RE BAHIA "MEET ME IN LAGOS" CAPSULE COLLECTION

I am not about to add "fashion critic" to my resume,so imma keep this review short and straight to the point.
The Re Bahia "meet me in lagos" capsule collection was everything i expected and maybe more. The designer, Orire Omatshola, inspired by the 50s and 60s ticked all the boxes in my head which were Attention to detail,Execution and Femininity. In the capsule collection,she played with different fabric like silk,lace,velvet and i think..satin!
The signature Re bahia stamp was visible in some of the pieces.  the pieces were gorgeous and it took the Strength of God to keep me from tackling down the models and running away with the pieces.


I was born,christened,baptised and schooled to wear THIS dress. Holy smokes!

Side-view. Now you get the hype?


Definitely gorgeous.

Loved this look.


Close-up!



Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Gorgeous!

LOVE!





The designer, Orire Omatshola


And it's a wrap!

CLOTHES OFF MY RACK;- REBAHIA PRESENTATION

Back again...
As most of y'all know.. I am on house arrest. My mother ensures we all stay inside to prevent harm during this festive season,but mehn... I sneaked out. LOL
The Rebahia fashion presentation was too good to miss. I said my prayers and set off.
for the new year.. i have decided to abandon the braids and do something else. i need to let my hair grow,so i switched back to my second signature look.
I am also trying to stop my signature "raccoon" heavy lined eyes and red lips. I am sure it will be hard for me to quit that,but i did a different makeup for the event.


I tried the colour-blocking trend on my eyes and went for a cool lip colour with blush and applied bronzer to make my face and neck pop.
i hope i got it right because i aint no makeup guru. *sighs*









The small chops was yummy and the drinks kept coming. The skirt was actually one of the pieces to be sold at the Elsie Vintage January blog sale,but i had nothing to wear. Definately the last time i am gonna be getting high on my own *beep*. LOL

ALMOST NEW YEAR!



Yeah.. That's my face right now.
I am so restless.. and i hate it when i become restless.
The new year is almost here and i aint done writing my goals and New year resolutions. (okay.. maybe just one resolution. LOL)
I am more freaked out because my Goal/To-do list aint full yet. i know i am not done writing it.. but i need it to be complete before the 31st of December. *sighs*
2011 has been a good year... a good year for me indeed.
It wasn't perfect but i learnt from my mistakes.. Things i wanted to do,i done did it.
I am grateful to God for everything and you should be too.. be grateful that you are alive, hunnay!
Enough with the talk.. i wanna share random pictures because i am too restless. :)
