2015 ASOEBI COLORS: YELLOW

Hello my lovelies,

Thank God its Monday! How was your weekend? If you are in Nigeria, how was the elections in your area? I pray that the right/best person emerge as the winner even as we wait for INEC’s declaration.

In my post on Friday, I mentioned that there will be no owambe this weekend because of the elections. But to my amazement yesterday when I opened my instagram page, I saw tags of party guests in beautiful fashion fabrics at a traditional wedding on Sunday *shocked*
It just boils down to the fact that Nigerians are happy people and not even the elections can stop us from putting our dancing shoes on and party all the way when we want to (proudly Naija)

Today, am bringing to you another edition of the 2015 asoebi colors series with focus on the color – YELLOW
This color reminds me of the hymn chorus …….all things bright and beautiful…………
Yellow is one color that naturally pops on our dark skin and make us shine bright like the sun as seen on stylish party guests in the pictures below:

Thats the goodness of the butterfly color! You can see the way the color glows on different skin tones in different fabrics especially the guipure lace which is currently the rave of the moment as per fashion fabrics in Nigeria and across Africa.

If you have any color in mind that you will like me to feature in these series, kindly send a mail to theasoebijunkie@gmail.com and your color will be next in line.

Do have a blessed week ahead.

FABRICANNA

Hello my lovelies,
This weekend will be owambe/party free *sobs* as we all step out to choose a leader for our great country Nigeria #votenotfight.
But on here, I will keep updating you with fashion fabrics ideas and styles to inspire you in making super gorgeous appearance at your next owambe after the elections.
So, today am introducing a new series tagged FABRICANNA where I pick a particular asoebi fabric for a certain event and showcase how party guests turnup in different styles at the event.
My very first asoebi fabric in this series was used for an 80th birthday celebration. The blue and white Ankara fabric was from Vlisco and guests mixed it with different fabrics like guipure lace, dry lace, tulle, velvet etc to ‘spice’ up the fabric and appear at
the occassion looking elegant and super stylish.
Here are pictures of some of the guests for your perusal:
