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 …

Long Ankara Jacket Outfit

  If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen my posts lamenting about my lack of latest Ankara styles this 2016. I finally started adding ankara styles to my wardrobe again now that they’re readily available to me. First is this long ankara jacket outfit. Initially, i wanted a midi sleeveless ankara jacket that looked just like this long ankara sleeveless jacket. The seamstress showed me a photo that looked like an Indian style so i went for elbow length sleeves instead of sleeveless.   I’m pretty sure if you search “ankara styles in vogue 2016” (the commonest …

Red Lace Dress Outfit For MDCN Induction

  The title of this post says red lace dress outfit but my red lace dress isn’t exactly a dress. I’ll let you guess for a while. Continue reading to the end of the post to find out, don’t skip to the middle or the end to find out, i’ll definitely know!   So, this was my outfit to my induction into the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria held yesterday (November 8, 2016). The induction was held at the Nigerian Airforce (NAF) conference center at Kado, Abuja. A venue that was too small for all 499 of us and …

Striped Shirt Dress Outfit

  I wore this striped shirt dress outfit last weekend but I was unable to post the outfit photos earlier because of my faulty laptop. P.S. A new laptop is at the top of my birthday wishlist and 2nd on the list is a new camera with inbuilt wifi. If i had a camera with inbuilt wifi i would would be able to blog outfit photos without always having the need for a laptop to access the photos.   So, back to this striped shirt dress from Zaful that is the main reason for the post. Over the weekend, i …

Embroidered Neck Blouse Casual Outfit

 I bought this embroidered neck blouse from a random store few months ago during an outing with a friend. I had no idea the design in front had a meaning because the back has “crazy beats” printed on it with same color as the sign which has absolutely no relations to a religion. I was surprised when i met with friends for an outing and the Maldivian told me it meant something. I’ve forgotten what she said though but my point is: In fashion, we seem to go for what looks good or trendy without always knowing what certain designs mean …

Elie Saab Inspired Jumpsuit For Graduation

  It was finally my long-awaited graduation day on June 24 and i wore an Elie Saab inspired jumpsuit in navy. As usual, i searched online for weeks and just couldn’t find anything in my proper length, the few i saw were way beyond my budget. I didn’t bother to continue my search as we entered the first week of June, i began searching for jumpsuit styles inspiration and finally found the perfect style, bought the fabrics and got something custom-made instead. A lot of things wanted to mess with my graduation day, starting from the search for an outfit, search for …
