SPRING/SUMMER BLOGGING

Hey guys! I am Back!

I just wanted to give a quick post on my return. As usual I do not blog during the winter for whatever reason I do not even know myself but it seems to work for me. As Spring is finding it way out and Summer slowly approaches I will be back with my very first post soon. I am happy to say that I will be collabrating again with RedHeadCreative studio Chicago for my #ChichiInTheCity Series. I cant wait to style my personal looks and slay all over the city of Chicago.

Every year they are making lounge wear look fashionable! The fashion is in the shoulder cutout. Not only did Vetements showcase this trend, but other designers such as Jeremy Scott did as well.  This will be a big trend Spring 2017 so be on the look out!

Boyscout Sash

Remember when being in girl scouts was cool? Well the sash is back and it’s better than ever! The boycott sash hit the runway in many shows this New York Fashion Week. Make sure you hop on this trend before it’s hot.

Sleeve Slits

We talked about the shoulder cutout being a hot trend, now it’s time to talk about the sleeve slits. This simple slit in your sleeve can take your outfit from drab to fab! It’s very trendy and gives a sophisticated look.

Graphic Essential Tee

Your choice in graphic tee can say a lot about you. Perhaps you’re a vintage-Ramones-tee kind of girl or a high-fashion animal lover à la Kenzo or Givenchy type.

ALWAYS A LADY

Hey guys, I am back with another collaboration with RedHeadCreativeStudio with my project “Style in Chicago” featuring the best of my personal style captured around the city of chicago. This time, I decided to incorprate another zurikgirl  item.

I am wearing Zurikgirl “Shakara Oloje” Skirt and I turned my over sized button Up shirt into an off shoulder top. If you follow me on my snapchat (@chichi_nneka)  you will understand my love  for reconstructing, tweeking and DIY(ing) all my clothes. This season, I am all about the obvious details like ruffles and layers,  a wrapped waist, a slashed cutout, or an asymmetrical hemline to liven up any look.

We shot this look on the busy intersection of Broadway, a major street in Chicago’s Lake View, Uptown, and Edgewater community area. Random fact: The name of the street was changed to Broadway on August 15, 1913, my birthday is on August 16th. :).  Broadway is the only street in the city of Chicago that does not have a suffix. It is neither a Street, Avenue, Road, Boulevard nor Parkway; known simply as Broadway, how cool!

Casual Cute

Through out this spring and summer I have the pleasure of collaborating with RedHeadCreativeStudio in a new project “Style in Chicago” featuring the best of my personal style captured around the city of chicago. So expect some cool looks all through this ss16 from me in some of chicago famous locations. This past weekend I had my first shoot and of course we shot this look  around Millennium Park second most popular tourist attraction in Chicago. I decided to go for a casual and playful look; most often what comes to mind are jeans or khakis, paired with any top, including a T-shirt, as long as it looks polished.
