So this is what I wore on today’s adventure.Β Β

Travel Diaries- Igbo traditional Weddings

So one of the main reasons why I made this trip was because my older sister was getting married. Having her traditional wedding to be exact.Β  I was so nervous for her because this was soo not her thing.

After much planning the day came, it went well and I am here to tell the story. πŸ˜„.

Can’t remember the last time I had someone doing my makeup but it felt so good.
To top things off I loved the end product.

The great things about Nigerian traditional weddings is that we have somethings called  ‘Aso ebi’. This was the perfect excuse to get a dress tailor made just for my 6ft tall self.Β  For a change a dress made perfectly just for me . I wanted this dress to be soooo shapely, it looked great and very flattering but I couldn’t sit down because it was so tight. πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ. That will teach me.!

Hope you like my dress. My tailor Joy did a fabulous job. She made this dress with just 3 yards of fabric.  Ok ….

See you on the next post.

Shoes for sandals -Travel Diaries

It’s taken over 12 hrs to get to my destination Abiriba in Nigeria.Β This is a small village in Abia State and am proud to say that this is where am from!
Home is differently where the heart is. Feels so good to be amongst old family and friends. I have met up with people who I have not seen for years and the catch up has been real to say the least.

Follow my travel diaries over the next few days. The Internet situation is real but bare with me as I try to keep a daily log of outfits and activities.

A-Z A/W trends 2015 – Redefining Red

I have been obsessed with the Marsala colour tone, but it not enough.Β 
Yes Red is very sessional and with Christmas just 33 days away this is a good time to talk all things Red.

This season why not be bold and step out in

ALL RED

image

image

I would definitely experiment with different shades of red crimson, ruby, wine red etc and style this look as follows.

image

Varying shaded of Red makes this look a little easier on the eye. … I thinkπŸ’­πŸ’­

Hope you enjoyed this post
See you tomorrow.

A-Z A/W trends 2015 -Over the knee boots

Yep! !!!!!   You guessed it.
Some call it Over The Knee Boots, others OTKB, or even Thigh High Boots. With high or low heel, leather or suede. Whatever YOU call it this is a must have for this season.

Below are some of my favourite for 2015

image

I am still madly in love with the colour Camel and I am swaying more to the suede/ suedette look. However, peep toes get me each and every time.

I am 6ft 1 and I say yes to some heel with this trend.

One thing I have noticed about these over the knee boots is that it’s hard to find a pair that fits my large calf’s and my thick thighs πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ

I featured the above boots from New look in my anatomy of the 70’s fashion post. They were great for my big calf and thighs and they are available in a UK size 9

A-Z A/W trends 2015 -Never Too Jewelled

You can never be too jewelled…. or can you.?

We see necklaces , earrings, bracelets and broches taken to the next level this Fall.

image

I really like this over size earring and necklace from Miu miu..Β  This would complete any outfit.

This season they say more is less but I think Givenchy took it way out. Let me know your thought below.

image

I can’t help but think the accessories here are rather distracting from the gorgeous dressesπŸ’­πŸ’­

What do u think of this look collage. . Yay or Nay ?

See you tomorrow For trend “O”

Hey Guys,

So we are half way through the A-Z A/W 2015 trends.Β  A huge thank you for all your support and time spent reading my posts thus far.

Ok, we are talking about the Margot Tenenbaum trend . This links in well with the “G” of geeky goes chic post . However Margot deserves her own blog post as her look inspired several designers such as Gucci and Lacoste this season.

Firstly you will need to get the hair cut right. Straight cut bob or lob with the trademark hair clips.

The long faux fur jacket.

image

The loafer shoes

image

The right clothing include tennis dresses , pleated midi skirts. You see were we are going.

image

Top hold tote bag

image

And you can’t forget the black eye pencil to complete the look.

image

There you have it. The very trending Margot Tenenbaum inspired look.

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s  ‘N’  trend.

See you then.

A-Z A/W trends 2015 – Look no hands !

The designers have gone the extra mile to emphasis long sleeves with bell cuffs and balloon sleeves.
As a tall women long sleeves are sooo hard to come by. I am so ready to embrace this trend.
More so as temperature drops my fingers need as much concealing as possible.

I say Yaaaassss to longer sleeves.
Have you seen any stores stocking this trend? Please share below.

See you tomorrow πŸ’‹πŸ’‹
