Fashion. Lifestyle, Made-In-Nigeria Brands! Yours Sincerely,

D.I.Y: Scarf Clutch.

It’s the beginning of another eventful weekend..(however you see it) and I have been work-work-working a whole lot!. Due to demand for the clutch I made here . I made this clutch bag out of one of my favorite scarves (tie-dye). I was out and about in my last post and couldn’t find my handbag and my satchel bag was no where to be found, so, I made this scarf clutch and I felt it would be really nice to share with you. I hope it’s not that difficult. Give it a try! would you?

P.S…there’s really nofn to put in this clutch bag!..lol.

What you need

  1. Scarf
  2. Two books of equal length

Guidelines:

  1. Get a wide scarf
  2. Get two books of equal length (but in this case, I used game cds)
  3. Fold them into the scarf  (just follow the picture)
  4. Tie the scarf on the edges and there you go!

I hope it’s easy for you to practice and feel free to give me your feedback!

Playful in Peach Pleated Skirt: Ranti Onayemi Blanchard Inspired.

Hello Lovelies!! Happy magic mystical Monday! Make your day work for you and get all the positive vibes going!

The first time I looked up this website here I really thought she was really cool and effortlessly chic. I thought she had the sense of style that I could totally rock all the time. She goes simple but really classy with all she wears and never does too much of all the jewelry..(because some people think wearing too much jewelry makes you stylish or fashionable or some people think not wearing at all makes you a religious fanatic…whatevs!) 

Wearing pleats (especially long pleat skirts) can be very complicated to wear and might give you the feeling of not being sexy in your dress. I can’t remember the last time I rocked a pleat skirt and felt really good in it but thanks to Ranti Blanchard post on Instagram, she made the peach- pleat- long skirt, fun, flirty and nice!. I decided to get me some peach-pleat long skirt and rocked it my way. While Ranti rocked hers with a grey long sleeve, I rocked mine with a white lace long sleeves, I also made a tye-die clutch bag which I would share how I made it later on the blog...how would you rock yours ladies?

Btw..I have to admit that I’m still shy taking pictures by the walkway or anywhere else in the world!.(help somebody)

HAVE AN AWESOME WEEK AHEADxoxo!

Some Street Vibes

Holla lovelies!! T.G.I.F!!! who else is swerving  hitting the quan!! this weekend? I have been having some street vibes lately and I wouldn’t be wearing much of this street fashion especially because I joined the 9-5ers (ikr..) So..I took to my closet to bring out most of my -not-work-clothes and basically played with it. I made my own street rules on this, what’s yours?

Street style could also be mixed with the urban touch  and could be long jackets, mostly black on black, fedoras, goth lips, a bit of punk, boots, long gowns and crops. But however you mix and match is a bit of street..

Have a great weekend! xoxo

 

 

 

On Men’s Style & Fashion: Dr. F.A.B

 

Screenshot_2016-04-06-23-46-07-1Hi lovelies!!  The weekend bant is here coz it’s Thursday!! Hakuna Matata😆😆…

This week has been full of positive vibes and a lot of blogging challenges too -the no electricity, awesome heat and worst of all, network connection problems😢😢. Here is my very first feature on my blog and I’m hoping to do lots more! (coz it can’t always be about me you know…and I support young, creative and hustling men in the fashion business)

Next week is really going to be special on here and I will spill a bit of the secret..I would have a feature on fast rising first a Medical doctor then a designer and he has his tentacles into all things fashion from bespoke suits,blazers to sandals, bags, shoes, wristwatches (uhuh..you name it).Screenshot_2016-04-06-23-46-59-1

Dr. FAB is more into the urban-classy gentleman style mixed with a bit of street style which makes him a “pick-pick” here😊 and would be your favourite if you follow his Instagram page .

So..I think I have spilled some part of the bean already and anticipate the next feature where he will share with me on his brand and style. I love Dr. FAB’s sense of style because it’s a mix of street and urban touch for the young ,fun and fearless men! and yup! ladies you ain’t left out. We need more creatives on the street urban, classy style because W.O.T.S ( word on the street), this fashion is gonna be here for a long, long time to come..What’s your take on his style?

EASTER INSPIRED!

Happy Easter Holidays!! How is the hols coming along for ya??–I’m excited!! So..some few years back I traveled to Accra,Ghana (in West Africa) and I had the opportunity to visit their local market (Mokola) which was so much fun and I thought it best to shop for Ghanaian prints. Well, I was inspired by the meaning of Easter (Resurrection of Christ) to come up with this combo. The bright colored top signifies bright light and the print patterns signifies the different parts of the world!…I was a bit agitated about the combo.. Id like to know what you think!

Double Dose: All Black x Colour Pop

 

 Hi guys!! Hope you had a fa-bu-lous weekend?? (..hell yeh, I had to stretch that..lols) and how’s the Easter hols coming along?😉

So..I know I have been a bit of a lazy drone lately and I apologise for that..I have really been up and about!. So this week has been exciting and I did my very first collaboration with my munchkin and fellow fashion blogger-in-crime, Ebunoluwa Bello of wanshygirl.wordpress.com.

We were a bit agitated on what to do but we were inspired by Dee Mako’s “Please Shoot Me” post and we decided to do an all black and a pop of colour to it. Dee’s was black and a kimono but we decided to do WE! 😂😂…(http://www.deemako.com/2016/03/please-help-me-shoot.html?) That’s the link to Dee’s post…go check it!

The fun part of this collaboration or double dose is that we got to achieve what we wanted without seeing each other!

My pop of colour is green jelly sandals, wine hat, red neck piece, gold bangles,pink umbrella and of course a two-tone purple and red lippie…Ebun’s was a black fedora, blue bangles, blue shoes, and emerald clutch . It’s easy to do a colour pop…don’t be afraid to mix black and other shouty colours!..

Take a good look at the shoot, I’d like to know ur thoughts and ur choice of co

The Kiss, Marry and Kill of Fashion

Hi guys! Mondays are always perceived as very stressful and no fun-day at all but hope yours was not that bad. So I decided to play a lil game and have fun on here and  do a bit of “the kiss, marry and kill” in a fashion perspective but in the real world it’s a kinda game you play on people.

For example, I’d kiss Big Sean, Marry  Mark Zuckerberg and Kill….(so u get it now..). So here’s what we are going to do? Pick three things in fashion that you would love to “kiss”, “marry” and “kill”.

Well, my items are;

  1. The LBD (little black dress)
  2. lbd4

So,  I would totally kiss an LBD anytime any day provided it’s a little above the knee cap and if it’s got a collar then it’s perfect but if not, I still love it anyways…. lbd

lbd 2

2.Military Boots/ Combat Boots/ Brogues or any male inspired shoes and of course it has to be vintage!.

Aren’t these supposed to be married to? of course they are!! ain’t nothing like having a brogue or military boots cuz those heels ain’t gat nathing on it.

The beauty is, LBD goes on any and it gives  you that edgy, confident look and you can add the boss-lady to it!

3. The Halter necks: I’d totally Kill it. I don’t like halters!. They may look great but I just don’t feel comfortable on a halter anytime any dayIt kinda feels like it chokes and this probably explains why I don’t have the choker necklace. I love it but it’s a no-no for me.

halter neck 2

So I’m just gonna put up only one pic of halter neck.

My kiss, marry and kill of fashion is an LBD, Brogues/M.Boots and Halters. So what’s yours? I’d like to hear from you and N.B it could be anything!

 

Trend Alert! Leopard Prints

Holla!! I trust your weekend has been good so far?, well guess what’s creeping into the fashion scene and would soon be roaring out loud real soon??….yes! you guessed right!..it’s the leopard print or animal print (whichever one you like to pick) that’s trending guys!

The most exciting thing about the leopard print is that it comes in various forms and can go with any color (provided you accessorize properly) and it feels really soft on the skin. I think leopard prints are good to go  for any season. Leopard prints can come in different forms; Body con gowns, high waist skirts, Jackets/blazers,shoes/pumps/sneakers, scarves, watches, bags/clutches, belts,slim fit pants , hair ruffles and neck-pieces.

You can wear leopard prints to work, school, dates,parties, beaches, etc. My favorite combo of leopard skin is neon+leopard skin + black. What’s yours? Here are some inspirations I gathered for ya….

Style Glam: The “JLaw” cut-outs.

Helurr!!! (yes you!)  hope you have had a fabulous week so far and thanks for keeping up with my posts, been hell-busy lately and haven’t had the chance to post often (blogging challenges).

Btw…the golden globes as we already know held on Sunday (Jan 10) and I have been squinting my eyes to screen celebs who have stayed true to their style and Jennifer Lawrence (Jlaw) had my head nodding and literally saying “yes” to her dress.

Jlaw nails it when it comes to cut-outs and has remained true to her blonde, mild make-up and cut-out style. Jlaw’s dress was purr-fect! Her Christian Dior scarlet dress which is a combination of a crop top fused upon a dungaree-like gown and her Chopard jewelry was off the hook. Pheew! what a dress and one thing I love absolutely about Jlaw is, she goes easy wearing her accessories on her cut-outs. I would give some credit to Kate Hudson (your royal hotness) but Jlaw is my style glam for today! The Jlaw style is a cut-out, simple and super chic style and one to trend this year! (I’m predicting)..

See some of her red carpet looks ….
