Ebony & Ivory

I am in AWE of Nigerian fashion retailers these days.....just in awe.

Let me tell you the story of this dress. One of my friends Nneka came into town and successfully convinced me to leave my prone position in front of the tv to go out, and like a typical girl I was all like "Ohmyfreakingoodness I have nothing to wear!!". Now I wasn't going to go drop my children's school fees on some trend piece I can only wear once and costs the earth so I was like lemme go down to L'espace (and btw, have you got your African Bloggers Calendar yet? Get it HERE) and see what they have to offer.

I saw this Things Nigerian Love dress in white first off, but it looked way simple and I didn't feel like it had enough oomph, but that's just the dress' super power. 

I put it on and was just like "heeyyy Cookie Lyon".

Loved it so much I got it in black as well.

.....and how did I do that night you ask?

Please judge for yourself.




WHITE







BLACK





                          Things Nigerian Love dress; Hermes & Bvlgari jewelry; Anne Elise hair


I'll also like to drop a postscript and add that its been a year since I started using my Anne Elise Real Hair (see review HERE) and its still almost indistinguishable from the first time I got it. No tangles, very minimal shedding, still amazing. I am very impressed.

Love and light xx

  1. Funny enough, the white one caught my eye first. I think it's a lovely dress sha.

  2. Love it. Was going to get the white a while back, can't recall why I changed my mind.
    You've added some weight and it looks great on you, so it's good weight.

  3. I've been toying with the idea of this dress for a while but my 'bacne' won't allow me be great. I would have done what you did and bought both!

    1. Abeg abeg abeg, I see your bacne and raise you my stretch marks. You can't let a minor thing like that stop you from wearing a fabulous dress. Go forth and slay.

  4. As usual you look great!
    You put me on to TNL when they just started. Sadly I'm not at home right now, would have rushed to their site
