L'aviye Lookbook: Three ways I rock Kente Accessories!

Hey Guys!

So, a friend of mine started her business while I was in my final year of University. I bought some accessories from her and wore them to an Africultural Society Event in the Summer of 2013 as seen below.

The business was originally called Accessories by Abiye but now the name has been changed to L'aviye. The accessories featured in this post are from the Spring/Summer 13 collection. Check out her website and order stuff from her newer collections, the designs in the Autumn/Winter 13 and Summer/Fall 14 collection are exquisite. 

I Love that the brand has evolved and now stocks a wide range of bracelets, triangle necklaces, loop earrings, rings, triangle earrings and even strappy heeled sandals in a different prints. The design of the clutch has changed with the times and I can't wait to feature the new collection on my blog, plus her customer service is spectacular.

Isn't this Kente print so beautiful
I Love how Lad-like I look with one hand in my pocket, Oshey

I was actually waving at a guy o!

I gave him the Thumbs Up Sign too
When I plan stuff in advance, it sticks better than if I plan it impromptu. I could have worn the flower as a brooch for this look but I forgot and we were in a bit of a hurry as there was a time constraint. I had actually planned to wear the plain black beads from this post not the blush coloured ones, oh well. That's why preparation + Opportunity = Success.

Look at what Lagos Humidity does to my Afro o! Shrinkage is real.

Even guys rock L'aviye

They Rock em with Swag too
Shalla to Dami and Olamide!! 

You can find L'aviye on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or their website
They ship internationally and all the accessories are handmade with Love  :)
Plus they offer gift wrapping and customisation services too so you can have an accessory made in your favourite print, Tres cool!
