Honey Ogundeyi

Honey OgundeyiHoney Ogundeyi wore the dress late last year, in December, for The Future Awards.

She kept her look simple and accessorized with silver ankle strap sandals, a blue-green print clutch and a silver statement neck piece.

For her beauty look she also went subtle with blue eyeshadow and nude lips.

    they both look good. its a tie

    the dress is 10,500. I like that.

    say yes to affordable clothing.

      I’ve just gone to the website and alas the dress is N10,700.
      I’m wondering if BN made a typo or if the value of the dress has gone up by N200 as a result of this edition of Pick Your Fave.

      Anywhichway, it’s a cute piece and yeah, affordable.

      I like both, but Honey looks so fresh, maybe it’s the hair pulled back?

    Honey Ogundeyi. her simplicity brings out the beauty in the dress, i love the way she had her hair up so you can appreciate the cut in the shoulders.

    Looks beautiful on both girls but love the way Toke accessorized it

    I think Honey wore it better. I prefer the dress with sandals as opposed to pumps. And I think Toke’s jewelry is a teeny bit too much.

      And Berry Dakara, I’m sorry but you’re not one to be giving fashion criticism or style pointers.

      I follow your blog and Instagram……You seem lovely as a person but when it comes to fashion…….guuuuuurrrrrrrrrrl!!!!!

      Oh the Shade!!!……I like the dress on Ms Toke tho, not a fan of mullet dresses anyway.

    • Hauwa

      January 15, 2015 at 10:29 pm

      That shade though!

      Can people just BREATH? I’ts soo hard to please yall, you personally don’t like her fashion sense, so she should shut up?

    Aww.they both look gorgeous! Beatiful dress I must say!

    Honey looks good but she didn’t wear the best accessories to make the dress pop, Toke rocked the dress better but should have worn her hair in an up do…

    i think i love what Toke did with the dress, really cute. and BN, the color is Scuba blue, not blue scuba, thank you…

    • Dandelion

      January 15, 2015 at 10:09 am

      Actually BN is correct. It’s a blue dress and the material is the stretchy kind used to make scuba suits. It cannot be ‘scuba blue because that would indicate that the shade of blue is ‘scuba’ and there’s no such thing. Don’t correct people when you’re not sure cos it only makes you sound ignorant.

    • Leah

      January 15, 2015 at 5:40 pm

      Blue scuba as in ‘blue cotton’ or ‘blue satin’. The color of the fabric is blue and the fabric is scuba. I wouldn’t call you ignorant like you did to her though.

    • jhennique

      January 15, 2015 at 11:33 am

      its blue scuba! scuba is the fabric type and not the a colour

    • Hauwa

      January 15, 2015 at 10:32 pm

      Lmaoo Scuba blue? girl bye!

  12. oj

    January 15, 2015 at 8:38 am

    N10,500! cheaper than I expected o.


    January 15, 2015 at 8:48 am

    Toke definitely rocked it better and her hair is gorgeous – Honey tried though…….

  14. Fashionista

    January 15, 2015 at 8:50 am

    Toke men! I prefer Tokes necklace and shoes.

    Honey does for me with her simplicity

  22. Omoba

    January 15, 2015 at 10:16 am

    Both ladies rocked it veryy well ..

    But i like how Honey’s top is a bit loose. toke’s look a bit tight at the top but they both look very lovely

  23. integrity

    January 15, 2015 at 10:24 am

    based on their individual personalities they rocked it well.. I prefer Honey’s grace..

  24. MiDe

    January 15, 2015 at 11:07 am

    Love Honey’s look more.

  25. Idowu Afolashade

    January 15, 2015 at 11:18 am

    It looks great on both, but toke rocked it better wit the accessories and hair

  26. Derin

    January 15, 2015 at 11:26 am

    Toke makes me want to know how I can get my hands on the dress!!! It’s almost as if she might have altered it to fit her. The other girls make me wonder why they’re wearing robes, even the model didn’t do the dress any justice.

      Touche. Toke. Fits her like a glove.

    I’m not a big fan of herd, but she won hands down #TOKE#

  28. jhennique

    January 15, 2015 at 11:35 am

    Toke! i love the length of the front hem on her. i just think she shuda done a sultry bun or some wispy kinda hairstyle. All the same she rocked it better, shoes and all

  29. Hurperyearmie

    January 15, 2015 at 11:38 am

    i prefer Toke

  30. mandy

    January 15, 2015 at 12:15 pm

  31. Chinco Bee

    January 15, 2015 at 12:18 pm

    Toke for me all the way….Lord bless me much ooo to avoid this simple cloth for N10k+…..Amennnnnn

  32. adelegirl

    January 15, 2015 at 12:24 pm

    Both wore it really well. Can’t choose between either. Wow! The price makes the dress even more “gawjus”! Hope they make a variation with sleeves. Lovely dress.
    Ehen, these are the types of Nigeria dress designers/retailers/dress shops I want to see more of – quality classy designs with affordable prices. Well done Fashpa!

    Toke… the fit and the hair style worked wonders and the necklace sits nicely on her.

  35. Red

    January 15, 2015 at 3:58 pm

    On Honey, it’s more laid-back, casual. On Toke, it’s more Elegant. So I’d say Toke

  36. Ynnon

    January 15, 2015 at 4:19 pm

    Hard to decide so I’ll say both.

  37. modupe

    January 15, 2015 at 5:00 pm

    Its so obvious nah…TOKE DID

  38. ktemi

    January 16, 2015 at 10:13 am

    I think Toke nailed it esp the pleats on her dress…seems it was customised to fit her better. And her accessories made it stand out

  39. quiet confidence

    January 17, 2015 at 6:24 am

    I like it better on Honey. It looks more elegant on her. She kept the accessories simple and you can see the detail of the shoulder cut.
