“Two Peas in Culottes” is inspired by a post on Chris Kata’s blog.
I had planned to shoot with Ayoka Thompson when I remembered my darling friend Chris Kata had told me the night before she had landed in Lagos. It’s almost impossible for me to be in Accra and not tell Chris. From assisting with my productions, to been my guide to the best spots to eat/drink/shop/party to who is who, Chris always ensure I’m okay. I couldn’t believe we’ve been friends for many years, and the only style bloggers in our small circle but have never done a blog collaboration. It was high time. She’s my favourite Aki and I’m her favourite Pawpaw which explains why we showed up twinning by accident.
Chris is one of my favorite people in the world and most times I wonder how she copes and ignores my many antics. Then I remember it’s the mother in her (Yes Chris is a yummy mummy). You know how you meet someone, instantly connect and years after years you are still friends. Chris has given me many reasons to be thankful, hold on tight and and not one reason to doubt our friendship but given me many reasons to hold on tight.
Who wishes there’s a series follow up of the movie Aki & Pawpaw. Who’s with me?.
I’m wearing a culotte from Belois Couture while Chris is wearing a vintage culotte piece from Labanella Couture (super gorgeous right! She said it’s a hands down from generations to her. If not….).
Have a great weekend guys!
