The Flare Skirt

Its been so many days since January, I can’t believe its June already, Thank God. So I am starting to feel like the laziest blogger on earth that has so many things to post but never does. This year has been very eventful for me and stressful as well. I have also decided to get a camera and tripod as most times I have nobody to take photos of me so you guys should include me in your prayers :D

This is a last minute outfit I put together for a book launch i was invited to last weekend and I went with my friend Jerrie. I bought this skirt in January from my friend but didn’t have an occasion for it until now. I am not a skirt person but i just love the fullness of this one.
A very fat thank you to Jerrie Rotimi for the amazing photos, you can follow him and view his work here

My favourite :D

I’m sure my post title got y’all thinking like “…..errrrr…What’s this about”. I can’t begin to express my love for this tshirt, Its a souvenir my friend gave me from his trip to America lastweek (Thank you Toyobo). Immediately he showed it to me I knew what i was going to do with it. With everything that’s going on in Nigeria presently, the inscription on the shirt really spoke to my soul and for a moment I was sad.
The snap back on the other hand is my favourite fashion item at the moment, its crazy how I’m steady looking for reasons to wear it every day and with everything and I love how it gets everyone’s attention lol. The pictures were taken by my friend Emmanuel (view some of his work here) who is a very talented photographer, tbh I couldn’t say no when he offered to take the pictures and even though the sun was well on its way down I think they still came out nice.

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

What are your thoughts on this outfit? Please drop your comments below I would love to read from you. Have a pleasant week guys.
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.
