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?
These heels had been on my watch list for a while (as you know, I love ankle shoes). Also, I was attracted by the stacked heel. Well, see the review below 🙂
What: Lanie Stacked-Heel Sandals by J.Crew
Material: 100% leather upper and lining, man-made sole.
Quality: Very good leather; sturdy heel; should last a long time if maintained properly. I also love the color, some neutral grey that could be matched with various outfit. Too bad this summer has been cool. Feels like Fall already!
Fit: Great! You can really feel the leather lining, almost similar to the Nike air technology by Cole Haan as far as comfort is concerned, at least to me. I like the stacked heel as it helps for balance because those heels are pretty high, they feel higher than four inches 🙂
Sissi’s Verdict: Keeper!. Do you agree? Please share!
