FASHION

THE ANKARA BIRTHDAY DRESS

The style pretty

The model pretty

The fabric pretty

Absolutely loved rocking this piece for my birthday shoot last year.

I mean what is there not to like about this piece!

Representing our cultural heritage

Simply speaking elegance

Confidence it exudes

Modesty it bodies.

While making sure modesty wasn’t floored, doubled the lace on the upper chest area so it doesn’t appear too transparent.

Shout out to my sweet sister for sorting this fabric for me.

Here is something which resonates deeply & I thought to share.

Thanks to Collen Hammond, we have this quote from Pope Pius XII: 

“The trend of fashions is not in itself evil. It flows spontaneously from the social nature of man, in accordance with an impulse which inclines him to keep in harmony with his fellow men, and with the way of acting of those amongst whom he lives. God does not ask you to live outside your times, so careless of the exigencies of fashion as to render yourselves ridiculous, by dressing in a way opposed to the common tastes and practices of your 
contemporaries. 

In following fashion, virtue lies in the middle course. What God asks of you is to remember always that fashion is not, and cannot be, the ultimate rule of conduct for you, that beyond fashion and its demands, there are higher and more pressing laws, principles superior to fashion, and unchangeable, which under no circumstances can be sacrificed to the whim of pleasure or fancy, and before which must bow the fleeting omnipotence of the idol of fashion.”

You might want to read the above over again.

You should absolutely rock this piece.

This is now available to order
