Inherited

As with most of my native clothes, i inherited..cough *borrowed but never returned* this outfit from my sweet mom. I rarely dress up in the outfits completely wearing the top and bottom together unless there is a special event. Again i like borrowing *cough stealing* native pieces from my mom because there's so much history behind them. That and because that's the cheapest way for me to get my hands on native clothes being that i cannot sew yet. I plan to learn to sew basic patterns before this year is over.

Wow, I *love* that top! I actually would have guessed Anthropologie or Free People if I hadn't seen your comment about it being a native top. What is the material made from? It is beautiful in and of itself and looks fabulous on you.

Love it! The jacket complements the retro feel of the vintage yam-print w/ geometric sleeves. Reminds me of when I started to wear the tops of my kaba w/o the slit (skirt)to school in the US and my father got so upset.
