Fall looks and the fashion trend is here, the recession is real and I know we will like to look fashionable but not break the bank. This post is a DIY post to save the day! I will be showing us how to make 3 different neck chokers with just one choker.

The Choker trend is one that made a huge come back this year and it isn't going anywhere soon! From the ribbon chokers, to the fabric chokers, then the rope chokers, denim chockers, bead chokers and scarfs turned choker! All are trending. Here is what you need: 
. Scissors
. Needle
. Thread
. Button
. Chain
. Cloth Ribbon
. Pendant
. Plaster
. Measuring tape.
All the items listed and pictured above can be gotten from a tailoring store, I got mine from the fabric line at tejuosho market in Yaba Lagos Nigeria.

For the First Choker -
. Take a measurement of your neck
. Using the measurement, cut out the Cloth ribbon.
. Cut out a small piece of the plaster ( the plaster isn't the ones used in hospitals, but the ones found on bags or sneakers or wedding gowns, it is simply put, used as a closure)
. Sew the plaster on both ends of the cloth ribbon, sew it in reverse order (one on top , the order below, this is to enable you close both ends. N.B - you can sew on with a sewing machine or needle and thread.
. And the first choker is ready!

For the Second Choker -
. Using the First choker, make a hole with your pendant on the choker ( cloth ribbon turned choker) and let your pendant hang on there! The Second choker is ready

For the third chocker -
. Still using the First DIY Choker, with a needle and thread, sew on the button and chain as seen in this picture on the choker, make sure to use a smaller and thinner needle. The 3rd choker is ready

For a full and comprehensive video on how I made the 3 choker in 1minute, kindly follow me and check it out on my Instagram handle : @divauju
Which chocker is your fave? Will you try them out? If you do, kindly tag me or mail me on
NB: If you can't find the plaster, just tie the Cloth Ribbon making a bow round your neck.

Hi lovelies, it feels good to be back. I have been away for a little too long in the east, Anambra State Nigeria precisely for my late grandma's burial. I was so busy that i couldn't blog, but am back, so watch this SPACE  for sights and sounds from the east

Happy New Month! Welcome to the "ember" quarter of the year. So I am starting a Fashion DIY channel, I will always find a way to link it here on the blog, so watch out! Today, I will be showing a practical demonstration on how I transformed my bronze hoop earring, using African print "Ankara" I have had this bronze earring for 5 years now, it started wearing off, then I tot to myself why discard it? Just transform it! So I got some pieces left from the Ankara material I made a dress from, and Viola a new earring was born! THINGS YOU NEED:
Ankara fabric (Quite Small to go round your earring or pieces from your tailors shop) make sure to select the pieces with lovely, regular pattern.A hoop earringUhu gum (a garment friendly adhesive)Scissors 

Cut through the fabric vertically, long enough to go round the earring, Cut the tip of the already cutout vertical fabric into an inverted triangle shape, this is to make it tip smaller and easier to start wrapping at the beg…


Happy Saint Valentine's day all, how are you spending the day? So while browsing through instagram, to see who got flowers, engaged, who said yes or did something different, I came across this lovely picture and write up from Asiko the artist page and I couldn't resist sharing!
