Lady In Red

IMG_5889I have been MIA for the longest time, i don’t know whether this happens to every blogger or its just me but believe me, i needed sometime to figure out how to recreate my blog, apologies for not giving a notice that i would be gone for some time. But Lots of things been happening all this time I’ve been away, from grumbling about the mistakes i have made in my life, the opportunities i recklessly lost to the best moments and greater achievements, but well… lets keep the nitty-gritties for some other time. 

There’s nothing more eye-catching than the color red, especially a long red dress! It’s classic yet bold, symbolizing love and romance.,there’s a hue to compliment every skin complexion. Red is one of those universally flattering colors! Red long dresses are extremely versatile and ideal for a variety of occasions. If you want to look sexy and stand out, consider a sleek, long red dress with a high leg-slit.IMG_5886IMG_5834 (2)IMG_5885IMG_5929IMG_5877IMG_5853Location: Golden tulip

New Beginnings

Happy New Year!! We made it to see 2017. What a blessing! Although its cliché to say things like “new year, new me”, I always find a sense of renewal and inspiration whenever a new year rolls around. It’s just something about feeling like you’re starting fresh and with a clean slate that really motivates me to become better. After all, life is all about evolution and we should constantly be becoming better versions of ourselves anyway.

So let’s celebrate new beginnings! Whatever plans you have set for 2017, my hope and prayer is that you seek them and see those plans come to fruition. I encourage anyone that is thinking about starting something new to just go for it. Let’s make 2017 the year of action so that we can start to see the fruits of our labor. And of course, let’s make 2017 the most fashionable year yet!

Boyfriend Shirt

So we ‘borrow’ men’s clothes. (eye roll) So we like to wear their tees and shirts. (eye roll) SO WHAT? At this point I’m practically ready to raid all my friends’ closets. A shirt per male specimen should be the general rule in any group of friends. Rebecca Do you second me on this?We should all shake on it and get on with our fashion lives. The good thing ladies is we don’t need no man for this trend, unless of course we want to do the trend per se, spend nothing on achieving the look, and nail it 100%. Hence the two ways in which Boyfriend shirts trend can be done: we either buy menswear inspired shirts in a few sizes up, OR we simply borrow from the beautiful boys in our lives. God knows shirts are their uniforms, might as well capitalise on those,Just saying…..

But for this case,didn’t grab mine from anyone,I purchased it and what really drew me to it was the grey color since am trying to change my closet to pastel colors and earth tones. I didn’t want to add other colors so I paired my grey boyfriend shirt with light grey jeans and brown loafer shoes.

Have you ever hi-jacked ur boyfriends’ clothes?  Share with me in the comments box.

Beige becomes Art

Am I the only one who has been going crazy for beige and nude colour pallettes lately?The winter whites phenomena is catching on for many good reasons. First off, beige and nudes are very delicate and feminine, adding that soft and ethereal quality to any look. It’s very subtle yet elegant and classy.

Secondly, it is a a new and refreshing option to the expected all black everything look.


It also looks great on all skin tones when done perfectly. Flesh tone outfits in nudes, beige and pastels have looked good one everyone from Angelina Jolie to Lupita Nyongo’o. I have been obsessed with pastel colours and it’s tricky to pull them off without looking washed out. So execution counts big time when wearing flesh tone colours and nude on dark skin tones especially.

What are your thoughts on this?

No to waste 

One of the things that I love to do when styling my looks is layer two elements that are inherently opposite yet can still work together. After all, fashion is supposed to be fun and every now and then you have to try some new combinations.

So with this outfit, I layered a long open black dress that I purchased but was a size smaller and wasn’t fitting right,but as mama taught me,”never to let anything go to waste”,I thought using it as a throw-on would be a good idea,as you see,the dark blue jeans and the dress work well together even though they are opposites.  Also, the front zipper bodysuit that exudes lusciousness is a great staple that can be worn by itself or as a layering piece. 

You can  always make something work.

Literally My Style😘

Welcome back from the long weekend.  It’s so far the longest one we’ve had since the year began,(correct me if I’ve forgotten). I hope y’all had fun especially my Muslim buddies who were celebrating Eid al dha. One would think I actually did much but waaah, spent it with my family despite the plans I had made,(typical me).

If you know me,then you know blazers and jeans are “literally my style”. It is satisfying for me because it’s the closest I can have to looking formal taking into account that much of my work is creative,and always in the field.  I can wear them 24,7,365, and trust me,you won’t get bored each time you see me. You can acquire that by having different kinds of Blazers from the plain ones,to the striped ones,printed or even florals ones,you will be taken aback by how a blazer maximizes your look without adding much effort,(I can never have enough of them). This is also accentuated with the kind of accessories you layer your outfit with that determine whether it’s casual or formal. Add heels or pumps depending on how convinient it is for you and call it a statement look for the day. 
            Keep it simple,keep it chic!

                       Honey bunnies,

Make or break your wardrobe when you add dimension to your look by accentuating it with fashionable accessories. If there’s anything that can take your wardrobe from simplicity to amazing in a matter of seconds, it’s timeless pieces such as a watch and bungles. Then again, you can never go wrong with that perfect pair of earrings or retro-chic pair of sunglasses. There are endless options to choose from that will suit everyone’s needs, from the fashionista to the outdoor-lover.Add a touch of flair to any outfit when you add a dapper gold necklace or stackable bracelets. Sometimes the smallest touch of jewelry can take your wardrobe from workaholic to downtown chic on those days that you need a quick wardrobe change.

        Accessorize it when ur not sure what to wear.

Thanks for stopping by!

                     Love Cate.
