the mentioned prices, everything I got was either $3 or $4. Even though I rarely check out the bags section, this time I found two bags, which I still don’t understand why no one had grabbed. Lesson? Look everywhere. You just never know.

This trip ensured I have a good number of sweaters so to prevent hoarding I will only buy a sweater I absolutely love and limit it to one per shopping trip.  I haven’t had much luck with shirts/tops and bottoms yet but the plan is to cast a wider net and visit more stores before it gets miserably cold.

QUESTION: Where do you thrift and what’s your shopping strategy?
