Accessory: Retro Casio Watch WR10M & Casio Gents Digital Sports Watch for N2,500 At Obalende Market!

Enough said about retro shirts, retro shoes, bags what about other accessories like watches?

If you read my article about my summer gifts which included a Jessica Carlye watch (which I lost while hustling for a bus to the office), it made me go back to my Casio silver watch. Then again I had to buy another Casio but of course thrifting!

Watches may not really be in trend the way clothes, shoes and bags are but it’s an important accessory that needs to be carried around. If you notice quite well, people of class and style wear Casio- FACT!

I personally can’t do without a watch, it makes my wrist feel NAKED!

The retro watch making a huge comeback is the CASIO watch and I have been obsessed for 3 years. Although Daniel Wellington wrist watch wanted to take over but Casio has some qualities I rather stick to.

Some retro watches you must have known while growing up are;

  1. ETSY CALCULATOR WATCH
  2. G-SHOCK
  3. ROLEX VINTAGE WATCH

At least I’m that old to remember those..lol

Things you don’t know about Casio Watches:

  1. G-Shock is a line of watches manufactured by Casio, designed to resist mechanical shock and vibration. Its full form is Gravitational Shock
  2. Even Baby G watches are made by Casio companies
  3. Other Casio products are; cash registers, hand terminals, projectors, pianos, digital cameras and label printers.
  4. The Casio batteries last up to 10years (ah..long enough to meet my first child)

I went online for a new Casio watch as a “big girl” that I am, only to find out that that one-time “mallam watch” of a Casio watch price ranges from N6,500- N35,000 !. Nooo…I wasn’t  having it and neither was my bank account at the moment. I resolved thrifting and found two Casio retro watches I’m gonna keep rocking for life! 

I found the Casio WR10M and the Casio Gents’ Digital Sports Watch (black) which in total costs N2,500 (uhuh…say that again) when I could have spent N18,500 altogether! (Lucky me)

Yaba Market Haul: N7,000 Tough Leather Bags!

Yes, I thrifted 3 lovely bags for N7,000 at the famous Yaba market!

It feels really good to be back especially after my phone was stolen! One of the things that got my mind off things was thrifting. Sounds weird but I went to Yaba market with the “sole aim” of buying a mom jeans but ended up thrifting three lovely bags!

I went for a cream-colored “laptop” bag for N2500, A mini animal purse for N2500 and a burgundy  Jack Danni minimal bag for N2000.

After sighting this three cuties and the texture, I couldn’t help but purchase them. I haven’t had big bags since Uni (2years now). It feels really good carrying authentic bags (as per real tough leather) which some fairly-used items have.

At least I guarantee these bags would last more than 3 years which is quite cheap if you calculate it *winks* I can’t wait to style these babies in my next post!

What to consider when going thrifting

  1. You must note that not all thrift items are worth buying regardless of the price. When thrifting at Yaba, the best time to go thrifting is evening time from 6pm prompt and keep your eyes to the ground.
  2. Don’t go to Yaba broke! Yes, you will make yourself feel bad after seeing good stuff to you would like to buy.
  3. When bargaining for a price make sure you start with a lower price you intended so that if you have to increase it, you would stay at a price you can afford instead of going higher.
  4. Be careful of thieves!
  5. You are going to get persuasions from Yaba men (sellers) which can make you go crazy but don’t, smile and calmly refuse.IMG_20170911_084239_161[1]

Tgif! I really don’t have much to say today but let the pictures speak a 1000 words. February started out really tough but came through in the end. It’s month of March and I’m being “all shades of broke”.

I made a list of everything I needed in life and prioritised but hey, a girl can never have enough. So, less words today so I can go on ahead and figure this “broke-cation”kinda thing..LOL

SO, WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN UP TO AND HOW HAS THE FIRST QUARTER OF 2017 BEEN FOR YOU?

 

 

Easy Peasy With Matching Pastel Colours!

img-20170105-wa0005Pastels are soft colours, basically connotes the beginning of summer or announcing the summer season. Pastels are light weighted- I mean they are friendly to the eyes when looked upon. The colours are; dusty blue, dusty lilac, dusty orange, mint, pale pink etc.

How I styled my denim shirt (faded) and a pastel pink pleat skirt.

I basically wanted a cool chic look by combining these two colours simply because the skirt is so cute! The colour is absolutely soft and the pleats were well defined.

I did a bit of DIY and cut off the pleat (to a midi sized skirt)  to give it this chic look. I decided to complete things up by rocking a matching jelly sandals to the look and accessorized with my layered choker.

Be fearless in matching two different pastel colours and remember to keep things minimal because less is more!

SO ladies, explore your creativity with matching pastels!img-20170105-wa0006
