Pass me my diss ting! ACF: Men

African Christian Fellowship Conference has rolled around and passed again, this time it just for the Young Adults. So, we had a great time. 🙂 Without the parents singing off key we lots of wonderful and spontaneous praise and worship session and I loved it! Made some great friends along the way too. Lastly, because the ACF conference was just for us we did not really wear african attire and gele.

There was a couple of guys that were really well dressed and it turns out they are brothers! (This one would avoid my camera)

Yeeeeesss for the Naija attire! Looks like he’s going to wedding.

The Brother

Sam!!! So you mad? Do you want to dance?

Awwwww

Why so serious? Cat got your tongue or someone else 🙂

He looks really mean but clean nevertheless.

If you do not see your picture on here and you know I took it then one of 3 things happened:

1- your picture was taking to long to load and its not that serious so i skipped it

2- you asked me to take your picture <———- I am not a fan of

3- i did not like your outfit which is probably why you had to do number 2

That is all.

Style SpotLight: Julia Sarr-Jamois

I was creating an inspiration board for a friends line, Ja Lynette. Watch out for it! So I bought lots of magazines including the one Vogues Special Fashion Issue and I saw her. I don’t know how I never came across her before but secretly I am having a girl crush lol. Her name is Julia Sarr-Jamois which you already know because of the title.

Neon love

Random info: Prada, I watched from Prada to Nada today. I can not wait till I am fashion editor at someones magazine, she looks so important here.

I do not like these shoes. Thats all

I love this hair, it is so epic.

The shoes, well i am not a fan of metallic under any circumstance except being an alien, a magnet, or some form of currency.

Yes, This is Julia I love her (except her shoe game) and her hair (its big enough to be its own entity. ALthough when my hair is that big I will definitely straighten it.

Gallery of Poems

This is the first collection from Vlisco since the dutch company was bought by international private equity group, Actis. In the business of fashion, boardroom decisions can have an effect on the creative side. For Vlisco, this shift in ownership seems very positive. The new collection is dramatic and romantic. We especially love the majestic backdrop of these ad campaign images as well as the styling and the models ‘royal’ gait.

Once upon a time, Vlisco created a mysterious new fabric collection called ‘Gallery of Poems’. Dreams wander, floating into your own fairyland. Step into a new world and view the designs as objects of inspiration. Some designs will magically transform into a piece of art, adding a romantic touch to the poetic drama, while others illustrate a surrealistic passing of time. The decorative collection is intensified by a flamboyant colour palette. ‘Gallery of Poems’ makes you feel like a fairytale beauty.

Au Natural!!!!!!!!!

I have been natural since January 5 of this year and I have not done the chop yet but for those whose natural hair is long enough I think this Bantu knot looks really cool. I cant wait till all my hair is all natural. Yesterday I had to get most of my hair chopped off because I forgot to detangle my hair after I took out my braids and so my hair matted. I quickly went to Derek J’s hair salon (Willi does my hair! and He’s worth ever dime)  to fix the problem and Fatu wash and got as many knots out as she could and Willi chopped and straightened it. Since i was looking to get my big chop soon I really didnt care for all the hair i lost. I think I only have an inch of  permed hair in front and 2 inches of permed hair left in back.

IF YOU HAVE ANY TIPS FOR TRANSITIONERS LET ME KNOW! OR ANY HAIR PRODUCTS THAT YOU USE AND WORKS FOR YOU CUZ I NEED TO GO AND GET SOME moisturizers conditioner all that jazz and I dont know where to start but shea butter lol

This her method of twisting for your convenience so you do not have to go find it!

– Making the world more beautiful one post at a time!

Reflet de Lumiere August 2010

More from Vlisco……………………………………………………………

 

This collection from Vlisco came out in August of last year but everyone that I know must see all they have to offer one collection at a time. This photography of this collection elucidates the silhouettes and movement with a colourful blurring effect. The designs create a surreal sense of structural forms, an illusion of architectural dimensions. This sensation is enhanced by the visual effect of morphing created by the interaction between shadows and the aura of coloured lights, merging to produce a graphical collection of unique fabrics.
