Big LA

In a bid to make Taiwo jealous, I invited Laolu (her best friend) for lunch with me today. You see, Taiwo and I work in the same building, but she got the whole week off and has been rubbing it in my face all day. Pictures speak a thousand words and so as Laolu wolfed down his TFC fried rice, I snuck in a picture and immediately whatsapped it to her. My plan worked. She was jealous. Please see below:

Laolu is easily one of our best dressed male friends- and he probably knows it (LOL)! I dug up pictures I took of him over Christmas and decided to share what an ‘Oh-so-Dapper’ Friday look should resemble. Gentlemen… please take note!

1. The usual khaki Friday trousers are a staple in every man’s wardrobe. Nothing else screams “Business Casual”.

2. A plain blue (or pale pink) shirt sings untold harmonies when paired with khaki. No pinstripes or checked shirts required, just plain vanilla.

3. A pocket square is always a winner be it a formal or casual look. If it matches your shirt/tie, you’re definitely winning!

4. Laolu has on a simple pair of plimsoles. I never would have thought it, but they work!

5. An expensive watch/belt/Man Bag will always sail you through to top points!!! I like anything but Hermes! That massive ‘H’ drives me insane, however, I do appreciate that it’s top quality so I can’t knock anyone down for it.

Below are the pictures of Big LA I dug up from Christmas…

Ps: Note to Taiwo: Revenge is a dish best served cold, enjoy! Muhahaha

Pps: Ladies, Laolu is taken, you can stop drooling now *giggles*

Ppps: It was Laitan’s tradition wedding over the weekend. She looked beautiful. Can’t wait for the pictures to come out!

Roosevelt, Prince Charming

I was in Grenoble last October when I spotted a Cambridge Satchel on my fellow nappy lover Esione of Beautifully Nappy. This was by no means the first time I’d set eyes on a Cambridge Satchel but it was the first time that I’d REALLY considered owning one.

The Cambridge satchel is very well put together. He exudes a dapper radiance and preppy character. With his matte finish and clean cut, he woos with his every stride. Primed with a subdued elegance, it’s impossible to imitate the snobbish character of the Cambridge Satchel and resultantly, I purchased one.

I call my Cambridge Satchel Roosevelt simply because it strikes me as a polished, well spoken gentleman with a bit of a hidden agenda. FDR maybe? I can’t say really. He reminds me of Chuck Bass only he’s rich in oxblood as opposed to the sheen of patent leather. Roosevelt has become my everyday Prince Charming. He was well worth every penny!

Ps: I’m quite pleased with myself. I’m on a roll with my blogging!

PPs: In line with my BMS, I’ve downloaded ‘7 minute workout’. I love the app and strongly recommend it if you’re interested in light exercise for your body.
