Sunshine after the mix of rain and snow! A review of the pretty pumps tomorrow 😉
Saw this Rag and Bone dress on Cameron Diaz and loved it (not enough to spend $500 on a polyester dress, but surely we can get this look combination with a button down white shirt, a black sweater and black skirt with belt…no?)
Throughout this year, I have been blogging on a few African Designers every Wednesday or so (have tried my best to keep a consistent schedule) under the Afrique & Fashion tag. On occasions, I have also posted some African designs that I have worn myself, and few readers have asked me personally to post more of my own African ensembles.
Starting today, I will be posting, on a monthly basis, one of my own designs. I am at the early stage of sewing (not even beginner) but I usually draw or put together various pieces then ask an expert seamstress to sew it all for me. Will keep the weekly ebelandi’s African Designer of the Week posts but on the first Wednesday of every month, we will have a “Designed by Bel” post where I will model an outfit that I have designed on my own (sewed with help of paid seamstress where applicable) with inspiration pictures if applicable as well.
My very first Designed by Bel file below. Let me know what you think?
Loving the fading orange from this interesting jacket, as well as the leaves and ruffles from the dress….getting into Fall mode! Hope you all enjoyed a great weekend!
This week, I’ll start a new series on the NYFW trends for Spring Summer 2015. Stay tuned and @+
Do not have a series of outfits to share this week; however, I would recommend the Daisy dress by BHLDN (on sale at the time of this post). Received lots of compliments last week. I will post a review next Tuesday but it’s a keeper! Below paired with a pink belt and shoes. Let me know what you think!
