The Wedding Guest... Pretty in Pink Ankara Dress.

Hey Poisers! Hello friends!  Hey Guys! 
Haha you can tell I'm excited, I genuinely missed you all a few days has felt like ages! Thank you for the emails and style inquiries. Oh and remember to pleeeease share and subscribe for more posts like this delivered to you! 😘✨

Today I'm sharing with you what I wore to a Nigerian Wedding last weekend. That of a Nigerian Groom and a glowing melanin beauty from the Caribbean. 

I first wanted to wear a western look as usual but then decided to experiment with a more Africanized look. Now anybody who knows me knows I don't like wearing traditional clothes at all, simply because I'm not too keen about that whole trad look as much as I want to be ...not sure why something about it just never clicks for me and I don't get as excited as other people(whether worn on me or others)...God help me! Lol. Am I alone on this? (Tell me your own take in the comments below or email me). However social media has been contributing to fixing this issue as I see many gorgeous and beautifully made ankara materials and styles plus other Nigerian traditional attires all around and let's just say things are getting better and I'm loving it! (chuckles).  

I absolutely love the dress plus design plus ankara print and was asked a few times where I got it. This dress is many in one, a fun piece, classy, colourful, tasteful, vibrant and mature. It has a bow across the front, an elastic banded waist and shoulders (which can be worn as a square neck or and off shoulder). I chose this design myself and had it sewn in Nigeria. Design inspired by the Chloe Dress by DPiperTwins

The shoes (gifted to me a while ago) were even more fun than I presumed as they stole most of the attention that evening attracting compliments after compliments. (I ordinarily would go with a more muted pair of shoes due to the busy print dress but if you're feeling bold once in a while I'd say go for it, after all YOLO).  And guess what... yup, super comfortable they stayed on pretty much all night even as I turned up on that dance floor. Yes your girl dances, heey! But of course my usual calm personality always surfaced which was the perfect combo for a classy looking young lady on a good evening. 

This look is sure to get you admirations and confidence. Here are the visuals enjoy!

Graceful Glow. God's Glow. Poised Glow.

Sweaters, Pleats And Sneakers.

Hey guys! So it's the last day of 2017!!! How was everyone's Christmas? Aren't we truly lucky or rather blessed that Christ came as a gift for us?  In this post I chose to style a green sweater, with this gorgeous pleated skirt and these cool pair of white sneakers from @fashionaccessries (Ig) and then I gracefully draped over a cream raglan overcoat. This look can be worn casually on a day out in town especially during the holiday shenanigans. It can also be dressed up by simply sliding on a pair of heels to look even more sleek. Can you imagine the pop the in transformation?

I will also be styling this sweater differently in a separate post which will be my next post so stay tuned if you'd like to see it or click the subscribe button (up top) to be notified once it's up.

Well hey there! Issa my first post of the year! Let me officially wish you guys a happy happy new year! What was your biggest or most favourite  milestone in 2017? For me I would say one of my favourite ones would be the fact that I started blogging... although I'm not where I want to be yet due to lack of time and other things that have been taking me away from you guys (like my crazy work schedule for starters) so yeah I'm unable to give it my all just yet however I'm quite content thus far and I do believe that this journey is going be getting a lot more exciting this year! I would like to work on quality first before quantity, consistency and helpfulness among others so help me God. Amen. 
2017 was definitely a year of blessing, changes and growth for me. I had a few challenges in the last little bit of the year but I came back strong because yo girl is relentless. The devil thought he had me but through God's help with continuous and fervent prayers from myself, my…
