Okay! It did arrive at last, and when I opened the package I was knotted in my stomach because it looked so beautiful. I needed a white grand boubou for my coming graduation to honor my own ancestors when I wear my academic robes. I am not at all disappointed in what I received, and it came on the same day as the 'Eid-ul-Adha, which for Muslims is the highest holy day of the year.
The brocade design is elegant, the craftsmanship is detailed, the fabric is a light and easy-maintenance cotton. Every part – bubu, sokoto, and agbada, and of course the kufi, were perfect in every way; I was able to wear right out from the packages, if not for the fold creases from shipment.
But that's not all. When you are purchasing online for items of clothing, you can't see really what it is that you'll receive. You can't tell the quality; you can't tell the weight; you don't know if the sizing is quite correct. Therefore I had a correspondence of several emails with the customer service of Dupsies; the responses were always professional but very accommodating, too. That helped my anxieties.
If you are thinking about some kind of Motherland attire – whether for the special occasion or just for casual times – you need not have concerns, not in my experience. If your experience is as good as mine has been, you will be very pleased indeed.
