An All Black Look

Hey Guys,

Happy New Month!!!

It feels so good to be able to say that on the first day of the month, whooohooo, so glad I'm back.
This look was shot over a month ago by CKKnightphoto.
I met him through live your dreams earlier in the year and he gifted me a complimentary shoot, how sweet :D
I have never really been a huge fan of sleeveless, halterneck or strapless clothing but as the off shoulder trend is currently in vogue, I decided to give it a shot :D
The top is my sister's and she got it from Zara, her style is very altΓ©.
The riding pants are from American Apparel. I've rocked them here and here.

The heels are from Kampke. I've styled them a couple of times before: in this post, this post and this post.
On my hair, I've got Brazilian wool, post about it coming soon.
I only had it in for a week so I'm glad I was able to take these pictures before loosening the twists.
I think all black look's are really versatile and they can be switched up or down by adding or changing accessories. Styling my hair in a bun and wearing court shoes would have made this look more formal.
These pictures were taken at Eko Hotel on the night of Mike Aremu's Sax Appeal.
If you don't know who he is then you definitely need to read this post.
These two lovely ladies walked by during the shoot.
I had met Temi (in the white dress) at Live your dreams last year so it was nice to see her again.
She is into photography @_tidola and she runs an NGO too (@handsonclayfoundation), check her out!
I met her friend Deola and we all ended up enjoying the concert together, don't you think she looks cool in her denim dress and converses?
Hope you enjoyed the post!

Let me know what you think of all black look's, some people think all black should only be worn for funerals but I think a fitted Black midi dress can look very classy. We all know Black is slimming too!

    1. Looool, I feel a number of Lawyers tend to slay Black and White looks as they have had to wear it everyday for a long time.

  8. Always so happy which is one of the things I love about your outfit posts. If I was having a bad day this would just be all I needed in brightening it. Love the Brazilian wool twists. You can't go wrong with all black. And I'm not one to bare my shoulders too but I think it's about time I embraced the trend. I love the top and think a bun and court shoes and perhaps a blazer would have instantly dressed up the outfit.

      I really appreciate the sweet words.
      You're right about that, I would love to see how you style an off shoulder top/dress.
      Maybe you should get one of your wonderful Calabar tailors to make one.
