Good thing I took these outfit photos last week for this fashion blog post. The weather has been miserable here this week, with non stop rain and strong winds. Always good to make hay when the sun shines for real.
I am wearing a lovely blouse by Alala by Aken. You may remember this clothing brand from my last outfit post, where I featured a bomber jacket from the designer. Here, I am wearing another stunning piece from the brand. I love everything about this blouse. It is a stunning fabric designed beautifully. I can see the attention to detail on it. The sleeves are giving me life. Love them!
Here is a message from the brain behind the clothing brand –
Alala by Aken is a casual Afrocentric clothing brand .we make use of Ankara fabrics (African / Dutch wax print)for our designs.
The word Alala means dreamer in Yoruba, Nigeria.Dreamer has always been a word the creative director identifies with. A dreamer is anyone who has a cherished aspiration or ambition to fulfill . someone who want to dress a certain way and still be respected.This is Alala by Aken .
Our dream is to ensure that we fully satisfy your wish for an ideal, beautiful, quality and well sewn pieces.
