They say when you find something you like, you should get lots and lots of them, perhaps in different colors? That would be smart.
A few of us got together to see what items we owned that deserved this special honor and came up with these:
- The Unwind Slip Ons by Champion are the perfect pair to unwind in everyday while looking cute at it. It’s cushiony soft insoles make them easy to stand or walk in for very long. I love them and after using the first pair for a week I got another pair! One for running errands and sports and the other for when I need to turn my athleisure look on! The top is soft and dries quickly if for any reason they get wet.
I haven’t seen them in any other color besides the basic black and white but it also means that they go with any color outfit!

2. I’m in love with the old Ankara classics – the Jumping Horse, The Yellow/Red Star, electric bulb etc. They are sold between N8,000 – N25,000 and above asking. Thanks to Hi-target whch is a Chinese brand, you can get these prints at N2,000 to N2,500, asking.
What we now call Ankara may not have originated in African but we’ve owned it throught and through and anytime I go fabric shopping, There’s at least one design that has to go home with me.

3. I’m always either on my feet all day or sitting in front of the computer at work, and for both, my Merrell Moc Shoes are perfect! I slip them on and go! These shoes have got a comfortable lace-free design and a silky-smooth stretch collar for easy on-off. The breathable mesh liner is treated to reduce odor, its got a soft light synthetic upper,it’s super stable and comfy.

4. My J. Crew sleeveless V neck Ponte shell top is the one! Made of cotton so it’s breatheable, I have white and the black too. Standard fit and is snug and comfortable, also quite flattering for my figure.
It’s a perfect match for me because I’m such a mimimalist who mostly likes clean cuts and fit, so it’s what I need for a dressy and casual look. The white is delicate for obvious reasons but the black, I do not spare. I bought my first at the LaCotierge store here in Abuja and haven’t looked back since….did I mention that they flatter my figure so well?
