Tee's (Not So) Instant Guide to Finding Your Personal Style II

Well, I did promise that this would come in good time. So, yes, I'd like a cookie. Thank you!
I'll try to keep this one short. If you read the prequel, here, I'd like to think that you found a style template that describes you. If you didn't, don't panic. That's why we're here.
Style is personal. When you think about it, there really are no rules. It is not about trying to be like someone else; taller or curvier or any of that. It is simply taking all that you have and portraying it in the best possible light.
I know this is a lot more daunting than I have made it sound so here are a few ways to actually define your personal style and well, keep it refreshing.

Understand Your Body; Absolutely important. So important that I dedicated an entire post to it here. Understanding your body and dressing for body type is a tenet that we absolutely cannot compromise on. You want to know what your best and worst features are so you can dress to accentuate or camouflag…

Tee's (Not So) Instant Guide To Finding Your Personal Style 1

Hi every one! Doing good? I usually get a lot of questions and comments like "Oh Tee, you have your style figured out. How do I create my own signature look?"
After thinking and thinking ( Read as researching and researching some more), I've put together an instant style guide to help you come into your own fashionably.
This is going to be a two-part post. This one is going to focus on eight style templates. I've compiled them in such a way that everyone should belong to at least one group. The plan is to help you identify your current style because, frankly, everyone already has a personal style.
The second post which will come up same time, next week, (I promise. Don't roll your eyes) will help you dress in a way that is peculiar to your personal style.
It's going to be a pretty long post, but hey! this took me weeks to write so stay with me.
Vintage; Vintage fashion is basically a combination of fashion from the 20s to the 70s. If you find yourself very in…

Taking Stock X MayRush

Hi everyone! Slowly but surely we've come to the end of the first half of 2017.
How are ya'll doing with those resolutions eh? So far, so good?

I decided to start this segment called "Taking Stock" which will itemize a few things (under simple headings) which I have been up to during the course of the month. The plan is to share it at the end of every month and also double it as a style post.
I hope you will enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
So, currently, I am;
Wearing; A lot of Ankara. But then again, aren't I always! I love how surprised people get when they see how versatile Ankara can be.

Reading; An Abundance of Katherines by John Green, 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher and The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. Usually, I start a number of books and switch between them depending on my mood.
Eating; A lot of Pounded yam and Egusi soup. As usual! Also eating a lot of Nkataa's peppered local chicken. Hopefully it doesn't tear whatever few teeth I h…
