Monochromes - Again

Styling Wide Legged Pants

Hey guyssss!!!


Between last year and now, I have found myself subtly but surely growing into wide legged pants. I suppose that subconsciously, I have always loved them but as with other weird outfit choices that I am into, I didn't want to be the only one wearing them.
The truth is that it is relatively easier to wear and style palazzo pants but when you have an affinity for these types that don't fit and flare typically, it is a tad difficult to find a balance.

However, I made a promise to wear what makes me feel good regardless of trends and patterns. In that vein, I have since sewn about four pairs and when Omon of Belois Couture graciously gifted me this set, I was beyond ecstatic.

Styling it was relatively easy. Being a two-piece, I didn't have to worry about what to pair it with. I simply put on a pair of mules and pulled may hair back in the hopes…

Birthday Behavior

It's my birthday and I'll cry if I want to... Heh!

Making Ankara Work for Work

Hi guysssss!
How you doing?

Seeing that I almost always wear Ankara, I was somewhat skeptical about doing an Ankara themed post. But, I've realized that common place as it is to me, it isn't the same for everyone else. I've also found out that there are quite a lot of people who love Ankara but still struggle with incorporating it into their daily work style and so on.
Following this, this post on how to make Ankara work for a Monday and a Friday was birthed.

This is the second part of my collaboration with Omon Isinugben of Belois Couture. Catch up on the first one here.

Thankfully, gone are the days when you immediately thought of old and dreary patterns whenever Ankara came to mind. Now, we've seen Ankara become such a vibrant force to be reckoned with in fashion spheres all over the world. We've seen celebrities wear them in ways that are nothing like what our parents and grandparents used to wear in the days of…
