So I attended a former classmate’s wedding in Ibadan over the weekend and it was a mini reunion for us.
I couldn’t buy the ‘aso-ebi’ (selected uniform fabric) for the wedding as I wasn’t sure I would attend but I made up my mind last week. I mostly never make up my mind about these things until the last minute, remember my post about ‘what to wear to parties when you don’t have the aso-ebi’? Well this is similar as I had my friend (the one who made that lovely dress I wore here) make something in the same chosen colour for me. That was a bit hard because she was swamped with work so I had to design a simple two-piece along with her. I had seen something similar on her so I just made some changes to suit my own style. Long story short, she did not get the time to make my dress until Thursday night/Friday morning, I had to go stay with her so she could finish up my friend’s own too. She was so stressed out, I started feeling bad for dumping it on her at the last minute.
I had the worst vision for this outfit, trust me, I didn’t even think it would come out looking nice.
The colours chosen were Teal and Peach so I paired the outfit with peach neck beads and shoes, complete with a silver clutch purse borrowed from my mum
I turned up twinning with my friend, who by the way is responsible for that fabulous face-beat you see (she was so patient with me despite all my wahala).
I also admired some of my old school mates and what they sewed with their own fabrics.

Have a great week ahead!
