Day 18: Fashion Questions…

#Week4 #Culture #Fashion #Fashion_Questions

Welcome to Week 4 in the WinterABC 2021 challenge and this week we are talking Culture and Fashion 

Today is day 4 of week 4 and am well pleased to share with you a few questions for which I am searching answers.
I have lived with these questions and I have not yet gotten clear answers. I hope I can get answers from you my people..
THANKS in advance and below are the questions;

I remember being told that I had reduced my chances of getting married by 30% since I had locked my hair yet some men do not like marrying women with dreadlocks 🤔. The reason the person stated was that people with dreadlocks are considered to be big headed and with ill manners or are rebellious…
I hope one day I can get to know why dreadlocks are associated with evil like being rebellious or spoiled. I am none of the above opinions and I wear locks because they are a simple hairstyle to manage.

I am a lover of accessories and the only metals I love putting onto my body are rings and anklets. But each time some of my Christian brothers and sisters find me , they are quick to look at me with bad faces and start telling me how I am chasing away men with my rings.. What happened to asking if I am married or not…?🤔🤔🤔Someone out there , please give me an answer as to why wearing anklets is evil👏

I love dark shades of color and therefore would not mind a dark red/purple gown.
But society (at least here in Uganda) views that as not being a good bride. Where is it written or is there a code of ethics somewhere that a bridal gown has to be white and long…? If you know of any please point me to one

Thank you my audience for you visit to this site. I welcome you to share with me answers to the above questions in the comments section if you have. You may also share your personal questions if you have, someone could answer us.

Also remember to check out the Afrobloggers website and follow them on Twitter for all things creative.

I love you

  1. Girl,wear your purple dress. We took on a tradition we have no understanding of.
    For the dreads, I have no idea but I remember reading in the bible about dreads-
    1. Song of Solomon 5:11
    “His head is like gold, pure gold;
    His locks are like clusters of dates
    And black as a raven.

    That is King Solomon himself with locks.

    2.Numbers 6:5
    ‘During the entire period of their Nazirite vow, no razor may be used on their head. They must be holy until the period of their dedication to the Lord is over; they must let their hair grow long.” They made a vow to God. Now how is dreads bad? You do you!! Your husband will love you for you,locks and all

  4. On the part of dreadlocks i totally relate!
    When I still had mine people told me that its not a professional look
    I mean what happened to respecting other peoples sense of style!
