Hey guys.

So were back again with another collaboration. The theme this time is Christmas party outfits. Now let me be perfectly honest with you guys and say that I have never been to a Christmas party. Ok so maybe that's not entirely true if church Christmas parties count but all those times I never dressed up. So this challenge was a chance for me to go to a Christmas party in my head lol.

Initially, I wasn't sure of the entire look but I knew I wanted to wear read. So I took inspiration from Jadore's Christmas party look and brought back one of my favourite skirts which I'm sure you guys remember very well, I have styled this skirt here, here and here.

As Diane mentioned and as I agree, I love that a lot of us rocked red as if it was planned. The links will be updated later. Be sure to check the other bloggers!

Merry Christmas in advance!



One thing about Nigerians is that we like to brag or should I say claim fellow Nigerians who are doing well. Regardless of if the person is quarter or half Nigerian, we still like to emphasize the fact that we're from the same country. I guess it's the National pride.

Today's post features some of my favourite Nigerian fashion bloggers. This post does not cover even half of us I'm sure but these are some of the bloggers that inspire me. You might recognize some of the faces while some of these ladies might be new to you.

What are some of your favourite Nigerian fashion bloggers?



In my opinion, a blazer and jeans pairing is the simplest to throw together. The jeans offers laid-back comfort while the blazer dress up the outfit and pulls everything together hence these items compliment each other. On those days where one wants to look chic but still casual this is the ideal outfit. Now, the addition of a scarf puts a bit of your style into the look and this particular scarf adds the perfect pop of colour and print to this outfit.

I just want to share a quick verse that really caught me while reading my bible.
"But if it is from God, you will not be able to overthrow them, You may even find yourself fighting against God" (Acts 5: 39)
This got me thinking, how often do we persist with our plans even though its not from God or how often do we get discouraged when we don't get what we prayed for. This verse is a simple assurance that if anything is from God, you will not be able to stop it but if it isn't from him and you keep persisting you end up struggling with God. My prayer these days is simply "let his will be done". I believe there is no greater way then the will of God.

Thanks to my sister, Blessing for these pictures.

Hola, from Malabo, Equatorial Guinea.
 I am currently spending time with my family due to my dad's new job posting here. I'll be here till next year, just waiting for NYSC, which is a Nigerian youth training program.

Now on to today's outfit, grey is an ideal fall colour and as I said in yesterday's inspiration post, I have been seeing bloggers and people a-like rocking this trend. Today I decided to put my spin on this grey on grey trend by adding this edgy necklace which looks like a weapon to me and then finishing the look off with my lace-up booties.

Sidenote: It's always interesting when I have an audience while taking pictures, to them it seems so strange and looks funny but it makes sense when you see the finished results. My parents still don't understand this fashion blogging thing lol, but my mom said I looked good in this outfit.
