Omo Ibo

12:51 PM

Hi Guys!
I have wanted to dress up like a proper ibo woman for a long time now (for those who dont know, Ibo is a Nigerian tribe(and im not ibo)). so when my friends sister was getting married and i heard the aso ebi(fabric that friends/family will wear to the wedding) was lace and velvet i knew it was finally my opportunity to rock the ibo blouse and wrapper.
instead of making the lace bit just a blouse i made it into a dress so i could wear it again
and instead of sewing the velvet bit into a skirt i just tied it around my waist. i will use the fabric to make another dress in the nearer future.
so now i shall have three outfits/dresses. cool ey?
Also, check out my makeup. im getting better i think, made myself up for the wedding and i was very proud. My headtie however was tied by Deola, but i have learnt how to tie it now and im a badass gele queen *komoles*
Also please dont forget to nominate me for best fashion blog at the nigerian blog awards, just click here and follow the easy steps
