Vintage Silk Jacket X XcessP

Hello, how is everyone doing? I hope this finds you well, and I hope you all are basking in the love that fills this festive season. For those who care, I am on a 3 weeks break from school, and I am enjoying every bit of it. I just got back from a 1 week vacation to Missouri, and I am very much thankful that I got to spend quality time with family. I have always been fascinated by guitars, so I finally made up my mind to get one. Yes beautiful people, I will be a proud owner of an acoustic guitar very soon. What will I name her? time will tell. Can I play a guitar though? No I cant, but I will learn.

Okay, I am done with updating you all on my life. Lets get to business. With this outfit, I was going for a  casual yet stylish look, so I gave the simple outfit an entire twist with the jacket. The silk scarf print jacket has a vintage/urban feel to it that will give ones outfit a chic and dainty finish. The prints on it are well pronounced and busy enough so I toned it down with a plain white polo shirt and blue jeans in order not to look out of place  in order to make the jacket stand out in the outfit. Another way of me saying "I know you see my jacket and you wish it was yours". Passing a message across with my mouth shut huh? Haha okay, I am done.

I have on a brown hat, and I will let you in on a little secret. Promise you will keep it between you and I. Yes? Okay deal. Here goes my secret: It was a bad hair day, and I was in critical need of a haircut so I used the hat to hide the rough hair. Sshhh..don't tell anyone I told you that. Enjoy the rest of the pictures below

On a final note, I hope you enjoyed the post. It's never too early or too late to make a resolution. Some people wait until the new year before making changes in their life. For what? who even says tomorrow is promised? Make all changes the very moment you realize you need to make a change. If you didn't get any other thing from this post, I hope you got that, and you hold on to it. I sat down and brainstormed on a few things to make this blog better, and by Gods grace this blog will grow extensively in a few months. I pray the new year welcomes us all with blessings, happiness, and success. Happy new year my friends. Stay XcessPified.

Clarks X Supreme (Fall/Winter collection 2012)

I will like to describe this as a grandeur aesthetic union between Clarks and Supreme. Supreme is a brand founded in 1994 by Ryan Woods. Supreme is known for its simple, distinct, and youthful garbs. Clarks on the other hand is a british brand founded in 1825, and it is known for its classy and preppy shoes. Both brands teamed up to give us this beautiful offsprings which were released as part of their fall/winter collection this year. Clarks teamed up with Supreme to add a twist to the venerable Clarks wallabees. The upper part of the shoe is made of nubuck and it is embossed with Crocodile patterns. It is amazing how a little change can make such a daint difference. The collection comes in 4 different color ways, and I am absolutely in love with every one. On a lighter note, if you are fan of Clarks, and reggae dance hall music, this might just be your favorite song ever HERE

What are your opinions on this collaboration?

Fall wear X Nike X Harris tweed

Its been a very good minute since I last made a post. This is due to different reasons. Well I am back now and that is all that matters right? Yes, I thought so too :). On a slightly chilly/windy 64 degree Celsius day this was an ideal outfit for me. It provided sufficient warmth and style needed. Just so you know, layered outfits have a special place in my heart. Not only because they provide more warmth, but also because one can play a lot more with the pieces one combines together. I am ready for the winter season, are you?

I have on a denim button up shirt on a black t-shirt crowned with a red jacket. An outfit is not complete without accessories so you know I had to have had my rings, necklace, and brooch on.

The collar and tip of the sleeves of the jacket are made out of brown corduroy (The little details make a big difference sometimes). On the other hand, the brooch is made out of ankara African fabric.

The shoes are a product of a collaboration between Harris tweed and Nike. A lot of people may not be familiar with Harris tweed, but Harris tweed is a Scottish brand that specializes in producing well crafted garbs like jackets, bags, and shoes made out of tweed. The shoe is made out of leather and tweed with an embossed Nike tick. Tweed is ideal for a cold weather, and hardly does one ever come across sneakers made out of them, so hey good job Harris.

Instagram? Yea, I have one. Follow me @XcessP
