TRYING ON ORANGE COLOR FOR THE FIRST TIME!!!

Hy my lovelies….

To think that once upon a time I hated the color orange, and to prove that to you, this orange colored shiffon top I have on is the first I have had in my twenty something years of existence. I just had the notion that it wasn’t the best color for my skin tone and secondly it is a very loud color ( I did not want to be noticed, my height was already doing that job). I have no idea how I managed to buy this top, and after two years of it laying down in my wardrobe I decided to give it a try. I was disappointed in a good way.

With the way this color is popping on me, I take back all the negative notion I had about it in the first place.

My expectations skyrocketed from zero to one hundred. Summer is definitely my favorite season because you get to play around with colors of different sort not to mention the beautiful flowers.

I paired my chiffon top with black jeans just because I was trying to play safe, and of course my favorite pair of sneakers which am sure by now most of you guys are used to seeing in my pictures.

A pair of hoops to accentuate my face.

I am stepping out of my comfort zone and trying out more colors. No more assumptions. On a side note if you haven’t read my post on assumptions click here trust me it’s a must read.

Do you have any colors you have sworn you can never have on? Let me know in the comment section.

HOW TO STYLE FLORAL PENCIL SKIRT

Hy Guys….

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend? It’s a busy weekend for me, but it’s going on smoothly.

The floral print was one that hit the runway so hard in spring of 2017 and I must say it has made a major comeback this season. Designers like Loewe, Emilia wickstead, Chloe and Rocha lit up the runway with their beautiful floral prints.

As you can see I have on a high waisted, below the knee  pencil floral print skirt. what I really love about this skirt is that the prints have practically 80 percent of the color pallets which are really trendy this summer. Click here to check out the summer color pallets for 2018. The floral print doesn’t require much effort for it to stand out, it automatically speaks for itself.

I paired my skirt with a white high neck sleeveless crop top to give me a chick look. The floral pencil skirt can also be styled with a denim top, a white T-shirt or what ever color of shirt you prefer as long as the colors match. If you want a more classy look, throwing on a pair of blazers with heels would do the trick.

As much as I love my sneakers I love me some pair of heels also, so i took pictures with both just to see what it would look like and honestly I can’t say which I prefer more, I really loved both looks.

COLOR PALLETS FOR SUMMER 2018

I think at this point I can boldly say summer is finally here to stay, so while we enjoy and appreciate this amazing weather we have been blessed with, here are some colors you shouldn’t shy away from this season. A touch of any one of this colors in your wardrobe can make a big difference, you would agree with me that colors such as black, grey, deep brown e.t.c can get boring so spice up your wardrobe this season with the latest trending colors.

Lavender: this color will dominate the whole summer season. Romantic yet elegant, you can wear it on a masculine suit or a gown. There is a lot of beauty and calm attached to this color.

Purple: embodies the balance of red’s stimulation and blue’s calm with a sense of mystic and royal qualities, purple is a color often well liked by very creative or eccentric types and is one of the favorite colors of this season. The color purple is specifically associated with royalty and the nobility, creating an impression of luxury, wealth and extravagance.

Bright Red: A totally bold, entrancing hue. The color red is a warm and positive color associated with our most physical needs and our will to survive. It exudes a strong and powerful masculine energy. It is one of those colors that captures the attention of people when you walk by and it’s definitely a trendy color this season.

Yellow: The color yellow isn’t one of my best colors but I am beginning to develop some kind of likeness for it, it is definitely one of those colors that do not require any effort for it to stand out. If you are looking to have more fun with your outfits this summer try the color yellow.

Sky Blue: This is one of my favorite colors and I can definitely say this color favors both the extremely macho man and the super feminine woman.

Green: This is one color you don’t see people wear most of the time, but I am glad it’s on the runway this season. Green promotes a love of nature, and in my opinion the color green speaks of growth. Show the color green some love this summer.

Blue: one of those colors I get really attracted to, so it’s no surprise that it is trending this season.

Thank you so much for stopping by I really appreciate your love and support.

STYLING MY CHECK SHIRT WITH TORTILLA COLORED SHORTS

Hy guys about a week ago I wrote on the check pattern trend if you haven’t seen that please click here to view. I decided to join the check pattern gang, I paired my shirt with tortilla colored shorts with sneakers and heels so you guys can decide whichever you prefer. I really love the color of this shorts, I am not a fan of belts which is why I did not use any together with the shorts coupled with the fact that the short sits comfortably on my waist.

I rolled up the sleeves of my shirt to give me a more edgy look.

what do you think about this look? How would you style your check pattern shirt or dress?

CHECK PATTERN FASHION TREND 2018

Hy Guys…

Growing up in Nigeria all we wore to school was check material, I wore check material all through my years from primary to secondary school, little did I know the school system was getting me ready for a trend in the future 😂😂😂.

The runway this season is full of the check pattern and I am totally here for it because it is bringing back memories. Talk about shoes, blazers, trousers,bags, shirts, dresses, caps you name it.

The check trend isn’t for the ladies alone, it is also for the guys. You can decide to underdress or overdress depending on the look you are going for.

Do you have any check patterned cloth laying in your closet? Please don’t let it go to waste because it is check season and this trend isn’t going away any time soon.

SLAYING WITH SHADES

 

hey guys….

Summer is around the corner and you know what that means, the sun is about to be up in full force. I am here to get us all prepared and to protect our eyes from the sun. I believe sunshades are one of those accessories we all should have, i don’t have one and that is because I have never been lucky getting shades that suit my face perfectly but you know what, now that I have done my research and I have been able to understand the shape of my face getting sunshades will no longer be a problem.

It is really important you know the shape of your face because that would enable you get the perfect sunshade or even prescription glasses that would suit you perfectly and keep you looking fly during this season.

Let’s look at the different types of face shapes and the type of glasses that would work perfectly on them

1. Round shaped face: This type of face has softer edges or angles, with slightly wider forehead, cheekbones and jaw.

Recommended glasses: a rectangular or boxy frame would help balance out the roundness of your face.

2. Triangle shaped face: This face shape is widest at the jaw and narrows gradually through to the forehead I.e large jaw, small cheek bones and small forehead.

Recommended glasses: frames with detailing on the upper portion are preferable, go with glasses whose width are slightly wider than your jawline. Brow line or cat eye frames would do the trick.

 

3. Square shaped face: A face with defined edges, wide cheekbones, forehead and jaw.

Recommended glasses: glasses with soft lines will balance out the edges of your face. Round shapes, tear drop shapes and aviators are recommended.

4. Oval shaped face: It’s been said that this is the most versatile face shape to fit. They’ve got Slightly wider cheekbones and a gentle narrowing at the forehead and jaw.

Recommended glasses: any kind of frame fits perfectly on this face type as long as it is not as broad as the broadest part of your face you are good.

5. Heart shaped face: wider at the forehead and gradually narrows through to the jaw.

Recommended glasses: round frames, cat eyed frames, square shaped frames would also work well on this face shape .

6. Oblong shaped face: elongated feature from forehead to chin, some have prominent chin.

Recommended glasses: add more width to the face by using frames with more depth.

I hope this simple tips help

P.s don’t hesitate to add to the comment any face shape I did not include.

 

Keep slaying 😀😀😀

FIERCE

Hy guys hope you are all doing great?

This gorgeous evening dress or dinner gown (which ever you prefer to call it) is actually my first ever dinner gown ( for real).

Honestly I just love comfort and I have always felt putting on something like this was just a bit too much for me, the dress dragging on the floor, having to raise it up if I needed to use the rest room, fear of stepping on it and tripping over lol .

ALL ABOUT COMFORT

Hey guys

Welcome back to yet another fashion blog

Suede is that material I don’t think I can ever get enough of, when I like something hmmmm let’s just say I make sure I get enough of that thing. I have on a sleeveless midi length gown.

If I can’t play in it, relax in it, walk freely in it, if I have to keep adjusting things then that dress isn’t for me.

Cinnamon brown is a color which looks great on almost all skin tones so don’t be scared to step out of your color comfort zone

I wanted a comfortable but still elegant look, so I paired it up with heels ( heels always makes a difference)

JUMPSUIT

What do I wear ? I don’t have what to put on…. that is me almost every day of the week and am sure most ladies would agree with me on this one. look no further because jumpsuits are the way to go. Most of us have problems with how to pair our outfits but with jumpsuits you don’t have to worry about that, you basically have a top and trouser sewn into one piece.

Whatever look you want to go for, I feel you can never go wrong with a jumpsuit.

I saw this exact style on line and I decided to get one made for me.if you are looking to get one designed for you don’t worry I got you the link will be down.

Notice the buttons on one arm, you can decide to unbutton them if you want.

It also comes with a belt which is detachable if you are not about that belt life.

Paired my jumpsuit with heels and hoop earrings

P.s to my male subscribers get a jumpsuit for your girlfriend,sister,friend….they will appreciate it thank you on their behalf 😀😀😀.
