Hey guys!

I am back again to disturb your peace! Donโ€™t hate me for it *makes puppy face*. But I have something really exciting to share with you.

I canโ€™t believe itโ€™s March already- about 60 days of the year gone! I hope we have all been up to something productive?ย  – Well, I have, thankfully.

In this post, I have taken it to the streets – literally. Lol. I have always been fascinated by not only vintage clothing and fashion but also vintage architecture โ€“ the sight of colonial buildings give me such a rush! I know, I am misplaced in time- I should have been born in the 70โ€™s or 80โ€™s. I am amazed at how simple yet solid the buildings are and how the designs look basic โ€“ compared to what we have now- yet classic.

Even though some of the buildings were dilapidated due to no maintenance- it was particularly challenging to find decent places to shoot โ€“ I was still able to work around it and put together this post. (Thanks to Seyi โ€“ Heโ€™s the photographer and also helped with direction on location. โ€“ Heโ€™s amazing!)

For my outfit, I choose all black as the base – because itโ€™s my favourite colour. I have added a little pop of colour with the blazer. Itโ€™s a mix of navy blue and burgundy. Itโ€™s made out of 100% wool and itโ€™s 100% comfortable.

I have accessorised with gold because I feel it sort of brings the whole outfit together for a cohesive look and a great finish! The second reason, I am sure we all know by now โ€“ if you donโ€™t, read previous post hereย .ย *wide grin*

Fashion Tip: Black, a neutral colour, can be combined with almost any other colours. Look at it as a blank canvas on which you can paint on. So you can add colour to an all-black outfit and it would come out stunning but be careful not to use too many different colours โ€“ it might just turn out a hot mess!

I would have to stop here โ€“ I know, donโ€™t be sad- sometimes good things have to end. But I would be back again soon. Enjoy the pictures and let me know what you think โ€“ Feedback is essential.
