Welcome to today! 😀
We are featuring Alma Ezonfade of The Alma Chronicle, a blog specially curated for the every day girl who wants to have fun with her life and her style! So let’s get to it. From this line to the next line, it’s Alma all the way!
I was approached by the lovely Vivian (yas guys, I am locely! *huge grin*) to be a part of this series and I’m so excited! Am I the only one that thinks 2016 is going to be a big year for bloggers? I hope not.
My name is Alma and I’m the content creator for thealmachronicle.com. I’m currently a full time student at the University of Ottawa, Canada and a part time style and beauty blogger.
My personal style is centered around minimalist and monochrome pieces. I’m a firm believer of the phrase “dress how you want to be addressed” and this plays a major role in both my buying and styling processes (such an Engineer, lol). Looking like a classy and grown chic/woman on a student budget can get a little tasking so here are some items in my wardrobe I use in achieving this.
Basics: It’s easy to get lost in trends so I’m a huge fan of basics/wardrobe staples. Basics include everything from T-shirts (black, white, grey), The LBD, Denim (black & blue), Black blazer, White button down shirt and a pencil skirt.
Push up bra and shapewear: Hello liposuction and augmentation without the extra cash! Undergarments are as important as the clothes on the outside. While some people are blessed with Kim K typa curves, some of us have to fake it till we make it and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. Some affordable options can be gotten on Jumia or if you’re willing to go through the hassle, Instagram has a wide range of shape-wear vendors.
Tracksuit bottoms: I know this is not an ideal necessity for most girls but I am probably the laziest girl I know and this comes in handy every other day. Check how I styled a simple tracksuit bottom here
KEY TYPE OF SHOES
Being a student, a good pair of sneakers comes in handy every now and then. I am a huge fan of the Nike Roshe line because it doesn’t get better than comfort and styled mixed together.
Now on to the heels! Anyone who follows me on twitter (qveenalma_) will know I don’t play with my shoes. Give me a beautiful pair of heels and watch my mood go from street side chic to runway model real quick. Strapped sandals are however the most convenient, versatile and readily available choice.
Lately, I’ve incorporated court shoes into my wardrobe mainly because I needed my sister to shut up about how boring my shoe collection was and I’m glad I did.
One key accessory I will not be caught without is a handbag. I move around with quite a number of items ranging from wallet, phones, small ball of perfume, moisturizer, etc..and holding all these items with my ten fingers is a tad bit impossible. Ideally, I am that girl or friend that has everything in her purse.
I never invest in clothing items or style myself according to current trends. I believe in being comfortable rather than “trendy”, If it so happens that a piece of item I love is in line with the current trend, then hurray. I stick to comfortable pieces that can be worn any season/trend which brings me to this, BLACK. If I get a dollar for every black piece of clothing I own right now, I’d be able to afford my dream closet. Black pieces transition seamlessly through seasons and trends while managing to look like it just got off the store rack. Plus can I get an extra Amen for the slimming effect and the fact that black can be paired with anything?!
Isn’t Alma like a majooooor slayer? I love how she can switch up from comfy casual to
I-will-stab-you-with-my-pointy-heels-and-use-your-blood-as-red-lipstick (yes, I am quite extra) super gorgeous!
So, what do you like about Alma’s style? Tell us!
