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). Blouse: COS| Jeans: ZARA Photography: Toyosi Faridah Kekere-Ekun Love and Comfort! Kike  & Tobi

Lanre Da-Silva Ajayi Couture – epitome 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”. Love Always, Kike & Tobi

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…

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.

So, it was my birthday on Friday, the 4th of October. My day started off a bit rocky but it ended up being the best day, in fact, the best weekend ever. Thank you to everyone who made me feel special that day. God bless you guys Here’s another one of my love/play sessions with Toyosi.

I’m in a very interesting mood this evening so this post is going to be slightly different. I share Toyosi (TFK) with her brother, one of my best friends, Koye. In fact, if you ask them, they’ll tell you they have “joint-custody” of me. Toyosi is one of the most talented and one of the most hilarious people I know. Shooting with her is always easy, it never feels like we are “working”, we’re literally just having a good time. When you work with friends, it’s no longer “work”, it’s really just a fun day. Toyosi and I are currently ill,…
