MAXIMUM MINIMALIST.

It took a while but I eventually got to appreciate that sometimes the supposed effortless "minimalist" style may actually be a well thought out outfit with meticulously chosen accessories.

It's nice to see basics executed so well but still able to exhibit some kind of unflashy sleekness.

And that pixie cut? So weather appropriate.

No frills here but we love it.

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY.

It's a great day to be a woman.

Always a great day, frankly.

And in honour of same, here are some groups of fine international women I've photographed in recent times.

WATERSIDE IKOYI.

At the weekend, I was at the Waterside, Westwood Hotel, Ikoyi.

It was cool and practical, with just the right dose of fancy to make for a great evening out with friends.

If you're about Ikoyi, you should try it out. For drinks, for food, for ambience and for style.

SMILE BACK.

As you would imagine, as I took her photos, I had to smile back.

Infectious vibe.

Cheers.




TATOOED.

I've been known to be EXTRA averse to pain.

Back in University, everyone was getting additional ear piercings because...youth. I went along with my tribe of "wild and free" friends and I just baulked at the thought of the stinging pain, and ran away. Far away.

Now tattoos...I could never.

I do admire a person that can.



COMFORT IN TRADITION.

The traditional male African attire is timeless and lucky for the generations of men gone and those to come, African outfits integrate comfort and tradition quite perfectly.

HAFYMO.

She's the modest style blogger I can always count on to give a me photo worthy moment.



QUIRK!

Embodiment of individuality.





SKIRTING THE ISSUE.

As seen at Mente De Moda yesterday.

MENTE DE MODA...AGAIN.

I was at Mente De Moda again today.

I enjoy going there, what can I say? It's the "Buy Nigerian" gift that keeps on giving.

If you're around Lagos and you're looking for where to find decent bargains of a fine variety of locally crafted goods and services, then you MUST attend the next Mente. It happens one Sunday every month, I think.

Today I went with the son, we had waffles and ice cream and milkshakes and we shopped and we took photos of interesting subjects.

We thought her cute.

Cheers.
