Rainy Day

This morning started out like any Monday morning where you roll out of bed, push yourself through all your routine morning chores, then you look at the clock and realize that if you are not careful you would run late to work. So you dash into the bath, dash out, dress up and  hit the street to work.

But unlike every other Monday, I learnt three great lesson today. One, "Always have an alternative". Two, "Always prepare a day before" and the third and last lesson is "Never forget to carry an umbrella this season".

As I waited for my colleague to come pick me as usual, the rain came pouring. As I searched my bag, it hit me, Chiamaka you forgot your umbrella. Shit!! there was no place to run to or hide. Luckily my phone rang, excitedly I picked up the phone just for my colleague to say Chiamaka I won't be picking you up today. Oh My God, where is a taxi. The taxi park is empty, no bus and I am getting soaked.

That was basically how my Monday morning went today. I came to work late and dripping wet while everyone was as dry as the sun which made me feel really sick from inside but the good thing is that I learnt my lesson.

Enjoy my humiliation in pictures, although I tried to gather myself together as well as I could.














If you notice, My pants are still kind of wet and so is my hair. Awaiting your comment on these snap shots.

  3. Lol...I love that story because it happens to me very often. How about wearing suede shoes in a rainy day? I done that because I didn't check for the weather that day :-( I had to find groceries bags to wrap around my shoes and be able to save my booties.
    Your outfit is very professional yet classy and those pants look great on you since you have a nice figure my dear. Thanks so much for your comment in my blog.

Suit And Tie

If you remember correctly, I showed you all My Big Reveal. So today you would be seeing it in an outfit. I woke up with Angelina Jolie's outfit to BAFTA award on my mind so I decided to replicate it while adding my own touch to the ensemble.


 Yeah, I tried it out with a white lace top. Different but me right?


 My ultimate goal was to take the look and make it as ladylike as possible without ruining the effect of the suit and tie. I loved the outcome and received lots of complements on it.
I also decide to play with grey, black and blue as my basics.
 What are your thoughts. Do you think my way of replication is cool or I should just stick to basic white shirt?














SLIVER AND GOLD, I GOT BOTH

Am so sorry dearies for being unavailable for soo long, had to travel impromptu. Even after I got back, I was swamped with work but the good news is that I got to see my mum during her birthday which was totally amazing.

Anyway, today's outfit is from last week (can't really remember the day I wore it). If you have been following me on Instagram you would have seen this look on there.

Alright on my outfit, I wore an all black outfit to work and even though it felt blah to me, my boss was of the opinion that I looked like I was going for a party. As yours truly heard that, I took a snapshot of the outfit. It is not everyday my boss acknowledges my look lol.


The skirt is an old skirt my mum got me in my first year at school but I hardly wore it. Going home this past few weeks I decided to bring with me some of my old clothes and I love the mix of old and kind of new.
Would you rock suck a look to work?, would love to hear your thoughts.





TURBAN DAY

My first attempt at incorporating a turban without wearing a trad went amazing well. I have been tying turbans and scarves a lot lately (and no it isn't religious more like my culture) but never tried it with a top and pants. So today, I decided to break that norm and use a turban with whatever I choose to wear. Hence, this outfit. What are your thoughts?.
