OUTFIT: ANOTHER OUTFIT POST, ANOTHER RETRO LOOK…IN PLAID

Current Jam: Aisha by BOJ ft WANDE COALplaid (7)Hey guys,
Short weekend hun? ūüė© just typical, lol.

I have come with another outfit post…another retro look in this plaid skirt I thrifted months ago, I think it cost me about 300 naira or so.plaid (3)I like how plaid is coming back (totally down for fashion comebacks ūüėČūüėČ) so I decided to share with you one of the many ways to incorporate plaid into your style.plaid (2)The print can be tricky, so I suggest you pair your plaid with a plain shirt like I did (till you feel like you’ve gotten a hang of it), you could go for a more fitted shirt or even a crop top depending on your preference.

plaid (6)The socks and shoes thing going on here is so I really hit the retro look ‚Äėhard‚Äô (you know me, I’m all about that retro) loool. Remember this blowfish shoes I got months ago? Totally still paying off.plaid (5)Finally, my fanny pack, I think you should get one of these, they’re ‚Äėdope‚Äô ūüėČ.plaid (1)That’s all for this look, I hope you have a lovely week, don’t forget to subscribe.
Till the next post (hopefully Thursday) where I’ll be bringing you a non-outfit post like last Thursday. ūüíēūüíē

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.

LOVING THE 90’s

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

img-20161008-wa0000

Heyyy,

So‚Ķ it turns out that I am a 90‚Äôs 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‚Äôs). If like myself you‚Äôve seen Dope the movie, chances are that you would definitely just love‚Ķ the whole retro Denim fashion styles and bikes too (I can‚Äôt ride a bike to save my life, I‚Äôd rather pull up in a whip to the joint ūüėŹ).
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 ūüėä). From Denims to vintage shirts, shoes, bags, scarfs‚Ķretro 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 ‚Äėem).

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.

*Special thanks to my friends Temi and Lekebaks*
What I wore

Jacket- New look

Tank- Atmosphere

Kimono- T&S

Jeans- Kirkland Signature

Shoes- Adidas superstar 2

Belt- I took it out of my mum’s skirt

Socks- I thrifted ‚Äėem

*You could swap the belt with a vintage scarf or belt
*You could also pair this outfit with a pair of sandals
Just own your clothes girl.

Have a lovely weekend ūüíē

Would you rock this look? What vintage pieces do you own and how do you style them?
