Bridal Party

In Nigeria where i'm from, when a lady is getting married, her friends wear only a certain fabric that she has chosen. This is called an "ashoebi". you can design this fabric in any style you choose but once you are spotted in this ashoebi, it is recognised by people at the wedding ceremony that you are a friend of the bride. One of my friends got married this weekend and of course my bestie and i bought the ashoebi. We were really late in buying it and thus had problems finding a designer. Luckily, Vivi from Heart, print and style came through and gave me the number of her designer and we ran off there to meet her. I was really pleased with the result of my dress because we went in for our consultation on monday and picked up the dresses on saturday morning, so i thought she did a fantastic job. I decided to make the necklace i wore with the ashoebi and i just strung some multi stranded pearls.




My bestie Anne...

I love how your Ashoebi turned out!!! It is has a great 40s/50s vintage feel! Your necklace is perfect with it and your makeup is on point! Loving that hint of red in your hair! Very classy and subtle. Kiah
