RED DRESS + JEROME’S GARDEN VISIT + STRAW BAG GIVEAWAY

SUMMER RED DRESS

An easy red dress is a must-have in every girl’s wardrobe. Better still if it is a piece that doubles (or more) as a lounge wear, beach cover-up, date wear, casual wear, day dress for brunch or afternoon tea etc. This dress is the perfect example of everything that I’ve described and more. It’s stylish, cute and flirty and is also the perfect addition to your wardrobe for the upcoming holiday. The off-the-shoulder style and slightly puffy sleeves just take it up a notch. My tailor @oluchilkpemba really did an awesome job on this piece.

90’S FASHION

I love that fashion is cyclical and things never really go out of style. The 90’s fashion was dominated by edgy accessories and chokers were definitely at the fore-front. Chokers made a come-back a few seasons ago, and show no signs of leaving the fashion scene anytime soon.

I scored this cool choker for only N200 and I’ve been obsessed ever since.

GREY HAIR

To be honest, I have since taken out this hair, but it’s something I’m already thinking of doing again. I absolutely love how the grey (+white) braids add an element of edge to every outfit. It gives this bold presence, and tells everyone you’re not afraid to take risks in fashion, styling and life.

The quiff styling is adorable and easily balances sweetness and sassyness.

PIÈCE DE RÉSISTANCE: WICKER/STRAW BAG

This is the ‘it’ bag to wear for vacay vibes. It’s perfect for the beach or day outings. Beach bags have been on trend all year, and also show no signs of leaving soon. This straw bag is the perfect accessory to brighten up your outfit and elevate your look, especially with Christmas holiday fast approaching – the beach will become an even more popular hang-out spot.

 LOCATION SPOTLIGHT – JEROME’S GARDENS AND SUITES

My mum told me about Jerome’s Gardens and Suites, and one phone call later, it became the spot for my shoot. Jerome’s Gardens has been a spot for shoots and music videos for a while now. Hidden in a corner of Opebi Allen, it’s a place that you could easily drive by if you’re unaware of the gem that’s inside. The suites are adorable and affordable, and the outside surroundings are beautiful. I only got to use the small garden because the bigger garden was being renovated; which I’m sure will look amazing once it’s done.

GIVEAWAY

I’m really excited to be doing my first giveaway in celebration of this year’s thanksgiving holiday.

To enter the giveaway, simply tag 3 friends on my instagram (@mignolly) and tell me how you would style this bag. The winner will be chosen at random and will be announced on the 30th of November, 2018.
