For those of you who don’t know, I am African (West African to be specific) and I bleed African. I relocated to America about 12 years ago as a teenager who [unfortunately] didn’t know much about my culture. Ironically, I learnt to appreciate the African culture soo much in America for several reason – I missed Africa and that was the only way to have that connection. Also, I met various people who came from different countries, and I was very impressed to see how they showcased their culture through food, fashion and music. My country (Cameroon) has several tribes with a blend of cultures of which Ankara is a huge part. Ankara has always had a presence in almost every African occasion from weddings, funerals, parties, to just an everyday attire. Ankara is fashionably versatile as it can be styled in every way possible from casual to over-the-top chic. During my trip to Bora Bora, I had the chance to enjoy the richness of Ankara as the environment reminded me so much of the bungalows in some of the local regions of Cameroon. I hope you enjoy the pictures just as much as I did wearing the outfits. Have a lovely week ahead and don’t forget to look better, feel better, and do better.
What I am wearing: Ankara Dress – here | Accessories – local store in South Africa | Bicycle – borrowed 🙂
