AFRO URBAN

I acquired this lovely top from Zuvaa online fashions. I like the idea of incorporating African textiles and designs with western clothing to create a unique look.  When I wear African wear it expresses my appreciation and pride of the motherland.
Zuvaa is shining a light on African Fashion. The Zuvaa Marketplace is a premier online destination to find unique and one of kind African Inspired pieces. They work directly with emerging designers around the world to bring the best selection of high quality, one of kind African Inspired pieces the industry has to offer.

Through this we are not only shining a light on African Fashion, but we are also shining a light on Africa. We are changing perceptions of Africa and Africans through fashion.”

I layered some of my African bracelets and wore a necklace from Chicos to add contrasting color. DSC00655

This top was handmade from Kaela Kay in Brampton, Ontario.  Because it was handmade I had to wait a couple of weeks for delivery.  100% cotton and fully lined. Beautifully made, and an easy fit for fuller waistlines. In August they will start a collection with ready made pieces that will ship sooner.

DSC00663Pairing this top with jeans is an easy choice and makes it more casual, but it would also look cute with a skirt to create a more professional look.

DSC00664I love creating a more individual and unique look that everyone won’t have, it’s easy with online fashions from Zuvaa.
