A Little Patterned Dress With Fab Sandals

I love little dresses, in black, brown, patterned and any other form or color that flatters mty skin shade. The little
dress is a very versatile staple in a any woman's wardrobe. It could be a little black dress or one made with any color like my teal blue dress. It can also be a patterned little dress like this.
A little dress can be worn for fun outings with friends, on a date,  for dinner, office look and can be dressed up or down as the case may be.

How To Wear Skinny Jeans, My Look Today

I love skinny jeans, they just have a way of making one look slimmer especially the darker shades.The name skinny jeans does not mean that they are meant for only skinny people, no. These are called skinny jeans because they are, and look skinny, tiny compared to flared and other types of jeans. With appropriate shoes, tops and other accessories, even Plus size women can comfortably wear skinny jeans. The word skinny refers to the cut of the leg which is tiny and skinny..

How to wear Skinny Jeans And Look Fabulous:
Choose the right size of skinny jeans, the size that won't look too tight and bumpy on the knees.Pick a size that fits properly, that's just reasonably tight and allows you bend and squat comfortably.If you are a plus size, I'll recommend the high rise jeans so you don't show off everything at the backside each time you bend to sit.If you want to draw attention to your long legs, then go with brighter colors on heels but do not forget that darker shades make y…

In My Little Coffee Dress With Brown Sandal For Fun Outing

Outing was fun even with the two girls arguing the whole time in the car. They do that a lot and I always remind them that their elder sisters never argued or fought because the younger is always very obedient to her big sis even clearing her plates after eating but these two? The younger is the one that would always like to send her elder sis on errands but won't shift when her attention is needed. I told her today to try and ignore this my last girl. God willing she leaves for boarding in September and let's see how she won't miss her big sis.  Wharra hell girls? if one rolls down the car window, the other would wind it back up. If one touches mommy's gadgets, that is the exact time that the other wants it. Going out was fun but returning back home was less fun with me being the car chief judge.

I forgot to put all the pics as one before uploading. Just bear with the long scrolling. Have fun!

Dressed For Fun With My Combination Of African Fabric With Western Fashion

Nothing serious here, the mood is just fun. I am not going too far away and not feeling denim or skirt so, I tie this Senegalese wrapper with a black short sleeve shirt. The wrapper has a tailored blouse that I would have loved to wear if I was going to church or even an important event. I am not in a dressy mood so I just wear whatever I feel. The Senegalese is sewn like a long skirt but  has a rope to tie round the waist. Would a pink top have been better? I don't think so. A pink top would have made no big difference, it would have shown no creativity on my side. With a pink or blue top, I'll still look like "too easily put together"  Ok, this black sandal again? Yes o. It's so comfortable for me carrying a baby around. The heels are just right at this time and it is the only black sandal here with these block heels. I can't take the risk of falling face down with my baby because of guy and fashion blogging. Let's re-rock for now eh? when he is a bit …

How To Wear Red And Orange Together

Here is my My summer outfit. Where? can't find summer in Nigeria so, let's say, my Rainy season wear. You have seen me in this dress before, on the other blog but, not with red shoe or purse, it was combined with brown then and I'm warning you ahead of time that I'll repeat a lot. Rocking and re- rocking is my thing. I alerted you guys earlier that I don't have a wardrobe to die for o. What I have is what I share and like my daughter keeps saying " Mummy why do you want to be a fashion blogger when you don't have a wardrobe to die for? How many pairs of shoe and fashionable bags do you have in this house?" Well,like I told her, I'm telling us too now o. One good thing about being a fashion blogger is that it will help me do away with my fashion carelessnes, it will definitely make me sit up in the fashion department. I'll begin to want to look good and, who says that, is not great for my marriage? Looking at my small wardrobe, I suddenly reali…

Welcome To Nigerian Fashion Blogs

No, not just another Fashion blog, this one is different. See those? Are all by the young and the restless.Checked online and I can't find one Nigerian fashion blog my age. This is for me, for us the not too young. For forty and above,  for the mid-life, for the mom trying to lose weight, for you.

Hi, this is me Eya Ayambem,  a mom blogger born and raised in Nigeria. In my forties trying to still look good and inviting as I gracefully grow older. Not a Fashion designer or tailor, not a fashion police or superstar like Rita Dominique or Genevieve Nnaji, neither am I an Omotola Jolade or Toke Makinwa in the Nigerian fashion world. .
A lover of Nigerian fashion and believer in the saying "Simplicity is elegance" To me, less is more. I love to look good and young. I love to still feel comfortable when I dress up or down.
I belive that in her forties, any African woman can still look young and sexy without appearing offensive. We do not need to spend too much to look presentable…
