ooo yesss, It's about time I wore this African print Vest. Sometimes, you have something in your closet, but you need some inspiration on how to rock it or pull it off. Luckily, looking for something comfortable to wear to the Pop Up Plus event that took place yesterday inspired this look. I loved how the coral bead necklace gave the look a more African feel. I also wore my special Onecklace jewelry. 

More of the look below.

I am so loving this dress, I just love the bright colors and pattern, you just can't miss me when I walk passed you. I wore it to church yesterday, it was an easy wear for me. I was so tired, and almost couldn't make it to church because the kids decided to do night vigil and slept at 2 am. It wasn't cute when I woke up at 7 and had to get them ready and myself to head to church. Luckily, I had this beautiful piece in my closet, and I was ready in a few minutes and headed out. I wasn't in the mood to wear heels, so the dress helped me cover my slippers *happy face*. Our Naija plus size stores are doing it big, thanks to @CANTIKCURVES on instagram for such a lovely piece, more pictures below.

There is definitely something in the air. A few friends of mine and myself have been under the weather for a few days. I tried so hard to be camera friendly in these pictures, hope I tried :).  
I wore this outfit to TOSFA's  1 year anniversary shopping party on Sunday. There were so many amazing pieces on display, if you weren't there, then you really missed out on some nice pieces on discounts.

As much as I would like to say that I bought this skirt from a store, so that you can get your hands on them, unfortunately, they were tailor made. Well, lets just call it an inspiration for your next tailor visit. 


This necklace is so special and dear to my heart. Engraved on it is my name and my two lovely baby girls "Alana and Hazel". It's a way of showing how precious they are to me and I get to have something special that reminds me of them at all times when I not around. If want something like this for a great price, you can get it on the website below, they ship worldwide.






Necklace: Onecklace
Shoes: Reed Krakoff
Skirt: Tailor made

Hey guys!! it's a new month filled with so much blessings, all I can say is, remain expectant and keep your faith strong while you keep putting your hands to good use. It has been a long time coming to deliver this post. I was suppose to attend NFB Yard sale, to sell a few of my clothes that I don't wear anymore, I'm sure a lot of plus size ladies would have loved to get a few lovely pieces under 3k. Unfortunately, I could  not be part of it due to another event I had promised to attend. I can't wait for next year, I would definitely not miss it for anything. So before you checkout the pictures below, here are a few things you need to know about NFB yard sale.

.Ginikachi Eloka, the creative lead behind the pre-loved shopping platform NFB Yard Sale has always wanted to find new ways to help foster community and new connections between fashion bloggers, insiders and the average fashion lover. She has also never seen the point of wasting a good dress. The NFB Yard sale, held on Sunday 24th July at Ethnic Heritage Center Ikoyi was her answer to both. 

It also provided an interesting opportunity, to give back to the community  by holding an auction to fundraise for Iroto School of Catering, a school with the mission to continuously equip young women from impoverished backgrounds with skills and a better chance of sustaining themselves and their families.


The main thrust of the event was the Yard sale, thrown open to all interested. After careful vetting, twenty two sellers found new homes for gently used items from their personal and professional wardrobes. Clothing for men and women were on the stands as were accessories, jewellery and shoes. 


With food by several vendors, music and drinks, the shoppers mingled, getting to meet some of their favorite fashion people including lifestyle bloggers Cassie Daves, Mide Coker, Ifeanyi Okafor Jnr and Desola Mako  as well as fashion heavy weights like Mrs. Adesuwa Onyenokwe. They also got to interact with each other and forge new connections, while supporting a noble cause. 


There was a secondary purpose for the Yard sale and several items donated by Bidemi Zakariyau of LSF PR, Sika Osei of Mnet Africa, Temi Doll Face, Denola Grey, and Ijeoma Ndukwe to mention a few were put up for auction to the guests of the Yard sale in order to raise funds for Iroto catering school. 

















After a successful auction chaired by Mrs Onyenokwe, Elma Godwin, and Cassie Daves, the yard sale team was able to meet a good part of its donation target.

The yard sale was organized by Ginikachi Eloka and Oprah Morgridge, both of whom are engineering majors with a love for fashion. 

The Yard Sale was sponsored by: SPICE TV, TW Magazine, Pulse Nigeria, The Other Style, and Ethnic Heritage Center.

XOXO
