I finally have a new hairdo! I made my hair! So, bye Keke and Hello Kinky!! It took like 13 hours because I am extremely slow (explains why I never attempt making anyone’s hair) but I like the end product. I will blog about this in full details later on so watch out for the post on Protective Style: Chunky Twists.
After fixing my new hairdo on Saturday my Loughborough Big Bro (Sola) informed me he was in town with Muyiwa and Riversongz assisting with the sound/technical side of things. It happened to be his birthday two days prior, HAPPY BIRTHDAY AGAIN SOLA! It was short notice but I knew I had to head to the Redeemed Church were the Talk and Worship Session was taking place and it was nice seeing him. I do cherish you and thank God for putting you in my life because there were moments in my life I needed a word to keep me going somehow Sola helped to remind me who God made me to be. God bless you.
In my church we always celebrate the first sunday of each month with lots of praises and dances. As I have mentioned in previous posts, in Nigerian culture (consciously or unconsciously) we tend to wear our traditional attires for thanksgiving. I decided to rock what I will term the ‘Casual Contemporary African’ look. The top I wore (which has a pencil skirt but I rocked it on this occasion with jeans) was made by a dear friend of mine 2 years ago (2011) and it happens to be her birthday today! HAPPY BIRTHDAY OMOLOLA EMIRAYO OYEDELE!!
Our friendship has come a longggggg way, over 14 years and counting 🙂 I basically sketched the design for the top and she made identical attires for us with her tailor in Nigeria. I am sure by now you know one of the ways to my heart is by giving me African attires lol, all things African and arty *sighs* it probably stems from the fact my mum studied art (African art). So, she’s things like making tie and dye textiles and sculptures. I do miss her a lot and hope she gets well soon. And yes, that is my beautiful mother below rocking her Nigerian kaftan.
I will stop talking and leave you to enjoy my new hairdo and sunday Outfit Of The Day. African textile top paired with white jeans, hope you like.
