What We Wore: Street Style at The Nigerian Student Fashion and Design Week With Seyi Adenowo


Hey guys!

Sorry for staying away for so long. Was planning on making this a #nsfdw2016 recap but last minute decided to go with a style post. Said post is in collaboration withSeyi Adenowo of NOWO.

Seyi and I have been best friends for ten years now. Quite scary when I think about it but we became friends in high school and most people thought we wouldn't last we're really very different. Just look at our personal style.

The journey was never smooth but I'm really glad we persevered. Since I'm not necessarily mushy, I'm sure she'll be shocked to read this.

I'm probably feeling mushy because guess who's blog turned 2 today? That's right people! This blog began on the 18th of August, 2014 after procrastinating for almost two years. I'll be putting up a full blog post about it soon, plus a giveaway!

The similar shoes were totally coincidental.

So the theme of our outfits?
Nope. Not pointy heels.

The theme was supposed to be all black. Seyi was all excited about having found a "black" outfit. And on the d-day, I found her wearing this printed romper which is NOT black. She's still not convinced though.

Random fact: I'm sort of a trouble maker.

Peep the tassel pendant from this DIY post? It was fairly easy to make and I love how it complements my flowy bohemian vibe. I'm wearing a top and skirt though, both long. Some how, it works.

Whilst all-black outfits are really fashionable, the real reason for this outfit is that I was an intern for the show (like I mentioned in this post). It was really fun *coughs* stressful *coughs* though. I got to work backstage and also met a lot of cool people. Met Iju of @njcworks again (she took the lovely pictures) among other people.

So this is what I wore minus the sunglasses and heels. Ha ha. It's amazing how shoes change an outfit.

What I wore to Day 2:

Seyi didn't attend so I went solo. Look at me looking all "interny" and busy.

So who noticed the anklet? *covers face* Seyi actually made it for me a while ago but I'd been using it as a bracelet. Just you know, trying new things. Not sure anklets are for me though.

Do you remember this top and the skirt above from my "All black everything" post?

Here's to may more years of Mira La Belle eh? Thanks for all the love. Not sure what the blogversary post is going to be about yet though.

Benefits of blogging? The evolution of Mira La Belle?

Leave a comment, help me decide, I'd love to hear from you!
