Africa Africa

Boy did I get a little bit giddy this morning when I quickly snuck a peak on ASOS!  I love prints and African ones are right up my street!  I can't put my finger on it, but there is just something about the boldness of the colours and the patterns that I adore.   Whilst on holiday in Kenya 2 years ago, I went crazy buying lots of Kikoys, all with the most fabulous prints and colours.  Of course, I vowed that I would somehow find a use for them in London... however, unfortunately, they are still carefully folded up in a bag in my loft!  But their time will come one day...

The best thing about the ASOS collection though, is that it is designed, sourced and produced in Africa, which is a rare thing in today's world of fast fashion.  With it having such a great ethos behind the collection, I think I can safely say the above jacket had my name written all over it!  The downside... they only had as size 12 left and I'm keeping everything crossed that this size 12 fits my somewhat large boobs!  It should arrive tomorrow... so positive thin thoughts for me and lets hope the fit model for the design was a larger size 12!
