Blogging about this one was tricky. You see, I can't promote Poosh because there's no such thing as a free lunch in life, but I want to talk about Re Bahia and they're stocked at Poosh. Why do I want to talk about Re Bahia? Well, back when I was in uni, I had the biggest crush on the creative director, Orire. Everytime I saw her in the library I would gravitate towards her. I was hers for emotional expenditure, but she didn't use me. I don't have a crush on her anymore, but I'd be lying if I didn't admit to having a little bit of a sweet spot when it comes to her. She sent me the following invitation:
The vast majority of you may not remember her minimal dreams collection because she showed it at Lagos Fashion and Design Week last year. Here's a quick reminder.
I love how clean and soft the pieces from minimal dreams are. There's an ease to them that I feel will speak to a wide range of women. I also like that the clothes are only as modest as you want them to be. The designs themselves may not be that ground breaking, but, the brand provides staples that the modern wardrobe should not be without. I've got shots of the clothes as they walked down the runway, but they aren't very good, and my mac's being fixed, so you shan't see them just yet.
Anyway, let's get on to the who was there and the what the what happened while they were there.
|I chose this one because of Feyi. I keep going on about her skin, but I only do it because it's true. Black really is beautiful.|
|Clap for me. Clap for me I say. It's a classic.|
|And this right here is Lisa of Jewel by Lisa's shoe game. Her shoe game is deep.|
|Zara Okpara's bag... nice, nice... I don't knead to say much. Yes knead. Yes. Shut up. I've got to keep myself entertained.|
|The wizardry is in the detail. It's conservative, and it's clean. #rebahia for the win.|
|These shoes were on SATC. Na Afam Spot am. When I say that people in Lagos are moneyed, don't look at me like I don't know what I'm talking about.|
Not every picture got a paragraph beneath it, and I didn't hate anything. After picking up my hatchet and attacking people at random, I've decided to put it back in its box. No dollar no hatchet. And not on the Ramblings of a Madman. I'll do it for your magazine, or your website or sommat like that. Later Famzers.
