Rita Ora on Mr. Blasberg's List

Fun is when I browse through Mr. Blasberg's list and find outfits that I can rock... and that I love. I was just going through his Best Dressed List for July 26th, 2013 and saw Rita Ora's jumpsuit in Viktor & Rolf. Can I just say I LOVE IT ?!!! The color, the cut, the fitting. Perfection. Rita kept it simple with her small round earrings and no necklace. No distractions from her pretty face. The red lipstick kept her face bright too.

Jumpsuits are so hot. I had planned on wearing one for my birthday last year but it didn't exactly work out. By the way, I would wear a more fitted one than what Rita has on in the photo.

A Nigerian celebrity, Tonto Dikeh, was photographed wearing a red hot jumpsuit just a few days ago. I guess it's the thing for the week. I just might wear my tribal printed suit this weekend.

Kimora Lee Still Looks Hot!

I think it was yesterday I was reminded of Kimora Lee. Remember her show? Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane? It's been a while since I watched Style Network: been more than a little busy. Apparently, she has a spin-off show called Kimora: House of Fab, which debuted in January (2013).

Anyways, I ran into a lovely photo of her on Essence website. Thought I would share.

Queen-inspired Decor

I haven't done a home decor write-up in a bit. Here's to me getting back into it. Joss and Main, a site for purchasing what seems to be quality home decor pieces, put together a collection of home items that will remind you of Great Britain. Here are a few of the items.

Shame About Booty Shorts!

There's this trend: shorts that show the bottom of girls' butts. It's summer; it's exciting to finally show some skin after all those months of conservative winter, but to think that showing too much of your skin is fashion is a mess!

It gives me great grief to see (young) girls and grown women shamelessly flaunting such shorts. I believe they all think it's an honest copy of what everyone is already doing. Fashion and style should not have to supersede morals. Some outfits are in the magazines just for "the looking." Not every runway style has to make it to the streets.

We can all imagine the results of these displays of private, personal skin. The fabric with which these outfits are made might be temptingly beautiful, but unless there's enough of it to cover your behind even when you bend to pick something up, please say "NO" to it. #that'sall

Good Investment or Bad Investment?

Typically, when you are young, you stick with fashion pieces you can afford. College day stories are full of shortcuts: the dresses you wore for one or two occasions 'cos it looked hot... though the quality was so bad it ripped right after etc. The older you get, you take quality more into account. I think your dressing should be indicative of your age and "status" in life. While a school girl, dress like a school girl. When a lady/adult, dress like one.

One of the most disappointing things to me is a lady going to a night event, dressing like a teenager heading to a club. There IS a difference between sexy and skimpy. A sexy look is never too calculated. I digress.

Not only in clothing, but in shoes, when you can afford quality, purchase quality. But how far is too far? How much are you willing to spend on a pair of gorgeous heels? Which of these designer shoes would you purchase?

Here are sexy sexy sexy shoes I found on Elle's "34 Statement-Making Summer Heels."

Miss Nigeria Pageant: Best Dressed!

You've got to LOVE BellaNaija for always bringing you the WHOLE album of photos from these red carpet events in Nigeria (fondly called Naija). See Bella's photos from the Miss Nigeria finale here: Bella. I would like to say that I discussed the photos over a glass of wine and grapes with dear friends but it was over garri and okra soup and Skype. :-) Still with a dear friend though. (Garri and soup is a staple in Nigeria whether you are in the eastern part of Nigeria or the West. Western part of Nigeria, that is.)

Ure's Very Best Dressed Lady in the Miss Nigeria Pageant event is... Drum Rolls please!!!

Tiwa Sawage. Yeah! What a surprise!! NOT... If you don't get it, I'm being sarcastic here. Tiwa Savage is one of the best dressed celebrities in Nigeria. She rarely disappoints.

What will surprise you is that her suit is by Bridget Awosika... Just awesome. Here I was, thinking it was by a foreign designer when I saw "Bridget Awosika." Just awesome, I tell you!!!

Cheers to Vicky B. for Her Bravery in Rocking the V in the LV Dress!

When I posted the photo of LV's black dress in my April post (click here), some shunned the dress as too simple and looking like lingerie etc. I saw it as a simple sexy black dress. I know you can't wear it everywhere but it caught my eye. Now, Vicky has been known to rock outfits. She's a style icon. If Vicky rocks something, think twice about downing it.

Today, I'm looking through another blog and what do I see? Vicky B. in the very dress that didn't seem to draw anyone's attention. I totally get her style and I'm sure she'd get mine. ;)

Cheers to Victoria Beckham for her bravery.

The Right Hairstyle Flatters Your Face

If you are like me, you enjoy browsing through red carpet photos- looking for lovely flowy dresses on your favorite stars or their best hairdos. Today,  I'm focusing on the hairstyles, like MSN Living did in an article today. You'll see stars like the newly married (?) Kerry Washington and the gorgeous star of "Australia," Nicole Kidman.
