To Layer or Not: What’s the Verdict? – StyleByToyoC x Ladunni Lambo

Hi,

How’s your week going? Mine has been so so to be honest. I have been having blah days but looking at how this shoot came out made me smile so I hope it makes someone’s day better.

I came across the brand during LFDW 2016 in Lagos, Nigeria and I loved how she infused Aso-oke (hand loomed cloth woven by Yoruba people of western Nigeria) in the collection. Ladunni Lambo is a womenswear brand and offers classy and sophisticated pieces for the modern day woman. I am wearing a piece from her SS17 collection (here).

As a style blogger, I am now becoming more aware about the brands I work with because there has to be a connection between the brand and my identity. I am highly impressed with this brand because it embodies African culture and modern femininity. I cannot lie I felt confident, sexy and classy (hehe). I really love this piece because of the versatile way to rock it. Ladies, which do you prefer? I can’t decide.

LADY BOSS…

Hi Readers,

What’s your definition of a Lady Boss? For me, a Lady boss is a woman who is willing to give without expecting anything in return, A woman who is confident and holds her presence wherever she goes. A woman who is an entrepreneur, who isn’t afraid to take risk and definitely emotionally intelligent. A woman who is fun and knows how to make people around her happy. Lastly, a woman who has a beautiful soul. Please let me know what’s your definition of a Lady Boss. I would love to hear from you.
