Christmas Dinner – Sequin Blazer Dress

Tis the season to be merry and bright while wearing sequins galore and having a good night. For a Christmas dinner, its only right that I throw on a sequins blazer dress! I’m so happy the holidays are here! This is absolutely my favorite time of the year and I can’t wait for Christmas! I’ve wanted a blazer dress for so many years but couldn’t find one that spoke to me. When I randomly found this Endless Rose sequin blazer dress in Neiman Marcus, I knew I had to have…

Neutrals – Full Skirt

I attended a baby shower last weekend for the first time in 4 years. Seems like most people attend baby showers much more often than I do but I find that I end up celebrating nuptials much more than pregnancies. Roshelle is having a baby and any chance I get to wear a full skirt must be fully taken advantage of! But is it even considered a full skirt if its shorter than the typical full skirt? What I love most about this skirt is its velvet florals topped with…

6 Values I’m Keeping at 28

I celebrated my birthday while soaking in some sun in a Cali Swim bathing suit and cover up. This was by far the most relaxing birthday I’ve ever had. For the past 6 years, my 22nd birthday has felt like the best birthday ever (it was the never ending birthday filled with so many celebrations). Every birthday after that couldn’t compare as the pressure (that I put on myself) to exceed that birthday kept me from truly doing the most! This birthday consisted of some healing and reflection. Without further ado,…

Nigerian Independence Celebration – Ankara Dress

It’s been a while since I actually celebrated Nigerian Independence Day publicly as I find it easier to be in my own little world (which is usually my default). In my early 20s, I would attend the parades as well as the parties. While I didn’t partake in any parade this year, I popped up at one of the parties. Being the super last minute person that I am, I began making this dress the night before the party, even though I bought the ankara fabric a week before the…

Fall Wedding – Wedding Guest

I recently attended my first Caribbean-Chinese wedding and had such a good time. My brother’s best friend’s brother (I know that can be a tongue twister 🙂 ) married a Chinese girl and I’ve never seen him this happy! I usually opt for bright colors when I attend weddings but I wanted to change it up a bit with a maroon evening gown. The location was nothing short of amazing! I wore a Daymor Couture gown which was already sitting in my closet for months. The pleats could have either…

Sunday Funday | Classic Yellow Polka Dot Dress

Is it even possible to stop loving polka dots?! It’s such a classic print that I’ll never get over it! I spent a fun summer day in a yellow polka dot dress. With it’s fit and flare shape and simple midi length, I was able to go from brunch to a babyshower. I like keeping my clothes for (what feels like) centuries. Although I get rid of a lot of my pieces, a few items from my pre-teen and teenage years are still in my closet. Don’t get me started…

Forever Loving Culottes | NYFW | Dayo

I’ve always wanted super wide-leg culottes and with yellow being my 3rd fave color, I knew I had to snag this English Factory culotte for a day filled with NYFW festivities. Bandeaus always feel like the perfect pairing for high waist bottoms so I threw on a Victoria’s Secret floral bandeau with fringe earrings. I love learning about new brands so I had to check out Dayo Womenswear as it provides luscious yet simple loungewear. Created by Yolanda White in 2018 with a collaboration with Chilli from TLC, the collection…

Alexander Wang x Bvlgari Party | NYFW

As Alexander Wang mostly sticks to neutrals, it was impressive to walk into a room filled with pink lights as I entered the massive 5th Avenue department store of what used to be the Henri Bendel headquarters. With mannequins featuring the new Alexander Wang x Bvlgari handbag collection and the bar serving drinks in glasses that resembled Bvlgari’s perfume bottles, I knew we were in for a special treat! Performances by Rick Ross, Wale and Normani kept me turnt up. I thoroughly enjoyed this entire event as I felt like…

Brunching in Neutrals

If you’re not new to reading Befitting Style, then you already know how much I love brunch! Because I’m not always up for hanging out at night and dinner isn’t really my thing as I don’t eat much at night, Brunch is the perfect activity for me! For my recent brunch, I wore a printed metallic skort with a button-down top. Brunch makes me happy and every time I get to eat at Bonefish Grill, I get excited because they have the best mango mimosas and bang bang shrimp eggs…

Keeping Neon Alive

I’ve loved neon my entire life so the new surge of neon somewhat turned me off as many trends turn me off especially when its something I’ve taken part of for a long period of time. Part of me wonders if many will continue to opt for neon during the fall as fall tends to bring out many neutrals. I find it interesting that many switched out their neutrals for such bold, glow in the dark hues which would be the complete opposite of what they would opt for all…
