BOUBOU STYLES

Hello everyone,

Hope y’all doing well? I promised to be consistent but I haven’t kept to my promise in my last post HERE

But as they say it’s better late than never 😉

Eid holidays will soon be here and you get to see loads of rams up for sale around Lagos at this time which is a reminder that Eid- Kabir is around the corner.

Fashion wise, it’s a time where the whole family source for fabrics perfect for Eid.

One of the most comfortable outfits yet elegant styles for women at this time is the BOUBOU style. It’s easy to make and very comfortable to wear as you can move around, serve food, attend to visitors during the festive season.

The last time I had a party and I was confused on what to make with my asoebi because I didn’t have enough time to get it to a tailor on time infact I had less than 24hrs and I just didn’t want to make iro and buba, I just asked someone to make my fabric into a BOUBOU and I got it ready in less than 1hr. I just matched it a turban, long earrings, bracelet and wristwatch and I was so happy unfortunately I didn’t get to take pictures which would have been perfect for this post.

But here, I have some beautiful BOUBOU style options for you to choose from incase you are opting for the comfortable yet elegant look:

Guipure laces are one of the best fabrics for boubou styles but the truth is I have seen amazing boubou styles made from tulle laces, adire fabrics, brocade fabrics and even Ankara fabrics. So it all depends on your budget. You can use guipure lace, cord lace, milk fibre lace (like I showed you in my last post HERE), silk fabric, chiffon fabric etc

On choosing colors for boubou, I personally love the classic white for boubous. White colour is versatile as you can match it with any color of turban or asooke and it’s so easy to accessorize.

Also depending on your body size, you can opt for a colorful fabric, prints or plain. I love to use plain fabric even though in my last birthday photo shoot HERE I wore a multicoloured guipure lace boubou which was so beautiful but because my fashion language is subtle yet stunning I still prefer plain fabrics for boubou.

Let see more pictures:

NEW FABRIC ALERT: MILK FIBRE LACE

Hello everyone,

It’s been a long time I posted on here but we have been active on our social media pages.( Please follow us @theasoebijunkie on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter)

This is actually my first post in 2019 ( covers face) and the year is half gone already. Let me just say I just got out of #writersblock because I keep trying to bring content here but some issues either from business or family will take up my time and I kept postponing.

But here we are today , a new post finally and I hope to continue to be consistent from now on.

So there’s a new kid in the block of fashion fabrics and I thought to show you guys this beautiful , skin friendly, comfortable and easy breezy fabric called MILK FIBRE LACE.

MILK FIBRE LACE is so similar to guipure but it’s lighter than guipure on the body and so soft on the skin.

I personally love this fabric because it’s versatile and beautiful. It feels light but of a good density and quality.

It’s a timeless classic (especially the white colour ) which is perfect for boubou or A-LINE dresses. You can style MILK FIBRE LACE into our evergreen top and wrapper aka iro and buba or make a shift dress.

Here are some pictures of this gorgeous fabric in beautiful colors that we have available for sale:

PANTONE COLOR OF THE YEAR 2018 – ULTRA VIOLET

Lovely day to you all,  as our custom every year we bring to you the forecast color by Pantone which most times is the color that trend all through the year in the fashion world. 

So if you’re having your wedding this year and you are still trying to choose a color theme, Pantone says Ultraviolet is the go to color for 2018.

According to Pantone, Ultraviolet is ” A dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade, PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.

Color of the Year 2018 - Quote from Lee Eiseman

Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own”. 

Enigmatic purples have also long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, and artistic brilliance. Musical icons Prince, David Bowie, and Jimi Hendrix brought shades of Ultra Violet to the forefront of western pop culture as personal expressions of individuality. Nuanced and full of emotion, the depth of PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet symbolizes experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets.

Historically, there has been a mystical or spiritual quality attached to Ultra Violet. The color is often associated with mindfulness practices, which offer a higher ground to those seeking refuge from today’s over-stimulated world. The use of purple-toned lighting in meditation spaces and other gathering places energizes the communities that gather there and inspire connection. 

In our next post, we will be listing other colors that can match ultra violet perfectly for your asoebi color combination or for your event color theme.
