MIGNOLLY’S MUST-HAVE: DRESSY MAXI SKIRT


Over the years, certain clothing items have become ‘staples’ or ‘must haves’ in every girl’s closet (wardrobe). These are items that help you stay stylish all year round, such as a denim jacket, black blazer, pair of formal trousers or dress slacks,  little black dress (lbd),  white shirt, white tee (t-shirt), dark-wash jeans (mostly black), casual (or boyfriend) jeans etc.…

PUSSY BOW


Parisian fashion is characterised by chic, sophisticated and effortless pieces. One of its ‘piece de resistance’ is the pussy bow blouse. It came into creation originally as a gender bending piece that still incorporated femininity and softness. In essence, the pussy bow is a bow-tie, albeit a feminine bow-tie. Designers like Coco Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent have featured it…

MARCH PAST!!!


If you’re anything like me, then you have ankara fabrics from months, maybe even years ago. Sometimes, you simply love a print, but don’t know what to sew with it. Other times, it might be an ‘aso-ebi’ that you’ve used for a function, but what’s left over isn’t substantial enough to give out, but too much to discard. The solution…

LFW 2– LOVING LAVENDER ‘LILAC’


‘Loving Lavender ‘Lilac’’, was inspired by ‘Living Lavida Loca’, Ricky Martin’s 1999 hit record, which directly translates to ‘living this crazy life’. Life can get crazy sometimes, especially, when you go from feeling high/on cloud 9, to having your spirits low and not even understanding how you got there. The days following Lagos Fashion Week were characterized by a feeling…

LFW 1: SUNSHINE BABY


The title of this post was inspired by the Christmas song ‘Santa Baby’. I don’t know why, but it’s been on repeat in my head (😁) It was a really exciting experience for me to attend Lagos Fashion Week Autumn/Winter Presentation 2018. Being a creator and curator definitely forced me to emerge from my comfort zone and explore more facets…

BLACK PANT(HER)


Yes, I had to (☺). A pair of black dress pants (or trousers) screams practicality and professionalism on one hand, and pizzazz and party on the other. Either way, the right pair styled properly can depict power, boldness, sophistication, edginess and sexiness, all at the same time. A pair of pants is an example of one of the perfect wardrobe staples that…

POUR L’AMOUR (DEUX)


What do you wear when you need to go out, but have ‘nothing’ to wear? A little black dress (lbd). The popularity of the little black dress (lbd) can be attributed to Audrey Hepburn’s character in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The way she packed her hair, the gloves, the gorgeous strings of pearls adorning her neck….the overall effect was in a…

POUR L’AMOUR


Valentine’s day is a day of love; a day to give, experience and celebrate love. It’s a day set aside to shower that special someone with love, attention and gifts (although this should be done everyday, maybe except the gift part… lol). Over time, it has become the norm to think of val’s day as a day to simply spend…
