Sunday's Best: Last Trad Sunday II

Friday, April 29, 2016
As promised more pictures from the last Sunday. 
Had problems with my computer when I first started working on the post, it eventually crashed😭. But gatts post no matter what.
The pictures are from a different eye, a different perspective and lens from the first.
Though the essence is to tell the same story, different words and directions were used to achieve it.
It's a story of survival, togetherness, success, beauty and celebration among other things.
I just loved the way the colors popped in a number of pictures ( Sipo comman teach me abeg 😩😩)
The pictures in this post were taken by Sipo for STJPHOTOGRAPHY, check out more of his amazing work on his Instagram page @STJPHOTOGRAPHY_ . Enjoy!

Sunday's Best: Last Trad Sunday

Thursday, April 28, 2016
This was one of the few processions for a number of individuals, one of the many things they'll be doing one last time. As a cause for celebration, so tailors and seamstresses were pushed to the limit to bring the imagination of several to life. 
The outcome could be described as "hotter" than the current weather that we all dread.  I don't think an exhibition is enough to describe sights that were on display. But i'll let you be the judge of that.
Even as a lot is probably on your plate at the moment, this is a season to promote camaraderie as certain individuals we see now we may never see again and only our fond memories and pictures of the time spent together can give us a sense of closure. 
Finally, I hope you enjoy the post. There another post to come by the way.

Hi Everyone! How's it going?
On Sunday I planned on doing a Sunday's Best post in my church, but I left my camera in the car and by the time I got It almost everyone had already left.
But on the upside I met someone whose outfit I really loved and decided to make a post off her outfit instead.

The ordinary and art tradition emphasizes the ability to promote or create (if not already existent) the culture that is strangely unique yet undeniably varied to everyone involved. Which brings us to a point of definition. Who is the ORDINARY person? What is the art behind the ordinary person? And why are we talking about him?

In Focus: Ultra Casual Native Vibes

Saturday, April 9, 2016
Hello everyone, Happy Weekend!
Seeing as it the weekend you know how it's official Nigerian tradition (like turning on the generator by 7:00 pm and Putting stew/soup in Ice Cream Containers intentionally to raise people's hopes then nefariously dash it entirely 😒) to wear native during the weekends.
If you've met me or know me to an extent you'll know I'm really simple, laid back and I like to be very comfortable. I guess that's pretty evident  this post, also in a previous post here I mentioned how I'm looking to add new pieces to my wardrobe and what not (Father stretch my bank account 😭). 
So I've been on the look out for pieces I would add and created an outfit off of it.
This particular outfit contains:
A Tee Shirt by Roc and Religion 
(their prints are awesome and very artistic, 
you should check them out on Instagram: @rocandreligion)
Ankara Print Pants.
A Matte Ring & Bracelet.
Glasses.
Double Strap Sandals.

I realized after picking out the pieces that the outfit is pretty androgynous; it can easily be pulled off by a female. So I added a pair of cat eyed glasses and began to imagine a particular person who would pull it off perfectly. 
So yeah that's it, what do you think?
