Out with black, in with "nude"



May 25, 2011 – Remember “Sisterhood of the travelling pants”? Well that was a story of a pair of pants that could fit four friends with very different body shapes and sizes. Those pair of pants had some sort of “magic” rubbed on them (I mean how can a pair of pants fit a size 8 and then a size 12 in the same way and make them look good at that?)and I’m made to believe that this “nude” colour  holds that kind of magic as well.

Now which colour is this I’m talking about? There’s always an issue when it comes to describing this colour. Some insist that only a Caucasian (because of their skin complexion)  can refer to it as nude but who really cares? It is easier for everyone to describe it like that. I mean, if you mentioned “nude” as a colour to someone they would know exactly what you are on about.

Nude can be anything from ivory-white to ebony-black or you can describe it as that non-descript beige/peach/pink colour.


Everywhere on the red carpet nowadays you can’t miss at least five A-list celebrities wearing nude (be it shoes or a striking dress) and they never disappoint either. Meaning, if you are into fashion and don’t own “nude” anything, then you are out!

Nude shoes are the new black shoes- you can pair them with practically anything. Some fashionistas will even tell you  that “No nude is bad news.”
What I love about the nude pumps is that they complete your look. Talk about giving you va va voom! Any colour will go well with a pair of nude pumps. Top shoe designers like Steve Madden, Christian Louboutin, YSL, Kelsi Dagger…are having a siesta creating designs in nude. See below how i”nude” holds outfits together…


Whether all dressed up, feeling casual, glamorous  girly, dressy, casual, glamorous…name it!) nude pumps will work for your look. Check out below:


Tip: Patent leather gives it that extra polished look… so now get with the times and splurge on some “patent nudes.”

    corruption is rife starting from the top with the COTU sec general leading. Branch elections are conducted by corrupt labour officials with blessings from Atwoli as he can only with his hench men whom he appoints and makes sure they are elected even if its in the middle of the night.union election disputes are never resolved with cases stsaying for up to 5yrs as corrupt judges sit on them with instructions from the Head office of COTU to lock out some individuals.

    wooi cotu/kupripupa full of tribalistic old wazees. Nothing changes their minds except bribes from employers to opress suffering workers. Employees under company managements are by far better than ones under trade unions. How do you explain the use of all the cash deducted from employees countrywide every month just as nssf is deducted? no audits nor accountability is done by government nor the useless ministry of labour which has also left kenyans to suffer in aarab countries? they have left poor kenyan workers to the dogs having chinees and indians to come and sell mandazi and bread in kenya, some without work permits? The unions cant even help other kenyans in the east african states to work without work permits forcing them to play hide and seek games in neighbouring countries?

    The Hostel is by far a hotter series. The ugandans really know how to Relate to campus life. They also are very Ugandan something lacking in Higher learning…….

  • this reviewer sounds like a scriptwriter for the higher learning

    the correspondent has most of his points ‘spot on’, but misses the bigger pic.. Hostel is a comedy, Higher learning is a drama. if u want something more concrete and focused, higher learning is ur thing. else go for the hilarious Hostel.

    hostel brings campus life closer home! its the ugandans originality that carries the day- the writer needs to watch how sn 1 ends and the drama in sn 2 – hostel 8/10!
