Welcoming Ms. Julie O to the LHO Team: Fashion Report From South Africa

10711083_10152306824351360_2811860762009893930_nWith the passage of time, new things must spring to life. So as we approach our 5 year anniversary we are also celebrating new parts and pieces to the LHO Family.

Oh, Hi!

Hello everyone! My name is Julie O and I’m a Scorpio. I’m also a girl. One who lives several lives in one, between Kenya, South Africa and the internet; between being a model and a future architect; even being a preppy kid one day and an Ankara butterfly the next. But we can chat about clothes and style later. We thought you all needed some background on just who I am since I will be penning to you all on the regular.

There are certain things that stay constant in all my life scenes. One is my adoration for my first love and the place that is home, Kenya. That includes the family and friends that have made me myself.

Another is my love for travel, art, food, learning languages and spreading messages of consciousness and knowledge. To me, every time you learn something new about how the world works, it becomes better. I hope to impart as well as gain some… no! LOTS of knowledge as I begin this new fashion powered journey (yes, fashion too can make the world better)

Right now I’m here to say a quick hello and introduce you to my weird little world at the southern edge of the African continent. Hold somebody’s hand because it’s going to be a ride full of colour, big waves, adventure, FASHION, and a few laughs.

I’m psyched :D Watch this space. Kbye.

Julie O. for the #LHOTeam

Mens Wear Goes Ethnic

So how are you all doing?
We’ve been busy busy… checkout our instagram account for more: http://www.instagram.com/LHOCreations

However something we are seriously working on are mens’ dress shirts. 
We got a few out to some wonderful customers, but we wanted to order even more in and ethnify them.
You know we are all about making ethnic fashion a regular thing on the streets. So we want to add our ethnic fabric to the sleeves and collars and see what the outcome will be. We are also going to work on a couple of dresses since alas, spring is right around the corner and we want to dress you for every occasion.

As usual, leave us your thoughts. You know we love to hear from you.
Always… smooches

The Year of Bow Ties: Gals vs Guys Version

We love you all. Do you know that?
We love what you inspire us to create? What you inspire us to shop for? All that you make us think about? We truly do want to exist to cater to you. So thank you for the opportunity to dress and accessorize YOU.

Now… 2 guesses what the latest request is?
People wanted us to get bow ties in stock. Men (and men’s significant others) wanted us to get something that was guy-ish without too much effort. Jewelry can be guy-ish but it’s not every man’s thing. So we got thinking and so after months of hunting we are proud to announce that yes, Love’s Hangover Creations will now have both clip-on, self-tie and ready-tied bow ties.

Mr. Fun Vs. Simply Sexy

Mr. Fun Vs. Simply Sexy

We have a local Indy designer who we are proud to be collaborating with on a majority of these. So look out on every social media page we have from Instagram (which we just joined: http://www.instagram.com/ LHOCreations) to Pinterest/ Twitter and Facebook for updates as they are produced.

Now the thing that we found out while doing our research is as much as bowties seem like a guy thing. They really aren’t anymore (sorry guys… women borrowed that look too) and we wanted to know who you think rocks this accessory better (feel free to be biased to your gender or the opposite sex. We do not mind)? So we’ve compiled a tonne of pictures as always from journeying online and we want to hear you. This time round, feedback means PRIZES (someone is winning a bottle of wine from us) and everyone loves prizes so be sure to comment, comment some more and comment again.

Here are the looks we found and NO we do not own these images. NO they are not ours, but we are more than honored to feature them on our site in celebration of The Year Of Bow Ties:
