Dressed In My Afrik Western Outfit

 Eya  momma at home in denim and African print, after returning from bank verification (BVN) exercise. This look is my afrik western fashion.
 These text messages have been coming since 2014, The Central Bank  Of Nigeria has directed that bank account details be verified before June 30, 2015. Why I haven't done this before today, I don't know. Procrastination kept me saying "there is still time" This morning, I got a reminder and had to find my way to the nearest branch as directed.

Dressing to go verify account details shouldn't be that sophiscated na. I automatically switched into my modern afrik mode and jumped into this blue denim and the lovely African print top. This top actually embarrassed me but thankfully it happened in the car. Looking at me now, you won't know the zipper is busted but, that's exactly what happened. When you do not wear an oufit for long, it gets tired of waiting in the closet and quietly waits for the day you'll wear before protesting. I got home safely, leaned my back towards the car and asked that some shots be taken. This top has a tailored skirt that I don't like. combining it with the blue denim has given me another outfit.


By the way, I didn't know my daughter is behind me reading this post as I type, and then, she pops a question, "mommy do you have a skirt at your age?" what a question. Why won't I have a skirt? I wear trousers a lot because I feel very free in them. I don't need to be too careful when climbing, hurrying, sitting or even squatting.

The red wedge is by Very Voletile, it's a gift from my beautiful sister-inlaw, she got them in the US and packaged straight to moi with other lovely gifts. They are so high, I only wear them when I go out without the baby because carrying him and pulling wedges this high is a risk.
 I feel good 

 This outfit is my creation by way of combining Western with African
 View the rest as one:
The earrings and large bracelet came together as gifts from Dubai, hubby went for a workshop and got them to make me think that not travelling along  with him is ok so long as gifts arrive but I refused to be bought, eventhough I love all the jewelry. so, I don't really know the cost but they are lovely. Who am I wearing now? Blue denim from Old Navy, it was actually too long and I asked the tailor to cut to my length so, now it fits. The top is from my former tailor here in Abj.

I braid with kinky a lot  hope I don't bore you with them. For the new tailor, I'm yet to get the outfits he is making for me, once they arrive, it's photo shooting all the way and sharing. You'll see so much of African fabric combined with western fashions on this blog.
Have fun viewing and urm... giving some tips.
