FOW

Hey Tyla Times Fans! Here is the Fit of the Week.

I wore this outfit while in Atlanta for an early birthday celebration. I chose to accent with pink because of an outfit worn by Rasheeda on Love and Hip Hop Atlanta. I like this outfit because it’s an old-school look, with a modern twist. I was completely comfortable, something that seems to be given up when dressing up for a night on the town (A bigger picture can be seen at Alltheparties.com).

I have really become quite the fan of maxi dresses and skirts, but I can’t seem to find a maxi dress that I truly like. Some of the maxi dresses I’ve tried on are too thin and show just about everything I own. Others weren’t flattering, or had ugly designs. However, I seem to have luck finding nice maxi skirts. The one below is definitely one of my favorites. It’s very festive, and paired quite nicely with the blue blouse. Since the skirt possesses so much spunk, I chose a black bag, belt and sandals. I picked these earrings because the design on them reminded me of the design on my skirt.

FOW [Late]

Well, this post is 5 days late. So, you will get two fits this week!!!

I absolutely love my jean jacket. It can bring any outfit to life! A good jean jacket is a must have! Now, I’ve never worn this color before, but I’m glad that I did. I received a bunch of compliments about how the color compliments my skin tone, and I must agree. I’d definitely like to add more of this color to my closet. I truly believe that leopard print is just like black and white. It is an extremely versatile print and can be accented with just about any color!

Fit of the Week

Let me start off by saying that I am no fashion guru. I am familiar with different brands, fabrics and trends, but I am no expert. For the past few years, I’ve been putting more effort into my wardrobe and how I dress myself. Some may not be aware of this, but what you decide to put on every morning, speaks volumes. When people look at me, I want them to know that I take pride in my appearance. I haven’t always been so keen on my appearance. It has been a progression. Nowadays, I try to embrace my own personal style without falling victim to too many trends.

With that said, I want to share an outfit a week with my readers. I hope that my wardrobe will provide some inspiration to those who need it. There was a time that I was looking to others for a fashion sense, but eventually, I found my own.

I have to add this disclaimer before I talk about my outfit below. I am in no way a baller; I recycle my closet often, sale shop and go thrifting. However, I found that since I lost weight, I’ve had to shop a little more. With that said, you’re able to dress well with minimal money and with the things you already own.
