It’s been a minute.
Sometime in December, I met a lady who I absolutely adore and advised me on savings. You know I am addicted to designer shoes and she said “Here’s the trick, don’t buy designer shoes at full price, buy them on sale”. I was like, it will be out of season and she said when you buy them at regular price, you still wear them out of season regardless. Guys, that was my lightbulb moment, and then I knew never again lol. So guys, I monitor prices on my phone, downloading boutique apps so I can get first dibs on my favourite shoes. That’s my secret. I bought this pair of Attico for 280 CDN. I came across the brand last year, owned by Italian designers Gilda Ambrosio and Giorgia Tordini and launched February 2016. Attico in Italian means penthouse and is a collection of standout pieces for the modern muse.
I wanted a casual look for Friday and decided to pair my denim with off-the shoulder striped top.
Have a great day:)
It was a 3 day weekend and it was amazing for me. I had an event on Saturday and watched Black Panther finally on Sunday and my Monday was just chilled. Have you watched Black Panther? I loved it and loved the representation of different African cultures. I didn’t dress up though, I just wore an all black dress with black over the knee boots. I highly recommend watching this movie if you haven’t seen it.
Last look I want to share. I have to say that this look in 2017 got me a spot on #HMGallery. I was shocked when H&M asked me if they could use my picture on their website, it was such a feel good moment. I paired this top with burgundy pants by a Nigerian designer. If you have noticed on my blog, I rarely wear red lipstick. Madam Glam contacted me and I chose the 3 lipsticks from the collection. I was a little bit iffy about cherry wine but picked it. I got the product and I couldn’t help but fall in love with Cherry wine. You can see more of the look below.
I am totally obsessed with the Paper Bag High Waist pants. It is a staple trend piece to have in your wardrobe. I love how chic and feminine they look when paired with a tank or even a button down shirt. The roomy pant legs makes me feel comfortable even though my waist is cinched (which I absolutely love). The paper bag waist pants is versatile and has always been in season. These pants can be incorporated into your fall wardrobe. The good news is that anyone can wear paper bag waist pants! They make you look instantly put together and mature, and they’re great for fancier occasions if you don’t want to wear a dress, or they can look professional enough for work. This look is definitely a work-inspired but you can dress it up depending on the occassion. Read more to find out how to wear paper bag waist pants. By the way, I have a behind the scenes video here
It’s almost the weekend here and I am so counting down. What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you say tulle? Yes I know, ballerina princess right?. The fashion crowd has definitely put a spin to tulle and makes the trend more sexy than girl. Sporting the look, you either see tulle top patched with florals and rocked with denim. Or you see the trend worn as a dress and layered up. The great thing about buying into this trend is that it’s the perfect piece to switch up as you like.
