BIRTHDAY DINNER & ART AT FOUR POINTS


Good evening guys. I hope you've all had a great start to your week. Last week Sunday, I was at a private dinner celebrating my friend's younger sister's 21st Birthday and It was such a lovely and intimate celebration.

 She hosted her dinner party at Four Points Hotel in Victoria Island Lagos. The hotel is a part of the Sheraton hotels chain and like any respectable luxury hotel, it boasts some fairly tasteful and impressive art work and of course a decent menu, which is kind what we were there for.

While the food was alright, I was mostly taken by the art pieces hanging on the wall, the carvings and all the other little decor pieces that pulled the whole room together and enhanced the ambiance. I'm starting to notice a trend in luxury hotels in Nigeria of using art work as the primary focus of interior design concepts and I absolutely love it.

60's and 70's CASUAL CHIC



Good Evening guys. For some weird reason gadgets seem to have a vendetta against me and this time the culprit is my laptop. It's been at the repair shop for a week no doubt to punish me. So I have resorted to publishing this post from my camera. 

This fashion season is very much about a rendition of 60's and 70's fashion, so I decided to draw a little inspiration from the brightest and best in fashion straight off the runway for my look.

Playing around with a basic white top and ripped jeans, i infused some of that 70's style hippie vibe to my look with a brown fringe vest. Tapping into the wilder side of the 60's,  I paired the vest with leopard print platform sandals and kept the look chic and updated with a straight hair do, minimal make-up and my fav sunnies.

LONDON FASHION WEEK: CHRISTOPHER KANE, MARY KATRANTZOU, MATTHEW WILLIAMSON & ERDEM


Saving the best for last.....For the finale of London Fashion week on Sapphire Brushstrokes,  it's Christopher Kane, Matthew Williamson and of course 2 of my favourites Mary Katrantzou and Erdem. 

I won't bore you with a long runthrough  of each collection simply because I think all  four collections  speak for themselves, each in a strong, distinctand artistic voice and collectively, in a bright, fearless and bold baritone. There was nothing about these last four collections I did not love. 

Next up Paris......
