Valentine’s day is done and dusted, but who says red has to be only worn on val’s day. Y’all know red is my favourite colour. It is a colour that speaks volume to me. It screams confidence! With spring here and few weddings to attend, I have the urge to add new pieces to my closet. The weather has changed drastically over here in the UK (well in my town) and I couldn’t be more happier. It literally feels like summer from twelve noon.
I have a lot of going out dresses, but realised that I barely own any gowns. In the african community, when a lady attends someone’s wedding looking sophisticated in a gown, people tend to throw a bit of shade like, “why are you all dolled up, are you trying to steal the bride’s spot.” Having this at the back of my mind has always made me shy away from gowns. Ha!! In two months I might be emceeing a friend’s wedding reception and this could be a perfect moment to grab me one. -Specifically that particular red gown on my wishlist. I love the beautiful lace detailing on the neckline and the slight sexy off-shoulder style (just like the curvy red dress with black panels).
Bodysuits have become such a staple in every girl’s closet. They’re so easy going. Whether dressed up or down, they’re hustle free. Plus they’re bathing suits too. Berets have been having a moment in the style world. Add a touch of Parisian chic vibe to your looks anyday. Statement earrings are a must for me. Personally I prefer them to necklaces.
What are you crushing on now? Are you spring shopping? Do share!
