Monochromes - Again

Print Fever

"Buy less, choose well" - Vivienne Westwood

There aren't really any style lessons in this post. I'm sorry. I just want to show off this really, really, lovely (if i may say so myself) blue print maxi dress that was gotten from  Things Nigerian Love, here.

If you're resident in Calabar, you can also get it from Leyi Ush Style House, here

Because I am insanely in love with vibrant prints, I knew I had to get this dress the moment I saw it. Thankfully, my birthday was around the corner and it was graciously gifted to me. Thank you best friend! (Not you Grace, the other one).

Print outfits are defintely a must-have. While everything in fashion is constantly phasing out and phasing back in, you can always, always make a style statement wearing prints. They're timeless classics.

Also, with the right accessories, you can take a simple print outfit from a day wear to a date wear in a couple of minutes or less. So, Go Prints!

I was going to style a classic vintage theme from this dress; Scarves, aviator sun glasses, you know? Looking like old money. But, alas! I couldn't find matching scarves, I don't wear sun glasses and I kuku do not have old money.

Do you like this dress? Would you be getting one too? How would you style it? Where would you wear it to? Tell me these in the comment section.

1, 2, Ways To Style Your White Button-down Shirt

"Fashion is not necessarily about labels or brands. It's about something else that comes from within you" - Ralph Lauren
 I feel the need to apologize in advance for the number of Ankara outfits that you'll find here. After garri (well, any form of swallow really) and soup, my next favorite thing is Ankara, closely followed by retro prints.
In this post, we're styling a basic white button-down shirt in two refreshing ways.
Now, a white button-down shirt is a wardrobe essential. Like a little black dress or a pair of very flattering jeeans, it is a fashion must-have.
It is chic through all seasons, for all ages and it works for about just every event.
For the first look, I tucked my white button-down shirt into an Ankara pencil, midi length skirt for a tailored appeal.
This simple ensemble can work for the office on a Monday or a Friday as the case may be.
Aiming for a more casual feel in the second look, I decided to pair my white button-down shirt with a pair of…

3, 4 Ways To Style Your White Button-down Shirt

"Elegance is not standing out but being remembered"- Giorgio Armani
Because 1, 2 Ways To Style Your White Button-down Shirt was such a favorite, we're back with another one!
It can not be over emphasized. A white button-down shirt is the real deal. Its tailored shape brings elegance to both casual and formal ensembles alike.
There really aren't a lot of wardrobe essentials that we lean on more than this statement piece. I know I said that about the basic white tee and maybe a couple of other fashion items, but stay with me here. Okay?
This time I decided to take it up a notch (or I'd like to think that's what I did).
In the first look which is my favorite of the two, I have on an Ankara pinafore over my white button-down shirt. This had me reminiscing on my secondary school days  Funny enough, I couldn't wait to graduate from Junior Secondary just so I could get out of wearing pinafores. Now they're stylish. Yay! Fashion. 

For the second look which is…

Dressing Appropriately for Your Body Type

"The dress should follow the body of a woman, not the body following the shape of the dress" - Hubert de Givenchy
Hello everyone! Long time no see. I'm sorry, life has been, well, life.
Over the months, I've gotten E-mails with questions in the line of "Oh this looks so good, do you think it would look good on me too". Then, there's my friend and flat mate Ehimen who doesn't wear any colors except black because she thinks they''ll make her look big. I thought about these and I decided to put together a little guide to help you dress appropriately for your body type.
Now, essentially, there are four body types; the hour glass, the apple, the banana and the pear.

THE HOURGLASS You know you're hourglass when you're extremely curvy with a tiny waist.
Work towards highlighting your curves and not hiding them. You can achieve this via belts.
For bottoms, wear a lot of pencil skirts and wide-legged pants.

Wrap dresses are perfect.
For tops, …
