Happy Love Week!
Today, we have a feature post from our dear Metrogypsie – Blogger Inspiration of Life! She is really great person and we met early last year and she vlogged about our shopping experience together at Zazaii here:
Anyway, let’s get into the post! From here on it’s Stephanie (Metrogypsie) speaking…
Let’s be clear, androgyny to me is all about style.
Precisely, it is a term used to describe the art of mixing masculine accessories or apparel with feminine ones on a lady to create a certain/ ‘strong’ look. For example, wearing a really big faced dark-colored wristwatch, a pencil skirt paired with a boxy jacket | a chiffon ruffled blouse with a pair of brogues | boyfriend jeans paired with a top with a bow.
At the start of this year, I resolved (in the style department) to make 2017 my year of Androgyny in this regard, I decided to style a Val’s day inspired shoot with fellow blogger, Fey of the travel blog, Footprints iN Polaroids (@fnptravel).
I rocked the Androgynous looks and Fey, the girly ones.
Look One – HomeGrown
Homegrown for us refers to brands that are owned by Africans. Both outfits in this look are owned by and made in Nigeria.
Look Two – AnimalPrint
The choice of prints being animal skin was because of the sexy tone it connotes in a look.
Look Three – InspiredByMusic
Music is a huge part of the Valentines season/day.. so on this look I decided to draw inspiration from @Teknoofficial’s song, Diana.
