    RETRO WORK-STYLE || A MODERN WOMAN’S GUIDE

    Retro modern style My personal style is best described as retro-modern, and this has turned me into a big time thrift shopper. When I’m not looking for restaurants or cool spots on Instagram, I’m definitely searching for thrift stores.  A retro-modern style simply is a fashion that blends vintage clothing with high-street clothing. Bold prints, high waist bottoms, and collared shirts are all part of what makes a modern look vintage inspired.  In this post I’d be sharing the retro work-style |a modern woman’s guide. Every woman has a few of theses outfits in their wardrobes: REVERSE BUTTON-DOWN SHIRT ON PLEATED SKIRT || Pleated skirt  Nothing screams retro aka vintage…

    STYLE || KIMONO OR NAH?

    I was to make this post sometime last week, but I had to move to a different state. Packing, unpacking and cleaning had me busy for the entire week. I’m glad I’m almost settled down and I’ve had the time to make this post. I was invited for an all night party, and I was trying out different outfits to go for the night. It was to be a barbeque kinda party and I wanted something simple yet comfortable. The initial idea was to go without the kimono, in fact I didn’t even think of the kimono till when I was about to have this shoot. In between the shoot,…

    SUMMER JUST BEGAN || DENIM TROUSER ON A COLD SHOULDER

    Literally, my summer just began. I’ve been busy moving out of my apartment of 5 years and getting ready to go back home, it’s been all hectic and sad and happy but I’m done. And it’s officially summer for me. I had so much fun taking this pictures, oh well, my baby sister is officially my photographer with no pay check (for now, lol). Did I mention I’m done with the University? Well, I’m done with the University. Spent 5 years studying civil engineering at the Rivers State University, Port-Harcourt in Nigeria and as of last month, that phase of my life came to an end. I’m excited and scared…

    STYLING A PANT SUIT AS A MINIMALIST

    The beauty of a pantsuit is it’s ultimate girlboss aesthetic that doesn’t have to be stuffy or boring. It’s all in how you style or wear it.  In this blog post, I’d be sharing how to style a pantsuit as a minimalist. I had a formal occasion and I had to suit up, what’s best to wear than a pantsuit? Suiting up in a pant suit doesn’t have to be all tight and boring, I had on a Dorothy Perkins black pants (trousers),  a black and white prints jacket (a gift from a friend) and a black Nine West 3-inch heel pumps, then I threw in a splash of color…

    THE PLAYSUIT FEVER

     Hey lovelies, it’s been a while I posted and I’m sorry for leaving y’all like that. I’ve been busy with school work and all, you know how the final year can be right??? Anyway, let’s talk about this outfit.  I wore this outfit to a friends birthday party, but I didn’t get good pictures so I decided to recreate the look. I’m a big lover of play suits, I could wear a jumpsuit sometimes but when it’s a playsuit? I wish someone could gift me 365 different colors of it so I’d wear it all year long.  BTW, the Christmas holidays is almost here ( not for me though, cause…

    THE DISCUSSION: DENIM BY UFASHIONS

      Hey lovelies,so I’ve been procrastinating this since this year, starting my own fashion line and having a fashion show, but I’ve finally decided to get on with it already. I’d be collaborating with my sister Ahunna to make this a reality. This is just an introduction to what the denim line will be about. You know how we use Ankara or any other material to make whatever dress we want? And how we’ve limited denim especially in Nigeria?  Well, denim by ufashions is changing it all, we’d use denim to make absolutely everything and anything! How cool is that?  Before the line is launched I’d let you my beautiful…

    #OOTD : TOPSHOP

        I wore this outfit to school today, and almost everyone had their eyes fixed on my shoes (oh well, I’m in Nigeria so anything that’s not the norm is either frowned on or appreciated and I was so excited when I got good vibes from people).       Today started out chilly, then later in the day everywhere got so hot I thought the sun might drop from the sky. I almost regretted wearing the top in this outfit. You might want to check if this shoe is still on TOPSHOP I’ve had mine since December 2015 but I wore it for the first time today. Let me know…

    THE FASHION ENGINEER

    Yes, you read right. I am a final year civil engineering student at the university of science and technology Rivers state. And I’ve had this love for fashion since forever. I basically enjoy wearing outfits people frown on, I get this vibe when more than 50% of the people I meet think I’m over dressed or underdressed (this rarely happens) 😉    No one actually believe me when I tell them I’m studying engineering, they tell me mass communication or journalism  would suit me better . Oh well!!I love it when I’m asked ” do you plan on wearing that? It’s for someone slimmer.” I’d definitely wear that out and…
