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!

My Love Affair With the Colour White

There’s just something about the colour white. Funny thing is I was never a huge fan of it, I always preferred dark colours -black, grey, navy…

White has peace and happiness written all over it; those two words describe me perfectly these days! :)

Of course, my dearest Toyosi was there to capture these happy moments on a sunny afternoon. The best part of this shoot though, was the fact that I got to wear these gorgeous shoes which I got for F.R.E.E. (I’ll just let that sink in for now…)

The Creatives

I have some amazingly talented friends and it’s pretty cool that we are all so supportive of each other.
My creative homies came out for my birthday and we had way too much fun.
The pictures were taken my equally talented family member (lol) -Demi Banwo; shame he wasn’t in any of the pictures!

Vintage Love

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.
