Leather & Satin at the Elbphilarmonie

 

Almost 10years & €789 millions later, the Elbphilarmonie was officially opened to the public by Hamburg's Mayor, Olaf Scholz. So of course there was no way we were going to wait any longer to see it & all I can say is that the wait was well worth it. It is such an amazing building which has a 82metre long Escalator that takes one through the Concert building.

 

The Plaza, which is the absolute highlight of the building is on the 8th floor & opens up to a round spectacular view of the City in an area of 37metres. With several restaurants,  hotels & high end appartments, let's just say that this has been added to the sight-seeing spots in Hamburg & is a perfect location for taking Photos.

Cold Shoulder

 

Velvet, cold shoulder, peplum detail & Turtleneck all in one piece! Well, leave it to me to combine 4 trends into one amazing top. This started out as a dress but because I had snipped away a piece of this soft & luxurious fabric to DIY some shoes (coming up soon on the Blog), it ended up being a top with peplum details (mainly because I don't do croptops, well until I join a Gym someday).

Shifting Boundaries

Truth be told, styling overknee boots can be somewhat a challenge because they have a way of making an outfit look, well 'over-sexy'. But the perfect way to tone things down a bit is by adding some black tights.

All black at the the Visual Leader 2016 Photos Exhibition

So Band tshirts were originally sold at specific Band concerts as part of their merchandise and were worn by their fans to show off a shared idealogy with the band or movement. But in the recent years, it has gained much popularity to a point that now it is being worn for how it looks than for the music.

Sneakers Exhibition in Hamburg

Who would have thought that attending an Exhibition all about 'Sneakers' would be so interesting. I am not exactly a 'Sneaker/Sport shoes Fan' even though i have to admit that they are the most comfortable shoes ever made. But walking through the Exhibition & reading all about the history & development of this 'Kult' in the last years was really impressive.

Someone to look up to

It's unbelievable how mothers seem to always have the right advice to give when you absolutely need it:

  • Friends are like running water (when I tell her about a fading friendship).
  • Your Job is your first Husband (when she encourages me to put more effort into my work)
  • Always talk to the kids & explain to them what they've done wrong (when my daughter is driving me crazy)
  • Forgive them for they do not know what they are doing (when am angry or disappointed by someone)
  • Pray, Pray & Pray (she reminds me about that every time I talk to her).

Thank you Mummy for your Love, Advice, Prayers, Encouragement, Sacrifices & most of all, for my Siblings. I strive everyday to try & become even half of the woman that you are. We love you so much & wish you a Happy Mother's Day.

DIY Boyfriend Jeans

Today at last I get to share with you my first DIY. Well not really my first DIY Project but the first 'officially camera documented' one. I love DIYs, it's just fun for me to try out stuff myself & am quite blessed to have been able to turn one of them (sewing) into a career (Oriwo-Design).

Sequin Iro & Buba

'Iro & Buba' is a traditional outfit generally worn by Yoruba women but which has recently gained popularity by women of all ages & from all over the world. I fell in love with it when I first saw one of my favourite Fashion Bloggers, Sylvia Njoki of 'Style by Sylvia' rocking it.

Boubou & a Maxi Skirt

Have you ever seen an outfit for the first time & knew immediately that you had to get it? Well that was what happened the minute that I lay my eyes on this 'Outfit' at the Dockland Fashion Show 2015. This amazing Top was designed & made by a talented Designer here in Hamburg, & when I approached her to ask her if I could buy it, imagine my joy when she offered to make me one, for free. I combined it with black leggings & heels for a friend's wedding but on this day, I decided to style it with an Ankara Maxi Skirt to give it even more volume, just as recommended by the Designer. So many people complimented me on the outfit as were taking these Photos, it's something different but I totally love it.



The Design is inspired by the grand Boubou/bubu, a flowing wide sleeved robe traditionally worn by men in West Africa, and to a lesser extent in  North Africa. But it has increasingly become popular in all parts of Africa & even styled by women because of it's 'ceremonial' look & comfortability.

Wish you all a blessed week & a lovely week ahead.
