Some outfit ideas for this week. As usual, let me know which you like best! I’ll update the links tonight.
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?
Hi all! Long time no post! It’s been busy month and will get a lot busier the next two months but will do my best to keep up with the posts. I did promise a review of the tennis dress by the Crew so will make sure to post tomorrow.
For today, below is an outfit inspiration from last weekend…am still on my resolution to pair an all neutral outfit with bright accessories. In this case, the accessory was a blue Vince Camuto perforated drawstring that I found on the sale rack at Saks few weeks back. I did not take a picture of the bag, but will try to remember to have it as a review series in the coming weeks as well. In the meantime, there is a writeup on the bag HERE though the color is camel, not blue.
The skirt is the same H&M circle I have reviewed here, but in the pale rose (excuse me…power pink) color. The skirt seems sold out online but you can find it in stores.

I hope you all had a great weekend, and let me know what you think of the combo!
