Hihi lovelies,

Trust you all have been well?
I’ve been well and also very busy with work and the other things I’m trying my hands on,and it’s been pretty rewarding!(i will share this with you in another post soon)

I made a post recently on my IG handle @morieniikeji on the offshoulder trend being a “band wagon” that I’ve easily hopped on and can’t seem to get off from.And trust me when I say I doubt if I am anytime soon!😄

Now,this trend may seem a bit “risqué” for some,but I assure you a little show of those shoulder blades wouldn’t hurt no one 😉  and  I being more of a conservative  “fashionista” would probably say the offshoulder trend is my current *risqué outfit* indulgence !!LOL and please do indulge me all the way until I either get tired of it or get tired of sewing it! (Trust me,it’s sooo easy to make that I doubt this)

I’ve seen varying versions and interpretations of this trend in different fabric textures and silhouettes as it has become the go to outfit to almost all social scenes,be it a movie night or a cocktail party or even a wedding party.

Thought to share with you some of the few I made for me and a few friends since I caught the bug 🙂
Happy viewing!

 And if you’re interested in hopping on this trend and you need some help,just hit me up on my personal email address and I’ll hook you up at an affordable cost .

Here’s cheers to the rest of your Tuesday being beautiful!



Quick Style- Iro ‘n’ buba

Hihi friends,

Its been few days between us…hope you’re all still pushing through life and living it deliberately?

Here’s a quick one on one of the easiest,most flattering trends on the Nigerian fashion scene (seemingly creeping into the other international scenes too)-the silk and or Chiffon blouse and wrapper otherwise known as Iro and buba.

Iro and buba is a traditional Yoruba(one of the three major tribes in Nigeria) outfit that has been worn over a long period of time…a cultural symbol of dignity and status amongst women worn in different ways and recently modified into the one now referred to as silk/chiffon iro and buba.

Normally,silk or chiffon prints aren’t the typical fabrics of choice for the traditional iro and buba outfit but Fashion is about recreating and debunking the ‘donts’ of ‘normality'(in whatever context you may think it is)

You’ll agree with me its one of the best things that’s ever happened to the fashion scene as its so easy to wear ,flattering almost all body types…it exudes style,class and glamour…all depending on how you wear it…pair it with a pair of flatties(flat shoes),you’re looking effortlessly chic…pair it with a pricey (or not)pair of pumps,you look glam…be it in Africa or Europe, you’re good to go…we sure are loving this trend#smile

Sharing with you some iro and buba outfits made by my label “Vathiswa by Hester”….

Let’s keep living deliberately!
