Lagos Fashion and Design Week || Day 3

Hey beautiful people, how is your week coming along? Today we are going to be talking about all thing Lagos Fashion and Design week and I am going to be giving you the tea of LFDW day 3  as I could not attend all days of fashion week. LFDW has finally come to an end and I am glad I was able to attend at least one day as it was a fun experience. I did not attend expecting much so I was not disappointed with my overall experience.

For the third day of LFDW, I decided to go simple so I wore one of my favourite dresses from The Ragged Priest which is currently my favourite clothing brand. Unfortunately, i did not get to take loads of outfit pictures because I went on my own and I was not really there to socialize I was mostly there observing. 

Let’s talk about the Lagos street style shenanigans that happens before the show start; in as much as people want to make it to the top 50, I think most people overdo it and forget what fashion is actually all about. One of the things that actually got to me was the way people actually dressed knowing that Lagos is hot AF! The people that did the Lagos street style for me were Demi Akin and Tgjonah (just to mention a few), you know they know what fashion entails.

OK! Now let’s talk about designers. 

Tokyo James: This was my favourite runway show that night, I just loved how he was able to put everything together in order to make sense because some designers get distracted by creating aseptically pleasing pieces that are not wearable. 

Andrea Iyamah: I loved everything about this collection, it was oozing all sort of beach vibe. They were so relatable and wearable and the bridal showcase was lovely and elegant made me consider getting my future wedding dress from a Nigerian Designer.

Lisa Folawiyo: I loved the way the designer was able to modernize traditional outfits, I mean she is known for fusing modern western styles with African prints. She inspired and gave me loads of ideas for styling traditional pieces.

Mia Atafo: His collection was everything and I think his showcase was the perfect way to end LFDW day 3  from his runway show to his beauty and the beast presentation. One of the things that made me love his show was his beard gang collection, that was just too beautiful. I really need to lay my hands on one of his beard gang shirts!

Maxivive: This was actually my least favourite collection because I did not understand the designer's concept, his collection made him look confused (my opinion).

In conclusion, I discovered new, creative designers even though I choose to attend Friday’s show because most of the Nigerian designers I follow and keep up with were showcasing their pieces on that day.

That is all of it for LFDW day 3.

Thanks for stopping by!! Cheers!!

Life Update + Lagos Lately

Hey guys, how did your weekend go? I know I have not been consistent lately, I really want to be but I am still in search of a photographer in Lagos, so if you know any photographer in Lagos please help a sister.

So I asked my insta fam for what they wanted to see on the blog between; Fenty beauty review and a life update and majority of them said life update hence this post. Whilst I was writing this post I realised that nothing much has happened since my last post.

It has been three weeks since I moved back to Lagos and I have been up to nothing really. The heat in this city actually makes it impossible to think. I am currently hoping to get into NYSC's next batch. At this point, NYSC is pissing me off as they keep changing the date of registration, the new date is tomorrow hopefully they don't change it.

I went for an O Wa N'bę on Friday and it was actually fun, I mean I have been home since I got back so going out was fun and going out made me realise that I was not ready for Nigeria mentally. Omg! You guys I went to computer village on Saturday and my goodness those men there actually irritated me so much they kept touching me to patronise them, I really can't explain the scene. Lol, I just remembered what happened on Thursday, if you ask me what my most embarrassing moment is/was I would say it is this; so basically I went out with my dad to take passport photographs for my NYSC application since the place was close to home we decided to walk, on our way there was a group of small boys that saw me they started saying stuff in Yoruba but I did not get cause I was not really paying attention to them, so they started speaking English, one of them was touching me (i really hate people touching me) I was trying to catch up with my dad because he was walking fast and I thought it would make them  flee. I eventually caught up with my dad and I told him what was happening some of them left by the time they saw my dad but some of them continued, one of them was like 'aunty please give me fifty naira' one of them said 'aunty is it because of I love you that you are doing like this' when my dad heard this he changed it for them  that statement and my dad's reaction cracked me up. It was actually embarrassing because it was on the road and people were watching. After gisting my mum this story, she came to a conclusion that they were trying to steal my phone.

Lagos has actually been a joke for me, anyways Lagos Fashion and Design Week starts this Wednesday and I am anticipating that and GTB fashion weekend is next month! Still not sure if I am attending LFDW but I am definitely attending GTB fashion weekend.

That's actually what I have been up to lately. What have you guys been up to? Please share in the comment box.

Thanks for stopping by!! Cheers!!!

My 10 Insecurities and I

Hello, my dear TPJay readers. Happy new month and I hope this month comes with so many blessings. According to today's title, we are going to be talking about my insecurities and this was inspired by some bloggers as they were sharing theirs on their Instagram and blogs and I would love to do same as I think that was brave of them. 

Going straight into it.........

1. My stomach, I have a really big stomach because I eat a lot these days. So I can't comfortably wear a crop top right now.

2. I have really big ears, I really do not care much about it these days because I wear hairstyles that cover them.

3. I have ugly feet I really do not like open toe shoes that is why most times you will see me in my trainers or covered shoes. My ugly feet are the reasons why I hate doing pedicure, I can't stand someone looking at them.

4. I use to think i had big lips, i don't think they are all that big or maybe it is because now big lips are cool, everyone wants big lips. Before it was cool I used to be insecure about them especially when you point them out to me.

5. I hate my laughter when I am I the public I will just smile at your joke (don't take it personally my laughter is really ugly.)

6. I used to be very shy and that made people walk over me when I was younger, could be shy sometimes.

7. I hate being called cute by guys because one guy called me cute and he meant the opposite lol (you would not understand this but it is sort of deep).

8. I hate feeling like I am stressing someone reason why I hardly reach out to people or ask for help.

9. My height! I never really cared about my height until recently it dawned on me that I might not be getting any taller and I am quite short, but I guess that is where my heels come in play.

10. And I am insecure around new people. Do not know why but I am.

Some of these insecurities still exist but minimal and I have outgrown some of them.

Do you have any insecurities? Do let me know in the comment box below.

Cop my style:

Top: M&S
Pants: Primark
Trainers: Nike Huaraches

Pictures were taken by my aunty and edited by me.

Thanks for stopping by!!! Cheers
