Today's style post comes courtesy of an old friend. We've known each other for at least 16 years, and when it was time for him to get married, he asked Cakes to do the honor of making their traditional wedding cake. I was especially thrilled to attend because it would be a mini-reunion of my university friends. There were a lot of hugs, smiles, laughter and genuine pleasure at seeing each other. Congrats to A and B!
The asoebi for the wedding was this beautiful delicate peach (it looks like peach to me) lace. Ordinarily, I would have made separates again, but being inspired by my Pink Lace and Silver Wrapping outfit, I decided to go for a blouse and wrapper.
The guys wore matching aso oke caps. Cakes made his in the fila style.
Have you guys noticed that I prefer not to tie a gele? The only times I agreed were for my wedding, my sister's wedding and my father-in-law's funeral. It's not that I don't think they're nice - it's just not my style. Besides I liked having my fro out for this wedding.
I'm beefing my tailor by the way, because he spoiled my material - luckily for him (and me), it's in a hidden spot.
Have I ever mentioned that I like art a lot? I'm the kind of person who, while driving down the road, wants to leave the car to take photos of all the sculptures I see. I may not be able to interpret what every art piece means, but I quite enjoy them.
I don't think I knew about the Eyo Festival (Google it) before leaving Nigeria for university. I didn't grow up in Lagos, and the masquerades I used to see in Rivers State certainly didn't look like this one. But I think they're quite fascinating. Nigerian culture is very rich and I wish I had more time to explore.
Have a pretty day! xoxo
P.S. This was the cake from the Cakesiena Team
