VLISCO X CHIFFON MADE WITH LOVE!

" BE YOURSELF EVERYONE ELSE IS TAKEN"-OSCAR WILDE
Bonjour Everybody. It's Friday once again and the beginning of another weekend. The year is flying so fast for my liking but I think I'll cope. Anyway I'm still on the African print project with pistis. It's a Vlisco fabric with a pinch of  chiffon to set the whole dress on fire! Vlisco originated in Holland and  was founded in 1846 by Pieter Fentener van Vlissingen. Fast forward to the 21st century and staying true to their aim of producing  and selling  hand printed fabrics in- and out of the Netherlands, Vlisco has become the very sweetheart  of every African woman in terms of fabrics and prints. I personally love Vlisco because of the connection I had with it whiles growing up. My mum would rock her Vlisco in stylish kaba and slit, then and now Vlisco stood for affluence and prestige. Mummy would always ask me to learn hard so I could buy her a Vlisco Hollandaise.  She'd cover me with her one yard Vlisco fabric and they always felt comfortable. This Vlisco dress by pistis got me very emotional when I wore it. As usual I'm wearing some amazing Gucci shoes. The yellow ankle strap color blocks and matches my fabric in so many ways. I'm not doing so many accessories today  because of the rich Vlisco and chiffon fabrics. Just my Michael Korrs watch,my bracelet and ear loops. As we'll say in Dutch tot ziens (it's Dutch for bye-bye). Love you all.
