Woman Crush Wednesday – Bolanle Olukanni’s 90’s Inspired Party

Woman Crush Wednesday – Bolanle Olukanni’s 90’s Inspired Party

Bolanle Olukanni was one of my two favorite contestants for the Mo’s search competition on Ebony Life TV’s auditions for Co Hosts of the Moments With Mo program. It was the first time i heard anything about her and in four years of being on TV, becoming a compere, actress and over all a media personality, she has won my heart and that of many other people. What i love the most about her is her level of growth and the confidence she exudes. Fun loving yet reserved, full of laughter yet conservative but never afraid to tread new territories, she has made the world her own, leaving no stones unturned as it comes to her career. A Leo by birth, she had one of the most fun parties i had seen on social media in a while – #Bolanles90sjam Growing up in the 90’s myself, the decade of Aliyah, Da Brat, Foxy Brown and co, that was one party i would have loved to attend. It was a 90’s inspired themed party and the details that went into achieving it was a 100%. She’s that girl that can go from rachet looking to sexy and sultry and back to take home to mama in a switch. From a transformed body to a constantly upgraded closet , Bolanle is many shades beautiful. That party and the many times over the years that she has killed the fashion game on and off the red carpet plus her sass, wit and down to earth nature is why this stunner is my Woman Crush this Wednesday. All the cool kids came out to play, from Mimi Onalaja...

It’s been 20 amazing episodes of In Her Closet and i’m thankful for every single interview. Meeting these amazing women and getting a sneak peek into their closets. It’s the start of another season and it’s going to be another round of fabulous women in every sector sharing their style tips and closet secrets. The Cerebral Lemon co, owned by Ex-beauty Queen of the 1998 Miss Lux  beauty pageant, Mrs Ifeoma Williams is a company that constantly seeks to positively influence the perceptions and opinions of African audiences by connecting them to excellent media content. I didn’t quite pay attention to the vast difference between being a stylist and an image consultant until my interview with her. I was more than honored when she granted me this interview. A trained lawyer, a mom of 2 boys, a wife and professional in her image consulting passion now turned career, Ifeoma Williams exudes style with very classy vibes. Giving credit to the Jackie Kennedy Era as her style influence, the Ex BeautyQueen shares a few things with me on this Episode of IN HER CLOSET. Enjoy!!! E-INTERVIEW WITH MRS IFEOMA WILLIAMS JAY: You are an epitome of style, what does style mean to you?   IFEOMA: Style is often misunderstood to mean strictly “dress style”. For me, Style is all encompassing and more than pure appearance. It is the conveyance of an aura of distinction that is hard to define but easy to recognize. JAY: Jackie Kennedy is your style icon, that’s style in the 50’s – 60’s, there were hats (which I’ve seen you love by the way) and bright colors, geometric designs and structures… What...

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?

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...
