My weekend in ATL

This weekend I had the pleasure of going to Atlanta, Georgia for a wedding. If you know me, you know I “LOVE” weddings but this time was a little different. I attended two ceremonies for the same couple. On Saturday they had a traditional Nigerian ceremony and on Sunday was  the american style wedding. Both ceremonies were very romantic. I had a blast! So congrats again to the happy couple Maggie and Chris. Thank you for letting me share in this joyous occasion.

I was wearing lipstick this weekend instead of lip gloss. Which color do you like on me more? Red or Pink

After a long weekend we decided to explore the city Monday night.

Dinner at Yard House. The waiter was so nice I had to get a picture with him.

Met up with my cousin and fellow blogger Lucy (on the left).

I had a blast in Atlanta and I can’t wait to go back. There’s so much more that I didn’t get to see. 

P.S. Pictures of the bride and groom will be posted soon!

Suits: Summer 2013 Edition

 

Enjoy a quick joke…

A man goes to a tailor to try on a new custom-made suit. The first thing he notices is that the arms are too long.

“No problem,” says the tailor. “Just bend them at the elbow and hold them out in front of you. See, now it’s fine.”

“But the collar is up around my ears!”

“It’s nothing. Just hunch your back up a little… No, a little more… That’s it.”

“But I’m stepping on my cuffs!” the man cries in desperation.

“Now, bend you knees a little to take up the slack. There you go. Look in the mirror–the suit fits perfectly.”

So, twisted like a pretzel, the man lurches out onto the street. Reba and Florence see him go by.

“Oh, look,” says Reba, “that poor man!”

“Yes,” says Florence, “but what a beautiful suit.”

 

At least one of these looks should be in your wardrobe by the end of summer 2013!

Fashion is all about having fun. Play it up and make it you. Remember the most important thing about a suit or any piece of clothing is the fit. Find a local tailor in your area that will work with your budget, so you can look like you just stepped off a runway.

This is a nice “going out” look minus the belt. I would pair it with something less flashy.

This jacket is to die for. I would pair it with a different pair of trousers though.

I’m not really a fan of the double breasted suit, but the one on the left caught my attention.

This is for my men who like to wear vests.

I call this the ultimate light grey suit. It will never go out of style.
