Although I draw my inspiration from basically everywhere, I’ll have to say that the 70s are my favorite period in fashion history. Flared bottoms, a-line skirts, chunky heels, high waists; that era calls to me so much. I love my flared bottoms to sweep the ground if not I find it way too awkward. This ankara blouse is another vintage piece from Mummy LAJA dearest and the cuts are absolutely exquisite.

I never knew this day would come but I have been feeling this short hair SO hard. I shied away from short hairstyles because I didn’t think they were flattering for my face type but now, I’m hardcore contemplating staying short (and red) the whole of 2016. T’is really true, you’ll never know if something works or not if you don’t try it. I’ll leave you with that and hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!misslaja-70s-african-fashion-ankara-3 misslaja-1 misslaja-70s-african-fashion-ankara-16 misslaja-70s-african-fashion-ankara-13 misslaja-70s-african-fashion-ankara-12 misslaja-70s-african-fashion-ankara-15
