Hello people! This is my first style post. Drum rolls, please. It is about this cute mini black dress I wore last week to my niece’s graduation. I love the way it made me look like a nyong geh and not a mami pikin. So I thought it would be nice to share the details with you.
I paired it up with silver sandals which had been lying idle in my closet for a while. I bought the sandals from a thrift store. I’m sure you can tell I love thrift stores by now! I love how comfortable the sandals feel. They make me look like I’m wearing some sort of heels but I don’t even feel the discomfort of heels. The marching clutch is an okrika (second hand) one bought from a hawker on the streets of Yaounde over two years ago. Ha!
Let’s talk about that hair. It’s a wig ooo. I pulled back my natural hair and wore a wig cap then I fetched this old abandoned wig from my closet and revamped it. Oh the wig is called Forest Meadow. I bought it from Hairsisters.com. You can purchase it HERE.
In all, I love the way the outfit made me look sassy and chic without sacrificing decency. Since the dress is really short, I plan on re-rocking it with knee length sandals for a casual look or with a black pantyhose and six-inch heels for a more sophisticated look. Do you have any ideas on how I could further style the dress? Do let me know below.
There you have it! My very first style post. Let me know if you would like more posts like this.
