So how was your weekend? Mine was sooo much fun! I went go-cart racing on Saturday…I admit that I didn’t want to go but I am glad that I dragged along ‘cause it was a blast! If y’all haven’t tried it, you should. I also went to see Pirates of the Caribbean – At World’s End……I just saw the first 2 parts last week and I loved them but I was disappointed in this one…..I don’t know, it just felt way too long. That said, it wasn’t a complete waste of time because I have a brand new crush…I never appreciated Orlando Bloom before but that boy is finnnnne! I even have a nickname for him ‘Ollie’ haahha…at my old age right? Oh well…
I was reading through my blog over the weekend and I realized that there are some Nigerian designers that I LOVE yet I have never really featured them on this site. One of such people is Maria Odunsi of MYA. I have loved her clothes for years! Ever since I saw her collection at the St. Moritz Style Selection some years ago. Maria is a graduate of ISL and the London College of Fashion. She also won the Fashion Designer of the Year Award in 2003. Anyways, I am still going to show more of Maria’s stuff in the future but as a teaser, here is the Caroline Chikezie cover of True Love from some months ago. All the clothes used in the shoot were by MYA by Maria Odunsi.
Absolutely stunning! Caroline looks amazing as well. I love her look especially her short hair-cut. I wish I could pull it off. For more on Caroline, click HERE
