I love this outfit that I created. I wanted to go African Print 'Traditional Style'. It didn't take too long to create this african-inspired outfit because I simply knew what I wanted to do. First, I didn't want any piece of this outfit to coordinate with the same or similar print. Notice that the skirt, the jacket, and the shoes, differ their printing from each other. That's what I love about African-Print. The print may differ from each other, but that doesn't mean they can't go together, because they can. After I added the jacket, skirt, and shoes together, I wanted a pre-fall/autumn color as the top. So, I added the orange silk blouse to give it it's color blocking affect. I also added the african-designed necklace and watch to give the outfit a more traditional look and I subjected that long dreadlocks should or can be a perfect hairstyle to complete to overall look.

I gained confidence with my sets by joining groups and entering contests! At first, I wouldn't join if there were lots of entries or members.
 
I finally twisted off and joined in with the big groups. When I finally won a first place trophy, I gained so much confidence. I want to pay it forward! Some of you have unbelievable sets that need to be recognized! I want to help!

Amazing Outfits (Outfit Only)

This group focuses on the outfit. A set does not have to look like a magazine layout to be amazing. Please note...we are not teenagers, and will most likely not be drawn to sets geared towards the younger generation. Thanks for your interest. Jackie and Bev
