Raiding the Closet.

This morning, I raided my parents' closet. Both had packed away old clothes so I took the liberty to claim them as my own. Finding my mother's old clothes was a miracle since that woman has a habit of getting rid of everything she doesn't use. My father on the other had, still had clothes from the 70's.

 My mother's pants and blouse

 My mother's skirt and blouse.

 Her dress

My mother's blouse, my father's old coat and tuxedo pants (he used to be super skinny)

I took these pictures against our dining room wall. It's old and stained with all the grimy handprints my brother, sister and I left as children. The lower part of the wall has the paint chipping away. I can't remember that wall ever being spotless and I wouldn't have it any other way. Anyway, back to the clothes. With the ones I picked out from my dad's pile, I'm doing to get them altered to fit me. It's hard to come across the type of material used anymore. That's pretty much all the posting I can do for now, untill next time!

I’m currently back home in Nigeria for a few weeks and so far, I’ve been having a remarkable time. That’s saying a lot because where I stay, the only fun thing to do is go to a friend’s house and watch movies. I’m spending the rest of my stay sleeping on the couch because I’ve had enough experiences with geckos and roaches falling on me. But I’m happy to be home after 7 years so I’m doing my best to overlook the bad and just enjoy everything. All that aside, I hope you guys bear with me and my random postings.
