Ripped

I'm moving back home in a couple of months so I've been cataloging my clothes dividing them into "keep", "sell" and "give to charity". 

The ones for sale are going to be put up on a new blog address called Shop TWP and they are basically clothes and accessories that are brand new or pre-loved but in fantastic condition. The ones that don't go up on the site will be sold off in a wardrobe sale when I get back to Lagos in July. 

Lord knows it'll be a miracle if I ever get it off the ground even because I'm a renowned hoarder, I can save stuff for years. At my last wardrobe sale I actually cried when my things were getting sold off.

I think I like clothes and bags more than I like people sometimes :)

The long and short of this fabulously cool story I'm telling is that I discovered these jeans I'm wearing in the pictures below when I was rummaging through the piles of stuff I have stashed all over my flat, I haven't seen them in years. They were regular old skinny jeans that I ripped and frayed myself a few years ago and haven't worn in yonks.

LOVE them still.






Overlook my Blue Steel, I wasn't pissed or nothing but dark lippie and ripped jeans don't really go with wide toothy grins.

In case anyone's interested in my goth pout, its Revlon lipstick in Black Cherry.

Fishtail braid comes separately


Lol.

I've finally perfected my fishtail braid, like I'm on pro type levels now.

*big things poppin'*

On a completely unrelated note, anyone on here watch Basketball Wives Miami? Like, what do you guys think about the foolywang going on this season with Evelyn and Tami tapping into their inner teenage bully week after week. I don't even want to get into the hot mess to the power of a thousand that's Evelyn's ratchet ass assistant Nia. I can't lie I'm one of the people that loves the drama all these reality shows bring but all this season I've been cringing watching Tami and Evelyn gang up on Jennifer, all because she doesn't want to be friends with them anymore. Until I started watching these shows I had this idea in my head of grown women being all serene and regal and only bothered with taking care of their families but they've taught me that women never grow up. We're all still teenagers in secondary school, with all the gossiping, back-biting and bullying.

Ridiculous.

I'm not so mad that I'll go sign the petition to get Eve & Ocho from airing in September though, looking forward to seeing Evelyn make a bigger fool of herself  :)

Love and light xx

  1. i totally agree with you on basketball wives,gaad!!! the foolery!!! tami is talking about how they dont sue people where she comes from,but she was going to sue evelyn for defamation with the 't-shirts' issue last season..and eve too such a hypocrite,she used to call royce a bum bitch season 1-3,so jen can't call nia a bum now? if jen's assistant slapped evelyn..the case will be different and wayyyy bigger..she would raise hell and high water and say things worse than bum bitch/2 bedroom apt..sigh!!!..i just read on TMZ today that vh1 producers are suing Jen,lol..this issue is going left real quick..Long Rant...

    p.s: I hope when you move back you still put up posts as frequently,i love them,even though i know you will be looking to get a job,get married etc..lol,pls dont forget your followers xx

    1. VH1 is suing Jen? Why? Dang I need to get to TMZ asap, that's insane. They put her in situations where she gets assaulted repeatedly and she still gets sued? Ridiculous. Eve actually used to be my favourite but everytime she opens her mouth she just pisses me off. That "bum bitch" nonsense was so hypocritical, she says it so much its practically a catch-phrase now but when Jen uses it its a problem, silly ass woman.

      I intend to, it should be easier even because I'll have more people around me to help me take pictures as opposed to my living alone situation here.

      Hahaha at getting a job and getting married, from your lips to Gods ears my dear.

    1. Lol, don't know where this popular misconception sprung from that I'm so tiny. I'm 6 feet, size 10 and my statistics are 34-25-42. Faarrrr from tiny trust me. Sometimes when the going gets rough I even wear size 12.

      It should, as soon as I can get off my lazy ass and decide what I want to sell

  5. I'm quiet surprised at Tami though with all she's been through and all that can't believe she's acting like that. Evelyn on the other hand has always been a bully and if she doesn't want to end up behind bars she needs to calm herself down. As for Nia no comment she is a nonM****factor.... LOL

    1. Nia needs to go to jail, like Jen shouldn't back down from that lawsuit. They must all get their just desserts. If Evelyn had hit Kenya with that bottle she'd def be chillin in prison now. Tami just wants to be in the "circle" so bad she'll repress her natural caring instincts. She and Evelyn have become a kind of bullying tag team and their personalities are so large they just swallow up everyone elses.

  12. my gosh, evelyn's is a prime example of beautiful outside with the ugliest interior; she is such a hypocrite *rewinds* to season 1 when evelyn was judging royce on the way she dresses and the loubs and herve she DIDN'T have so why is evelyn beefing jen for "keeping it 100 bougie" & saying it like it is, jen is probably above bourgeoisie so I am pretty sure she wasn't squatting indefinitely in Harlem...she could stay upper east side a la Blair Waldorf if she wanted to; people need to leave Jen alone, she is a much better person without Evelyn controlling her & yes Nia needs to aspire to being more than just Evelyn's assistant.

    You look lovely x

    1. Everything you said and a GBAM for further effect. Whoever hosts the reunion show better show clips of Evelyn calling everybody and they mama "bum bitch" and looking down on Royce, then we'll see how she has the mouth to still judge Jen after that.

      Ta xx

  13. ha! vh1 is suing Jen ke? when they purposely put her in dangerous situations so that ppl will watch. na wa oh. however, maybe it was in their contract that whatever they see they will chop and not sue, cos u practically sign ur life away for all these tv shows. na dem sabi. jen shld kuku leave the show.

    madam, u're tiny oh. i was a size 14 right from SS3, and i'm 6ft as well. I'm a struggling 16 now, it's not funny. so yeah, u're tiny. and that lipstick looks so good on you !

    1. Hey Jillian *waving frantically* Thanks so much, my motto is try new stuff this year, hence the new lip colour as opposed to my usual nude or red.

  19. hi TWP... my first time commenting on your blog, though i've been quite an avid follower. and my friends at work who see me browsing your blog instead of working think you're absolutely fabulous :).....please i have a question for you though. would you know where one can purchase nigerian labels online? i often see all these beautiful clothing in all different styles and textures on Bellanaija, and scroll excitedly to the bottom, hoping they would have an online store, but alas! they don't. the thing is i don't live in Nigeria, yet most or all of these stores seem to only be located in naija. ... so please, would you know of any?

    by the way, thanks for introducing me to Virgos Lounge. immediately i saw the the link you posted few weeks ago, i ran there and have now ordered an item (so excited) thanks girl

    ReplyDelete
  20. Cheesing like mad at the "absolutely fabulous".

    I doubt there are a lot of them, I personally know of only two other sites besides Virgos Lounge; geeksandstitches.com, www.malakhandsco.com. Malakh and co also stock items by Nigerian designers like Grey and Republic of Foreigner so you can try them out.

    Oh nice, another VL convert. Woop!
