tumblr_mmj6qq4C5s1s5ilpoo1_500Hey Guys!

You have no idea how excited I was when I noticed all this Plastic, PVC and Perspex sashaying the runway, sidewalks and TV. Yes Lord!

What I absolutely love about this trend is how well it COMPLETELY fits into our present season in Nigeria. The rains are back with a vengeance but it’s still too warm to wear wool. So how’s a girl to keep dry?

Go Plastic!

ImageStraight from the Valentino S/S 2013 show. I love the PVC Rockstud pumps. Dear God, Upgrade my bank balance.

Image Fearless Fashionista, Rita Ora rocked this trend on a night out in London recently.

ImageMy sister-in-my-head, Solange – never one to miss a beat – tried the trend by accessorizing with this CC Skye Bright Love Lucite ClutchImage And again, with this Charlotte Olympia London 2012 Pandora Perspex Clutch.

ImageI must say, while watching the HBO hit show Girls (which I love), there were very few fashion choices that made my heart beat fast. Until this. This custom-made dress by the show’s costume designer, Jenn Rogien worn by Marnie (Allison Williams) DEFINITELY made my heart race. Sidenote: If you love(d) Sex and The City, you’ll like Girls. Check on it.ImageAlso hitting the Tv screens with this trend was Robin My-Baby’s-Daddy Thicke in his new Music video featuring Pharell and T.I.. Bonus: If you’re pervy like me and want to see the NSFW version of the video, here you go.

What do you think guys?

Will you try the trend?

Quickie: of the Met Gala and Kim Kardashian

I’m so hyped over the MET Gala tonight. I CANNOT wait to see the red carpet photos.

I’m happy (kinda) that Kim Kardashian FINALLY gets to attend (albeit as Kanye’s date) after all these years of being snubbed by Mama Wintour.

I understand why she’d get snubbed time after time but let’s be serious, in terms of commercial success, Kim Kardashian is a celebrity that sells. Anything she wears is snatched up from the stores by women everywhere. That’s a plus for fashion.

Right?

With Love,

This Is Why I Love Alber Elbaz….

Alber Elbaz 2010_6_alberelbaz

I like first class, but I don’t like first class people – I prefer the people in coach

As much as I love fashion in its entirety, one thing that makes me go “hmm….” which a lot of people tend to turn a blind eye to is the seemingly pretentiousness of “Fashion people”. *This, I’ll probably rant about in a future post.*

Israeli designer, Alber Elbaz is far from being one of those people. He is one of the most modest, realistic, down-to-earth and head-screwed-on-right “Fashion Person” I’ve had the pleasure to read about, thus far.

I first read about him a few years ago and fell in love with his story. His struggle to get to the top in  his career against all odds is truly one that inspires me. In case you don’t know, He is the Head Designer for the legendary fashion house, Lanvin and my mentor, guardian and friend in my head. Do i sound crazy?
