When I laid my eyes on this fabric in my mother’s in law fabrics closet it was just love at first sight. It was quite different from my usual African print fabrics design wise. I found this amazing tailor and asked him to make a suit just for moi. I gave him one of my old blazers for inspiration and Voila !

Printed suits were really big last year unfortunately I never had a chance to wear mine. I’ve looked for one but never found anything I liked .When you are plus size you  almost get everything when it’s no longer trendy. Its like these companies don’t follow the trends. The ones that do are quite expensive for my empty wallet. So what do you think ? Are you feeling the printed suit trend ?

    First, I had a good laugh, about the gone with the wind fabulous statement. I absolutely love this trend!!! You look fabulous!!!! I don't really pay attention to trends, I just wear what I want – you being happy and comfortable that is all that matters.
