Friday- African Attire

I'm wearing one of my nigerian native outfits in its entirety.The last time, i wore just the bottom piece. Click here to see how i wore just the bottom. Today i've got on top and bottom, and my favorite black blazer to give it a bit of office-appropriate sophistication.

I walked into the office this afternoon, and to my happy surprise, the office was decorated in colorful X-mas decorations. There seems to be a palpable excitement in the air. Is it just me, or do people seem happier at this time of year? People seem nicer, more at ease and even more jovial. And i have to say i really love it.

Hopefully, i will be attending a holiday party tonight. I say hopefully because lately, i'm really tired when i get home at the end of the day. So when i make plans to go out later in the evening (after work), i end up sleeping right thru numerous alarms and phone calls to wake up and go out. I 'm glad i have understanding friends and family who have not given up on me even though it seems i have a problem staying awake after 11pm. Again, hopefully history does not repeat itself.

This is what i wore:
Native Atire (Custom-Made)
Blazer (Thrifted)
Shoes (Joey O)

Hey, welcome to my blog. :) So glad you stopped by. I really enjoy meeting new readers!!

I find the print on your dress to be as exquisite as the fine pop of red your heels provide. Great mix!! :)

This dress is so elegant and beautiful. Did you get it made in Georgia or in Nigeria? When I was in London last year I met many African-born immigrants who had their clothes made by tailors from their countries living in London. I was so envious!
