Unique Nigerian African traditional dress paired with tribal chief beads and a sleek pair of studded heels.
Happy Black History Month darlings!!

The month of February commemorates a very important event in the history of the African Diaspora. Created in 1926, the second week of February was specifically chosen because it marked the birthday of Abraham Lincoln and Fredrick Douglass. Quite befitting, the gorgeous Diane of Dee-VineAnonyme and I teamed up together on a collaboration on a tribute to the motherland, Africa [Nigeria x Ivory Coast]. Dee has a very unique style – she incorporates a lot of colors and prints into her outfit and her lip color is no exception (Find her on IG HERE). Oh and I love her hair too 🙂
