Hey guys, my name is Alero Arafiena, and I am a Fashion Consultant x Fashion x Style Blogger—>Check me out here
So my dear friend asked me to put together my top fashion picks. I must admit it was surprisingly hard to do so. It took me quite a while to put the list together (ordinary 5-6 fashion picks oh), so I don’t know if I should blame it on wanting a little bit of everything because there’s just so much to yearn for in fashion. Sigh!
So anyway let’s zoom forward.
I’m pretty sure my number 1 would never even surprise Itunu, unless she chooses to fall my hand, which I bet she wouldn’t . Lol
As a lady you can never ever go wrong with a pair, no please pairs of shoes, when worn right though. I am mad crazy/obsessed with shoes. Yes I have a shoe fetish and I am a shoe-aholic, so it pretty much explains why it’s number 1 on the list and I think you should invest in them too.
Beautiful shoes have a way of adding pizzazz to an entire outfit. It can even take the focus off a bad/repeated outfit.
And better yet? You don’t necessarily need to break the bank for a really good pair.
I don’t know if it’s just me, but I’m pretty much obsessed with kimonos right now. I mean asides the fact they are super comfy to wear, and help hide my tummy when I’ve just eaten, they just give this laid back vibe that I pretty much like. They can make an otherwise bland/just there outfit pop.
I think kimonos should be a wardrobe essential. (Or what do you think?) And trust me they can go both formal or casual, depending on how you style yours.
And did I mention they come in different lengths and can be worn by literally anyone? Awesome! I Know Right!
Sorry I had to put all three into 1 *covers face*. Anyone who pretty much knows me, knows I am a skirt-aholic. I am a sucker for maxi dresses. Probably has to do with the comfort it gives. They are essential part of my sense of style. Jeans are a no-brainer.
As a lady, you’ve got to have these. Skirts are ever so feminine; maxi/shirt dresses are just so perfect for almost anything; for the movies/casual days, TGIF workdays. An awesome pair of well fitted Jeans? I bet you know why already 🙂
Might I add that I’m loving the ripped boyfriend denims right now too!
This can pass for a fashion item right?
I picked brassieres just because we as ladies (me included definitely) need to invest in really good bras/bra tops. For no other reason being that they provide the much needed support for our ladies, and most importantly because the famous saying “behind every gorgeous outfit are well supported mammary…ies” was just made up by me. But really, think about it… hehe
5) FEDORA HATS
These are just so uber cool and they make such statements.
My name is Tosin Sho-Silva and I am a fashion and textile student as well as blogger at www.stylebyalexandriah.com. For my undergrad, I studied Architecture and that’s where my love for fashion really began. Asides my mom being a wedding dress designer, I turned to fashion as an escape route from all the stress of architecture and it resulted in me following this passion.
I started my blog in October 2014; with the hope that it will open up opportunities for me as I will be starting my women’s wear and home accessories brand soon
Itunu contacted me and asked if I could share my top fashion/beauty picks and I thought yeah why not! So here goes:
1. Eyebrow Pencil: I know this sounds weird especially as the first pick*laughs*but I have very faint eyebrows and it looks super weird when I don’t fill them in with a pencil. I love to use Rimmel or Jordana in dark brown.
They last long as well as look natural.
2. Turtle Neck Jumper: Yes! You can never go wrong with a turtle neck jumper. I wear these everywhere not just because they keep me warm, they are super comfortable and classy. My favourite turtle necks are from Marks and Spencer, they offer very durable jumpers and the fit is fab.
3. High-waist Clothing: Jeans, trousers, skirts etc. I only wear high waisted garments as they make my legs appear longer and torso shorter. Also because I’m very slim, it helps accentuate my most flattering features.
4. Court Shoes: I absolutely love court shoes. They match literally everything and keep it classy. I have a nude pair I wear literally everywhere. Love them!
5. A Good Bag: I love bags so much.
When buying a bag, I consider structure and material.
These features are most important to me because I do not like bags that must be filled to look nice. Also, I only buy genuine leather bags because they last longer and you can really feel the difference.
Once in a while, I buy faux leather bags but only for clutches.
Hope you enjoyed her picks guys.
Thank you so much Tosin, you rock hun!
