Styling And Shoe Review

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.

Read Season 1, Episode 9 here "I have to go now" said Ivie, as she picked up her Gucci bag and car keys and gave me a peck on the cheek. "This Osas' school management can just be very over sabi, like they love the children more than we the parents. If we're more than 10 minutes late in picking them up, it's a  problem" She said, as she waved and walked towards the door of the restaurant where we just had lunch. It had been 5 years after her wedding to Eddy and Hakeem's proposal to me and so many things had happened. Ivie now had a 4 year old daughter and another baby on the way. Pregnancy suited her and she had stuck to her healthy habits all the way and she remained as fashionable as ever but in a more mature way. ivie lunch

I was listening to the 90's TLC's Waterfall a few days ago and remembered my friend Tosin, i remember we used to call her Ruka (From Rukayat, her muslim name) back then. Ruka and her siblings were the coolest kids on our street. She had older siblings in secondary school and the university and if i wasn't in school or in my house, then i was at theirs. 23a0d61299af31e6106a5b44cc31ff2c.1000x1000x1 Ruka and her sister Yemi, who we were all age mates, had access to every fashionable piece you could think of and they became my real time fashion icons. My love for shoes most likely started from the womb, because even at age 6/7, i remember hopelessly taking in the structure of their clogs and jelly sandals and running home to ask my mum to buy me a pair.

Flared heels aren't a new trend, they've been around for many years and this is evident with these Yves Saint Lauren Pumps from the 80s. As the name implies, they are heels that flare out at the bottom.

In pumps and sandals, there are way too many pairs to ogle and indulge in. Check these out...

It's been a really busy period for me this past few weeks. But i'm slowly but surely settling in and i must say it's really nice here so far. My kids have done two weeks of school, and between the Teachers and Parents, i must confess, their shoe game is up there (It comes naturally, shoes are the first thing i notice on any one).  Meanwhile, let's play catch up. I haven't been here as often, and my To Post list keeps getting longer, time is a huge factor me now as i haven' t settled into a routine but it gets better everyday and in no time, the posts will get back to being at regular intervals. Be the first to know that Diary Of a Shoe Lover Season 2 will be here next weekend. Be sure to catch up on the 9 Episodes of Season 1, if you haven't, so you're not left out. 5 years after, what has happened in the lives of Salewa, Ivie and Aishat? Find out next weekend *wink* Let me run you through quickly on what went down in the months of March and April.... (Click on the highlighted links)

It's one of the most exciting yearly events for me because it's purely fashion oriented, it's said to be the GRAMMY of fashion. And with a theme to guide each year, many celebrities show up prepared. Last year was themed Manus x Machina: Age of technology This year was in honor of Rei Kawakubo, the Japanese avant-garde designer of Comme des garcon. [caption id="attachment_8486" align="aligncenter" width="611"] Rei Kawakubo[/caption] Her pieces are known to be beyond the norm leaning more towards Art, so I was curious to see who would be able to work that theme. 

I'm settling in nicely in Port Harcourt and i can feel the good vibes already. Still not enough time on my hands but i can't leave my favorite people, my fellow shoe lovers, hanging without a post. Going through Net A Porter last night, i saw they had in stock some of the shoes that hit the runway during fashion week for the release of the Spring 2017 footwear collection by some of my favorite designers, and i'm wondering which of these i will rock or splurge on if i could?

I need all the smileys i can get to express myself in this post. I'm physically and mentally drained but in a good way. Moving houses officially has to be the hardest thing ever. Even worse when it's inter state. So i guess what i'm saying is that I've just moved houses from Warri, Delta State to Port Harcourt City and the past few weeks have been work work work. It is a move I've anticipated for some time now so it's been happy kind of work. I'd share my excitement with you guys much later. And that explains why i have been absent.

One of the hardest parts of blogging is sharing your contents. I mean there are a gazillion blogs out there with amazing posts, it's overwhelming keeping up with all of them. But i was thinking to myself, i put up so many posts and trust me it takes a lot of time and effort to get it right. Of what use it is if no one is reading?

Seeing the price tags of these shoes made my heart race, like really??? As always, i was surfing the internet and came across an article on Dorothy of the Wizard of Oz, remember those her sparkly bright red shoes? I wanted a pair so bad when i was growing up. Related image I saw the price attached to them, apparently they are still available and being kept in a museum in Washington DC and it got me excited.
