Nigerian Wedding Flow: Peach and Mint OOTD

Hello everyone, 

Hope y'all are doing great today! 
Lately I've been all about the outfit posts and I hope you all are fine with that (?)

Over the past weekend, it was my friend's wedding and as one of the bride's friends, I got to wear an aso-ebi (simple defined: a fabric chosen by the bride for her friends/family to sew different styles with so that they stand out at the wedding). 

My tailor (seamstress) was amazing and nailed the design of my outfit to a T! It took her about a week to make this dress and the final result blew my mind. 
I'd like to give major credit to my friend - the bride - for choosing such an amazing fabric and color! The color of the gele (headtie) she chose also complemented the peach fabric sooooooo well! 

Ohhh sweet sweet Mint and Peach! Couldn't get any more perfect for a spring wedding.
(I always knew mint and peach were a perfect match... CLICK HERE for an ootd I once blogged about with both colors). 

The wedding was so lovely and I would like to use this minute to once again, wish my friend and her new husband a very happy married life! 

Now, on to the post... Pictures were taken in abundance, but I'll try to behave myself and share just a few. Lol.. Those of you on my snapchat and instagram are probably already fed up.. but HEY, these aren't cell phone pictures, so enjoy these quality pictures I'm sharing!!! 

When you have Gele on your head, and you somehow managed to slay your makeup.. The pout pose comes automatically. Lol

Can I just mention at this point that I tied my gele and did my makeup by myself? *Toot Toot* (Yes that's the sound of me tooting my own horn...lol)

Sitting high and mighty like the Queen I am! Yaaaaasss!
(Ok, I really should get back to my modest and humble self). 

My handsome photographer.. a.k.a the Boyfrann blessed y'all with some blurry pictures.. Lol..
(But I'm posting them anyway, because I love my poses, and you get the point)..

Serving face... I think that's what the kids call it these days... ha-ha-ha-ha

And here's an upclose look at the fabric and style of my outfit.

On my nails I had Zoya Stasi layered over Zoya Tilda. 
For Shoes: I wore flat nude colored sandals since no one could see them and I didn't want high heels. As I wanted to be comfortable.

My Seamstress phone number - Please call for business only: 817-642-5355

For Makeup and Gele lessons: Pray for me to get a great video recording camera and TIME to finally start putting tutorials on youtube. Lol... I Know I'm not the best and I'm still learning myself, but enough people have asked me to put videos on youtube, and I'm finally seriously considering it.

Anyhoo darlings,
That's it for today... Comments, questions, Random remarks? Leave it in the comment box below.

Till Later, God bless.
