How The Oscar-Vanity Fair After Party Suit Style Can Inspire A Powerful Look For IWD Celebration!

The Oscar award may be over but we still have fresh memories from the Vanity Fair afterparty. Yes, the dresses gave us chills and left us wondering if the celebs were actually human (of course they were). Zoe Kravitz looked drop dead gorgeous in her feather frock ensemble by Yves Saint Laurent and that dress Kendall Jenner wore is a winner! There was so much to appreciate from the gorgeous pieces worn by every celeb and that’s how Hollywood keeps schooling the rest of the world in high fashion!

Apart from the glitters and cut-outs, the suit style worn by some female celebs were quite ‘tasteful’. Now, we are putting power suits back on the list of any red carpet or after party. Definitely not a bad idea! Who else caught the never ageing Naomi Campell looking lush in a white two-piece wrap suit by Alexandre Vauthier.

It’s the International Women’s Day celebration and these look at the Oscar Vanity Fair After Party inspires some sort of power, strength for women. I’m just saying that only powerful women love to show some strength in what they wear and what better way to explain the #pressforprogress theme than a suit style.

Can we take a moment to appreciate Angela Bassett as she stunned in a printed suit by Teresa Helbig? She absolutely nailed that look!

Janelle Monae gave herself the “Jane Bond” of the party as she gave us all the elements of power woman in one saucy colour, red!

Corsets would never go out of style even a Hollywood party permitted a suit style flashing a corset. Laura Dern showed us how in a Gabriela Hearst custom suit.

For all we care, we spotted Constance Wu in a multi-colour sequined wrap dress but we loved it still! A matching black pant will do no harm!

I Chose A Pyjamas Top & Styled It At The GTB Fashion Weekend!

This post is long overdue but it has to be written!

The Guaranty Trust Bank is one of the five-star commercial banks in Nigeria. They are known for their CSR and recently, their contribution to building Small & Medium Enterprise in the Food industry and the fashion industry.

Just in its second year of carrying out this project, this year turned out to be so much fun and aesthetically pleasing! Unlike the previous GTBank Fashion Weekend last year, there were props, clean mobile toilets and a spacious event centre. There was the Pop Up Sales stores by different Nigerian brands in the building and outside and the prices were relatively affordable.

I wanted the Masterclasses but managed to attend one-The Vanessa Kingori Class. She’s the New British Vogue Publisher. There was a lot to learn from her. 

I couldn’t have gone alone duh..I went with my partner-in-crime (@wanshygirl) and we had as much fun as possible. If I could I would drop all the pictures here! Also, I met a friend I hadn’t seen for 15 years! 

See details below!

I decided to rock the pyjamas trend just because it was a big trend earlier this year and haven’t even tried it. Pjs can be in floral prints, cotton or silk but best worn or styled in silk. I paired it up with a slim-fit denim with some Parisian vibe! I also loved the Graphic tee and culottes Ebun styled herself in!

Fashion: My 2 Cents On This Balenciaga Triangle Bag!

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!

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

casio watch

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)
