Beauty In Lagos

First for all things Beauty, in Lagos!

Now, please believe, it KILLS me to write this post, because I'd much rather prefer this was kept a secret. The more people that know, the fewer my chances of getting anything. *sulk*

Elsie Vintage is an online vintage blog-store that holds once a month, and it is the brainchild of fellow Nigerian-blogger Onyinye Fafi Obi. OMG! I feel like shedding a tear while I type this up...

Anyway, she sells some awesome vintage pieces and I am pretty sure quite a few GREEDY LADIES AGREE, BECAUSE WHEN I PARTICIPATED IN MY FIRST BLOG SALE NOTHING I WANTED WAS AVAILABLE.... YES I AM YELLING. I am still quite salty from my first experience. Sale started at 12pm, I sent my email at 12.05pm, the first 2pieces I picked were ALREADY SOLD.... *aaannnd breathe*

Price: N3000
3rd email sent, here's what I selected. And it was available!

Here's how I styled it. I love it! Wore this to church on Christmas Day

Price: N2500

This is the second item I got (just the shorts). I've worn it, but just with a white tank top. Wore it Christmas Eve to run errands, so wasn't anything special. It's a pair of high waisted flared shorts. What I love about it is at first glance you'd thing it was a skirt, because of the way it flares! LOVE! When I style it properly I'll be sure to post a picture :)

The Next Sale is Scheduled for the 28th of January, 2012! And I have a secret plan on how I am going to get the items I want. *muahahahahaha!!* (Supposed to be saving up for my birthday festivities, but.... Y.O.L.O!!)

The pieces and items are only revealed once the sale goes live, and I think the idea is genius. Nothing like a bit of secrecy to drive shopaholics mad in anticipation. They also sell accessories. The price range is from N500-N4000. Yup, most expensive item in any sale is N4000 (£16).
