Extravagant Africa Fashion

I missed African Fashion Week 2016! This extravaganza was held from Thursday, August 18 to Sunday, August 21 in Toronto.  It was one of the events at the top of my list, but due to unfortunate circumstances, I wasn't able to attend this year.  Therefore I had to post photos of beautiful African fashion this week to give me just a little taste of what I've missed.

Anyway, my daughter and I found out about Akoma Multicultural Food and Dance Festival being held Saturday at Chinguacousy Park in Brampton (in Ontario).    While walking around the park, we ran into a young lady.  I admired her skirt from a distance, and as we walked closer, we saw the banner "Miss Ghanian Canadian".  I asked if she won the contest.  The young lady told us the pageant is being held at the City Playhouse Theatre in Vaughan (Ontario).  If any of you are interested in attending, the pagaent will be held September 9, 2016, starting at 6:30 pm.

Trendy Olympic Uniforms 2016

I'm just enjoying the Rio Olympics, aren't you? Unfortunately, I didn't see the complete opening ceremony (saw over half).  I fell asleep, but not because I was bored.  I'll be drinking coffee during the closing ceremony to make sure I'm awake for the entire program.

We're now into the second week which includes one of my top favorite sports to watch, track and field.  So I'll be riveted to the tv for these next few days.

I think many of the uniforms worn during the opening ceremony (the ones I saw, and the ones I found online) for the Olympics were just on the mark.  Colors  and silhouettes were fun and somewhat experimental, if that can be said, for the start of a world competition.  

Shout out to the Canadian medal winners! And to the other medal winners from a few other countries I was also rooting for!  Here are just a few of the winning uniforms. Wish I could post all my favorites.




Czech Republic,


Till next time and blog!
