Tiger Tem Loves a Hot Date

Its the weekend and you know I wouldn't leave you hanging.

This for me is the quintessential hot date outfit. A sexy little dress that's supremely stylish in a very feminine colour with some rather fabulous accessories!

Dress - Graham & Spencer
The simple, structured shape of the dress would look fabulous on most body types and I adore this shade of pink. The cocktail ring,well I had to really. A bobby dazzler is one of my signature pieces on an evening out and trust me, I have A LOT!

If you don't know Graham & Spencer, get to know. The South African & English duo Simple, contemporary, stylish, sophisticated shapes from the creators of Velvet.

Earrings - Roberta Chiarella
Discovered her years ago in InStyle and it was love at first bling. We have lots of similar earrings in our Tiger Tem Boutique so if you're in Lagos make sure you pop in to check them out.

Clutch - Glorinha Parangua
This stunning little clutch adds a bold jolt of colour to the outfit. Those who know me well know I'm not a fan of matchy-matchy accessories and its little pieces like this that make an outfit a lot more exciting.

Brazilian designer, with a gem of a store in Ipanema....its these lacquered bamboo clucthes that put her firmly on the fashion map.

Bangles - (similar on
The bangles add some colour without competing with the rest of the outfit and the gold edge keeps it glam.

Cocktail Ring - Kenneth Jay Lane
Love, love, love his jewellery. Its fun, eye catching and very, very glamourous...which sounds like an all round winner to me.

Shoes - Christian Louboutin
I'm a little obsessed right? But I LOVE these. Never has a shoe been soooooo damn sexy!

This is great if you want something a little more relaxed as this is the perfect day to evening option. Chocolate brown is a great colour that works on most people and is a softer alternative to black.

Top - BB DakotaThe vintage style detail stops this top makes this top infinitely more stylish and the low V neck makes it very sexy without being over the top.

The Skinny Jeans -
I don't own a pair of jeans this light but they look great don't they? I think I've just decided what I need next on my shopping list!

I love Paige jeans...they are by far my sexiest pair of jeans. Seriously. I'm yet to wear then without getting complemented on them. The company was founded by Paige Adams-Geller, an ex fit-model known for having the best butt in the business who had been a fit model for top brands such as 7 For All Mankind, Lucky Brand, Citizens of Humanity and Guess. I guess she really knew how to make her money maker work for her!

The Bangles
How much do you love these bangles? I'm loving bangles at the moment as you might have noticed. Browns and gold win me over every time. We have some great ones in our temporary online boutique These fabulous feathered ones are from

The Belt - Roberto Cavalli
I can't say his name without rolling the R, as in Rrrrrrrooooooberrrrrto. Cos you know if you met him that's how he sounds. the original Italian Stallion Lothario! Love his style, he's managed to channel, OTT sex appeal and glamour without making women look like tramps!

The Sunglasses - Tiger Tem
They will be in the boutique soon, I promise!

The Clutch - Anya Hindmarch
The UK's most famous bag lady. Love this cute little clutch and the raffia gives it a chic summery feel.

The Shoes - Christian Louboutin
I know, I really must stop obsessing. But that day is not today. Don't you just love the way these shoes take this outfit up so many notches in the style stakes?

The bamboo clutch is an amazing color, hmm Anya anya, totally love her bags but cant bring myself to buy any,lol! It doesnt make sense esp as they dnt cost the earth.

For skinny jeans check out Uniqlo,I swear by them, there 25pounds but fantastic japanese demin and better than any expensive brand and if ur really slim there like a glove!
