Wedding Saturdays - Nomnso & Oby

Another Saturday, another wedding.

Honestly I can't remember the last time I had a lazy Saturday. Between buying aso-ebi, planning bridal showers and hen nights and the umpteenth bridal group on Blackberry I'm about ready to put up a black dp the next time one of my friends announces he or she is engaged.

I. Am. Exhausted.

If my friends could just elope they'd make life a whole lot easier for real.

Fashi the complaints sha I love a good party so last Saturday I journeyed down to KFA to party with my friend from uni Nomnso and his beautiful wife Oby.

Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures during the wedding because I don't have a camera anymore so I begged and bribed my brother Chidi to help me take these with his iPhone before I left home.

*this iPhone camera is the business, I really need one in my life*


Metallic dress worn as top from Indigo Boutique; Lady Biba 'Jasmine' skirt; Michael Kors python clutch; River Island studded sandals; Plated choker and bracelet from Jewel By Iyunade.

Yah, I wore a dress as a top.

Due to the incessant cash hemorrhage caused by my love of the good life, I am pretty much always skint. I designated August as a no-shopping month and besides the outfit I had made for my cousins wedding last week I have not bought a single fashion item this month. I had absolutely nada to wear for this wedding and since I couldn't buy anything new I decided to shop my closet and came up with this silver metallic dress I bought from my friend and blogger Jibby's store, Indigo Boutique. I've had this dress for about 5 years now and worn it only twice in that time, thank God I hadn't given it away or sold it. I paired it with this maxi skirt by Lady Biba I got at LPM last month and heaved a sigh of relief that it was at least presentable.

Shop your closet guys, you never know what you may find.





I need to do a special post on this hair I have on. It is sold in Nigeria and so seriously affordable, will give you guys the info soon.

Love and light xx

  2. Gorg. You body seems to pull anything off. You're probably one of those that could wrap up in paper bags and still look great. I can't believe you had a skirt over a dress and it worked. I'm getting great tips from you. Thanks

  3. You just proved to me that i am not a compulsive wardrobe hoarder but a'saver-for-those-unpredictable-days' person. I can keep clothes for years too and people just don't understand why i do it. Lovely dress-skirt combo, so loving the hair too.

    1. Follow me and give a shout out to the Most High that we can still even fit into old clothes. That's a super power not to be sniffed at at all.

      Thank you xx
