Current Favorite: 80’s Films by JON BELLION
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.
Till next time.xx
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!
Present jam: I’m yours by ALESSIA CARA. What’s yours?
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.
*Special thanks to my friends Temi and Lekebaks*

*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.

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