Here's looking at you kid:)))
I couldn't wait to try out my new Lime Crime 'Venus grunge' palette.
As I mentioned earlier in my previous post, the rich reds & browns of the palette reminded me so much of home.
It inspired me to wear my Nigerian traditional outfit called
Iru & Buba.
The LADY in RED.

In the Yoruba culture,we have an outfit we call Iro & Buba.
The Iro is the bottom half which is a wrap skirt and Buba is the top.
You can use whatever material/print you want for the style.
Choosing a vibrant color or print is the best way to go,because you'll stand out.
Ankara, velvet,cotton & Lace are some of the fabrics used in sewing Iro ati Buba.
You can also wear your Iro and Buba with a gele to pump it up a noth or for special events.
Gele is a head gear/wear/piece. It also comes in different material/print. Learning how to wrap a gele is not a difficult, but it takes some practice.
Have a great week darlings and lets really make 2015 our BEST year yet!
I'm sooooooo READY!
The Quote of the week is....................
On a side note, my darling friend Maria came to visit me from LA.
It's always great to see her and she's more like a sister than a friend. It's so crazy to think we've know each other for about 10 years now. Wow how time flies.
