What I Wore to a Nigerian Wedding + How to Avoid a Bad Tailoring Experience In Lagos

Being a Yoruba-Nigerian, weddings are an exceptionally important part of our Culture. Firstly, in the Yoruba culture, when there is a wedding, most of the time, the family hosting the wedding and or their friends choose what is called aso-ebi (some sort of “uniform” for the occasion). Secondly, a Yoruba-Nigerian do not just attend weddings, we attend them in grand style. Thirdly, we have so much fun at Nigerian weddings (in general) with so much to eat, drink and great music to dance to.

I have been in Lagos for my Brother-in law’s daughter’s wedding and this is one of the outfits I wore for the ceremony. Yep, in this post, I will be sharing the details of the look with you and I will also be sharing how to avoid a bad tailoring experience with you….

By the way, I have more wedding outfit posts coming your way but for starters, do check out:

5 Fashion Trends Must Have for Summer 2019

Year in year out, we see some trends from the runway that we consider not wearable. I am one of those ones who consider some trends not wearable. Why? For me, before I put my money on any fashion item, I want to be sure that I can wear the piece in multiple different ways. This helps me save money as I don’t need to buy clothes all the time and saves me time too as I would always have what to wear. However, this Spring/Summer, runway fashion came with a bang a.k.a – pieces that everyday girl like myself can wear. So, today, I bring you 5 wearable trends for this Summer. Let’s check it out….

 

Your Dreams MUST Remain Alive & Forever Too

Happy Easter guys and welcome to a brand new week. I haven’t opened a blog like that in a while 🙂 Hope your weekend went well, mine went really well and I’m grateful for everything. Allow me share some of the FAB things I did with you…..

First, I spent time with 12 boys and girls doing leaving cert this year to empower, encourage and motivate them to do their best to be who they want to be and much more covering overcoming setbacks, sticking with your own plan and staying in your own lane and much more. I am really grateful to everyone who came to support this little vision of mine – Julianah Ilori provided all the brunches and prayed for and with the Children, Precious Alli gave a talk on College life and Samuel helped us to revise leaving cert (higher and ordinary level) with the Children. It was really good and the feedback from the Children have been nothing but positive. I am truly pleased and grateful that everything went well. On Sunday, I was at a 50th birthday party with my family and I was the Compere (MC) at the party. It was a very busy but a great weekend for me. Enough about me, I was YOURS? Please share what you did with me in the comments section below….
