Ethnic Prints

23.7.10

 
dress: zara; boots: f21; bag: gift from Cape Town; necklace: ethnic shop

I got this dress from Zara a couple of months back and I thought it perfect for the great summer days we've been having. Lots of ventilation afforded to me. I love the look of ethnic bags. I think they're a perfect way to incorporate a dash of color and pattern to what could otherwise be a plain outfit.This one was a gift my sister picked up while in Cape Town. I love the fold top and  little compartments inside. Perfect for someone like me who's prone to loosing things in the depths of my bag.
I had a browse on Etsy for similar finds and came up with these ones below.




1. Adama $60.00 USD here
2. Slouch Bag Purse African Ethnic Cotton $44.00 USD here
3. Dazzling Hobo/Shoulder Bag-Vintage $215.00 USD  here
4. Fold Top Shoulder Bag $107.00 USD here

I love tribal prints, but it's best to wear them with something a little less colourful, just like your beautiful Zara dress!

I love that dress. Actually I love anything Zara. There isn't one near me, but they are opening an online store September 2nd! Can't wait! I also love those bags! I have an ethnic print skirt, but I think I want more things of that print, expecially after this post.
