This CLAN Jumpsuit is everything and more. My co-workers know me too well; I had made my love for this jump-suit very clear at work and my Secret Santa decided to give it to me as a Christmas Present. How cool is that?

I love the colour, the fit, the detail -especially the gold lace detail on the back.

Grey

I keep getting comments at work about how I “run away” from form-fitting clothing. This is totally untrue. I just have a lot of tom-boyish ways and I love my comfort. There’s something about clothing that’s loose fitting -you can breathe, you can eat to your heart’s content and you can be free!

One of my favourite places to shop for such clothing is COS (Collection of Style).

Old Hollywood

Lanre Da-Silva Ajayi Coutureepitome of elegance and glamour.

I am totally in love with this dress by LDA! I wore it to a friend’s mum’s 50th birthday dinner and I got so many compliments, most of my Aunts couldn’t believe the dress was made by a Nigerian.

A major shout-out to Toyosi for these pictures; they remind me a lot of “Old Hollywood”.

We Like Pleats

I think it’s safe to say that one of my favourite Nigerian Designers is CLAN. I love minimalist fashion. You don’t need to much to make a statement; and that’s exactly what CLAN does for me.
I particularly love this dress because I can wear it to work, I can wear it to a formal event and I can wear it to a wedding – trust me on this; I’ve done all three.
I have absolutely no issues with repeating my outfits; I’m not sure why people are so bothered by that. If you spend money on an item, you better be willing to use that item to death.

I got my shoes at an outlet mall for a really ridiculous price, so ridiculous that I paid for the shoes and ran out of the store; I was so sure they would tell me they made a mistake with the price.

Oldie But Goodie

Happy Holidays SBQ Readers!
What an awesome year it’s been… We’re most definitely looking forward to a fun and blessed 2013, for many reasons *ahem*.

Thank you all for the lovely messages and prayers you’ve sent our way this year, we appreciate the love! We’re also grateful for your patience with us this year, we promise to be better in the new year :) .

Here’s a shoot that I did with my lovely Toyosi, I never published it for whatever reason but I hope you love the outfit!

This blouse and matching skirt is an LDA piece; this colourful velvet fabric is already a beauty, but the gold lace appliqué just makes me love it even more.

My shoes (which I happily got at a third of the price) are by Ferragamo.

Quick Post -Clover Canyon

I don’t know what it is about prints, but I think they make certain features ‘pop’.  The Californian based line, Clover Canyon definitely reflects this, with their vivid prints, I saw this dress at one of my favourite stores, Owen, in New York and I fell in love with it immediately; the colour, the print, the fit…

My ‘egbon’ (this means ‘big brother’ in Yoruba), Jide Alakija took these photos of me for a shoot we were working on together.

I just had to do a post on this dress!
