I'm one of those people you can call a keeper. I can keep a preserve a piece of clothing, accessory, present, almost anything for years. Although most of it is because I get emotionally attached to things because they remind me of one experience, person or period of time amongst other excuses. Lol.
During the week, I decided to play around with some of my old clothes and stuff that other people would have discarded by now, but what started off as a jobless person's mess turned around to a blog post I've been so excited about. I styled my younger sister, combining some of my old pieces to create a trendy look. I also did her make up. Hehehe.
Model: Uchechi Ojiaka.
Make up and Styling: Chizitere Ojiaka.
Creative contributor: Makuochi Okafor.
See pictures after this paragraph:
In the pictures above, she's wearing a skirt up to her chest to make it look like a boob-tube dress and the belt over tummy helps step up the look of the dress. I paired it with a jacket to lift the outfit.
These next set were done with an African theme in mind. I decided to blend our ankara with our conventional outfits. My friend Makuochi who is very creative advised me on this.
So what do you think about my "Ashes to gold collection"? Although I'm not looking to taking up fashion or photography or any of those professionally and I'm just working my creativity, I hope these pieces are good enough at least. :)
