CLOTHES OFF MY RACK;- D.F.L. ANKARA PURSE.

I picked up my phone. "No... This shall not pass me by”, I thought to myself. It’s been weeks and I prayed the designer would still remember me.
"Hello, who is this?" The designer asked.
"Hey Wunmi, this is Onyinye FaFi Obi. Remember Me.??
I called you weeks ago concerning the giveaway I won on Terence's blog." I answered.
"Yeah... I am so sorry. I couldn't find the giveaway booklet, but I sent you a mail confirming your prize." She apologized. "Can you come redeem your prize now?"
"Whoop whoop... Yeah, I can. I live nearby. I will be there in 20minutes". I said in excitement.
"Okay. That's great”, she said and cut the call.
I still find myself intrigued by my new D.F.L. Ankara purse. Surrounded by amazing purses laid out for me to make a choice from her new collection,F.E.W (for every woman), at first glance, I knew I had to pick it.


The Ankara material used created a pattern that skims all through, and when paired with the right outfit
can create a powerful silhouette.I probably pictured myself in the 60's era, styling a woman like Betty Draper and putting a pop of colour with this purse alongside her neutral toned corseted Midi gown.Made simply with Ankara and lined with linen on the inside, I couldn't help but smile at the playful addition of some decorative details by the side, using strips of Ankara to make little corsages with little rhinestones on top and the addition of decorative stones. I love the distinct difference between the graphic pattern on the decorative stones and the main pattern itself.
The purse is a beauty.
