Michael and I were invited to an Africa Youth Recognition dinner last weekend. Given the name of the event, I wanted to wear something very simple yet interesting with an African flare. After going through my closet with no luck I took to my sewing machine with a piece of ankara fabric and lots of chiffon. I thought well a maxi dress no biggie but didn't realize working with lots of slippery chiffon will pose a challenge. Several hours later this is what I came up with. Wore it with minimal and structured accessories.
