15 Nov Whatever Lola Wants
Peeps, let me tell you about my friend Lola. I’ve known this beautiful soul for a few years now and the first thing about her that will capture you is her smile. The next is her authenticity. And a CLOSE third is her sense of style. Born in Nigeria and raised in California, Lola has been traveling annually to Nigeria to employ local Oyo tailors and seamstresses to create her amazing contemporary designs. All of her pieces, like this peplum skirt, are handmade with high-quality Ankara.
This skirt is fully lined, which is also a bonus. While the fabric is sturdy cotton with little stretch, the cut is designed to accommodate hips and buns. I also loved how well it paired with a plain v-neck tee.
Also, can you even stop looking at my boots? I dare you to try. I felt like I was wearing disco balls. A stranger stopped to Instagram me. It was a good day.
That jeweled heel, tho. Anyway, back to Lola. As much as I was in love with this skirt, I was definitely the most excited about the crop top. You all know how I feel about crop tops.
OK let’s break it down. It’s lined colorfully. The print is cray. AND THE LONG SIDE PEPLUM WHAT IS HAPPENING. I mean, anything I can twirl is just too good for words.
Get a load of the print in its full glory. This will definitely get me through the foggy fall days ahead.
