Hi Everyone,
How are y’all doing?
So sorry I have been MIA.
I was in South Africa for a lil bit and had little no internet access…on the bright side, my trip was really fab!
Last week, work has been crazzzy! I actually started writing this blog post last week but havent had time to continue until now. I was in my office soooo late all through last week. Crazy!

So what have you been up to? I can’t wait for ‘summer’. The months of June, July and August are my favs. Something exciting always jumps off.
So how was your weekend? Mine was soooooo good!

MADE Magazine held an event last week. Here are some photos.

Best Dressed Ladies
Lola Maja – Joke Ladoja

Both ladies hit opposite sides of the style spectrum, Lola went for the classic but sexy little black dress by Yemi O while Joke went for the quirky choice with bold choices in cut, colour and accessories. Uber fab!
Congrats to comedian, Basketmouth (Bright Okpocha), he’s now a daddy! His girlfriend, Elsie Uzoma gave birth to a baby boy earlier this month. The baby’s name is reportedly Jason.

That’s it for today.

Tomorrow, promise!

    The black dress is beautiful but that your other choice…mba.

    @Olu: slippers ke? Those heels are hot men!

    May 20, 2008 at 11:55 pm

    judging from the pictures, i dont think the ladoja dress desrves best dressed but i guess thats ur choice…the other black dress was nice tho


    May 21, 2008 at 12:26 am

    NAETO C looks hot…
    as always

    We think Tosyn and Noble look ab-fab,
    but then again, we are biased!

    Just so you know,
    LOLA of the UNRULIES is a a JBL dress, and Chris (editor of MADE MAG), is in a CLOTHSENSE original

    LOLA (best dressed female) Maja’s BLACK dress was designed by YEMI OSUNKOYA and is from the YEMI O couture line

    And lets do a shameless plug of Tosyns blog!
    To read Tosyns take on fashion on the MADE night, pls go to her blog!

  27. Yemi Osunkoya

    Wow Bella, I’m so flattered you picked my Yemi O Black dress as one of your ‘best dressed’ choices.I have the beautiful Lola Maja to thank for that.

  28. FashionCritic

    May 23, 2008 at 3:48 am

    Joke is definitely the best dressed.

    The other woman is drop dead gorgy with a MAD shape but that dress is TOO TIGHT (peep the bust). Don’t see why she would be there…

    Again, the guys dressed WAY better than the girls!
    Gbenga Ashiru was the best dressed male! Is he single?

  29. Lola Maja

    May 23, 2008 at 12:23 pm

    Hi Bella,

    I second Yemi’s comments, i’m totally flatterd that I made your “Best Dressed” list.

    But to be honest, I wouldn’t have been able to make it through the night interviewing the guests on the red carpet and hostessing with Olisa without the confidence that Yemi’s dress gave me.

    FashionCritic commented on the bust area of the dress.. just to respond, unfortunately the person who helped me dress didn’t lace up the corset correctly and every time I laughed i had over flow.. even more unfortunate.. I laugh an awful lot.. :o)

    Love your blog, love your style.
