Hey ya! How did your week go? And I hope you all are in serious ‘fashion fab’ mode this weekend! It is less talk with me today, so I will go straight to it!

Getting ready for an evening outing and are clueless on the direction to go this season? Well here’s the map to guide you! ENJOY!!!

1) THE COLOUR BLOCK DRESS: The LBD hasn’t lost its charm for an evening occasion, but,this season if you are ready to steal more than a glance from the eyes of admirers, a bold colour is the way to go!

2) GRECIAN: Want to feel like an ancient Greek goddess, all powerful and flawlessly beautiful...then get draped in Grecian style evening dresses!

3) SOFT FLOATY MATERIAL: Fabric trends this season reveal silky satins, lace, bead fringe, cutwork and semi-sheer fabric that are set against transparent wisps of materials that float and mesmerize!

4) EMBROIDERY/ EMBELLISHMENTS: Glam yourself up for an evening occasion with an embroidered or embellished dress. They give a hint of vintage and an aura of class!

5) RUFFLES: Nothing can be more feminine and romantic than ruffles. With tiered ruffles, you’ll always look…very sultry, very chic!

All dresses featured can be purchased at


* p.s: yellow!!!..emnn..makes her look a bit too CHEAP for me...and for the record, that is officially the ugliest bag I have seen in a long while!!!


That's all folks, keep the weekend spirit alive! I know this is late, but congratulations DAVID COOK!! See you when I see you and remember to always keep your fashion freak on!

Hey! I always wanted to do something on Campus fashion and which other university would I go to….hmmnnn….let me think….The University of Lagos! I decided to bring Unilag fashion to you all through the eyes of a researcher…The Thing is you hear a lot, you see a little…but then, you now know…the real truth… you be the judge...ENJOY!!!

*Titi’s * fashion review:

When I was assigned by Miss NFF to do a campus fashion review on Unilag, I was out of my skin excited. I thought it would be very insightful. I remember the talks, the gist about their dressing; mini-skirt wearing, high-heels clicking, gum chewing, hair twisting and eye rolling personas and couldn’t wait to see it for myself, gosh! Was I shocked!

It took me ages to figure out what to wear. I knew how I wanted to look; obviously fashionable, wanted to create some attention of my own with my look before I did with my recorder and camera. So I opted to go for a bright multi-coloured print blouse, black skinny jeans, a red leather big bag, huge shades and my bronze metallic sandals.

I had a few friends in Unilag, so I called them up days before to brief them on my mission and was counting on them to lead me, I knew no one, but with them I knew quite a lot. As the sole of my feet landed on the solid grounds of the Unilag campus, with my hands placed firmly on my hips, chest out, I took a deep breath and a quick glance….hmmnn…nothing extraordinary! Yes, I was in for a real shock…let me rephrase…a revelation!

The sun was blazing hot, and as one of my friend commented, the ozone layer is eminently non-existent on the skies surrounding the Unilag campus. Wondering how I would survive under such heat considering I had a whole lot of walking to do, getting a cold drink down my spine was the first agenda of the day!

As we (my friends and I) sat down at the shawama spot near The Queen Amina hostel, eating, drinking and generally chatting, beside us was a car which in that very instant had turned to a clothing store as bags of nylons were filled with clothes in the latest fashion…my friend was able to get her hands on a high-waist stretch denim three-quarters…lucky she!

With a zest for life, and enthusiasm I got down to business….I have to admit, people were a bit!, not a bit, they were etremely hesitant! They all felt they weren’t properly dressed….like duh!!..that's the whole point, come when unexpected! Some turned me to their camera woman…making me take their photo repeatedly until they thought I had the best shot….

I had taken a few photos, but nothing dramatic, my hopes to get a juicy report on scandalous dressing and fashion disasters was demeaning and I needed to know why!

‘They don’t allow us to wear tank tops, it is an offence to wear tank tops, and a female teacher will actually embarrass you, send you out of her class or give you public disgrace. Tubes, spag starps, tank tops, anything off, you have to at least cover the top, maybe and cap sleeve will do’

This response from my friend was all I needed, although the rules are a little extreme, but I understood. The rules may be a bit too restrictive but one thing it taught the girls on the campus was that being fashionable also means being able to dress suitably to an occasion; something which they had neglected; although, everyone seemed to be wearing the same thing, but as I strolled around the campus taking pictures I only discovered a more fashion conscious students strutting the everyday chic look to the fullest!
