Short Tulip skirts

It's a Friday morning and I chose to wear a flirty short skirt in lieu of my usual jeans. I saw it this week on my way home and had to have it. It has layers of bright colors and looks so much fun. I paired it with my silver wife-beater top and a  light black leather jacket. Swanky!

I used to really love short flirty skirts and for whatever reason I got rid of them in my usual purge. I also realized that I also don't have any tulip skirts, a fact that just surprises me as two years back that was a staple in my wardrobe. I could go to a date, go out dancing or just do a casual look with a tulip skirt. Today's post is about getting back to my forgotten staples.

I stumbled across something today on Instagram that made me want to do a fashion blog post. Dpipertwins . These two ladies are so bad-ass!!!!!! I kept looking for more and more of their designs. They use African print to make such modern and cool designs. Their earlier collections were not focused on ankara designs but I think they do their best work with African print. Oh and they are twins :)

I am still in my Lemonade obsession phase so even as I work on this post it's playing in the background. Bad-ass is what that album inspired in me and I'm on the look out for all things bad-ass more so bad-ass chics  the Dwomoh-Piper twins

From their own site below:

Danielle and Chantelle Dwomoh-Piper are Models, bloggers and Designers based in New York.Since the start of their fashion and accessory line," Dpipertwins " they have been blazing the fashion trail with features in WWD,Elle SA,Essence,HuffingtonPost,Black Enterprise,Today's Black Woman Style Report, Amsterdam Newspaper and The New York Daily Newspaper, as well as appearances on the Rachael Ray Show, NBC’s Today Show, Good Morning America, and placements in Vogue Japan and so much more. Their designs have also been exhibited at fashion weeks all over the world, including New York Fashion Week, Arise Magazine Fashion Week, Glitz Africa Fashion week in Ghana, Caribbean International Fashion Week, Fashion week in Los Angeles and their talent has been recognized on a wide array of media platforms in New York and beyond
Immediately I saw this image on IG I wanted both dresses. The plunging neckline, the maxi length and the prints make these dresses classic pieces that are so versatile.

I really can't believe that they have beep churning out dope collections from 2010 and it's only now that I am seeing their work. Below are some of their outfits that I loved

I love everything about this whole outfit. The attitude, the styling, the play on proportions and mix of stripes with plaid. No one is messing with this chic.

The play on colours of the stripes is so smart like. 

Grown ass woman sexy!!!!!! The fit of this dress makes it the hit that it is. Effortless transition from work to evening.

Dwomoh-Piper wins. The boots won me over .

That little side cut turns this ankara tee from ordinary to flirty

Who knew you could do this???????? Love love love

looking for inspiration

I miss being immersed in fashion. The other day I went to work dressed as myself rather than the rule following drone that I've become and the common comment i kept getting was how stylish I was ...It made me smile

I thought I would do a specific style post today but I seem to have lost it or something so below are a few looks that I like. This is me showing up even when it's not perfect
