perfect tribal prints
I originally come from a beautiful tribe/ethnic group that i am so proud of but i also come from a place of peace. I will honestly tell you i did not not know how offensive it was to call these prints tribal prints or even ethnic prints. I personally don't think the fashion industry meant to offend anyone with it but i think the point behind the controversy is the fact that it is important to know the history, respect, honor the origins of prints and naming them correctly. Point taken, but hmm...if you must know, i do not know where half of the prints i wear originate from and that includes this outfit....not because i am lazy. It is the simple truth and i am always open to learn as i go. What would you call it? Geometric or Aztec, maybe?

Phew! Well, now that we have all that out of the way, i can tell you a bit about what is really going on here.

After moving around a lot, it is only typical to either have some of our things in storage or give them away. Let me just say, we saved some and i am glad. So yes, we finally moved all our crap and settled into our new place. Meanwhile, just a day before the actual move in day, we had to stop by the storage to pick up a couple of things. Sure of course in typical blogger fashion, while William went digging, i was busy outside twirling around in my cute, flirty, circle skirt. Can't you all tell i love wearing prints and even mixing them. These two "tribal print" pieces which seem like matching separates but were bought separately is nothing but a match made in man-made heaven. Just as fun and flirty as can be.

Thank you all for reading and yes i am back posting regularly again. Can't wait to share what i have in store for you all.

This is a stunning outfit doll, I love the colours so much. And I agree, it is so important to know or at least be able to name the fabric types your using because people can get offended. I see it happen a lot in the Fashion Industry and not enough people take blame for that. You look smashing xx

Nicely done matching the prints! Lots of nicknames are mistaken like you said. Good to know I wasn't the only one that is still learning about new things like that. Didn't need lots of accessories to make yourself flash

Mode Madison said...

Goodness you're stunning. That 2 piece is definitely a match made in heaven and I love it all on you.


Karen of MrsLookinggood said...

Thanks for visiting my blog Busola! You look fantastic in that outfit! I agree that they look like a match made in heaven and I never knew they were bought separately until you metioned it.

I don't have any tribal prints in my wardrobe unfortunately. I love color but those patters and colors are hard to find where I shop (thriftstores most often).

Congratulations if you've recently moved. Smart choice of keeping stuff you love and putting them in storage. You'll never know when you might need them.

P.S. I'd would love it if you can add your blog to the I’m a Miss/Mrs Looking Good Blog Directory. Check it out!
