ANKARA FEVER

My love for African
print is ever growing and as we enter spring/summer I hope to get my
hands on some bright, funky prints. Ankara, in my country, is referred to as Chitenge and its commonly worn by women but men also tend to wear it now. Growing up in Zambia, I always associated chitenge with grown ups. But in this modern day and age I have come to embrace the fabric more. During my last visit to Zambia i had a couple of outfits made for me, but I will probably share those pics in another post. Hopefully, when Mum goes to Zambia she will
bring me back some more outfits. Fingers crossed anyway. There are places I can
purchase African Fabric from here but it’s quite expensive to have an outfit
made. It’s double the price I would be charged back home, so why not just have
it done for me from my homeland. It means I save up init?

Anyway, I was
going through my mum’s wardrobe and came across this piece of fab. It’s a
hair tie for one of her various African outfits. I fell in love with it instantly
for some reason and I asked her if I could use it. I have posted a few pics just
to show you how vibrant this little piece is. What do you think of it? I paired
it with my Denim shirt and camisole and my necklace is from New Look. On My
Lips I have on Mystic by Sleek.
