Accessories to the Rescue

Hello Loviesssss, 

Happy children's day to all the wonderful children out there. I got this very funny broadcast on my blackberry this morning and i couldn't stop laughing; " If you are over 30 years and living with your parents and still eating their food, happy children's day to you"- hahahaaha.
I am someone's child o and i don't know why i have to be in the office today; not fair at all *Sad face*

So this weekend wasn't even funny at all, i spent saturday looking for sheri mangoes to buy. Anyone who knows me would tell you about my love for that particular type of mango.  I sent Adamu the security man to Oniru market and further down sef and he couldn't get. I cannot be begin to explain the sadness i felt. What would it cost them to just sell sheri mangoes ehn? I have gone to the extent of making an appointment for this evening with two mango sellers so wish me luck... Hahahahaha. Yes i know i am crazy... LOL. Abi Is it a crime for someone to love sheri mangoes as much as i do?







Anyways i decided to tidy my closet on saturday evening and i found this fabric; an aso-ebi (A tradition in Africa where the family celebrating chooses a fabric to be worn by everyone at the function). I was supposed to wear it for a friend's father's funeral over 1 year ago but i travelled then so the fabric had been lying in my closet. I was hoping to do some sura the tailor moves but as i sat on my bed watching Come Dine With Me, i knew sewing anything that night would be in my dreams. 
So i decided there and then that i would just tie the Iro/wrapper on a nice top and jazz it up with some accessories.



Black Chiffon Top with Lace Detail: River Island
Ankara Fabric: Elegance veritable wax
Neck Piece: Accessorize
Wristwatch: MK
Bag: Vivienne Westwood (Old)
Red Suede Shoes: Autograph-Marks & Spencer (Old)

  10. Style is truly personal and eternal. I mean not so many young ladies would have an inkling what to do with a piece of un-sewn fabric, let alone come up with such simple, classy, and nice outfit as you have. Thumbs up!

  11. Dear Stylefash,
    Kindly send Adamu with the Vivienne Westwood bag to my house, if he doesn't meet me at home he can drop it with Ibrahim (my photographer/gateman, don't worry I trust him). Nice ensemble. I love come dine with me as well.....the food, the scheming, the commentary and the scoring...just hilarious.
