Style || Bohemian Vibes In Dahlia.

Thursday, 4 August 2016
FREE - SPIRITED.

Now that's not exactly a word that I would confidently or totally use to describe myself. Maybe my alter ego, Yes. If you've ever read my bio here, you would know that it's something I wouldn't mind being.

For now though, being in this outfit (most especially the top) the other weekend gave me this solange'y vibes that got me feeling all free spirited and boho chic.

I received this victorian style lace crop top from the zinkata store - made by a brand called Dahlia. I got it on the day I left for Atlanta and because of all the rush, I didn't have the chance to ooh and aah over it properly or go into full fashion trial mode till I got back to Lagos.
When I eventually did, I fell absolutely in LOVE with it! I tried it with a couple of bottoms and it all fit perfectly!
Yes, of course that means that you would be seeing more of this top soon.

This outfit was as unplanned as the idea to share the different looks I put together to wear to the yard sale on instagram (all the looks are still on my instagram - @cassiedaves , in case you want to check them out) for my instafam to help me choose a look.

I had initially planned to go all "white out" and pair the top with a white skirt (that look was everyone's choice by the way) but I ended up merging two of the looks together to create a totally new one - this one, which I finally wore to the yard sale.
I love dis-assembling and pairing up outfits to form new ones! That's one of the fun part sof this fashion thing.

You might remember this pants from its debut on the blog here. It was also a key part of my capsule wardrobe last year and I'm introducing it into it again this year. I've also styled the pants In this post here.
In case you're wondering what a capsule wardrobe is - its a way to really maximize your wardrobe by selecting a particular number of clothing items and mixing and matching them to create different looks that will last you for a particular length of time. I talked more about it in this post.

Now, to the ever important question. 
What do you think of this look? And how would you style this top differently?
Shareee! And let's connect!

P.S -
Zinkata is having their annual shopping party this sunday at the store which is located at 13b Awori road, dolphin estate by 12pm!

  3. This look! I still can't get over its awesomeness! I keep telling myself "Cassie definitely had a tug of war round with a contending buyer to get those pants". They are just too pretty. The blouse too, Major jackpot!

    1. Haha funny enough I was sooo skeptical about getting it because I didn't know if it was going to be my length or be nice. There was a white one too and I didn't get it just to be on the safe side. Wrongest decision I've ever made in my life. I still regret it till this day 😢

  5. I think this look is fabulous. I like that the white top isn't fully sleeved in length. I would try to see if I could create another look by tucking it in. That would mean I have to pull up my bottom pair a little bit but if I were taller, it would accentuate my body figure. Maybe with a black skirt, a high waist too.

    I didn't know you ever had capsule wardrobe incorporated into your style. Who would have known? I guess you are gifted in your mix and match endeavours.

    This is a nice look overall.

    1. Honestly? Same here too! I didn't even think a shoe would work with the pants. It has always been ankle strap csandals or flat sandals. Was surprised when I tried this and it worked out.
      Made me realize that I should stop condemning things in my mind and try them first to see.

  7. Love the first picture.. i have a thing against coloured flat shoes (maybe it's my "biased" love for black) but you rocked those flats really well. I just might have a change of heart
