Collaboration with to save: Styling an off shoulders Bodycon dressCollaboration with to save: Styling a Bodycon dress

For the last item, I picked from Tosave.com, I picked an off shoulders burgundy dress. I chose it because of its figure-hugging made and the pleated details at the front and back. I also liked the knee length.

Burgundy is one of those colors you can hardly go wrong with.So instead of a little black dress why not try a little burgundy dress. Below, I linked some good finds too, xx

Collaboration with tosave.com : Styling a dress shirt

Following the previous post, Here is the second item I chose and styled from Tosave.com .

A shirt dress is probably one of the easiest items to style as it can very versatile.It can be worn as a shirt first, then a dress or layer it over o under anything. This particular from Tosave.com is 100% polyester and I am wearing a size 10 here as I prefer the looser fitting.

Share with me how you wear your Shirt dress during winter.

This year again, I attended Africa Fashion Week London which is a global platform for African inspired designers.Having  showcased over 850 emerging designers & exhibitors, from Africa, Europe and America

When I started attending, a few years back, it was mostly for entertainment purposes but now that my styling work is getting more and more established:

I am attending Africa Fashion Week for:

  1. Meet and catch up with my fashion friends
  2. See what’s trendy or will be trending
  3. Discover and connect with new designers
  4. Do research for my next big write up
  5. Get more designs for my future lookbooks.
  6. Or simply network with the “who is who in the industry”

 

On the picture above, actually featured on their newsletter (below) was the situation of catch up

Summer wedding outfit
 I had the pleasure to slightly stressed about what was going to be my Sumer Wedding outfit again this year.Throw back to last year, what stroked me then, was how everyone was so concerned about the color and the style palette they were going to wear.To the point, one of my friends who was also an invitee to the wedding, spend the night before the wedding at the tailor’s studio, because the dress she decided to wear was not fully sewn up to her standard.
When it comes to looks and styles, especially for Summer weddings, Most women tend to opt for a flowery, sparkly dressing.With quite delicate colors. Pale and creamy colors are also quite popular. Oddly, last year I noticed a lot of black, to my big surprise actually, because I didn’t’ even know wearing black to a wedding was allowed…I personally know I couldn’t, especially for a day time Summer wedding.
Fast forward, for last weekend wedding, I was determined to stay away from the wedding trends I noticed so far.But here was the dilemma: I didn’t want anything sexy nor anything too tight or too short.I wanted comfort, prints, and colors.So when I stumbled upon this skirt while shopping, I knew it was the one.Though a very casual skirt, I had to find a way to make it look like I was actually attending a wedding/ glamorous event and not just a day out with the girls.
Summer Wedding Outfit
Finding an appropriate top was the challenging part because every other shirt just made it look even more casual.Until I found this printed blouse.
So Here was the final look where Oasis dots skirt met blue sky prints blouse from Warehouse with the beloved golden Prada shoes. Comfort was a 10/10 and we danced happily ever all night.
Ps: Please share with me what are your go to wedding outfits for different seasons.

By the way, I vlogged throughout that day, so please subscribe to my Youtube channel to be notified when I upload the video.
