Simi appreciation My taste in music is eclectic. I listen to anything that sounds good, be it rock, pop, country, afrobeat, jazz or whatever. Although where I am at a particular time tends to determine the genre of music I listen to the most. Since I came back home to Nigeria more than 7 months ago, I have been listening to a lot of Nigerian music. In just 7 months, I’ve discovered some cool artists like Show Dem Camp, Falz, Ycee, Maleek Berry, Seyi Sey and Simi whose music I

Every working woman needs a jacket or 20 in her wardrobe. It is and should be a staple in any professional woman’s wardrobe. Why? A jacket is very versatile. It can be dressed up or down. Whether you’re going for a casual, formal or in-between look, a jacket can achieve all three. What makes it even more awesome is that it can be worn all year round.

The much anticipated GTBank Fashion Weekend is finally over and I’m going to give you the lowdown. Everything from the good, the bad and the ugly. I  had two weeks to plan my two outfits for the two days of GTBank Fashion Weekend and I felt like I wanted to create two very different looks. What’s the point of fashion if you’re not going to have fun with it?  If you want to see how I styled my two looks, keep on reading.  😉 The Good  GTBank Fashion Weekend was not

A few weeks ago, I decided to give online dating another try. My first online dating experience was in 2015, not too long after a  painful breakup with an ex. They say that the best way to get over a man is to get under another one and so I wanted to test the theory. While I was not looking to get ‘under’ another man, I felt the need to create new experiences and meet new people. I had tried going out with my single girlfriends and partying it up

Fashion Week is a big deal worldwide. The most recognised of them are Paris Fashion Week, New York Fashion Week, London Fashion Week and Milan Fashion Week. Fast on the heels of Milan Fashion Week is Africa Fashion International. Not as popular as the other fashion weeks but popular enough on the continent. With Africa being home to some of the fastest growing economies in the world, it is no wonder that the fashion industry is booming and hopefully soon, we’ll be able to have the same notoriety as the

I believe it was Coco Chanel who said: “Old clothes are old friends”.  I can completely relate to this because just as old clothes are old friends, new clothes are new friends. My dad tells me all the time that I have too many clothes. I, on the other hand, don’t think I have enough. What woman does?! Each item of clothing in my wardrobe has a special meaning to me. They hold special memories like the dress I wore on my first date with an ex, the shirt and

What is style? Style is not fashion, it does not buy into trends.  Style is an extension of yourself; knowing who you are and dressing to complement your body shape and personality. Style comes naturally to some while others have to learn it.  I’d like to think that my style has evolved over the years. Gone are the days when I would go OTT (Over The Top) and match my accessories with my outfit. For instance, if I carried a pink purse, then my earring, shoes and watch also had to

Ha!  Did my title catch your attention? I thought it would. I may be stressed but I’m not depressed. I stay well-dressed though, that’s nothing new. 😉 I know I’ve been absent on here for a whole month and for that I am sorry.  I  sometimes get into that space where I feel overwhelmed and stressed out because I have lots to do and don’t know where to start. I have since learnt that you start by starting. I even posted an image of this exact saying on my Instagram

To be fashion-forward is to be interested in fashion and wearing things that will soon become very fashionable. A fashion-forward person is not afraid to take risks and set trends. Sometimes it can be a miss and other times it can be a hit. At the core of my being is a fashion designer. I can’t draw/sketch to save my life but I can think of creative clothing styles (in my head) that are simple and ready-to-wear. I’m really good when it comes to altering existing clothing designs.
