There are a great many characters in a great many books that inspire me in many ways. There are even a few that inspire what I may choose to wear. Take Grace Makutsi for instance, secretary to Precious Ramostwe from the very respectable No1 Ladies Detective Agency. I happen to think that besides Mma Makutsi’s record breaking score of 97% at the Botswana Secretarial College, her highly-strung often opinionated views and her natural awkwardness, she also happens to be a pretty sharp dresser.
|Shirt was bought about 5 years ago from GAP. Men’s cardigan from Uniqlo.
Prescription glasses with frames from Chanel + lenses from Paris Miki London.
Ballet flats from Emmy Twenty.
Mma Makutsi was so perfectly portrayed by Anika Noni Rose in the wonderful BBC television series so much so that whenever I wear a shirt paired with knitwear, I always think to myself……
“Eh! I want to dress just like Mma Makutsi! I want to look like 97%!”
If you enjoyed these pictures, please visit Coco & Vera blog (one of my most favourite blogs)where I am mooching about London feeling very 97%. I will be so happy to see you there!
