So funny story. As many of you know, I get my Nigerian Ankara pieces custom made. This skirt came to me in July, and it couldn’t fit. Girl. I mean, It.Could.Not.Zip! This is to be expected when you get pieces back, sometimes the measurements are off, etc. This skirt came with a crop top, that can’t even fit my big toe, it looks like it was made for my niece. But I digress….
Fast forward, it’s September and New York Fashion Week, is taking place as I type this. I knew I had to get my life in order, because your girl is walking in a NYFW runway show very soon. I GAG!!! So with a bit of clean eating and a real conscious effort to look my best, guess what fits this time around? There’s no hope for the top, so I paired it with this tank top from Club Monaco.
I got sooooo many compliments as I strolled through the streets of NYC today. I also got asked if I was going somewhere nice. One thing I don’t subscribe to, is waiting for a “special occasion”, to dress up. It’s Saturday, i’m alive, my brows are done, and it’s Fashion Week. Those are all the reasons I need. So I threw on my skirt and went along my merry way! It’s bright, printed and has pockets! Winning all around!
There is nothing but the grace of God that has been blessing me and helping me reach my goals! Stay tuned to my Instagram for updates as the show draws close! I appreciate everyone’s support!
Enjoy your weekend and stay chic!
