Denim on Denim
 Denim Pt II

Up until a few months ago my only use of denim was in the form of bottoms and maybe a jacket. Denim is becoming trendy again. I'm getting biker vibes, 70's feels and early 2000's tease from everyone and I'm loving it all! 

I've actually had this rule that if denim were to be paired they had to be close in wash. But when pairing this Love Buzz strappy bodycon set something told me to grab this baby blue denim jacket. I was doubtful but the white vans totally balanced it out.

And let's talk about this jumpsuit! If you follow on social media you've seen my love for wide leg pants grow, so when I saw this baby and had to snag it! There's something about the excess fabric and flare that makes me feel... sophisticated. And the hidden heel underneath aren't a bad touch either.

Mood on Kanye

Two trends I seen emerging are lace up tops and chokers. And I've jumped on both. The 90's baby in me has racked up so many chokers in the span of the past few weeks it's insane. And somehow this dress is giving my new found collection to shame. This lace dress has a built in choker! It has a sharp v-neck that laces right up and leaves you with extra fabric to tie around your neck.

This piece totally takes the stress of finding the right accessorizing off my plate. The sleeves have a bell shape which means no arm candy needed. And just when you thought the low neckline was enough the back gives the front a run for its money. If I was bold enough I'd turn it around and make use of some double-sided tape! Jk jk But seriously this dress is a wonderful combination of trend.e.g.

Old Habits, No Color


Shoes: Zara |  Bag: XXI  | 
You would think that this look was a product of Fall approaching. But alas it is not. This was my version of Summer brunch attire. My friend Olivia Frescura and I went out for brunch and of course we we're giving off slightly Gothic vibes. I could never shake the dark side of my closet. I prance around my room putting together my look and don't realized I picked up all black until I'm done. I then throw on a pop (more like a hint tbh) of color to make up for it. People have mentioned before that I dress like I'm from New York. Which makes me feel bad ass but also like an Adams family member -- no complaints here.

It's not that I don't like color. Hell, this summer I branched out and experienced wearing pink without one bit of sarcasm. In fact, there's a blue off the shoulder number on my clothing rack just waiting to be worn. What I'm trying to say here is that it's hard to break old habits but it's not so bad when you look good repeating them!

I was recently contact by StyleWe.com to review some of their items. I was excited to go through their inventory. This bomber jacket and camisole dress caught my eye so you know I had to style it for you guys!

StyleWe's is an e-commerce site all about having "Designers at Your Fingertips." They feature tons of independent fashion designers and are committed to providing shoppers with original, high quality, and exclusive items. Which means there is so much to choose from!

I'm in love with the concept of a source for quality designer clothing that isn't mainstream. With popular brands dominating closets everywhere it's refreshing to see and have alternatives for quality pieces. There are so many options on the site that you are bound to find a new favorite designer.

As cool as I may appear in photos I'm quite the dork. I tell the corniest jokes  this is an opinion seems to be held heavily with my BF because a lot of people think I'm funny but I digress  I'm kind of a klutz and I geek out when strangers make Doctor Who references. I say all of this to say that I don't follow too many trends. Mostly because I like to do my own thing but sometimes it's due to the little voice in my head saying "You can't pull it off."

So when the "Dad Hat" started having it's moment my bf bought me a few. This Kanye inspired "It Ain't Raplh Tho" hat was actually my first choice and I was excited.. until they came in the mail. I immediately compared my head size to the cap and felt like Bobby from Bobby's world (my favorite 90s cartoon as toddler). And the dork in me let them sit in my closet. But one day I had to say F*CK IT! And I look pretty dope if I may say so myself.

So moral of the story is... uhhh... don't let your insecurities (in my case outer dork) stop you from trying new shit. Sometimes you gotta have a Kanye confidence about yourself.

So  I love a good crop top. And body-con never does me wrong. So when Iya Ijebu (Ee-yah  Ee-jeh-boo) reached out to me to review one of their pieces I was happy to say "yes!" And I thought to myself... "Why talk about it when I can show this baby off!"

Iya Ijebu  (Ee-yah  Ee-jeh-boo) is a luxury retail store whose goal is to provide specially made clothing for Nigerian Women.They have plenty of high quality clothing and accessories for the inner "Naija" in you. And though I'm not of Nigerian decent I was definitely feeling myself in the dress!

The piece I'm wearing is called the "Oyin" Two Piece Bustier Dress and is amazing in quality! The dress is heavy but some how very light weight on the body.  The material is the right amount of snug. so I felt SNATCHED instead of suffocated. The cups in the top gives enough room for me to "flourish" but is tight in the right places. I've never had a body constricting dress this comfortable and fit this well.
