Lady In Red

This is my first official post in 2012… 🙂

Hope everyone had a lovely holiday and the new year started off on a good note. I am still enjoying my visit here in Nigeria. It is a full house here because most family members from Canada and London are all in town; this means that the house is never dull. My husband’s 20months old niece Maya is definitely entertaining everyone with her few words 🙂

For this outfit, I decided to keep the accessories minimal. One thing some people fail to do is knowing when to go loud with accessories and when to keep it at a minimum.

On another note, being in Nigeria and driving through developed and undeveloped areas has brought a lot of happy & sad moments. One of the days that I was out with a friend, I came across this area seeing some overworked and malnourished kids brought tears to my eyes. I love that country, but I believe that a lot needs to be done and I plan in doing my own share; but it not what I can do alone. Lets make a difference please!

My husband & I! 😉 When I told him that I was going to post the picture above, his response was, “Wow! I am making another debut on Jadore.” He is a big joke star. LOL!

Have a wonderful week!

    what a dress you have their my friend – Love it! That would look much of a high fashion if you pair it with lace ups ankle boots or even short booties. Though all in all you have that couture of a fine class and taste in fashion.
