DIY Denim




ASOS Denim Shirt
ASOS sheer maxi skirt
Location: Sofitel Sipopo Golf Hotel
Photographer: @FernLorena

I went to Sipopo Island over the wekeend, read more about it on Daks In The City HERE and while I was there, decided to do a little impromptu shoot with my friend Fernanda (@FernLorena), who's Nigerian/Brazilian but the Naija in her is dominant as she's a photographer, model, fashion designer, actress, marketing expert and an all round soji babe.

I modified a borrowed (stolen) denim shirt into an off-shoulder, tie-front, cropped shirt (yeah, it needed that much description). 


The shirt belonged to my brother, I bought it for him a few years ago but got the sizing wrong and when it arrived it was too big, so my brother stared spreading rumours around the family that I bought him a denim lab coat.

Since I was so unappreciated I took my shirt back and now its going places (watchu know about that lab coat, huh Chidi?)


So a how-to basically: I buttoned the two middle buttons of the shirt and slid the collar down till it was around my shoulders. Folded the lapels down and tied the tails at the bottom for a cropped effect.

Ta-da!







Oh yeah and my make-up that morning was doing a mad ting



Damn Daks, back at it again with the candid shot



Love and Light x

  13. I also received the black scrub set. It is just like the white set except that the white set has slits at the ankles. The black scrub pants does not. The color of the black is very nice too.
