Belted Virtue

Wednesday, 24 April 2019

Hello beautiful people, welcome to my blog....been a minute, but I am here now and will hopefully stay consistent here on. I plan to stick to my minimum of one post a week, so help me God.

Remember Virtue clothier from this post, click here? I got four pieces from the brand again and decided to show them to you because I love you and want you to look good without breaking the bank.

Virtue Clothier is a Nigerian brand that retails quality pieces on Jumia Nigeria, I will be leaving the links to the pieces below the photo of each.

First up is this gorgeous red dress that is yet to be on their website, this is actually my favorite of the four, I love the fact that it is tastefully fitted to my body and flattering too as it did a good job of hiding my food baby.

Virtue clothier has other equally fabulous red and burgundy dresses and I will drop the link to one of each colour that I love below.

I decided to accessorize with my favorite belt but it is also gorgeous without as you can see from the first photo of this post.

Animal prints are classics but funny enough the fashion and style gods have decide that it will be the rave since end of last year and it is very much still in trend.....so jump on the trend with this beautiful top, my favorite part is the sleeves which I didn't do a good job of photographing well (the sun the day I was shooting was not a joke .... lol)
Animal prints will forever be a thing so it is a win win if you buy this, you get to be in trend at the moment and also own a classic piece.

I decided to go all out and style the top with animal prints skirt and shoes.....prints on prints is still a thing even if it is not, it is here to stay in my own fashion books.

I am an avid British royal family fan especially more so after Meghan Married Harry....I love their love and I am rooting for them so I deliberately choose this jacket and dress set because I am going to restyle the dress the Meghan Markle way soon plus Purple is attributed to royalty so I didn't bat an eyelid before choosing this set. That and the fact that I knew the jacket will hide my food baby.....stay tuned to see how I restyle this the Meghan Markle way.

This dress embodies two of my favourite things....colour and comfort (no food baby in sight, I am sure you are tired of reading that but it is struggle for me) plus I knew how I was going to style it immediately I saw the dress so no need to not pick it......the dress is a must have as apart from wearing it over a shirt, you also can wear it:
1. Without layering
2. With a blazer over it,
3. with a denim jacket,
3. With a tee shirt over or under it with sneakers for that casual vibe so get to it....link below

Did you notice that I accessorized with belts all through? yep, hence the post title.

Virtue clothier pieces are really affordable, they have even more reduced price deals almost every time. The quality is good too, I have pieces from the brand from a year or over a year and they still look okay.
Let us also encourage our Nigerian brands by shopping from them, they have come a long way and are doing well considering the obstacles they face daily doing business.

Which is your favourite of the four? Are you a belt wearing human like I am trying to be these days?

Dressed in Dresses

Friday, 1 March 2019

Hello beautiful people, welcome to my blog.
Happy new month, may March be good to us all.  Exceedingly, abundantly much more than we can ask or ever imagine is what God will do for us. Blessings that will be too obvious we can't share the testimony as anonymous is what God will bestow upon us.....let the church say Amen!


If you are a repeat blog reader, you will know I love my ankara and I can wear outfits made with ankara everyday of the week.....when Sandiez Collection reached out to me, how could I say no to these two gorgeous outfits.


I love these two dresses because of the style which can be worn for different activities or occassions depending on the shoe style and other accessories,vibrant prints and breathable style and fabric.


 I am not a lover of snug outfits so these were right up my alley.


 Enjoy the photos....contact information of Sandiez is below.



This dress has three pockets......that sold me.




Sandiez collection is a fashion label that stocks trendy and stylish afrocentric pieces at affordable rates. They also do bespoke tailoring.
You can reach them on instagram @sandiezcollection or via their phone number 08102304416.


Are you team ankara?

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.

Related: Counting my 2018 blogging blessings


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?
