TBT glamour - Onyeka Onwenu!

Since its throw back Thursday, i thought we could have a look at some fabulous retro looks of the legendary diva, Miss Onyeka Onwenu. Her iconic haircut, love for fashion and beauty wasn't just an overnight transformation, believe me, she's revolutionized the industry in many more ways than music. Her iconic looks are very reminiscent and celebrated in modern day glamour with the likes of Chidinma, Munachi Abii, Katherine Idoho and  Omoni Oboli ditching long locks for natural kinky short cuts (see my post on Nigerian beauties rocking here). With sultry gorgeous eyes, bushy natural brows and beauti'FULL' lips, Onyeka can be described as an epitome of a true African beauty

Inside look at Taylor Swift's phenomenon street style!

If i could describe Miss Taylor Swift's style in two words, it'll be classic and feminine. I'm yet to find any young adult in Hollywood who does those two words better. No surprise to me she won best dressed female for 2014, she was absolutely phenomenon. As a matter of fact, if there's any fashion role model i would advice young girls to follow, it'll be Taylor Swift. Let's have a look at some of her best street style and see how she manages to keep her clothes tight enough to show she's a woman yet loose enough to show she's a lady.

Fashion Discussion - Should me wear underwear?

Well, i think as Iyanya and Peter are concerned, i'm sure their answer would probably be no. Lol! The discussion came up amongst my girlfriends today and surprisingly a lot of ladies found guys who wore underwear's more attractive than those that didn't. Honestly, i would have guesses the reverse but that's what it is! I'd love to have your opinion, what do think?

Do we love Beyonce's new super short bangs?

Eeerrrmmm!!! Uhmmmmm!!! Over to you guys? I don't care abou the hair but i'm obsessed with the plaid skirt.

Matching handbags and dresses - would you rock?

Maybe matching your handbag and dress in the exact same fabric/design isn't your idea of a fashionable combination but if top designers are making it and fashion forward celebrities are wearing it, i guess it kinda says something right. I'm not really sure about the trend just yet but quite a few fashion divas have spotted it. Up there is a Gucci dress and handbag. Continue to see more below: 

What do think about my classic independence day dress?

I'm sure those following me on instagram (soladunn) must have seen the rough sketches when i was working on this. The whole idea came from this lovely set of green & white flowers (below) i came across just a few days before Independence and i thought - how about i design/sketch a classic dress out of this? Well, thats what i came up with, not so bad hey! Lol! BTW, if i could put this on a body or'll be Miss Agbani Darego!
