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.

That’s a Wrap…StylebyToyoC x NKWO

Hi Guys,

This look finally is up here…Yayyyy…:)

How’s your weekend going? It was raining here in Calgary, so I’ve been catching up on shows. I watched the whole season of the Quad on BET, so now looking for more series.

I am excited to share this look with you but a little background about the designer. NKWO is a womenswear label whose pieces have been featured in NYFW 2008 and collection has been sold in the luxury brand store Galeries Lafayette.

The pieces were first seen on the runway show during LFDW 2016 and I was really impressed because her pieces showed a great blend of modernity and African culture.  My love of white and denim knew new bounds. You know in 2016, I rocked a lot of white/off-white looks, white can be difficult to pull off if not done right. I usually say accessorize with bold colours and always carry a stain remover in your bag (very important hehe, trust me).
