Ugly Sweater Party – Pink Fuzzy Sweater

So I ended up with a not-so-ugly sweater at the ugly sweater party. After shopping a super sale at Bath and Body Works, I had to walk through Sears to get to the parking lot. While rushing to the car, I stumbled upon this sweater that looked much uglier on the hanger. The Ugly Sweater Party was starting in a few hours and I still didn’t have an ugly sweater to wear. I bought this sweater and figured I’ll make it work for the party. Ending up with this sweater…

DIY Crochet Jacket – Outerwear

I’m not exactly sure if I should call this crochet item a jacket, a sweater or a coat but nothing gets me more excited about style than DIY projects. I’ve known how to sew for as long as I can remember and learned to crochet at the age of 12. I find that I appreciate the items that I create much more than the items that I buy in stores. I wish I knew how to write an understandable pattern so I can help others to create but I did…

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…
