Oh how I love Saturdays. So yesterday was my friends graduation party and you already know how I feel about grad parties J. I had already made plans to go there at around midday but my mom wanted me to accompany her to a traditional wedding. See back home I had been to prolly one traditional wedding called the Cha-Wi (done by an older couple that already has kids: kind of renewing your vows in a traditional way). This one I attended on Saturday was for a newly wedded couple and it was quite interesting. I would take the time to explain to you guys but the detail is so much that I could write a book out of it so I’ll just give a brief explanation. Basically the bride’s family starts a “quarrel” with the groom’s family. They go back n forth with the groom’s family trying to console the bride’s family with gifts which range from money to expensive wine to palm wine and a whole bunch of nice words, appreciating the effort it took to raise the bride (this whole scene goes on for like 2hours, it’s quite fun to watch, like a live movie with unrehearsed lines). Then at the end the “problem/quarrel” is resolved between both families and the bride’s dad gives the newly wedded couple advice and blesses their marriage life. I did not get to my grad party till like 1am, but you know what it is, I still had fun for the remaining 3hours.lol
After partying till 4am and going to bed at 5am, waking up for church at 9am was super hard but I eventually woke up and got ready for church. Church was pretty awesome as we had a visiting pastor in my church. He encouraged us to be ready for Christ anytime and not to be fooled by the many people that have predicted dates that the rapture would occur (Harold Campign-diff story for diff day). But after church I went to two grad parties with a couple of friends. I had a lot of fun eating and doing a little bit of dancing as usual. I am totally sorry that I did not take pictures of my outfits on both days but the dress I wore to the grad parties on Sunday featured in my “FOR MY LOVE OF FASHION” entry. I’ll post an entry to show you how it looked like.
So what I wore looked like the pink dress, but it was deep blue. I matched it with a white cardigan and some orange sandals (tell me watchu know about color blocking, lol) but the combo was pretty good. Plain long dresses are def a trend this summer. Make it your own by adding a belt, over the shoulder purse and some huge hoops and u’re ready for a BLISSFUL day.
