In Her Closet – Episode 20 – PR Guru, Bukky Karibi Whyte

In Her Closet – Episode 20 – PR Guru, Bukky Karibi Whyte

I don’t know if it’s the Bulls head we both share as Taurean women or just sheer admiration for being driven by her passion, but my love for Bukky Karibi Whyte, founder of the Bobby Taylor Company has grown since 2013 when she was a judge on the Mo’s search TV program on Ebony Life TV. From luxury and lifestyle to the corporate sector and then music and entertainment, she has been able to bridge the gap between her clients and their targeted audience with her expertise, making her the no 1 go to girl in the world of Public Relations. I’m not really here to outline all her achievements even though I can’t help but mention she has Estée Lauder, MAC Cosmetics and SPAR as some of her many clients. Getting into her shoe closet was a whole new revelation as to what fashion and then footwear fashion means to her… Enjoy!!! E-INTERVIEW WITH BUKKY JAY: What does style mean to you? BUKKY: Style means creating and having a unique identity seen through your clothing or accessories. JAY: From a place of fashion and all the new trends that spring up everyday, how stylish will you say you are? BUKKY: I say that i am super stylish. I love fashion! I am daring with my fashion and I wear what I am comfortable in.  JAY: You’re a PR consultant which includes the lifestyle and luxury,corporate and entertainment sectors, how important is fashion and style in branding? BUKKY: Extremely important. Perception is everything and so how you look and dress is exactly how you will be addressed.   JAY:... read more
Shoesday Tuesday With Amina Muaddi of the Oscar Tiye Brand!!!

Shoesday Tuesday With Amina Muaddi of the Oscar Tiye Brand!!!

I love Amina Muaddi, simple. She’s a footwear designer (obviously… Lol!) with Arabian descents but grew up in Italy. She has the Cliche growing up wearing her mum’s shoes tales and had always known her passion lay in that line. Of course she took the plunge and followed her dreams to the end living her life intentionally.  And today we celebrate the beautiful designs that have become the brand “Oscar Tiye”. Inspired by the Arabian culture, the Jamila sandals replicate the henna tattoo and the Malikah sandals represent the body of a scarab ( a sacred Arabian symbol). It’s really intriguing the things that inspire the creativity in artists especially foot wear designers… Straight to the designs, check them out below…   And more from the 2017 Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter collection. She introduced new colors, silhouettes and... read more
Diary Of A Shoe Lover – Episode 6 – The Great Intervention

Diary Of A Shoe Lover – Episode 6 – The Great Intervention

Episode 5 here… Dear Diary, *Sigh*… Shame will not even let me clock in here. I have really been humbled. The other night at Ai’s house, i got an E-mail alert from my bank, turns out my account balance could not buy me a one way ticket to Abuja, and payday was still about 20 days away. I couldn’t mention it to the girls. Going through my statement, it turns out all my money had been going recklessly on shoes. To think i still had debts to pay. I have no savings, no investments, no back up and i work so hard and earn so well. My parents must not know about this, they wouldn’t let me hear the last of it. My dad would be so so disappointed. Damn, i bet you are too. Thank God for Hakeem whose advice redeemed me. I have a lot of work to do on my finances. A whole lot of work. Meanwhile, plans for Ivie’s wedding is underway, her dad wants to get it done as soon as possible. Surprisingly, they agreed on something small both for the bride price payment and the church wedding. It will be my first time in Benin and i’m looking forward to it. After seeing my account balance in black and white, i literally went into freeze mode. I had less than N25,000 in heaven and on earth plus debts that were way over that amount which i had incurred sub-consciously buying this and that and most especially footwear. I managed to keep it together for the rest of the night with the girls, and i couldn’t... read more

Shoesday Tuesday: For The Love Of Gucci

Shoesday Tuesday: For The Love Of Gucci

In the past few weeks I’ve seen so much love from Gucci with all the personal shoppers I follow on the gram from their bags to their shoes. The great thing about being a personal shopper especially a luxury personal shopper is that you get to see all the amazing designs in all their glory, feel them and even wear them. Imagine if work is having to wake up and go to Saks or Barneys all day everyday picking out items for your clients… *sigh*. Anyway, I resigned myself to my online option of ogling the Gucci brand last night and knew I had to give those shoes a feature today. I’m not so much a bag person but I did see a few that got me like that. Enjoy… And More… And then the bags.. The bag lovers actually have a lot of arm candy going for them with Gucci. And because Luxury pieces were made for Nigerian ladies, here’s a few of our fashionistas that have been spotted rocking these pieces. Shout out to those whose closets are filled with these beauties and we don’t even have an idea. Well done Gucci, looks like nothing is stopping you now. Peace, love and more sass Xoxo... read more
Live From The Red Carpet: Grammys 2017

Live From The Red Carpet: Grammys 2017

I’m always excited about awards, foreign or local. I live for all the glamour and pizzaz that come with them. I would stay up all night just to see all the fashion from the red carpet. The Grammys is one of the biggest and most significant music awards of all times and of course with all the A-list Super stars, you expect to see the best from the designers in the fashion industry.. This for me is the highlight. Who wore what? It’s like getting to know them personally. I didn’t watch this years awards though but going through the rounds on the internet all day, these are some of my favorite footwear from the 2017 Grammy Awards. I hope to catch a re run soon. Congrats to all the winners… Peace, love and more shoes Xoxo... read more
