BELTED LIKE THE 80’s

Current Favorite: 80’s Films by JON BELLION

Hello,

I know it’s been a minute. I am fighting an ‘Inconsistent War’ and I really  hope I win

Word on the street is the Big Belts are making their  way back and I totally  down for them! I’m always down for retro… The farther the better (actually, I like the 90’s best)

I like the big belt for 2 reasons. First reason is because  they can give a snatched look, they are almost like a mini corset.

Also. They are good statement pieces, you know because they are big and all up in our faces  making a statement 😂 .

For my socks and shoes thing going on, I decided  to really  make sure you really get my retro vibes.

P. S I didn’t interview any blogger this month, I lost that battle to Mr inconsistency, but the war in still on, I’ll try to win more battles.

 

Word! Your style is a representation of your person,  so always deliver!

OUTFIT: BLAZER AND PLEATS

Present Jam: Don’t wanna know by MAROON 5

Heyyy,

How was your weekend? How have you been? I’ve been good, up and down. Remember this blazer? I wore here  with a bandage skirt, so I thought I’d change it up and wear it with a pleated skirt.

OUTFIT: BLAZZER & SKIRT

 

I’m one of those people that wake up with one song in their head…. And unconsciously hum and sing that same song all day long, that’s what I mean when I say ‘present jam’ that song I sing all day… that’s my PRESENT JAM

Hello guys,

I am here with this outfit post, my first outfit post of #2017… Quite a number of people have put up their new year’s resolutions, but I thought I’d rather share with you guys any changes that occurs with me as they happen, you know… Carry you along😸 I will be doing this in my #currently I am tag.

So, outfit post 😁 outfit posts excites me because I like to share my fashion tips or ideas with you guys and I just love clothes and taking photos 😸.

I finally wore this blazzer my mum got me, it sat pretty in my wardrobe for over 3 years… Yes, you read that right 3 long years and one day, I was clearing out and I feel in love with it!! Does this happen to anyone else?

dsc_3553-01

Is it just me or it has a retro feel to it??I decided to wear it as a shirt (without a Cami) because it’s so hot here ( it gets cold sometimes… I don’t get this harmattan)

What I wore

Blazzer- Miwon

Skirt- Random (thrifted)

Bag- Random (thrifted)

Shoes- Random (thrifted)

Belt – Thrifted

dsc_3549-01

I paired the blazzer with a bandage skirt to give the look a bit of defintion since it looked like an oversized shirt (which I love so much)

I opted for  the belt to give the look more structure and retro-nness 😂

My little purse is a new favorite, I recently thrifted it, it cost #500 and I am glad I came acrossdsc_3567-01

My mules were giving me major life!!The one thing I had in mind when picking this outfit was comfort. Dear girl, get comfortable in your clothes 😊

LOVING THE 90’s

Present jam: I’m yours by ALESSIA CARA. What’s yours?

Heyyy,

So… it turns out that I am a 90’s baby (and for some weird reasons unknown to me I take a lot of pride in that) and we have got quite the retro innit? (ok, maybe not just the 90’s). If like myself you’ve seen Dope the movie, chances are that you would definitely just love… the whole retro Denim fashion styles and bikes too (I can’t ride a bike to save my life, I’d rather pull up in a whip to the joint 😏).
Retro style is quite a major trend now, whenever I go retro, my parent keep going on and on about how they rocked the style to its teeth while growing up (yeah, I got the slay from my parents 😊). From Denims to vintage shirts, shoes, bags, scarfs…retro in my opinion is just absolutely DOPE *winks*! You most likely have a vintage piece in your collection. They are effortlessly beautiful, stylish and are always mostly comfortable to wear and be in! (That is the major reason why I love ‘em).

It was very hot in Lagos when I took these pictures (until last night’s prodigal rain), so I switched the denim jacket for a light fabric kimono and I took of my socks along too.
