OUTFIT: LAID BACK IN A BUTTON DOWN DENIM DRESS

Current Jam: Nothing dey by KISS DANIEL

Denim dress (10)

I got this button down denim dress about 10 months ago and it has been lying in my closet ever since. I honestly bought the dress on impulse, because its DENIM and I have a weakness for denim.

My face when someone says I wear too much DENIM

I got the dress while thrift-shopping because it was screaming 90s and I thought I’d look like one of the casts from  Sister Sister in it (I know, silly meloool)

The other day, I was going through my stuffs when I came across this dress and I thought it was high time I featured it on here, not knowing exactly how I wanted to style, I decided to go for a laid back look, just because I know I couldn’t go wrong with ‘laid-back’. ‘wink’

literally laid back. looool

I paired the dress with an over-sized checked shirt and a pair of sneakers (that I won’t stop wearing).

The belt was a final touch, I added it to the look because it kind of takes me back to the 90s 😉.
One final thing I did was to show some Skin 😉😉 (just because I’ve come to love my big thighs and scared legs 😊)

OUTFIT: SKIRT OR BLOUSE

Current Fav: Back to sleep by CHRIS BROWN

IMG-20170626-WA0002

Heyyy!! I’m quite pumped today, I can’t say exactly why, but… I hope it stays this way.

So, I wore this pleated skirt of mine as an off shoulder blouse or cape… I know, I know I’m a bit late on the trend loool. But I just found a way to make this work for me…

IMG-20170626-WA0001

IMG-20170626-WA0007

I got this skirt as a birthday gift when I clocked 19, and I’ve only worn it like twice (you have that piece of clothing you never wear and won’t give out, right?).

IMG-20170626-WA0004

Wearing a skirt as a top might be a bit tricky, so I advise you go for skirts with elastic band as opposed zippers this will make fitting easier.

IMG-20170626-WA0005

You could also wear it as a tube top, but I choose to wear it as an off shoulder top because then it doubled as a cape.

IMG-20170626-WA0008

You know I’m a sucker for Denim, so I paired the skirt with a pair of jeans, but you could wear it with any other fabric or a skirt or even as a dress depending on the length and your preference.

IMG-20170626-WA0010

This look will also be great with a pair of heels…

I hope you got a thing or two from this post. Till next time. xx.

DIY: FRAYED JEANS

Current Fav: Good morning by BRYMO

Hello Guys,
A couple of weeks ago I frayed my jeans… I wasn’t gn put it up here because I thought everyone would have seen a tutorial on How-to-frayed jeans (I know, silly me).
When I wore the jeans out with a few friends, I got a lot of questions about it, so I decided to put it up.

Screenshot_2017-06-19-15-16-58_1
Things you’d need arnd why
1. A pair of JEANS (denim)
I’m sure you get why you need this, lol. Okay so, the weaving in jeans makes it very easy to take out a particular thread, the wrap thread which runs vertically is dyed and the weft thread which runs horizontally is left white.

Screenshot_2017-06-19-15-16-03_1
2. A pair SCISSORS
This is to cut off a few inches depending on preference, I cut off about 3 inches, you can go lower or higher… All you need to do is to cut out the hem.
3. A TAPE RULE
For measuring out the length you decide to cut off.
4. A NEEDLE
I used this pick out the horizontal/weft thread (which was white) I did this till I discovered easier way to just put out the thread.
5. Some TIME
Last but not the list, is TIME!! The one thing that was left out in all of the DIYs on fraying denim had I seen is Time…

Screenshot_2017-06-19-15-16-15_1

I need to emphasize on this,I had planned to frayed the denim higher than I did ( I was gn make it about 5 inches high, but I stopped at about 2 inches).
When I was in school (cheesy, I know 😂) I knew some people that payed to fray their jeans, I used to wonder why, but after doing this, I understand why now… To all my friends that want their jeans frayed, you gatta pay me.
In the end, it will be worth it. So, I’d say to should try it out, no rush…

It took me about 2 days and I’m not done, I’ll still fry it higher.

I hope this was helpful, till next post.xx

Today is another outfit post, I wore this waistcoat as a shirt/blouse with a pair of jeans (fav) then I completely the look with a blazer, kind of gave it a corporate- casual look.

Screenshot_2017-06-05-09-19-51_1
I have layered with this waist coat but I couldn’t get enough good pictures so I refrained from posting it here.

Screenshot_2017-06-05-09-27-46_1

But if you follow me on Instagram @mikunstyles, you’d have already seen how I layered with it.
I thrifted this coat a few months ago it cost #200 and the most interesting thing about it is it is DENIM you’ll know how much of a sucker I am for Denims.. I’m not sure these pictures are showing that its Denim, but it is and that makes me liken it even more.
Everything I wore besides from the shoes was thrifted and the total cost is less than 2000 naira (the jeans was a bit pricy 😒)

Till next time where I’ll be talking about BEAUTY, please stay tuned.xx
