If I’ll be honest with you guys, prior to the last month in December, 2017 I didn’t have plans of returning to the blogging scene till 2019. I was going through a phase hence my absence from social media and blogging. It was nothing serious and I was already getting used to the life. Thanks to everyone who ‘DMed’ me, giving me words of encouragement. I eventually got my mojo back but didn’t want to return how I left.Sometimes all you need is a quick reminder of those you'll let down if you end the journey. Click To Tweet
Making the decision of getting a domain wasn’t a tough one because I got so much love from you guys on the former blog and you all deserve so much better after sticking with me for about two years of blogging.
Deciding on a name was a challenge. I didn’t want to use ‘The Street Haute’ anymore because I made it up without doing proper research and it really has nothing to do with me. I don’t dress in high fashion pieces. I wanted something that would serve as an all rounder and also describe what my style centres around. After a lot of thought and stupid names, I came up with the perfect and appropriate name, ‘Something Off My Rack’. This describes my Style as I don’t like being restricted to a certain type of style. Asides Style, I’ll be blogging on grooming and some other lifestyle categories. So be prepared to have your wigs snatched! I really appreciate Desmond, Sogie and Benny for making the transition easy for me especially when I hit some snags. As time goes on, I’ll continue to update the site and add more categories to make the experience enjoyable for you guys. Cheers to a NEW BEGINNING!
One thing I’m excited about is that Baggy and Oversized pieces are coming back . Baggy sweatpants are essential for the harmattan period, especially as the weather keeps fluctuating. Terribly cold one minute and hot the next. Because of the thick cotton consistency, it provides warmth but not excessively because of the size. When styling baggy pieces, it’s always better to be minimal because anything beyond that will most likely lead to an epic fail.
I wore a graphic black T-shirt and Rose gold slides because minimal doesn’t have to be boring.Minimal doesn't have to be boring. Click To Tweet
I also went minimal on the accessories and brought the outfit together with a turtle neck wool cape.
Thank you so much for reading. I hope the tips were helpful. Happy New Year!
