Recently I was invited to my primary school friend’s wedding….I was blown away. I’m yet to see a wedding that was well planned with so much attention to detail.
I’m one person who like smaller details when taking pictures so I was just impressed. This was a traditional wedding in the rural village called Byldrift in Limpopo. Their wedding attires were just too gorgeous from the bride to her bridesmaids.
Love is such a beautiful thing it really sees no colour only us humans see colour. Happiness was just roaming around on this day, the bride was just enjoying her day dancing her soul away , the hub was just admiring as smitten as a mother who just gave birth.
Can I just talk about the bride’s dress…..I take my hats off to her designer. Truth be told she looked amazing and that dress was just made for her body showing all assets in the right places. She wore happiness like an armour. I don’t like talking about men’s attires at weddings because I feel they are just easy.
If there’s one thing I love is a bride who puts effort in how her bridesmaids looks because they contribute to your day as well. In this case the bride went all out guns blazing on her ladies. From the hair, shoes, outfit and make up my God I can go on and on!
The decor was just as beautiful, fresh flowers bit of pearls on the table……what’s there not to love.
A City boy and a girl from the rural dusty village of Byldrift……..well what a PERFECT BLEND!
I’m going to be brutally honest here. I’m so happy I finally found the champagne that doesn’t taste like beer. My first experience with champagne was the famous or hyped up Moët.
I could not get myself to the second glass let alone finish it but I had to just hold on to it because honestly speaking I just loved the thought of champagne in my hand at the wedding I was at.
Now recently as I was planning for my daughter’s birthday play date I asked for recommendations and my friends suggested Krone and let me tell you I’m now sorted for every party or event I know what to bring. It is so nice and yummy , not exactly the perfect way to describe it but that’s how it tasted.
It’s quiet unfortunate that I don’t have perfect pictures because the venue of the play date was so dark even editing looks bad. I’ll just share one or two.
I now have an option of drinks… wine, vodka or champagne . Ok and cider but I’m really trying to stop ciders altogether because I can only do one brand and I can’t share with anyone because none of my friends drink my choice. Now wine and champagne we can share a bottle and enjoy one drink which makes the taster even more better.
I’m planning a picnic it excites me knowing I have a great bubbly to pair with my cheese board. The picnic is another blog for another day.
Here’s another great find out of my Mama’s closet (check previous post if you’re not up to date), although I think this must be my fathers. It looks like a sleeveless waist coat I mean the one worn by men back in the days. It’s actually bit oversized on me but doesn’t bother me at all.
When it comes to knits oversized is always a must .
The dress I’m wearing here is sleeveless. I wore my sleeveless white shirt and green crop top then came the dress on top. A very great combo if you ask me. I’ve learnt that fashion is what you buy and style is what you create. I always play around with my clothes to fit my style
My style is very unpredictable. I make fusions of different pieces of clothing and blend them well. Just the other day I was rocking a boy look and I felt that I nailed it but I must say my boyfriend was not too excited over that look lol.
Be on the look out for my next fashion blog.
Here’s the thing I love about going home, having to go through those old trunks full of old clothes that your mama just doesn’t wanna throw away even though she hasn’t worn them since the liberation of our country!
I must admit that I had to return a poncho that I had also taken. It was so beautiful so crisp white and wool woven. The quality of it was just above my expectations considering it was old and has been worn for years. It turns out that poncho was mom’s favorite item because she wore it in her wedding day, in our culture women wear that over their traditional wedding attire (well back in the days in any case). Such a pity I don’t have a picture to show you guys.
So this top picture I’m wearing her double breasted check blazer. I incorporated it with my white paint sprayed boyfriend jean, a white shirt and my lace crop top that I bought last year but for the life of me it always made me feel uncomfortable. I could not step out of the house with it. When it comes to clothes comfort is key(. Except for high heels) I’ve learnt the hard way .
The box braids are just adding that extra notch to my look although it’s been long since they’ve been on my head I’m ready to take them out. I’m hoping for a really mean popping Afro, hold thumbs with me!
I must give credit though to the person behind my pictures….my daughter Kganya (it means light). She’s the one who takes my pictures and I’m proud of her. She’s learning faster than I imagined.
Thank you for stopping by hope you enjoyed reading my post today. Look out for more posts about the vintage clothes I found in my Mama’s closet.
Today I’m sharing my most personal details of how IDA took away my body weight amongst other things. Growing up I was never skinny I’ve always been petite and at one stage I was fat/chubby. But then I just maintained my weight to the petite size although I started going back and forth to skinny and petite. Continue reading “Dealing with Iron deficiency anemia “
When I grew up I used to enjoy home cooked food and I find myself missing more and more of it in the city. You do get lot of places offering such dishes but presented in the most modernized way sometimes it’s off putting. Continue reading “Fancy African food?”
I thought I should share my fears of this blogging life.
This is my first blog post and I have nothing to write about and have lot of fears going through my mind. But I just thought urgh I’m just gonna start typing and Continue reading “Walking through fears “
