Ankara/Kitenge/Kente Styles.

" Tell your heart that the fear of sufferring is worse than the sufferring itself. And that no heart has ever sufferred when it goes in search of it's dreams because every second of the search is a second's encounter with God and with eternity.~ The Alchemist~ Paulo Coelho

This Ankara  outfit was inspired by Pinterest, plus I also wanted to have an African outfit because am African y"all.. It's my birthday on Wednesday(27th September) so I decided to go for a photoshoot as a gift to yours truly. It's my first photoshoot so am incredibly happy with myself. There's a little foundation situation happening there but we're not going to talk about it.


What I have loved about this material is that the colour doesn't fade and that it's a heavy material.
It is a bit  crispy and ironing efforts may go unnoticed but overall a great material.







The material is a Ghanaian  and cost me around Kshs 2500, that's 25 dollars and I paid Kshs 1800 (18 dollars) to have it tailor made.

I have two straight dresses and the only difference is the shoulder designs.


I have paired with a black blazer but it can also go well with a denim jacket and maasai earrings
The white wedges are from a boutique in Nakuru along Kenyatta Avenue( I don't remember the name) and I love them because they are easy to pair with. They costs around Kshs 1700, that's 17$
The earrings are from Maasai market.
  Ankara clothes are great for any occassion from ruracio/aso ebi/ bride price occasions, church, outdoorsy occasions and  pairing them is effortless.

 Overall, I am now familiar with photoshoots and I look foward to having  another one. If you're in Nakuru and looking for a photographer, hit me up.
