Jackets are hung on one wall of Bada Seck’s single-room atelier in the Ngor arrondissement of Dakar in Senegal, dresses are arranged alongside another. Half-made garments lie on top of an unused sewing machine and bags of fabric cover the floor.

Happy Monday guys!! I’ve been wanting to get back into the swing of posting my daily looks here so I decided to start posting a weekly recap roundup of my outfits from the week before. If you want links a little faster, I always try to add to my LTK so you can shop directly there, but I’ll also be compiling them here along with sizing info, what I love about it, and any other info to try to answer questions you guys might have. Last week was a fun mix of loungewear and getting dressed up so it’s a true mix of some of my favorite pieces recently, from mini skirts to sweats. 💕

The store’s interiors are characterized by natural materials with fine-grained surfaces such as travertine, textured plaster and oak wood, enhanced by contrasting steel details.

“Investing in our direct retail presence by opening flagships on the world’s most iconic streets is a strategic choice for both our retail expansion and our positioning within the luxury segment.
