You better shape up

If Grease was set in Freetown with a Sierra Leonean cast (surely it’s time for a remake!!), I reckon this is what Sandy would wear in the final scene. Normally one for a trad Africana frock, Freetown fashion plate Makalay is already for summer loving in this racy look.
Danny Zuko (who would naturally be played by IB Love) would go nuts for the bandana, tight black high-waisted jeans and Africana top. And those shoes, imagine Makalay stubbing out a Marlboro Red  in those little numbers.

Swag at the office

When you work in the khaki-clad world of the NGO sector, it’s not always easy to find a colleague with a set of threads you admire. I hit the jackpot at the SMAC (yes that is a real acronym and it’s all about communities fighting Ebola, not with heroin, but with fortitude, courage and deep conversations) office when I found myself working in the same team as the Freetown fashion elite. It was a relief to find that what SMAC lacks in functioning office equipment, it makes up for with some serious human eye candy.IMG_6122‘Ammy A to the J’, Everton fan and all round renaissance man, is number 1 on Allah’s best dressed list in this Ramadan ensemble. Purple cotton and caramel jeans make for a killer colour combo but what pulls it all together is, you guessed it….that hat! Purchased for Le10,000 ($2).

IMG_6153‘Miss MakaLAY’ brings it on for Africana Friday in this bold three-piece, fish tailed extravaganza. A natural in front of the camera, MakaLAY is all about the boho vibe. She has a wardrobe rivalling Kim Kardashien’s, and I have to say, I’ve never seen her in the same outfit twice.
