CLOTHES OFF MY RACK ; DENIM ON DENIM.




I think im in love with the Denim on Denim trend,right back at from the 80's. Hell.. i even reviewed it on the previous post.
Today's friday and is also known as my "HEAVEN-HELP-ME" day,because most of my classes fall on a friday.


i wanted to look chic and also comfortable,not forgetting that the weather has changed from the last time i posted on the "CLOTHES OFF THE RACK" segment.




i tried the "denim on denim" trend,while putting in mind,to wear constracting colours of denim,so as not to look funny.

The top is actually a denim grecian-inspired dress with drapes at the arms and an asymetrical neck,but i cinched it at the waist,so as to come off as a top,then wore it with my favourite skinnies.

i added the gold sequinned beret to add a pop of colour,as always to my outfit.



Beret-primark... ring-dorothy perkins... bracelet-forever 21...


studded slippers-unknown.


silver necklace-new look.. and my rosary.



   looking at the pictures now,i term myself as "Parisian chic".. *lol*
   


  kudos to my friend,Lexi for improvising yet anoda picture out of the camera i have at the moment.

whatchu think about my outfit..???
YAY OR NAY..??? LOL...!!

   Megan fox was the model of the female campaign of Giorgio armani underwear. posing in an underwear set,showing off her hot body and marilyn monroe tattoo.

SHOE-ORGASM;CHRISTAIN LOUBOUTINS VS JIMMY CHOO


So i ran into the picture of this studded louboutin sneakers,fabulousity,i tell you.. the price was $785.. i went wow.. on hightops..?? i really cant find myself spending that amount of money on hightops.


then i saw the picture of this sneakers,jimmy choo to be precise.. loving the position of its branding(right on the shoe lace) and the fact that its studded-less features makes it more versatile than that of the Louboutins. the price of this is $495.. more cheaper than the studded hightops.

whatchu all think..?? which do you prefer..??

CLOTHES OFF MY RACK ; PLAID-ENROUTE SCHOOL.

Today was quite chilly because of the rain,which isn't normal in lagos.. so i decided to take a wild route on my choice of clothes. i "heart" Plaid.. i always find a way to knick them off stores and my friends..{lol..}
so i decided to pair it with colours and a tanktop underneath. the blue tights are my favourite tights,knowing that i have a collection of coloured tights,but this is the brightest pair i own for now.
 
i decided to go low on the accessories.. the outfit was bright enough for school,so i didn't want to appear like i was trying too hard..so i just put on my cocktail ring and as usual,my father's Montblanc watch. i also added a brooch near the pocket to create more "oomph" to my outfit.
i got a tattoo on my right wrist so i really dont put any band or bracelet,because i like to show my tat off..!
i wore slip-ons because of the rain.. i love the stud details on them..!!

                                                   blue tights-primark, studded slip-ons-vincci.











brooch-dorothy perkins, ring-dorothy perkins











bag-salvatore ferragammo, vintage clip-on earrings-unknown

pardon the pictures.. my camera developed a fault,and my father is yet to get me a new one.. i had to improvise a camera while my lovely friend,Lexi,helped me take the pictures.

Boxing kitten has assembled an impressive array of celebrities and press in magaines like Arise,Giant and the new york times.


the vintage inspiration behind boxing kitten celebrates the spirit and lives of women who have come before,and the playfulness and vibrancy of each piece captures the women of today and the future.

alexa chung

Designer sent out models on the runway,wearing denim on denim... the fashion faux pas everyone avoided is now the trend,every fearless fashionista must try.

To achieve the perfect look.. keep the lower denim darker than the upper one.. keep perfect balance with one denim loose-fitting and the other,tight-fitting.wear heels,if u may,to keep it looking as feminine as u can.
