It’s almost the end of summer! The green leaves are turning brown the weather is getting a bit chilly and the summer outfits are going to the storage. ....... PAUSE!
Hmmmn, I’m here to let you know that the Summer outfits does not have to go away just yet. Maybe some clothes can go to the storage but definitely not all. I will give you some tips to transition your summer outfits/ wardrobe into the Fall. 

Add Boots to Everything: I’m talking about your ankle boots and knee-high boots. Think about boots with your shorts and a t-shirt! Think about boots with a skirt and cardigan! Think about boots with skinny jeans and a cute t-shirt. 

Layer Up: layering up your clothes is not only for winter, but you can also layer up during fall too! Your summer dress can be useful in so many ways. You can rock a turtleneck top with your summer dress.

Bring Out Your Jackets: As we transition into a new season, this is the time to bring out your coats and jackets from the past year. Your leather jackets, your coat, your teddy bear jackets, all of em’

Play with colours: it’s not only during summertime you have to play with colours. Add different colours to your Fall outfit and you would look so chic. Colours like green, neon yellow, burnt orange, burgundy, and so on.

Accessorize: it’s about that time you get your scarf (scarves) hats, berets, even gloves!!

Let’s take a look at today’s outfits. We have this cute Pink look, this is giving me both summer and fall vibes. Hahaha!! As you can see, I switched my heels (summer wardrobe) into a pink cozy-looking ankle boot (fall wardrobe). Also, I wore a turtleneck top (fall wardrobe), when in summer I could wear a crop top or a t-shirt. I kept my mini skirt (summer wardrobe) but I also added my black beret ( fall wardrobe) which I got from H&M.

Beret: H&M
Top: Thrifted
Skirt: Thrifted
Ankle Boots: Thrifted

Hey Beautiful People! How are you feeling today? I have been doing good, taking breaks as needed and also I started a business!! yes! yay!!! ehhehh,, hahaha!!<< To be honest, I do not know how to behave. I'm super pumped and also excited about this new project. My page is @tainizcollection on Instagram and Depop. I sell vintage, pre-loved/used and sometimes used items (mostly clothing, bags and shoes).
Thrifting and buying second-hand clothing has always been part of me. This brings me to the topic today which is How to find your personal style and the confidence to wear it. 


Finding your personal style or aesthetic can be hard sometimes. There are so many styles in this 21st century. This social media age, it's very common to find so many people dress in so many ways. Some styles are 90's vibe, some are edgy, some are streetwear, some are modest, others are chic and so on. The real question here is How Do I Know My Personal Style?.

1. COMMON OUTFITS:  Ask yourself this question, what outfit do I  like to wear every time? Go to your wardrobe and pick out 10 items you like to wear. Is it sweatpants, is it all black, is it pyjamas all day (lol),?. This will help you to figure out the common outfits you wear and also a good start to find your personal style.

2. SOCIAL MEDIA: Social media such as Instagram, Pinterest, and even Tumblr can help with finding inspiration. I mostly use Instagram save button and Pinterest board. After that, start dressing like the style that inspires you. For example, I saw a picture of a lady rocking an oversized blazer and I decided to purchase an oversized blazer and I took pictures in it. I looked amazing!!!! Most of the times, the outfit inspiration does not look good on you but it does not hurt to try.

3. LIFESTYLE: Lifestyle can definitely inspire your personal style. For example, being a Muslim can inspire you to cover your hair or dress modestly. On the other hand, if you have a professional 9-5 job, you would want to have more casual outfits in your closet.

4. YOUR OUTFIT, YOUR MOOD: I know how it feels when you go through your whole wardrobe and you still can't find anything to wear. Ngl. It's not every day you look cute, sometimes your mood can be wearing pyjamas all day. Hahaha.

+ CONFIDENCE: Finding your confidence is a big part of finding your personal style. How do you feel wearing that outfit?! Do you feel more confident? Do you worry about other people's opinion?! After wearing your outfit make sure you feel confident, if so more confident. Try not to worry about what other people say or think.

                 I'm going to end this post with a quote from me @tainizcollection - GO OUT AND LET YOUR OUTFIT DO THE TALKING 

                                  Top: Dynamite
                                          Pants: Zara (Similar)  
                                 Bag: Matt&Nat
                                      Shoes: Urban Planet

       Hey Beautiful people, Today I will be spilling the tea on how to always look stylish. Being a blogger or looking classy and expensive does not have to put you in debt.

      Today's look is very chic and classy. I got the top from Dynamite, which by the way I must say that the store has nice stuff. I recently started shopping at Dynamite and I love it. The clothing/ item in the store are very affordable and at the same time stylish. I paired the top with a simple straight blue denim from H&M. To finish off the whole look, I added the shoes and bag which I got from Zara.

        Scroll down to continue reading ….....

➰ THE RULE OF THREE: Dressing by the rule of three basically means when you add three items (such as; bag, necklace belt, shoes and so on) to your whole look. In today's outfit, I followed this rule. I paired my mustard/ yellow top (1) with the same colour of shoes (2) and bag (3).

➰ JEWELLERY: Adding Jewelry to your outfit definitely makes your outfit pop. In my look, I added this gold choker from Zaful. I went with Gold to match with the colour going on. I also added 3 gold bangles in addition to the gold choker to accessorize. You can always add other accessories such as a wristwatch, bracelet, bag, shoes, sunglasses and so on.

➰HAIR AND MAKEUP: If you are like me and you don't make your hair every month or two (like what all beautiful black girls do), you can always throw in different wig every week lol. I have more than six (6) wigs and to be honest it's very convenient. All in all, Makeup and  Hair helps to elevate your look. You can go from looking like a SLASHHHH to a SNNNACCKK.

Hey Beautiful people! I had difficulty putting together this outfit together but it wasn't until I took this picture that I realized that my top and sneakers are actually best friends:). This Multicolour look is everything, it's not everyday black outfit, white outfit, or even monochromatic look. You can feel free to add pop(s) of color to make you look sophisticated. 

I got this top from Zara which unfortunately sold out, and the Wide Leg Pants from PrettyLittlething which again sold out. I added links below to similar knitwear top and the pants, so i hope that helps. Mini Sunglass from MzKayCollection. The shoes are from Urban Planet. If you read my last post, you pretty much know why I started shopping at Urban Planet lol.

Hey Beautiful people! You know yellow is one of my favorite colors. Yellow makes my skin look amazinnng. (I  had to emphasize that. lol). I've been gone for a while now and words cannot express how sorry I am. I've been so busy with things (such as; sitting on my bed and scrolling through Instagram to see how amazing other people's lives are and how I continue to procrastinate and feel insecure). Btw..... I will be touching on HOW TO BUILD SELF-CONFIDENCE AND SELF ESTEEM. 

Before I get into that topic, Let me walk you through today's outfit. I'm wearing this yellow top that I got on sale at Urban Planet. I've been so obsessed with Urban Planet after I saw this beautiful Black female cashier wearing nice red pants from there. I walked up to her to ask her where she got the pants from and she replied "Urban Planet", with a smile on her face. We became friends instantly but sadly I forgot to get her Instagram username, it's okay though. 

After getting the top, I went to H&M to get a matching beret which I found without any issue. For the skirt, your girl went to Value Village thrift store (as usual) and I got this cute size 0 skirt. Funny enough, I am size 10 but I had to destroy the skirt and DIY (Do It Yourself). The thigh high boot is from Ego, It's been 2 years since I got this and it's worth it. I Tell Ya!!!

To continue with the topic (SELF-CONFIDENCE), the first question that pops to my brain is - What is Self Confidence? Self-confidence means "your personal power". Yes, you read that right!. Everything comes from you, your judgment, your capability, your achievement, your success, your ability, your belief, your opinion, your decision, your happiness, your worth, your EVERYTHING!. Below are lists of how to build "your personal power"

➰ DO NOT CARE ABOUT WHAT OTHER PEOPLE SAY/ THINK: people will always talk and this will never end. It is then up to you to choose to care or not. Special announcement, It's not their life, It's your life!! 

➰ KNOW YOUR SELF, KNOW YOUR WORTH: You need to know that you are worth it. You are THAT BITCH!, You are THAT GUY!, If anyone does not acknowledge you, It's okay, It's dammmmnn okay. You do not need anyone to tell you that you are beautiful, You do not need anyone to tell you that the outfit looks good on you. You can always go to the mirror and do so. Self-love is the key. 

➰ ITS OKAY TO MAKE MISTAKES: in order to grow, you need to learn from your past mistakes. You need those failures to know how you can make things better when you try again. I can't remember where I got this quote but it says "if you are going through hell keep moving, because the real question is Why stop in hell?

➰ ATTRACT POSITIVITY, KILL NEGATIVITY: this explains itself. You attract whatever you receive. If you attract positivity, you receive positivity (positive life, good things and scrolling through Instagram to see how creative people are and how you can do the same). On the other hand, If you attract negativity, you receive negativity (negative comments, scrolling through youtube to see how other people are "living their best life" and how you lay on your bed procrastinating on when you will start your own youtube channel).
