around the world girl

It may not look like it but this outfit is multicultural, so to speak.

My leopard bodysuit is from H&M, which is based in Sweden, but it was made in Turkey, and purchased in San Francisco.
This bracelet, worn with my Michael Kors watch, is a gift from my boyfriend which he got for me in South Africa.

My Louboutins were made in France, but shipped from Germany to my home in Atlanta.

And last but not least, this purple bracelet (which you can barely see in the other pictures) was made in Italy and purchased by a friend in Romania.

The rest of what I'm wearing was purchased in various US cities and probably made in China. It's all pretty cool when you think about it :)

P.S- I'm in the Street Style section of the March issue of Essence Magazine!!!!!
