Cut from a different clothe

Inspired by the local dress codes of far-off destinations; thee perfect ensemble for the upcoming season is on my body right now! Can you say “statement piece”?!  I know that I service a multiethnic audience and I myself have a multiethnic background but you don’t have to be exotic or have an African cultural background to respect and wear this trend. After all this trend is about mixing it up anyway. The thing I love about it is that while the prints may be ancient, when combined with these cuts and silhouettes the look becomes super modern. Team this skirt with a crisp white shirt, your faithful denim button down or bold print tee and get your passport out cause you are global chic, gurl!

This skirt AND crop top were both made to order by the wonderful Racheal of NGOZINigerian Hippie. Her Etsy store features dozens of customizable pieces (for all shapes and sizes) and plenty fabric options too.  She is super duper quick and easy to work with (the best kind of Etsy vendor). I was extremely pleased with my experience and can’t wait for my next piece(s)!
So, the moral of this story is:
  • Vibrant African prints are definitely Spring/Summer must haves.
  • Like MJ said: “It doesn’t matter if you’re black or white”.
  • Search no further for a source for your ethnically influenced, global-chic frocks because Nigerian Hippie has the goods and is also offering my peeps 15% off! Holla! Promo code is Bcurve http://www.etsy.com/shop/ngozi
