A Lil’ Somethin’ Somethin’

Killing 'em in the Cropped Kente

For my girl Javai’s birthday I was uber proud to be celebrating with her while she wore one of my custom creations…but you know I had to whip up a lil’ somethin’ somethin’ for myself. After Javai’s final fitting I had but a few hours to make the necessary alterations to her dress, find something for me to wear, and get ready. Once I took care of Javai’s look I rummaged through my fabric basket to see what I could use to whip up a look for me. I wanted something that wouldn’t overshadow the birthday girl but yet still promote my brand.

Using some West African Kente cloth fabric, I made a cropped puff sleeve top with a simple zipper up the back. Paired with some high-waisted faux leather leggings, a tribal beaded necklace, and peep-toe booties; I achieved an effortless look that was oh so haute!
