NIGERIAN AGBADA NATIVE ATTIRE

Hey Beautiful people!
So I stole (borrowed) my twelve year old brothers Nigerian native attire so that I can finally rock the men's inspired agbada trend, several years later. Do you guys remember when it was everywhere? I even did an inspiration post on it here

But first a bit on what's been going through my mind lately, you guys know I like to talk
Boy, can life be so ugh at times. It really is a humbling pill to swallow when you have to practice what you preach in certain moments. We all know how easy it is to give advice, encourage and offer solutions when on the outside of things.

And in those moments, when prayer becomes harder, faith becomes smaller but is the only solution. But what can we do but pray, turn to God and build our faith. I've always said and I do believe that for every experience, there is something new to learn about ourselves and God.

   A statement that really struck me yesterday was " We hear God the loudest when we need him the most". The pure truth of this is just wow. Which is why life will keep pushing and turning us around because it's in those moments that we learn to trust. And that my beautiful people is when God does his thing and wows us beyond belief.

So this is not your typical agbada look, we actually call it "senator" or "native" and it's a go-to set for various events especially in men's fashion. It's actually really great to see more men embracing the typical native attire. But of course as the saying goes "What a man can do, a woman can do better", hence I styled this native attire from my brother's closet with a pair of lace-up booties, my curves (thanks to the added weight), makeup and we were good to go. 

By the way, these pictures were taken at the Abuja Arts and Crafts Centre (Read post). I definitely plan on doing shoots with more African themed prints there next time around.
