THEASO-EBI JUNKIE WEDDING, WEEKEND SPOTLIGHT

THEASOEBIJUNKIE WEEKEND SPOTLIGHT #thebashunion

Hello everyone,

Hope you are enjoying the long holiday if you are in Nigeria and Barka da Sallah to our Muslim community.

Today I’m bringing back your favourite series on this blog #theweekendspoltlight

This is actually the first one this year 🙈 ( check the last one HERE ) but over the weekend, a particular traditional wedding broke our timeline on different social media platforms with the hashtag #thebashunion and this triggered the need to bring back this series.

It was such a beautiful and colorful event with top celebrities and society ladies in attendance.

One striking thing about this wedding is that they didn’t choose any fabric as asoebi but they only made a uniform asooke for their party guests as asooke asoebi and it was beautiful.

Like I normally say here even though I’m a fabric vendor, when you want to choose asoebi always consider your guests. If a uniform gele be it #segogele or asooke will be perfect and affordable then it’s okay. You don’t have to use or sell fabrics as asoebi.

In this case , their party guests are high class ladies so money is not even a factor and most of these wealthy folks even give out asoebi for FREE. But it could be due to time frame because manufacturing and shipping fabrics in large quantity takes like a month to 6weeks that’s for air freight but asooke is made locally and it will be faster to get and distribute.

So choose whatever works for you and make it easy for your guests . You can choose affordable fabrics of great quality as asoebi or you can choose quality asooke gele or Sego gele for your asoebi or just pick a color code. Remember the most important thing is to have your guests honour you with their presence at your party.

Now let’s see the beautiful party guests we spotted at #thebashunion last weekend in their lemon green or Chartreuse color asooke gele asoebi:

First of the gorgeous couple ( Dara and Tosin) in all white looking super stunning

Then in their asooke traditional outfit ( Did you notice they are wearing different but complementary colors)

Now to the party guests in fabulous fabrics with the asooke :

Then some other party guests in different gorgeous designs without the asoebi gele but still caught our attention as they are spectacular in different colors also:

What do you think about #thebashunion traditional wedding? Share your thoughts in the comments section and will you use only asooke gele as asoebi for your party? Let me know why.

Cheers,

Modupe

THEASOEBIJUNKIE FABRICS, TREND ALERT

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:

Price: 25,000 Naira for 5yards

So if you have any event soon and you are still trying to figure out the kind of fabric to use for your outfit, the milk fibre lace is one fabric that is elegant, timeless and can be tagged “affordable luxury”.

It’s perfect for celebrants and party guests asoebi or siblings asoebi for birthday parties, burial parties, introduction, thanksgiving Sunday infact it’s perfect for all occasions.

In my post about the pantone color for the year HERE,  I promised to make a post stating colors that will match the color of the year – ULTRA VIOLET  perfectly incase you want to use it for your event’s asoebi or your event’s color theme. 

Here are some colors that you can combine with ultraviolet to get a perfect match :
1. White

If you want a subtle ‘feel’ as your theme this year, ultra violet and white is the way to go. This combination will be fabulous as asoebi. Get a white lace fabric plus ultra violet asooke for your guests from us and let them show up in style . 

2. Champagne 

If you want something elegant, I will advise you choose champagne gold either as your event’s color theme or guests aso-ebi. For asoebi,  ultra violet lace with champagne gold headtie or cap will do the magic

3.Green

If you are a fan of colors and you really want a vibrant theme, then green and ultra violet  will give you that colorful yet unique effect.

Pink and ultra violet is just so ‘girly’.  I love the combo and you can either use hot pink for #loud effect or baby pink for a #subtleandsexy effect. 

For aso-ebi, I will advise a baby pink fabric and ultra violet gele or cap.

This is a very classy combination. Lilac and ultra violet will be  beautiful as your event’s color theme or guest’s aso-ebi.
