      Really, i dont think people were really dressed up o, at least compared to when LPM first started.Going out is a big deal in Naija and dressing up and looking good each time you step out is part of our culture. plus it is a place where ‘paparazzi’ will be so you have to look nice na!

      LPM has gt to be my best feature on BN!I love seeing everyday people and what they are wearing! Thanks BN

  • Stacey May 27, 2012 at 4:34 pm

    Wow! So much hating! Some folks just don’t have a single nice bone in them. Abeg, if you haven’t got anything sensible to say, just shush, rather than hating unnecessarily!
    spot on @marvel! While all them hating optimists, pessimists and realists were busy arguing about the glass of water, you sharp opportunist drank it!

  • D May 27, 2012 at 11:57 pm

    I see a lot of braided hair. AMEN. I’ll take braids over weaves any and every day. Weaves make China and India rich, braids keep the money “in house”.

  • Omo May 28, 2012 at 11:23 am

    Some peeps here sha..they are just pure criticizers and haters!!! Damn! girl dresses nice they hate, girl dresses trashy they hate, girl wears braid they hate, girl has brazillian hair they hate (even if she carry natural hair sef them go still hate) girl carries bag they hate, girl wears designer na fake!! And most of these haters are girls..why??? na wa oooooo. You with all the authentic and designer stuff why has BN not featured you as a style icon?! lolllllllllz

    • kenks May 28, 2012 at 2:05 pm

      Thank u my sister!!!!!
      Our girls just love to hate.
      Na hobby.

    • D May 28, 2012 at 5:18 pm

      There is a difference between observation and critique. Also, people are allowed preferences. I didn’t impose my preferences on you or anyone else. I simply made and observation. Because someone doesn’t like what you like does not make them a “hater”. That word is over used. People claiming to have haters everywhere are not as relevant as they would like others to believe. Usually, no ones even paying attention to you. Women look good wearing weaves, women look good wearing braids. I have worn both….I like braids because I feel it celebrates my culture and natural beauty more. That’s it and that’s all.

  • as myself May 28, 2012 at 3:50 pm

    some peeps only claim to fame is lpm,thank u lpm,may u never fade out,u will out grow get arena.ijn

  • Omo May 30, 2012 at 5:18 pm

    @D…I hope you didn’t think my comment was referring to you..far from it dear. I just happened to post my comment after yours. I’m a lover of braids and comment was directed at some know all critics who probably feel no one can ever get it right when it comes to dressing and grooming.. 🙂

  • Oak’S signature May 30, 2012 at 9:24 pm

    Really nice participating as a vendor. Had fun and also made great sales!!!! Check out us out at
