Ok so on Tuesday, the sun as you all know came out to say hello. This kinda reminded me of Nigerian heat and made me get all 'roots-y'. OK so I didn't walk around with an afro pick embedded in my weave BUT I did wear my mother's 'buba'.
Now for all you who don't know what a buba is, it is a bloody large top in african fabric worn with a wrap around skirt [in the same fabric]. Evidently, I wasn't going to go out quite like that sooooo I brought out my scissors and buttons and got to embellishing. The result was a cropped, african print top with pearl and gold buttons on the sleeve. Coupled with my long black skirt and it's thigh high slit, I really felt like a bit of an african queen [hence the post title]
As I mentioned on my twitter, the thing about dressing like an african queen is that you get men looking at you like you are a mango that they would like to take a bite of.
That ladies, is the price of looking super fly....or super african, you take your pic [i'd say the former tbh]
|im not even sure what this expression means tbh..|
|not sure why i was so happy either??|
