STYLE WITHOUT FASHION

Wednesday, 26 November 2014

Fashion, including what it stands for or is defined to be changes in a pace that even a writer cannot keep up with. But for all that it is and it gets to be, one would expect to see remnants of older styles or at least a progression of what used to be becoming what is and what is defining what is to be.
 
 
 Not in all cases however. Like a river without a source, a direction or even a flow of some sort; how can that still be referred to as a river.
  
 Picture the river, at the moment, dancing with pizzazz, swelling with currents and waves higher than you can imagine. Provocatively carrying everything in its wake, imposing, exposing, revealing, seducing, and yet when you look back the river possesses no signs of being what it is.
 And ahead, the waves falter losing class, style and finally break up in all directions bringing an end to the meaning that they once gave to fashion and as a result refusing to define a path for further flow.

 Flowing not with the current but like a flag; without a mind and thus a liking of its own changing direction with the wind. And when the wind is gone, it falls flat on its pole, like fashion does when style is gone.

DISCOVERING NEW STYLES BLACK LOOKBOOK

Monday, 24 November 2014

 Fashion enthusiasts like to try out new styles every now and then. Some stick with what works for them and others grow in and out of styles as they…well you know.

 Some have preferences, styles they prefer, maybe because of their careers or well… all the other things that make them prefer certain styles.
And then there are those who like to mix and match, spice up things, and try to rewrite or create new styles.


Being creative is a little difficult when it comes to things that everyone looks up to.
A creative chef can mix ingredients randomly, but the end result is not always servable. For instance, ketchup and coffee,


salad and milk, salt and honey, alcohol and beans, well… you get the idea.
But it is usually those who push the limits of fashion that come up with new styles and more often than not become trend setters.


And of course there are those who ruin everything for everyone, you know, some stuff you just don’t wanna see.

 And of course others like myself, like to write and sometimes fantasize about it all.
 Words adapted from A fashion passion,

JIMMY CHOO FRAGRANCE

JIMMY CHOO FRAGRANCE



writing about my beauty items, makes me feel like i'm talking about my choice of pant or bra, I mean its personal, but I could not resist the need to talk about these two.
so I go for this monthly event DMP and most times to shop, other times to come out of my shelf(I love my room). Last moth While attending same event, I was lured to buying the above fragrance, for N800 though, I chose the scent from the first time feel, didn't know what to expect afterwards.
glad to say its the best fragrance, i've stumbled on in a long time, the scent lingers so long you definitely have to feel good about yourself

TRINKET   

This trinket, I bought for the love of all things vintage, I've wear it barely, because I think its such a beautiful wardrobe item. also bought at DMP for N1000.
for people wondering, the event holds every month in Abuja, City Park, first Saturday of every month, you might see me strutting by, don't forget to say Hi

I DONT SEE THE BENEFIT OF COMPARISONS AND NUMBERS___NENGI

Friday, 21 November 2014



 Fashion has never looked this good, stumbled on her style on Instagram and I must say its refreshing seeing someone stick to their style when everyone is trying to be someone else.. her blend of nude colors and her pretty self makes this post one of my favorite.. lets meet Nengi, blogger of Runway ribbons and stylist from United Kingdom and much ado about blogosphere the comparisons and numbers that have made some of us go wild!!!


Name: Nengi Willie-Pepple
Country: United Kingdom
Blog address: http://www.runwayribbons.com/




What is Fashion to you?
·         Fashion to me is a distinctive style in the way people choose to dress. It’s different personalities and attitudes all trying to be seen and heard.

How would you describe your style?
·         It’s quite hard for me to describe my style because it keeps growing, but since it has to be put in words, I’d say my style is sort of edgy chic.

What trend in the fashion industry gets you worked up?
·         No trend comes to mind, but that’s because I rarely follow trends.

How do you see your style?
·         My style is pretty cool and comfortable.

Where do you get your inspiration?
·         I get inspiration from TV Shows, photography and some of my favourite fashion icons.

Favourite wardrobe item?
·         Currently, my camel cape. It just goes with everything I love to wear this season!

Challenge you face as a style blogger?
·         Consistency and writing. It’s quite hard to keep a regular schedule of style posts when you have other priorities. But I’m working on it, because consistency is very important. With regards to writing, I wouldn’t say this is a ‘challenge’ as such, because I love writing. However, some outfits I put together are simply just that. Outfits. There are no cute stories behind my jumper or funny metaphors to make my readers laugh. Sometimes there’s just no reason behind what I wore. I simply felt like it. But you can’t just write ‘I felt like it’ at the bottom of all your lovely blog pictures, which is where the ‘challenge’ of writing comes in.

What is in your current wish list?
·         iPad mini
·         iPhone 6
·         A new camera lens
·         A bunch of things in my ASOS saved basket

Favourite quote?
·         “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson


Style and beauty secret?
·         It’s not actually a secret, but one thing I never fail to do is to take off my make up before I go to bed. 

Much ado about the blogosphere, your experience and things that needs to be addressed?
·         Blogging for me is great. I love the new friends I’ve made, and the niceties that come with it all. It’s one of my favourite hobbies to date! What I don’t really like about the ‘blogosphere’ as you so nicely put it, are the comparisons that come along with it. I don’t see the benefit in being compared to one another, when none of us are the same two people and never will be. Usually, what people compare against, are a bunch of inaccurate information. I just don’t think it’s fair to compare, when you don’t have all the information and probably never will. If comparing is how you evaluate your worth, then you will always be losing. I try to stay away from doing it to others as well as myself.

·         Numbers. Thanks to social media, blogging has become a big numbers game. For the bloggers, for the sponsors, for the viewers, for just everyone. If you don’t have the highest numbers, somehow you’re losing the race. What’s that about?! We all seem to want a large following for whatever reason. Maybe to be noticed or to get freebies or to get fantastic deals with companies etc. But the way I see it is, the numbers don’t even matter anymore, because if someone can cheat their way to the top (e.g. buy followers) and still get the same amount of attention and recognition as someone who worked their way to the top, then what’s the point?! The final ‘prize’ isn’t anything to write home about if both parties achieve the same thing. I try and focus on content rather than numbers.

Thanksgiving is around the corner what are you grateful for?
·         I’m grateful for my life, my family, my home and my friends.

Fun facts about you?
·         I have a deep love for seafood
·         I never leave my house without my iPod
·         I can do the splits
·         I love travelling and reading books
·         I really, really, dislike cats. It might even be a hate



THE WAY I AM

Thursday, 20 November 2014

 Somethings just exist for a reason
others just exist without reason
darkness falls on daylight
shadows fall in light.


 Today, I don’t know reason
I guess its too late to reason
the coming and going of seasons
now slowing down for no reason


If I seems to have lost it
style, preference, class or taste
its not because I do not care
at crossroads I am, seasons seem not to care
