Enveloped in Ankara!










Hello! I'm starting this week with a heavy heart for the recent victims in the Paris attacks.  My condolences goes out to their families.  With this happening, I saw a huge mention of this on social media (instagram, fb), every news coverage which is good to see so people are informed, but makes me ask the question why I have not seen this happening with all the violence and attacks caused by similar groups like Boko Haram in places like Nigeria, Cameroon, Kenya (Africa), or even other bombings in areas like Beirut?!  We should be just as aware and outspoken of all these too.  So as everyone is saying pray for Paris which I agree, I say pray for Boko Haram victims, pray for victims of other attacks, pray for the world and pray for peace.

Speaking of Africa, this envelope printed fabric was given to me by my mom and I had it sewn into this peplum skirt.  The skirt is called ankara which is basically african inspired fabrics/prints/fashion.  I love that something thought of as traditional can be modernized as paired here.  Thanks for reading!

  1. I couldn't agree more. Let's also bear in mind that there's boko haram in Nigeria and other countries are affected with terrorist attacks too. It will be nice if Nigeria is remembered.

    I love the skirt. The detail on and the print is beautiful.

  4. Love this outfit on you and that skirt is TDF. We never hear about the tragedies happening everyday in Africa & other countries. We must be more mindful.
