I Wore A Dinner Dress By Touch-By-Asoebigirl & I Loved It!

Hey guys,

It’s been a minute! Last weekend, I had to attend a Gospel album launch which was like a dinner event-red carpet and stuff.

If you know me too well, you would know I love to patronize #madeinnigeria brands. Some of the designers do an amazing job but they aren’t well known by the public. Touch By-Asoebigirl is a Nigerian womenswear brand that focuses on making unique, stylish outfits for women.

For the woman whose style is about class, sophistication & personality and of course- budget, Touch By Asoebi Girl is your one true choice. I can say that I confidently used one stone to kill two-beasts (literally, just keep reading to know how..lol)

Flashback to a week before the event, I had zero idea on what to wear, I’m not a fan of “ready-made” Balogun wears trust me, you may find someone else wearing you dress-nobody steals my show!

The creative director was away to South Africa which got me panicking! I tried a few designers but they didn’t really satisfy me. I had to beckon on her because I scrolled through her IG page and loved what I saw.

 I wanted a simple but very sophisticated look but with a budget. My budget was from NGN 10,000- NGN 12,000. I also wanted the velvet and organza fabric together. How it will work out well was clearly not my business.

Right there in South Africa, she sent me three different sketches- I picked one and fell absolutely in love with it. Fast forward three days to the event, my dress was ready! How I love my life-planned and working out well! I literally STOLE the event!

The Lazy Outfitter, How to-dinner-dress-velvet

Did I mention I accessorized my dress with an old perfume bottle? Yes, seriously!

I’m planning to buy a bigger perfume bottle for future purposes *winks* and I also plan to keep more perfume bottles for other DIY purposes.

Intercontinental Hotel, Lagos- Dinner-The Lazy Outfitter

I lodged at the Intercontinental Hotel, Lagos. That’s another story for another day! If you are familiar with the three buildings-it’s the 1004 storey buildings that are mainly for apartments. Islanders would know this place!

The pictures didn’t do justice to this dress but I promise to re-rock this piece and get a clearer picture plus angle!

How To Mix Ankara Prints So Easily!

Mixing Ankara prints is something I have come to love. Although many are still trying to get it right, I can say reluctantly that it’s that easy to mix Ankara prints.

To get it right, here are few ideas to consider;

  1. Consider the colours before you match. E.g. If you have a blue themed Ankara print, think about the colours that can match blue. Colours like grey, yellow, red. 
  2. Patterns can be quite confusing so deal with the basics. Things like a big floral patterns would match with small floral patterns.
  3. Let your desired style be simple and chic: It would be better to sew a two-piece with different Ankara print than trying to “patch” a dress with another print (it could work but it may not turn out well).

Let’s see how these fashionistas are bringing their A-game with the mixed prints!

African Print Turban Is High On Trend!

The Headwrap game is on and if you want to be on your A-game, you have to watch tonnes of vids and practise a bit more to be on top. I love African print because they are colourful, extends our culture and needs to be explored much more. Remember I did a turban post some time ago (read here)

I found Nadira (A YouTuber and Fashion blogger) who through her vid, shows how to tie an African print turban in five different ways!

Watch and learn!
