Outfit Post

A client called and asked for some tops she can use for the office and she called some really colourful colours and i thought hmm it most be a fun workplace.

This is one of the colours she picked which happens to be one of my favourite colours and yes it’s as scrumptious as it looks. I actually got the inspiration from pinterest and i decided to add the sleeves and go with a high neck which i love.

I love tiny details that’s why i gave it a dash of gold buttons with white details, and the little peak at the back.

Here is a work day option paired with a navy blue A line skirt and the second is paired with a fun skirt.

Afro Chic Jacket

image

I love jackets and blazers but unfortunately we don’t have the weather for it here in Nigeria because it’s mostly warm or hot days and the cold doesn’t really call for the heavy pieces but during the harmattan and cool summer days this can be worn because it’s lighter than the usual jacket.

This is the Afro Chic jacket from my 2015 Collection where i showcased at Abuja Fashion Week, i styled it on the model with ripped jeans to give it that edgy look i love.

image

The second look i create was over our tribal print dress to show there is nothing like too much print if it’s done right.

image

The third look a friend of mine Zainab bought a pair and sent me a picture of how she styled it, I love how she did it because it further shows the versatility of the jacket from modest to vampy depending on how you feel.

So what do you guys think any wonderful styling tips i can try out will love to hear your suggestions.

Simi high waisted skirt

Today it’s Simi’s turn, i actually heard the name loved it and decided to honor it with a lovely piece hence the birth of Simi.

Simi is a high waisted skirt with pockets and a high low hem which gives it that simple edgy look i love so much without trying so hard.

Someone commented on my last post about pairing trendy pieces for the office with a white crisp button down which i love so i decided to pair the Simi skirt and i loved the effect, what do you guys think any major suggestions?
Disclaimer only the skirt is mine.

HAPPY MOMENTS

image
I am the one bent over like i know what I'm doing lol

I really love fashion you should hear me talk about it i get so excited, my eyes lit up and i can go on for hours discussing the structure, cut, fluidity, intricate beading or embroidery of a particular garment it gives me such a rush.

I remember when i was in secondary school how i always use to sketch at the back of my notes that even upto today my friends still remind me of those days. I have the passion what i need now is more knowledge and experience which is something I’m planning for in the near future but for now i learn slowly before it comes.

Early this year i got to design a few pieces and this happened to be one of them, this is when i am my most happiest creating a whole look i got a friend of mine beadsbykuby to make some jewellery that compliments the dress because it had silver threads woven into the fabric i thought that shade of beads was spot on. I knew i wanted minimal makeup which my friend mdazzle was able to achieve and the lovely Mimi brought my creation to life.
This was one of my happiest moments this year because i never thought i will be in this position of making my dreams come true gradually it makes me so hopeful for the future.

OOTD

Actually this was what i wore on sunday when i went to see my friend Aisha, the weather was fabulous and cool that day so i opted for a Polka-dot empire  maxi dress that i designed, i usually don’t like any shade of green but i love this emerald colour it has a certain maturity about it that i like. I decided to give it a pop of colour with this really really light bolero. I had a really comfy outing if i might say.

This was a comment i made a week ago on http://www.haniiiifa.com in regards to her post ART X FASHION X CULTURE .She wore a really sick blue wide leg pants that i loved because i have been obsessing over them lately, i have been planning to make a pair for myself but i have been so busy lately.

image

The wide leg pants is a trend i can get on board with, it’s quite comfortable, looks classy with flats or heels and it goes from day to night. Give me a pair of free pants, skirts or dress and we are friends, fitted pieces are ok but just like there are cheat days in dieting so also in fashion.
Ps. I really do feel you can show up in them anywhere.
