What I'm Wearing
Dress (Custom made in Nigeria) ~ Shoes (Smash Shoes) ~ Bag (here)

Hi guys! Happy memorial day and so sorry I've been MIA...let's just say, plans are being made and big things are coming! 
So, today's look is my go to dress of the Summer y'all. Easy, breezy beautiful is my MO right now since it's about to be HOT. I had this dress made in Nigeria and I must say I love it so much, I decided to share.

Textures: Printed Bomber & Striped Skirt

Skirt (sold out) similar here and here
Shoes (goes up to size 15!) here, animal print here
Bag (sold out)

Happy belated mother's day to all the mothers out there! I'll be celebrating with you one day lol. 

So, I have a thing for prints and stripes especially when it's done right and I would like to think that I did it right in this outfit. I picked up this bomber jacket recently despite my inner battle not to, since I already have quite a collection of bomber jackets but obviously I lost that battle since this printed beauty is sitting in my closet as we speak. 

I knew I was going to style it with stripes because of the striped sleeves, hem and neckline and I love the complexity yet simplicity of this outfit.

So, here we are with the final look from the Simply Be formal wear collaboration. For this look, I chose something a bit on the simple side which is great for laid back occasions like a bridal shower for instance. This dress is super cute and sexy at the same time, definitely not an feat to accomplish. But I love the empire waist and the intricate bodice. It really is a very chic but comfortable dress fit to dance the night away in.

Look two from the Simply Be formal wear collaboration features this amazingly gorgeous beaded maxi dress. This maxi dress is really unlike any other beaded dress i have ever owned. The detailing is very precise and eye-catching. Plus the blue is very striking so you will definitely stand out at any formal you wear this to. I styled this dress with some gorgeous jewelry which I borrowed from my mom and simple silver heels and clutch. I felt like a million bucks in this dress thus the million buck smiles. The flutter sleeves give some added glam and practicality if you don't want to show your arms.

As for sizing, I went with a US 16 and i will say it is definitely true to size since I am really a size 14 and thus there was some give in the shoulder area which I remedied by styling it as an off shoulder dress instead.

As Summer draws near, so does party season with weddings, prom, dinner parties and so forth and if you're like me, you've been browsing your favorite stores for the perfect dress for a formal event. Well, if you haven't checked out Simply Be, you definitely should. I am collaborating with Simply Be to bring you three of my favorite dresses for formal wear. For this collaboration, I tried to pick items that show variety in terms of something that can be worn for prom, wedding or just for a formal dinner. 

Kicking off this collab is the most glam dress I have ever worn. Honestly, this dress is definitely wedding approved. Whether it be your wedding, vow renewals, rehearsal dinner or reception, this dress will more than live up to your expectation. The sequin detail overlay bodice is so gorgeous, and the long hi-lo hem is such a plus as it hits right at the ankles and then flows behind you perfectly. This dress is lightweight and can definitely be packed with no hassle. I paired mine with a faux pearl collar that was gifted to me by a friend. Everyone around must have thought I was doing an engagement photoshoot because i kept getting the "awwww" smiles lol. Also, this dress is beach wedding approved!

As for sizing, I am wearing a US size 16 though maybe I should have gotten a 14 since I had a little bit of give around my bust area but then again, I am not very busty so take that into consideration when ordering.



Daring Darling

What I'm Wearing:
Duster (not new, similar here) ~ Jeans (here) ~ Bodysuit (here

Following in the theme of the previous post, I am working with both old and new items in this post. My satin duster was from Summer of last and I paired it with a pretty new bodysuit and destroyed jeans to polish off the daring darling look.

Hello world! Happy new week!
I came to a decision this week regarding my blog. Whether we bloggers like to admit it or not, we sometimes cave to the blog pressure. I don't mean this in a bad way but the reality is that we sometimes do things just for the sake of our blogs and one of those things is buying clothes. Ok let me make this specific to myself, I have found myself buying somethings that I don't really need just because I want to take pictures with it and post it on my blog. Not that I do this all the time, because the things you see me wearing on my blog definitely make their rotation in my day to day life. But the point I'm making is; if I were not a blogger, would I have bought that? Maybe not. When I started my blog, I started with the intention of documenting what I was wearing to classes in college and it has since evolved from that. Especially since I do not wear street clothes in my career life but wear scrubs all the time. Now my blog is basically a documentary of looks that are meant to inspire anyone visiting this page so maybe one day when you're getting dressed, you'll think about a look you saw here and decide to try something similar out. I remember getting dressed for classes and pulling up Gabifresh's blog just to see what she wore lately just for inspiration before I picked out what to wear. 

So in that note, I have decided to consciously ask myself before making any purchase if I would have  bought it if I wasn't a blogger. I know some of you are like "duh", and like i said, I don't do this often but it does happen. So, from now on my looks might not be available for you to purchase or it might be from eons of years ago but it will be items that I wear all the time and there will be a lot of repetition going on. Just a heads up!
