Yesssssssssss guys!! So this weekend we attended a Nigerian traditional wedding, now if you know Nigerians then you know that they like to go all out with their traditional clothes. Bright colours, big ย tied head scarfs and alittle of gold jewellery lol i really do love attending Nigerian events. So this time when we got invited to the traditional wedding i started thinking of outfits for me and my friend, outfits that would have an african vibe but also look modern. When i went to zambia this summer i had one of my friend design me a dress so thatโ€™s the dress i wore to the traditional wedding, i then got one of african long skirts and dressed it up with a dark red off the shoulder crop-top and dressed my girl Chiedza ๐Ÿ˜ she really did look beautiful .. Even if i say so myself ๐Ÿ˜Š

Lets see some pictures!ย 

Belt from eBay for ยฃ2! This is my favourite belt if you donโ€™t know .. But Iโ€™m sure youโ€™ve already noticed hahaย 

Now i love colour but this is my first pink outfit ๐Ÿ™ˆ i know crazy right! But i love it .. I wasnโ€™t too sure about it at first but the dress really looked pretty.ย 

The dress was a great length as i was wearing mid heels underth so it wasnโ€™t dragging on the ground. I wanted something fitted, dramatic yet simple and understated and i thinkย my designer did that beautifully๐Ÿ˜ ย 

Because the dress had some sliver/black lines, a nice little sliver/goldish clutch bag would look great! P.s my shoes were matching aswell lol ( dark redย mid heels) i just forgot to take a picture of them ๐Ÿ˜‰ย 

Look #2ย 

I love creating outfits in my mind and trying them out on my friends or drawing images of ย outfits and trying to recreate them in person ๐Ÿ˜„ (i need more friends, i know). So when my girl Cheidza asked me to help her find/put together an african outfit for her to wear at the wedding i was sooo excited!! Like yes please ๐Ÿ˜ย 

So i went back to my closet and picked up a long African full skirt and we matched that with a dark red off the shoulder crop top from misguided ยฃ18 ย and a gold chunky braclet from misguided ยฃ5 but you can find similar ones on eBay for a cheaper price.ย 

You tell me.. Didnโ€™t she just kill it! ๐Ÿ˜ yesssssssss girl!!ย 

The colours came out so beautifully on her skin tone, she really looked beautiful ๐Ÿ™Œย 

We changed her shoes to black mid heels from primark ( ยฃ12) because i didnโ€™t like the random pink shoes if you noticed them lolย 

Look #3ย 

My girlfriend Ife had her outfit specially made in Nigeria for this traditional wedding as she was one of the brides maids for her older sister. They all had matching coloured outfits..ย 

Ive never seen Ife look so grown and beautiful, she was glowinggggggย 

Of course my eyes were looking at them beautiful sparkling shoes ๐Ÿ˜ Ife isnโ€™t into heels so 10mins after this picture was taken she took them off lol

The ๐Ÿ‘ฐ bride herself!ย 

Thatโ€™s Bukky and her father (Ifeโ€™s older sister) she looked out of this world! It was such a great evening watching herย and her husband celebrate Love and i wish the best in their marriage ๐Ÿ’—

Father, mother and the bride๐Ÿ˜ .. Cant wait for my own ๐Ÿ˜‰ lol donโ€™t worry guys i have a long way until then.ย 

Anyways guys i hope you enjoyed this little blog and Iโ€™m hoping to do another one on African outfit ideas so be on a look out for that! ๐Ÿ˜Š let me leave you with some more pictures and videos.. Enjoy!ย
