SD TREND WATCH: BELTS - THE ULTIMATE 'COOL' LAGOS ACCESSORY!


Lagos loves to look cool and when it come to the ultimate necessary accessory, Lagos loves to strap up in cool belts... Hermes belts are much loved and much rocked..I admit I love 'em too..people just have a way of looking 'correct' ( as in gbam!) when wearing 'em.. (There's something about that bold 'H' that  we seriously love! and its nothing to do with any perceived image) I know we have a way of bleeding trends to death in Lagos but I personally make an exception for 'Hermes strapping' after all, it's not a trend par say, its just a belt at the end of the day..albeit a cool one..
Check out my cool Lagos peeps with their 'cool' on...

And when Lagos is not 'Hermes-rocking' they just might be living it up on the Louis Vuitton tip...

Dbanj is blessed jor. Illuminati ain't gat nothing on him..!!
All the illuminati talk just makes me laugh...!!! Hee! hee!
Lagos certainly loves designer labels but hey, there's absolutely nothing wrong with that...It comes with the territory..Let's jut say it's Lagos Stylay and at Seriously Doughnuts, we still love to our Lagos crowd...fashionable, fun, funky, sometimes predictable but always looking good....!!!! Do we take fashion seriously in Naija??? You bet we do...

Have a fab weekend peeps! Don't forget to keep your cool on *wink!...SD is still about town trend watching...Yes o..TGIF the weekend kicks off today...!!!


Lots of love,


B.

    There are handlers and there are puppets. You need to figure that out!

  2. I am very much over Hermes belts. Naija's have a habit of over doing something and turning it 'uncool' and if im honest, i dont really see the appeal of the belt. Its just cos its a big H and is instantly recognisable as Hermes (assuming its not fake). But we should ask ourselves the following: would you wear a belt with a big T? or any other random letter of the alphabet? Probably not...

    All that being said, I have some lovely chic and understated vintage Celine and Ferragamo belts which i totally love to give my outfits a little bit of edge now and then.

    These is a clear difference between fashion and style. One is followed and the other one is inherently possessed.....

  3. TemiDee, i feel you like i dey feel FICA on my paycheck. Nigerians can overkill something. I live in Cali and thank goodness i can wear my Hermes belt and not feel like jumping off the golden gate bridge just cos 20 other folks are wearing it. the last time i was in Nigeria, i couldn't even carry my chanel bag cos every body carried one. that's the beauty of living overseas...even in LA, yeah people cna be so ostentatious but you can stilll be tickled by your Hermes belt or other designer items. God bless naija and their ability to turn fashion into assault...lol
