What I wore – Linen Jogging pants

IMG_1311

As I type this right now, I am in serious physical pain. I think I must have sprained my Femur bone,  the bone where the thigh meets the hip joints during a work out. Actually after I saw my bulging tummy ala the purple dress here. I decided to do something about it and so I hit YouTube for abs firming and muffins burning exercise routine. While at it, I stumbled upon this thigh firming routine and I figured I should add it to my workout regimen also. Continue reading What I wore – Linen Jogging pants

Pictures from the Sideview Magazine 5th Anniversary Celebratory dinner

IMG_1283

Last week Friday after work, I had the pleasure of attending the Side view magazine celebratory dinner at Bistro 7 with the editor and team at sideview magazine. Aside from the usual African time issue, the event was slated to start at 5.30 pm but didn’t kick off till 8.30 pm, It was a very cool and cozy event with lots of food, drinks, entertainment and beautiful people around.  and as usual, I decided to take shots of lovely people at the event. As we all know “Lagosians” are the best dressed people in the world, you don’t believe me? Ask Google (boldfaced).

I didn’t get much pictures though, I forgot to charge my battery and my camera gave up after a few shots. I didn’t brood much, I simply packed up the camera and attacked the food. Continue reading Pictures from the Sideview Magazine 5th Anniversary Celebratory dinner

What I wore – Shades of Green

IMG_1307

Hi guys, hope you are cool, Its another week already, Can you believe that November is almost ended and December is just a few days away? This year really flew by. I am just so grateful to God for his mercies so far and by his grace, he will see us through the remainder month and into the new year (cant believe I just said the new year, sounds really surreal, 2013 was just yesterday now).

Usually as the year draws to an end, its a time of sober reflections for me, was I able to achieve my set goals for the year? How well did I fare with my resolutions? Continue reading What I wore – Shades of Green

What I wore – Purple Jumpsuit

IMG_1254

Oh yes I did! I swept Lagos clean with my pants. Seriously I don’t think this jumpsuit would look half as nice with the length shortened though I would wear with a longer heeled shoe next time. I was too obsessed with matching the gold captoe of the shoes to my accessories to think of functionality. Anyway thankfully I went from Cab to the venue of the wedding reception, venue to cab and cab to home, so No I didn’t sweep Lagos clean yet. This question of functionality over aesthetics brings to mind a conversation I had with my sister this morning.

She had a wedding to attend and after we had set out what she was going to wear to stun the hell at that wedding yesterday, I left her and went off to a beach party. I came home only to find that she ditched the shoes – a multicolored sequinned shoe I picked specifically to create the wow factor for her chosen outfit – a black jumpsuit, for a plain black shoe she claimed was functional aka very comfortable. I was mad ofcourse, she had ruined everything, lol.

When it boils down to choice, aesthetics vs functionality, what do you go for? I am sure you already know my answer. Continue reading What I wore – Purple Jumpsuit

Forest Green

IMG_1264

I broke down on my resolve not to buy anything new till the end of the year with this lovely forest green shift dress. Seriously who wouldn’t? And at the rate I got, I would be an obvious fool to let it go. It was an absolute steal.  I spied the beauty along Obalende way on my way home  from an interview for a Job I didn’t get eventually anyway this beauty was hanging in one of those makeshift roadside secondhand shops, my trained eye instantly saw this beauty for what its worth.

Who wore the Burberry SS2013 metallic trench coat better? Beyonce VS Nkiru Anumudu

Picture1

If you have never heard of Eclectic and terrifically fashionable Nkiru Anumudu, then you are probably living under a very unfashionable cage, sorry :D. When it comes to fashion, Nkiru doesn’t hold back , infact, she has been referred to as the Anna Dello Russo of Nigerian fashion , always outfitted in high end designers styled rather quirky. She was recently spotted at the 2013 Aquafina Elite Model Look Nigeria Finale in Lagos in the Purple version of the Burberry SS2013 metallic trench coat  which she styled in her usual eye catching fashion with a pair of Burgundy pumps and pink shoe fascinator. Beyonce aka Queen Bey needs no introduction obviously. She was also recently spotted in the same trenchcoat in burgundy, she finished up hers with a pair of silver pump, dark lips and blonde flowing hair.

My vote goes to Beyonce, Nkiru has so much going on with the coat. The metallic sheen of the coat ensures the coats gets all the attention and therefore need very little or minimal styling. Who has got your vote here, who wore it best? Pray tell.
