Meet Fashion Blogger and Author: Andrea Eames


Meet Andrea Eames, blogger, thrifter, fashionista and novelist. Andrea blogs her daily fashion
choices at her blog, A Cat of Impossible Color - most pieces she wears are cleverly thrifted by Andrea herself. Andrea has one published YA book and now her first novel has been purchased by a Random House branch, due to be published in 2011, and entitled Ngozi, meaning ' venegful ghosts' in zimbabwe (sorry the capital z is broken on my keyboard!)



Andrea has a light hearted writing style while addressing working from home, writing ideas and discussions, and fashion. As you can see she prefers a very feminine, old school vintage look. I've been reading her blog for over a year and love her daily updated photos of outfits and the writing life.

Here is the blurb of her novel, Ngozi :


Being a white Zimbabwean in the 1990s is a near-perfect life. Your clothes are always clean and ironed, there is always tea in the silver teapot, gins and tonics are served on the verandah, and, in theory at least, black and white live in harmony. As Mugabe’s presidency turns sour, however, this idyllic and privileged world begins to crumble into anarchy. Told through the eyes of a young girl, Ngozi follows the struggle of one troubled white family to stay afloat in the collapsing economy and escalating horror of Mugabe’s Zimbabwe. When the farm invasions begin, the violence threatens to destroy their way of life forever, and escaping the vengeful ghosts (‘ngozi’) of their past seems impossible. Can they stay, or must they go?

I just die for that little yellow trenchcoat + bowtie combination. So Diane Keaton does Annie Hall chic! Love it.

Cheers.

Wow, mixing fashion with a topic as serious as Zimbabwe's new government. Should be a great read. http://www.newsy.com/videos/white_farmers_in_zimbabwe

Kayla - it's not mixing fashion with it; I wouldn't do that. My blog is about vintage clothing, but I grew up in Zimbabwe and left at the height of the violence. My novel has nothing to do with my blog, which is a hobby. And I don't think there's anything wrong with having fashion as a hobby, even though I come from a country with a situation as serious as Zimbabwe's.
