Lace Shirt Dress // These Shoes Pinch

I'm wearing this coral color lace shirt dress with this coral shift dress I've almost worn to pieces. Part of the beauty of this lace shirt dress is that it is versatile as I'm going to show you.
 I accessorized the outfit with a color burst coral-pink-green-blue pair of Fiore sling-back flats which I've eventually comfortably broken in. They used to pinch my skin at the back; above my heels. What's that part called, btw? They are a perfect 41 and fit nicely except for that small glitch. This colorful pair of flats comes through in a pinch; when I need a burst of passionate tones....reminds me of that friend who wouldn't sacrifice the TV remote, but will move the world to get you out of a fix even if they bite your ears off through the process.

I Like Your Sleeves // Words for Good

They say that sometimes when a person is silent it is because emotions steal the words from them. Beautiful words that are positive and good take the place of emotions that are hard to express. Sometimes,words just get in the way, we keep shut and let our actions speak what we feel. Other times,words just aren't enough to express how a course of events made us feel.


Words with the most quality, a lot of times, do not need to be exaggerated, but clothes......especially clothes with sleeves, they can be exaggerated to make the world stand still in awe. I like the length of these statement bell sleeves, they are not too long nor obstructive. They are perfectly designed for the pinstripe open-back blouse.
I'm doing a stripe and floral combination for today's outfit.

Part Two // Irresistible Me Hair Extensions Review

Irresistible Me Hair Extensions Review
When I reviewed the Irresistible Me Hair Extension from theSilky Touch line, here, I told you I’d be putting up a second review in two weeks, but it’s taken longer. Here’s the reason. When I first installed the clip in hair extensions this is what it looked like:

It felt silky. The color was perfect and blended well with the natural golden highlights in my hair, but it looked flat and scanty and I couldn’t accept that such a beautiful hair would flop at delivery. 
So, after my first wear of it which lasted two weeks I took it off, shampooed, conditioned, air dried it and stored it in the pack.
A couple of weeks passed and I gave it another go. And this time it turned out as beautiful as I had hoped and anticipated. See for yourself below. It got better with use.

It was fuller and much more natural looking than before. I chose the 16 inch length and the color Medium Brown in 140g. Now, if you want a voluminously fuller head you’d want to get more grams. The 140g I installed felt light and easy to wear. This time also I put in a few curls only holding the curling wand for 20 counts on each section because I wanted very loose waves, here below:
This is my hair after I installed the Irresistible Me Hair extensions
 I did a few sections at the back for longer, about 40 counts, and I can say that the extensions hold curls throughout the day. Also, from first experience I snipped off a section of hair and clip from the thickest piece so that I got a better fit across the breadth of my head (i.e, from ear to ear)
This is the snipped off piece.
This means that no matter the size of your head you can always reduce the breadth and adjust clips if you’re good with a needle and thread or with your hair dresser. 
This is my hair before I installed Irresistible Me Hair Extensions.

Disclosure: I received the hair extensions for free in return for my open and honest review.

Red Lace Dress // Words Our Way

I have a bad case of Baader-Meinhof. When a new word registers, I expect things to proceed like modern day Google ad, such that I will hear about the word severally soon. I turn on the computer and the word is there, on my phone it appears. It even appears as a new biscuit name in the neighborhood Mallam shop. Ridiculous. Before I accepted my case I had thought there was a conspiracy going on somewhere in the universe. But, it is what it is. Baader-Meinhof. Do you experience it? You hear or see a word or something and it keeps occurring everywhere. You know, like this lovely pair of 3D floral wrap around shoes will be everywhere on your screens. Don't fight it. Just let it lead you......to these shoes. Do damage. And do try to wear it many ways as I am attempting with this hybrid lace dress which I've styled before with an Ankara skirt for the weekend.
Ah, the weekend....seems like just yesterday.

10 Breathtaking Ways to Wear Velvet

No comments:

Ultra smooth velvet textures are in this season. Skirts, dresses, pants, leggings and even t-shirts are having a crushed or wet-look velvet situation. The fabric is super IN this Spring. It's a luxurious trend which has continued on from 2016. Scared? Do you feel you can't pull if off? or do you have a love-hate relationship with velvet or trends? Yo want to dip in your toes and avoid serious commitment, but you do want to be posh? Never fret. This soft pink camisole is just the right amount of elegance for you.
But, if you want to be the star, the attention-grabber then a red velvet dress, Velvet co-ord top and flare pants set and pleated midi skirts in silver, green or color blocked will be perfect for you.
And if you want full velvet outfit, but toned down and muted, then a simple apricot velvet t-shirt,  black velvet leggings or a brown pleated dress will be absolutely right.
Are you brave enough for the trend?

Pink Eye // Zaful Shades of Pink

3 comments:
Local Shop bought shirt and skirt / c/o Zaful shoes
I'm looking pretty in pink today with this vegetable motif paisley print long shirt
. I was tempted to wear it with a pair of white pants, but I opted for this flare white skirt and oh, the romantic touches this pair of rose petal wrap around heels add to elevate the outfit is divine. The shoes have green accents too in the form of miniature leaves. Speaking of vegetables, I've not been eating enough vegetables lately. Hmmm, can't be skipping my greens. I'm careful to say words that I'd have to eat back. In certain quarters I've been reckless with words. One day, they might come to try to choke me, but the beauty in life is that when our words return to choke us, we learn the effect they had and we try not to grow a vegetable garden with those words. After all, we're humans and we are wont to make mistakes.
So,
Are you doing your squats, minding your words and eating your vegetables ?

Olive Military Vest and Ankara Pants

No comments:

Reconciliation, restitution, forgiveness....it used to come easy for me, but it seems my brain chemistry decided it's had enough or maybe I've become a coward, fearing a repeat performance should I extend an olive branch. Well, I'm not afraid to wear an olive military-inspired utility vest over this pair of Ankara pants. I wore the mustard yellow lace crop top to brighten the lovely print on the pants that I've worn with mint green here. This was not the pair of flats I had intended on wearing, but I was out the door in a hurry before I realized I had donned my well beaten pair of tan flats. Not to worry though, the outfit turned out ok.  
I'm currently listening to Chimamanda's speech at a Ted Talk and she speaks things I relate with. For the longest time even though I have lived fully in Nigeria, having read tons of foreign books, I learned to think in foreign ways....not too much though because father (bless his soul) made sure to include tons of local literature such as Odenigbo, Toads for Supper to Passport of Mallam Ilia and there was this one about nwanyi gbaara afo onu e.t.c and we went home for masquerade dances and to fetch water in village streams even though we lived fully in the city. 
I'm still listening to her beautiful voice......Hopefully, we'll talk more later.
