The Tutu/Tulle Skirt

Sometime early last year,  I saw someone in a tutu skirt paired with a lace top and high heels, and my first thought was “ha ha, how can this agbaya turn a ballerina outfit into a fashion statement when you are not  Sarah Jessica Parker in sex and the city ” then I did a double take to really look at her, and I was like “well,  it looks good sha, just a bit puffy”

Little did I know that the Tutu skirt actually made its debut as a street wear in 1984 when Madonna rocked a white Tutu Skirt for her performance at the MTV Music Awards. Immediately after that show, girls all around the world jumped on the tutu train, and like every other trend, it soon fizzled out before the 90’s.

In spring 2014 and 2015, the trend actually peeped into the season, but this year it came into the season with full force

I remember a couple of months ago when I wore a Tutu skirt (the not so puffy one – i can’t still get myself to wear that big one yet with my hips!) on a night out with the hubby, he looked at me and said “hmmmm,you women eh!  oh well what do I know about fashion” I knew right there and then I was going to get a lot of heads turning , more out of curiosity than admiration or disdain.



When we got to Federal Palace Hotel for “the night a Kazbah” everyone who walked past us and had seen my back view turned around to check out what the front of my outfit looked like, and when I say everyone, I mean men both men and women. (if I knew it was going to get me that much attention, I probably would have worn that skirt sooner,lol)

Now that the tutu skirt is here to stay, I thought to share with you three different ways you can rock your Tutu skirt.


If you don’t own one already, don’t worry, House of Ravissant has got you! Click here and here to purchase.


Wear it with a Plain/Crop/Lace top




For a Retro chic look, wear it with a denim/leather jacket and camisole.




Want to feel like a princess, at dinner, the red carpet or even as a wedding guest, try out the long tutu skirt with a plain top and you sure can add a bow for effect!



But I really must say, my favourite look of all time is Rihanna in the Tutu dress below. Love the way the tutu flails out under the corset, and judging from the looks from New York fashion week 2016, we will be seeing loads of corsets in 2017.



So what are your thoughts about the Tutu skirts, do you think its an overkill or a trend you will like to try.

Looking forward to reading from you in the comment section below.

Get Ready With Me – Ladyprenuer Interview

Hi Guys,

As we gear up for our first Ladypreneur Video on Monday, I decided to share one of my YouTube videos.

Those of you who know me personally know that I always record a lot of random videos, and on this day I had recorded several short clips and when I posted the last picture on this video on Instagram, it got the highest number of likes (63likes as at today). You see, I don’t really get that much likes on the Instagram page @houseofravissant so 63likes is a big deal (by now, I hope you have picked up on me hinting that you should go like pictures on my  page lol) . Anyways, I decided to share the video of me getting ready for that day, plus it was my first shot at attempting to edit a video. You won’t believe I did everything on my phone, from video recording, to editing and posting on YouTube. Most of these things are actually easier than you think; you just have to give it a shot.


And for those of you who asked, yes my outfit is from House of Ravissant, you can check it out on the homepage.


Will you like to see more get ready with me videos, behind the scenes of the interviews and bloopers? Let me know in the comment section below. Remember to subscribe to the blog so you can get first hand updates.

TGIF and have a lovely weekend.

I have always loved the idea of putting pen to paper to express my thoughts, but with a full time job, a business to run, kids to raise and a hubby to wife,…

Did someone say excuses, excuses and more excuses?

I decided to build a website for my retail business, and the thought occurred to me to add a blog to the website.

As a child, I loved reading, I always had my head buried in one book or the other and it’s sad to see the reading culture in Nigeria dying. I visit different blogs daily and see entertaining and enlightening articles and news but after reading, the first ten comments are from people complaining about the length of the article.


So here I am, lounging on a couch, listening to the reggae version of Locked up by Adam Levine and wondering, do I really want to blog and can I make that commitment without flaking after just a couple of articles? To make this decision, I decided to try an old trick. I flipped a coin (finding the coin itself is a story for another day). Before the coin landed, I silently prayed and wished for it to land head first, so here I am!

The whole idea is to bring you some fun reads, motivational, fashion, lifestyle posts and lots of vlogs. If you thought this was going to be a strictly fashion and style blog, am glad to disappoint you.

I will love to hear from you in the comment section below about what else you will like me to blog about, please share and let’s have some fun!
