Identity: we all have it, some struggle with it. One thing is, there’s never denying who we are. We can try to hide it, mask it, own it or express it, it’s what makes us who we are. Hands up if you’ve ever questioned who you are in terms of how others identify you, not simply because of where you are from but how you respond to a certain status quo. I identify myself as being Nigerian however I have often found myself so far removed from certain aspects for
“Style is not something purchased, it is what you create through items purchased” quote by outofbarbarasbox This Victorian collared neck ballooned sleeved top is exactly one that ticks the important shopping box. Endless styling versatility. I switch up the looks to show how easy it is to get multiple wears out of one piece of clothing whilst earning major style points. 1st look: Uptown girl about town Second look: Corporate chic with a twist Third look: Girl next door with a passion for fashion This look was photographed in the autumn.
Celebrating the best way I know how, by putting text to a HTML script along with some visuals. What a year it’s been! With Highs & Lows, Goodbyes to Hellos, lots of Laughter & fewer Tears, sometimes Tears & Laughter simultaneously. Anger & unprecedented Happiness. Friendships & Heartbreaks. Healing on the inside & Transformation, 70% Winning & 30% Loosing, Strutting & Tripping. Finally, Successes & Triumph I want to revisit this post next year, re-evaluating with the intention of measuring my growth. Knowing everything has been done to my best ability,
Hi darlings, it’s been a moment! I haven’t been away, in fact it is quite the contrary, I have simply been sooooooo busy. Life has been incredibly busy over the last few months, in between trying to consistently slay the gram, be a dutiful friend, a lover to “bea” and an amazing sister to my family. This has in turn left little room for the other love in my life which is this blog. I have set myself a new goal/challenge to get consistent with the frequency of my posts.
When I first started blogging, this metallic pleated leather skirt was one of the first looks I posted click here to read. A lot has changed since that day, but one thing I have learnt is the endless possibilities that one piece of clothing can offer. I had a afternoon date day planned with the gorgeous, Luna of swaggaismything.com and Keyma of styleweekender.com the dreaded curse of a wardrobe full of clothes and nothing to wear almost settled in. Couple of outrageous and down right riddic options later, it was time to go
If you’ve been following my blog, you will know that I love putting black and white outfits together. However this time I thought I will have a bit of fun with a checkered pattern. (Hence the pun in the title) I promise it wasn’t just to show off 🙂 I couldn’t help but throw on my Topshop floral duster jacket for both practicality and warmth This contrast asymmetric skirt from Missguided was an absolute steal paired priced at £8 paired with my Burberry Cape, gave my ensemble a
Hey everyone, sorry it has been a while and I went MIA. I have been inundated and extremely preoccupied with my job, plus sometimes it is good to take a break from something so that one can come back with a renewed mind, You might notice a few changes with the site, this is the hard-work of my amazing friend Alex who gifted me with this theme as my birthday present then further went ahead to help me install it. It is not quite where I want it to be
I write this blog post with a lot of happiness in my heart. There are times when you try so hard and it takes a long time to see the result of that hard work. I can’t emphasise how much there is the right time for things to happen. Unfortunately I can’t share in detail what brings me this sort of happiness however I want to encourage anyone reading, who is putting in a lot of hard work right now and not seeing the result to hang in there. It
I went shopping with an old friend who happened to be in town because she had a flight into London. Working as an air hostess certainly has its pecks. Seeing as we had not seen each-other in a long time, the plan was to have brunch and go shopping (my favourite sport). We made our way down to Bond Street the loud chime of the clock told me Selfridges was open…Our day could begin, I was keen to show her a part of Selfridges most people don’t know exists. We
For Victoria who was a bit bored of reading all the “floral” spring inspired blog posts. The seventies was when fashion became expressive. Think fringe pieces, tie and dye shirts and clogs. It was also the birth of the wedgies, one- piece swimsuits and jersey wrap dress. Hot pants, culottes, maxi evening gowns and even his/hers outfits were all the rage. I have put together a look that can be replicated using modern pieces with a nod to the 70’s. On the Fringe Click here to buy Click here to
