Pearls + Feathers

Hi All!
How did your weekend go? Mine went really well. Will be sharing my looks from the last two weekends today.
I wore this look two weeks ago, it was a Friday and I needed to have fun, my first stop was in Unilag where I hooked up with my Photographer Friend Lanre Ayilegbe who took these awesome photos then I went on my journey..lol! That evening was the Afrpolitan Vibes at Freedom park and it was so much fun, my new job kinda makes me discover these cool hangout spots and events, that's my second time attending and I loved it, its every 3rd Friday of the month so y'all should try to go to the next one, they have amazing live performances with a band and all and they sell palmwine in a calabash + the event is totally free! except the 200 you need to pay at freedom park gate.
I believe I've been able to defeat my fear of showing off my big tummy with this croptop and high waist bottoms trend..lol! it didnt look so short in the mirror but these photos prove otherwise, still looks nice I guess. Went ahead to get one in different colors *don't judge me* Paired it with my ever faithful Jeggings, still looks good after all these years, one of those things I couldnt let go of after Uni and I think it looks even better than when I first got it.
I accessorized with this Chanel Inspired choker I got from the Accessories2die4 launch party, my tribal beads, rings and my vintage Vivienne Westwood bucket bag, it made its debut appearance in my last post and you will be seeing alot of it just like my Zara slingback pointy pumps! yes its back..lol!
The next look was worn to my childhood friend, Toyosi's wedding. I bought 2yards of the *AsoEbi* which couldn't do much so the style had to look as simple and nice as possible, I saved this photo on my phone a long time ago hoping to make something similar if I found those kinda feathers but I didn't so I forgot about it till the wedding came up, went to the bridal section in Idumota, Lagos Island to hunt for feathers and I found these grey/silver type which is kinda similar and I used it instead and I guess it came out nice yeah.
I had my make up done by my Friend Seyi, her make up studio is close to mine and I believe she did an amazing job, was skeptical when she suggested the purple lipstick but it turned out pretty nice. Wore my coral Steve Madden Marlenee sandals and it matched my *Aso-Oke head-tie perfectly, also wearing The Chanel Inspired choker here and I paired it with Pearl earrings.
 Thats all darlings. so which is your favorite look? Share your thoughts in the comment section below, will love to hear from you. Do have an amazingly productive and blessed week.

PlaiD + PointeD

Hi Darlings!!! Its been a really long while, said I wasn't gonna come back with crappy photos and I think its possible, with the help of Lanre Ayilegbe we shall conquer! lol! Anyway how have you all been? Any new stories or testimonies of God's goodness in your lives?? I'm sure he has because he has been amazingly good in mine and I don't thank him enough, working on it though :) 
Took this photos on Sunday after church, told you Bode Thomas is my new runway..lol.
So I made this plaid dress in 2009 along with some other dresses for final year in Uni, I gave some out, some burned but this one stood the test of time and I'm still rocking it and I guess it still looks great right?
I took advantage of the last Zara sales and bought two beautiful shoes with the help of my dear friend Franky, this yellow sling back pointy pumps is one of them. The way I have been rocking these shoes ehn, one would think its the only pair in my closet. Those who follow me on InstaGram (@Imperfect_Verbalista) will notice it in all my new photos, well you can't blame me, they are super cute and comfy, My mum even asked me to get in all the colors, nawa! like she will pay for them..lol!
Checkout my gorgeous "Yams"
I cant believe I'm smiling this hard, I had a really hard couple of weeks but with God I pulled through. #ThankYouJesus!!!
 He captured my lame attempt at dancing, looks good regardless.
Please ignore my facial expressions, the sun was blazing hot!
So that's it for today, I hope you liked it, please send your suggestions and drop your comments below, will be really appreciated, I love hearing from you guys. Have an amazing and blessed weekend.

Hi All!!! how is it going, I guess its going great! well its been all smiles at my end. I've missed you all, work has becoming a huge part of me and there's no time to blog and when there's time there is no one to take photos, need to get a photographer asap. Anyone who wants to test/enhance their skills should holla ;)
Those who know me well know that this skirt, bag and shoes are my "National Anthem" "One nation" pieces, I have anyone of them on at any point, mostly the shoes sha, the skirt is zara, it was extra plus size and not very good looking when I saw it, it was totally ignored at the store but I saw the full potential and decided to buy it and fit it to the last! lol. I guess I did well with it.
Regards to the title of the post, I'm a fan of TLC and I've been watching their VH1 Biopic "CrazySexyCool" over and over, I'm also listening to my best TLC song, Kick your Game as I'm posting this. Apart from their music their style is very interesting, really quirky too, they managed to combine their 3 personalities Crazy, Sexy, Cool into one, most people would term it as rubbish but I need to give it to their stylist cause she totally understood the brief.
I just had to put this photo on, I never knew I had this signature pose till I saw this photo, did you notice the similarity between me and my graduation photo pose (top left) and no it wasn't planned, total coincidence. yes that's my brother, photo bombing as usual...lol!
Huge grin :)
I hope you liked the photos, by the way did you see my previous post; Seyi Shay + FashPa Summer lookbook...its amazing! you should check it out, FashPa has something for everyone and they are very affordable. Have an amazing week darlings, will love to hear from you.
