Bon Voyage

I'm in love with everything Grace Bol, from figure to face, she is definitely one of my favourite models. I was so happy to find her sporting pastels and funky prints in Bon Voyage for W Magazine! Even the backdrops and props were vibrant and fun (very artsy fartsy), I love it! I'm not quite sure what makes me more excited though... the fact that Grace Bol is sporting these ensembles or the fact that I could see Solange killing the game in every single one of them. Nevertheless, Grace Bol modeling in, "Bon Voyage" *audience claps and stage lights go off*

Prom? I'm Good

If I've learned anything about myself since moving here, it is that I am not much of a party person. I'm not big on minuscule events like homecoming and Sadies Hawkins. Obviously, prom is another story, but even so... I'm not keen on attending that either. This is my junior year in high school, and I've already set my mind on skipping this year's and attending the one next year (BECAUSE SENIOR).

I'm not going: 1. Because I don't see myself having a date, 2. I don't see myself saying yes to any guy I know, 3. Because the last couple of proms have been lame, and that is a lot of money to be wasting on washed out songs and glamorous dresses. This does not mean I don't indulge in hopeless dreaming of the perfect prom dress. I personally am not fond of the typical shape and cuts people have been sporting over the years... I prefer something more along the lines of Valentino. Below are some photos of Valentino dresses I would HAPPILY sport for prom next year!

Wild Wonder

It seems as though every time I make a post it starts off with an apology for being so neglectful towards the blog, but this will not be one of those posts. This time we're just going to grab the bull by it's horns! (I think that's how the term goes)

For starters my love, Solange Knowles, recently had an unadorned wedding in an unforgettable fashion (literally); from the guest list to her white jumpsuit, I was smitten. I've never been more happy/jealous over someone else's wedding! Solange being the queen of just about everything juggled planning her wedding as well as the creation of her second collaboration with Puma for another footwear collection entitled "Wild Wonder." 
It was only an amount of time before Solange would grace us with another collection, especially after the major success with Girls of Blaze this past February. 
The newest collection is a take on PUMA's iconic styles, the XT2 and the classic PUMA Suede. With the help of previous designers: Gerlan Marcel, Hisham Bharoocha, and sister duo Darlene and Lizzy Okpo, they pulled off a vibrant collection with an array of natural fabrics, colours, and prints. 

New addition to the Christmas List? I think so.

can you feel my love buzz?

Living in the US and having some of my favourite magazines in the UK has to be one of the most frustrating things ever. When I lived in Lagos my dad brought back i-D magazines for me to drool over until his next flight to London, now... not so much.
I have been living vigorously through i-D's website (very stoked for the new features to come) for this past year and I recently stumbled upon an editorial, 'can you feel my love buzz?' they did starring Xiao Wen Ju (one of my favourite models). I have searched all over for the designer responsible  for these idiosyncratic ensembles, but failed miserably. If anyone does have an idea of who the designer may be, do let me know!
