Another Sunday in London where one is so confused as to what to wear.. staying true to its name, it’s soooooo ☀️ sunny but I can’t go skimpy because, holy mass. It’s good enough that it’s frowned upon to wear pants or not cover hair at my church, can’t now be showing too much skin. This piece by @demurebydenike not only provide me with fresh air possibilities, the fit is just decent and perfect for the house of God. The only thing I’d have to deal with is the compliments and ‘where did you get this’ questions from the folks every time I’m in an African print.
Are we still buying Nigerian while in the UK? Of course we are. I recently shot some pieces with model, Irene of @i_am_taj in ankara outfits by @t4turban in London. Ranging from £10 – £40, there is definitely something for everyone. Being in England if you’re not paying through your nose for some African feel, you’d probably not be getting anything good. This brand has totally proved that wrong and excited my nerves. The finishing of their sewing got me so excited and happy to publish on this platform.
Here are some photos from the shoot.. You can find the rest of the photos on @retrogypsie. Click here to shop directly on their store. Feel free to message me instagram, email, twitter etc) as well for your ankara needs. View Post
This is my debut #HowToStyle post. I’d try to inculcate videos in the next one. On this post, is he showing ways to wear the Mai Atafo jumper I spotted during the last London Fashion Week (AW17).
How was your weekend? Got some new bits on the gram right now. These varsity pieces modeled by Irene of @i_am_taj_ were shot by myself at the Barbican Center. They feature crop tops (£5), vests and shirts (£10). Prices excludes postage. Always shop responsibly..repair, reuse and research ethical brands. Xx
The Red Crop
On Saturday I attended the Black British Bloggers Socials event. Passed through London Bridge twice before the unfortunate incident occurred that evening. Anyways, the event was alright, saw a couple brands, purchased an item (#KINK by @cultureUK) the booklet had tons of positive affirmations totally great for my Instagram captions…and then I listened to the last talk by Nicola Millington of #FPComms, totally loved this. Met a fashion enthusiast, Tee of @teeplusgod, #newFriend 😍. Invited her to the @Bloggerpoint event this Saturday x
