My name is Nneka. As a general rule, I don’t do sleeveless. Why, you may ask? Honestly, I’m not always comfortable baring my arms. Some of you understand my struggle. My preferred option is always sleeves, but if care is not taken, the sleeved options can look old and matronly. One day a good friend and I were discussing sleeved dress options for a wedding, and I expressed this concern. She told me, “But you are the queen of dresses with sleeves, and they don’t make you look matronly.” And that’s how the name and concept of this blog was born! I am on a constant search to find items, particularly dresses, with sleeves that look youthful and fashionable. It can sometimes be difficult, but with the right styling, it can be done! I decided to start this blog to inspire myself and those around me to be confident, chic, and fashionable with sleeves! Welcome to my blog!! Thanks for stopping by…stay awhile!

  1. Love this Nneka! I don’t like sleeves bc I have stretch marks on my arms. It was very difficult to find a wedding dress with sleeves at s bridal store so I’m getting it custom made.

    1. Thanks, Jessica!! I knew I was not alone in my quest for sleeves! I can’t wait to see your wedding dress…I have no doubt it will be beautiful! I’ll probably have to go the custom route too whenever I get married. 🙂

  2. Love the blog! I have the same concern about my arms and as soon as I saw the name of your blog, I knew instantly what the inspiration was. I’ll definitely be a devoted follower, looking for fashionable styles and tips.

  3. You know you are my sleeved shero! People ask me about why I don’t expose my arms often if at all. I love, love. LOVE everything about this! Consider me part of your sleeved kingdom!

    1. Thanks so much, Sandy!!! Lol @ sleeved shero in my sleeved kingdom. I love it! Welcome to the kingdom! Feel free to contact me if there’s anything specific you want to see!

  4. Hello Nneka! I was searching and searching for the beautiful collar worn by Omerosa on Say Yes to The Dress and found you! Thanks for the correct name of this collar and i want to order it right away. I am not a sleeveless person either. I also thought that Omerosa looked cute with this collar. I also can’t find a picture wearing it. I did manage to locate the episode (Season 15, Episode 5), but i don’t want to pay for it. Since i found the collar, i will just order it. Thanks.

    1. Thank you so much, Karen!!! I know what you mean…it was impossible to find a picture of what Omorosa wore on Say Yes! I’m glad I could help you find what you were looking for!

  5. The sleeve child in me what’s to be like you when she grows up! I have always felt the very same when it came to my arms and options of clothing out there were usually sim pickings. Thanks for this blog and your wealth of knowledge! You have ALWAYS been a fashionista!!! ❤️
