Statement Sleeves!

Hello beautiful people, welcome back! I hope you all are doing great. To subscribe to my blog, kindly hit the menu button above and let’s stay connected.

In celebration of Black History Month, I decided to go back to my roots in Style.

African prints are the most stylish, elegant and vibrant fabrics I have ever seen! I’m fortunate enough to be Nigerian and I get to explore and create impeccable looks using African fabrics.

Not only are they unique in their textures, patterns and colours, they are of high quality. Their versatility cannot be overemphasised because they can be used to make simple to classy to elegant wears.

The focal point are the sleeves, they are dramatic and stylish. They add that flair to the whole outfit, making a simple little dress stand out.

These African fabrics can be mixed with various fabrics to create looks. The sleeves are made of organza mixed with the traditional fabric. They make the whole look stand out.

These fabrics are not particular to Nigeria as other African countries have their own unique prints and designs. For the most part, generally they are classified under the large umbrella of “African Fabrics”

To shop these fabrics or ready to wear items like this, visit JobimClothing , you truly want to be adorned and be part of a country that is rich in culture, people, food and textile.

To shop this exact dress, visit Ruchne to place your order.

I will forever be proud to be Black and Nigerian! I hope you did enjoy this blog post, don’t forget to subscribe as you leave your comments and suggestions.

Out for a coffee, discussing that deal and signing off on contracts? This is one way to look stylish and appropriate for that occasion.

Styled this Houndstooth Faux Fur jacket from Burlington with a black mock neck top, from  H&M red pants, black ankle boots by Kenneth Cole and a purse by Steve Madden

It is a look in between business and chic. You can decide to style this whole look with pumps or stiletto, depending on your desired look. I loved styling it this way for a slightly edgy look.

Sure got lots of compliments on this look while the shoot was on, I guess I did an excellent styling job. The jacket speaks class and sophistication, the top is simple, pants are stylish, purse and boots unique to make the whole look great.

This look will most certainly get you the deal signed in your favor.

Not too much going on, but simply stylish for a business brunch.

It’s funny how I am African but can’t stand the heat wave here in America. It is humid, and super uncomfortable. I am 100% certain at this point that the sun and its humidity is definitely different than Nigeria.

Due to the discomfort summer brings, I decided to incorporate light weight skirts into my wardrobe for summer. If I need to wear trousers, I gravitate towards Palazo Pants or Culottes.

This is an old skirt from seasons back I got from FOREVER21. Pretty sure it’s out but I will link something else HERE HERE

I was going for a Tan and Cream look, so I styled each individual item with the aim of achieving the color scheme. Shoes are STEVE MADDEN and you can shop same shoes HERE

This statement necklace is a THRIFT find and it’s ANN TAYLOR!! going for $4!!!! The price at which I got it for is incredible, that’s why I love thrifting because it is a challenge for me to find quality items without a cost.

Top is a FOREVER21 (OLD)which works as a staple piece in my closet.

A beautiful yet windy Easter Sunday, I spent half the time controlling my hair and hoping the wind doesn’t blow away my wig away! lol. With no clue on what to wear to church, I wanted something light and easy to throw on. In a second, I grabbed the top and pants, not knowing how I was going to style them yet, put them on and I said hmm why not go for an all yellow tonal look!!! Bam I paired with my shoes from Aldo , my Target Bag and my Earrings.

I hope everyone had a pleasant Easter celebration with friends and family. For me, it was a very chilled day, went to church, got home, spoke to family back home, ate lunch and spent the rest of my day watching a series ” The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” I recommend watching it.

The Wind was crazy!!!!!!!

The Top is a set from a Zaful Outfit I got about two years ago and the pants I got as a gift and I believe its from Ross mixed both together to achieve this look.

The Streets and Fashion.

Hello everyone, welcome back. It is officially Spring today as I compose this post, so I am aware that we will all be excited about the warmth we have now.

Saturday morning, CJ and I decided to take the streets for our photo session. The first couple of hours was a hassle because we had chosen Brick town here in Oklahoma City, little did we know that it would be packed full with people because it was a beautiful warm day.

dsc_5963

We took it down to the streets, with a number of people walking around, road blocks and people staring, we kept doing our thing. At first, I was a little uncomfortable because I have never gone out out to take pictures in a busy City where people are watching. After a while, I became confident and didn’t care, walking and flipping my hair across the streets.

On to this Ralph Lauren Blazer! It was the focal point of this shoot. I chose to go with an all white look, to help accentuate the Blazer. I love this long-line Blazer because it has an awesome cut, the side pockets, the detailed gold buttons, on the sleeves and front area. I linked a couple of long-line blazers here Theory Super-Cinch Fremont Plaid Long-Line Blazer through Neiman Marcus from Shop Style Collective . This Anne Klein Bold Stripe Blazer Jacket is similar to it and you can get it from Nordstrom Rack Here

Stacked with a three tier necklace I got from Charlotte Russ (unfortunately they are closing down) hoops and my purse as the accessories.

3DA809BF-951D-4B25-BF0C-E71F3DCF70CEIt was a nice and sunny Sunday afternoon that could easily pass for summer CJ and I met for lunch at Cafe Kacao  . We had an hour plus wait for a table so we decided to hit Downtown to take some photos.

CJ found this nice spot with beautiful art work called  Atlas obscura .Excited about the weather change and hopeful that it had come to stay, Wednesday went downhill with the crazy icy weather.
