Black & White

Hello lovely people!

Here we are at the beginning of yet another week and I wish a prosperous one filled with joy and blessings.

I am always on the look out for a good pencils skirt; I saw this one and thought it was nice so I went ahead and ordered it. I am so glad I did as the fit of the skirt turned out to be just perfect! The skirt was lined and I had to take the lining off to get it to fit, which is what I do with most items I buy with linings anyway.

I paired the skirt with this cream top that I really love, a plain white top but the sleeves make it so much more than a simple white top.

I am a bargain shopper, I don’t really tend to spend much item of clothing. I buy on sale, buy when it’s on offer or buy from inexpensive shops or stores. I splurge on shoes and bags instead. My thinking is that you can get plenty of wear out of bags and shoes, whereas with clothes they can get ruined, go out of style, you can put on weight…

What type of shoppers are you? Let me know in the comments section.

Flare Affair

Happy week-end folks!

Flares, they are everywhere right now… on sleeves, on pants, skirts, shirts, everywhere and I just love them!

I have a couple of bell sleeves tops and i purchased this one back in January from Zara to wear with a pleated chiffon skirt but ended up wearing the skirt with something else. But since I love mixing colours, I thought grey and burgundy would go nice together so I took this fishtail skirt and wore it with the top for a double dose of flare and voila!

Block heel sandals are also very in this season and I’m working towards investing into more flats. This pair is one that I really like and it comes in 3 different other colours.

Maxi Dress

Hey guys!

I hope you are all doing ok.

I have had this dress for 2 years now and I never really got the right occasion to wear it. Last Sunday the weather was just perfect for a maxi dress so I took it out and wore it church. Oh my! I got so many compliments from people, that I regretted not wearing it sooner lol.

Dress comes in 4 other colours and I am really tempted to get it in one of the other colours.

Gingham & Denim

Hello guys!

Gingham is so hot on the fashion scene right now and I am falling in love with it more and more!

This skirt is one of my latest additions to the growing gingham pile in my wardrobe. The skirt is very flattering and versatile. I love that I can dress it up or down.

I decided to wear it with a white plain t-shirt with frills on the sleeve and these gingham shoes that I have had for a while now. I added this super cute denim jacket on top for a casual chic look. I will definitely be styling this skirt differently in the days to come and I cannot wait to see what I can come up with.

Is gingham a trend you will be following? Let me know…

Ankara Feel

Good day to you lovely people!

The weather is brightening up here in London and it feels great!

We all know Ankara or African print material has been so hot in the fashion scenes for a few years now; so when I first saw this set I instantly got attracted to it because it reminded me of Ankara.

Because I love wearing sets together rather than separately, I purchased the skirt first then got the top afterwards but I will definitely also wear them separately, the skirt with a white top probably and the top with a pair of jeans.

Paris is always a good idea

Hey folks!

We have made it to the end of the week yeaaaahhhhh!!! the weather here in London has been very funny and unpredictable so I don’t know what the week end has in store for us.

Paris, a beautiful city that I visited last month for a friend’s wedding. On my last day in Paris I had a bit of time to kill before catching my train, I opted out for this shirt dress. You all know my love for this type of dresses.

The material of the dress is very nice and soft, it’s so comfortable to wear and the flower pattern screams spring, I went with yellow sandals this time but you can wear it with black, green, white shoes even….

Shoes are a very old pair from KG, Here is a similar one that I really like.

VB X TARGET

Hey friends!

How’s your week going so far?

Not sure whether you knew this, especially those of you in the UK and the rest of Europe, Victoria Beckham released a collection in collaboration with Target (the second largest retailer store in the US). For every fashionista, at least for myself, this was a dream come true! I mean who in their right mind would mind owning a piece of clothing from the ever so stylish Mrs Beckham?!

As soon as I saw the preview of the collection, I knew what I wanted for sure!!! And I planned to shop from Posh Spice website which was our only  option here in the UK. So on that Sunday, I barely slept kept on refreshing the page of her website and to cut the story short when I got access to the website everything was sold out!!! Nightmare…

You are probably asking yourself so how did you end up with the stuff then? Well, I have connections to the States which came in very handy, I tried over 5 times ordering from the Target website and even gave up at one point, until I finally got through and got 2 of the sets I really wanted.

I’m wearing the Calla lily set here and I’m so glad I got this, all the trouble I went through was so worth it!

The collection is now on sale and can be purchased Here

For the love of midi skirts

Hey Friends!

Here is to a fantastic new week and more blessings.

I wore this to church yesterday and I just love how this whole outfit looks. I love midi skirts, I just love how it enhances my figure and makes me look slimmer and taller, not that I need to look any taller than I already am lol, this particular one was a winner as soon as I saw it, the mixture of colours, the pattern on it, I just love everything about it and this will be a keeper for years and years.

I played with the colours on the skirt as far as accessories were concerned, opting for red shoes and a blue bag but to tell you the truth, this skirt can be worn with so many other colours that I cannot wait to style it again and again.

Red Lace Dress

Hey Guys!

I hope you are all doing ok. This dress was meant to be part of my valentine’s look book earlier this year; but unfortunately my brother died and it threw every plan out of the window for a while. Life goes on and you learn how to deal with the pain but you never forget the loved one that is now gone forever! I sometimes lay in bed looking at his contact on my phone, thinking whether or not I should delete it, but I feel like deleting it means that I am erasing completely from my life and I do not want to do that at all! I look at his picture and run my fingers over and over his face trying to feel him and I try very hard to remember his voice, his laughter, remember him and each one of the memories I have of him I will forever hold tight! Love you forever bro…

Now, unto this dress… with lace being hot right now, this dress was a perfect choice for me to wear on a date or to church but I would put a cardigan or a blazer over it for church. The detailing on this dress is just amazing and I love the fact that the straps are big and that the cleavage is not too revealing. I added the gold belt because I felt like the dress was a bit plain for my liking… Red is definitely a colour that I don’t mind wearing over and over.

Gingham Dress

Hello there beautiful people!

I hope you are all doing ok. I come to you with gingham today, this is a trend that has been so hot on the fashion scene that I couldn’t resist it myself. I do try to stay away from following trends as you sometimes get stuck with items that go out of style and you can’t wear again! It has happened to me before so I am careful with what trend I wanna go for and follow.

This dress actually reminds me of my daughter’s summer school uniform lol but to tell you the truth as soon as I saw it on the hanger in store I didn’t even think twice I picked it up and went straight to the till. It actually not only goes with gingham trend but also with the flared sleeve trend! How could I possibly resist?!

I wore it in Paris, 2 week ends ago, for a walk in the park with a friend and family and it was just perfect for the occasion; I can’t wait to wear it again and style it differently.
