OOTD - DIY COLD SHOULDER

This post is because I have been learning a new skill and I am enjoying it. Happy new year everyone! So this is my first post for the year 2017, I have been holidaying in the eastern part of Nigeria, Anambra precisely and it's been fun, I shared some of my village chronicles on my Instagram page @divauju you can check it out.

So the cold shoulder trend was a huge one
in 2016 and I can bet it will stay with us in 2017. About the new skill I am currently learning, which is sewing! I talked about it HERE and how beneficial it has been to me. I made this cold shoulder top myself, with the help of my tailor friend @Chyomzy8 from a Hitarget Ankara material, gifted to me by my mum.


I paired this cold shoulder top with a midi bodcon skirt, a Choker and a 3inch black suede shoe.

I single handedly sewed one for my sister, since I already learned how to sew a cold shoulder top. The good thing about learning a skill are : You get to save some bulks (money) by Doing it yourself, You can also make a living out of it. For me I want to save some bulks by sewing some basic outfits myself!

Its Friday and its an Ankara type of day, am wearing this for an appointment to meet a new client, as I just started a Branding and Social media consulting firm *winks* its 2017 and its time to make success stories. I will tell you more about it in my next post. 

What skills do you have? Are you willing to learn one? What will you do with the skills you have? It is 2017, will you ditch the cold shoulder trend or will you rock on? Kindly Share your response in the comment section.
