Fashion: Summer To Fall Outfit Challenge In AUrate New York!

AUrate New York, is a company that offers contemporary yet timeless real gold jewelry made in NYC. Social impact drives what they do, so all of their jewelry is handmade in New York City from ethically sourced materials. No conflict minerals at all. They also give back to economically disadvantaged school children with each purchase of our jewelry.

They are currently running a  project which aims to highlight jewelry and how it can play into a “summer” and a “fall” outfit. Ever since I became acquainted with the jewelry company via Instagram, I fell in love with these pieces.

I particularly don’t love chunky accessory or try any harder to get all the accessory on my body but if there is the need, I’d use it anyways. Talk about cocktails, red carpets, meets and greets etc.

The feature of this jewelry is what I love about it! It’s simple, classic and timeless. I bet it’s only sophisticated people who can understand this principle. You don’t need to have 10 gold chains on your neck to look classy but a minimal, classy and sophisticated bracelet, rings or neck piece will do all that job.

OUTFIT CHALLENGE!

I decided to pair up these pieces of jewelry and from summer time to Fall. Since Fall is almost over, here is your last-minute guide to translating your jewelry pieces from summer to Fall.

It’s that easy: For summer, I prefer lighter colours and cotton fabrics so I went with my cold-shoulder ruffle top and blue shorts. I completed my look with these minimalist but classy pieces of jewelry from Aurate company.

For Fall, I went for an androgynous look. I used my fave Fall colours (Olive green top) matched it with my brogues and of course, my new found love AURATE NWE YORK!

Don’t you just love how elegant these pieces are and yet sophisticated?!

I wanted to do something for Fall and here it is! I picked two of my favourite colours for Fall that is grey and olive green and then transformed it into two different styles.

OMG!!! I bought This H&M Neon Green 4 Inches Heels For N1000 ($2.79)!!

Happy Independence day people!! (In Nigeria).

I’m literally swooning right now over my 4 inches heels!! I mean it when I say  I bought it for N1000 ($2.78) while going home one night from work.

You can buy the best things on impulse (one thing I’m grateful for impulse buying) in Nigerian markets especially evening time.

You can read up about my bag haul in Yaba here (Yaba Market Haul: N7,000 Tough Leather Bags

I bought these brand new heels at Oshodi Oke one evening. I actually staggered there. It’s close to KWIK BET. That’s where the man places his weird shoes on the floor!

When I got there I was attracted by the price but I did not expect to see these brand new heels!! Like omggggg….i grabbed them like there isn’t going to be tomorrow! He was even pressurizing me to buy the shoes because his “customers” don’t like the colour and haven’t bought it since he came to sell. (chineke meee….)

In my mind I was stuttering (who doesn’t want a neon green heels) and the shoes are in perfect condition, quite new. You can confirm from the picture. I couldn’t believe my eyes…no I didn’t even haggle on the price. I slipped the 1k note and dashed out for good!

One thing I really appreciate impulse buying is, you get the best deals but would you always have the money and the time?

P.S. I went for another “alaroro” shoe shopping but couldn’t find the man. I will always be on the look out and if I find him again i’m getting those digits!!

Have you both an amazing deal on impulse and how much?

Pictures: Me Lately!

Tgif! I really don’t have much to say today but let the pictures speak a 1000 words. February started out really tough but came through in the end. It’s month of March and I’m being “all shades of broke”.

I made a list of everything I needed in life and prioritised but hey, a girl can never have enough. So, less words today so I can go on ahead and figure this “broke-cation”kinda thing..LOL

Cheat Code For Layering The Slip On Outfit!

There are lots of pyjamas trends out there but I’m more comfortable with the SLIP-ON velvet slip-on and satin slip-on. The trick to wearing a slip on is to understand the concept. For instance, your slip on strap has to be tiny, the slip on dress could be A-line or body con (but it should fit). 

You must understand that it has to be light-weight because you are layering it over another outfit. The slip on is best worn with a fitted tee, a dramatic sheer top or an over-sized tee depending on the way the slip fits on your body.

For a 90s look, your tee must be white, layer the slip-on on a slim-fit jean, nice eye accessory and a wavy hair cut. It’s okay to freestyle and make this look yours!

I rocked mine ona sheer turtle neck top and a burgundy fitted slip on. Check out my look!

Styling A Purple Tux Blazer And A Little White Dress

The little white dress has become a thing for me and I love it as much as I love the little black dress. They basically do the same thing for me.

I decided to give my basic lwd a twist by layering a cardigan on it and complete my look with a ballet flat heel. A little white dress is classy and appropriate for any event. See how I styled myself.

P.s. There was no awesome pose. I just stood like a mannequin
