Double Dose Of Wrap

June 13, 2016 Unknown 11 Comments

The throw-on commonly worn by women are either jackets, blazers, kimonos, trench coats or vests. Recently, I subscribed to the use of other clothing items apart from those mentioned earlier to serve the purpose of covering

The versatility of fashion has given room for a lot of things. In this look, I decided to wear two wrap dresses. One as the base outfit and the other as a jacket. I didn't exactly have a plan for them when I bought these dresses, at the moment it seemed like a good idea but after trying them on, I instantly fell in love with one and hated the other one. I hated the longer dress. I'm not sure why but I did anyway. I was so close to returning it but then a light bulb lit up in my head...I could wear it as a jacket. Then I tried to experiment. The results came out as I expected- successful.

The beauty about throw-ons with light weight fabric is the fitting and how easy and effortless they look.

For accessories, I went with metals as the practice has been of late and my black studded sandals.

Seeing my natural hair on the blog isn't something most people are familiar with. It's funny how I scarcely post pictures with it when I'm, in the words of my best friend, a full time "naturalista".  LoL! I guess I should work towards showing my hair more often.
