I have heard so many “fashionable” people say slim ladies should not wear full vertical stripes as it makes them look thin and lanky, sadly, I used to be of the same notion and I usually stayed away from vertical stripes until I found this jumpsuit.

In one of my early posts on the blog, I wore this striped maxi dress where I had a mixture of both vertical & horizontal stripes for the same fear of looking like a long stick, I’m not ashamed to say that not only was I wrong but I also underestimated the power of trying new things. this jumpsuit from Trumpet Clothing‘s Ready-To-Wear collection, is one that wiped every atom of “vertical stripes are a taboo” from my head or maybe because it is also not a full (up-down) striped piece. This is my first time of wearing a mono strap piece because my mum has never understood the need to cut half of someone’s sleeves away so she didn’t like me wearing it and I am so sure she would send me a funny message when she sees this post on Facebook. The sleeves and pants of the dress got me sold and I love how it makes me look tall, I guess I’m not so skinny after all because I definitely do not look like a stick in this piece. Paired with nude mules and a mini bag for that pop of color you know I always want, I almost wished I was a fan of accessories because a statement necklace would transform this outfit to a more glam look, regardless, this look is one for many events and you wouldn’t feel over-dressed or under-dressed in it.

Lagos had quite the scary weekend with flood in a lot of places, I hope none of you was affected to badly? Let us keep praying and hoping that our government will take this as a wake up call and do better. On the funny side though, island people, how market nah? LOL.

What’s your take on stripes? Are you a fan of mono-straps? I’ve missed your comments, let’s talk! If you have a second (I know you do), please share this post to your friends.
