Yah! Nigerian Independence Day!


"Ok, I'm not usually this excited by Nigerian independence day (love Nigeria!!) but I get this excited when I get to wear great pieces from Nigerian innovators ;)

My cool '1960' tee is from apparel group Ikono Klast. Check them out. They've got both male and female tees and similar designs for other African countries. Comfortable and patriotic...what's not to like!

My ankara pants were gifted to me by my ankara fairy god-mother ;)....literally every ankara piece I have at the moment is from her - pants, skirts, blazers, dresses - you name it! All made by a local tailor in Lagos, Nigeria. I'm slowly trying to convince her to feature on the blog. Her closet is ankara heaven....I'll wear her down soon, I know it!...watch this space ;)"
