1. The Heat

    Heat

    The heat has me losing my head…I am wishing I could be in a bikini permanently. Since that is not possible, the floaty dresses in my closet have been working overtime to get through the summer highs. I am also loving sparse jewelry because I can’t stand the feel of anything stuck to my sweaty skin.


     
  2. I was randomly looking through Bella Naija and I saw these pictures. I just had to share because I like the skirts so much. These are by Thula Sindi. Of course, photos courtesy of Bella Naija.

     

  3. L’Espace Look Book

    I have spent a lot of time lamenting the fact that I am getting bored with fashion lately. My fashion apathy comes in two strands. There is the general strand where I just don’t feel any connection to fashion in general. I look at red carpet pictures and I am bored. Everybody seems to have forgotten to bring the drama, the life and the creativity to the table.

    The second strand of fashion relates in particular to Nigerian fashion scene. I look at look books and I realise just from photos that the designers have not yet grasped the concept of fit and quality. I know fashion industry in NIgeria is nascent. I hope it keeps growing and maturing. 

    My prayer that it grows is why I am able to see the beauty in things like the L’Espace Lookbook for 2013. I like what they have done because it looks professional. It also has a clear sense of cohesiveness and concept. You can check out the rest of the images on Bella Naija here.

  4. Pink Time

    Presentation Time

    Pink is not something I buy often simply because I am not into the girly look. However, I got a pink jacket from H&M for $7.50 during sales on Saturday that I am pairing with my ankle length black jeans from H&M and my ribbon-print pussy-bow blouse from my clothing label House 38. The jacket, slightly cropped with off-center zipper, looked good and the pice was right, so now I can do a pink look.

     

  5. Hello Spring!

    It is such good fun dressing up now that the snow has gone and the sun is making a regular appearance here in Boston. I am loving the variety of colors that I am seeing in the stores. For this outfit, I wanted to create something that would work well in the outfit and for a date night as well. For the daytime, you could add a tote to carry extra stuff.

    I saw a Stella McCartney Lace look and I was inspired to create it a lower price point. I really liked how the blouse and trousers matched so I tried to keep that look my keeping with a white palette for the skirt and blouse. I have added a flash of color with the rich look of the jewelry.
     
  7. Lust of the Day- I love her outfit. I am really loving the lacy look at the moment and this Stella McCartney look is amazing. Look out for a set inspired by it soon.
