Why is Death not a dress rehearsal? + 3 work outfits

Friday, 15 February 2019

Happy new year.....yes happy new year because this is my first post of 2019.
I didn't plan for it to be so ..... 2018 actually ended on a very high note, not crack or cocaine high but happy high and I entered 2019 with big dreams, great plans, high expectations  and great energy only for life to happen.

I lost my Father on the 5th of January and life has not been the same.....nothing prepares you for the finality of death, absolutely nothing gets you ready.I wish death had a dress rehearsal and not the main act just like that......maybe one can be a bit prepared. It still feels unreal that my Father is 6 feet under.....Shame on Adam, Eve and that creepy crawly thing called snake,they brought all this upon us..........I am not sure the vacuum will ever get filled but people say it gets better with time so I am patiently waiting to see if it does.



My father's death just reiterated what I have always known which is to LIVE.....Live life fully.....do whatever sets your soul on fire and without apologies too, the world will adjust.........eventually and if they don't? So be it, just LIVE.


I am back to regular programme and just thought to share these three work outfits.  My instagram followers seem to love the check blazer and burgundy pleated skirt look better based on the likes the photo got.

Have you ever lost a family member, friend or acquaintance? How did you handle it?

Which is your favourite of the three work outfits?

How to make sequin work for work

Wednesday, 13 February 2019

Hello beautiful people, welcome to my blog.


When people hear, see or buy sequin, they think festivities like Christmas, Valentine or big occasions and red carpet events but I decided to make it work for work with the way I styled my sequin top.


Blazers make everything work for work so I decided to style the sequin top with a long line blazer and went monotone with the whole look to tone the "sequiness" of the top down and make it work as an office outfit.



I got the top from Lola's Vintage Store.....They are a vintage store that stock amazing vintage and vintage inspired pieces....you should totally check them out.I will leave their phone number below.



What do you think of this look? Can you wear something like this to work?

How to slay to work: Blazer and or suit edition.

Monday, 26 November 2018
Hello beautiful people, welcome to my blog

We spend most of our waking hours at work, we should as well look our best while at it....so rock your suit or blazer in a memorable way:

1. Mix prints.....here I mixed leopard prints and stripe. If you are not very comfortable with mixing prints start by mixing two prints or pattern then grow from there.

2. Rock Shorts in a tasteful manner.....styling an outfit to work with a beret is also a good idea.


3. Wear prints on prints


4. Wear same pattern head to toe...well almost to the toe


5. Pleats please.....and a check blazer to add little more pizazz to the outfit


6. Wear Ankara blazer.....and a lot of colour


7. Tulle is always a good idea....just make it office worthy with a blazer


I hope with this few points of mine I have been able to convince and not confuse you that you can look uber stylish to work in a blazer  and or suit.

I love my ankara and then the mixed prints....which is your favourite of the looks?

Suited in silk

Monday, 29 October 2018
Hello beautiful people, welcome to my blog.
 Don't you just love this silk suit?
I love it.....pictures do it no justice.
I got the silk fabric from the only tailor I keep, who i talked about Click here in How to manage Nigerian tailors
But since she delays I took it to a tailor I just met as per my 'tailor prostituting' strategy of this post .....click here
 And we have a very fabulous suit that I am rocking to work today.
I will also rock it to church with sandals and a clutch soon.
 I can also wear them as separates with other pieces
Fabric is 1000 Naira a yard (maybe a bit cheaper in the market) and I used 4 yards for this.
Morale of this post: you need not break the bank to look good.

P.S. There is this under wear I wear to keep things in place if you know what I mean but I forgot it when I went for this shoot and I was measured with it on......hence the crease.

What do you think of my new suit?
