SILK IRO & BUBA-(WRAP AND TOP)

Hey guys,

How is your week going? Mine is going awesome!! I am writing this while sitting on a balcony with an ocean front. The cool breeze from the ocean is so relaxing. I am supposed to be on vacation from everything, yes even blogging but oh my...Can I really take vacation from this job I love so much? I dont think so lol....

So today I have something different. I recieved this gorgeous Iro and buba from www.thegandtbrand.com. I would never in a million years see myself in this trad, ooops did I say trad? No my fashion lovers, the Iro & Buba has instantaneously become one of the biggest growing trend of all time. Since 2013 the trend has changed from the usual traditional wear to a fashion trend with a twist to it. Even celebrities like Kelly Rowland has been spotted in one. (say what?? yaaas see below)

The name Iro and Buba (pronounced “ee-roe” and “boo-bah”) is Nigerian. If you have watched any of their movies, you will see that its a very common outfit for wedddings and parties.

I am not Nigerian but I love it and I'm rocking mine in 3 different ways.

  1. Normal with a front knot.
  2. Shorten wrap with a back knot.
  3. Top with distressed jeans (for girls night out)

Talk about taking advantage of versatility. So get your groove on and feel comfortable to wear it anywhere. Church, weddings, baby showers and even girls night out(yaaaaas honey!!). Head over to www.thegndtbrand.com and get yours while stocks last!

I hope you guys enjoy and are inspired.

Till next time, Stay stylish and be You!!

FOR THE LOVE OF FUR... FAUX FUR

Happy New year Lovelies!!

9 days into the year and there is so much to do, so many changes to make, so many places to visit and so many blessings to be thankful for. I thank God for bringing me this far.

The temperatures have been frigid lately here in Ohio with the addition of snow and overcast. Luckily I am braving the cold weather with the help of this Forever 21 Faux Fur Coat. It is so soft and luxurious and it lends the perfect vintage feel to any outfit while helping to stay warm and cozy.I honestly can't get enough of this vintage faux-fur coat, and just love the added dimension and texture it brings to plain outfits as well as it's warmth. I am so in love with the color too.

So I paired it with faux burgurndy leather pants and zipper boots! these boots can be transformed from booties to otk to thigh boots in seconds! just zip and unzip! The faux fur stole was added because the coat does not have a collar, it's still cute without it but it was super cold and I didnt want to turn into a popsicle lol

I hope you guys enjoy!!

Till next time, Stay stylish and keep warm!!

BURGUNDY LOVE

Happy Friday people!!

Fall is almost coming to an end and winter is slowly creeping in. We experienced the lowest temperature of 5F yesterday. I would say its not looking good at all for this winter! anyway I will be going by Anthony J. D'Angelo's quote this winter thus ''Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.'' There it is! You either take life positively or negtively. Its all up to you.

So I really love this burgundy pencil skirt I got from rainbowshops, doesnt it just pop? Burgundy is a perfect color during this time of the year and I think I have been making more burgundy additions to my closet. I mixed it with brown this time around and it looks so pretty. How chic! to make it more wow, it matched with the colors of fall, the leaves were my natural God sent background lol

I hope you guys are inpired and enjoy this look.

Till next time, Stay Stylish and be YOU!

BLACK TIE CREATIVE

Hello people! Happy Tue-slay!!

I know Ive been going on with this men's wear craze for a while now he-he. Dont worry its a phase, I'm sure it will go away soon. Anyway, today I mixed things up a little bit, instead of your normal lapel/ collar blazer, I am wearing a collarless @forever21 blazer. I am wearing a pinstriped chaps shirt and again created an illusion of a black tie with this rue21 suede choker scarf which I put together with a ring. So according to ties.com, black Tie Creative is an opportunity to showcase your personal style in terms of color, accessories, and collar and lapel style. I opted for the collarless and I love it!! This sartorial modification still honors a formal atmosphere of a formal event, in my case a professional one. I hope you guys enjoy this look.I cant promise that this will be the last one,lol The craze is still going on.

I love and appreciate you for visiting my blog. Till next time, stay Stylish!!

FEMININE MEN'S WEAR WITH TIE

Hello Lovelies!!

I hope you guys had a wonderful weekend. Its another beautiful Monday and today's look will be another men's wear with a feminie twist. I just got this vibe going on fr some reason, so watch this space because I have lots of styles for you.

This is a suited up look with a scarf that was used as a tie. To put the scarf in place I used on of the rings I got from my favorite store Charlotte Russe. Again with this outfit I y wanted to wear a black fedora hat, but my big hair is making it impossible hehe. So some of you were aking me if I really wear this to work, to answer your question: yes I actually go to work looking like this. All my corporate looks reflect my true style for a day at the office. Hair, makeup, everything! I know its too much work for some of you but hey this girl doesnt mind all that! Its a part of my everyday routine.

Anyhoo, I hope you guys enjoy and do let me know your thoughts on this look.

Till next time,

Stay stylish!!!

CORPORATE LOOK-FEMININE MEN'S WEAR WITH BOWTIE

Happy New Month!!

Its December already?? Where did the days go? Like seriously , can we pause for a minute here.

Anyhoo, It’s my Blogiversary month and I am so Excited! I have so much in store for you guys!

So I have been experimenting and trying to get out of my comfort zone a little. There’s so much inspiration out there you guys and I think I’m going out of the box for real! he-he So I created this corporate men’s wear look Today. The bow tie is overkill...and even without it this outfit is a win.. A Shawl Collar Tuxedo Blazer is a must-have and versatile enough for both work and play. I so love the twist on the menswear vibe! I would have added a black or white fedora but I was in the mood for a more feminine look so I wore heels instead of loafers, and the dress pants speak for themselves.

I hope you guys enjoy !I love and appreciate you stopping by.

Till next time, Stay stylish!! The Style Concession xoxo

BLANKET SCARF, A MUST HAVE FOR FALL AND WINTER...

Happy thanksgiving lovelies!!,

I hope your week is going great. Mine is and I am so looking forward to spending time with family and a little break from work. They say gratitude is the best attitude. I surely am grateful for all my blessings. I say count your blessings too, name them one by one and it will surprise you what the Lord has done!

I have always loved scarves, especially blanket scarves, they are the best thing that happened to fall and winter accessories. They are a must have!! What with the versatility and all. They are warm and can be worn in so many different ways.I kid you not, is just as warm as the majority of my winter coats! It’s so huge I can wrap it, belt it and keep nice and cosy. This is such an easy throw together outfit, it doesn’t really matter what’s going on beneath the cape. I did a post for how to rock these in seven ways. If you scroll down in older posts, you will find it.

Anywho, I got this lovely blanket scarf from charlotte Russe a while ago. The best thing I love about it is that it has a fur collar which can be taken off too! How cool is that. And you don’t have to do much with it, its effortlessly chic on its own. Just wrap it on yourself anyway you feel like.

I paired this with a little sweater and jeggings. Finished it off with these tan gorgeous boots from express. This look is good for work, out with friends on a cold night, or out to the mall or for thanksgiving lunch with family.

I hope you guys enjoy your thanksgiving.

Till text time,

Stay stylish!

She has definitely served some serious style over the last 7 years!!She is my #WCE. Such an inspiration! so if I ever make it as first lady some day (YOU NEVER KNOW), be assured I will not dissapoint, I have standards to maintain ♥☺♥

TRANSITONAL SUMMER PIECES FOR FALL....

Happy Tue-slay and Happy New Month!

Good Lord, the year is ending already?? Where has the time flown?,

While I was putting away my summer clothes, I found I couldn’t put everything away. Taking out the sweaters, coats, and scarves is what it means to transition your wardrobe for fall right? – but what about all of those summer favorites you aren’t ready to let go of just yet? There’s no need to pack them away them away just yet. Yes the weather is going to start getting colder, but that doesn’t mean you have to buy a whole new wardrobe! Oh no honey! There are some transitional summer pieces you can wear this fall that you probably already have hanging in your closet! You just have to be a little more creative.

Ok so I transitioned this summer jumpsuit, rather strapless love jumpsuit to make it more suitable for fall, I just tucked in a green long sleeve shirt and voila! I was done. Effortless, yet so chic. I can wear this to work, church or out with the girls. I could also add a blazer to look more professional or a moto jacket for an edgy look. The possibilities on how to wear this jumpsuit this season are endless!. So don’t put away those favorite summer pieces just yet and don’t spend a fortune to change your wardrobe, find creative ways to wear them till it gets colder! lol

I hope you guys enjoy and are inspired!! Your visits to my blog are highly appreciated!

Till next time, stay stylish!!

HAPPY FRIDAY COWGIRL!!!

Happy Friday everybody!

Who is ready for the weekend? I know I am! So my boss decided we can now wear jeans on Fridays only with no tennis shoes. I was excited about it, coz sometimes you need to really casual it out or just dress down. Fridays will be pretty exciting for me, I already have created so many jeans/casual outfits that needs to be documented and shared, well some will never be but that’s cool. Lol :) So I am wearing a plaid shirt, distressed jeans, a faux fur vest, and booties minus the floppy hat. This is kind of a cowboy/girl look, somewhat chic what with the fur vest. This look is comfortable and can be worn when going out with friends, work on Fridays, dates and all that.

I hope you guys enjoy! I appreciate you stopping by!

Till next time, enjoy the weekend and stay stylish!!

FLORALS IN FALL.....

Hey Lovelies,

The weather has been so nice lately! It doesn’t really feel like fall yet and am loving it! I have since put off putting my summer clothes or shoes away because the weather keeps changing lol. So on Sunday I wore this outfit to church. I have been meaning to get this skirt for the longest time but every time I went over to the mall, I would forget or something. So I went there some time last week and guess what, the lady gave it to me for half the price because I told her how I thought it would be on sale by now…aaawww how sweet is that! So yeh to cut the story short, I got the skirt for $12 and paired it with a military green the top which was also on markdown for only $2 ha! What a steal!!. I finished the look with these Victoria Secret suede shoes and velvet purse.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog! I hope you guys enjoy and are inspired.

Till next time, stay stylish!

CONNECT THE DOTS........

Hello Lovelies!

What a beautiful Tuesday in fall!.. we are still enjoying the sunshine! Amazing!! The best of both worlds! So I came across this skirt last year on Facebook ads, I think it was Sammy dress if am not mistaken. It looked stunning, and y’all know how stores put up the best picture for an ad and it comes differently lol .So I decided to buy it and oh my was I surprised, I wasn’t disappointed. This skirt has everything, first of all its Black and white polka dots (who doesn't L♥VE Polka Dots!!)Black, White, Polka dot?! There is nothing more I want in a skirt, well except for make a fit in flare figure flattering silhouette that tucks in at my waist like woah! And then the best part(well for me at least) is the pockets!! . Oh how I love anything with pockets, makes me feel like I am in charge somehow ha-ha! Funny right?

Oh well so I paired the skirt with a black Tee with a sheer polka dot top to keep it from feeling too muted and black strappy heels. And since it gets chilly sometimes, I pulled over my favorite moto jacket from forever 21! This look is simple yet so chic! I love!!

This skirt will definitely be making another appearance here!

I hope you guys enjoy and thank you so much for visiting my blog!

Till next time, Stay Stylish!

NAMASLAY- HAREM STYLE.....

The moment I saw these harem bohemian pants, excitement triggered in me. This is different and I like different. I tried them on and I was like yaaaasss girl, werk it!!!!.  I love these pants. They are soooo comfortable!

I paired them with this sheer polo from Top shop highlighting my forms to create a contrast with the pants' baggy appearance. For dress up,  I wore my express strappy high heels to refine the silhouette.

If you want to adopt a more casual attire, you can wear a plain tank top and complete your look with flat shoes like ballerinas or sandals. You can also go bare foot/no shoes for dancing lol..(trust me these pants will make you want to dance)

So harem pants can be both stylish and elegant if you style them well. You can shop these awesome pants at www.eccentrickristoure.com use my discount code Thestyle10 or Tsc to get  10% off.

I hope you guys enjoy!

Till next time, Stay Stylish!!
