Ankara styles Updated

Hi, welcome again to my Nigeria fashion. So,  some of my ankara outfits are right here with me and I'm so happy to update. If only I learnt how to sew, things
would have been different. Just buy the fabric, get home, cut and sew in a matter of days. But come on, can one person do everything in life? No one can do all. We need each other to survive so,  dear tailors, mind yourself. I wanted this skirt exactly on my knees o, from these pic looks like it's below the knees. Slow network just acting up now. When it gets better, I'll upload more of this outfit pics: The ones with my neck bent to the south o, the ones with my keg crossed like I don't care,  the ones with me learning to smile at the camera. But sha,  must one smile at the camera? I don't see anything wrong with just looking straight and normal for shoots o. My people like to beg me to smile at the camera all the time. Na by force?I don't know how to do it and not even interested in learning sef. How c…

Dressing Up, Time For Business

Fashion blogging has a way of making one dig deep into closets and boxes and bags and even boutiques. Who would have thunk that I'll ever wear this floral print skirt by Petite? A skirt I so condemned, added to items I wanted to give away and then retrieved it again. This came along with my affordable Walmart dresses last year, dresses that I felt made me fat.
 Today is the first time I wear this skirt and it feels comfortable. I went about feeling confident and not feeling bloated in any way, maybe because I lost weight and according to my girl, "there's still a lot to lose' however for me, the owner of this body, I think I've lost enough and only needs to drop a few calories and then, just work on toning up my muscles and firming these arms and others. 
It's a miracle that I can wear this long sleeve shirt again, I found it while digging last night courtesy of disappointing Nigerian tailors. There was a time I couldn't wear this black long sleeved shirt b…

We Dress For The Movies

The last two girls are done with their exams and want mommy to take them to the movies for studying hard. We search Online and find interesting movies for kids and adults. They can't go to watch adult movies and I don't want to go bore myself with kids movies cos that's what always happens. I can't as a person remember when last I went to the cinema and came back feeling like "that movie was great" No, it doesn't happen that way, I sit down there with them looking at the big screen while they continue to exclaim and hold their breath and giggle. This time we agree that I'll go watch my movie while they watch theirs alone.
We get to the galleria, I remember how dark it can get before the movie starts, I remember there are more than one doors in there, I thought about all the bad things we see in home video, and I just sacrifice, and then, we go watch theirs together. Did I enjoy it? maybe a little. Did they have fun?They won't stop talking about &q…

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 …

Dressed In My Afrik Western Outfit

These text messages have been coming since 2014, The Central Bank  Of Nigeria has directed that bank account details be verified before June 30, 2015. Why I haven't done this before today, I don't know. Procrastination kept me saying "there is still time" This morning, I got a reminder and had to find my way to the nearest branch as directed.

Dressing to go verify account details shouldn't be that sophiscated na. I automatically switched into my modern afrik mode and jumped into this blue denim and the lovely African print top. This top actually embarrassed me but thankfully it happened in the car. Looking at me now, you won't know the zipper is busted but, that's exactly what happened. When you do not wear an oufit for long, it gets tired of waiting in the closet and quietly waits for the day you'll wear before protesting. I got home safely, leaned my back towards the car and asked that some shots be taken. This top has a tailored skirt that I don…

My Foreign Top With African Ankara Skirt

Some days have passed without updates. don't worry, no problem, For now, I can't promise us  daily posting on this my Naija fashion style but I'll be consistent. This black top is a mango top I bought during their summer sales, 70% off original cost, so, it was actually very cheap and I bought them in different colours to wear until next summer sales, lol. Do not forget I'm a teacher and  can comfortably wear this to work but with a shorter belt. Well, my ankara skirt and this top flow very well together and don't say I didn't warn you o. Remember my first post on this blog? where I confessed I don't have a wardrobe to die for but will do fashion blogging to help me sit up and do better. Ok, I also warned about re-rocking o, that's until those new outfits arrive sha.

You have done well Eya, It's not easy to look this great at 40 jor, however, forty doesn't mean old, you are still young, sit up.

Sister Eya, if you know that sincerely you want…
