Modern Traditional

African print3

Hi everyone! How was your Memorial Day weekend? Did you do anything special or travel?

African print jacket

I had an amazing weekend. Besides attending a wedding on Saturday, I finally had my party yesterday, which was awesome. I can't wait to share the pictures with you guys. You can keep up with me on Facebook or Twitter for possible sneak peeks.

Since I didn't have any celebration for my birthday or graduation, I decided to combine both celebrations together. The party took place at our place with about 25-30 friends and some uninvited guests, which was a bit annoying. Despite that, I didn't let that mess up my night. We all danced, ate and talked until 3am. I didn't go in to bed until almost 4am.

Regarding my outfit, it was made with African ankara fabric for a wedding I attended a week ago. I came up with the idea/design and my wonderful tailor made it. Usually, for most Nigerian weddings, the couple picks out a fabric and have their friends wear it as a uniform for the wedding. If you remember, I applied the same concept to my wedding here.

I have barely slept since yesterday and I also had my hair braided today, which hurts as hell; so I am heading straight to bed.

Thank you for always stopping by and with your sweet comments

I love this Ankara suit! I'm getting really into contemporary African designs. It's so refreshing to see so much tradition updated for a younger more modern generation :)
