Hey darlings, hope you all are having a sizzling week. This month started on a good note for me. If you noticed, I haven’t been quite active on the blog and that’s because of a project I have been working on. Before I talk about the project, let me tell you something about me.

I have done quite a lot of businesses around fashion and modeling in the past. But today, I want to talk about the fashion part. In 2011, when I did my first fashion show (bet you didn’t know that), I made quite a number of tees to go on the runway. It was lovely and people actually loved the texts and smileys that were printed on the tees. I loved it too but I could not continue because of funds. As a student, I wasn’t really buoyant to carry out projects.

In 2013, while I waited to be posted for NYSC, I decided to go back into clothing. Funny enough, I wasn’t one of the stylish girls on campus because I had this habit of investing my money into projects . My pocket money always went into ideas I came up with. So, I decided to go to Aba with Ada, (feel the rhymes?) my friend.

I borrowed some money from a friend who made me sign some percentage stuff and paying him back ( e pain me sha but I’m grateful to him because I learnt how to handle money. That was my first lesson!) I got the clothes back to school (Awka) and I sold them. Not all though. But that period was a life changer for me. I had to learn the art of selling. I knew my feeding depended on every sale made so it was no joke.

I equally had to get some shirts from a friend to sell. It was some shirts for guys and I had a certain percentage from every sale I made. It went quite well because I was selling to guys and you know they have no wahala.

At some point, my clothe business started failing. I made alot of expenses and re-investing was an issue. Thank goodness I was keeping up with the interest. I didn’t want to disappoint. I couldn’t pay all but the money I gave him plus the interest covered his money and more.

That was how I carried all my Aba clothes to Lagos and gave all my friends and family members. I wasn’t happy but it had to happen. It was a learning process.

Long story right? That was actually a summary. I didn’t go ahead to say how I suffered and what some ladies did to me. That was equally how I started going low key. Lol. Have you ever had a struggle in business and you had to pause or stop? Tell me about it in the comment section.

Well, ever since, I have dreamed of having my own clothe line. I love tees alot. Easy. Comfortable. Beautiful. Stylish. Can be worn with anything. I can go on and on. I have been on the drawing board for all this and I am glad to inform you that OLLIE STYLE TEES is now a dream come true!

Yellow Crazy Tee

There was a time in my life I was just clueless about what to do. I always felt life was unfair to me. I was close to thinking it was a spiritual problem. But here, I am testifying. Talk to God and let him help you. Hand your plans to him. Proverbs 16:1,3. Don’t forget to always update your knowledge and network alot. Is it not cool to know that I am smiling to the bank already? (chilling smile)

To see photos of these tees, kindly follow us on instagram @olliestyletees and buy some wonderful feeling you can wear always! There is always something for you. You could also win one of our shirts. So get ready for some spirit uplifting!
