'Cause we like to party...'

One thing Nigerians love to do is throw a party! And after only 3 days on Nigerian soil, I have been to two parties - my cousin's wedding and my great uncle's birthday...both on the same day!

It meant I got to see uncles, aunties and cousins from both sides of my family, many of whom I hadn't seen for several years. It was a great day but I think I might have eaten a bit too much...all adding to the Christmas weight!

For some reason, which is still unclear to me, I chose not to bring any Nigerian traditional wear so when it came to finding an outfit for the wedding, I struggled. My luggage seemed to be filled with inappropriate mini dresses or skirts. Luckily I brought along this new look dress. I swagged the clutch bag for £1.50 at my new favourite charity shop in's in the most random location but its filled with great vintage finds!

I didn't take my camera along with me, as it couldn't fit in my bag so all these photos were taken with my iPhone.

  1. You look beautiful! Love the photos! Xx

  2. Don't you just hate that about large intrusive cameras lol? There have been many times where I've had to succumb to the iPhone camera as well, but your photos still managed to look great so win win! I love the eyecatching pattern of this dress, so festive but uniquely so because it's not the typical red, white, and/or green holiday combo :)


  3. Nigeria is like party and wedding capital! i wonder how many weddings people attend in Month.lool

    lovey dress but i LOVE the heels

  4. You look beautiful Fikki! Making me miss my family in Nigeria!
