Everyone Has One

Everyone has that one dress (or in my case two) for whenever, you're running late, have to get ready something in ten minutes for a spontaneous dinner date, or a last minute outfit that you already know looks chic on you. This COS dress is that dress for me, I have it in Grey and Coral, and if COS creates other colors, I'll buy those ones as well. (You guys don't understand how much I LOVE COS). 


 Outfit Details:
COS Jersey Dress (SOLD OUT) similar in blue (here) like this (here)
Mawi Chunky Statement Necklace (SOLD OUT) similar (here) + (here)
Christian Louboutin Pigalle 100's (here) + cheaper version (here) + (here)
Vintage Gold Chain Shoulder bag similar (here) + (here)
Kenneth Jay Lane Ram Bangle (here)

A lot of friends have seen this dress and it's grey fraternal twin on so many occasions, I'm sure they probably think, not this dress again Ag, when I wear it. But honestly Everyone Has One dress that they love wearing over and over again. I definitely wear this dress at least 2-6 times a month....don't let the blog posts fool you!

To add a little accesory spice I wore my new Kenneth Jay Lane Ram Bangles and my own handmade rings. Oh yea, this is my new hair cut too!! So do you like...Or are you thinking....'WHY?!?!?' I must admit I totally miss my afro at times, but with my after wedding weight gain and battle to loose this excess weight. I can now work out and start my day without any hassle. Besides it's hair...it'll grow back!!!

Afro Exodus

For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you know I've done something drastic lately...I cut my hair. I've been wanting to for the last several years but didn't because of Pharmacy Placements and then my wedding was coming up and I wanted a classic natural hair style. I must admit I do miss my full afro and the lovely twist outs I used to achieve, thus enjoy this post because my Afro is gone!
Outfit Details:
COS (Sold Out) like this (here)
Banana Republic Trousers (here) + (here)
Vintage Ferragamo Shoulder similar versions (here), (here) + (here)
Salvatore Ferragamo Varina (here) + cutout version on sale (here)

I am loving black and white combinations (channelling an inner Janelle Monae maybe?) at the moment. I'm that girl that has about 10 pairs of different black trousers, I didn't know until I starting noticing how easy black trousers are to coordinate with anything...like these new Blue Ferragamo Varina's. A girl can never have too many Varina's!

Ankara Obsession

One of my current obsessions are ankara designed/printed handbags. My friend Kunbi was rocking one this summer and I asked her where's mine?, as we often do!! I couldn't stop thinking about the fabulous bag she was rocking and taunting me with on our various summer outings (how I miss my girls!) Months later thanks to my dear friend in Nigeria I had several babies to call my own.
 Outfit Details:
American Apparel Tee Shirt (here) + cheaper option (here)
H&M Maxi Skirt (here) + similar (here)
Custom Made in Nigeria Ankara Bag
Adjustable Ring From Harlem New York similar (here)
Pearl wrap around bracelet from Aliexpress (here)
Christian Louboutin Pigalles (here) + (here) cheaper option (here)

These beauties give a pop of colour to any and every outfit, while also reminding my of my background and deep rooted culture. I wouldn't have it any other way!!!
