How To Wear Wrap Skirts Now

 Wrap around skirts aren’t really new, are they? I wore wrap skirts and wrap front skorts as a kid. Just like all the older fashion trends returning to the fashion scene, the wrap skirts are back and this post is on how to wear wrap skirts now.  When skirt fashion trends surface, they take over and every fashionista jumps right in. Remember when the lace skirts were the hottest thing since fire? Or when suede skirts were the skirts to wear?  Let’s not talk about the ruffle hem skirt trend and other skirt trends that have settled down now. Before …

Wide Leg Jumpsuit Outfit

 I’ve had this cami wide leg jumpsuit since the good people at Sammydress sent it over towards the end of 2016. When I received it, I immediately saw myself styling it in 2 ways, a casual wide leg jumpsuit outfit with a hat and a formal look with a plain shirt.  Fastforward to the day I eventually wore it, I had to switch up the initially planned styles to this look. First of all, I forgot all my hats back at my parents’ and went back to Abuja (my current base).  Although, I was already expecting them at the time …

How To Wear Embroidered Denim Like A Fashion Pro

 The embroidered denim trend is probably the denim trend you’re going to be stuck with for the next couple of months or even years. This, we have already seen with the 70s flare trend.  Be it flare or fitted, outerwear or bottom, the embroidered jeans and embroidered denim trend have been getting increasingly popular.

Amali Cosmetics Gel & Lacquer Collection Launch

  On February 26, 2017, I attended Amali cosmetics gel & lacquer collection launch at the nail bar on 26 Monrovia street off Aminu Kano crescent, Wuse 2 Abuja.  I got to know about the launch via a photographer’s Instagram post. Having worked with his team few months ago, it felt good meeting them again. Networking is my best bet to settle in as a blogger in this new city.  I didn’t know much about the brand or what to expect but I went for the launch anyways. Luckily for me, a friend was willing to drop me off and …

Contrast Denim On Denim Outfit

  Earlier in the week, I attended a photography class by George Okoro sponsored by MallforAfrica wearing this contrast denim on denim outfit. I wasn’t sure what to wear initially but being a class, something casual seemed right. I’ve come to enjoy wearing mule shoes a lot and this white pair that i wore with this Iro and Buba and this Ankara flare outfit have become my current favorite.   The venue was changed last minute and the new venue was somewhere i hadn’t been to before, i didn’t know how far i would have to walk from where the cab …

Ankara Flare Trousers Outfit

  I’ve been waiting to wear this pair of ankara flare trousers since i tried them on. After receiving them from the seamstress who also made this long ankara jacket, i thought of the one to wear first and eventually wore that jacket first. Looking at the length of that one and the length of the jacket in this ankara flare trousers outfit, i’m beginning to see that one as midi not long.  I wore this ankara flare trousers outfit to church yesterday and had plans to restyle the flare trousers for the Tracenaija afrobeat show that took place in Wuse, Abuja yesterday …

Ruffles Flare Sleeve Off Shoulder Top Outfit

  I’ve admired the flare sleeve tops for a while now, i even did a post on the fluted sleeves/bell sleeves trend. The same style of top in this my ruffles flare sleeve off shoulder top outfit was one of my recommendations but from a different store. When Zaful contacted me to collaborate on another post (see my previous outfit post collaboration with them), I picked this flounce sleeve top that I’ve admired on fellow bloggers for a long time  Honestly, i initially had jeans outfit in mind but changed my mind last minute as i felt jeans were too cliche. I …

Iro And Buba Oleku Style

  You won’t believe how this white lace iro and buba oleku style came about. So, it was thanksgiving service in church yesterday and everyone was asked to wear all white outfits. For weeks i thought of what to wear especially because my uncle was the chairman of the thanksgiving and the person that announced the all white outfits for the entire church.   I imagined how it would look if members of his family didn’t lead by example if I wore a different color from white. I didn’t exactly feel like spending a lot of money putting together an outfit …

Wedding Guest Outfit Idea

  I haven’t done a wedding guest outfit idea post on this blog before partly because i haven’t been a wedding guest in a very long time. I still haven’t attended any wedding recently but my outfit to church yesterday sure looks like a wedding guest outfit idea.   I’m always skeptical about buying long dresses and gowns online for fear of them not being full length on me especially when the measurements aren’t fully specified. When Everpretty contacted me to collaborate again (see first Everpretty dress collaboration), i decided to give their long dresses a try.   My first choice of …
