When life gives you lemon: Ankara shirt dress and black body con dress

Wednesday, 1 August 2018

Hello beautiful people, happy new month. I pray August will be good to us all.

I bought this Ankara shirt dress from Abike's stylin on Instagram but unfortunately did not check their size chart so I ended up with a dress that doesn't fit *sigh.

It was my fault so I could not send the dress back or seek any form of redress. * I argued with them small

I love the print and the style of the dress and had to find a way around styling the dress so I wore it over this body con dress from boohoo.

Styled it with bag from Asos, garnished it with Check shoes from the shopper's haven on instagram and added a little pizazz with the glasses I bought from a street vendor in Abuja traffic for a whooping sum of 500 naira....not bad!

I decided to make the best of what would have other wise been a bad situation.The outcome is quite neat even if I say so myself.

Sometimes the hand life presents to us seems unfair but the best way to handle that season is to make the best of it...

Give whatever you have at hand your best shot, it may just God's way of preparing you for bigger and better may not see it now but in future you will be grateful for that 'wilderness' experience.

God can only bless you with more if you are faithful with the little you have at hand so don't throw away the baby with the bath water...

I rocked my 'little' dress to work on a Wednesday.....I made lemonade out of my lemon plus I even got a blog post from that very mundane about a win win situation.

Abike styling is an online Ready to wear store,they stock fabulous and vibrant ankara pieces at very affordable prices....I think this dress was 5000 Naira.
