Powder Blue.

What I’m Wearing
Sweater ~ Old skirt (Similar here and here ) ~ Shoes (up to size 15!) ~ Choker 
Surprise!!! Its a new ‘do! Well, if you already follow me on social media then this is no surprise to you since I’ve been red headed for about a week now. I decided to try something new for Spring, hence the red hair, how do you like it? I am loving it so far.
Anyways, what else screams Spring like the color powder blue? There is just something so delicate and soft about it, just like the new flowers that bloom at Spring. I kept this outfit pretty monochromatic and added some statement heels for a pop.

Pinstripes & Parrots

If you follow me on Instagram, then you’ll probably already know that I wore this outfit for a segment on Fox 5 DC for the promo of Eloquii’s first brick and mortar in our very own DMV a few weeks ago.  Full midi skirts have got to be one of my favorite things in the whole wide world, I have an ever growing collection in my closet. I particularly like this one because it is a statement piece and such a conversation starter. 
Since pinstripes have suddenly become the cool kid on the block, I ended up with my very first with this cropped, tie front, pinstripe top and I gotta say, it’s pretty cool in my eyes too.

Remember the color blocking days? I do! And honestly I could never quite find the right colors that didn’t make me look like a baboon lol. Well, those color blocking days are long gone but there are still glimpses of it here and there in the fashion community. 
The first time I wore this skirt, I styled it with a sheer bodysuit and it was gorgeous yes, but I felt like it didn’t do anything to showcase the regality of this skirt. So this time, I decided on a silk camisole because what says regal like silk?

Oldies: Embellished Sweater & Knee High Boots

As much as we love it, it’s very easy for the mini skirt and thigh high boots combo to look very pretty womanish, quite unfortunate but true. But there are ways to work around this hassle, I have found that one way is to style them with a modest, free sweater or tee. That way, the only skin on display are your thighs. I tend to follow the old fashion rule that says if you’re showing skin on top, keep the bottom modest and vice versa. How do you wear the mini skirt and thigh high boots combo?

Faux Wrap Skirt & Patterned Crop Top

TOP ~ SKIRT ~ HEELS 
Happy Monday guys! Hope you had a good weekend, I spent mine working and resting in equal parts so I can’t complain.
As much as i love crop tops, it is becoming increasing hard to find the ones just show enough but not to much you get? Confidence to me is not about the amount of skin you can show off or the degree of body conscious clothes you can wear to show off your curves. Don’t get me wrong, I will show off my curves just as quick as the other girl but that doesn’t speak about my confidence at all because some of us are good actors. Confidence to me, is how you feel when you’re by yourself and when you look in the mirror. So, as much as I love crop tops, I tend to lean towards more modest and classic styles. I particularly love this one from Eloquii for that very reason. Another thing I love is this faux wrap skirt, a classic that will always be in style.

LAST HOORAY: BLUSH PINK LIGHTWEIGHT COAT

I am so happy that Spring is officially here (now someone just needs to pass that on to mother nature) but the weather is still on the cold side 😦
I am trying to enjoy it for as long as it lasts because we are on the final stretch but the warm weather cannot get here soon enough for me! 
But I decided to do one last hooray with one of my fave lightweight coat from Boohoo. Lightweight coats are a good transitional piece for Spring/Fall, and I am wearing a sleeveless turtleneck which is another one of those. I am no pro at layering but pieces like this make it very effortless. 
I styled them with my all time favorite jeans of the winter which are these ones from Rainbow. I’ve been thinking about trying the Good American cofounded by Khloe Kardashian, has anyone tried them? Thoughts please…

CROWNED

Hey loves! I took a trip to my native land Nigeria in January and of course I had to stock up on my traditional wear. Since dramatic sleeves are huge right now, I decided to design an asymmetric, dramatic sleeve dress (which was originally a maxi, but I took a pair of scissors to it lol).
This printed fabric is called Ankara and it is generally worn by most African countries especially West African countries. It comes in all kinds of colors and prints that you can possibly imagine and I mac currently wearing one by a company call Da-Viva and I love their designs because they have such bold colors and prints. 
The head wrap is not only a fashion statement but also a reminder to wear your crown and wear it proudly. I have found that in life, the crowns placed on you by people can be taken away but the crown placed by God is forever and can never be taken away. So wear your crown proudly, knowing that no matter what you are a queen!

WILD ONE

Hi guys! The weekend is almost here, one day to go! Hopefully nature will have mercy on us and shine some warmth down this weekend instead of cold breeze.
So, its another sheer bodysuit? Yeah I admit I just styled one here but cut me some slack will ya? I love sheer bodysuits. But you might have noticed a pattern, which is my favorite way of styling them i.e wearing something underneath lol. This time I decided on a bustier underneath this animal spotted sheer bodysuit which is hands down one of my favorite bodysuits. 
I also styled this old skirt sometime last summer here and haven’t had a chance to pull it out since. Since the bodysuit is so badass, I toned it down with this faux tutu skirt and the wide gold belt for a very feminine look.

HORIZONTAL STRIPES

Recently a fellow blogger posted a bomb picture of herself slaying a horizontal striped outfit and stated that she was once trolled for wearing stripes and I said what?! In what day and age? Maybe the 1800’s? If you are viewing this post right now and you have that misconception, please discard of it and I hope this post will further help to remove that misconception from your mind. I am wearing horizontal stripes and no, I do not look bigger or wider. If you are reluctant to try horizontal stripes, I think this co-ord will be a good starting point for you because it has blocks of solid color that might make it a bit easier.
When I picked up this set, Vivi said to me “Cool, I can’t wait to see how you style it”. And I said to her “I can’t do much because it has already styled itself”. Which is very true, this is one of those outfits that have done all the work for you, just a pair of heels and you will be looking well dressed. 
I on the other hand, being as extra as I tend to be, added an extra oomph with this rhinestone choker and heels.

LACE & PEPLUM JUMPSUIT

Hi guys! Thank you for stopping by my little space, if it’s your first time here don’t forget to subscribe to receive new posts in your email! And if you’re an oldie, thanks for coming back!
So, I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with jumpsuits honestly. I love how they look on other people but if you have a tummy like I do, you already know that most jumpsuits were not made with you in mind. While I don’t mind showing my guts and glory to the world, I also like to dress in styles that accentuates my figure but can easily be shapewear free. 
Peplums are a must for any woman who wants to accentuate her waist and maybe conceal her tummy area just like in my case. Those days when you are going to that party with the intent to eat your heart out, a peplum dress should be your go to. 
Now let’s talk about this jumpsuit, I love that it steps up from the usual boring peplum and adds drama with the hi-lo hem and the lace bodice also give it an extra jazz, making it dinner wear appropriate. I kept it pretty simple with a simple, clean belt and nude pumps.
