I received two marriage proposals within half an hour of stepping outside my house in this outfit. The first was from an overly persistent fellow that I made the mistake of flashing a smile to while I was waiting for the meat guy at my local supermarket. After escaping him with my number and name intact, I bumped into thing 2 when I stopped to pick up my order of shrimp fried rice. Thing 2’s strategy was to strike up a conversation with me by pointing out that my skirt was not authentically African. Yeah, dude, I saw the big ass Forever 21 tag on the back panel of the skirt when I was putting it on. Just as the cashier handed me the stapled brown paper Thing 2 asked “Are you single” he continued “because I would like for you to be my wife.” I don’t think it was my outfit this time, I think I just happened to be outside on hunting day.
I achieved this ethnic chic look by balancing the tribal-print skirt with my faux black leather vest. To complete this look, I went for my favorite metal pieces in lieu of wooden ones that would have made the look too literal.
I am wearing:
Vest: Faux black leather vest
