ankara print maxi skirt

Do you usually buy stuff and end up not wearing them because you’re scared of ruining them? Or wearing and tearing them quicker? This African print maxi skirt is one of those items in my closet. Hard to believe it’s my first time wearing it after a year.

It was gifted to me by my best friend, sister and makeup artist extraordinare Sandra Ekukole. Check out her ig @bihyouty. She asked for my measurements one day and asked me what I wanted sewn and I said a skirt that would swallow me up! In a couple of days, a local tailor had whipped up this beauty. When I received it I was overjoyed. It fit perfectly, it felt luxe, it was the perfect length and the skirt had the exact fullness I was hoping for.

It was so massive yet fitted, I felt like a princess. Everyone wanted to know where I got it from. I got so many compliments. It almost went to my head I tell ya :/

Most of my ankara wear has been gifted to me. Probably because, there are only a few dressmakers abroad that can sew as well as our seamstresses back home. Unfortunately, after being bitten once I am sceptical about trying out some of the IG and Etsy boutiques who flaunt gallant designs and boast of faultless embroidering skills… I feel safer ordering from back home. Even high end designer brands have jumped on the ankara bandwagon. And some of the prices they charge for African pieces is simply extortionist and unfair. I’m all about supporting independent boutiques so, If you know a top notch tailor in the UK though, hit me up below!

I can’t wait to style this over and over! Are you a repeat offender like me?
