I don’t know where to start, her pictures say it all. I found Kavita while I was randomly surfing the internet about 2years ago (yes that long), her picture came up in my search, I visited her blog and it was love at first sight. I convinced myself I was just going to view her pictures and leave her page, next thing I knew I subscribed to her blog and she just makes me fall deeper in love with every post and honestly I just want all her clothes.
Her style? Her style is everyyyyything. She brings it every time. She wears the kind of things you see on the rack and you are convinced they won’t look good on you, I mean everything looks good on her. I like the fact that She gives details of her outfit and lets you know if its an imitation or if she got it on ebay, a car boot sale or thrift store for £1. Wanna see more of her? Check here

What do you guys think of her? Which look is your favourite?

P.S: I strongly believe I will meet her soon and very soon :)

I have been dealing with so much lately, I barely even have time for myself and my internet has been doing my head in, urgh!
I have also been working my butt off and sometimes I don’t even leave work till like 8pm :(
I have been working with this group of people that came to Nigeria from America to shoot a documentary and I hate the fact that i have to keep the details to myself. They are the coolest people I have met in a very long time and as stressful as work is, I still wake up excited to go to work cos of them.
These pictures were taken ’bout 2weeks ago on my way to work. Some of you are probably thinking “a crop top to work?” Well like I said I work with cool people and its totally allowed :D. For some time now I haven’t had makeup on my face and I’m loving it.

Crop top – Asos
Skirt- H&M
Black bag – H&M

Stay stylish……Fola

Designers Marketplace (DMP)

On saturday i was at the Designers Marketplace . It is the Abuja version of Mente de Moda & Lpm ( tho not as Live) and its holds on the 1st Saturday of every month. I was invited by my friends Owolabi & Pelumi and we were only there for bout an hour. I wanted to take random pictures of buyers but i only got about 4 because of time.

I settled for a casual look so I wore a danshiki blouse which I bought at the Art & culture village Abuja and paired it with shorts & flat sandals but for some unknown reason I got alotta stares and alot of “hi, I like your hair”. At the marketplace my eye caught a vintage jacquard blazer and I immediately saw myself in it, tho its a size 12 I wasn’t gonna let that stop me cos I usually have my way with big clothes so I didn’t hesitate to buy it. Even though my friend told me it was ugly I couldn’t even be bothered, he is a guy what does he know about vintage.

Since I got it on Saturday I have tried it on about seven times cos I’m steady getting inspirations on how to style it. Hehehe

What do you guys think about Dashiki? I totally love how it screams freedom.

Because I’m Happy

“It is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth,but of God that sheweth mercy” (Romans 9:16)

For quite sometime now i have been in a very good mood. I have learnt to appreciate everything & everyone around me. I have had some time to reflect on basically everything.

Last year alot happened in my life and around me and it made me question myself and most of all ,i questioned my Faith, yes ! After putting my faith to work at some point i started to wonder when the results would come. I was tryna figure myself out so i thought it best to just distance myself from everybody and everything including social media and when i started getting alot of ‘Fola what is wrong you’ve been quiet” “Fola is everything okay” “Fola are you there” i knew i had to speak to God somehow.

The Word of God, the only source of truth of life asserts that, “The battle is not to the strong, neither the race to the swift” (Ecclesiastes 9:11). The reason is that “…..A man can receive nothing except it be given him from heaven” (John 3:27). To have effectual faith, Biblical faith that “subdued kingdoms,wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouth of lions” (Hebrews 11:32,34) ,you must know that there are principles guiding its operation.

I also learnt that faith isn’t cultivated anyhow, its not something just to be confessed with the mouth when it isn’t in the heart, I have been reading alotta Christian books & its been refreshing tbh. Now I have passed that stage & my heart is just filled with thanksgiving and alotta hope. I’m not big on resolutions but I have so many goals and aspirations this year and I’m just positive about it all.

White and black are two colours that are timeless & easy to combine with any colour or fashion item. I have had this blazer for quite sometime now but just didn’t get around to wearing it. I love that it can be worn as a day or night outfit. I’m honestly not crazy about double breasted blazers but I’m definitely gonna style this again, soon.

Double breasted blazer- Vintage c/o Retroreligion
Stripped Monochrome shirt – Vintage c/o Retroreligion
Jeans – Primark
Court shoes – Aldo
Bag- Zara

P.S : If there is any trend you’ld like me to style please drop your suggestions in the comment box :) i’ld love to read from you

Stay stylish, Fola……xx

BLACK

Hi guys,
Presently Nigeria is too hot for any sane person to wear black talkless of black on black. This pictures were taken bout a week ago while I was rushing to the airport. My friend literally forced me to pose for the pictures and then it took him another week to release the pictures to me *sigh*

I had a surgery about 2weeks ago so that explains the swollen face & why I didn’t wanna pose for the pictures + I was still in pain. But now I’m looking at the pictures & I’m thinking – …..what the hell, just put it up :)

What I love most about this outfit is the gold bulldog collar pin & I can assure you guys will be seeing more of it on the blog. Putting this outfit together is the easiest thing I have done in a while cos I was just looking for a reason to wear the pin so I just tot to do an all black look. The shoes are neon btw I dunno why they look like white.

Leggings – h&m
Collar Pin – Asos , get similar here
Shoes – nsync
Watch – Casio

I don’t know what you are thinking but Nooooooo I didn’t change my hair color.
I was going through pictures on my laptop,found these & I’m still wondering how/why they didn’t make it to the blog

These pictures were taken around August last year when I still had my hair colored as seen here, I miss it very much tho (black is boring sometimes). By now y’all must be tired of seeing this blazer, I mean even I am but it remains my fav + these pictures were taken the 1st time I ever wore it. I don’t have anything to say bout the outfit as it was taken a longtime ago

And so few weeks ago I had my 1st blog collaboration with my blogger crush Sayedero and we had alotta fun doing it & hopefully I’ll put up the photos this week :D
I have alotta things planned for the blog this year & I’m just very excited about it all

Vintage blazer – retroreligion
White silk blouse – Cotton on
Nude purse – Maju
Shoes – Gift
Distressed Denim- River island
