Outfit || Girls will be Boys

Thursday, 30 May 2013
I think my dad is pretty much used to my "weird way of dressing". My over-sized print shirts, long and full pleated skirts, turbans etc. My "cinderella look" (as he calls it). Lol but I don't think he was prepared for this because when he saw me this morning his reply was "this doesn't look so smart". I couldn't help but laugh out loud.
My dad's response to my outfits are either, 'you look smart' in which case he really loves it, or cinderella girl . haha

I look weird here but whatevs -_-

I have this extreme love for androgyny fashion. From as far back as I can remember, I've been into the whole "tom boy" swag thing.
I've never been a girly girl. Memories of my childhood includes playing footie, table tennis, bicycle racing, running around with the boys and basically being a terror.  Lol.* Good old days*. I've calmed down a bit now tho.
I like borrowing from the male closet. (I'm most especially obsessed with fedora hats and bowties!) so of course I just had to get with the boyfriend jeans trend plus the jeans are super comfortable!!
I wore that to a casting this morning , I was a bit skeptical if it wasn't a bit off for a casting but hey! I guess not cos I got picked :D
I got a few odd stares too . lol

P.S - After staring blankly at my laptop screen for close to 20 mins 10mins, i still couldnt come up with a decent  post title

Outfit || We go together like Denim and a Tee

Tuesday, 28 May 2013
This is just a simple outfit i wore to see a client for a shoot yesterday.
I was going to dress up in one of "eccentric styles' but i figured i should at least look normal since its "job related".lol
Anyways i just threw on a tee, denim pants, my sneaks again and headed out.

I had to do a little test shoot from which they will decide if they"ll use me or not, i hope they see my pictures and fall in love at first sight o:). Pray for a sisteh.

P.S - I've decided to make my blog more "Me", so i intend to write more about things and not just my "OOTD's".
I will also try to have fun with my post titles, keyword "try" because i absolutely suck at thinking up

Outfit || The Floral Vest

Friday, 24 May 2013
Yesterday was my last day of GMP (General Medicine Practice) Postings. I'm so glad that's over although i'll really miss my partners especially the ride through and fro everyday listening and singing along to awesome soft rock music  ^_^

This was a last minute outfit after i reluctantly dragged myself out of bed. I dug out this floral vest from my vintage closet and to think that i actually used to wear it around the house and to sleep //_\\
Looked online and found a whole lotta inspiration on how to rock this vest so be rest assured that you'll be seeing it again pretty soon

The sun in Lagos is horrible!!!!! omygashh!! see how my forehead is reflecting in the sun :(

So, i learnt a really big lesson yesterday and its that "things are only as important as the value you place on them".
I finally realized that I've been giving the wrong things high importance in my life and just putting myself through unnecessary stress but that's way past. I've decluttered my mind and i feel so freeeeeeeeee :D

I'm happy the weekend is finally here. How did your week go?

Thank you Iyare for being my photographer and Biola >_>

Outfit || Denim and Kicks

Thursday, 23 May 2013
Whoop! I'm so happy to be back on here! i've sincerely missed blogging! My exams have been moved to july and i think i'm happy about that. I have a little more time to get more work done.

Yesterday my friend(who is also a model) and i had fittings , after that we decided to go see tyler perry's temptation. I thoroughly enjoyed that movie and I had an awesome day. Thank you Nike :*

So, i decided to pull out my new kicks yesterday. lol I dunno why but i really felt all badass in this outfit!
Probably because i hardly wear sneakers out and i like to deceive myself sometimes and form "tomboy" lol  (i actually like tomboys)

Dress good, Feel good ^_^

P.S - I think every girl should go see tyler perry's temptation. for real 

Oh yeah, so i met one of my "blog readers" in school last week friday. I just want to say thank you for loving my blog again! (why so emotional yeah?lol)

OOTD || Model Diary

Saturday, 11 May 2013
I think its safe to say i've had the busiest week so far. Lots of running around, Shows from "hell", Project stuffs, Short nights and long days. Is it strange that i actually kind of prefer it to being idle at home? i just need a car and i wouldn't mind all the stress. lol
So, yesterday i had one other fashion show from "hell". Spent the whole day changing clothes and walking the runway. sheesh!!!. I was even more stressed then when i wrote my last professional exam. Yes, its that deep!!
Somehow, i think i knew it was gonna be that way so i dressed to minimize stress. Shorts, a tank tee, a blazer for the cold and of course my fedora hat to cover my scattered hair.

This is me at arrival. All natural, no makeup. i look so dead . lol
I don't know why i'm smiling in this weird way -__-
Fooling around. Matilda, Bukola, Opeyemi
Chilling to get hair done. That's Angel.
Makeup Section
this is khalid's excuse for a picture. smh
I can't exactly put up any actual picture on the runway yet

My head hurts as i type this, i think i need a goooddd long sleep but i just wanted to get this post out of the way.
How was your week?

Thank God its Weekend!!!

Outfit || Little Black Dress

Monday night I received a call from a casting director inviting me to a tv commercial casting. She also said to come looking "sexy". In my usual nature, I brushed it off thinking to myself, "I'll deal with all that tomorrow".
Fast forward next morning, my room in disarray with my clothes scattered all over the place. It hit me that I really didn't know what she meant by dress "sexy". I mean well, I know how to dress good and all usually with most parts of my body covered.
After much thought, I finally settled for this little black dress that has been accumulating dust in my closet. lt shows off my legs which i think is one of my best assets :D
And of course, i couldn't leave my house in that short gown. My black pleated skirt came to the rescue. I wore it over my gown and used a belt to finish up the look. Thats Tracy, one of the "skinny Bitches" i

I took these pictures with my iPad and had to edit all of them because i really didn't like the quality of the picture. I'm so happy i finally replaced my camera's memory card so goodbye to low quality pictures ^_^. 

Inspiration : Dungarees

Sunday, 5 May 2013
Fashion is very dynamic, trends are constantly resurfacing. I am currently loving dungarees, overall and pinafores. This 90's trend is making a huge come back and has been spotted on one too many celebrities and even on the runways .

I recently acquired a short dress dungarees from my aunt. I'm so inspired and can't wait to finally try it on!

What do you think of this trend? Will you rock it?

Outfit || Retro Chic

Hey Guys! 
How's it going? 

I really hate how inconsistent I've been of late and although I don't want to come on here with all these excuses, but hey what can I do?  Lol.
I've been having internet issues and now my camera's memory card is bad.
I'm currently trying to get a hang of blogging with Le IPad. It's confusing and I can't make the post I had in mind so I'm just publishing one of my saved drafts.

This is an outfit I wore some weeks ago on one of our community immersion days in school. I have a love affair with vintage skirts and this skirt is one of my favorites from my vintage closet. I paired it with my chiffon green shirt and of course I brought on the arm party (wrist beads) as usual.

What do you think of this look? 
Also, let's connect!
