Akiiki Fashion Week: Azizi Tights, Arise Magazine Fashion Week: Kiki Clothing, Natural Hair Sway

Akiiki Fashion week has cooked up another tight storm.....Azizi tights,,,,The aztec trend took over in the winter months and I promised myself not to get anything aztec,,,,however!!!....., I came across this print which is of course...African print, with an aztecky (does this word exist??) feel to it...I love it love it love it to bits....So today I assemble before you....the Azizi tights...yum yum yum.....(Azizi means powerful and beloved in Arabic)... The tights are really cute and I thought I would show you how I wore it....The top I am wearing is from an old indian kaftan that I found in a charity shop, cut the sleeves off, put slits on the sides and turned it into a vest....put the screen print x-ray masai image on the front .....I loved how it came out....initially it was a mistake coz I should have used a different print, fabric or ink however gradually as months go by...I fall more deeply in love with the xray look which you do not really see much of out there....

Enjoy Azizi and the x-ray Masai look screen print top(fingers are out of breath writing that!

I go on so much about natural hair inspiration, afro this, afro that, afro here, afro there....and yes....thanks again to reader x who emailed me asking to come out and show my dear darling reader x...I was not hiding from I show you my natural hair...which I am proud of....I hope this calms you down...but thanks for the email because it reminded me of a saying..."if you can talk the talk, you;ve got to walk the walk" therefore I too can walk and talk afro.....(
