A fashion and Social Insight: Interview with Pamella E Ndagire

I was honored to interview Pamella on her life, interests and style. A purely inspiring and unique experience. She delves deep, and she brings to the world such a gift as her that only her soul could have dug up, and she is so necessary. She has strength, courage and understanding that isn’t ordinarily found. It is the gift of life to know Pamella.

Her answers are a revelation, it is an honor to share them with you.

Classic cut, elegant, clean and natural (think Audrey Hepburn with fro curls).

high heels or flats
I appreciate a cute and comfy classic flat but absolutely love an elegant pair of heels....the more eclectic the better.

Vintage (especially a good deal on vintage styles with a modern twist).

favourite dish?
love love love fresh fish stew (the way Mum makes it yummmmmmm) a big fan of Groundnut sauce too.

flowers or choclate?
Depends on how you look at it. I would say Choclate. But an environmentally safe perspective would be flowers since they can be composted and reused as mulch and nutrition to sustain the environment (sorry that's the Environment Engineer in me speaking).

My Nokia E71, my whole life's on my phone.
13inch Sony Viao
Samsung T-10 mp3 player (love my T-10 especially watching music videos and short clips on there.....best way to pass flight connection time)

favourite music
RnB anything from the 70's to present....

beauty essential

Sunscreen ......I know I know.....common belief = as a person of color you have no danger of the sun....truth = as a woman of color I am more prone to discoloration, a permanent after effect of UV sun rays, premature ageing, and deterioration of skin health. True story, I'm an advocate and success story......Ever since I started using organic UVA/UVB sunscreen....my skin is so much better.

Juice's beauty's - organic facial moisture concentrate
Mychelle Sun Shield SPF 28

hair ritual
All that's good for an afro; shampoo (organic shampoo of choice), conditioner, leave-in scalp oil...summed up by braiding in twists to create curls.


Anything Bvlgari, Hermes or Cartier

biggest luxury
A passionate love and family.

smallest luxury

what motivates you, inspires you, makes you feel enthusiastic
Knowledge, (especially new knowledge) and love.

are you a morning, afternoon or night person?why?
Hmmmmmmm.....depends on what happened the day before I guess(quacky...I know).

favourite book
'Pride and Prejudice' by Jane Austin.

favourite film
'Pride and Prejudice' in any production

describe your perfect evening
An evening on the couch with the love of my life talking.....loving..:0)

describe your day
Wake up and lay out breakfast
Well deserved shower
Get into town and onto day's doings
Head home take some time on the computer
Clean up
Have some dinner
Watch some TV
Write something, read some Bible verses
Close the day with a word of prayer and some texting with the love of my life.

what makes the character of your style...is it colours, shapes, prints, heels,bags,smiles etc??
I love solid bold colors, paired up with a neutral coloured item, love classic cuts; the cap sleeve, bateau neckline, V neck or back line, pencil skirts in black, muscular cut pants,a sucker for cardigans.

I love to keep peace and stay positive, believe everything happens for a reason, grateful....for life and every single thing that seems to happen in it.

what is the most important thing to you?
My relationship with God, family and passionate love.

Favourite quote or advice?
'Everything happens for a reason'


I would firstly like to extend my kind thanks to Pamella .E. for the interview. Pamella’s life is truly beautiful; it cleverly mars the lines of the innovative architectural and the elegant. I like that she attempts to minimally describe love but one can feel the intensity of passion in her life....It feels like a beautiful morning and tastes divine....mouth watering almost...she loves to be in love.....I love to be in love...don't we all....I love the way she describes everything from her love of her mum's food to talking to her love to thanking God at the end of each day.....it literally gave me goose bumps.....

PS: I will be investing in some sunscreen and I think all of you should....I must admit...being of color..you kind of take it for granted but she is right...it helps prevent premature skin ageing. Ohhhhhh!!!!!I must admit...I did look up the samsung T-10 mp3 player....desperate to get one now...xxx:0).....xxx

The world needs to feel this connection and intimacy constantly....like another being's sense of self through her forays in silhouette play, there would be less war, more unity and greater love for life. I am inspired by her style ( Audrey Hepburn).It ozzes strength, chic, spirit and intelligence and sophistication. I could totally see in her in ANY Audrey Hepburn dress. I look forward to another interview with Pamella E. What are your thoughts on this interview?

Mine: Her interview is sensual and thought provoking...I hope you enjoyed it......

The quote below, in my opinion, describes the taste of this interview........xxxx
