Always Have Two Lovers

You didn’t hear from me last Friday and didn’t even bother to check up on me.

Is that how we roll now?

It’s not fair o. I’m still your person.

Anyways, I know you have your personal issues so I won’t dwell on that.

I came with gist today.

It’s about my experience dating two guys.

And if you read between the lines, you’ll pick the style lesson for today.

Why do you think people double-date?

The most popular reason is the adage of not putting their eggs in one basket.

And that was what inspired my decision to date two men.

No, none of them promised me marriage.

I was way younger then.

I happened to have feelings for both of them and since I wasn’t ready to drop any of them, I decided to keep them both.

But guess what happened…

No, don’t guess.

I just changed my mind about sharing that story so I’ll just go straight ahead to give you today’s style lesson:

If you want to turn up peng to anywhere you’ve planned, always have two lovers.

Yeah, baby. I said what I said.

Always double-date.

Don’t arch your brows at me yet.

Let me explain.

By lover, I don’t mean a boyfriend or a girlfriend.

I mean two options.

The idea of not putting all your eggs in one basket doesn’t apply for relationship matters alone.

In fact, when it comes to relationships, I don’t buy that idea.

I believe if you’re in love with someone, that person deserves to have your all. And if breakfast comes, cry, crewed, crode, as you want Ria.

You’ll eventually move on.

But you see fashion…

Always have two (or more) options.

That’s the kind of lover I mean. 

These “lovers” could be two tailors, two dresses, two pairs of trousers, two shoes, two shirts, two necklaces, two wristwatches, etc.

Because when one fucks up, the other will be there to cover up for you.

Early this year I attended a wedding.

I had only one “lover” for that wedding.

All my mind, I thought the dress was superb until I wore it in front of two people at different times and they told me the dress looked faded.

I didn’t know what to do. 

And just before then, I had gone fabric shopping for Ria Kosher.

So, immediately I realized my only option was about to disappoint me, I engaged my team and we began working to make another dress for me.

Luckily, they loved the design and even told me not to wear any other thing but the dress.

I wasn’t sure they’d deliver in two days even as they had promised me. So, I still looked for another dress.

(JSYK, All my dresses for special occasions are Ria Kosher’s).

My team delivered and I had to pick the dress over the other option I had.

Imagine I had hoped on the first dress and relaxed until the day for the wedding came.

Just imagine how the writer who knows how to do fashion would have fallen her hands.

That’s why I’m saying…

Always have two (or more) options when dressing up for special occasions, Ria.

In fact, double-date.

That’s how we roll in this game of fashion and style.

Because even your most trusted tailor/cloth may disappoint you when you least expect.
