Hey Beautiful people, how was your democracy day holiday? I spent mine at work but branched at the market during my break and got tons of fabric which I can't wait to give to my new tailor.
Now it's no secret that the Nigerian economy is not very favorable, especially to the average citizen who wants to look fashionable. If you refer to my post on tips on how to be fashionable on a tight budget, then you would note that I mentioned tailored clothing as an option.
Now while I prefer ready-made clothes or vintage, tailored clothing is more budget friendly, especially with the dollar Naira rate. So the solution as my mom would say is to get good fabrics and designs. My new found tailor CeCe nailed it for just 4k for everything!
Initially I was not going to style my co-ord set together as I'm not a big fan of bold prints. Though after several compliments I decided to give it a try and I must say I love the outcome. See the power of words.
When styling my culottes and peplum set, I decided to go for basic heels due to the bright print and my cat-eye frames to spice things up. I love the pajama feel of the fabric as well.
Co-ord: Tailored || Heels: Zara || Frames: Street Buy
How would you style this differently? And how do you stay fashionable on a budget?
