Black is the New Red

I did a post on my favorite color – Red, now consider this a post on my bestfriend – Black. We know that the Little Black Dress (LBD) is a woman’s bestfriend. I’ll be talking about my law student dinner and showing you black dinner gowns law student dinner. Before I get into the fashion aspects of things, let me give you a quick recap of my dinner from when I arrived till the end.

law students dinner 

The department of Law, Bowen University, Iwo, Osun state, Nigeria, held it’s law dinner on April 27th, 2018.
In Nigeria, we feel a party is not complete without free (and good) food. This is one aspect I was impressed with during the dinner. I arrived ‘fashionably late‘. At this time, they had begun to share food. We had a three-course meal (don’t worry, pictures are on the way). The table setting was nice too.

FOOD

  
For the appetizer, we had what I saw as ‘bread and peppersoup’. I was somewhat confused on how to combine both together. If there’s anyone with a prior knowledge on this, please do share with me. I ended up just taking the soup. I knew we would have a carbohydrate-rich Entré, so I decided to leave the bread alone.

  
Our Entré fried rice and jellof, little coleslaw and chicken. I have to give it to them for the taste of the food. It was delicious, but the coleslaw was really little, and I’m a fan of coleslaw and salad. I had to eat with fork and knife, some people ditched theirs, some used only fork. I won’t lie, at a point, I ditched the knife, and used only fork. We were trying to maintain our cool kid reputation ✌ and it wasn’t easy 😪.
The dessert was a serving of cake, some people got the red velvet, mine was chocolate (at least I think it was 🤔). Some were served with ice cream, but my table got only the cake.

The Event 

Whilst we ate, awards were given, there was a brief law lecture. Our Master of Ceremony was quite interesting; a character. He was funny and brought life to the event. There were music interludes, a presentation by Kotrell, and a huge part of me was just waiting for the ‘Dance! Dance! Dance!’ part of the event. I was pumped up and ready to rumble…
However, this is a private religious school, and we are not allowed to engage in such social activities beyond 6pm. Our dance short, but we weren’t going anywhere. If you’re interested in seeing my little dance session, check my Instagram story at my handle.

Outside the hall, we had another fun time, taking pictures, meeting people, shooting shots 😉, and making noise 😌
Of you follow my instagram, you must have already seen some pictures on my highlights and my feed.

What We Wore : black dinner gowns law student dinner

The dress code was a decent black dinner gowns law student dinner, and black suit for the men.
I have a problem of indecisiveness when it comes to styling myself for major events. I easily style other people, but when it comes to me, it’s almost like there are so much ideas in my head, the problem is picking one.
At the end of it all, I went simple and minimalist. A fit and flare and ankle strap heels. I wore my trusted wristwatch and a kente material clutch my sister got for me from Ghana. My makeup by damitunmi and I decided to go natural with the hair.

Squad

    
I went with my squad (talk about squad goals) — Anne, Esther, and Leo (you’d be seeing more of them on the blog). Leo and I twinned up for the event, while Esther and Anne were another combo on their own with our black dinner gowns law student dinner.
