Not Mandatory But Freaking Good: My Blog Girl Crush Part III
Fabiola of Diary of a Third World Fashionista
ThirdWorldFashionista.com is a blog I stumbled upon while I was procrastinating like a champ. I don't frequent lots of style blogs because I usually can't afford the clothes the girls are wearing but what's so amazingly awesome about Fabi is the fact that she sews most of the clothes she wears.
And they look fantastic.
Besides her boss skills behind a sewing machine, I find it comforting to read about another girl's struggles living in a third-world country.
Now let me make something clear: there are parts of Lagos that are like any other city in the states. People who live in Lekki, Victoria Island, things people take for granted until it's no longer available.
But I live in Alagbado.
We don't have those fun things in the boondocks and it can be a bit boring on my side of town. But Fabi, who lives in Honduras, would tell me to dress up, head to the market and have an impromptu photoshoot among the bootleg DVD stand.
