FBY 101: How to tie the classic Lily twist


Hey girls!

I hope everyone is having a great week! Today, I am officially introducing a new blog series called ‘FBY 101’. This blog series is one where I will be giving different tutorials on different things, not just fashion. It will fulfil my promise of passing every bit of knowledge I have to my readers, so the tutorial will range from how to wear certain trends, how to to switch up a look, homemade face packs, cocktails, drinks and maybe food. I am really excited as to what this new blog series will do for my readers and how well you all respond to it. I hope that you will all enjoy it and learn a thing or two from my tutorials.

First up on FBY 101 is a tutorial on how to tie the classic infamous Lily twist with the African Iro and buba. I have made available pictures and also words to describe the entire process. I tried to make it as easy as possible by capturing each and every one of my movements. I hope you all enjoy this post and I would love some feedback on how you did. So, let’s get started!


Step one: Hold both sides of the wrapper and make sure they are of equal length.


Step two: Take those two ends and twist them in a 360 degree motion.


Step three: Take those two ends to the back and tie in a knot.DSC_0216DSC_0217 DSC_0219

Step four: After tying them, chances are there will be excess fabric. Neatly tuck them inside the wrapper.


Step five: Make the necessary adjustments if there are any.DSC_0232

And there you have it! A simple lily twist!

If there are any questions on this tutorial, please feel free to send me a mail at omoyeleog93@gmail.com. Now here are full pictures of my look. Pardon my lack of smiles, lol…I wasn’t in a good mood that day but a girl has got to work, right? My outfit deets are below…Enjoy!

Hey fabs!

First off, I must say I think it is such a great idea that Nigerian fashion brands have started embracing the ‘diffusion line’ idea such as Virgos Lounge with V Label and Rebahia with Wild Magnolia. Joining the band wagon with their diffusion line which is named J label, is the power fashion house Jewel by Lisa.

The diffusion line recently launched their collection online which will be available at Fashpa.com. They also released a lookbook/campaign featuring PR girl Tania Omotayo who oozes nothing but fun, fun and more fun. Party with Tania as she shows off key pieces from the diffusion line JLabel, which features an amazing selection of easy to wear separates in JBL’s signature modern prints, bright colours and easy silhouettes.

Fashpa.com’s Style Team says “We are huge fans of the J Label and we are excited to have it online at Fashpa.com.  It is the perfect everyday wardrobe for today’s cool girl at an accessible price. Affordable Luxury at it’s best!”

The party inspired campaign is fun, playful, flirty, minimalist and yet so high fashion. Get caught up in the glitter and grab a hula hoop as Fashpa.com shows you the different ways to wear your prints this season. Join the cool set.
