ANKARA AFFAIR

I trust everyone is doing well. I was so excited when I was invited to a Nigerian wedding this weekend, seeing as I have not been to a wedding for over 5 years. I don't know about you but immediately I make plans to go somewhere, I think of what to wear and how I'm going to blog it. Initially, I couldn't figure out what to wear. I would have gone shopping, for proper wedding attire like maybe a pastel colored dress. However, I am on a no-shopping challenge and am not very rich at the moment, hence, I had to work with what I had.

 So I finally decided to wear my ankara skirt which I styled last year HERE. I think this outfit is very appropriate for a Nigerian wedding. So when in doubt just wear ankara when going to a Nigerian affair. Being a typical African I was running late so I had to quickly take pictures, no time to change and adjust locations so I do apologize for the picture quality. However, when I got to the wedding we waited for an hour before starting (shaking my head) I could have spent more time taking pictures. Overall the wedding was fun, congratulations to the newlyweds, long life, love and posterity to you.







Skirt: Custom made / Top: Thrift-ed / Clutch: Thrift-ed / Shoes: Forever 21(Alternative)
/ Belt: Workshop(Alternative)


I got my ankara skirt tailored when I went back to Nigeria last year but you can check out etsy.com for custom made ankara skirts.
Till next time guys.

I'd love to see this skirt with the burgundy lace top.

Tuke Morgan said...

So I love the different ways you have styled this skirt in various posts. I'm going to sort out/tidy/arrange my cupboard and style an ankara skirt in a similar way. Either with a white vest top and scarf, black top and bowtie or the way it's styled in this post. Please do the bowtie tutorial soon!!! Thanks for the inspiration!
