Statement Necklaces

It's no secret that I love statement necklaces because they have a way of transforming an outfit from boring to fabulous   I love wearing lots of shorts and maxis during the summer time.  Away to add a panache to any outfit is by wearing a statement piece, such as these chunky necklaces below.

Weekend Check-In

Hi my loves!! Just checking in on you, hope you’re having a splendid day.  I have such a busy weekend ahead- even though the weekend technically ends today (lol).  I’ve got tons of homework & studying to do.  My friend is planning a party later on and another friend is having his house warming party tomorrow that I may attend, depending on how much work I get done.  I really want to be present at both events, so wish me luck (:
Seyi & I goofing off in between shooting my next video that I hope to have edited by Tuesday (fingers crossed). To watch some of my previous videos, please subscribe here.

Today's SkinnyHip: Lolu

Gosh I love a man that can dress!!! Lolu is a UK based fashion designer with impeccable taste.  He pushes the boundaries with everything he wears and it just always works for him.  All the slippers and loafers (and some of the attires) he wears are made by him.  His brand is highly influenced by African and British fashion, catering to both male and females. You can shop Lolu's collections here.  So tell me, is Lolu SkinnyHip?

Ankara Inspired

I was so surprised when I saw this dress on ASOS because it looked like an outfit that could be sewn using ankara ( a Nigerian fabric). I wore it to church about two weeks ago and everyone thought I had it custom made. I decided to try something different with this outfit by tri-color matching - from head to toe, and I liked it. What do you guys think?PAO_5894-2558110431-O PAO_5900-2558110644-O PAO_5904-2558110770-O PAO_5896-2558110531-O
