Good day lovelies, i seriously cant be MIA, what happened to my resolutions? I have been attending seminars, interviews and putting stuffs together to improve my blog for you my amiable readers.
During weddings and ceremonies here in Nigeria, we tend to look our best, there is always a dress code called the 'asoebi'. In weddings the brides always have her train. we Nigerians are very colorful and fashionable. This post is intended to show you how to RECYCLE and REUSE.

You know that moment where you cant say no to a dear friend, If she ask you to be on her train. You spend a fortune to look your best and also get this uniform dress the bridesmaids wear. It can really be painful if you spent a fortune to acquire the dress and dont get to wear them anymore. I was inspired by tanesha of www.girlwithcurves.com  never to do away with such dresses, HERE is what she did with hers.
This is what I did with mine :
Remixed bridal dress, remixed with a nice top tied to the side.



Remixed with jeans jacket tied to the front.
 
The original bridesmaid  dress. 

Tanesha of girlwithcurves, that was how she remixed hers.
