CLOTHES OFF MY RACK;- SUGAR AND SPICE.

Hello Everyone,
Amazing week so far,aye.??
Sunday was a very pleasant day for me..
2Face,the Nigerian Artist was performing live at an event held together for him by my boss,Noble Igwe and i couldn't hold my excitement. i am sure most of my international readers know who 2Face is. :)
Okay,I went to the event with my friend, Ifeanyi. It was tough looking for what to wear because recently,if an outfit ain't comfortable enough.. i wouldn't wear it. 
I settled for this sheer top and neon green skirt. to be truthful,that ain't a sheer top.. its actually a sheer play-suit and i styled it to look like a top. i was amazed that the whole outfit came out lovely.
HERE ARE THE PICTURES;-
PLAYSUIT;- GIFT FROM ARIETA MUJAY
BANDAGE SKIRT;- ATMOSPHERE
EARRINGS;- VINTAGE
HEADWRAP;- TIED IT ON MYSELF



MY FRIEND,IFEANYI;-

The next day was a pretty lazy day.. no school.. no work.. NOTHING..!!!
I decided to go visit a coupla friends and i wore this "WANA SAMBO" halter neck gown.. it was a gift from the designer and its so comfortable.

HUGS,KISSES,AND LOVE,

ESTELLE'S DRESS BY KORTO MOMOLU- ARISE MAGAZINE FASHION WEEK.


After a long day of fashion shows at the Arise magazine fashion week,Day 3, Estelle came on stage to cap the night off. After she sang, “ONE LOVE” and “SUBSTITUTE LOVER’,I kinda zoned out. Pardon me, I am not a Fan..!! *shrugs*
 Her dress on stage was lovely. The dress made by KORTO MOMOLU is a two toned green asymmetrical dress and The colour gave her complexion a pop. She paired the dress with a turban and fabulous orange wedges.
As a fashion Styling assistant, I had to deliver the dress back to the designer and got the chance to take few pictures of the intricate details on the dress.
The designer,KORTO MOMOLU is an American/Liberian citizen and project runway,season 5 finalist. she was also selected by the panel of judges to be among the 50 designers who showcased their F/W collection during ARISE MAGAZINE FASHION WEEK.
Enjoy the pictures:-
