PRINT SUIT + THE KENNETH IZE LAUNCH

Hi ya, 

So I promised to post the other half of my print outfit. I can't help it guys it was 6 yards of beauty.

I wore it on Easter Monday to the Kenneth Ize ss14 'son soufflé' launch at the very artsy, concept store Stranger in Lekki phase one Lagos.



The vibe when you get to stranger is like a natural pull. The general aesthetic is dark, edgy but hippie and almost pedestrian at the same time so you're relaxed but also captivated by the mix of art and fashion around you. 

All this comes majorly from the decor, the roll call of designers represented, the crowd which you encounter and then the stranger team. I can't even complain. It's a breath of fresh air.

One of the most interesting things about going to events is the different people you get to interact with and bumping into folks you haven't seen in a while. Speaking of meeting new people, I got to gist a little with Chigul. I'm sure everyone knows who she is. She makes the funniest videos on Instagram @theonlychigul

I had bumped into Bez's manager Enyi Omeruah, we met a few times when I styled Bez for a couple of Globacom ads. Anyway we got talking about stuff and he said his sister was coming. When she arrived, he goes casually "meet my sister she's a comedienne "and I'm like damn right she is!  I know her way back from her bbm voice notes. She was so sweet and gracious and I enjoyed every minute of our convo. Chigul if you ever get to read this. Kisses!

Chigul, Enyi and I 


There is a clearer photo of us three but I'm not posting it cos I didn't like my face in the photo. Yeah aren't we all vain like that? Lol

Managed to take this quick photos before waltzing out. Couldn't stay till the end as I had to be up early the next day. You can check Stranger's Instagram to see more photos. @strangerlagos

EMMA STONE FOR VOGUE US MAY ISSUE



Timeless like most well done covers. Love the 70s vibe going on however I can't ignore the fact that for a spring issue, it is bland Nothing says spring here not the hair, make up or the outfit but I guess it's Vogue and our pope can do no wrong. Right?

HAPPY EASTER!

If you're in Lagos do you agree that this has to be the coolest (literally) Easter Sunday ever? What with the much needed rain to reduce the heat on a sister's brain.  

Hope you've utilized this little break and managed to have some fun or chill out with loved ones. Speaking of loved ones, my mum gave me this fabric on my bday last year but I had been too busy to decide what I wanted to do with it. I finally took it to designer Ella 1278 so she could figure out something for me. She came up with two outfits out of this fabric. I plan to wear the other soon maybe tomorrow even.

I have to confess though, I was a little wary of this fabric. I thought it was a little sweet. I'm not Mary Poppins so I liked that the purple doused the sweetness a little. Another factor was the horizontal pattern I thought it'd make me look fat. Lol. Ok I agree...I can complain. Honestly I think I might be the most difficult person to style. I'm way too finicky for my own good.





Ps- Grey's anatomy heads..Yo!! What just happened?? Cristina didn't win the Harper Avery? I feel like we all need to go into mourning. This is a blow. We just got hit.

Blanck Magazine- Issue 2 'The freedom issue’.

Hi guys,

With the Easter holiday in full swing...here's some fashion to be inspired by. I was so glad to receive this in my inbox. I love when magazines tackle issues that most would otherwise deem too 'political' to get involved with. More so when it is done so tastefully and beautiful.

Can you tell how itchy I am to share?  Enjoy.


The new establishment, upstart digital magazine seized cyberspace when its debut issue came into public consciousness with the delectable TV presenter Eku Edewor on its cover.

Its second issue has now hit digital stands everywhere and is every bit as sensational as the first if not more than- considering the issue it tackles.

Chock full of celebrity star wattage in persons of Hollywood star, Gbenga Akinnagbe, UK-based Nigerian singer, Lola Rae, Model and actor, Alex Ekubo, BBC presenter and Entrepreneur Amal Fashanu, satirist and newly-minted BBC media sensation, Ikenna Azuike, up and coming singer, Ayo Awosika and Multi- talented, Toni Tones, this edition has been tagged the 'Freedom Issue' 

What does freedom mean to you? This question was the core ingredient from which the issue was produced. 

The quest for freedom, according to BLANCK is one that is endless.

The magazine investigated this elusive ideal through the lens of avant-garde editorials, excellent styling, photography and socially conscious profiles and interviews.

BLANCK magazine is a publication with a conscience, our aim is to celebrate topical issues through fashion. BLANCK is a quarterly and is available at www.blanckdigital.com

ROCKING AIMAS

Hey guys,

Few weeks ago I was on tv shooting the pilot for a new tv show. Can't say much about it now except that I'm on a panel. 

I'll keep you posted on this. However I got to wear this vintage inspired high waist shorts and blouse off the beat collection from AIMAS. I love the prints. If you look closely you can see a traditional, calabash shaped musical instrument. I like when we tap into our originality like this. Thank you to Aimas for letting me rock this.

SUNDAY PRINTS

Hi guys,

How's your Monday so far?

Wore my first Oleku/ revamped iro and buba to mass yesterday. To be honest, I was a little skeptical about this trend because I didn't want to look like a clone but I guess these days it's like owning a pair of jeans; every girl has one plus I really dig the print, and the chiffon fabric makes it very easy breezy.

     Sorry my shoes got cut off. Mum took the photo.lol I'm wearing the shoes from this post
