Worst of all, such bags are typically not made with genuine leather.

RED | A Fall Lookbook by Memkoh

RED has been on our mind lately.

IMG_9792.JPG

We decided to highlight our newly found love for this color in a lookbook shoot that shows the best ways to style RED. After seeing these images, we hope you will be inspired and show us how you rock your red with the hashtag #RockingMyRed on Instagram.

RED-by-Memkoh-personal-stylist.JPG

As always, it was surreal putting this shoot together and even better seeing the final images.

We shot in two days.

My initial vision for this lookbook was to have about 8 girls, all wearing red. On the first day, I had to shoot with one model, the only one who showed up. A week later, I contacted a photographer I've worked with, Mr. Gbenga Sogbetun and we scheduled a shoot. The next day, he told me he would like to shoot right away. This time, two models showed up and we made do. I even had to join in on the fun despite not being mentally prepared for a shoot. 

Hope you enjoy the pictures and the video below.

RED Lookbook: The LOOKS

In this lookbook, you will find outfits from classy and formal looks, to chic and elegant office looks, sultry date night looks and of course, nice looks for a fierce day out, all in RED.

#WeddingWednesday: Brides, Bridesmaids and Couples in Red

Helloooo,

We turned Instagram to our blog last week (well, sort of) as we shared our favorite red looks from internet people – bloggers, models and regular humans alike. Those looks will certainly make it here soon, but if you are already following us on Instagram, now you see the perk of staying connected with us all around. If you aren't following us yet, add up Memkoh and never miss an unofficial blog post.

Today, we are bringing you our favorite couples who have incorporated reds and its sister hues into their wedding. Red as you know, is a bold, audacious and fiery color. You cannot be missed when donning red.

Let's start with a bold bride who wore red for her wedding.

Memkoh Box LITE

I've been toying with the idea of having a Memkoh Box LITE version for sometime now.

"What will it have? What won't it have? What will it be? What won't it be?" are some of the questions that ran through my mind as I was brainstorming this offering. For a fact, I can confidently tell you that if you want to build your closet, this is NOT the box to choose. Instead, get the Memkoh Box. This box will only come with very few items compared to the Memkoh Box which is your trusty way of gradually building your closet over time, an enviable one at that.

Everyone I shared this with welcomed the idea and we are about to put this in your hands. Tell your friends about the Memkoh Box LITE. Not only is it affordable and a super steal, but you will be getting the utmost value for your buck. The actual value of every box will range anywhere from $120 - $150, so you really shouldn't be missing out on this.

Order yours today.

Memkoh Box LITE: From You to YOU
80.00
  • Stand Out
  • Treat Yourself
  • Pamper Yourself
  • Enhance Your Style
  • Boost Your Confidence

From you to YOU: Imagine a box that caters to those little cravings...the perfect pair of shoes for date night or a night out with your girls, and accessories to complement that. Shopping doesn't always have to be done in bulk, as the little additions can make a difference in your style while boosting your confidence. So, what do you say to walking up to your doorstep after a long day and discovering your Memkoh Box LITE waiting, a special treat from you to you.

#4WaystoWear: A Tropical Print (or Palm Print) dress

Hello and happy Friday!

You know Tropical Prints was one of our Summer obsessions as listed in our Summer '17 Faves post. Today I'll be showing you how to style a tropical print (also known as Palm Prints) dress in 4 ways. I thank you all for your love and support of #4WaystoWear and we are doing everything we can to make sure this content gets to you regularly. 

SURPRISE:

At the end of this post, there is a quick video summarizing how to style this dress in 4 Ways.

 

LOOK 1: Tropical Print Dress + Metallic Slides + Crossbody Bag

Funny note: I got this bag from the men's section. I shop everywhere! :)

LOOK 2: Tropical Print Dress + Colored Denim Jacket + Comfortable Heels + Doctor Bag

I've had these shoes for years and every time I want to toss it out or sell it, I remember how comfortable it is and still keep it. You have no idea how happy I was to see it complement this look. The bag is by VanVeer bags and we have an upcoming collaboration with them. You too will be able to customize your own leather doctor bag like I did mine. Stay tuned. :)

LOOK 3: Tropical Print Dress + Rust-colored Duster + Crossbody Chain Bag + Nude Pumps

I see this look being worn for brunch. It is super duper chic. You can substitute the pumps for sandals if you prefer, but I wanted to see what this dress would look like with a pair of pumps and it looks pretty good! And don't you just love it when you find the right pair of nude shoes for your skin color? These are by Jessica Simpson. I've had them for a while. Contact me if you'd like a pair - consult@memkoh.com

LOOK 4: Tropical Print Dress + Mules + Straw Bag

It was exciting to pair my tropical prints dress with our other favorite things—a straw bag and a pair of mules. Though, I couldn't quite decide on which pair of mules to go with, so I used a bright orange pair and a neutral pair. You decide what works best for you :D
