LADE TAKES LAGOS : WHITE ON DENIM X JUNIOR

Lagosians can stare!!! That’s one thing i got from this denim shoot with Junior of TLMURBAN

It was just like a month prior my trip to Lagos, Nigeria that Junior found my blog – after leaving a comment on his and went straight to email me on wanting to collaborate.

He messaged me talking about how my blog is so nice and etc and i was just really amused as to how someone can like my blog so quickly and would want to collaborate.

I guess i should give myself more credit for the work i put in here after all.

He suggested we do a denim x Adidas theme but unfortunately i didn’t take my favorite Adidas sneakers along with me to Nigeria so yeah i switched it up with  my white heels real quick. This kind of just shifted the whole idea of the shoot to matching denim with white and black and did we slay it or what?

We got different kind of stares from people in private vehicles and the commercial buses.

From the ‘who are these on the road’ stares to ‘maybe they are celebrities’ stare while squinting hard through their car windows to see if they could place our faces.

The sun was mad hot so half the time i was squinting lol

 

Then there was the stares from older women who obviously were wondering why our mothers let us out on the streets. Others watched in amusement and a road official even stopped to say hi to us while grinning from ear to ear..

This part was the funniest. I was just really trying to hold still while some big lorries passed the road making sure the breeze following them doesn’t blow me away.It was a funny and interesting experience.

Junior was fun to shoot with. There was no forming or whatever it is most ‘cool kids’ in Lagos  like to do (as i noticed while attending some events there). We laughed more than half the time. The photographer was also great and very welcoming. Imagine squating in the middle of the road taking blog pictures. He’s the real MVP

    White on denim is a classic and I love the sophisticated street style you both pulled off! I kind of think it wouldn’t even look this cool if you weren’t wearing heels LOL. Love the shades!

    Junior sure know how to pose! He appears really natural with it, you both are In sync. No bad body language of ‘I can’t wait to be over with this’. Lol! You both pulled off your outfits. Kudos!
