 Latasha is wearing a modern style iro and buba by Ejiro Amos Tafiri and shoes from mizzybshoeonline
 

Odun's summery yellow dress is from GREY and her shoes are from mizzybshoesonline.com

The girls also went off set to cover the YNaija black ball over the christmas holiday.
Latasha's dress is by a Marvee a young designer i just discovered a few months ago. She is amazing. More on her soon.
 


 Hauwa guest presented and attended the ball as well. She wears Alali Boutique high waist skirt and cropped blouse underneath her blazer.

GOING SHORT

So i've been sort of stuck in a long, centre part hairstyle rut for sometime. If you take a look at my past photos....lol.  I use the word 'stuck' loosely though because to be honest, the style is very convenient. You cant pack it in a ponytail for a more formal look, straighten it out and let it fall for a casual look or curl it up for a glam outing.

Anyway, i decided to step out of my box for a little while and went for a Rosemary's Baby pixie cut which i have to confess, i really liked. I remember people seeing me and just going woah! it was fun to watch their shocked faces lol




I had the hair on for about 3wks but unfortunately it was such a busy period and i didnt get to take much photos.

Thanks for stopping by. xx

IN LOVE WITH BAROQUE

Maybe it's the ornamental feel or the vintage vibe... i dont know.. but i seem to be naturaly drawn to to baroque prints. For now i seem to be keeping to the darker more demure tones

Its funny how fashion really never changes though,. If you feel this print is familiar, you're not wrong. As i type, i'm wearing a burgundy baroque print blouse that belonged to my my mum yearssss ago. If you look the trend up, you'll find it splashed on most vintage Versace designs. Totally Fab.



Wore this skirt to work the other day. It's from a high street brand i can't really recollect at the moment.


and this here, (blouse and pants) is from Republic of Foreigner, way back from when i wore it to their show at fashion week (MTNLFDW) late last year.

Speaking of fashion week, i should share photos of my outfits. will do so soon.xx

ps- i take most of my photos with my blackberry camera so pls kindly excuse the quality :)

BIDDY'S MONDO

Hi Guys,

Just wanted to introduce you all to my friend Bidemi Fasanya's store Biddy's Mondo. I did a post on the store sometime ago at a Le Petite Marche LPM event here

Its funny i remember back in school another friend and I loved to go to her room just to chill around loads of shoes and clothing. I'm not surprised after her MBA in the UK, she decided to run a clothing retail brand. She's been doing that since i knew her though she always had one hot bargain or the other.

I think she's an amazing shopper and is always in tune with the latest trends as welll as making sure to balance her stock with classic and timeless pieces all mostly from UK brands.

However, what i love most about the store is that the items are 'very affordable'. Not like all those Lagos boutiques that will want to cut your head with their ridiculous prices.

See her contact details at the end of this post

Speaking of Lagos, she delivers everywhere in Lagos and outside Lagos as well. She's also a regular at most of the shopping events in Lagos so when next you go for LPM or Fusion pls ask around for her stall.

Here shoes start from about N3500 and blouses start from about N3500-4000 upwards.

There are loads of stuff available but here are a few photos. Enjoy

STYLING THE GLAMSQUAD GIRLS

Hi ya,
Hope your year is off to a good start. I cant thank God enough for sustaining me thus far and for that holiday of life. That 1 week + made all the difference. Can you believe it's the 19th already? The year seems to be flying.


Just wanted to share some good news with y’all. Some of you may have heard of the TV show Glamsquad being produced by Remi Diagbare of Tegali Communications which airs on silverbird 5pm on Sundays. Well.. yours truly is the official stylist.

The presenters are Latasha Ngwube an award winning beauty, fashion, social and lifestyle writer. She is currently a contributing editor at Vanguard’s Allure Magazine and handles the PR of some select brands.

Odun Ogunbiyi is the fashion editor at TW Magazine as well as a blogger and PR specialist.

Megha Joshi a.k.a Ms Pearl of Wisdom is a fictional character with a weekly column in Sunday’s Vanguard Allure who's famous for her totally unsympathetic advice to her readers problems.
Megha is an entrepreneur, PR whiz kid, international socialite, writer and style lover.

Wunika Mukan
Wunika Mukan is a well known Project Manager and was very instrumental restoring the Miss Nigeria Competition to once again becoming one the most sought after beauty competitions in the country.

The show is a fashion jury type show. It’s really exciting. I’ve gotten all kinds of feedback and lets just say... well not everyonelikes to have their fashion choices dissected on tv even I have to be more careful in my choice of outfits when I step out. The girls are as frank as can be. I would be redfaced for days if i'm ever being slammed for dressing wrongly. The horror *cringe*
Anyway, I always have so much fun filming, episode after episode. The girls are fun to be around and crack me up a lot behind the scenes.


Enjoy a few photos
