I'm slowly counting down, re: my big news from yesterday. Because of the changes coming very soon, it's making me a little nostalgic for having custom-made outfits courtesy of Nigerian tailors. In the States, having a simple ankara dress made for you can run from $80 and above. Seriously, take a look at some designers that sell ankara clothes abroad, and you'll see a simple pencil skirt for $100 +! Having tailors at cheaper prices here is something that I'll definitely miss.
Anyways, before the tears start, let's go ahead with this post. Over the weekend, Cakes' friend got married and the pink lace asoebi came with a teal gele. As I mentioned in this post, I don't like to wear geles, so I asked my tailor to turn it into a top.
I got LOTS of compliments on the outfit - someone said I looked very different from everybody else *blushes*
Okay, I have to confess that I allowed everyone to believe this was my hair. In my defense, all they said was "Oh I love your hair. Your hair is so pretty! How long have you been natural? 10 years, wow! So beautiful!" All I said in response was, "Thank you." I didn't lie about anything, did I? :D
Have I told you guys that my new favorite lipstick is by Zaron Cosmetics?
I got a little naughty at a point and marked my boyfriend.
It WAS a little firm, but that didn't stop me from dancing a lot :D If you follow me on Snapchat, you would have seen all the dancing... so follow me now - BerryDakara.
I also posted some videos of dancing and twirling on Instagram - also BerryDakara.
A fun time was had, even though I was late - I had to attend the My 2016 Goals Workshop beforehand and it started/ran late.
Oh, and this is the cake Cakes made by the way.
