The Wana Sambo Woman

IMG_8077

Hey girls!

I have been down with a bad flu but I thank God because he has healed me. Sometimes, we would never appreciate good health until we don’t have it so I have learnt a huge lesson this week. Over the last weekend, I got the chance to shoot this gorgeous Wana Sambo slip dress that I bought from her studio. If y’all can remember, I was gushing about this dress when I was reviewing her collection and It was an absolute dream to have it.

The service at the Wana Sambo studio was impeccable because when I first of all got this dress, my weight was fluctuating and the designer, Wana altered my dress at least three times without complaint and it just increased my love for the brand.

When I was styling this look, I wanted it to be very plain because I feel the dress speaks for itself. Its too beautiful with the floral lace cutouts. Any excessive jewelry will have taken away from the dress which is why I opted for the gold stud earrings and some rings. I completed the look with pinkish nude lipstick and nude Christian Louboutin pigalles.

See more pictures below and enjoy!

Yele 034

Hey girls!

So I was tagged by my friend, Mide Coker to do this fun ‘being me’ tag where I answer some questions so that you all can get to know me better. Some of the questions are quite weird and some of them are interesting so if y’all want to know a few things about me…read on. Enjoy…xx

Are you named after someone?

Yes, I am named after my dad.

Haha. I am such a crier. I cry for almost anything and everything. The last time was yesterday when I was watching sleeping beauty. Yes, I still watch cartoons.

Dark Brown

Scary movies or happy endings? 

Definitely scary movies. I am such a romantic at heart but there’s just something about romantic movies that don’t thrill me anymore. I don’t know if it has to do with the fact that current romantic movies are usually very cliche. My scary movies give me so much thrill and a crazy adrenaline rush.

Reading books, listening to music and cooking.

Yes… I am an absolute dog lover. I have 3 dogs and one of them recently gave birth to five adorable puppies.

Favourite movie(s)?

Devil wears Prada. I can recite every single line in that movie word for word.

What colour is your car?

Haha…how about can you drive? but when I do get a car, It will most likely be black or grey.

What do you want to do when you grow up?

I am going to be a fashion entrepreneur. I want to wake up everyday, get glam and walk into my own fashion empire! Big dreams yeah? Well, your dreams are all you’ve got so hold on tight to em.
