On the Grid

Hello My Loviessss,

Yes i know its late to say Happy New Year but i'll say it all the same; HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! 
First of, i didn't quite have a break from work and i continued into the new year with the same work buzz and you can imagine my body decided to show me who the boss is. I've been down with the flu and for some strange reason i had the bloggers brain block and didn't know what to blog about.

Anyways, i am so happy to be back in blogsphere and i know this year promises to be an eventful, favored and a year of accelerated progress.

My outfit for today is in line with the grid trend that has been in for a while. I fell in love with the fashion trend immediately i saw it. I am a lover of Polka dots, Plaid, stripes etc so the grid pattern was definitely going to get on that list.


So I went to Shoprite in Ikeja for the first time sometime in December and i was so impressed. They have so many more stores and so many more people. Anyways i went with my male bestie Kay to get some gifts for his bosses and i saw the Mr. Price store. I remember buying a few things from them in South Africa. So we went in just to see what they had and the set up sort of brought back memories of school days & Peacocks in London. Their prices were very friendly and they had a lot of stuff. My worry however was with the quality because i know when some brands come to Nigeria, the quality tends to reduce and i don't know why. 



Anyways i looked round, saw some nice things but nothing really caught my eye until i found this lovely grid button down caddy. I like everything about it and guess what, it was less than N5,000. 
I plan to rock it well but i just thought to start with monochrome styling before switching things up a bit the next time i rock it.




My Outfit
Grid Caddy: Fit for Mr. Price
Skirt: Zara Old
Shoes: Autograph M&S
Bag: Russell & Bromley
Neckpiece: Christmas gift from Bex dearest.




Thanks for always reading lovies. 

xoxo.

    Do we know what color will be in vogue for the first part of this year? Just curious :-)
    I remember this time last year emerald was the talk of town at least here in the UK......fortunately I did have some emerald stuffs that I completely forgot I had so it was a good opportunity to dig out oldies....and then a way of revisiting my accessories 'palace'.

    'AnywayZZ' it's good to read your first blog of the year and I foresee a great year ahead. Wishing you every success in your endeavours.....

    Peace out :-)
