Introducing: House of Phills

''House of Phills'' is a cycle, an extension of how far we've come.....
Elite Clothier was established in the year 2004. It's a fashion house with all kinds big designers/labels. From Italian to French, Spanish, Uk, we cut across all kinds of people.
This Empire is owned and managed by Yomi Phillips(C.E.O)

''It all started from my university days, fashion has always been a part of me, I always loved looking good and smart. Then I decided to take it up from there by following my passion. I enjoy going extra mile to satisfy my customers, because thats the only way I grant them original brands. We are in an era where replicas are gradually taking over the market and the real fashion sense. So I always try as much as I can to get my collections directly from the source. My role model is Roberto Cavalli, my mission and dream is for the world to know my name(House of Phills)''

Trend Alert: Flared denim A.K.A Hipsters


Such a beautiful morning, How was your weekend dolls? I had a good one though. Guess what came back in vogue, ''hipsters'' but now its called ''flared jeans'' I'm sure y'all wore hipsters when it was in cos that was basically the only type of denim you could rock. Now, I dont know if u were able to keep yours, but if luckily you did,  you might have to recycle...get it out and rock now, well only if its still your size.

Faces at Grammy Awards 2013


And so, the 55th grammy awards is here...I love the way it wasn't all about wearing train dress and ball dresses to the event. Celebrities like Adele, Beyonce and Rihanna went out on a limb in bold colors and unexpected prints and silhouettes. '''The Grammys'' is all about experimentation and alot of ladies who took chances, made it work and had me looking twice ... in a good way, good enough to wish for what they have on..lol

''The Looks''...by Visage makeover

Power shoulders suede jacket+peg pants


So, I'm wearing a soft suede jacket on a peg pant. I accentuated the waist so it could give me the peplum effect. I like the jet black colour on the tan colour. I love the fact that the jet black seems like the only colour I have on, lol. Love the blend of the tan on my skin tone. So I chose a nude coloured stainless-cap-toe court shoe to go with the outfit...Cheers

WorkAppeal: Work Edition

Look at Fit

“It’s all about the right fit," says designer Christian Siriano. "You want your clothes to fit appropriately, to be comfortable, but still look like you really put it on in the morning. You weren’t just like, ‘Oh I have to wear this blazer today to work,’ and you put on this frumpy blazer. You want to put on something that really fits you and looks amazing. Sometimes you can have the most basic items, but if they don’t fit right, it’s just not appropriate, and for work, that’s an important thing

Fanspiration: Fashion lover: Sandra

 Her words: ''I'm a huge fan of your blog, sincerely, you do inspire me in a way. You are an icon that potrays fashion in a unique high barrel. I also notice when you put on a dress, any kinda dress, you try to impose all the genres of it going from decency to cooperative to classy to boyish(at times, lol) and still somehow remain daringly sexy. Ma thumbs up in the air''  Thank you so much Sandra

Embellish your lapel

Designers went deliriously mad for menswear this season. Play up your work blazer or a somber coat with an intriguing accent on the lapel: a two-toned pocket square or a floral pin that puts a femme twist on the tailored trend.

My SAG Awards fave looks...

There were some beautiful looks on the SAG Awards red carpet this weekend! My favorites were:
Nicole Kidman in Vivienne Westwood. So elegant. I loved the straight hair and emerald earrings with this amazing dress. Anne Hathaway in the Giambattista Valli illusion panel dress. I love that she made black look stunning and not simple or basic. Jennifer Lawrence in navy blue Dior. I looovveee this look with the red lip and the side part. January Jones took such a risk with that Prabal Gurung dress and funky hair. Loved it!
