    I love the name tags on the bags.
    i think brands sell alot more and faster when people can personalize with them. i. e coke

      Coke how? You think that it is the personalisation that has made coke sell a lot more and faster? The things I read here just boggles the mind.

      Coke/Coca Cola of all brands?

      Are you ok? Did the person above say that Coke wasn’t selling before? This is a marketing strategy that has been hailed as genius by several outlets and YES, it has boosted sales.
      You are now even adding “the things I read here”. Why do u think they used d strategy? To simply maintain the top spot and keep selling the same quantity?

      As silly as it sounds…….
      I think Sis has a point……Nigerian’s went CRAZY looking for coke bottles with their names on it. LMAO have you not seen the pics?

      Not just Nigerians. My colleague bought stacks of bottles in his, his wife’s, his son’s and his daughter’s names when Coca-Cola first started this and he would bring a new bottle of coke to work everyday. I come dey wonder whether the thing full im garage…

      Re the post, I don’t know if I would have said any of these ladies rocked it best but if I had to choose, possibly Zaina. It’s one of those statement bags that can either shine or just get lost in your outfit if you’ve got too much going on. Liz’s look is a bit too plain for me and as much as I love some of what Ezinne brings to the style table, it felt like there was no coherence in her look once she threw the bag in there (the top and the shorts were nice and vintage-y on their own).

    None of the above…a more causal look perhaps?

    Ok so I definitely agree with the above comments, the bag definitely looks like a license plate but it is nice that it can be personalized. In regards to who wore it better, I’d have to go with look one.

    Sorry but Ezinne is wrong on every level. Is she reali a fashion stylist and where did she get her training and wat influences and informs her choices. Seems to me that in Nigeria every1 who feels they have a thing for fashion jumps on the train and are self titled stylist personal shoppers etc without prior experience. In d developed countries you study, work for the brands gain relevant experience before anything else. My pick is Liz, she did justice to the ensemble and then Zina.

      I mean! This isn’t hating but how is Ezinne a stylist again??
      She’s always so poorly put together

    • Jo!

      February 12, 2015 at 12:59 pm

      Okay, that short is gorgeous but look at that top! Just look at… Can’t you even iron small? And it’s just all wrong

    • tunmi

      February 12, 2015 at 1:53 pm

      The top is not supposed to be ironed. I looked at it some more and that seems to be the pattern (I have no idea what they are called). I would pick Ezinne because I like the idea of the outfit, something casual just not with that top. Matter of fact, replace her top with Liz’s and it would for me. Next is Zina. Liz’s hair doesn’t allow me to fully appreciate her face or maybe it’s the pose.

      All gorgeous women though

      Tunmi I believe it is called ruching.

    • ijeo

      February 12, 2015 at 3:16 pm

      Jo, you are very funny. How is she suppose to iron such a top.
