Heey! How are y’all doing? Where do we start? We can start right here and say we took a holiday and enjoyed it to the fullest. Explored some fun activities in the tropics and now we are back to life as usual, super-charged for the days ahead. All the best to you too!
When my tailor suggested that I could make an african print dress this time, I gave her all possible excuses not to but she convinced me to find a design that suits me and that I’d love the results. I did and when the dress was ready I couldn’t believe it.
I thought my graduation African print look was cute so here are more pictures on the look. I hope the outfit inspires your next outfit. Have a great week.

A few years back, if you mentioned african print or “kitenge” as the locals call it, it wouldn’t stir me at all. Infact, I always associated the african print style with aged people, my grandmother used to love them, my mum not so much but nowadays it seems that it’s her favorite style. When my close friend asked me whether I am interested in making an african print outfit, I was like, “Girl, that wouldn’t work”. I hadn’t owned any african inspired piece prior to that question and I wasn’t sure I was going to change. Since she had many cute pieces of her own, she managed to convince me to get the fabric for myself and for my mum too.
