My Style: Modern African

1 min read

This sweater grabs your attention the second you set eyes on it.

It's a little bit difficult to get into, since it's made from a stretchy yet super soft cotton blend fabric but it's totally worth the effort. The peplum hits at just the

I've had this dress for a long time but never found an occasion to wear it which is strange because I fell in love with it the moment I saw it. I suppose it's because the animal print and fit makes it more of an evening dress and I don't get out that much but that's no
