OK soooo some of you may remember my post where I talked about my mum jetting of to Nigeria and having some clothes made for me? Weeeell...the result is FINALLY HERE!!
OK so it was here a while back but when I first saw them, I was devastated and I hid them in the back of my wardrobe and vowed never to think of it again. Dunno if it is the new hair or a post from my new blog friend about her crazy trousers [check her out here] but I was inspired to try on some of the stuff again. I say some because the rest are genuinely foul and will never be seen on my body by human eyes.
BUT for the rest, after some strategic styling, methinks my summer is going to be heavily influenced by my hometown.
I'm still in two minds about some though..feel free to tell me what you think??
I have always liked these BUT alas, mother dearest thought it best to embellish them with the below industrial sticker which [as you can see] has thwarted my every plan to remove it!! ANY AND ALL ideas/solutions are welcome..
the dress [well the one I am willing to show the world]...not sure I like it yet??
tribal trouser 2: at first i HATED these. Slowly warming up to them...sure it is borderline aladdin-esque but erm we're only young once etc...[what do you mean I'm not young anymore??]
the accessories that made it all possible.
speaking of accessories...what are we thinking of this necklace?? Sometimes it makes me feel that one step too tribal but now I kinda love? FEEDBACK PLEASE!!
LOVE, PEACE & AFRICAN BEADS!!
