So, on Friday I walked down the aisle!

……only that several other people walked in after me, and finally the bride walked in and said I DO!

It was my friend’s wedding; dang!

You see, I am a typical girl who dreams of a dream wedding; I have the song I will walk down to in my mind, I know how my gown will look like, I know you will all listen to country music the whole afternoon session and you better come prepared to dance, and I mean a lot! I am just waiting for the day..and the groom; we can call that waiting upon the Lord, right? Ha ha ha

Marriage is a beautiful thing and my friend’s wedding was simple and awesome. The theme was African and I got the pleasure of owning my second African print dress. (I am not into African prints or anything contemporary).

The design I chose complimented my body shape and was simple and elegant, my style. At least I will get to wear it many more times, starting from this coming Easter holiday as I go to visit my grandma (she will definitely be proud of me, dressed in a ‘womanly’ dress covered from head to toe).

The last time I went to visit her, of course still in a dress (anything else –namely trousers- gets her very vexed), she asked me to turn around to see if I had been feeding well ( Really?..) and she gave me a thumbs up. I might need to overfeed and gain some weight seeing that I have shed some kgs recently.

Here are some of the pictures of the dress:

Earth-colored Tribal print

Ever looked at a color and saw mud? Like the mud we used to play with to mould stuff back in the days? Way back? It’s the feeling I get from the color of the skirt below. Color of the earth, real African representation. Donning the skirt gives me a sense of belonging: African.

The print on the skirt is called tribal and to match it up I did a plain black long sleeved turtle neck top. It looks better tucked in to give the skirt some length; mid length. Folding up the sleeves makes it not look so plain.

A black shoe is good enough as long as not a ‘boring’ one.

The jewelry is more ‘vocal’ seeing that the black top is ‘silent’. The brown beads on the necklace and the loops on the earrings bring out the African theme more and picks the brown from the skirt so well.

golden bracelet may add a bit of glamour and will still stick to the theme. The brown bag which happens to be my favorite in my closet compliments everything in the outfit.

It’s the perfect office wear.
