Hey guys! How’s everyone?
Today I’m doing a fun look featuring a full flare skirt. You see, full skirts are indeed versatile when it comes to styling. Usually, I’d wear them with heeled court shoes or heeled sandals, but for a playful, fun, casual look, I decided to wear sneakers! Now I’d have gone for a white pair of sneaks, but your girl wanted to do different.

Story time: Now this full skirt you see here was originally a dress handed down to me by one of my aunts sometime in 2015. And you wouldn’t believe that I was grumbling in my mind like “A whole me Dafashionfreak, you’re giving me old clothes you don’t want. What do I look like?” Lol I would have preferred cash though, don’t judge. Anyways, to avoid long stories (which includes dumping it in one Ghana-must-go bag and then planning to take the dress to some welfare unit) I then realized I could actually wear the dress- even if just once so as to please her. I took the dress to a dry cleaner and I couldn’t recognize the dress by the time it was ironed. You see, that’s one thing with giving out your used clothing. Packaging and presentation matters. I definitely would have had a different perception or reaction if I received the dress after it came back from the dry cleaner. But then, diamonds don’t look attractive in the ground now, do they?
However, rather than the dress itself, I was more into the fabric. I liked it so much and felt a dress wasn’t versatile enough to style. So I decided to turn it into a skirt. And I tell you, after the transformation, I’ve been wearing this full skirt a lot more often and with almost any kind of top. And dear aunt was really pleased at the end of the day. Thank you aunty… :D

So back to styling, I went for a funky banana print tee to pair the skirt and a pair of Adidas climacool sneakers. Grabbed my Ankara tote bag to accessorize and finished up with this cute pair of transparent granny glasses I never thought would look good on me.
