I’ve always had a thing for sunglasses. I have about 30 pairs of sunglasses, maybe more – and that’s not counting the ones I just recently gave away. To me, sunglasses are the ultimate accessory. They can transform your look and elevate your style. I have some designer sunglasses and some not-so-designer. If I’m being honest, probably 25 of the 30 pair of sunglasses I own are regular/schmegular. Ain’t nobody got money to spend thousands on sunglasses. A pair or two from Mr Price or as the posh people call
You don’t have to be rich to look stylish, you only need to have good taste and or – in my case – be discerning. People have this misconception that to look stylish/expensive/boujee, you need to have lots of money but that isn’t true. You can be rich and not stylish. Conversely, you can be poor, or at least living on minimum wage and be stylish. Ever heard of the term “hobo chic”? Ha! It bears no relation to this but you get where I’m going with this, right? If
There is no force more powerful than a woman determined to rise – Bosa Sebele Happy Women’s Month! I’ve always been inspired by strong, ambitious women. Women who know what they want and go after it no matter what. It’s incredible how much we can achieve when we put our mind to it. Can I get an Amen?! What better way to commemorate women’s month than by featuring one of my personal favourite Nigerian designers, Jaymodiva’s recent collection. The newly launched fashion collection, She Is Me celebrates the strength, resilience,
I can’t believe we’re halfway through the year already, can you? Time really does fly. Did you start this year thinking it’ll be the best year yet? How is it going so far? As for me, it’s been a year of rediscovery and learning. It definitely has not gone exactly according to plan but I’m not complaining. But before I get all deep and philosophical, let’s move on to a lighter topic, shall we? S-H-O-P-P-I-N-G, yay! I’m an online shopping kind of girl. Why? Because it is easy and convenient.
And we’re back to regular schedule! (Blog post every Wednesday and Friday) First off, I feel like I owe you, my loyal readers, an apology for the silence. You don’t deserve it and I’ll do better. It is currently 2:15 am and for the past three to four days, I have been working non-stop on an assignment so much so that I’ve had very little time for anything else, not even to eat. I recently went back to study and the schedule with everything else I have going on is
Winter is coming… Is your wardrobe winter-ready yet? If not, you are not alone. There are only a few items that you need to have in your wardrobe to be winter-ready and they are: Coat Boots Scarf Sweater If you have these then you don’t need to buy anything else. Ha! If only I believed my own lies. As many clothes as I have, I find that the desire to buy more and add to my already full wardrobe never ceases. I’m always on the lookout for something new to
When it comes to style, I love the idea of being able to style an item of clothing in several different ways. I enjoy the challenge of thinking outside the box and coming up with more than one way of wearing a piece of clothing. Everyone wants to look “brand new”, unfortunately, not everyone has the budget to do so. But when you invest in quality, versatile pieces, there is no reason you can’t wear it again and again and look different each time you do. It’s a lazy and
The Polka dot trend is back and she ain’t never going nowhere ever again. Polka dot is one of those feminine trends that we girly-girls appreciate. And let me tell you, the black and white polka dot owned the Paris Spring 2018 runway. Whether it’s the oversized ’80s iterations at Carolina Herrera’s runway show or Jason’s Wu’s romantic dresses, this trend made quite the impression. There’s just something about polka dots. I ain’t never seen a black and white polka dot outfit that I didn’t like – it’s just so reminiscent of the ’60s.
Can you believe it is the last month of the year? Damn, me neither! Party season is here and like most people on the planet, finding THE outfit can be challenging. I personally do most of my shopping online these days and one of my favourite places to shop is on SUPERBALIST. With over 500 local and international fashion brands, you are bound to find something for you. And with party season around the corner, you don’t have to stress about going to different shops in search of an outfit.
Summer is here which means it is swimwear season. Queue the beach, yacht and pool parties. But first, did you know that understanding your body shape is paramount to getting the right swimwear. For example, I have somewhat of an athletic build, and petite sized boobs so if I am to wear a bikini top, I like it to be padded. I would most likely buy swimwear that flatters other parts of my body that I don’t mind being on display, like my back. I also don’t like my butt cheeks
