If anyone could have given me this dress ten years ago, i would`nt have ever worn it! As a matter of fact i remember how my mom would take her precious time to custom make for me different type of dresses of which i never really showed interest in wearing. Thinking about it now actually makes me sad… really SAD! I can imagine how disappointed she was in me… The bitter part about it is that she actually gave up on sewing anything for me again, except my school uniform that is.. 🙂
But all of this has changed now. It has come to my attention that as the years have passed by, so has my style, my passion and love for fashion evolved. The way i view things now, be it for example an ankara piece, is far different than the way i did ten years ago. And that my friends is what i define as ,,Growth”. Growth in a sense of seeing things in a different perspective.
I find joy in learning new things and sewing has been lately on the very top of my list. To be honest i really regret why i never used that free opportunity given to me that i had while i was back at home… considering the fact that mommy bear is an expert in sewing! Thinking about it brings nothing but chills down my throat. But hey!! It`s never too late to learn, right?
Well this is one of the pieces that mom designed and made for me while we were in Ghana for vacation. That alone makes this dress so special because of the hard work, time and dedication she put into it and i have to admit that it brings back so many sweet memories. Did i mention that the vibrant and colurful print on it brightens up my day every single time i have this dress on??
A beautiful Sunday to all of you and a big thank you for taking your time to stop by. You are all appreciated!!!
