I really have to be honest here and say Paris has never before appealed to me like it does for so many people. I like the city and its food and architecture but something always seems to be missing. I simply can’t lay a finger on why I feel that way. I have been to Paris so many times that I have lost count but just kept having the feeling of not enjoying it as I should. I joked the last time I was there that for some bizarre reason, every time I go to Paris, something unexpected happens that ruins my trip.
So when I told my blogger friend Lamich Kirabo that I was visiting Paris, she was absolutely sure I would love it this time around. Not the least because we were planning a collaboration.
Ok so this post came a little bit later than planned. The idea was to share it last weekend but as they say, even the best plans do come undone from time to time lol.
This is meant to be a quick post about dressing down whilst staying stylish. As you may already know, suits are my thing. I would wear a suit in my sleep if it were practical lol. However, there is nothing worse than going to an event or a hangout and feeling overdressed. In my opinion, its even worst than being underdressed. Make you feel like a right idiot seeking attention. At least for weddings, formal dinners and other similar occasions, you know you have to dress to the nines. And of course, if you are only hanging out with your boys over a pint down the local bar then by all means roll up with your PJs. Actually, please don’t. You might look like you need help and at best, your mates might use it to laugh at you but you get the point I am trying to make.
I can honestly say that I have never been this excited about a backpack before. You know how sometimes one does not know they need something until they get it? Yep, that was the feeling I got when I first received my Caxton Sport backpack from Eddie.
I have just walked into my flat not so long ago from an event a friend of mine hosted called Beam Talks and was browsing the next for Fashion Week inspirations when I stumbled upon a photo of me. More accurately, a photo of myself and a friend of mine during London Fashion Week Men’s SS18.
I chuckled the minute I saw the photo as it was a bit wired seeing yourself on other people’s publications and you have no idea how your photo got there in the first place. It kind of brought back good memories of SS18 when myself and a few friends decided to check out the event.
