Styling And Shoe Review

Atlanta based Nigerian style influencer and blogger, Monica Awe Etuk is my style crush today. What strikes me the most about her is the way she can make one fashion item look like you've never seen it before even after she has worn it a couple of times and more.

Beauty and Fashion Entrepreneur, Veronica Odeka of Vane style and CEO of Nigeria's leading nail polish brand Vane Polish knows her onions when it comes to styling.

A former model, her sense of style is a breath of fresh air as she knows how to incorporate her colors and textures be it for a red carpet, corporate or casual look.

Dear Diary,

I had a good day today. Work happened smoothly, i turned in the project report just in time to meet up with my deadline. Mr Deinde commended me, yes the Mr Deinde. On my way home, i passed by Sole Divas Store sha... *Sigh*, i know i promised not to buy any shoes till March, but the shoes on display, Lord have mercy, the perfect  color and the price was just right. I couldn't resist jo, besides how would i reward myself for my hard work. i even think i may get a raise, so that will compensate. Anyway, that was the highlight of my day. Let me go and try on my new shoes, i must rock them tomorrow biko. Good night!

My name is Salewa Oni and i am a hopeless, irredeemable shoe lover. When i left home for work this morning, I had exactly 253 pairs of shoes. My latest Kurt Geiger bow pumps now brings the count to 254 pairs. Welcome to my world.

   In honor of her recent Golden Globe Awards, my Woman Crush this beautiful Wednesday is Tracee Ellis Ross.

She was in Reed Between The Lines, Daddy's Little Girls, Hanging Up and I see you.com. You must at least have watched one of these.

It's been a long year for many of us. And especially here in Nigeria, we can't deny the fact that the recession is biting hard. There's been a lot of shoe reviews on the blog and so many foot candy released through the year. Of course many shoe lovers have had to break bank just to get a pair or 2 of their favorite designers. And with the less expensive pairs, it's still been a struggle with the sky rocketing exchange rates.

Whoop whoop, it's December, one of my favorite months of the year. I'm in the holiday mood right now and wrapping up the year to better focus on the year to come. It will be a bit slow on the blog but remember to follow us on all our social media pages.  It's Christmas party season. What better reason to think shoesssss.... As usual there'd be a lot of events this holiday - from house parties to pool parties, end of year office gigs, fashion shows, concerts and anything you can think of. So I drew up a wish list of some of my favorite luxury shoes that scream Christmas. Here we go, [caption id="attachment_3252" align="aligncenter" width="650"]b7aebd27bb648bf13d726011884f3545 These Sophia Websters scream pool side fun paired with an all white outfit and over size sunglasses with a tall glass of Pina Colada....[/caption]   [caption id="attachment_3257" align="aligncenter" width="407"]nmx2wp0_mu Sophia Webster[/caption]
