Carina: The Lady Biba ‘Carina’ is one of my favourite dresses in my wardrobe. I bought it in an instagram sale couple of months back, but struggled a little (more like a LOT) with the fit mainly because my lower half and upper half vary drastically! Naturally, I had to have alterations done (thanks to Alterations on Awolowo Road) now my dress is a perfect fit… a second skin if you like.
Initially, I was very skeptical about the Carina. The picture I’d seen on the website featured a poorly finished hemline and although I LOVED the dress, I wasn’t about to throw my money into the pocket of any designer that didn’t pay attention to a clean finish. But then as I went through the Lady Biba instagram account, I noticed that unlike the pictures on the website, the dress actually looked well made. As you all know, I’m a fan of Nigerian Belle and even she vouched for Lady Biba, so I took the plunge and bought the dress. Needless to say, I think this dress is amazing and Lady Biba will definitely be hearing from me again soon.
Vintage: Sumbo’s dress on the other hand is a vintage extraordinaire! This blue number was spotted in her Aunt’s closet and needless to say, it’s Sumbo’s now. A truly timeless piece the colour pops just as much as it did back in the day, but the material has a fragile stretch to it, demanding care when washing.
Say hello to our Sunday OOTD! Plum and Vintage Sapphire…….
Ps: Forgive the quality of the pictures. They were taken with my phone.
Pps: Do you see my sexy eyes in picture number 2? LOL The sun was glaring, I couldn’t help myself.
Remember my 5 Blogs 5 Days series…? Good thing you do, because unlike you, I forgot!
I’m not very good at finishing things that I start. I tend to start off on a high and then gradually, the momentum dies until things come to a gradual halt! But in my pursuit of self-improvement, I decided I’d commit more to my blog, starting with the series of 5 Blogs 5 Days.
Today’s post is about one of my favourite blogs- Nigerian Belle. Below are a number of reasons I love Nigerian Belle:
1. Nigerian Belle is written by one of my favourite Nigerian Fashion Designers-Damola of House 38- and the blog in itself, is a promotion of Nigerian Fashion brands. I’ve been trying to ‘Buy Nigerian’ more and this blog updates me on affordable designer brands and items to purchase.
2.Nigerian Belle takes you through the daily adventures of the writer from the mysteries of her top drawer, to cross border trips to the likes of Ghana and Dubai.
3. The blog has a clean look with no distracting backgrounds or jarring colours. Simplicity is always key for me.
Hope you like as much as I do.
Ps: I want to write about 2 more Blogs. Can it be 6 days 6 blogs instead of 5? Lol
