Taken on the sly with my phone on Oxford St. Apart from Afros, the girls are wearing braces. The 80s are back in a strange recombined way.
Afros were a 60s - 70s phenomenon.The 80s were known for hair straightened with the best relaxer money could buy.The 80s might be back because of the shoulder pads, not the Afros.Don't you know anything, Jeremy?**rolls eyes skywards**
If you'd read my post a little more diligently Madame K, you will have noticed I was referring to the 1980s in terms of the braces. The 'recombined' aspect is the fact that braces AND afros are back in style.If your determined enough to find mistakes, you'll find mistakes, even if it is you who is doing the mis-taking.
hey J,seems you find it hard taking corrections!!!must be becos you're more nigerian than nigerians,abi
whose is correcting who. Yes Afros were a 60s/70s phenomenon. but if you lived through the 80s and early ninties in London Afro was the order of the day for those who remember the raregroove movement or soul underground spearhead by the likes such Djs as Norman Jay, Femi Williams (Young Disciple), Trevor 'madhatter' Nelson etc. Kemi, you were obviously not in the UK in the 80s. but also the operative word here is 'recombined'. Braces was definitely in the 80s. In any case, so much fashion is about appropriation and reappropriation.
When the hell were braces ever in fashion? I must have missed that!About the fros, love them, but unfortunately corporate america doesn't. Read a case recently of a woman who got fired because she refused to straighten her natural fro? does this hair discrimination exist in the uk too?
you were into the New Romantics in the 80s, then you will probably know about braces. Remember Duran Duran, Human League, Paul Palmer (and the woman in red lipsticks), Madonna in Desperately seeking Susan and many more. Jeremy, you obviously know a bit of fashion history. More than I can say about one of your readers.

Jeremy you've reworded your post, you wimpy COWARD!!! You've removed everything you wrote about the girl's Afro and replaced it with "Apart from Afros,"Next time I will have to copy and paste into my reply, so that people will know.Jeez.... and my comment wasn't even written in any serious "correcting" tone.For someone who thinks he's good at winding me up, you really do have such a thin skin!...such acts of desperation.**Sigh**
erm Kemi, I did not change the post one bit. It is your head that changed between readings.As another commentor said, you show a little ignorance about fashion history in the 1970s and 1980s in the UK. Its ok though - you weren't here and its not your speciality subject..
It is your head that changed between readings- very OBJesque. You've spent too long in Naija J- you're now trading Naija insults too
As said in forest gump," Run, Jeremy Run"Dude, these females are not playing, just run!
LMAO!!! Oh my days, jeremy u really have become 'very naija' o!!! Lol at its ur head that changed btwn readings.ps: where is my ice cream na!!!
Oh! So, Jeremy has noticed that Kemi looks for mistakes even where there are none. The cheeky insecure tart of a shrew.
Yes the bands wore braces, but I never saw ANYONE wearing them in the street, and I am highly fashionable:)
Jeremy said... erm Kemi, I did not change the post one bit. It is your head that changed between readings. WHATEVER DUDE.It's not the first time you've done it and I don't expect you to admit to it now as you didn't the last time.Not that it matters. Next time I will just do as I'm doing here, and copy and paste the words, that way you can't use the editorial prerogative that is hindsight. As another commentor said, you show a little ignorance about fashion history in the 1970s and 1980s in the UK. Actually I think you'll see they were referring to Lisa, not me, dumb-dumb. I never said anything about braces, which is what the fashionista at 3:51pm was referring to. Its ok though - you weren't here and its not your speciality subject.. That's the same argument your detractors use, when they complain that an oyinbo man "who wasn't there" talks about Naija before 2001.You complain to me about it when it happens, but you don't hesitate to use the same PATHETIC excuse when it suits you.I'm quite disappointed actually, usually you can spot when I'm being facetious, even when the italics and asterisks I used in the first comment aren't there to emphasise it. Think back to the conversation we had in Neal's Yard last week about the blog. You don't need to strive for depth and poignancy in every single post and trying to show your keen insight at every opportunity, attacking anybody who disagrees as some sort of ignorant philistine. It's so your style, and its old hat. I'm sensing some underlying frustration on your part, and I suspect it's to do with the reason why you're in London at the moment. Is that why you are being more sensitive than usual, Jeremy?If that's the case then I'll leave you be for now.
kemi we both love winding each other up. I'm not sure we're ever that serious with each other se? Please feel free to monitor my original posts. I'll freely admit to post-comment editing anytime!
I'm sensing some underlying frustration on your part, and I suspect it's to do with the reason why you're in London at the moment.Mind your business, Kemi. At least with Jeremy, you know he's not always frustrated. You are always.
What is your problem Kemi? If Jeremy is frustrated, that is a personal conversation between the two of you and you shouldn't bring to the blogsphere. that just breach of trust .
The girl, Kemi, lacks breeding. Simple and short.
@Kemi,Permit to say that you really shouldn't make personal conversations public especially in this circumstance. if you met up with jeremy and assumed he was frustrated that's his forte', mixing his perceived state of mind with his views on blogsville just spells vindictive. Not hating, just my 2 cents..
