I love you guys so much (someone’s excited), thank you for all the love on the last post and trust me i’ve gotten the hint, more posts like that would come. 
Another blog collaboration, and unlike the first one here this has a theme;*drumroll* the denim dress.

So fam let formally introduce you to Tonye of The TonyeIgbani blog the girl with amazing personality and great sense of humor. If you can take a joke we are automatically besties and i’ve a major obsession with her hair (her natural hair), if i could just shave it and plant it on my (not weird at all Sogie).
We did this shoot when i was in lagos, which i recounted all bout here and somehow forgot to include this or did i hmm.

The denim dress is very versatile and easy to wear, you could literally throw it on and be on your way and look super chic or you could layer it and that’s exactly what we both did.
Tonye styled her denim dress in a relaxed chic way pairing it with a blue gladiator sandals and i paired mine with a white tee, bandana and sneakers.

This shoot was ah-mazing, shooting with someone else makes you realize how much fun you’ve been missing when its just you, your camera and tripod; mainly because you have someone to make jokes bout your struggles with lol. I’m sure anyone who has ever had to use a tripod stand and camera timer understands this struggle, having to press the shutter and run into frame, pose, run back and do it again, again and again arghhhh.
We did a lot of running and lot of trying to fit in the frame and it was so much fun doing it with someone else.

    Been waiting for this post since I saw a sneak pic on your snapchat. Tonye's personality is so amazing and her playfulness is actually contagious and that's one of the many things I love about her.
    I love denim dresses, I remember I owned one while I was growing up and I never actually appreciated it as much as I should have now.I love the way you both styled your outfit, truly reflects your individual personalities and style.
    Sogie I agree with you that's your signature pose. You need to come up with a name for it already.
    I think this is the longest comment I've ever typed before, I'll stop typing now.
