Hi all, some outfit ideas from this week. Lots of rain and snow/sleet here…and it’s getting even colder…I miss Spring! Hope you enjoy the outfits below, and let me know which you like best.

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?
Pretty relaxing weekend and simple outfit. The dress was on super sale a while back at Madewell. Let me know what you think of the pairing with red.
