Weekend Style: African Mix

Happy Friday and once again the year is running by but as long as i can keep up, i won't complain. Today i am sharing a look from last weekend (which is not new to some you that follow me on Instagram- here)



This outfit portrays a mix of cultures - African and Western. I was dressing up for an African Party and usually i would wear African styles from head to toe but on this day, i decided to switch things up a little(incorporating one of my new year's resolution which is to think outside the box once in a while, i am not exactly one of the most creative people but i am currently working on that). So here we are - African head tie(Gele) on denim. This look wouldn't have been possible without the expert touch of my dear friend and bomb make up artist Bukky of Bdash. The face, the head-tie and the photography skills was all her(talk about multi talented). Check her out on Instagram and Facebook. If you are in the NYC/DMV area definitely contact her when you need a special touch.






One of my favorite things about this outfit is the play with colors, it was actually Bukky who pointed out that these were all primary colors and i love how good they all look together. I have previously styled African clothing and Gele in the past, check them out here, here and here. 
Just a little note on this top, i got it for close to nothing thanks to IfChic, check out this site for their coins collection system that allows you to collect up to 3 coins(worth $6) everyday you visit the site and you get to redeem the points on the 24th of every month. So if you like free or paying close to nothing for beautiful things like i do, then you still have alot of time to get on this before the 24th.

  1. I think you're most definitely part of the creative club, Osy. This look could've gone so wrong and costumey with the Gele but instead, you made it edgy and street cool by wearing those jeans. Epic.
