Hello lovelies, so some of you may not know that I am a Nigerian and yesterday we celebrated the 51st anniversary of our independence (This was when Nigeria gained its independence from British colony in 1960). There were lots of events going on all over yesterday but because it was Jen's birthday, she wanted to celebrate culturally and we all donned our ankaras(Nigerian fabric) and hit the NYAB cultural ball. The rule was that all outfits must be floor length but of course we bent the rules. lol
I opted for go for a jumpsuit with my ankara since it was very bold and kept my jewelry minimal and the only color i had on was on my lips.
So as you can see, i took off my braids! I think i cried a little as i did because i loved those braids but the rain got in them and they started to stink really bad so they had to come off...I ombre colored these extensions that i have in now and i flexi rolled them to bed for this curly effect.
Don't you just love Anne's outfit? I came up with the design for her and our seamstress did her magic
