Stephen Richards said “A barrier is a limitation only when you perceive it as one”. We schooling at different countries should not be a limit to working together. One of the reasons why I started blogging is get to meet different people with the same sense of style. I met Balqueez on Instagram HERE, she is also a Blogger LINK HERE in Kharkov Ukraine . One of the outfits I liked at first sight on her blog was the Palazzo with off white belt and when she wore boots with heels on SNOW, OKAY!!! Giving us some inspiration right there. Apart from fashion we do have something else in common which is drum roll! DIMPLES but hers are more pronounced. Scroll down to see pictures.
Moving on to the reason for this collaboration, Nigeria is 58 today. Balqueez and I decided to wear outfits that represent NIGERIA that is The Flag and Cultural Wear.
A Muslim fashion blogger who likes to travel, is into face care and reads books. Today she symbolizes the Nigerian Flag, Green which represent Nigeria’s natural wealth, and the white represents peace.
SNEAKERS: Olko Ukraine
HEAD TIE: Thrifted
Before making this dress I wanted something off shoulder and not the random off shoulder cape dress. I remember seeing this style on Instagram and I showed my mum, we went ahead to see the tailor with the Ankara Material. Ankara to me symbolize TOGETHERNESS. Meaning we are one NIGERIA. When I see someone on Ankara there is a sense of connection and an easy way to start a conversation. If you noticed the bag which was made by my high school classmate some years back has a different pattern from my dress, thereby clashing patterns.
BAG: Made by a Friend.
Nigeria Independence Day is one of the biggest celebration we do observe here in school, which I always look forward to. The Jollof rice, different soups like Pepper soup, Ogbono soup which is made from Okra or Dry Ogbono seed and popularly described as the soup that draws is my favorite soup. All this varieties just reminds me of home. And to be honest I am proud to be Nigerian are You?
Do contact me or Balqueez if you want to collaborate.
Happy Independence Day to you all!!
