Monochromes - Again

Something for Valentines

"What if all I am is the broken lyrics of a broken song on a a broken record held gently in the broken hands of a broken man? What if despite all that I was still the song that made you smile" - Tyler Knott Gregson

You know, I've never really understood the fuss about Valentines. I mean, why wait for one day out of 365/366 in a year to show love to a loved one?

Lol! I'm joking please. Does anybody have a spare Valentine that they're not using?

Now, is it just me or has just about every girl become obsessed with being in a relationship? It's okay to be single guys! There's no need to rush. Relationships will happen or not. And honestly, that's okay.

Until very recently, I didn't think myself to be an emotionally expressive person. I'd see my friends "ooh" and "ahh" over surprise gifts or visits, acts of service from their significant others and I'd just be like Nah! Non! Rah rah! Not me!

At this point, I think I'm even more emotional that everyone of them and frankly, that's not helping my street cred.

I've realized that words of affirmation are a pretty easy way to get to my heart. For some reason, I just want to hear how much I mean to you. Right after that is quality time then physical touch. I don't particularly care much about gifts; probably because, half the time, I don't even know what I want but don't let that stop you, go for it.

My outfit today is an oldie but hopefully, still a goodie. I did this shoot sometime early last year when circle skirts were still a thing and didn't quite know what to do with it. Styled with a basic black corset and maroon poms, I figured it just might inspire someone's Valentine outfit. 

So, what are ya'll doing today?

Happy Valentines,
It's Tee


  1. I've never really seen the fuss either girl but this probably has to do with my usual relationship status. Though like you words of affirmation has to be my love language and gifts too, especially those small gestures. Love this look, especially your skirt.

  2. Very lovely Tee and I want that outfit!!!!Get in touch

  3. I don't get the whole fuss too plus I'm not obsessed with being in a relationship. Sometimes I want a boyfriend and sometimes I'm like nahhhh. Everybody likes to hear nice things about themselves from someone else and who doesn't love gifts. Love the look you kilt it as usual. Thanks for the other day too Tee you made my month ��

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, …
