Back To The Studying Life

Hi guys,

Thank you so much for the support, response and feedback from the sophomore post.  Welcome to the next one. Lol☺.

Most of us have been in or know people who have been in situations whereby work experience doesn’t seem adequate to take that plunge into a preferable role, get a promotion or get into the fancy company you desire. There are also various other reasons to decide to study further . One could enjoy studying a specific subject and decide to continue it, you could have been offered a scholarship or you may want to change career paths and getting that postgraduate or professional qualification is a prerequisite.

Your reason might be as certain as them ones listed above or just bare confusion whereby you decide to study and while at it, consider available options for your future. 

So just trying to be clear, we haven’t lost the plot everything done here on metrogypsie is centred around ‘the lady on her grind’.

Well, our feature this week is a young woman who from a personal perspective decided that taking some time off work to study was the best option.

Onyeka Udechukwu
Occupation: Undergrad, MSc Business Innovation (Queen Mary University, London)
Interests: Shopping,Fashion, Jewellery, Dreaming.

Hair band – Marks & Spencer
Jacket – French Connection
Pink jumper – H&M
Black tights – Zara
Shoes – Dr Martens
Bag – Louis Vuitton 
Hat – Nameless shop on my street
Green scarf – Mango
Style Inspiration: Sincerely my only inspiration today was the snow.. We all had a seminar on Saturday which was cancelled only after we all got to school due to the weather so I was going to skip classes today as well due to the weather also but I knew Steph would have my head on a platter. It was so cold I layered my head pieces as well. Like, who does that? 



Jacket – Mango
Black long sleeved top – Miss Selfridges
Jeans – River Island
Shoes – Aldo
Bag – Hermès
Style Inspiration: Lovely day compared to the weekend. When I considered all the work I had to do today, seeing as my project supervisor whose office is really far from my lecture halls wasn’t at school on Monday, I had to keep it simple. I also had socks on and hoped these shoes wouldn’t make me slip but thankfully all was well and good. So the fact I had to run around for my project was be inspiration.



Jacket – Warehouse
Denim top – Miss Selfridges
Faux leather skirt – Warehouse
Tights – Same as Monday
Shoes – Asos
Bag – Chloé
Style Inspiration: I think this week I finally let go of the sad feelings of being in school again after being fully employed. You know, walking around from bus stop to bust stop to underground station, studying into the night and all. I decided to draw on this new senation and go to school looking like a school girl. So there..





Jumper – Marks & Spencer
Jeans – Apple bottoms
Belt – Tommy Hilfiger
Black long sleeved top – Same as Tuesday
Shoes – Ugg
Bag – Same as Wednesday
Style Inspiration: Oh well, from the side of my bed where I woke up this morning I could see Friday with its lovely face smiling at me so I decided to keep it cool. I was so excited I am sure you would see that from my pictures. Steph had no criticism with them lot because I was radiating joy all the way during my session.


Orange Jacket – Mango
Black dress – Karen Millen
Tights – Same as Monday & Wednesday
Shoes – Russell and Bromley
Bag – Christian Dior
Style Inspiration: 3 words, dissertation proposal presentation. I was going to look all serious and bland, with black shoes as well then I remembered my days working in Lagos and how Friday was always a day of joy where one had to be ready for drinks or something in the evening. This made me add colour in form of my shoes and jacket.





These are pictures from the seminar that never took place as she explained on the Monday look above. I really wonder what the inspiration was before she got to school I’m sure it had nothing to do with building and hugging a cold man though..oh well..

There it goes from shopperholic Onyeka. Thanks babe for letting us have you on here.

Do leave a comment below as usual on your favourite look and if time permits you, create a look of your own inspired by the outfits above.  A winner would be picked by Onyeka who would then wear the look in a follow-up post.

The winner from the previous post has been chosen  by Maddy on the comment section of that post (here). Also, I decided to put the outfit details and inspiration before the pictures. Does this seem better? Kindly drop a comment so I would know.

Thanks guys,
Catch you next time.

    I love the monday attire but Friday’s is still my fav. It gave her a classy and innocent look. To be sincere, I am struggling to focus on what she is wearing. She is sooooo beautiful. Steph, please always add phone no and email address for each lovely damsel. Keep it up.

    Monday’s Dr Martens boots + French Connection jacket; Really nice.
    Tuesday’s Aldo wedges + Hermes Bag. #TooDope #Salute
    Friday’s Orange jacket (kinda flows with the lecture hall seats too 🙂

    Exciting blog Steph! Looking forward to future posts already. Onyeka is a very pretty lady and that added essence to the whole thing. Her Thursday look was my fav, twas particularly fun and beautiful, Monday could simply be described as ‘take home to mama'(pink jumper + headband + neckpiece = perfect combo) and the choice of colours of the bag, jacket and shoes on Friday was nice & fashion forward. Thumbs up girl!

    Defiitely a more “fashion” conscious dresser than the previous girl. The only thing I had a problem with is how this post was kind of about brands (arguably unconsciously) than it was about decent style. In the end, she’s a pretty face and has her “names” all over, good for her. I can’t say I liked an entire outfit together (maybe Tuesday’s), but there were pieces that were nice, comme les sacs.. (y)

  41. February 7, 2013 / 5:43 pm

    That’s a weird observation as we labelled the previous post as well and I doubt you had the same brand issue with it. That been said, we would put a conscious effort at making the preceding posts a tad more relaxed.
    Merci beaucoup…x

    Would luv to see her on wednesday’s jacket(opened up tho) with a white vest worn inside and bold neckpiece with a bumshort(black) den dt tuesday’s shoe,lip color should be red …At least let her show us some skin *grin*
