Hey guys, It's another new day, with new possibilities. I can't believe my month is over after today. It's been a cool one though "I'm just a birthday whore" who isn't though? well the reason why this post is called "Throwback shawl" is because I wore this outfit late last month to an event after church.
You know those kinda Sundays were your tired but you know you have to go to church and at the end of the day you just wanna feel free? yeh it was those Sundays, that's why I wore the shawl and pencil skirt, but I could not sacrifices the heels.
I would just like to ask, what do you think about shawls? Would you wear one?

Hey guys! hope you had an amazing weekend? I can't believe the month is almost over, and my birthday is this Friday!! Yay me. I'm gonna be a year older, so grateful to God.
It's another Aso Ebi Inspirational episode. This material was for Sisi Yemmie's Cinderella wedding that took place on Friday, they are a blessed couple. The Aso ebi was lemon and gold or blue and gold. I didn't want to go for the normal top and skirt design or a long dress. I wanted something simple and breezy. The jacket was for a little dramatic effect to give the dress a little elegant look.
I wanted to tie a gele which I learnt how to tie, but I felt it will dress down the look if not done properly or I might look like a madam trying to hard. So I just let my hair out.
I would love to read what you think of this look?
Shoes: Christian Loutboutin

Hey guy, Happy weekend!!! Finally as I promised, here are the pictures of Fashpa Day Out event I attended last weekend, it was filled with good food, drinks and music. It was like a shoppers heaven can't Lie. I hope you enjoy the pictures and share your thoughts.
The CEO of Fashpa (on my right) is such a sweet, lovely and shy lady, you might not believe she is the owner because of how humble she presents herself. She's a cool chic in my book.
There is no way I'll see clothes or accessories and not want to buy something, except nothing interests me. I placed an order on the dress I'm holding, can't wait to get it and rock it.
Took a picture with my fellow blogger mate Mide Coker
Also another picture with my childhood friend Alaezi who is part of the Fashpa team
I have to confess something... these cupcakes where the bomb.com, I had a couple "hehe". They were that good. I need to find the bakery behind it.
There were also amazing finger foods, I could not take pictures of them all, I got caught up eating them.
Florence H store also displayed some of their luxury items.
The DJ was just giving some mad tunes.
Some more guests who were chilling outside.

Hey guys, hope your week is going great. I love the fact that rain is falling, I take it as a symbol of showers of blessings coming my way. I normally don't like rain during the day, but this one feels special.
I have been feeling quite casual lately, I guess these days I'm quite in a chill mode. I recently wore this outfit to an event I was invited to called "Fashpa Day Out" the post will be up this weekend. I almost went with flats because I have gotten invites to some events that didn't go to well and almost felt like a waste of an outfit. But thank God my spirit spoke so well to me, and I carried a pair of heels in the car just in case, because It really came in handy.
