How is your week going?
We have another designer featured in the #MadeinNigeria series.
I am celebrating Nigerian brands and the amazing talents in Nigeria. I noticed the brand, Wanger Ayu on social media (instagram) and finally met the creative behind the brand last year October. I must say she has a humble and sweet personality and love her pieces. If you recall, I wore the AMIRA dress from the A/W 16-17 collection during fashion week (click here). Her pieces are definitely one word CHIC.
I am excited to know more about the brand and the success story. Read all about my chat with Designer Wanger Ayu below.
If you are following my Instagram page and I dragged you here (lol), you will be happy. I have GREAT news. Many people have inquired about the Toyo C top made by Designer Boya Apparels and I am in a giving mood (yay, someone say whoop whoop).
How was your weekend? Mine was relaxing. I am starting a #MadeinNigeria Series this New Week and I’ve got a new Designer on the spotlight today. I love finding Nigerian Brands and in support of #MadeinNigeria products.
My sister wore a top from this designer, I liked it and wanted to know about the brand. I spoke to the designer, such a humble and funny personality and conducted a mini-interview (LOL) to learn about his brand. This brand has been seen on many people from media personality Lamide and Zainab Balogun to Top Model Tarmar Awobotu. I am starting my week with a simple yet classy look from the brand. Guess the price tag of my dress? Let’s find out below.
It’s Friday and I’m ready to swing…???? ???? ???? ???? Can you all remember this song?
I am in love with the 90s’ so I decided to do an Afro-Punk Inspired Look.
I have to say this is one of my favorite looks and so happy the pictures came out better than I expected.

Couple of weeks ago, I came across AmarelisAtelier on Instagram and I loved their look book collection and couldn’t help but get my hands on it. You know the caption “I wish that every time I liked an outfit on Instagram, it would magically appear in my closet”, that’s exactly what I did LOL (but no magical part). I was inspired after seeing this skirt, I knew I wanted my readers to see how I put the look together. You can see how playful I am through my pictures, I can’t remember what was said by my amazing team but its always fun working with them. I paired my mesh skirt with an off-white cami top and the choker (LIFE…) just adds the swag alongside with my DAPMOD shades. The lippie I used was somewhat grey which is completely different from my usual lippie look. The mules gives the outfit a casual yet classy look.
Readers, I would love to know, would you rock this outfit to any occasion? Let me know in the comment section.
