 Hey guys...



I sort of thought about this look right before sleeping the night before I wore it but I wasn't too sure about it,until morning came,I tried it and it worked for me.I decided to wear this thrifted oversize blouse with grey tailored pants to class.The look is very simple and corporate meaning it's very simple to pull off.I wore some green button earrings and peep toes to complete the look.I love the fact that I did not wear the pants with black since the green I believe, is what made the ensemble pop that day.




 The weather kept fluctuating so I wore this black blazer at some point and tied a black belt over it around my waist area because I felt like it looked a little big.

Glad I finaly posted these images I've had for a whle...Thanks Allan for taking the shots and thanks alot to you all for stopping by.
Yours truly
Sophie

Hello everyone..






 Never in my dreams did I see myself  in a pleated floral skirt.I always thought of them as old fashioned but when I saw this one,I had to have it.I wore it to church with this simple top , a pair of black heels and opted to carry a black bag.I also decided to tie this brown belt around my waist to synch me in and added a brown bracelet.The look gave me a vintage kind of feel to be honest and I was very happy with it.





 Decent, classy and pretty enough for church I blieve.
Thanks alot to my sister Lorin for taking my photos,she even managed to bring out the vintage feel through these pictures.



 Thank you for stopping by and please feel free to leave a comment.Till next time,God bless!!

Hello people!!
It's very interesting that for a long time I couldn't find it in me to wear red because I was just tired of it.Having been clad in an almost all red high school uniform for four years ,when I was done I figured I had been seen in red more than enough times and had to avoid it for a while.Rediculous huh?
Anyway when I started wearing red again just recently,I realized I actually love the colour.





I wore this red skirt with a black sleeveless top and a black jacket.I added a scarf to the look and voila!!This is what became of the outfit.I never used to wear scarves and before wearing this one I'd had it for so long but now am convinced that I should get more of them.






Thanks Geophry for taking my photos and thank you all for stopping by.
Yours truly
Sophie

Hey guys...


When I said I seem to be in love with Asian style I actually meant it and now am thinking of thrifting for even more of those kinds of outfits.I wore this Chinese style dress a few weeks ago.This little pink one which I would have loved to wear without the stockings but with respect to the fact that I study in a very conservative town,I made it a point to cover up a little because it would have been a little to short to walk around town in during the day and I would have never heard the end of it.


Getting it to the point of being worn involved a lot of adjusting by my tailor but the end result was worth it.I went for a very simple look,pairing it with just some black shoes,and a skinny black belt.White earrings and this hairdo that I absolutely love completed the look.

I'd like to say thanks to Yvonne for taking my photos.


Thanks a lot for stopping by

 Hey guys,I know it's been a while ,how you doing...




So I've had these photos for a while and I thought I should share them on today's post because the outfit sort of depicts my mood today.Pink because I feel this sense of assurance that a number of things I've been doing will bear fruit very soon and red because it's the color of action and passion just to signify my determination to make all these things work together for good.So much faith huh?Well,the serious stuff on the title is there just because it's an outfit fit for the corporate world,no big reason I mean I would wear this to a meeting.

I loved the pink and red combo that sunny day and the best part of it all was that my bag matched the two colors.It was an easy look to put together of course because the pants are plain black and the shoes are really simple.I wore it to my first serious class of this semester .

Hey guys...
So in this life we are blessed to have so many people around us but its sad that most of the time we just don't appreciate them enough.However,it's on days like these that celebrating an important person's presence is inevitable.Today,I am celebrating the life of my favorite person in the world,my one and only brother .HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOSH( just had to put it all in capital letters) may God bless you with many more years so that you can  bring more happiness to even more people.He's now 11 gosh he grew so big so fast and I can't help but feel blessed to have him.



To my outfit post...I have on this purple chiffon dress that is both simple and beautiful...Purple is my favorite colour and wearing it during the warm sunny weather just pleases me . I love the length and the detail around the neck.The decor in form of a zipper around the waist area pretty much does it for me.I kept it simple by wearing it with peep toe heels and carried a simple clutch bag.I wore these white earrings and I was good to go






I want to say a big thank you to Geophry,for taking my photos on this beautiful ,both sunny and windy day.I appreciate the patience lol.




Remember never take people around you for granted because there's a reason why they are all there.

Thanks for stopping by,till next time,keep it fabulous.
Yours truly
Sophie
