About Me:

Fashion enthusiast.  My mom and aunties are these glamorous Nigerian women who inspired my sister and I as kids. They wore hats with dresses and wore jeans and beautiful belts as components of casual glamour!  Then, at the age of 15, I discovered beautiful Valentino gowns in a W magazine shoot and it was a done deal.  Years later I was offered a position in the costume department of Sex and the City in Season 4  after a chance meeting with the team (was supposed to be interviewing for bookeeping). Just being on the set and walking into the closet sent me on a rocket to Venus. I could not take the position due to demands at the time, but I have remained motivated by the experience ever since.

…And I am a Family Medicine Physician interested in women’s health, empowerment, and wellbeing.  I love music, adventure, traveling (especially to West Africa, France, NYC and the beach-dream location, Cannes, shown below), peonies, reading paperback books, making cakes, and going on city walks with my two children. I love life and love fashion and look forward to sharing more of these through my blog.
