OPARABOY AND PALS.

Beautifully ethnic crew.



CHILL.

As seen at GTBANK Fashion Weekend.

Fashion is serious business.

Actually, it's not that serious.

FRINGE BENEFITS.

Simply gorgeous in all that fringe detail.



 

BLACK AND WHITE.

In Law School, the rule was enforced to wear only black and white on every school day.


A happy medium for colour enthusiasts like me would have been if we were permitted any variance of clothing as long as it was in the prescribed black and white. But no.
Midi skirts and shirts only.


I love law, the study and practice of.


Study of, could have been more zesty however, if we could look life Hafy, my beautiful style subject from GTBank Fashion Weekend.

BLACK FRIDAY.

😊😊😊I recall when the U.K. adopted into the typical American culture of frenzied "Black Friday" sales/shopping.

I  still lived in Scotland at the time and I was amused by the way commercialization possessed the power to sway even the most traditional of countries into adopting foreign concepts.

Imagine my further amusement at moving back home to Nigeria and finding huge pop up banners across Lagos, also touting magic reductions tagged as Black Friday?

What? When? I mean...what?

Interesting.

However...I only wish most retailers around these parts would walk the real price slash walk instead of just talking the talk.

To be fair there are some genuine deals going here and there but what do you do when you see an item labelled as "formerly N5,000, now N4,950!"?

My 10year old finds these pseudo price slashes hilarious. I'm not sure what to find it.

In law, we say "equity looks to the intent, rather than the form", so my dear Nigerian retailers, before you adopt the "Black Friday" form, please help consumers by checking that your intent qualifies accordingly.
Don't get us all excited during the build up and then disappointed when the time shows up - the highs and the lows do not augur well for the emotional stability of dedicated shoppers. 

Anyway, on this Black Friday, be visually pleased by this lovely lady in this embellised black dress who incidentally describes herself as The Black Rose on Instagram.

Wherever you are today...I wish you a happy (and responsible) shopping day.

Cheers dears.

INTERNATIONAL MAN.

Apparently, today is International Men's Day.

Now if this isn't an international man...

MINIMALIST.

She's living (and walking) proof you don't have to do "extra" to be high on the style stakes.

OBI LEATHER.

He was such a fine character, Instagram handle is @obi_leather.

Began asking me hard-hitting money related questions right off the bat.

Also insisted I pay him for his modelling.

Talked myself out of it.

The lawyer in me...
