Merry Christmass to you all! I hope that you are doing well doing this festive season, enjoying the break & peace with your loved ones during this special season. Just wanted to share with you this outfit that I wore to the only Christmass party that I attended this year which was held an acquintance's house. I decided to go for a very simple look with this pre-loved black Zara dress that I had thrifted back in summer & spruced it up a bit with one of my favourite neckpieces, a gift...

What do you when you have to an Event to go in the evening after work but have no time at all to change your outfit? Well, then you need to be creative; switch your casual shoes for heels, add some fancy socks to the mix, refreshen your make up & add a red lip & voila, you are ready go.

Hope that I am not too late for the 'Mom-jeans' party but as they say, 'better late than never'. And as I always approach trends with caution, this new discovery was fround on Ebay, for a fraction of it's original price. Let's just say, I am already shopping for another pair of Mom-jeans to add to my collection because it is everything that i need in a pair of jeans, & especially in the warmer months.

There will be absolutely no twirling for me in this dress, well, not unless I have on some tights with it. I had some fabric left over from an order & decided to make my first wrap dress, which turned out a bit short but quite fun too.

Finding a camel coat that was the perfect length that I wanted & which was affordable too turned out to be a major problem. So, I decided to make one myself which turned out quite cute especially when styled with this Gingham top that I made myself too. And now that the sunny & warmer side of Spring is taking it's sweet time to show up, I get a chance to rock my new coat now.

I'm slowly trying to build up my collection of neutral pieces in my wardrobe & this Grey slogan tshirt is the very first that I own. It is one of my favourites not only because of the fit but also because I love the message that it carries.

Embroidery or appliques on pieces are very on trend at the moment & as always for me, I like to test such trends first on DIYs before investing in them. This striped shirt has been in my closet for almost 5 years & i thought a little embroidery on it would give it a 'new lease of life'. So, i cut out some flowers from a floral Ankara print that i had left over & embroidered these on the shirt, & I really love how different the shirt looks now. I styled it with this DIY leather...

2 years ago today, I officially registered 'Oriwo-Design' & a lifelong dream of mine came true, and it truly still feels like a dream. ,You know that saying that goes 'If you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life', well, it's not true. I do what I love every single day and it is really hard work. But the only difference is that there this feeling of satisfaction & happiness that I get when a client loves an outfit that I made them, that is just unbeatable. Thank you so...

Who among us doesn't start a new week full of motivation, plans & goals that they have set to achieve. Just like at the beginning of a new year, we all make resolutions, whether it is to eat a bit healthier, drink more water, reply Emails on time, clear what's on your work plan for the week, exercise a little, go to bed a bit earlier, spend less time on social media, read the Bible a bit more or simply to set out your outfit the previous day instead of in the morning when you are already...

It has been raining quite a lot in the last few weeks so waterproof shoes have definately been a requirement. I've had these 'Timberland inspired' boots for over 4 years & they always come to my rescue when it's cold & rainy. When i bought them they were a light shade of brown in colour which was quite difficult to maintain seeing that they are worn when the ground isn't exactly dry. So, I dyed them to the darker shade that they are now & this has been quite practical. I like the...
