Hell no, I won’t forget what happened to me last weekend during an important person*s burial. From my mode of dressing to makeup to total package were all on a very high zero level (I don’t know if there’s any English like that but pardon me to use it). Lol On no account should you attend any party looking like all isn’t truly well with you. You either stay in your house to mourn your moment or turnup like *oh my gosh no condition is permanent*
There was a big burial last weekend and I was so disappointed in myself that I didn’t represent what I have been preaching about being at your best at all times because you never can tell who’s observing and making positive moves on your behalf
Please if you are a party rocker, ensure to turn up like the name you bear *Party Rocker* don’t be too busy to-do the right thing else, you get messed up
I can see you are moving your eyes like *Who’s a party rocker* not too worry as I will define it according to my own understanding and experience below. Wink A party rocker is he or she who turns up at an event like his or her life of surviving depends on it. Na here I go die put kinda soul
The ones that get Aso-Ebi very early just to be on point and avoid stories that touch from stylist and the rest of his or her squad
He or she who graces event looking all handsome or beautiful more than celebrants. It’s not their party ooo but they have to be noticed
Has glam squad from the stylist to the makeup artiste and any other vital things they need just to look like the celebrants. Today na today kinda guest
Marks register at every high, mighty and low party just to make a heavy appearance and get called upon for greeting while walking majestically to their seats. They ‘re party thieves meaning once they walk in people who do not know the celebrant will be like *Ahan is that the celebrant?
Attends party five to six hours later than scheduled time you know why? Because experience and research have shown that the mighty and money spenders would have been married to their chairs and probably be analysing who’s finer, sexier, taller, hotter and the rest. Hahahahahhahahah
Some of them have one or two mission/s which is or are best known to them. They are always richer than celebrant when ready to leave for home as spenders focus more on such souls . Hahahahahah awon pawòpawò (meaning money earners)
And finally, we also have the classy and elegant ones who do not care about what you think about them. They walk in like they can’t drink garri with groundnut and also, greet in 360 degrees way like the queen and classy girls that they are. Those ones only come to get you talking, don’t care about how their presence shock you and jet out some minutes after. Whew
Please dont forget all i listed are my own definition plus there are still more though. These definitions do not apply to everyone but few, choose your category wisely and biko don’t ask me how I got to know all these as we are all in this business together but our intentions are different. Laughing
So now, can you imagine someone with such high expectations attending a high class party looking like a hungry or stranded bird? Very disappointing, annoying and brand devaluing
Now back to the original story. I had a coverage on the same day with the burial and don’t forget i just got back from Osun State to honor His Excellency Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola as the Most Outstanding/Creative Governor of the year award so, I wasn’t really settled but needed to satisfy the people involved in both events
I rushed home to wear the branded tee-shirt made for the coverage and at the same time took a dress hoping to change and head to the burial
Can you remember I warned against calling stylist or makeup artiste on the day of the event in the last edition? Boom, I called my makeup artiste and I heard *awwwww madam are you back ni? I thought you are still in Osun State and I am currently in Ota to worship God and attend choir practise*
I called my second makeup artiste and she said *awwww I just put to bed So, I am resting* immediately my eyes went dim because I knew my God given face won’t be touched for these two events but will attend just the way God created my face. Sad and heartbroken
So many thoughts running through my mind while I was driving and tired. The worse part was that, I didn’t carry my personal makeup kit to touch my face myself. Gosh
Arrived at the venue pretty late. I tried to hide my face but how possible is that when I would be doing live Instagram feed, blog about the event and then take pictures. Oh no oh no I kept saying but summoned the courage to hit the stage to let everyone knows that Bodex Media is in the building.
Immediately I greeted the organizer she said *you you you oga òooo and walked away*. That very moment I knew the whole day won’t be as interesting as it should but kept consoling myself for atleast making it
As if that wasn’t enough, I carried my unprofessional outfit to an elderly man’s burial which was the second event. Driving to the venue, I saw beautiful women on gele and Aso-Ebi made into different attractive and stylish styles
I started contemplating wether to even step out of the car or just go home. The other part of me said *You are here already darling so, why not go say hi and leave* Well I listened to that part of me and stepped out of the car but, I wished I never listened to that fake part of me when I am the owner of myself. Hisssss
Now out of the car and searching for omo oloku (meaning child of the dead). While searching for her, you could tell everyone thought I came to the wrong party. Smiling and crying
I managed to look ahead of the guests and was still searching and finally spotted her. Now the worse happened. After I walked up to her and I said *sorry about your father* she looked at me from head to toe and said *Bodex why are you looking like this and she walked away. Chai, shame wey catch me is still traveling
Wait a minute, Are you trying to blame her like why did she behave like that? Oh please, do not blame her as she was 1000% right for walking out on such a miserable guest when every living soul present was fabulously dressed with who’s who in the industry.
You can’t be eating your cake and at the same time still keep the exact quantity. Ko le werk and ko possible
How can you be claiming the queen of lifestyle and showed up at such event with two left legs?
How can you claim to know so much about party goers and you did that?
How can you say you don’t go to parties looking less but attended a particular one looking like an abadoned made?
How can you analyse and abuse others who do such an annoying act and now a victim?
How can a presenter,blogger or even red carpet host do that?
Different *how can you* *how can you* were just running through my mind but the damage was already done irrespective of the circumstances
If you get into such shoes like me, please do not attend. It’s better to be absent than present with stigma that will last you for a life time.
Attending parties or anything that has to do with people gathering without appropriate outfits,diminish your personality and do not speak well about you to people who look up to you, or even the crowd who want to feed their eyes with trending outfits and persons
Major problem we have is refusing to accept our unprofessional act personally before going public. If you don’t like your outfit or your look in the mirrior how on earth would anyone like you?
If your mind is telling you *aunty this look no go fly* why would you want compliment from another person? If what’s good for goose is also good for gander, why would you want gander to overlook your flaws because you are goose?
Do not take your look for granted and do not expect anyone to understand your situation no matter how terrible it is to you. Always balance your personality with happenings and do accordingly
You don’t need to go all expensive if you can’t afford it. Do what you need to do even when no-one is watching you. Be simple and be classy.
Mistakes can actually be avoided but, we always want people to accept us the way we are but really, how are we? Don’t give excuses for things your mirrior warned you about rather take responsibility for your shortcomings, learn and make use of the lessons
Sharing my latest experience is for you to have a clearer understanding of lifestyle, so you can learn now and not wait for your turn as you might not be lucky to still be at the party/event/gathering because they might show you the door. Wink
Life is too short to live it miserably as Lifestyle to me means how you stylishly live your life. So now tell me, how have you been living your life?
See you next week
