Ibim Couture: Day and Night & Casual Days

Dressing for the occasion: UCSB African Culture Show

Since my closet wasn't fully stocked with a supply of fashionable Ankara dresses (as my mother's closet is) I had to search for something in mine that would still reflect a "tribal" or African feel. Here's what I came up with:
Head piece: Kente clothe tied into a turban.
Top: Black and white leopard print cropped corset. (Charlotte Russe, $5)
Outerwear: Royal blue blazer (Ross, $10)
Skirt: Black pleated mini skirt
Shoes: "Nude" pumps

Tip: If your adding outerwear to your attire, make sure it looks fabulous both ways! This daytime and nighttime outfit was perfect for this event that started at 4 in the afternoon, and ended at midnight. 

Casual Mondays: Denim with a twist
I think denim looks great on everyone! On this cool summer afternoon, I chose to spice up my denim tee with cream colored wedges, and black turban, and gold triangle earrings. Add red lipstick for a pop of color!
