STYLE || A LIL SKIN AND SOME TRUTH





I'm sure you are wondering what's with the title?
I've been racking my head for days trying to come up with a suitable title for this post, completely futile.

I've to admit maybe the stress at work is finally getting to me or my creative juice is completely drained or it's time for me to face my new reality. I'm sure you are wondering what's this new reality I speak of right? 

My new reality is a world  filled with fear and a lot of self-doubt *breathes slowly* it took me a while but I'm finally admitting it.




I find myself constantly questioning everything and all sorts of thoughts keep popping in my mind, amidst scattered thoughts, I had an epiphany that birth the title of this post.





The bitter truth is that I feel like I don't share enough about me on my blog, True? I fear that my blog might just be a bit impersonal and I think it's time to fix that. 
Here's the problem, deep down I haven't exactly registered certain things in my mind, I guess I'm still transitioning into this blogging phase.

Funny, how I never actually like to tell people that I'm a blogger, fear that I lack quality content or that I don't know jack shii about blogging  and that beginner's luck got me this far or not?

So, my lovely readers, this is my first attempt at sharing some truth. 
This is me sharing a few of my ugly thought so that you can actually see me for who I am.
 Just an evolving creative, learning, making mistakes and finally admitting to myself that it is okay to make mistakes and most importantly don't let the best of self-doubt get to me. 

Thanks for all your immeasurable support and understanding, for always believing in a baby girl

Now let's talk about this outfit.




This sizzling black piece with a bit of an overall/pinafore dress detail is one of the pieces from Meriah Baccci latest collection. I talked out the first piece I wore here, I also reviewed  her collection here  (do check out both post).
In this post, I talked about stepping outside my comfort zone and trying out new things. I chose to style this dress differently (Peek a boob) *lol* without an inner wear (blouse or shirt). Check out the look book here.



I decided to wear this chunky necklace (a gift from my sis) which has been lying cold inside my jewellery box for a while, white beaded bracelets, a pair of off white/nude box heeled sandals and a red lippie to finish off the look. Viola!!!!

  1. My super star.. I love the dress and my dear we all make mistakes and we all are still growing. I think this dress would suit me though. Just thinking out loud. www.adagirl.com.ng

  2. Praise, the hot chic!! You look amazing. The outfit is perfect. I don't really tell people I'm a blogger too for too many reasons I can't even start explaining. I think it's perfectly normal. For me, I sometimes feel like I share too much on my blog but I can't help it really. I don't think you sound impersonal on here but personal posts would be really cool too. It's all part of the evolving process. Gosh, I thought I was alone on the serious racking of brain for post titles. I enjoyed reading this post. xxx

    1. Laitan*inserts blushing emoji* Thanks dear. I actually thought I was alone, the issue of not telling people that I'm a blogger seemed like a very bad thing but it feels good to know that you also feel the same way.
      One of the many things I love about your blog is that personal tone that you have and I'll try to be more personal on my blog too. Thanks for your kind words and encouragement. Big hugs dear

  3. Praise, I don't think your blog is impersonal, and I get your plight about feeling inadequate. But baby your content gives me life, I sometimes wish I had as many style posts as you do but I'm more writer than fashionista and that's okay because people are different. You just need to work more on your weaknesses and optimize your strengths. You can try new things but don't go out of your way to be like 'other bloggers'. BTW that dress...sexy. Keep on shining girl, and don't let anyone stop you, not even you.

  6. Firstly, you slayed this look. I'm totally in love with it. Secondly, baby your blog is bomb, you've gotta tell people though, only then will you probably find someone who could also help us perhaps a photographer but I won't lie I also feel shy when someone is like hey I saw your blog or you're a blogger right? Sometimes I'm like when I get bigger and better I'll be prouder of the whole blogging thing but then again I'm like hey who cares, baby steps and I'll one day grow into an adult blogger. Flaunt your blog baby girl.

  10. I'm totally with you about the sharing personal and topic racking, sometimes I don't tell people I'm a blogger, other times I do depending on the energy I'm on (lol). Everyone is getting the hang of blogging and I'm sure you will. Have I said how hot you looking in this dress?! Slay on dear. God's got you!

  13. Lovely dress. This is a good way to be open to your readers. After reading this post I doubt your blog is impersonal anymore. You did a good job styling the dress and discussing your fears. Now, it's time to face the fears one by one. You can do it!

  17. Darling, this look is everything! Won't sit well on me though; overly endowed in some areas ;)

    One thing I've learnt about blogging is you don't have to share every detail of you life to become personal. So don't feel pressured to do that. You're doing a great job.

  18. Girl you slayed the life out of this outfit and I know that feeling of not being so personal and all. I think with time you would get more personal. You look beautiful as always l

  19. I love your dress
    I can totally relate, I hardly ever tell people I blog and there are times when I feel like my contents aren't good enough. We'll all be fine, just have to take baby steps in improving your self and not doubting yourself ����

  20. The dress is fire! Made you look fierce! I actually have the same problem with introducing myself as a blogger also and when my friends try to do so, I always try to stop them. I don't know if it's because I lack self confidence (I'm super shy btw) but I'm starting to let go and let the world happen because your impression matters in the blogging world.

  21. Thanks dear.
    Yeah you are absolutely correct, impression matters a lot. I guess i used to be shy too but I've worked on that.
    Cheers to new start and embracing the transitioning phase.
