Unsual

Hello unique.
 Hope you all had a lovely celebration, now for some of us its time to start thinking of a new year resolution, I use to do that too, but I realized early enough that I wouldn't stick to it pass January, so I have decided not to, but just try to be the best of me this coming year.
And a few days back I went out with a friend to a restaurant for lunch, only for them to serve me dried up sausage, the food was horrible. I normally would have just eaten the food as it is or just leave it not to cause trouble. But I didn't do the usual; I went straight to the staffs, gave them a piece of my mind and dump the sorry excuse of food with them. Trust me I felt great afterwards. I refuse to be a victim; I won’t accept anything but the best.  I think people end up taking you for granted when you accept the cloth of victims. 
I’m beginning to love the woman I’m maturing into; she’s strong, with a healthy dose of self esteem and she goes after her dreams without recognizing t…

The Reason For Christmas

Image
Merry Christmas, unique
Wow! Its four days to Christmas and I wanted to blog about this post a day before Christmas but I think this day suit the purpose for this post best. (The earlier the better)
It’s that time of the year again, there’s excitement in the air and a lot of people travel to spend time with love one’s, exchange gifts, buy new things and do a whole lot of fun stuff. However, for some people Christmas is a time of worry; they don’t have the extra money to buy presents for their children, family and friends.  Many are saddened at this season; when they think of their love one’s who will not be able to come home for various reasons. And in all this we sometimes forget the real reason for Christmas. But I’m here to remind us all that Christmas is a time to come together and celebrate the birth of Jesus, remembering that God sent Him to this world to save us from sins. It’s a time remind people of how God love us so much. It can be a season of great joy. It can also be a t…

Timeless Piece

Image
Hello Unique.
I recently just found out that anger can cause heart burn,cause I have been suffering from it lately, But don’t worry I have it under control. Prevention being better than cure, I decided to start by getting rid of a certain individual an things that are responsible for this anger.  I wish I can tell you guys I have succeeded in it perfectly,but somethings are harder to get rid of. ‘sign’ but I hope I will in time. OR maybe I’m the one that needs to work on being slow to anger. I’m still working it all in my mind till I see and get the bigger picture.

Now let me talk about today’s look.
For a fast and classic look, I always wear a button-down shirt with a pair of denim(skinny) and converse all-stars or heels for a formal outing. I like Investing in timeless piece like this mark & spencer shirt , because the tailoring is superb and with my designer eyes I realize the border around the arm and bottom is nothing short of genius. I love this look because its unaffected b…

Sexy in the cut

Hello unique

I wore this outfit a few weeks back to a wedding ceremony of a lovely family friend, the invitation came at the right time, because like I had said in my previous post that I’m now ready to honour every party invitation I receive.  I hardly honour wedding invitation, not because I don’t like the ideal of two people deciding to love each other till death do them part, but because I will rather stay  home and read my romantic novels, yes! Mills and boon, Avon, zebra silhouette, Harlequin, name it. That's why I'm still standing by my window waiting for my knight in shinning amour. LOL. And my favorite author is Julie Garwood.
When I got this material (ashoebi) I wanted something sexy, anytime I go partying  I either blend-in or stand-out.  I choose to stand-out by making sure I add some unique detail to the dress,  The cut out at the shoulder  and the red ruffle at the bottom. I also made sure I sew the dress an inch less than my actual size: to get a body-con like dr…

Practically Trendy

Hello unique.

Whats up with you all?(Trust me I’m interested). I made a part with myself recently to go out more,socialize and experience new things every week, stay off the internet on regular bases and meet physical friends cause most of my friends are on the internet, which means I haven’t seen most of them In person. I also promised to attend every party I’m invited to, no more lame excuses. Can't allow life to pass me by.  My last week experience was me visiting game-city to watch a 5D movie in the cinema, its was so real that I thought I was part of the movie. Speaking of movies this is what I wore to watch Thor 2, this movie keeps getting better, I love it,and I think I’m beginning to like Loki, he’s so funny lol. I’m not the type that follows trend, except  its practical and serve my purposes.
 This vibrant plaid shirt is serving two purpose for me, one to cinch my waist line and give the illusion of curves, because of the oversize sheer top I’m wearing. (I had to wear the…

Hang in there

Hello unique.

we all sometimes need a few pointers on inner strength,this in turn makes us realize that we aren't the only ones who have gone through hard times,that we can get through anything with a little bit of positive hope. The true test of a person character is always how they stand and respond during test of adversity. So no matter what you are facing right now just hang in there cause joy comes in the morning.
On a more lighter note, I have never believed its possible to hang jacket on shoulder, though I have seen pictures of people doing it, but I just assume its all picture trick haha.

 And the reason for this skepticism is because I have tried all my jackets,blazers and what not, but none stayed on my shoulder, but when I got this vintage cut jacket its stayed on my shoulder, this made me realized its all in the cut, the shoulder of this jacket is deeper than the jackets I'm use to.
This experience tells me to never say never , all things can be made possible even …

Birthday Dress

Hello unique.
Wow! were do I start? I celebrated my birthday a few days back and I had the best time with friends and family. (The gifts I received was awesome, can't wait to start posting them.) my birthday was an opportunity for me to take stock of all the great things God has done for me from the beginning of the year. I'm honored and grateful  and also looking forward with excitement on things to come.
I hope my birthday experience pics will make up for my little hiatus, I have been having problem with my system but I promise to resolve it asap. warning! too many pictures  Lol
 I mention a few post back that i was making my birthday dress,this is it.


 I wanted something unique and chic.

 I also made sure the material I use is eye catching and has all my fav colour, I didn't even need to use any accessories apart from my bag and glass heel.


Now for the celebration, I went out with my family and friends to a cool and serene place to celebrate.
  I am always amazed at ho…

Be confident

Image
Hello unique.

Its a new month and i have found out that sometimes too many days are wasted comparing ourselves to others and wishing to be something we aren't. Everybody has their own strengths and weaknesses and its only when you accept everything you are_and aren't _that you will truly succeed. So be confident on who you are. Today's look is all about being confident,fun and playful.  When it comes to my personal style, it’s safe to say I love print, all kind, animal, floral, and 3Ds
I love this skirt so much because; many ideas on how to style it came to me while I was making it. I always make sure I buy or make versatile piece that brings out creativity in me. I decided to style the skirt with a floral print to be more daring and adventurous, like I mention in my previous post, I also add this red crop top inside to add some seriousness to the fun look. On another note its countdown to my birthday which is in November 6th. I'm so excited and grateful. Happy new month.

Casual mood

Image
Hello unique.
Hope you all had a great week, welcome to the weekend, today’s look is all about being casually glam.
And cotton (tee) and denim is the universal language of casual style, and the skinny denim are my best choice. I have always been a mood dresser, that's why i can't plan my outfits a day before, cause I might wake up feeling some type of way, and that can determine the outfits i wear that day. You can determine what mood I  in  according to the way i dress daily. There’s nothing about ones appearance that can’t be improve, it’s all in the accessories, so I decided to glam-up this casual look with my very own hand made lace back-pack, the colour is so vibrant. (Red happens to be my fav colour too). I also plan to make it in other lovely colours.
The only cons I can say about jeans is that you can’t wear it into an expensive restaurant and fit in. hahaha. I’m all for comfort when it comes to dressing up, that’s why you will see me dress like this on most days. This is a …
