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…

I got this blouse at the TWB Souk a few weeks ago. I love a good bargain! Vintage is fast become the trend in Nigeria and I’m loving it. I recently discovered Toseki Vintage (well not so recent but anyway…)and I love that their pieces are affordable and very rare; their pieces are most definitely one of a kind. Check our their blog here. Blouse: Toseki Vintage| Jeans: Zara | Shoes: Prada (I got these at Bicester Village for almost 75% off!)

When I’m not working as a lawyer, I’m living and breathing fashion. I recently styled a shoot for Wow Magazine, my very first editorial. I’ve been thinking about  moving away from personal styling/ personal shopping and focusing on editorials. Editorials allow you express yourself a bit better; it’s almost like a blank canvas and you’re free to do whatever you want. I’ve always been a huge fan of black and white photography, there’s something so mysterious an artistic about it. Being a bit of a tomboy, menswear-inspired womenswear makes me very happy; I decided to combine these two interests. I…

Frockit Rockit was launched in 2009; offering a tailoring service as well as vintage pieces. I discovered Frockit Rockit a few years ago but I got to know the label a bit better when I worked with its Creative Director, Tope Abiola, last year at Music Meets Runway. I love the fact that these wrap-dresses come in different colours and lengths; clients can select fabric and a design from their collection to suit their shape and style. You can visit the Frockit Rockit website here, to get a better idea. You should also check out Tope’s Instagram (@Topefnr), you’ll be tempted to buy every single dress…

A little while ago, we introduced the SBQ X O B S I D I AN series. (Have a look at the first post here). Isoken, Ijeoma, Demi and I had a good time, as usual, with this particular outfit, I hadn’t been on a swing in years, LOL.   LACE BLOUSE, DIPPED-HEM SKIRT & BAG: OBSIDIAN | SHOES: STEVE MADDEN Photography: Demi Banwo *This outfit is available at L’espace -19a, Olosa Street, Victoria Island.

I absolutely love over-sized T-shirts. I don’t know why, but I just love the comfort. A few weeks ago, someone at work pulled me aside to ask the following, “Why don’t you wear clothes that ‘show your figure’?”. Naturally I was taken aback by her bluntness, but I politely changed the topic. Sheesh. On a more serious note, I’m a bit of a tomboy, I like being comfortable all day. Of course   I feel like being lady-like and elegant on some days, but any day of the week, I’d pick a graphic T-shirt paired with jeans or leggings (always…
