Ankara Inspiration #3 – That Ankara dress everyone should have. . .


It seems that I am graduating from a not-so-pleasurable relationship with African prints, to a best friend kind of relationship, and it’s not going to end now.


Today I have another Ankara inspiration
for you all, and I want you to learn to love Ankara, if you didn’t love it do much before. you just need to choose which print suits you best, and get a kickass style out of it.

Make sure you check my Ankara Inspiration #1 – The bell sleeves, and #2 – the ankara jacket. 



Ankara lace bodycon dress



Today’s look is an Ankara bodycon gown with an asymmetric sleeve. The sleeves go from one up, to an off-shoulder…a sort of one-sided off-shoulder gown.

I’m partnering with my friend and makeup artist (@damitunmi) for this post. Mine is all pink and purple, while hers is cream and green.

We decided to use lace material for the sleeves to make the dress more exciting. We are both sporting ankle strap heels and hair from @empressly_store.

This gown is simple and beautiful. As we should all know, simplicity is my watchword ✌

Looking at these pictures… I mean who would see this and say African prints isn’t beautiful, or isn’t slay-worthy?

Happy new month to you all… And happy workers’ day.

I still have classes today 🙄 #lifeofalawstudent

The post on my law dinner is coming up next. Stick with me.


Till next time

  1. Beautiful pictures babe!
    I used to be an avid hater of wearing African prints because the tailors never got it right.
    It was just something I admired on people but never wore.
    Untill late last year,
    I had to attend a family function with a compulsory dress code of African prints and so I had no choice. Thankfully, the tailor didn’t disappoint.

    1. I also shared Ankara, but loved it on other people. I still hate traditional.. You’d hardly see me in lace and gele, or two wrapper, but I’m loving Ankara now.
      Thanks for stopping by love.

    1. I love the word you used — magical. Yes they are magical, especially when you have a really beautiful print and you see something really pretty, long and flowy, and it feels like all you can do is twirl and twirl. 🤗
      As for the classes, we are getting used to expecting the unexpected 😪
      Thanks love

  3. Beaurifulllllll!!! Love the prints you chose and the off shoulder style!! Permission to steal the style? I’ve made it my mission to transform my wardrobe to 50% African prints at 50% minimal outfits. So far I’m on track. I love how we Africans are embracing everything that is OURS. Let’s own it 💃🙌🙌❤
