Green Satin blouse + Plaid Skirt styling



The satin trend has been on for a while now mostly in the form of the slip satin dress and the slip skirt; while I like the satin fabric for some items like bedding and lingerie, I never really liked it as fashion piece to be worn outside the home. Also, I felt the satin slip style was just not modest enough irrespective of how it is styled; forgive me while I express my opinion...haha! 😏 You can bet I had second thoughts when I saw this green satin blazer online which again has an opening at the back but nothing a camisole cannot fix. Why can't we just have a modest satin piece for those who are really interested in the trend? To be honest, I don't mind a satin slip dress as an evening wear with good under garments because you know the fabric is very delicate and clingy and I would style it with a blazer or faux fur stole. Some satin wedding dresses are designed like slips too. So, for the sake of this post, I'm talking about the satin trend in reference to every day fashion. Anyway, rather than buy this piece here, I would take a look at the green blazer instead.

Closet Chronicles: Lilac/Lavender color







Closet Chronicles is a new feature on the blog that is all about adding colors to a plain closet and the color I'm starting off with in this series is (pastel) lavender or lilac. This is a lighter shade of purple and if you have been reading this blog for a while you will know that purple, lilac and lavender are some of my favorite colors. Unlike nudes and neutrals, this is not the color you wear on a daily or regular basics. Lilac is a color you add to the closet to style on an unexpected spring day or event; depending on the occasion. It can also be worn in the summer and all the way to Fall.




This post is about ways to add color (lilac/lavender to your closet and we'll start out by looking at a plain closet and when I say plain, I mean closets without colors; just nude and neutrals. Some people think this is boring but others just like their wardrobe or closet this way and that is okay. I f you do not like color, then you do not like color. However, spring is around the corner and this is a perfect time to access your closet  and determine what you need to refresh it. I know the trending color of the season is neon but we will address that color in a different post. So, like I was saying, we start out by just staring at this plain closet and we can make a list of that is needed in a closet; pants, tops, skirts, blazers, coats and accessories like shoes, bags, scarfs and jewelry. And we can go out to purchase affordable pieces in this color. Below are beautiful and stylish lilac color fashion pieces that you can add to your closet.









Blazers

Blazers are a cute way to add colors in your wardrobe because a colorful blazer is a statement piece. When you throw a lilac or lavender color blazer over your nudes and neutrals for spring, you'll definitely feel confident and classy for any event. To make the blazer stand out more, you can keep other accessories like shoes and bags neutral. A translucent or clear bag and shoes is a great idea too. Check out some lilac color blazers here and here.







   





Shoes

Can you see how yummy these lavender/lilac shoes look? A pair of lilac shoes would look stylish when paired with a dress, a pant suit or even a skirt and top. Easter celebration is around the corner and aside from Easter, think Spring and Summer weddings or even prom and keep a  pair at hand. Check out some selections here.

Fashion Find: Swan Cloud Maxi Skirt at Chicwish






"Fashion Find" is a new feature or post on the blog that highlights any fashion piece that is outstanding or makes a statement just like this tiered maxi skirt above. This segment would only highlight clothing pieces and bags and jewelry or any other item related to fashion with the exception of shoes. All shoe posts will continue to be highlighted in the "Shoe Loving" posts like this one here and here and here and here; So back to this beautiful piece from Chicwish. It is a gorgeous skirt, hand made from layers of soft lace and tulle. It looks very delicate and stunning and would look great for any special occasion like wedding, bridal shower, birthday celebrations and special holidays like Easter and Christmas. The only con in wearing this piece is that you have to ensure you are not upstaging the celebrant/host of the event or special occasion you have been invited to and the style is not totally new, It has been around for a while now. The skirt comes in four colors; grey, pink, cream and lilac and you can check them  out here.

Floral Sequin blouse + Black midi pencil Skirt








I know it is Tuesday and not the end of the week yet but I really needed to do this throwback post to this sequin floral blouse I wore sometime last month. The weather is all dreary around here and all I have been wearing are sweaters and long coats as you can see from my previous posts on the blog but this post here is just to add a fun look to the blog and really, believe me when I tell you that this outfit was fun to style and wear. It's a look I wore to Church weeks ago and though there was so much snow around in the background, the weather was bearable and I also had on a long black coat which I did not include in the pictures. The floral sequin blouse is a thrifted piece I blogged about here a few weeks ago. I paired it with a black midi pencil skirt, a recent purchase from Target and completed the look with an Asos belt and black suede pumps.

How I styled my camo prints pencil Skirt






Happy Friday Friends 😁 This is a flash back look to this outfit I wore last fall and just pulled from my photo archives. I have always loved camo prints because it's so edgy and chic and for a long time, I wanted a clothing item with this print. I saw a couple of camo print pants, skirts and jackets online over the years but never made a purchase. There was always something wrong with the piece; it was either the skirts were too short or the style too juvenile and the really nice designs were too expensive like this beautiful camo print midi skirt here. So, I just settled for an accessory in this camo print pumps here and styled here and here. Then I stumbled accidentally on this camo print pencil skirt on a site that retails modest fashion called Apostolic Clothing. The skirt comes in this knee length and also in a maxi. I love the length of the skirt but the fabric is a bit stretchy and cannot really be described as modest because it clings to the curves but a big or baggy top would be appropriate depending on what event or occasion you are styling it for. Another place you can get unique designs of camo print pant or skirt is on Etsy. Another alternative is to get the camo print fabric at a fabric store and then sketch your own design and send it out to a seamstress. You might end up spending more money but you'll always get a unique piece and there is always the satisfaction that you are channeling your own creativity.
