Talk [Derby] To Me!

Happy Wednesday loves!! As some of you may know this past weekend was the KY Derby and though I’ve never been (which is crazy!) I imagined what I would wear if I went and this was the first thing that I came up with. I received this amazing Ankara print fuchsia and green skater skirt from the owner of an amazing Etsy store N’omose Couture...have I mentioned how much I’ve been loving Etsy? I’ve been snagging tons of wedding related items there lately. 
 Anywho, as a Nigerian girl I’ve always loved prints like these and jumped at the chance to have one custom made for me with the fabric of my choice and she did an incredible job! I’m actually going to wear this another way during my bachelorette weekend!

Make sure and check out her store, I’m sure you’ll fall in love with all of her pieces! All of my readers can also use the code Nomose10 to receive 10% off of their order!

    Discovered you through Klassy Kinks. I love your Ankara skirt! I'm currently flirting with making my own, but so scared to cut my pretty fabric! Lol. I'm excited to follow your blog. 🙂

    O my goodness! Her Etsy shop is amazing! I'll definitely be ordering from her in the future. And your skirt is so pretty. I regret not getting some American style clothing made from Nigerian fabric on my last trip there. Hopefully when I go back I'll get a wardrobe's worth of clothes made for me 🙂
