african print skirt

 african prints are on the map and not just here in the US. take a look at mainstream designers such as Marni, Kenzo and DVF that are fully embracing the african prints and trends. but what i want is authentic african designers like Christie Brown, Gloria Wavamunno, Loza Maleombho and Madam Wokie  making their way into my closet! for my african fashion fix i always check out 4AcesDate being that one of the girls Ozzy is based in Lagos, Nigeria where
 Arise Magazine Fashion Week happens. i hope to make it there one day. the fashion is amazing. until then...American Apparel Afrika Skirt will do!

Bag: Light Years NC | Necklace: Thrifted from Housing Works | Ring: Got in Mexico

i am totally smitten with the print on this skirt mostly because it has my two favorite colors at the moment in it: yellow and green. check out my other african inspired posts here, here and here. just so you all know i will be rocking this bag with almost every outfit possible. its a great go-to bag because its so versatile and chic. im going to try and find more of them and report back to you all where you can get one. i get soooo many questions about this bag. But the store I got it from doesn't sell online  (BOOOOOOOOO).
retailers need to step their game up.

so waddaya think folks?
also if you know of other great african designers please drop a note in the comment section so i can stalk them. lol.
