A Love Affair With Polka Dot

16:00Lade Ibikunle

I never thought the day will come that I will like polka dot, enough that I will be clad in one. Me??? I just don’t like the image of too many circles/holes cluttered in one place! But see me now, wearing polka dot and looking so damn good in it!

I think Sarah Audu is rubbing off on me (she is the queen of polka). Permit me to go philosophical at this point. The saying ‘Never say never’ seems to suffice per this situation. Sometimes we are so hell-bent on not trying new things, giving chance a chance, and we actually forget to live. Life is not so deep and it shouldn’t be tightened so close to your chest. Let loose, let go, let God and live a little. You’ve only got this one life so make good use of it. NEWSFLASH: Re-incarnation is a facade.

You’ve only got one shot at this, so use it wisely. You don’t want to look back on your old, frail self with regret, wishing you have done half the things you didn’t do. Okay? Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk 😀.

I really love this dress that I got for cheap while thrifting. It’s the  perfect holiday dress especially with the cross-cross detail at the back. I styled it with a pair of mules with black bow detailing and a green cross-body bag! Perfect right?
