(Paper) Bag Lady

As far as skirts go, I'm a pencil-skirt-wearing-kinda-girl.  I usually don't mess with pleats, A-line and everything in between as I think they're not flattering on me.  This paper-bag skirt from Asos caught my eye because it was dirt cheap the vibrant green looked awesome and I imagined wearing it with a blue top to get that green on blue contrast that I'd being keening for. 

Well the skirt arrived and it turned out to be a midi skirt which didn't flatter me in anyway.  A quick dash to Ahmet the obioma tailor sorted the length and when it was time for the skirt to get some action I realised the blue top I wanted to wear it with was the wrong shade! Arghhhh! 

Asos textured paper-bag skirt

I decided to wear it with a black chiffon sleeveless shirt and accessorised with a statement necklace.

Channel Orange

Hi Dears,
No point apologising and promising I'll be a good lil blogger, I guess it has gone beyond that.  Yes my long leave of absence has everything to do with work, matter of fact,  I'm dedicating this post to my gateman Ibrahim who walked up to me this morning and declared "Aunty no vex o but na which day we go take am for fishure (picture to those who don't know)" he asked flashing a smile with a mouth full of plenty strong white teeth (Dude's got a decent set I tell you).  I looked at him aghast as I tried to balance my laptop bag, handbag and iPad.  "We go take am when you come help me carry one of this bag" I retorted but secretly smiling inside, apparently Ibrahim likes taking pictures and directing 'shoots'.  

I decided to indulge the poor guy (and myself inclusive) to a quick shoot

Sorry got to run! BTW I love this top and the beading on it is exquisite

Thanks for stopping by!
