DC Africa Festival...

The 3rd Annual DC Africa Festival was held today.  This event is getting bigger and better every year, and I have loved watching it grow into what it has become; an event for Africans of all nationalities and for African-Americans to come together through what really bonds us, the motherland.  Food, jewelry, wax fabric, and everything Africa, made this perhaps one of the best festivals I have attended this year.

Surprise, it had this little detail on the back

Because she forced me to take her pic in this dress so that she could determine if she liked it...

She loved this. She bought both...

Top, turban, and makeup were killer!

I love a man in sandals

I purchased every bowl he had.

African print sleeves

This couple both matched their Kente. He had a strip down the front and back of his jacket, she had a hair bow. Cute.

Tameelah getting waistbeads... Finally.

My son, Nile, who wants me to tell everyone that he took these pictures. Who cares?

Just 6 Black boys right?

Then they did this!

And this!

Who doesn't need a semi-train on their dress at all times? The drama of it all...

Isn't his smile nice?

Isn't his Africa pin, nicer?

If you ain't sweating, you ain't doing it right....


The grass in always greener; she wants my hair/head, I want hers.... 
My niecey poo...Or "My Shadow" as I have started to refer to her.  Quite annoyingly, I might add.

Skirt (actually a dress): Asos Curve, Top: Asos Curve, Moto Vest: Forever 21
SideNote: I usually don't buy things from Forever 21 because, well, I don't want to be 21 forever.  But this moto vest is cute. Not the best quality, but for something so trendy, but super versatile and seasonless, I tried my hand.  I better like it because they have no return policy.  The pitfalls of fast fashion stores.

Tameelah's new handbag.  From Dooney and Bourke.  Who knew that they made this superb bag with the softest leather that creates the best doctor bag I have seen in a while.  AND, the lining is red and green. Heaven!
