Monochromes - Again

Pink Pastels x Sheye Oladejo

"...Baby, that we all want, we all need, fashion..." - Jon Bellion

Hello everyone! I recently got an offer for a partnership with Nigerian women-wear brand, SheyeOladejo.

They're especially known for evening wears, custom tailoring services and bridal wears. Their contemporary label is called 'Scqueeze' and this post features two pieces from their recent collection, 'Backbone'.

You'll see a lot more of posts like this because guess who is SheyeOladejo's muse for six months? Yay! Me!

Now, I've never really been a fan of pink. Probably because it's so soft and feminine and girly and I'm not really about that life. However, my prejudice doesn't stop me from appreciating the beauty that is pink. From fuchsia to its pastels like flamingo, rouge, crepe and watermelon; It is such a beautiful and flattering color.

My favorite ways to style pastels are; Monochromatic(which is different shades of one color), Mixed pastels(which would create a soft yet bold look), Mixed with neutrals(which makes the pastel piece pop) and Mixed with brights.

For the following two looks, I picked two of my favorite styles; Monochromatic and Mixed with brights.

Like I mentioned earlier, this is basically sticking to one color throughout your outfit. The co-ord set already set the tone. I added a pair of pink poms in a slightly darker shade to keep it going.

Mixed With Brights
For the second look, I added a pair of bright red heels to this pink skirt-set. This adds a little edge to the softness of the look.

There are really no rules to styling pastels because just about anything works. Do keep the following in mind though.

Accessorize. Ironical coming from me considering I don't wear accessories right? Accessories however, turn basic ensembles into statement looks and for a pastel palette, you don't want to risk looking washed up.

Don't overdo it. Keep your hair and makeup simple because pastel hues are soft and feminine. You don't want your makeup to overpower your outfit.

You can get both outfits and more via SheyeOladejo's Instagram page HERE, or you can send them an EMAIL.

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, …
