I wasn't going to put up this post now, but I have too many pictures from me and Cakes' Dubai trip and then my subsequent jaunt over to my other homeland. I was going to post those first, and then post this one after, but the pictures are too nice jo, so I'm sharing now.
If you guys have noticed, I don't really wear that much traditional attire, and when I do, I prefer them as separates or in "Western" styles (like here) - pencil skirt with a t-shirt, or trad top with jeans, etc. It's not that I don't like them. It's that going to look for materials, then getting a tailor to sew, and the waiting period where you think your tailor has kidnapped your outfit, etc just stresses me out. Anyways, the point of my rambling is that I finally got my very own, first, grown-up Iro and Buba!
My girl, Stylefash would wear them day in and out if you allow her, and I just couldn't understand why. However, after this past Sunday, I must admit that I'm a convert. I'd like to buy bunches and bunches of material and make like 50!!! Please recommend places or businesses where I can buy good quality, but responsibly priced materials :) This one was gotten from O and G, a new business owned by a family friend. I'll get her contact details and share here. I chose this print because of the peacock details and I thought the color would look fabulous against my dark skin. Do you agree?
Without further ado...
