A slighty windy andcold Sunday afternoon, had my day planned out to meet with CJ to take a couple of pictures for our  blogs, and have lunch.

I got ill and couldn’t wear what I had initially picked out. With the intention of staying super warm and stylish, I quickly grabbed my turtle neck by Axcess .I could only find an exact one on Thredup but here is another similar one from Khols Here and it is super thick and warm.

Despite my situation, I was bent on staying happy as always and dressing up is one way to keep me happy.

A Closet Sale Find.

Hey lovelies, how are you all doing? I am curious to know what your weather feels like wherever you are, because mine keeps surprising us with a minus feel.

Today’s blog will be pretty basic. First off, if you haven’t yet subscribed to my blog, do so by hitting the follow button below on the right side of your screen, let’s stay connected and for those who recently followed my blog, WELCOME to the family my name is Joy and I would continue to keep things as simple as possible.

5350ee7a-7edd-4563-ab41-1a6e7778bd44

I went for a bloggers closet sale event and was able to pick an item from all the closets. Typically, while I shop, I envision how I would style or pair each item while sometimes, I buy an item because it’s nice and has styling potential.

2a8a89f1-a0a1-4f33-886b-99dab7cc05fe

I was able to snag this plaid A-line mini whowhatwear  skirt from @thedandyliar closet and its super soft, nice and has these bold brown buttons on the side. Found  the exact same skirt, and you can shop from  Target Here

 

Did I say how much I love the mix of cream, black and red? These colours are usually one of the best combinations that would help when choosing your colour of accessories.

Because I  have an ankle lenght boot, I decided to style this skirt with my mock turtle neck top by H&M and you can shop  same type Here , also paired with my Vintage lenghty sweater. The details and placements on this sweater is so unique.

Today’s blog will be about how I spent a relaxed Sunday evening with a friend CJ.

8654495c-0b4e-4878-8a8d-51ce9afeb71d

Meeting CJ for the first time in person although we had opened communications via instagram and text messaging, I decided to go with a monochromatic look. It was one of the easiest outfits I put together in couple of minutes.

508cdd92-6252-448b-9a59-1b0e27469b48

Weather was pretty awesome hence my open toe shoes from Aldo which I have had for quite a long time now.

CJ planned the photo session which turned out great, we tried out scenes to achieve great pictures and finally ended the evening by having a wonderful dinner at Stella Modern Italian Cuisine with a heck of catching up and getting to know each other better.

Choosing a montone outift is one easy styling techinique you can adopt in making your get-ready session fast and simple. I love this sweater I got from  Burlington because its simple and it has those cute crossing at the chest area, making the neckline stand out. Got it off the racks but I found something similiar with a different colour Here

bd7ad30f-3c8c-45ec-839b-7a1e830b4faa

I love the gold cuff details on this shoe, gives my ankle a stronger  grip and looks stylsih. Choose this colour of shoes, to create a bit of contrast to the whole blush pink look. This is quite an old shoe, but if you desire to have a shoe  with almost same ankle cuff look, I linked this Aldo shoes Here for you to shop.

da91a6ff-b997-4842-b9a0-a1bd460664cf

This cute little bag I got as a birthday gift few hours ago, was my go-to pick for this look. It is an Aldo crossbody   bag which you can shop the exact same one Here

Love the Burgundy and Blush look. Burgundy is a winter/fall colour which can also be worn in summer.

23c118a9-31ef-464f-baf0-4742b29e0622

Pants I also got as a gift few hours ago, very light weight, pleated with mini draw belt aroung the waist.  It’s from Ross and it’s a good choice for spring and summer!

When this post goes up, I will be 12 hours away from my 30th birthday!!!!! Super excited that I have learnt from my 20s and ready to discover more in my 30s.

b2a72c85-4fb5-442b-b2c2-d10144467359

I only started blogging September of 2017, started with baby steps and through these periods, I have gained more insight on how to better share my views on fashion, styling and beauty. In life, you never stop learning, there is room for massive growth and development, there is a lot of potential we all have that we need to key into. So far, I am not exactly where I would love to be, but I am delighted that God brought me this far.

4d5de1b9-e21e-4027-ad75-0168724ff495

If you follow my instagram page, I did a story previously on how I styled this Cardigan differently, but this time, I dressed it up. Dug out these my River Island shoes (old) that I have had for about 4 years now, styled perfectly with my neon cardigan.

abf77a60-80f7-4b6c-a8d5-3e761ce65b58

You desire to wear a leggings but not comfortable with your butt hanging out, you style with a long Tee or Shirt, in that way, it covers your butt area. I chose a black long shirt to go over my faux leather Aldo leggings.

c24b01ba-a5c1-41fb-a21e-eab64531a5f0

Most times I get so complacent with my pin earrings, but I had to consciously put on those earrings from H&M and you can shop for something similar Here

ad2a6177-1df9-423b-8747-99de9e2c4d32

It has been a period of growth for me, both spiritual, mental and physical. I have actively excommunicated things and people that are not healthy for my mind, body and soul. I have conciously built and still building good and healthy relationships, disregarded things and people that have no substance to my personal and subsconscious growth, I have continued to search God’s word and His purpose for me here on earth. 

bc8bfe07-8801-4072-bc13-2ca9addb6e62

For this  my new age, I pray I continue to be self aware of who I am, the things I can acheive if I set my mind to do, realise that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13), and I have the spirit of God in me to make be, things that need to be.

Hose and Pumps.

Hey lovelies, I am back again and this time, I am introducing one of my long old style tip. If you haven’t yet subcribed to my blog, hit the follow button below on the right side of your screen and let’s get connected!

8e094300-84e3-47d2-b7c6-4f981c5e89fa

It has been a long tradition to style outfits with panty  hose and open toe shoes. With the air becoming more cold and windy, a panty hose is one way to look stylish without wearing Jeans or Pants.

168ca443-3a6b-4419-8a91-a93ace9888d0

Most times, I double my panty hose if I feel the need to due to the temperature. The thicker ones are usually soft and they keep you warm through the day.

My colour block sweater was a way of avoiding an all black look, because I love a bit of colour on my outfits. You can also decide to wear boots or flat shoes with your Panty hose, and not neccessarily an open toe shoe (sandals).

It was such a gloomy day but I had to take these pictures for the blog and I am glad I did!. These block heel shoes are one of my comforatble shoes, and I wear them when I am avoiding a black pair of shoes but at the same time don’t want a bright coloured shoes.

My Satin shoes by Report in Lawren design can be found Here  but sadly it is out of Stock.  You can always save the link to know when it is back in stock.

09beb7c2-20b8-43b8-a919-b196bca302a8

Topped up my look with my Vintage Carmel Coat by Rothschild, to blend with the colours on my dressbarn sweater (old) and my JustFab  mini black skirt (old) but you can find something similar Here

83d07b6c-a36f-4ebf-b54c-e47d52f8cdbf

If you read my previous post on Layering, this is one technique you can use for layering. A termal underneath your sweater, a couple of panty hose, your skirt, sweater and Coat.

It was a bad weather day, didn’t go to work, had the day to myself and I decided to try on different outfits then it morphed into me doing videos and taking pictures for my blog.

 

It amazes me how I pick outfits and accessories from different stores and they go so well with each other as though they were bought together. I got this Faux Fur Vest from Marshalls and it is a design by Ci Sono by Cavalini Love the color and its extremely bright and warm.

f79a751e-44bd-4e6a-9abb-db90864444e0

Styled with an all black look to create that contrast. Paired with my cute little bag I got as a gift and my Aldo nubuck shoes.

Black & Whites are the easiest to style.

You can literally thrown on any color on a black and white outfit and it would work just perfect.

ba0b567f-3fc3-4f6e-a042-4c989555cdfa

This is for my ladies who still love to rock their ripped jeans. This a hybrid of casual and classy because of the Faux Fur Jacket, I love the color of this jacket because it is a deviation from black but still on a dark shade.

 

This Jacket is a Vintage find by Peyton-Marcus (I intend to sell this soon, been worn twice for just photoshoots, still in good condition, keep your eyes peeled for when it is up for sale).

It is another episode of closet styling with my friend/client. I used different pieces from her closet to make an outfit.

 

 

41D59A96-3568-44E2-8094-54996A7DD273

A sweater Kimono, a black tank top, a mini skirt, a piece of jewelry, belt and a cute bag to make the whole outfit. She has had the skirt for quite a while I couldn’t think of ways to style it. I quickly took all items from her closet, pieced them together to style the skirt.

Having a clothing item for a long time doesn’t necessarily mean it can’t be worn or styled differently.

How accessorizing with a belt can make an outfit look completely different & stylish.

The cute sweater-kimono is from Dillards a similar red skirt can be found here from Charlotte Russe bag from JC Penny, a Liz Claiborne crossbody bag which has something similar to the link above.

Closet Styling.

Yes Hello everyone, I am back and this time, I am featuring a friend/client of mine. Hope you all are doing great and enjoying the festive season.

Meet my Friend/Client Nardos.

I was super excited that I got to re-organize and style her closet. After I was done with that, I helped pair and put a couple of her outfits together. She was slightly confused on how to style her sequin little skirt from  Forever21 and there I was, quickly picking individual items from her closet to achieve this look.

3AB492D4-C183-45AD-B6FD-13C083B20634

I aimed at achieving a simple night time look with her mini brown Faux Leather Half Moon bag and jumper from Forever21

31954F92-A78A-4024-929D-BC5A9240B1B9

I gradually built up the entire look with her wedge middie heels to keep her comfortable and a black leather jacket to keep her warm for the night time. This whole look can also be worn for an event or better still a Christmas party without having to do much.

315DEE6A-999C-45A8-8663-FE30DE442F9E
It is all in the Details!!!!!!

7228C727-6A35-4BDB-85D6-B017E1D01C31

The biker leather jacket just gives an edge to the entire look. You can pair this look with a black or whiter  Blazer Jacket, but I had to work with the items from her closet and she was excited I got to help style her sequin skirt.

I also did a little switch on the shoes and bag which would be appropriate for hanging out at Bars and Clubs on a Friday Night.

7ABB80DC-892E-4837-9954-C6217F57613F

Paired this look with her black purse by Kate Spade where you can find something similar, and an ankle length  boots, giving her a stylish and chic look.

Mercedes Benz of Oklahoma City had their annual Christmas Party yesterday and I thought I should roll out in a Cream Top, Black Pleated Pants and a VINTAGE coat by Betty Rose.

4BA383F7-FD85-4E01-9A2B-D8DDF958C080

My Black Pleated Pants by Catherine Malandrino Same Here is extremely soft and comfortable, and I knew the pleat pants and lace top was a great pick, with a clear pointy heel and a glittery gold purse to compliment my entire look.

9AA64DE3-E978-427F-8E14-B72EDCF6B5AB

My Red Coat, lol little red riding hood is a Vintage find, perfect for the holiday season, very stylish and unique, with the faux fur to give me a cozy feel. This excellent Vintage coat is by Betty Rose, designed in the 1960s!! I am so glad I got my hands on it. It was a lucky find and it costs nothing compared to the price I see on  Here

C5F2852B-C228-485C-89B9-4A0F705C91A1

You can find most Gianni Bini tops in Dillards Here

Let me lead you into a few tricks I used for my top, to create the waist line. I have this cream ribbon lieing around my house which came with a winter blanket I bought a few months back. When I tried on my top, I knew it needed more concept, so viola, I used the Ribbon on it!

Purse is a Carvella design by  Kurt Geiger, which you can find something similar Here  without the glitters though. Shoes are from Fashionnova, and you can have a quick buy Here . It’s my all time favourite pick that goes with any coloured outfit I throw on.
