How I Style When It Rains

Hi guys,

…I find it really annoying when it rains, during the day especially. I mean even if I was based in a city were driving was almost imperative, the way the roads look is always so drab, dark and murky. It also distorts outdoor events. I’d rather it rained at night..for agriculture sake you know, the farms and crops and all that.

How Bloggers Party Online – My Birthday !

How Bloggers Party Online – My Birthday !

IMG_1441

 

 

Hi guys,

 

so I just turned 21 today! *Whoosssssssssh* .. The days preceding my birthdays are usually a tad reflective for me and more often than not I would be like ‘oh I’m not marking it this year’ but then a couple days before I start to change my mind ‘okay maybe a meal with colleagues’.. ‘maybe brunch with a friend’.. or get my friends together for dinner’. Oh well..

All my life I have marked my birthday in some way or another. This year, its an e-party with some of my favourite female Nigerian fashion bloggers. I haven’t met some of these ladies in person but with most of them, we just communicate really good and get along on social media. I hope I meet all of them someday.

I am going to share all their photos, Occupations, Interests and website addresses here.

Guess what, of course where bloggers are gathered there has to be a style theme/dress code. Its an All-White affair with Non-White footwear so feel free to side-eye anyone who broke the dress-code rules. LoL!

Lastly, I would also include one special guest and 4 Birthday mates of mine who aren’t bloggers.

Do have a blast reading through, I hope you enjoy partying with us as much as I enjoyed putting it together.

 Interests:- And here comes the long story.. —> Major shopaholic, Globetrotting, I love to witness beauty, i’m naturally drawn to things that give me the ability to create; like in photography, video production and sewing, I enjoy the freedom of being able create and portray things as ‘appealing’ from my perspective. My favourite part of creating is that I get to sit back to observe the beauty of what I’ve created. I find it thrilling that my imaginations do not have to be limited to the things that are physically accessible to me, but that I can also create and get swept in my creation. 

Meditating, I enjoy starting my day off by quieting my mind and tapping into a clear emotional space, Eating, Taking walks alone in the dark, Cooking, Baking & Stealing recipes.

How to Wear the Pleated Flared Skirt; Working It series


Hi guys, 

Welcome back to my blog. The previous post was up for two weeks as I put so much energy and time getting it together. Work has been pretty hectic which is very annoying considering the weather has been really beautiful lately.

There is so much going on right now with me, work, friends visiting from overseas, my professional exams et al so apologies if at some point the blog is updated every fortnight. 

You know how you’d have a certain frock that’s not one of your favourites but you always remember it when you got nothing to wear. Yes, that’s what the post is about. I realised the second time I wore this skirt that I never really wanted to wear it until I’d searched and searched my wardrobe to no avail…then I decided to take pictures whenever I did so.

Bellow are the various ways I have worn this skirt right from Winter 2012 till sometime last week.

Skirt: Primark



Look #1



Jacket: Ghost
Top: H&M
Scarf: Burberry
Shoes: Newlook
Bag: River Island
Neckpiece: Aldo


Look #2



Top: Newlook
Belt: Primark

Look #3



Top: Forever21
Shoes: Evie
Belt: Dorothy Perkins

Look #4

Sweater: Spirit Union
Top: Rock n Roll
Bag: Calvin Klein

Look #5

Shirt: Primark
Shoes: Newlook

then I unbuttoned the shirt…


Tank Top: Primark.

Oooooopps at the last picture. Lol.


So there it is.. Do you have this sort of relationship with any of your clothing items? Feel free to send an email to stephanie@metrogypsie.org if you want to.

Cheers people, have a lovely week..
