What to wear: Simply Ankara

I've literally been sewing my summer wardrobe. Do you remember both of these prints from my recent beach post (here) and this post. These are African prints (Ankara) that I got from friends and family. I sketch whenever I'm bored, then I pull out my sewing machine and get to work. I made this simple dress and belted it to give it a little definition. I paired the dress up with these amazing fabfind from Marshalls. These flats are from Pour la Victoire and retail for over $200 but I got it for only $15. Score! I'm also loving the mocha-licious lipstick from wet'n'wild.The "nude" lipsticks normally look peach on me but this color is a perfect nude for darkskinned girls and it's only about 2 buck for a tube. 

What I wore
Dress: Self made// Flats: Pour la Victoire c/o Marshalls// Purse: Anne Klein// Watch: Guess// Bracelet: FV21 & Ghanaian beads// Earrings: Gifted (from Ethiopia)
