Create Your Own Style on the 26th

“Create your own style… let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others.” 

― Anna Wintour

Mama Liberia will be 169 years on July 26. In whichever way you decide to celebrate her independence, let it be unique to yourself, yet identifiable to others. The 26 is a day to celebrate our freedom, therefore be sure to identify with your African heritage on this day. To stand out in style and confidence, wear dazzling prints, embroidery, bold colors, wild prints, tribal jewelry along with flowing, ripple dresses.
