New Hair Style & Outfit (MADE BY MY HAND) For Choca!! :)

Pin It
Hey all,

So, on Saturday, I decided to TAKE THE BULL BY THE HORNS and be EXTREMELY productive!! -- I gave Choca a great hairstyle using:

-- Water
-- Olive Miracles Growth Lotion
-- Proclaim Emerald Bergamot Hair & Scalp Conditioner
--Eco Styler Gel

I call this hairstyle the: Nubian Styled Cassie Inspired Look. On the right side, I cornrowed it back into 8 braids, and the middle of her head and the left I twisted it into small twists.  It took me about an hour to do it, but it's going to last 2 weeks and IT IS GORGEOUS!!!

THE STYLE:




But, before that, I decided to put my fingers to my sewing machine and make an outfit for Choca to wear to church on Sunday... Why?? Well, it's simple... Because I wanted to!! HAHA!! I have known how to sew since I was young... But, I CANNOT sew my patterns.  I make what my MIND envisions... So, I decided to re-purpose an old dress of Caramel Cuties and an old jacket that Choca wore when she was younger...

THE REPURPOSED ITEMS:

Yes... My watermark is a bit...OFF... But, hey... gotta protect the lovelies, right??? Wrong or not!!! LMBO! :~D
Sooooo.. What's the finished product look like, you ask??? Well, I will show you:

A beautiful Maxi Dress (the straps were made out of the band from one of my old jean jackets... AND... A Bolero Jacket!! :) How cute, right???

Now, I KNOW you wanna see them on Choca, right?!?!? Well... You're about to!! Also, the flowers she has in her hair are handmade by me as well!! :) -- It's taking longer than usual to get my collection going... But, when GOD feels me ready, it'll come together, so I won't and don't complain!! :)

THE PICTURES:

Cheesin' really pretty!
