Christie Brown is a brand founded by Ghanaian designer Aisha Obuobi and they've become known for cutting-edge fashion with an African twist. I've wanted a Christie Brown necklace for a few years now and I was finally able to get my hands on one over the summer. However, this gorgeous necklace stayed in my closet for months because I had no idea how to style it....
My friend C gave me a last-minute invitation to her friend's fashion show in downtown Atlanta and I hurriedly threw on the necklace in an attempt to jazz up the most boring outfit in the world. Loads of people stopped me to ask where it was from so it can't have looked that bad. Even my cousin, who hated this necklace when I first bought it, conceded that it was "quite cool".
|Necklace- Christie Brown|
Clutch- Ted Baker
Wedge booties- New Look
Jeans- can't remember....
The multi-strand necklace is super long (almost knee-length) and each strand is made from a patterned Ghanaian cloth. I absolutely adore it and I'm looking forward to styling it in different ways. Do check out the Christie Brown website as they have some fantastic clothes and accessories. Their new A/W 2012 collection is a particular favourite.
So what do you think? Yay or nay?
Until next time,
