Style Lookbook|| How I Styled Buba As A Corporate Fit
My Iro and Buba Look

I have followed quite a number of style and fashion blogs and I have been learning and stealing style ideas from them. You must have seen how I stole Salmah’s layer look and restyled here.

I was trying to rearrange my closet some days ago when I made a good discovery. My old Iro and buba I used to own when I was a perfect size 10 ? It has been a while I wore it, then I remembered this church dedication service I needed to attend and it just came in handy, so I kept it aside for this reason.

Styling Iro as a Top

    This was taken about 17 months ago

I thought I could use this ‘two-piece’ for something else and I kept trying to figure it out. The ‘buba’ (top) idea came first and I thought I could wear it as a blouse with a skirt or a jean or even a pant. I intended to style it with these ideas and see which will work out best, but procrastination will not let me do that.

Buba Style As a Top

Buba Style

Ah, who would have thought it’s the same top in the previous picture…?

At first I thought it was awkward but who cares? All you have to do it grace it with style! So I gotta start digging out my old bubas and I think I’m going to raid my mother’s wardrobe too whenever I visit her…evil grin.

And my black pump shoes came to the rescue. It was a perfect fit for the peplum skirt I am still not sure why I do not like, lols. I was really late for church already but the blogging spirit will not let me step out without a picture, hence the white color bag that was just sitting right in my face and a quick reach. When I looked through the pictures again, I felt it was not a bad choice after all.

What do you think darlings? Is it a yes or no? Hit or smash? Would you rock this or not?

If you get to style this, kindly tag me.
