This piece is by upcoming designer Toju Foyeh and its fabulous. I absolutely adore the flirty flounce detail flaring out at the top. Yes! Ah loves me some drama in my cocktail dresses and this one’ll definitely turn some heads huh! It’s sooo very ‘Dynasty’! (What’s Dynasty you say? only the most awesome, epic, ridiculously fabulous and fashion forward soap opera ever!!! … look it up)

So I’m gonna go ahead and say that this dress is definitely not for the faint hearted, you’ve gotta have some cahunas *said in italian mob voice with hand gesture* to pull this one off! It’s a piece from her Rebirth ‘L’or’ gold-themed collection, inspired by ‘the golden woman’ and to quote the designer herself “the golden woman is Toni Tones” *big grin* err Ok …. well… maybe her actual words were ” sexy, bold and elegant”…. BUT!!! it was totally obvious she meant to say ‘Toni Tones’ it was in her tone, you could tell…. you could just…. tell! *awkward silence*….. Err moving on swiftly…..It’s called the Dee Dress in dedication to her friend …. Well her friend ‘Dee’ obviously! She dedicated each of her pieces to her closest friends, how cool is that??? I for one, am currently re-evaluating my friendships… I mean, there’s got to be a particular reason why nothing’s ever been dedicated to me! Perhaps I just need to move some friends around …. you know …. as see what happens, cause obviously, they’re not working out too well are they?

Toju Foyeh is very quickly becoming one of my Nigerian favs, I’ve loved every single one of her pieces that I’ve seen ….. she just…. gets me…. *sigh*

If anyone caught Tiwa Savage at the MAMA’s and SMVA’s, you’d have seen her looking uber fab in her Toju Foyeh pieces, she caught my eye, that’s for sure. While we’re on it …. I lurvvve Tiwa Savage. ‘Kele kele love’ is my everyday shower song, yes! I sing and dance in the shower *hangs head in shame*. She’s on the cover of WoW magazine’s latest issue, in another Toju Foyeh piece. I put the pic up in my previous post actually, check on it.

It’s 7am in the morning??? Where the heck did all the time go??? *extremely puzzled* I haven’t slept and yet somehow, I’ve got to get to my friend, Terence’s event at 4pm or risk being beheaded. If I stand a chance of making it, I have to go to bed, …oh, sayyyy…4 hours ago! and I choose life people so I’m gotta bounce. catch you in a little bit and remember everyone,
BUY NIGERIAN!
