Two Piece

Hello Unique

Creating and buying two piece ensembles is one of my recent fashion must have, simply because it’s so economical and versatile; it can be matched together or styled individually for a whole new look.
Though I’m partial to styling it separately, but decided to try on this matching set I made recently together. I know most times two piece matchy sets like this are worn to show off the stomach area, but I was going to an event where styling it that way won’t be suitable. You see! The environment helped formed my style and the choices I make when I design or buy clothes.


You see this midi-skirt is no longer like this; I transformed it into a pencil skirt because I wanted a pencil skirt with this colour tone, (The advantage of being a creative designer)that’s  the fun part of what I do, I'm able to create and recreate on a whim. I even sometimes deliberately cut out old dress in two just to have a two piece that can be styled separately. Yep! I do this when I have old dress that I’m not ready to give up. Don’t be too quick to give out outdated pieces. You never know!  And I love the pencil skirt version with this top too, I will post that version on here pretty soon, so just stay tune.


One thing about ball shape skirt like this is that without the right kind of shoe one can end up looking short, so go for pumps that's not too high or low. I wore this pair because they are colourful and serve as a good contrast to this monochrome look.
Guess you don't know this clutch is actually a make-up case turned clutch, the heart shape and colour is what made me decide to carry it as a clutch due to the fact that I was going for a fun, fashionable look that demand the right attention. The motif is ‘dress to be addressed.




PS; Countdown of my Birthday #Nov6 starts tomorrow the 1st of November, I'm pretty excited even though I have still not got around to design my Birthday dress, I'm still indecisive on what to wear but I think I might settle for something short and sparkling and of course red in colour.

S.N.O.B

Hello unique.


I have heard people call me snob on some occasion, and I was starting to believe it, not until I decided to check the actual meaning of snob which states that a snob is “someone who tends to criticize, reject, or ignore people who come from a lower class or have less education.
After seeing this meaning I felt so much better because I realize I have never been a snob, mainly because I’m too self absorb to ignore people or care about their social status. I can understand why some people will think I’m a snob, one because most times I don’t even remember the names of people I have met until at least thrice. ( thank God for my friend Ope that helps me keep record of people I talk to for the first time). Most times I’m in my dream world.
Two, because I’m more of a listener than a talker; this is  good because it helps me know how people around me think and bad because some people will think I don’t  say much when they are around because I’m  feeling too important. Wrong!
Lastly because I like to keep myself company, I hold my own counsel, I don’t tell people around me when I’m worried about something, I hardly seek for advice and these sometimes makes people think I reject or ignore them. Observing people provide me with all the advice I need. Yep!
oh! the reason I look mean sometimes is actually because my mind is cooking up something, this tends to put some people off from approaching or talking to me. Please if you see me looking like mean don’t be put off, I might look mean sometimes but I’m truly nice when you talk to me. Hahaha.
What I’m trying to say here is that, don’t be too quick to criticize people, try to understand people. The reason I don’t criticize people is because I try to see the reason behind their actions. I know that all the people in this world haven’t had the same advantages, which brings about different kind of reaction which in turn make us all unique in our own special way. Thank God I have passed that stage of trying to be like another person, I’m special in my own way and I don’t want to lose myself trying to please everyone.
If one does not understand a person, one tends to regard the person in error.
PS; I love all kinds of ankara skirt and I have making and getting quite a lot. Its an obsession.
Enjoy your weekend guys.

Basically basic

Hello Unique.


I was having a hard time deciding what to wear the day I wore these outfits; those days when none of your clothes seem to fit properly and you feel disgusted with yourself for feeling bloated and out of shape. Yep these was how I felt that day, I couldn't just decide  to wear a pair of jean and tee, because it was a Sunday morning, which means serious dressing up(I make extra effort on Sundays when it comes to styling)mostly corporate outfits, because I won’t go to my king house dressing like a commoner. Oops!
Now this situation made me decide to go basic with these black and white ensemble, black because it’s slimming and this loose fit ones makes you feel comfortably chic, and the white shirt just gives that freshness that I needed to feel; my mood was way under and although white is not slimming the loose fit ones just makes one feel better and refresh.
These pumps were my way of adding character to this look, since I’m known for adding colour to my entire outfit. This look is so clean and fresh that my mood was lightened and I didn't feel so bloated anymore, just goes to show that you can control whatever situation or mood you woke up with, by simply taking advantage of what you have around you including your clothes.
Every day we are faced with the probability of unpleasantness, getting angry, stressed or even depressed, but what you do when you indulge these negative emotions is what matters. You can choose not to let these things stay long.
I just love the simplicity of this look_ Simplicity being the ultimate form of sophistication.
Stay great everyone.
