Streetstyle update from the AW Couture 2014 shows in Paris

Tags

,

Equally as interesting  as the couture shows are the style that goes on the streets . Maybe because its Couture, the  fashion outside has been dressy, simple, tailored and elegant . Nothing crazy or outlandish and thankfully almost zero  normcore aka death to fashion. As a grown woman, I am here for these looks. See more on vogue.co.uk.

july2014

Eku Edewor must really sell magazines . I am just saying because her utterly delightful face has been on quite a lot of covers. Now If one of her is a sale generator as I imagine judging from the number of covers she has had so far, imagine what double that face cozying up together is likely to do? The make up and styling is beautiful and the second cover look wearing IamIsigo was gorgeous. I am definitely sold on that gold/tan croptop and skirt Kessiana has on. The styling is impeccable as it always is with Dimeji Alara. So will you be buying this edition?

Eku Edewor in Zara for Breakfast with Ituen Basi

Its always  refreshing to see socialites like Eku known for her high fashion ensembles take on high streets . She was spotted on July 4 at the “Breakfast with Ituen Basi” in Lagos in Zara paint brush shift dress and print skirt. While I am here for the braids, the shades, bag and footwear, I must say I am not wowed with the silhouette of the outfit on her. What do you think though?

Toke hosted the red carpet at the Fayrouz L’Original Finale  in a gold and black wrap dress with boubou sleeves and thigh high slit. she accesorized with matching gold drop ear rings and black strappy sandals, hair pulled off her face in a loose side part and nude lips completed the look. While this dress could have easily overwhelmed her petite frame,, I think she served. What do you think?

More looks from the show below

Model and Tv host Zainab looking flawless in a nude halter neck dress and matching pump.

CHIDINMA EKILE

Chidinma’s style is always a disappointment so no surprise here really. With such petite and cute frame, she really should consider getting a stylist or fire her current one if she already has one.

Beverly Naya (1)

Another underwhelming look from actress Beverly Naya

KAYLAH ONIWO

Loved OAP Kayla Oniwo’s look here.

Noble Igwe (5)

This dude right here knows what fashion is all about, from the fit to the finishing. Noble Igwe is the real deal.

Sharon Ojong (4)

Stylist and Koko mansion reality star, Sharon Ojong was stunning in an all white ensemble.  So Who had your best looks?

Omotola stars in Konga marketplace AD

The decision to cast Omotola for the Konga AD is fantastic. Its guaranteed to create a lot of buzz and views. The fashion choices were apt, I loved the styling, the colour choices and the fits of the various outfits, kudos to stylist extraordinaire Ezinne Chinkata of Zinkata styling. Also the message of the AD was not consumed by the star effect. The language was apt and the message clear. I wasnt so crazy about the make up and hair in the last shot with the dazzingly beautiful red dress but in all, cool AD. Also, the online market place seems like a great concept, hopefully, the terms for the sellers will be too. What do you rate the AD?

Floral Blue and a pop of red

IMG_1696IMG_1703 IMG_1705 IMG_1706 IMG_1708I am a huge fan of red. For me, its the new black and totally pops against everything. I wore this for a day out with Tega. It was a public holiday here and we felt like dining out. Finland is such a funny place. On public holidays, everywhere is shut down, the malls, restaurant, every damn thing. We walked through the city searching for a place we can eat as all of our favourite places were closed down. Just when we were about to give up and go home, fortunately, we stumbled across a Chinese restaurant. Thank God for Chinese and their hustle. We are not great fans of Chinese but hey, we were both so hungry everything tasted so damn good that day. lol.

PS – Summer has refused to come here in Kotka Finland, we had a little bit of it in May but since then, its been crazy. I am glad Tega will soon be done with his assignment here and we can return to London.

Kente spring Jacket

IMG_1663IMG_1623IMG_1621IMG_1625IMG_1638 IMG_1640IMG_1667IMG_1662IMG_1660Hi guys, its been a teeny weeny while since I last posted. I blame it on the cold weather we have been having latey. I wore this outfit last week while it was a bit warm but somehow just getting around to posting. The Kente jacket was made in Nigeria, just before I left for Finland by my able tailor Seun whom I am certain miss me and my wahala. Its just the perfect spring jacket, perfect for those days when its warm but not warm enough. I love it, its a great statement piece so I made sure to keep everyother thing neutral.

Statement necklaces are so in right now. Its an effortless way to dress up your look with little or no effort. Think tank top and denim and slap on a pair of statement neckpiece and voila, instant glam. Its great with a dress, a pair of pants, shorts basically everything. It will serve you for a stroll in the streets , dramatically usher you into a formal event as you can see on Kendall below. The trick however is to keep every other thing simple. Enamoured as I am? Get it here. Continue reading »

Didnt get lots of good pictures in this outfit. The sun was already down when the pictures were taken, so save for this few, the others were too dark. Yeah those are the pink pumps as promised, turned out they were perfect for this co-ords I grabbed at HM sales for 12 Euros. The purse was thrifted for 3 Euros. Hahaha, I love a good bargain always.
