Pom Poms, Feathers And Fur Because It’s Tuesday And It’s Shoesday.

No more just a pair of in house footwear, the Pom Pom, feathers and fur shoe trend is one that has come to stay as a fashion statement piece. From Carrie Bradshaw’s Dolce and Gabanna Fur Sandals featured in the HBO Sex And The City series to Paul Andrew’s 2017 Fall/Winter Feather sandals at the 2017 New York Fashion Week, the trend has evolved over the years and looks like it’s going no where.   From the high end luxury designers to the high street brands, there is a pair for everyone and because it’s Tuesday and it’s shoes day, here are some amazing designs that would make you want to jump on this trend. They are the perfect way to put some sass and details to a seemingly boring outfit.         There’s so many styles with this trend and after much debate on personal choices, i hopped on a pair. For the high end designers, you will part with $500 upwards while the high street brands sell for between $30 and $100 (N10,000 and above). You can shop for this trend HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE depending on what you’re looking for. And of course from the retail side of life with Sole Divas. Best part is with a pair of barely there sandals or plain pumps you want to add some vibes to, you can make a pair of your own and save some cash. In these easy picture steps i got from DAMASK LOVE, you are well on your way to adding some sass to your footwear closet.          ...

#IssaThrow Back To My First Official Fashion Outing

Social media for me has been one of the best things in terms of networking and knowing a lot more about the fashion world generally. From Instagram to Pinterest, Twitter and even Facebook, the wealth of knowledge i have acquired is amazing. Being away from the fashion capital of the country would have slowed me down a lot but for the blessing of social media. I have wanted to attend the Lagos Fashion and Design Week for 4 years in a row and the distance just never made it work. But every Instagram post made me feel like i didn’t miss a thing.
