Heyyy my fine people! You all need to wear your sunglasses to view this post o! Can you see all the bright colours staring at you? As you know, ankara prints are some of my favourite things to wear. It doesn't matter what style you make with them, those colours and patterns will always stand out. For my international readers, 'ankara' is a popular fabric/material here in Nigeria and in many parts of Africa. We make all kinds of clothing with them and even more recently accessories like the bag and bracelet I am rocking in this post.

I am practically drenched in head to toe 'Nigerian Brands'. INCREDIBLE!!!
 This pretty mini ankara dress is from the Nigerian brand, House of Simona. I spoke about this affordable brand in a post here . It is such a simple yet vibrant dress and you can dress it down with flat sandals for a casual look or dress it up with heels just like I did. In true House of Simona fashion, you can get this beauty for only NGN5,000. Amazing right? If you own a vibrant fabric and want to make this same style, you will be paying less than that. This brand is life!! 

I wanted the entire look to scream 'WILD WILD WILD ANKARA COLOURS' so I went with my ankara bag from The 5k shop which I styled previously here . Also a Nigerian brand and very affordable! My coral pumps from The Shoe Shop Nigeria also complimented the look nicely. Ankara shoes would have just taken it too far. Lol! Not like I own any though. I also added a red makeshift turban with a brooch and if you look closely you will notice another ankara item- my bangle/bracelet from Luverdi, yet another Nigerian brand.. 

This look was very afrocentric and I am hopelessly in love with it. Do you love it too? Tell me all about it in the comment section below. See you soon!
