Mellow mustard

Hello dearies! Hoping everyone is doing great! Today's outfit is a bit in a dilemma of being either contemporary or vintage. But I think I tried to make it look more contemporary. 

This gorgeous heavily beaded mustard dress caught my attention as soon as i saw it online. In fact it gave me sleepless nights until I laid my hands on them{lol}. I had been thinking of the perfect occasion to rock this dress to so as not to look overdressed. Gracefully I had a surprise 30th birthday dinner at a five star restaurant and I was over the moon that the perfect occasion showed up.

This dress already has a breath taking mustard color, pretty black beads and the latest fashion trend of high slits. Considering all the attributes of this dress, I decided to tone it down as much as I could. The dress has a deep V neckline so I had to wear a black camisole underneath so as to keep the look conservative and not show off anything....lol. I paired the dress with a ankle strap sandal, the gold heel detail on the sandal just makes it super cute. I ensured my toe nails had a nice polish on aswel.

Tempting Fuschia

Mi dollies! I can't help but imagine y'all are doing very fine! Today's post won't have me saying much, I promise! It's a really simple one! This is one of those "turnt up or turn down for what" days {lol}. 

So I wore a fuschiapink bandage dress and my mirrored court heels {pls start getting used to seeing this shoes very often as I can't get my feet off them! I call them my "one nation" heels....lol}. The one thing that really attracted me to this dress was that its a more affordable version of "herve leger" dresses, its popping color and the black waistline detail. The black waistline detail helped in accentuating my waist without the need of a waist belt so as not to make the outfit looking too busy especially because the shoes had a lot of details already.

Casual pastel

Hello sweets! {this is my fav endearment by the way...lol}. So today's look is a bit on the casual side with two pastel colors going on; coral and mint. There is something about pastel colors that gives a colorful but yet a soft look. 

I mean imagine if two or more primary colors {red,yellow, blue...} were paired together, it would look rather loud and busy with a great clash. In the case of pastel colors, one could still get a way with pairing three colors and making the whole outfit look very subtle and classy. In fact, you  you could look as yummy as candy....lol! 

Am such a great sucker for dressing right for an occasion. So this look got me wearing a sleeveless coral shirt paired with a super high waist skinny jeans worn to a house party over summer. O how I luv anything high waist! It has a way of making almost any body structure look super shapy. I went for a mint/blue peep toe kitten heels to complete the pastel look and a cream bag for an easy breezy flow.

Monochrome tweed

Hey sweeties! This isn't quite a very recent photo; was taken in April and the occasion was my friends court wedding. So I had the monochrome effect going on with tweed fabrics. Both the skirt and top are made of tweed. I paired this simple black peplum top with a white not so mini skirt {lol}! 

I matted the outfit with a black under tone mirrored court heels and a cream handbag to bring out the whole monochrome theme more! Alongside a slim gunpowder color waist belt so just to accentuate my waistline and make the outfit a bit more dressy.

But of course I can't help but tell you the lippy I opted for. I wore Mac's rebel lipstick which is more of a  plummy purple {if there is anything like dat...lol}. I honestly wanted to wear the life saving red lippy by Mac 'Rubby Woo' so just to give the outfit a pop but unfortunately dint have one yet! Am sure every one knows how gorgeous this lippy is and suits almost all skin tones.
