Who is Pink?

When I complimented Hannah on her resemblance to inexplicably popular singer ‘Pink’, she responded with the question “Who is Pink?”.

Hannah_low_resApart from the obvious reply “A singer with pink hair”, it’ a hard question to answer that possibly deserves an episode of “Who do you think you are?”. In the meantime let’s take a perve at Freetown’s version of that  pop/rock sensation whose songs we probably cannot name. Hannah’s outfit is relaxed and paired back, a skinny jean and a directional print top with a simple sandal. She saves all the effort for that incredible hair.

According to the Pink doppel, achieving this edgy 90’s rocker chick look involves the purchase of a basic blonde wig then a clever and cost efficient home dye job plus some cleaning up with the scissors. “People always notice my hair, it is my identity and it makes me feel happy when people look and say you have beautiful hair”.

Ali baba gold and bold

There are several elements to Fatimata’s outfit that got me excited:
1.That flashy gold hue
2.A matchy pant suit being worn by a woman is a rare site in Freetown and possibly the first I have featured on the site.
3.An elegant nod to Alibaba is difficult to ignore

Fatimata_gold_lowresFati claims she just threw this on and really didn’t put much thought into her outfit before leaving the house, “I’m just going to the market, that’s all. I feel so comfortable in these clothes”.
