Happy Weekend!


Hi everyone! Hope you had a great week. Check out my feature and interview on Bebe.

Cheers to a great weekend!

"I decided, very early on, just to accept life unconditionally; I never expected it to do anything special for me, yet I seemed to accomplish far more than I had ever hoped. Most of the time it just happened to me without my ever seeking it."--Audrey Hepburn

Lots of love,

The fast approaching fall season is luring me towards darker colors. Recently, I have been wearing lots of black pants and this Zara pair is no exception. The slim fit and tailoring of the pants flatters my body. The addition of the peplum top accentuates my curves and the ruffles create more attention to the waist adding an edge to the monochrome look. I completed the look with a bold statement necklace for a touch of color.

Afternoon Craving: Jean Cazabat pumps

For Fall, embrace some pointy-toe pumps in jewel tones. Jean Cazabat shoes are my currently discovered brand. I love the classy and chic pumps and the blue and green pair will perfectly fit in my closet.

What's your favorite color?

Fall Mix: Mustard & Purple

Fall Mix- Rayban and Jcrew by www.jadore-fashion.com

Hello beautiful people! How was your weekend? I always feel connected to all my readers because I tweet back, respond to facebook YAY or NAY posts while posting quick snaps of my outfits, shoes, foods, friends and everything happening on instagram. I really do enjoy such moments; so, don't forget to join if you haven't yet (wink, wink!).

I worked on Saturday after an early morning Pilates with my trainer. After work on Saturday, I pampered myself with a manicure and pedicure before heading to a friend's surprise birthday. He was so surprised and I have never seen him so calm and quiet. The night ended around 1am.

On Sunday after church, I took a couple of pictures. In the evening, I finally decided to do a "Nigerian Tag" video. It will be hilarious and fun. I can't wait to show you once my hubby is done editing it for me. You can check out his wedding videography blog here. After doing this video, I promise, I will be doing more videos about styling, beauty, food and anything. 


If you have a video suggestion, please let me know.

Since fall is right around the corner and the weather is getting chilly, I dug up this jacket that I bought from Zara a year ago while it was on sale. When it comes to fall, it is easy to loose your style to black and grey colors; therefore, I always love to add a touch of color. Mustard and purple are one of the great colors for fall. Combining both colors is refreshing. The deep purple tone calms the mustard color and at the same time making it more vibrant.

Since both colors are obvious, I decided to keep the accessories to a minimum. Wearing beige pumps is very soothing and softens the look. Wearing black pumps will give the look a darker/tough look which I didn't want. My Michael Kors bag was a perfect blend to the outfit without taking much away.

Neutral Day At Work

www.jadore-fashion.com

Hi everyone! Hope your week has been going well. At the moment, I am trying to get back to my regular routine, while fighting this cold. I have been coughing and sneezing so much that I am scared that I might sneeze out my brains lol! Kleenex and lysol are my biggest buddies right now. Hopefully, I will feel a lot better by the weekend. The change in weather is not helping at all. I need to stock up on sweaters and coats.

PAO_6300-2041966472-O

As the weather changes, I can't wait to start incorporating fall items into my style. You will notice that I will be wearing darker colors come fall, but this doesn't mean I will be leaving my love of mixing prints behind. Some of the main things that I wil be incorporating into my style this fall and winter include: jewel tone colors, red, plum/burgundy colors, character sweaters like my JCrew sweater, brocades and so much more. Stay tuned! ;)

PAO_6298-2041966470-O

To my outfit for the day... This picture was taken after a long 10 hours work day. Since I spend most of my day at work, I try to always keep my outfit interesting, fun, but yet work appropriate. On this day, I wanted to wear something subtle, clam yet exciting. The addition of the polka dots' JCrew top adds a flare to the outfit by preventing it from being dull or muted. Also my go-to Zara bag solidified the outfit and the color tied the different neutral shades together.

Inside Virgos Lounge A/W12

The long awaited time is finally here. Today, Virgos lounge launched the Autumn/Winter collection on it's site. I browsed through the current collection which includes colored leathers, peplums and many vintage inspired party dresses. I can't wait to wear one of their dresses for my yearly dinner with friends. Some of the items that I have my eyes on include: Lexy topKarla skirtZizi shorts, Mollie skirt and Lita skirt to name a few. 

Here is a glimpse of the A/W12 collection...

There are so many more items that I love from this current collection. I remember wearing one of my favorite items from Virgos lounge for a bloggers' event in Nigeria last December here--in fact, it should be called 'Stella' shorts ;)

Dots & Leopard

PAO_6317-2041966768-O

Hi everyone! Hope you all had an awesome weekend. Mine was an interesting and fun weekend. I tweeted and posted pictures on my instagram related to my experience. My first time in San Diego, California was definitely fun. My hubby and I, in the company of more than ten friends travelled to San Diego for a wedding. There was never a dull moment being around our friends and our presence was felt at the beautiful wedding...lol

PAO_6314-2041966685-O

Now, I am back to my reality and I am currently down with a sore throat. In my usual self, I am not allowing the sore throat to weigh me down even though I slept throughout the day.

PAO_6350-2041967846-O

If you look closely, you might recognize this skirt. I wore the same skirt, but a different color here. Something I love about this Asos skirt besides the beautiful polka dots is the fitting. It fits perfectly. Also the color is great for fall and can be paired with tights.

Get Inspired: NYFW Street Style Spring 2013

As the Spring 2013 New York Fashion Week comes to an end, the street styles leaves me wanting more. Besides being inspired by arts, editorial, or just plain intuition, street style is another way to get inspired. When it comes to fashion week, I am so engulfed at the styles and excited to see what my favorite fashion insiders and editors will be wearing. For me, I also love to pay attention to details and out-of-the-box styles. It is fun to thrown on anything; but it is even better to have a sense of what works for you and being creative.

Here are some street styles that inspired me...
Taylor Tomasi-Hill
Shala Monroque

VIRGOS LOUNGE LAUNCH AW12 COLLECTION

304778_10151235181416929_1836899014_n

This season sees Virgos Lounge introduce a unique fashion film to celebrate the launch of their AW12 collection, showcasing the new designs in their full splendor. The three-minute viral film captures the beauty, detail and delicacy of the brand. The combination of contemporary silhouettes, trend led designs and vintage inspiration comes together to create affordable unique statement pieces for fashion forward women.

Opt for the understated black beaded Ariela or Raina gowns or stand out from the crowd in bright red, sunshine yellow, deep purple or midnight blue party dresses. Leather detail peplum tops and the Ziggy beaded leggings add a rock chick edge to the collection, while beautiful embellishment adorns cropped tops and high waisted skirts.

Stand out styles in the AW12 range include the Bee and Aggy jackets. Bee is an oversized statement jacket adorned with bright yellow triangular beading, while Aggy is swirled with beading and sequins in multiple colours. These statement jackets do all the talking so team with a classic black dress or jumpsuit.

Virgos Lounge was created by three Virgo friends, who not only share a zodiac sign but also a mutual love of vintage clothing.


The Autumn/Winter Collection will launch on Tuesday September 18th 2012
Get ready to shop: VirgosLounge

Recap: IFBCON & NY

On the 2nd and final day of the conference, I took the time to assimilate the knowledge acquired and make new friends while looking for more opportunities to network. I was motivated and excited for the future of Jadore-Fashion. I have worked so hard on my blog and desire to take things to a whole new level.


I am still reveling in everything I learnt during the two-day event. It was definitely worth the time and commitment. Definitely a great way to kick off fashion week.

Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2013

This collection takes a queue from the 60s and 70s, shown in some of the separates. The combination of floral prints, sporty looks and relaxed pieces, no wonder Lauran Conrad was sitting front row. I can definitely see her in some of these pieces especially the floral top.

Something I love about this look is that it is fun, versatile and edgy with a feminine touch. Again, each pieces are wearable.

What are your thoughts?
