The Chairlady

how-moji-styled-it-the-chairlady-101.jpg.jpegLiterally. Lol.

Hey yo! How’s y’all doing?

Thought to share my take on the boyfriend-shirt trend (is it still a trend if it’s been around for years?) with you guys today. This shirt actually used to belong to my boyfriend (now ex). I puppy-faced him (yes, that’s a thing) into giving it to me and here we are. #PowerToThePuppyFace 😀

It used to be a tad big when I first got it but that was nothing Ibrahim (my tailor) couldn’t fix. Everybody needs an Ibrahim!

Borrowing from your partner’s wardrobe is one of the fundamental pillars of a healthy relationship. –Moji Ajibona 2016.

Who else thinks I should start giving relationship tips all up in here??? 😂

Anyway, I paired the shirt with my orange shoes (which I also wore here) for a pop of colour and added my printed purse (which I bought for just N200 and never, ever actually rock) to add some character. I think I just might demote it to being just a make-up purse. 

PS: Can we take a minute to celebrate my first “choker” appearance on the blog? 😀 Didn’t think I was a choker-wearing kinda girl for whatever weird reasons I convinced myself into believing, until I just decided to give it a go. I liked how it added a little extra something to the outfit.

In other news, NEPA has been splendid in my area lately. Could it be because I’m the new Chairlady/Area Mother/Alaga Ibile. Yes, I’m aware of how ratchet that sounds. No, I don’t care. :p

Want to be a Chairlady yourself? It’s as simple as wearing a boyfriend-shirt and setting up your chair throne right in the middle of your street. Look as mean as you possibly can for added measure 😉

Subscribe to my blog for more. 😉

In other, other news I miss my braids, currently wearing this hairstyle and I am officially bored. Thinking of making braids my signature hairstyle. What do you think? *I can hear my edges screaming “Hell No Madam!” at the thought!* Lol

Have a splendid week guys!!!! Don’t forget to leave me a comment on what you think of my outfit. As an aside, please let me know what you think of girls who wear anklets. Me thinks they’re the coolest ever!

*high-fives self* 😁

Thank you for reading. 😘

Love and a lil’ more,

Moji

    Aunty Moji Chair lady(lol) I love the whole concept.Still a bit puzzled though, Did you actually carry a chair from your house to the streets?
    Welcome to the choker gang..Big lover of the boyfriend shirt trend, never actually tried it yet. Love everything about this look from the way you style your hair to the whole outfit. Puhlease, give your edges a break oh, no more braids.

      Lol. Thanks Aunty Praise 😝. Yes I carried the chair o. You need to have seen the way my neighbors were looking at me.
      Lol @Choker gang. I know you are the Chairlady of choker wearers. 😉
      As for braids, wish I could listen to my edges’ plea but I can’t, sorry babies 😥. Braids are just so affordable and low-maintenance; what’s not to love?
      Thanks for your comment hun 😘😘😘

    ahh! an Ibrahim will be the best thing that can happen to me right now. And carrying that chair outside was crazy..lmao.. the crazy things we do for fashion.
    I totally love the outfit. We ladies slay men outfit better but they’ll never agree.
    I low key admire girls with ankle ring but the fear of what my family people and another people will say wouldn’t let me..I just can’t deal abeg!

      Lol. My Ibrahim and I are so joined at the hip mehn….so tay dude has started charging me anyhow sef.
      Hehehe @ the chair. My photographer suggested it and I was like, oya now! Yaaaaasss to slaying men’s clothes more! Sometimes I feel sorry for them that they cant wear our clothes. 😀
      I knowww @ ankle ring, I used to have the same fear but as I just found a way to stop caring jare. Mine’s even worse ’cause I have three piercings each on both ears. I just shrug at people who assume I must be irresponsible as a result.
      Thanks for your kind comment Tega! 😘😘 Hope to see you around more 😀😉.

    Firstly where did you get the chair , I can’t imagine you carrying it out of your house to the street lol.
    Love the entire look and setup , the purse is too cute you can’t demote it to makeup purse at all.
    I’m a fan of anklets, wore them at one point till people started giving me shit for it, a lecturer seized it so I just mellowed on it.

      Babe! I carried the chair out of my house oh. It’s not easy to be a chairlady! Lol.😂
      Thanks for making a case for the purse. It shall no longer be demoted 😀😘.
      Lecturer seized your anklet??? 😬 I know the feeling though, some lecturers can be very annoying. I remember one lecturer back in school who refused to mark my assignment simply because my hair was in short dreadlocks. Had to go tie a scarf oh!
