This outfit was a collage of many different cultural and fashion influences. Its variating aspects spoke many style languages. A kind of high fashion/street style look if you will. A little bit of African & Indian influence, mixed with hints of bohemian, tribal, rocker and Aztec style elements. “The “K” tribe” in which I’m referring to in my title, stands for the beginning of the birth of my child and future children. My husband’s name begins with a K, so my children’s name will follow with the same letter. I’m not planning on creating a football team, but you know, maybe 1 or 2 more possibly in the future. With little ones in lieu, my husband and myself, the “K” tribe will be born. For better reference, I’ll call it a mini-tribe.😊
This tunic is actuallly one of my husband’s favorite pieces in my wardrobe. I purchased it a while ago and since then, I’ve worn it quite a bit. Probably going to have to retire this for a little while until after the baby, so I figured I’d photograph in it at least once. My plan was to try and pull it off as a dress, however upon discovering the lifting power of a pregnant belly and how it can adjust the fit, shape and rise of a garment, I quickly opted to pair it with my black liquid leggings. This brought in a slight rocker vibe to the look, which I hadn’t planned on it being. However, I feel that the different texture added another unique style point to the outfit.
My jewelry and accessories toppled over with distinctive style characteristics, that made statements all on their own. I fell in love with this beaded, cowrie shell necklace after seeing one being worn on one of the actors on the tv sitcom, Empire. After seeing hers, I was on the hunt for one exactly like it. I lucked up and found a designer who’s specialty is crochet. I fell in love with all of her cowrie shell neckwear and decided that this particular one had to come home with me first. My fringe, peep toe booties played well with my favorite fringe clutch and together they gave my look fluidity and movement. What do you guys think about the look?

Style Tip of the Day
When creating an outfit, most of the time we try and stick with the same style to complete our looks. Nothing is wrong with this. However, style is subjective and doesn’t always have to be what you think people expect. The beauty of it, is that creativity is limitless. Make it fun! Play around with different or similar style choices by mixing them together to create a look of colliding cultural or style influences.
