It’s a Red and Black Affair!

Seun-0055_pp-MIXWelcome back to On-Point's blog.  Here's wishing you a fulfilling and prosperous 2015.  It is indeed our year of overflowing grace.  All we that's required of us is "faith" and "works" and the results will definitely follow. 

On behalf of the On-Point team, I would love to thank everyone who was part of our story in 2014. I am looking forward to even a bigger and greater 2015 with you all by the God's grace. 

As you know, On-Point is a full service Event Planning Company specializing in planning African/Nigerian Weddings and Special Occasion in the tri-state area (and we are available for travel).  We have in-house Florists, Designers, and Makeup Artist who can assist in making your day truly special.  In addition, we've partnered with the outstanding service providers and vendors in town to bring you the best that you truly deserve on your special day. 

For my first post of the year, I decided to go for a red and black affair...

When choosing color combination, there are several factors you need to consider.  Some these factors include, but not limited to event type, complexion, time of the year etc.  In regards to #makeup, my philosophy is that less is more.  At On-Point, our goal is not to make you look like someone else on your special day, rather we work to enhance your natural features and God-given beauty.  

Would you think of rocking a red and black outfit/makeup look for your wedding reception or simply for your special occasion?  Before you say "Yay" or "Nay", sit back and let's explore the color-c0mbo together.

1. Headwrap



The gele featured in the picture is fondly called "onjawu".  Onjawu can be easily recognized by thread lined across the outer parts with precision holes spaced at pre-determined intervals.  These are usually hand-woven and comes in different colors of your choice. You can also add more "life" to your gele by adding extra blings (like the red one used here) however, you have to be extra careful not to make your gele appear too "busy".  If you need help with choosing your outfit or would simply like to schedule a consultation session with On-Point, kindly call (610) 931-3350.  For your orders, please allow at least 4 - 6 weeks for delivery.

*We can also supply complete bridal aso-oke set (for bride and groom) upon request.*


2. Red and Black Beaded Jewelry

This beaded jewelry is custom-made by On-Point and it's called the inter-locking beads.  These designer beaded jewelry were crafted with care to ensure that you get high value in return for your investment.  Typically, I have a preference for classy beads and I think everyone should. If you'd like to place an order for these beads or any other design of your choice, kindly contact us.


3. Red Guipure Lace

The African fabric market has exploded at an alarming rate in the last two years - all thanks to the world fast-becoming a global village.  With this added advantage of accessibility also comes the risk of purchasing inferior quality fabric.  If quality fabric recognition is not your niche, On-Point can help you source for the best quality fabric directly from the factory.  We work with fabric vendors home and abroad all with the aim of helping you make your special day a truly special one.


4. Black shoes with "heart" accent and sizzling heels


Don't you just love my shoes? I thought these were pretty and would match perfectly with my outfit and sure it did!.  My feet are big & wide and it typically takes a long time for me to find shoes that pleases me.  I'm glad I found these..

With my simple yet elegant #makeup and outfit, you really don't have to wonder why this "look" got picked for my first blog post of the year.

Thank you for visiting.  My goal was to inspire and help you make an informed choice.  I hope I was able to do just that.
