Fashion Trend: This Off___White Strap Issa Must-Have For me!

I can predict myself wearing this belt at the Lagos Fashion Design week/ The GTB Fashion Weekend!

The Off__White brand (run by Virgil Abloh) re-echoes freshness, contemporary retro with a touch of innovation, class and sporty vibes. At this point, I’m wearing everything this brand puts up (in my head of course). 

I’m jumping in on this trend yo!

From the just-concluded  New York Fashion Week, Off__White made a huge entrance with their boxy silhouettes, fashion-forward accessory and a whole lot of attitude to the game of fashion. Though many considered their collection “quite ugly”, Rihanna did change the status-quo rocking their boxy jean set and nude crop boxy top making the brand trend more than necessary weeks after fashion week!

For this brand is a new found respect and the straps (which are trending seriously) is a must-have!Fashion enthusiasts, fashion-forward men and women have found a cool way to wear this accessory. It’s even surprising that rich dogs of Beverly Hills rock this strap as a leash!

How it is styled by style enthusiasts.

Accessory: Retro Casio Watch WR10M & Casio Gents Digital Sports Watch for N2,500 At Obalende Market!

Enough said about retro shirts, retro shoes, bags what about other accessories like watches?

If you read my article about my summer gifts which included a Jessica Carlye watch (which I lost while hustling for a bus to the office), it made me go back to my Casio silver watch. Then again I had to buy another Casio but of course thrifting!

Watches may not really be in trend the way clothes, shoes and bags are but it’s an important accessory that needs to be carried around. If you notice quite well, people of class and style wear Casio- FACT!

I personally can’t do without a watch, it makes my wrist feel NAKED!

The retro watch making a huge comeback is the CASIO watch and I have been obsessed for 3 years. Although Daniel Wellington wrist watch wanted to take over but Casio has some qualities I rather stick to.

Some retro watches you must have known while growing up are;

  1. ETSY CALCULATOR WATCH
  2. G-SHOCK
  3. ROLEX VINTAGE WATCH

At least I’m that old to remember those..lol

Things you don’t know about Casio Watches:

  1. G-Shock is a line of watches manufactured by Casio, designed to resist mechanical shock and vibration. Its full form is Gravitational Shock
  2. Even Baby G watches are made by Casio companies
  3. Other Casio products are; cash registers, hand terminals, projectors, pianos, digital cameras and label printers.
  4. The Casio batteries last up to 10years (ah..long enough to meet my first child)

Casio watches (WR10m and Casio Gents)

I went online for a new Casio watch as a “big girl” that I am, only to find out that that one-time “mallam watch” of a Casio watch price ranges from N6,500- N35,000 !. Nooo…I wasn’t  having it and neither was my bank account at the moment. I resolved thrifting and found two Casio retro watches I’m gonna keep rocking for life! 

I found the Casio WR10M and the Casio Gents’ Digital Sports Watch (black) which in total costs N2,500 (uhuh…say that again) when I could have spent N18,500 altogether! (Lucky me)
