Styling And Shoe Review

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.

This post is inspired by my fitfam sister, Aramide. She was confused as to what shoes to pick between the Louboutin Iriza Glitter D'orsay pumps and Manolo Blahnik Hangisi pumps. If you know me well, i have a very soft spot for Louboutin and Manolo Blahnik follows very closely. But i'd almost always go with a Louboutin design.   [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="300"]Image result for Louboutin black mid heel glitter dorsay pumps Iriza D'orsay Pumps[/caption]   [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="300"]Image result for Manolo Blahnik Hangisi mid heel Hangisi 70MM Satin Pumps[/caption]

Long time, no post. I'm having the busiest month ever but 9 days of no blogging and it doesn't feel right. It haunts me when i remember i haven't been here and i have so many articles to post, *sigh*. I actually had a dream i was being chased by people asking me why i left them hanging, hahahaha. No it's not that serious. Anyway, let me share with you guys the craziest and weirdest shoes I've seen around  the web.

This is officially the first His Perspective post and it features the owner of Made in Nigeria footwear brand "Senators Footwear", Adeyeye Awope.  [caption width="640" id="attachment_7598" align="aligncenter"] Yeye in his brand slippers[/caption] I'd be reviewing a pair of slippers I got from the brand for the hubs and our boys, a few months ago. I held out on this post for a few months to have enough time to see how much wear and tear the slippers could withstand.  Here's my verdict: Quality- I like that the slippers were neatly made and for their price tag, the material is durable and from very frequent wear especially by the hubs, we haven't had to go to the cobblers for a fix. There was a lift in leather off the sole on my sons pair but that is probably one out of many.  Comfort and fit: All I had to do was provide the universal U.K. Size for the 3 of them and was specific about making Le Hubs pair a wide fit and they fit just right. My younger son's pair were a bit loose initially because I had picked a size up but now they fit perfectly.  Affordability: The brand promises to bring you affordable luxury. At the time I placed my orders, I got the boys' pairs at N7,000 each and Le hubs pair for N12,000.  Delivery was prompt and packaging was well thought out. Overall I'd rate the brand 7.5. Over the months, I have seen new designs and there's something for the female folks too.  Our interview cannot be missed, enjoy below.  E Interview with Yeye Awope JAY: What is style to you?? YEYE: For me Style is a way of life. It is what differentiates you from the next person. I also believe in comfort and luxury. I believe in keeping it simple, classy and trendy. JAY: What inspired your going into producing footwear? YEYE: I love shoes. What is that line that goes, by their feet you shall know them...

This post is inspired by an Instagram post i saw yesterday. It was of the Dolce and Gabanna Spring 2017 Fringe Sandals. I found them really fun and realized they were still trending since 2015 that they became a hit. [caption width="501" id="attachment_7025" align="aligncenter"]FullSizeRender (89) As seen on Instagram[/caption] [caption width="510" id="attachment_7018" align="aligncenter"]11933907-Black-7c05d2dc- Spring 2017 Fringe pumps[/caption] [caption width="500" id="attachment_7019" align="aligncenter"]11933907-Black-d43a7583- D & G[/caption]They are an absolutely fun way to make a statement with your shoes. You can't but get noticed with a pair like these. Many other brands have had their designs, some keeping it simple, others going wild with it.

I know I've never really paid attention to men's shoes since I started this blog and that is mostly because I don't know so much about the rules that govern styling them. I see the ones I like, I admire and I move on. My hubby is a sneaker head, 4 out of every 5 of his shoes are a pair of sneakers so i'm more inclined to them. [caption id="attachment_6988" align="aligncenter" width="640"] Lace up Sneakers[/caption] But today, I won't be talking female fashion, I'd be sharing some of the most popular male shoe styles. This should help if you're looking to get your significant other, dad, boss or brother footwear. See Also: Sneaker Heads

I'm the biggest advocate for non-boring, non-conformist work shoes. I also believe that shoes should generally be sturdy and of good quality but not necessarily overly expensive. Irony? Coming from me who spends hours ogling luxury shoes, but when it comes down to budgeting, i go all out to get good bargains. You should read this post Anyway, from the Office, Paper doll, Little mistress, Miss KG, Carvela Kurt Geigernand Nine West brands, are some of the prettiest, very durable and affordable work shoes. They cost between £9 - £30 which going by the current exchange rate amount to about N6,000 - N20,000. Many of them are on sales which means fastest fingers first for the very popular sizes. This happened recently Take a look.

Episode 8 Here

Dear diary, 

Is this what being in love truly feels like or am I just being overly emotional?.. I can't even put my thoughts and feelings into writing, I'd be back later... Good night!!!

Less than a week to my birthday and none of my friends was back in town. And no, they wouldn't be making it down in time... I felt so empty and lonely. Ivie had sent me an early birthday present through one of her cousins. As much as I loved my new season Gucci princeton slippers, they could not fill the void I felt knowing i would be spending my birthday alone. A sudden fear gripped me at the thought of being alone forever.. I literally panicked. "Shally too cute, abi what's that your Whatsapp name?" My mum cut into my thoughts as she joined me on the dining table where I was having dinner.

In between changing diapers and sterilizing feeding bottles in addition to two toddlers and a husband, it's been a slow past couple of days here on the blog. Yesterday was International Women's Day and i had started drafting this post in my head but it never made it out of there. If idol worshiping wasn't a sin, women all over should be idolized. With the many hats we have to wear, it's amazing to see those who are achieving and breaking boundaries beyond the norm. This post is in recognition of successful women who in the midst of the chaos that comes with their career and family life also make it a point of duty to give back to society. The next big deal for me is their love for shoes which made them release their own collections/designs, some alone and others in collaboration with popular footwear designers.

Episode 7 here Dear Diary, I can't get over the lunch date i had today. This mumu Gbenga must really think highly of himself o. Very shallow thinker as well. I don't know how i managed 45 minutes with him and didn't hit his head with the bottle of red wine on the table. Imagine him saying no matter how accomplished a woman is, she must take her place in life as the second class citizen she is...
