The Deal With Thapelo

His name is Thapelo Letsebe, a young aspiring stylist and blogger who is absolutely obsessed with fashion and loves looking good (his words not mine) He lives in Gaborone( i call them Ma Gaborone).

I have known Thapelo for a couple of years now, i have seen his style evolve, change and grow over the years. Just like the rest of us we go through stages of experimenting trying to find what our personal style really is and i feel like he is at that point where has has finally found it, he knows what works for him and i LOVE IT

He also hosts an entertainment radio segment that explores fashion and all its elements every Wednesday morning at 10:50 only on Yarona Fm, so be sure to tune in, follow him on Twitter @Thapelo_Letsebe, Like Pap And Fashion on Facebook and check out his Blog YARN HIPSTER

Here is a few things he had to say :).

Describe your personal style and its influences/inspiration.

Wow!!I am really all over the place.Today I would rock the grunge look and the following day I'd be in my tribal prints.I guess I just love to experiment.My inspirations come from a lot of things like the street style in New York,European lanky male models and yeah,what's hot for the season.

What would you say to someone seeking fashion advice?

Do not follow a trend just because its considered to be hot.Rock something you feel comfortable in and with a hint of your personality!!!

Are there any words you would like to give to young people trying to achieve something in fashion

Don't do it for the fame or the money.Love what you do and the rest will follow!it sounds corny but very true.

Fête de la Musique 2014

Fête de la Musique which is french by the way is also known as World Music Day and it is an annual music festival that takes place on the June 21, all around the world and us being the cool kids that we are in Botswana we had one as well for the third time since 2011 and boy wasn't it one to remember, from the young crowd to the older every one was there and united in celebrating local artists and their music at Botswana Craft.

The event started during the day all the way to the early our of the morning, as cold as it was the atmosphere was alive with the warmth and kindness of everyone who was there, the whole city was united in a way that i had never seen before, from seeing old school mates to Friends you had not seen in a long time, it was happiness all around, what made Fête de la Musique even better was how well organised it was, every thing went smoothly, most importantly it was safe and from everyone i have talked too they feel the same way too.

Thank you Alliance française, Botswana Craft and all the other sponsors for such a great event.

Oh Happy Birkenstocks

Remember those sandals we all use to love when we where kids, the brown ones with the two straps, arguably the most comfortable shoes ever, well if you have been wearing them in secret like me over the last couple of years because they where "cool" its time to be proud of them because they are back and everyone is loving them.

I grew up wearing these shoes whether at home, school or just around my town and i never stopped loving them now it seems like the fashion crowd is finally starting to recognize how awesome these shoes are ( I have been saying) and we can thank Givenchy and the Olsen twins for this latest resurrection of the Birkenstock and i hope it is here to stay, the great thing about this shoe is that it comes in different styles and colors, more importantly it go with everything, from your formal look to your edgy look, oh lets not forget that its a unisex shoe.

There is one thing i ask though if you are going to be wearing the Birkenstock PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE stay away form the Mom jeans/ Soccer dad with socks combo, no one is trying to bring that back so make sure it is not you.
