I was planning for a show, and I wanted to look different. So, I decided to wear a flowing agbada, a fez cap with nice sneakers. When I got there, all eyes were on me.
I ran out of lip gloss and I wanted to go out. I simply improvised by using my hair cream instead.
I was to attend my friend’s birthday party and the dress code was white top and mini jeans skirt. However, as I didn’t have a jeans skirt, I embarked on an emergency DIY project. I changed my bum shorts into a jeans skirt. It was crazy.
One time, I made holes on my plain jeans trousers, all in the name of following that crazy jeans trend. However, I was sent back from the school gate by the security man. The guard said I was dressed for the farm and not for a school environment.
I grew my hair to afro level, braided one side, and left the other side with no hair at all.
I wore my jeans trouser backwards, ripped all through. Then, I wore denim shorts over the jeans, with a sleeveless vest as a top outfit. The reaction is best imagined, as I wore that to class.
I fixed a white weavon. At first, I felt elated after making the hair because it seemed I was attracting so much attention. People who walked past me turned to take second looks. However, honestly, I later felt embarrassed because at some point, the attention became too much.
Nowadays, it is not unusual to see ladies wear short dresses with sneakers. So, I took mine a step further. I wore sneakers on a gown made with Ankara.
