The White List

I am delighted to be posting the first ever male guest feature on Chic Therapy. Today's featured blogger is none other than my extremely funny and crazy friend ****(lets call him Asterix).Asterix is a good friend and we have had some insane adventures both in Nigeria & London.


Anyway, Asterix decided to copy me and start his own fashion/Lifestyle blog, The White List.In his own words his blog is about "Chronicling some of my favourite things and everything in between". Asterix is one stylish guy and i am pleased  he is sharing his style with us.



Why did you start a blog?
I started blogging without a ‘real reason’ really… I guess I could say I started mostly for fun and to kinda show off stuff I like – I do take a slight diversion from time to time though.


What is your blog about?
My blog is filled with photos of things that I like, photos that I’ve taken and I want to share and personal style posts. I’m inspired by photography so my blog has more photographs than it has words but they do say photos are worth a thousand words…(cheesy but you get the gist).


What is your style?
Eclectic. Lazy answer, I know… Haha! I don’t really have any style I like or dislike. I go from grungy to preppy and everything in between. I like to stand out so I tend to look for stuff that’s different– weird t-shirts, strangely cut jeans… you get my drift.


What one item can you not do without?
My watch(es). Bit of a cheat here but I love LOVE watches. Style and function rolled in one.

What is your favourite item right now?
My (full-length) onesie! Its so comfy (and I definitely love comfy)!

Ruffles in A Blazer

I'd just bought a navy blue blazer when I came across a picture of Kate Middleton in blazer with a similar cut.I liked her ensemble,so i thought i'd swagger jack and steal the look from her.She had on black wedges but i thought i'd add a pop of color with my flats.

The Thrifted Mustard Yellow Skirt

I got this skirt early in the summer from a thrift/consignment store.I was attracted to the mustard yellow color and the design on it.I have no doubt that this skirt was made by an African tailor. The seam, elastic band and the round details, is reminiscence of a Nigerian tailor's work.The fabric used is brocade, and this was very popular in making similar styles in the early 90's. I am also guessing this skirt was part of a 'skirt & blouse' set.I could have sworn my Mom's tailor, Brother Rasak(from back in the days) made this.:-)

Anyway weather was great yesterday and i decided to give this skirt a try.Though not loving the ensemble,still thought i'd share with you guys.




Dunno what my hand was doing up there! lol
Yellow Bow from Chic Therapy.

BTW, I cut 6 inches of my hair last week (dont even ask me why) :-(. Hopefully it will grow back soon.

Enjoy the rest of the week Chicas.

Third World Profashional

I have been reading the very fab blog, Third World Profashional for a while now and i knew sooner or later i'd have to ask her to feature on Chic Therapy. Witty and gorgeous Daks is the brain behind this blog and I love her blog because she she keeps it real, 100 percent of the time. This is what Daks had to say about her style.



Third World Profashional Says:
"My personal style is very glamorous, very stylish but a good mix of over the top and understated. I don't have a particular aesthetic I constantly cater to, I love fashion and I love to experiment so I flirt my way through the different decade dictated fashions. My only weakness however is probably being a little too enamoured with "trend pieces", but I look at it as being young and wanting to try everything. By the time I get a bit older, I'll definitely have discovered my "look" and settled into what works for me. The only things I definitely abhor are androgynous and bohemian looks, I don't understand why any girl would want to look like a boy or a homeless person. I see it works for some people but its certainly not my thing.

I draw inspiration from so many places, street style, celebrities, bloggers (including your fabulous self), in the end however the deciding factor is always whether I absolutely love it or absolutely hate it. Personalities who have and continue to inspire me style-wise are Jackie Onassis, Audrey Hepburn, Marisa Berenson, Anna Dello Russo, Bianca Jagger, Victoria Beckham....and so many others. My dynamic sense of style can be seen in the very different people I draw inspiration from, each one of these women i mentioned have different ways they express themselves with fashion and I vacillate between all of them. Currently I'm really impressed by Kourtney Kardashian, I'm still surprised by the fact that a reality star could be someone I would consider fashion wise but she pulls her looks together extremely well.

Hopefully someday my experimental phase will pass and I'll find my own personal niche, till then I'm having an absolute ball trying everything."






 
 

Gorgeous, gorgeous,gorgeous-dont you think so too?
