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:

MY BIRTHDAY PHOTOSHOOT

Hello everyone,

Good to be back! Remember my last post HERE was my annual birthday sales and I will like to say a big thank you to everyone that brought Fabrics from us during the sales period.

So I had a photoshoot for the first time in my life *covers face* and it really feels good having cameras in my face 😂😂. So I might make this a regular thing for my birthdays because life is worth celebrating.

For my photo shoot, I used two Fabrics (lace and Ankara).

The multicolored guipure lace which is of high quality is sold out now and was 30,000 Naira for 5yards. I wanted a boubou style out of and my tailor did justice to that. I felt really good and free in the boubou.

The second Fabric is a multicolored Ankara Fabric which is still available in 2 color mix and it’s just 5,000 Naira for 6yards. I didn’t use the whole 6yards because I made a shift dress with wide sleeves (really love the style) and my kids made use of the remaining fabric.

Both Fabrics looked amazing on my skin tone ,my braids were styled and my makeup artist did beat my face that I couldn’t recognize myself Lol

Enough of my stories, let’s see the evidence in pictures:

What do you think about my pictures? And what’s your favorite outfit?

Share your thoughts in the comments section and send me birthday wishes. Yes it’s not too late 😃

Wishing you a wonderful day ahead .

Cheers,

Native Wardrobe Staples

Through this blog I have discovered that some people do not know ‘jack’ about fabrics and their native wear wardrobe is as good as non- existing.

They wear blazers, suits,shirts, corporate dresses and pants to work during the week, tank tops and jeans on weekends. Am not just talking about people living abroad but there are people like that in Naija too.
Their first native wear might be their traditional outfit on their traditional wedding day or a very close family member Asoebi.
Some people have never even tied gele on their head before *lol*

And I think it is necessary to infuse our roots/heritage into our closets as African prints and African fabrics are taking over the contemporary fashion world.
That’s why I have compiled a small list of staples I think every African woman should have in their closets for that traditional look to work on Fridays or to worship service on Sunday as well as any event that you didn’t get their Asoebi but still want to rock and slay them elegantly.
