"If you're familiar with my signature Ankara dress, then you know that I have a love affair with embroidery. So it's no wonder that I'm totally onboard with the "embroidery trend," which started a while ago.
A well done embroidered pattern can transform an otherwise boring outfit into an interesting work of art. Yup! Embroidery requires artistic ingenuity, and kudos to those geniuses that keep 'em coming.
For instance, let's take a look at a blue and white pinstripe shirt. Yeah, it's a classic clean look for a man or woman. But with embroidery, it becomes pretty and quite feminine. I can't get enough of it, and stores can't sell enough of it. In fact, I usually get turned off when I see the same type of outfit in more than one store, but though this trend is available in every single store I've been to recently - honestly it's ridiculous -, I still can't help falling in love over and over again.
I paired mine with white linen pants, my zebra embroidered purse, and blue and white striped loubs from my "never stops giving friend," Noma.
If you don't already have a blue & white pinstripe embroidered top/blouse, you should totally get one. Not because it goes with everything (and it does), but because it's absolutely pretty! I think pretty is a good enough reason, don't you think?
