ONCE UPON A TIME

Seeing the words distressed and denim side by side in a sentence never would have triggered the thought of a glamorous dress, high-low bustier and definitely not floral prints. But somehow, this couture piece embodies all three elements in perfect proportions.

On sighting this piece at the Rent Frock Repeat showroom, I grew nostalgic as I remembered a time when all I wanted to be was a different Disney princess every other week.

Are things much different now? I don’t think so. I still crave for a heart as pure as Snow White’s, as patient as Cinderella’s, as brave as Mulan’s, as independent as Jasmine’s, as curious as Ariel’s & as determined and optimistic as Tiana’s.

“Once upon a time, all our cherished dreams began with, once upon a time”

  • Lately, I’ve been lacing my personal pep talks with a hint of arrogance, it has become necessary for the days my well of motivation dries out #notsorry 💫 {P.S Instagram actually tried it 😒}

  • Today, I realised that I’ve been juggling a full time job and a side hustle effectively for the past 7 months. I’m usually my biggest critic and never one to pause and appreciate all my victories, instead I’m always wondering “what’s the next thing I can do?” But today I’m giving myself a pat on the back for the sleepless nights, fruitless trips and unanswered proposals because guess what? I’m constantly pushing and putting in effort towards my goals & like @fisayolonge said, “While I wait, I will not fear” 😊 #celebratingeverything | 📸: @samuelobi
