Monochromes - Again

Striped! Take 2!

Hi all!

At this point, even I am ashamed of apologizing for long absences. I read a tweet the other day saying "are you really a blogger if you don't open every post with ...I'm sorry I've been away..." I found it funny and sad at the same time. I'm sure you can imagine why.

I'll be honest anyway. It's a struggle to curate content when it seems like your reach is dwindling everyday. Sharing and publicizing posts is frankly my biggest challenge with blogging.

There's only so much "Please Read and Rt/Share" that you can send out without feeling like a bother to friends and family.

I've come to understand however that it won't get easier so I might as well suck it up and get my hands dirty.

On that note, I'd like to sincerely thank you all for sticking with me through this journey. For checking in even when you're not quite sure that you're going to find something new. For engaging with me in the comment section and on my social media pages, I say thank you! You keep me going.

I did this shoot a couple of months ago and have sat on the pictures since then. Mostly because I wasn't sure what direction to make a theme off.

I've previously styled stripes on stripes here, and didn't want to do that again. I thought about a pajama style theme which is what I had in mind when I bought the fabric for both pieces but I still wasn't sure that I had nailed that. I finally decided to just share them and let you pick what theme comes through for you.

As you may have noticed over time, loose-fitting clothes are my go-to. Apart from the fact that I like to be able to eat whatever without worrying about a food pouch right after, I just do not like to feel like I'm tied up. One day, I was having a really irritable day. you know those ones when you can't quite put a finger to what the problem is but you find yourself snapping at everyone? It got so bad I decided to go home and take a nap. The moment I took my clothes off, I instantly felt better. They were too tight yo! True story.

My mum complains all the time about my choice of clothes which she insists does nothing for my amazing body. Hey! Her words not mine.

The year is almost over and I want to ask if you checked off all your new resolutions but I think I can hear someone asking me to keep my voice down.

I have a Christmas theme post like the last one here in the works, so stick around for that yeah? I also have a travel post somewhat like this one here which I intend to share sometime before Jesus comes.

How has your year been? Looking forward to a new year? Let's catch up in the comment section.

Until Next Time,
It's Tee

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, …
