CARRIED BY THE DREAMS







Dress: Tailor made in Zambia
Belt: Zara

So by far one of the best things about spending the summer in Zambia this year was to get clothes made there. They have the most wonderful tailors who do a fantastic job of creating whatever it is you would like. I bought this fabric for $3 CDN in the market while I was there, then I had the dress made for $10 CDN. So in total for the beautiful piece I only paid $13!! And it was made to fit. I brought in a few photos of Jackie O and asked for them to make me something similar, and I feel like they did a really wonderful job. I just love vintage-inspired pieces like this, because I feel like they look good on voluptuous bodies... like what I have!!! I'm definitely not your average-sized blogger, and I'm totally ok with that!

I had so many clothes made while I was there, and I'm slowly beginning to wear them all, so as I do I will be sure to do outfit posts on them.

Thanks so much for reading! xo

Wow this is an amazing dress!! I love the print on it and the colour is perfect on you. I can't believe how cheap everything was, that's awesome. My friend is off to spend the next 6 months all over Africa, she's been there once before and absolutely loved it
