Corazon Yigan Sunnies // Paper Denim, Denim Jacket (Try this) // Ralph Lauren Button Down (Found on eBay for you!) // Pencil Skirt c/o Thirty and West // Manolo Blahnik Hangisi Pumps// Nordstrom Rack Bracelet

…in New York City, it’s perfectly fine to catch the subway in Manolo Blahnik Hangisis!

I once had a blue pencil skirt from Zara that I wore, no lie, once a week. Then one day, while arguing with my ex, I burned it with an iron! Of course it was on sale and sold out so I was screwed… Until Thirty and West came along. This pencil skirt fits like a glove (size medium). It’s perfect for corporate settings but the split in the back makes it the perfect go-to skirt for a night out. I’ve worn it twice already!!

-Be blessed

#JustMissedtheRunway- Igee Okafor

Leading off the new weekly segment on my blog titled #JustMissedtheRunway, I introduce to you Igee Okafor:

I came across Igee’s blog surfing the web and I was immediately blown away by the layout of his blog and quality of his pictures. Fairly new to the blogging world, Igee by far, surpasses most of the seasoned fashion bloggers. His keen eye for details and tailoring really brings the wow factor into his blog www.igeeokafor.com.

Now as a female fashion blogger, I have to admit I know very little about menswear. But all that I do know can certainly be attributed to fashion bloggers like Igee. I was able to ask him a few questions about his personal style:

Aunty: How would you describe your style?

Igee: I describe my style as clean and sharp. It’s appealing, it’s fun, it’s relatable. I like to keep things uncomplicated. Although I go out of my way to experiment with different looks sometimes, I always make sure that there is a balance.

Aunty: Where are your favorite places to shop?

Igee: I do not really have favorite places per say, I usually just go wherever the wind blows as it pertains to what exactly I am shopping for. I enjoy shopping at various places for different things and I mostly look out for quality and versatile pieces. For essential pieces, I’m very comfortable at stores like H&M, Topman and, ASOS. For detail, I own pieces from Cinzia Rocca, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Marc Jacobs and more.

Ranna Gill via Anthropologie Dress (Sold Out) // Valentino Rockstud Shoes// Ray-ban Wayfarer Sunnies // Earrings from Ghana (These are on my wishlist)

As a Ghanaian American, I’m naturally drawn to vibrant colors and prints. When I tried on this dress a few months ago, I knew it would become a favorite. This dress is a testimony of how you too can be noticed without revealing much of anything. I try to cover my body as much as possible without looking like a granny. I think I was successful with this number!

Have a great weekend! I’ll be posting weekend sales shortly.
