Yesterday my DH's friend called from the states to say she is getting married and wanted me to be an ashebi (is that how it's spelt?).Thing is i don't even know who she is and i honestly always thought ashebi was for single ladies so they can dance and dance and possibly be taken.
It's not the case in Lagos anyway so i have since started trying to change my mentality. I miss the east and life as a Londoner man! Lagos is just one........of a place,no offence but most people don't know and have never heard of the simple life here. (OK I'll leave that topic for next time.)
DH respects this friend and has told me so much about her,how she's a doctor, how she did this and did that. Am sure he'll be gutted if i try to discourage him from attending. Truth is she is his elder brother's ex girlfriend. I live in a modern world but sincerely don't think it'd be nice to go for her wedding, and she's here talking about ashebi!!!! I mean this elder brother isn't married yet. I don't know, just asking because i have heard from lots of people that the way i think sometimes is back ward!
Anyway i have serious styles in mind, for the 2 different types of reigning fabrics since i am suspecting it could be either of the two (Ankara - I'll make a lovely sleeveless 3 quarter length.................... and 2. some show through french lace dunno what it's called - the see through material would make flared sleeves and I'll have taffeta..............) No am not giving away my styles, seeing that DH is buying and paying i will gladly accept the material.
What would you do? encourage DH to buy the material and both of u go for the wedding. Or buy the material and end up not going or what? Just curious. And the wedding is next month in Benin!
