Retro Meets Modern

Sunday, 4 November 2018
Hello Beautiful people, welcome to my blog.
It is almost party season (end of the year party etc) and I thought to share retro styles ..... get inspired so you are ready if invited to a retro themed event or you want to go retro for the fun of it.

Most times you find people trying to shop for a themed event,I think  there is usually no need as you have pieces that can work...just make the right hair and use the right accessories with what you already own.

The "kiko" hair I made already gives that vibe and made the rest easy. (I think it is called thread or rubber hair in english?)
Incorporate Ankara....you can even make something like this with ankara....flare pants and a jacket or another style for the top....it will be really nice....I think I will try it....stay tuned.
My favorite is the iro and buba (oleku)....I look like I just stepped out of a 70s magazine.
It also reminds me of my grandma....her wrapper was never evenly tied....lol
Which is your favourite?
How did I do?

P.S. Look 7 will be up on Saturday.

How to maximize coordinates: An ankara story

Wednesday, 31 October 2018
 Hello beautiful people, welcome to my blog.

How do we get value for the money spent on co-ords?
1. Wear both seperates as a set

2. Wear the bottom with another top

3. Wear the top with another bottom

I love Co-ords because sometimes you get 2 for the price of one.

This set is from Just you, a ready to wear brand that stocks chic and affordable pieces in vibrant prints....they ship worldwide via DHL.

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?

'walk it pose gone wrong'
Hello Beautiful People, welcome to my blog.
I decided to share these pictures that would otherwise not see the light of the day.

Pose gone wrong

I must be stylish....was that belt really necessary? Thank God I had the good sense to take it off and got better pictures since it was a collab with a Vintage Store See post here
Ugly laughing


 I forgot to suck belle and was walking like the weight of the world was on my shoulders...lol

Sleep walking
Skirt is a size bigger

I must be sexy....my sister made me stick one leg out (Jolie pose)....I am not one for poses like that so nah, aint posting that



I don't know how in God's name I thought it was a good idea to hold my shoes SMH then that face....I don't know


I don't know what I was doing in these photos SMH
Does this remind you of Igwe Tupac or not? LOL I deserve an accolade hahahahahah

 Not aesthetically pleasing to post this with the photo bomber and my facial expression is 'bleh'

I wasn't ready at all


Wrong Camera Settings



That crotch area situation .... I won't post that 🙈

I am not sure anybody wants to see my bra #sigh

This post is just to show that behind all the glam and gloss on social media lies the part people are not showing so be yourself and the world will adjust eventually. Don't put yourself under any pressure because that person you think is 'goals' is not showing what is happening behind the scenes which is actually their real life.

I will be doing this kind of post once a month.

Which is the craziest or funniest? Mine is the "walk it pose gone wrong" and belt situation 😅
 What do you think?
