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!

IMG_20171125_232343

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!

There’s A Social Media Influencer Academy For Bloggers In Italy!

Hey guys,

As much as this news is quite exciting, my bank account hasn’t been smiling to afford a degree in Italy. Conde Nast just launched their digital academy in Italy called the Social Academy where digital influencers will get certified.

 

People don’t understand the underestimation by brands that fashion bloggers/fashion influencers face especially here in Nigeria. That is about to change! Fashion influencers, beauty influencers, digital influencers will now have a certificate like a normal profession. How cool is that?

According to WWD,  The main purpose of the initiative is to teach the correct way to use social media, which focuses on quality content and respect for ethical standards. These include being specific about advertised posts and managing the number of followers and likes with transparency. 

The school programmes begin in November and will be the first digital influencer school in Italy to offer such privileges to a new generation of bloggers or content creators.

I’m screaming with excitement!!

Fashion: My 2 Cents On This Balenciaga Triangle Bag!

balenciaga, thelazyoutfitter, bag trend 2017

 

Hey guys,

Here goes my first post for this month! I have been busy with a lot of activities from the Lagos Fashion Design Week and another fashion week tomorrow.

Anyways, just before the year runs out, I have been longing for Balenciaga as a whole. Though there has been a lot of critique about the Balenciaga products. People have their opinions about the logo which makes their product very expensive. Stuff like “remove the logo and the product would be as cheap as a thrift store product” check twitter for the most horrible comments.

Balenciaga’s new Creative Director -Demna Gvasalia is doing quite a good job if you want my opinion. From the time he re-invented his $1450 two-toned denim and making fashion icons purchase it, I though he must be good. He’s thinking out of the box! Well, that’s what fashion should be about you know, we have had square bags, rectangular bags, and all the bag shapes that have 4 sides. He thought about making trianular bags which of course, sold out or are elitist in nature.

I personally appreciate this bag and don’t mind purchasing it if I have a few dollars to spare. Love everything about the shape, the size and other features like the strap attached to it. Only quirky fashion babes would totally get this. If you love street style just like me, this is one bag trend you have to hop on!

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

off white strap/belt (thelazyoutfitter.wordpress.com)

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.

#Tuesdayshoesday: My White Mountain Block Heeled Shoes Are To Die For!

I’m currently listening to CHER- DO YOU BELIEVE IN AFTERLIFE!

There are some shoe brands you just don’t know they exist which are pretty good in quality as well. Momma gifted me these blocked heels and I couldn’t be any happier! I fell in love instantly.

I have always been the jelly, brogue, boots and footwear kinda chic but recently I needed to look a bit more mature/girly and some height needs to be added to my 5ft 3inches length as a human.

“I’m down to earth like that..lmfao! Sometimes when I dress up and complete my look with jellies or brogues I just had that feeling of ” I look like I’m still in uni”. Heels have a way of making you look older, more girly if I should say, so I decided to try out these White Mountain block heels and from the look of things it’s gonna be around for a long while!

Did you ever feel like wearing brogues, footwear, jellies made you feel less “mature” in look?

#shadesofblue: How I Styled My Double Slit Palazzo Pants!!

No this time I didn’t go thrifting!

Palazzo! Palazzo! Palazzo! it has been on my must-have outfit before 2017 runs out and I’m glad I have it and I’m definitely making more palazzo pants.

I have always wanted to have the double slit palazzo pants and voila! it showed up as a gift already tailored by a friend! Aren’t I just so lucky? 

I’m really gushing over these pants because you know it’s comfortable, easy to yank in and out. 

But what is fashion without comfort really?IMG_20171006_110843[1]

 Remember this cold shoulder ruffle top I wore in August when touring LCC? (read here) I had to do a quick match but first I was caught in between styling it on a shirt or top but I had none (can you even believe I only have two shirts?). I basically came up with this perfect look with what I had in the wardrobe and I loved the outcome!

#OOTD: Styling Stripes On A Retro Floral SKirt!

Styling this retro floral skirt for me was a win!

Processed with VSCO with  preset

At first, I couldn’t decide what to wear with the skirt. The first colour that popped in my head was white, i switched to black, then red till I was finally confused about my outfit choice. But then again I searched a bit further till I discovered my 3year old stripe top laying helplessly at the bottom of my box in my shrine. ..LOL (nickname my mom gave my wardrobe)Processed with VSCO with  preset

Yes, is it just only me but I tend to carefully arrange my clothes and then in a second I tumble everything upside down, side to side, middle to bottom and diagonally just to look for an appropriate outfit…(ehen naw, as per blogger, you want to match that outfit well!)

I took the stripe top and matched it with the retro skirt and voila! It made absolute sense!! I couldn’t drop it down for a second and everything was perfect!!

P.S. I got my retro skirt for N300 2years ago in my final year!21820016_289862554827155_4769317301080031232_n

There are other ways to style floral skirts too like mixing polka dots, dog tooth/houndstooth, check and sometimes gingham. The key point here is the colour! make sure that the stripes you are matching with the floral print skirt have a particular colour in common.

Unboxing My Summer Gift Box Got Me “Shook”

Summer is literally oveerr but I can say that I had a taste of it! *winks*

Since I could not ‘travel to the abroad” for summer, the abroad came to me in a box of gift! Thankful to the hands that blessed me with these gifts!

My box contained a brand new Jessica Carlyle watch, Baobab African necklace and of course “My Berry”perfume I never got to talk about. Well, without much ado about the gifts let’s unbox already! And I couldn’t stop taking pictures (flatlays).

Yaba Market Haul: N7,000 Tough Leather Bags!

Yes, I thrifted 3 lovely bags for N7,000 at the famous Yaba market!

It feels really good to be back especially after my phone was stolen! One of the things that got my mind off things was thrifting. Sounds weird but I went to Yaba market with the “sole aim” of buying a mom jeans but ended up thrifting three lovely bags!

 

IMG_20170910_151526[1]

I went for a cream-colored “laptop” bag for N2500, A mini animal purse for N2500 and a burgundy  Jack Danni minimal bag for N2000.

After sighting this three cuties and the texture, I couldn’t help but purchase them. I haven’t had big bags since Uni (2years now). It feels really good carrying authentic bags (as per real tough leather) which some fairly-used items have.

At least I guarantee these bags would last more than 3 years which is quite cheap if you calculate it *winks* I can’t wait to style these babies in my next post!

What to consider when going thrifting

  1. You must note that not all thrift items are worth buying regardless of the price. When thrifting at Yaba, the best time to go thrifting is evening time from 6pm prompt and keep your eyes to the ground.
  2. Don’t go to Yaba broke! Yes, you will make yourself feel bad after seeing good stuff to you would like to buy.
  3. When bargaining for a price make sure you start with a lower price you intended so that if you have to increase it, you would stay at a price you can afford instead of going higher.
  4. Be careful of thieves!
  5. You are going to get persuasions from Yaba men (sellers) which can make you go crazy but don’t, smile and calmly refuse.IMG_20170911_084239_161[1]
