I got this skirt early in the summer from a thrift/consignment store.I was attracted to the mustard yellow color and the design on it.I have no doubt that this skirt was made by an African tailor. The seam, elastic band and the round details, is reminiscence of a Nigerian tailor's work.The fabric used is brocade, and this was very popular in making similar styles in the early 90's. I am also guessing this skirt was part of a 'skirt & blouse' set.I could have sworn my Mom's tailor, Brother Rasak(from back in the days) made this.:-)
Anyway weather was great yesterday and i decided to give this skirt a try.Though not loving the ensemble,still thought i'd share with you guys.

BTW, I cut 6 inches of my hair last week (dont even ask me why) :-(. Hopefully it will grow back soon.
Enjoy the rest of the week Chicas.
