The Bubu Dress

It has been a minute. More than a minute in fact. I have missed this place and my Mobster fans. I know its February and it’s quite irrelevant to wish you guys Happy New Year. But, 2020 is still fresh. So, Happy New Year Mobster Fans. It feels awesome to be back. 2019 had a lot of uncertainty. However, 2020 marks a new decade and I feel in my spirit that things will align for the better for everyone.

In recent months, I’ve been reflecting on the importance of TIMING. A lot of times, we want things. We want to make it, live the best life, smash some goals or at least feel like we are progressing. Often times, we end up stuck. But, I’m just here to remind you all, that you are all stars in waiting. Waiting to blossom in your area of purpose and interests. Fashion Mobster is here to help usher you into your stardom with style.

I have unique fashion looks in my look book for you all. In 2020, we are smashing our goals as we slay. In the past month, I have been brewing fashion styles in my ‘kitchen’. Are you guys ready to be served with some fashion tea?

On today’s blog post, I decided to rock a bubu dress. It’s very popular among Nigerians and the Swahili People. It resembles a Dera with an urban touch to it. This look gave me a fashion hangover because I am not over how glorious I looked. I was feeling like this modern wife that is ready to accompany my man to a garden wedding that is filled with pink roses, blue skies and white seats that will make my dress pomp and blend with the surrounding. The look is subtle, decent and elegant.

When it came to accessorizing, I did less of it because it is sequined and had a lot going on. I accessorized the Bubu dress with a watch and chandelier earrings. I love looking extra and I opted to add a headscarf which complimented the whole outfit.
