So sorry for being so distant and not updating regularly. Living and working in Lagos with the crappy internet cant take its toll on a girl.
You know one of those times when you’re feeling so
overwhelmed with stuff and you update your bb status with text in that order.
Anyway sometime ago i did that and I can’t remember what exactly I wrote but there was one response from my very sarcastic and blunt
“Sweetheart do you have to deal with two divorces and three
kids to provide for? I don’t think so. Kindly buck up my friend”I was very silent and couldn’t even respond.
At the end of the day, everyone has their own
demons and no one has it all. Life is
short and our problems are all very relative. If you complain about how bad
your car is, the next person is just trying to buy a Tokunbo and another doesn't even have the money to take cabs.
You can’t pay your rent, someone else can’t even get a job.
Thank God for where you are and keep dreaming and seeing
yourself where you want to be. I've heard a lot of grace to grass miracles and
I know for sure nothing is unattainable.
On to lighter stuff… I still can’t get over the last minute
cancellation of Arise Magazine Fashion week AMFW last month. I mean… for me fashion week is
basically a chill out fun period (with a teeny bit of work) and I was really looking forward to it.
Anyway, in the spirit of fashion weeks here are some of the photos from MTNLFDW
from October last year which I never shared. Lol.
There were so many amazing pieces on the runway which have since then made their way to print in terms via high fashion editorials and trend reports, red-carpets, and the sidewalk. I personally had a few favourites and in no particular order
AGU (drama that i'm loving. The shoulder detail is fabulous)
I absolutely love this, the newspaper print and vendor's horn. so brilliant
BRIDGET AWOSIKA (If there was ever a thing as too much talent....)
EJIRO AMOS TAFIRI
I found the grafitti print pants and upside-down worded tees at KIKI KAMANU so very fresh!
MAI ATAFO's summer wedding dress. J'adore!
Reminds me of Carrie's Vera Wang wedding dress from Sex and the City 1. The first wedding with Mr Big that never happened
REBAHIA (I couldn't pick one. loved both)
REPUBLIC OF FOREIGNER
Loved the Maasai inspired jewellery at SUNNY ROSE
Here's me on all four days. My style over the past few years has drifted towards very functional and easy seeing as i'm always on the move but still feminine and very chic of course lol.
pair of high heels transforms a simple plain white tee and jeans. This aso-oke
waist coat by Buttons Couture was the star of this look.
the trendy route in a Republic of Foreigner baroque print tee
and tie-waist pyjama pants
velvet polka dot, colour and stripes....I love love the unusual combo of
Blouse and skirt both by Rebahia
last day was spent in a turquoise twist dress from Grey. I'm here with Stylist and Creative Director of Aimas Tayo Shonekan
With designer Lanre Da Silva Ajayi of LDA. I think we were talking about pieces for a Genevieve magazine cover shoot. Her collection was amazing
