So I've had a wedding every Saturday this month so far, more to come before the end of 2012, I'm exhausted just at the thought of it. If these were not all close, personal friends I'd be hibernating at home, phones off so I don't have to spend the day getting dressed and battling bridal traffic.
So my friend Deke got hitched this past Saturday. Anohter oooold friend I've known for almost 2 decades. We met at Vivian Fowler, transferred at the same time to New Jack City aka Queen's College and met up again in Law School so I definitely couldn't miss this one.
I arrived a bit late though because Lekki Expressway is the 7th circle of hell and I missed being able to get a photo of her in her wedding dress but I caught up with her when she changed into her 2nd dress. This was the first time I'd seen a bride wear a coloured reception dress. They usually all stick to white, cream, gold or silver but Deke did purple and it was glorious.
My humble self went for tried and tested in Virgos Lounge.
I am very conflicted with the photo below. It was the only picture I had that showed the slit in the dress, but I wasn't very comfortable with the way I looked in it. Sort of what Daisy-Mak would call a "douchebag photo", taking oneself waayyyy too serious.
I really need to fashion blogger up and take pictures where I'm mean mugging like Rumi Neely or looking dreamingly into the distance or accidentally on purpose rifling through my conveniently placed designer bag...or just happening to check the time on my huge man watch....
You know...what serious "bloggers" do.
But maaann, no time...no time at all.
Please, cast your eyes on this baby oku......
Ahh here's a photo of the couple. Nothing quite like a good looking couple, there don't seem to be a lot of those these days, but these two will definitely contribute equally to a future beautiful baby's gene pool.
No fear of an unfortunate looking spouse mudding these conception waters.
As usual, with every event in Lagos, babes were out to do damage. I looooove the fashion in Lagos, I love that people are always dressed up and take care with their appearance and always look banging. Nothing wrong with being ambivalent to fashion but secretly, I'd love you a little bit more if you gave me life on a daily.
Until next Saturday gorgeous people, I'll be reporting live from my QC bff, Bukky B's wedding.
Love and light xx
