I know the blog title sounds funny but sincerely, recently, I have been very mindful of what I buy. Like never before, I am very mindful of picking up pieces that I can wear, re-wear/restyle and take to very many occasions. As you know, my aim with the blog is not only to share what I wear but to ensure to teach you my dear readers how to shop less, wear more and save more. This year 2020, we continue of that journey of wearing more and saving more. Let’s do this people….
Black is the darkest hue in the colour spectrum and can be worn by all skin tone no matter how dark the person is. Think of Alek Wek, the legendary super model in an all black ensemble. Wek has one of the darkest skin tones in the world of modelling and when she wears black, she rocks it like its hot.
The truth is many people shy away from black, especially people of colour but I tell you, again, no matter how dark your skin is, you can rock black chic…..

I recently went to Nigeria and while heading off, I did some shopping for wearable, breathable, comfortable and stylish pieces.

Let’s check out my tropical lookbook featuring affordable pieces I got from some of my favourite high street stores.
Being a Yoruba-Nigerian, weddings are an exceptionally important part of our Culture. Firstly, in the Yoruba culture, when there is a wedding, most of the time, the family hosting the wedding and or their friends choose what is called aso-ebi (some sort of “uniform” for the occasion). Secondly, a Yoruba-Nigerian do not just attend weddings, we attend them in grand style. Thirdly, we have so much fun at Nigerian weddings (in general) with so much to eat, drink and great music to dance to.

Year in year out, we see some trends from the runway that we consider not wearable. I am one of those ones who consider some trends not wearable. Why?

This helps me save money as I don’t need to buy clothes all the time and saves me time too as I would always have what to wear. However, this Spring/Summer, runway fashion came with a bang a.k.a – pieces that everyday girl like myself can wear. So, today, I bring you 5 wearable trends for this Summer. Let’s check it out….

So, you don’t have to worry because on today’s post, I will share some TIPS with you on how to be the best dressed in your event….
