Looking Back, Looking Forward

Classic and versatile. It is no surprise that the tunic has been around forever. It is so versatile, taking you just about anywhere with the right accessories. With its classic shape, varying lengths, and a multitude of prints from which to choose, everyone can find a tunic that is flattering.

Yesterday, I received this tunic from a friend visiting from Ibadan, Nigeria. I absolutely love it! Talk about “global-inspired” huh. To create a work look, the tunic is belted with a woven belt, and paired with black martin trousers. Black cap-toe pumps and a chunky bead necklace add final touches.

    B.licious: Thanks for coming by. The details on that bag make it so chic–the braided handle, the woven drawstring, the gold hardware…

    Anon: It is always good to hear from someone you did not know was watching!

    Seeker: Thanks for stopping by as always. And, don’t mention it at all. Do take care!

    Sara: I’m especially happy to see you (glad you are not sticking to your stay-away-from-economy-of-style plan). I am growing more comfortable using belts. We’ll see where that goes.

    OMG. Even before reading what you wrote, I could tell that top was from my homeland Nigeria! I have a similar one. Actually, I have MANY similar ones. You made it very modern. I like, I like. I just might copy. LOL
