TAKING STOCK-ANKARA GRADUATION DRESS

TAKING STOCK-ANKARA GRADUATION DRESS

Hi loves, so it seems this is when my year is sort of starting, so happy new year! Am caught in between my excitement and my disappointment for doing this in March but for now I’ll roll with the excitement!. I got this idea of taking stock from a couple of bloggers and vloggers I follow and I thought it would be something interesting to do.

In today’s post am wearing my ankara/kitenge graduation dress, I did not feel like I gave it the attention it deserved on my social media that time so…yea feast your eyes on this beauty. I also paired it with different heels that felt more subtle than the red lace ups I wore on the actual day since I wanted the dress to stand out most, hope you like it. Enjoy…
