Event: Nigeria's Independence Party
Where: Nigeria Embassy
Summary: I was thisclose to wearing a non-traditional outfit because I didn't have any made for this event. But then I remembered that I have a few leftover asoebi outfits in my closet. Also, my sis made a good point that since it was Independence Day and we were heading to an Independence Day party, it would be right to showcase your pride by wearing a Nigerian traditional outfit. So, I decided to go with a dress I wore a couple of months ago for a wedding. I actually did a post about it here (click the link also to see the definition of 'asoebi', for all ya'll confused folks). The next step was to remix the dress. I wore it with purple heels to bring out the little specks of purple in the dress. Rocked what is soon becoming my favorite black bag that I got from Buffalo Exchange in NYC. Last time I applied a slightly hot pink lipstick. This time around, I went for a bright coral shade. Finally, went with minimal jewelry.

We're in the month of October. Hence, the best freakin' month of the year! Why? Because I was born during this month. Duh. *flip braids*
Have a great week, everyone!
