Last month we had a bloggers challenge to pull monochrome looks...I took this pictures and completely forgot to post them, my apologies. I went for a very simple look with an off white knit dress and matching pointy toe pumps and clutch bag
I added pops of color with the purple lipstick, citric orange belt with a corsage, which I wore at the back and drop cobalt blue earrings
The days that fashion overwhelms me and I find myself trying stuff that are out of my comfort zone....but then it would never be fashion wouldn't it?. It was quite a dull cold day so I decided to do a lil' bit of layering with little gothic accents
I L.O.V.E houndstooth print and been on a hunt for a skirt or short for a while and when I got it, I could not wait to style it. I went all retro with the black sweater and tucked it in since its super big. I complemented the look with a plum rich tone and added gold accessories. You never go wrong with red with black and white prints....so I added a crimson belt then finished if off with black leggings.
This shoes are so vavavum....I do not know what to call them but they are a cross breed of platforms with maryjanes. But I sure loved the polka dots.....Oh and they are super comfortable....they are so weird I could't help loving 'em and I thought they really complemented the hounds tooth print.
I kept the rest of my accessories minimal...
Checkered short- H&M
Knit sweater- Thrifted
Polka dot platforms- Ericos collection
Plum sheer shirt- Atmosphere
Brooch - Malaika
Red button earrings- Malaika
Have a blessed week,
How are you good people, am hoping you had an awesome weekend. Mine was quite a mixture of sorts but yesterday crowned my weekend up. I met my gals and its never anything short of amaze balls when we get to catch up and all esp since one of us just jetted back into the country from abroad.
I decided to do a lil bit of everything, color,demin, the sweater, nautical stripes.....
I love this tangerine capris.....and I paired em with this turqoise knit sweater that is quite my fave knit oflate
I had a nautical hi-low stripped shirt inside and it was quite chillly in the evening so the sweater came in handy and I totally forgot to take it off as i was taking the pics. I then added a neon pink scarf to add some color and ummmph to it.
And finally my geeks and a janelle monae inspired hairstyle, then my nude and white sling backs. And oh....not forgetting the teal purse.
My sweater is baggy and it looked funny when i tucked it in, but i did not want to belt it up so i added a brooch at the back.
On my previous post 'DRESSING FOR THE COLD PART1, I illustrated how you can wear your sweater with a long skirt. Well, this post is about the sweater and your denim jeans
Am not really fun of denim jeans but well you can always add some fun to them. I rolled up the ankles and wore this black ankle brogues to add some ruggedness and edgy to the outfit.
I like this turquoise sweater (I know i know.... am obsessed with turquoise) I can't help it. I made it a high low since the jeans are high waisted. This time i went with color to accessorise the sweater unlike my last post where i had bling on. I got this floral scarf and a lesso bow and a orange ring. little pops of color that add a difference. The colored bangles and the earrings with a chain tassel.
Then finally this white croc skin purse that i have been ignoring it for a while in my closet.
Oh my its been rainy chaos offlate and the cold is not making the blues better. Well i decided to show you how to look stylish in this cold weather. Starting up is DRESSING THE SWEATER. You can add a sweater to your ensemble and loook really chic in it. Take a look how i did it:
I paired up this navy blue high low sweater with this DIY turqoise green high waist trouser skirt. Initially it was a vintage dress but i decided to cut of the top and make it a skirt and voila! i came up with this skirt.
I had a hot pink vest inside since it was really off shoulder and i needed a popping color to add some ummph to it.
A slit always gives some sexy vibe to any skirt and i loved the one on this skirt, especially because i could walk in this pencil one.
Remember to always add some hot heels when u are wearing such skirts because you can end up looking frumpy in flats especially for the pint sized gals like yours truly here.
Remember to over accessorise your sweater. Add as much bling as you can
And finally i got this vintage Chloe bag. I so love the purple with the gold details then this gold peep toe platforms.
