Do ever have those days where you can't find anything in your closet to wear??? Well today was that day for me!! I literally went through my entire wardrobe and created such a huge mess in my room trying to find something to wear!! Literally, everything I put on, I wasn't feeling. But eventually, I decided on this green and black striped skater dress which I purchased early on in the year, and I wore to the Ghana Independence Ball back in March. I hadn't worn it since then, so I decided today would be the day I did. The last time I wore it, I accessorised with ankara bangles and beaded bracelets from Ghana, and my Kente clutch. This time though I decided to pair it up with bold, gold accessories (which I purchased on ebay), and my orange and gold stiletto pointy shoes and I absolutely loved the final look!!

I've had this dress for over a year now and I've only worn it once, when my younger brother got baptised last year (which you can see it in a previous post). So last weekend I decided to pull it out again for church and inject new life into it, by adding colorful statement pieces!! It really was an overload of color, but it totally worked!!!
|You won't guess how much I got this necklace for?!?!? $4.95!!!!! YES!!!!! That's why I love me some ebay!!!|
|How awesome are these shoes!!!|

So two weekends ago, I wore the multi-colored peplum top (shown in the previous post) to church, and can I say... it was has become one of my favourite outfits!! The look was very simple with a basic black skirt, but I love the pops of color I injected with my lime green wedges, my ankara bangles and chanel inspired quilt bag!!
I for one don't necessarily stick with all the different fashion trends, because I feel just because everyone is wearing it, doesn't necessarily mean it'll work for my body type...but I'm loving the whole peplum trend that is going on right now!! I love that the peplum look, accentuates my best parts and hides any imperfections without much effort! And it works on every body type!!
I went to one of my favourite stores (Oz Jeans), a few weeks ago and came across a few peplum tops that I couldn't leave without! Up until this time, I didn't own many because I hadn't seen anything in particular that caught my attention... but these ones right here...YESS!!! Which one is your favourite?
Just quickly, this is what i wore shopping on the day... I don't wear jeans often but i decided to throw a pair on, with a colorful, striped tank top and my Steve Madden flats (from over 5 years ago...). To add bit of chic-ness to the outfit I carried this stunning turquoise Birkin inspired bag which I purchased on ebay! To see more of my addiction (lol), and amazing buys from ebay, check out my youtube channel :-)
Now with this "Style File," I decided to style this gorgeous coral colored assymetrical chiffon shirt from day to night. I purchased the shirt towards the beginning of the year from Supre and I'm in love with the color!!
