THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE DOWN RIGHT U-G-L-Y YOU AINT GOT NO ALIBI.

Hey everyone, the last post really received a lot of feedback. Just want to use this opportunity to thank everyone who took time to read it. Much l-o-v-e!!!!
LONG NOTE FROM NAIJAFASHIONFREAK TO THE MULTITUDES
Whoever formulated the theory ‘opposites attract’ based on human relationships definitely knew what he/she was talking about because that happens to be the case with my dearly beloved parents.
My parents are complete opposites. My mom epitomizes ‘impatience’ while my dad is criticized for being ‘too patient’. My mom finds every reason to shout; my dad on the other hand, is a peaceful soul. My mother believes in the power of the cane to adjust unacceptable behavior and enforce discipline while my dad believes in the power of words to do the same. Complete opposites I tell you!

As a kid, I used to get the most spanking from my mom. I launched every new cane she bought so much so that the cane and I soon developed a special bond and thus, lost its hold on me, so my mom will be forced to buy a new one. Although, I must admit, I was a hard-headed and terribly naughty child and I rightly deserved the spanking (except for one time my elder sister read a letter and we all got spanked for her misdemeanor).

As any naive kid will think with no understanding of parenthood, I thought my mom absolutely despised me, but, as I grew up I realized she did so because she loved me and wanted a change for the better. God bless her soul!

Anyway, ‘THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE DAMN RIGHT U-G-L-Y YOU AINT GOT NO ALIBI’
Is my way of spanking those I love and desire a change for the best. I decided to use words rather than an actual cane (as if I could do that) because ‘the pen is mightier than the sword’ at least that what was I was told by my PaPa while seated under the palm tree, beside the firewood in the sacred midst of the nights bold creatures as he told me African folktales about the tortoise and the lion…lol…In other words, those who will be victims of the wrath of my pen, I mean no harm. I am neither the girl whose boyfriend you stole or the girl you refused to lend your precious skinny jeans, I am just a poor, innocent and puppy-eyed fashion freak showing you love the only way I possibly can. Enjoy!



This here is my type of woman. One who isn’t afraid to experiment with colours. She looks fab and the colours just seem to complement each other. Neon Brights are one of the top ten trends of the season and she is definitely working it! The skinny jeans are on point, the right length, and colour, as the black makes the colours more evident. She makes use of understated accessories. The black bag strikes a balance as there is a lot of colour going on. Her shoes are just right… I absolutely love the detailing on them. You go girl! Keep the fab flag flying



In the words of Jay-Z ‘what more can I say?’ Where do I begin…take a deep breath…steady now…spit…First, what is up with the cheetah thing going on. Don’t get me wrong, I am a big fan of prints, but why bring the fury friend along. And those beads, haba! Sorry to say, but they look so hocus-pocus something that could definitely get me be-witched! And as for the shoes…the style and shape is ridiculous…two words ‘hawt mess’. My advice, read this blog often and in no time I will be singing your praises.



I really do love giving out compliments…my friends will tell you that I am the sweetest…but… I have to say that I am completely and utterly appalled with this outfit and may I ask, what planet are u from? I do not get the point of the see through socks, I actually have a soft spot for the shoes, they are unique, that I love…but then again…the outfit together is all wrong but there are single great pieces in it. My advice, combining is what differentiates a wanna-be fashionista from a true one!


I am in loving this dress and the lady in it…it some hot shit!!!... The detailing helps to define her waist line and gives her the ultimate vavavoom! It is perfect for her body as she is beautiful and curvaceous! She makes me want to be her in that dress. If I must say kudos to the friend showing of her slim body in that fitted satin print blouse…lovely… Super fab all the way and the colour…MUAH!! Hugs and kisses is all I have to give.

Wow! i am overwhelmed!...I'm speechless, that is how she makes me feel...the boots are completely inappropriate for the Nigerian weather.The hair do is just too alien invasion like... The frustrating thing is she is really cute and has a nice slim petite figure which could work with anything. She has turned the hands of the fashion clock centuries ago. My advice, It is 2007 embrace the year and the fashion!



Are you kidding me? Someone needs to teach this lil mama how to strike a pose! Chest out, stomach in, million dollar smile…as easy as the alphabets a-b-c! The red is just too much, too much for me to handle if not for you! Another glance can definitely cause a loss of sight. Why all the layering at the top half? However, I am feeling the jeans and the whole button thing going on. The jeans scream rock chic, the top screams ‘gypsy girl’…I am getting a lot of mixed signals…and they are not good ones. My advice, make up your mind!

I get a kick out of this lady! She is glowing from top to bottom and she knows it too! She walks in through the gates knowing all eyes will be fixated on her! she really got me looking and admiring the spirit of all things fashionable on her. This lady knows how to walk the walk and look strictly fab at the same time...multitasking! i like! i like very much!


You should be wearing your dress and not your dress wearing you. Here is a small and petite lady pulling off this voluminous and regal outfit! She looks so elegant in this piece with the right jewelry, her flashy necklace is complimented with studs.The bold organic prints are on trend.This is true sophistication to the very core! watch and learn! J'adore!!!!


This lady looks gorgeous! Her hair, make-up, accessories, all just falls into place. She seems to have gotten this whole fashionista thing on the lock-down. It gives me great joy to see Nigerian women representing just as I am saddened when Naija women fail to bring it on! But this lady got me all smiley…She wears the leopard print just right and adds glow with the shimmering silver metallic blazer...all I can say is... thank you for looking so hellishly fab.


Is there some style manual i failed to read? because i am lost here with this whole boot fad up and about!....dressing your age is very important.I don't get it when i see a fifty something year old lady is wearing a see through blouse neither do i get why this lady or should i say 'girl' is dressed like this..If you are twelve and you are attending you class party then be sure to be labelled the 'best dressed' but if you do not fall under that category...hmmnn..wahala dey o! My advice, grow up, your face tells it all!


I decided to give awards for the lady most in need of Professional make-up and the lady most in need of a fashionfreak makeover!!


I don't think there is a need for a drum roll or anything of that nature....i think we all know who the winner is for each category...right???


For the record, I acknowledge that Nigerians are very stylish people and are representing fashion wise.It was difficult finding people who committed fashion blunders and i hope it will be harder the next time i decide to post something similar, as that will only insinuate that Naija women have stepped up their game!

If you need fashion advice of any sort, contact me at naijafashionfreak@gmail.com i will me more than happy to lend a helping hand. and remember my dears to always keep your fashion freak on!


Yours' stylishly,

naijafashionfreak.

how will u explain the 'wide-legged' trousers that the petite lady in the already 'voluminous' dress is wearing? okay she is trying to cover up from the peeks thru the fabric.. er... skinny pants!!... wat is she wearing her office trousers for? she is too little for all that volume. that outfit is definately wearing the petite lady. je n'adore pas!
