I’m so happy it’s June, but where is the time going? We are already 6 months into 2016 WOW, God is good! Well the weather is finally making some sense, the seasons actually match up with the temperature and I couldn’t be happier. It is time to pull out your dancing shoes because it is OFFICIALLY Owambe season in the USA. The weddings have already started, the asoebi guests are prepping and the tailors/designers are BOOKED! In honor of the true beginning of summer party season (weddings, birthdays, graduations, proms etc) I put two looks together, hope you like! I’m noticing pink and purple is a recurring theme here, no worries I have way more colorful looks coming your way.

The Ankara Blouse and skirt set can be styled together or separately, You can dress it up for an event with heels like I did here, or throw on some flats or gladiator sandals for a more casual look. I’ve worn either piece separately and each piece still looks great on its own. The Blouse can be styled with skinny jeans, capris, or shorts if you are daring. While the skirt is a great look with a bold color top using an accent color found in the design print, I’d opt for yellow,white, or orange. You can even wear witty a graphic Tee shirt with the Skirt
If you are loving this look we have plenty of them available in store and on the website.

As for the Purple Lace Gown that was beautifully Designed and made by @DollySkeppings There’s no getting around this you must be prepared to dance dance dance at an owambe party. I’m not much of a sleeveless person but this dress made me believe!! The Entire design was a surprise and as usual @Dollyskeppings Executed well (watch out for more collaborations with her) This outfit would be great for a party or wedding! I can’t wait to wear it to an event! I did not pair either look with accessories or a headtie (gele) because it was just too hot that day..(Omo, I couldn’t handle it) A lovely beadset or gold/silver jewelry would be super pretty with these looks.

How would you style your hair with these looks? I curled my Straight ova-boutique luxury hair with a flat iron and no holding spray(Major NO-NO). In the summer DONT forget the holding spray or you will sweat out your curls like”someone” you know. I hope you enjoyed these looks, it must be exciting that I shared two looks in one post right? GUESS WHAT there’s much more on its way. Visit us soon at 1421 A Stuyvesant ave Union NJ 07083, Major thanks to all of you who have been super supportive. Love you LOTS
