BAM Dance Africa Cool Finds

This year at Dance Africa, I found so many great things I want to share with you guys. As you know, Dance Africa is an annual event that happens every memorial weekend at BAM where Brooklyn locals celebrate Africa in all its glory through performances, amazing food and vendors. This year I bought so much cool stuff that I’m so excited about:

 Tribal Print Dress

Besides the beautiful tribal print, what I love about this dress is the pockets and the racer back. It’s such a well made dress and I never want to take it off. Price: $20

Earrings 

I’ve wanted Fulani earrings since 2011. Finally I found these rare finds from the country of Mali and put them on as soon as I bought them. They’re a dream come true. Price: $20

Shea Butter & Black Soap

These two necessities speak for itself. I haven’t used Shea Butter in my hair since 2014, so this is a real treat and my hair loves it. As for the black soap, I am hoping it performs miracles on my dark spots. ($3-$5)Black Soap

My sneakers finally came! I ordered these bad boys before going to South Africa in hopes that they would arrive in time for my trip. Of course they didn’t but I can’t wait to wear them this summer. They are Authentic Nike Roshe Sneakers with Dogon Mudcloth customized by Tawia Designs. I noticed Nike came out with some customized black history sneakers for Black History Month and while debating if I should get those, I came across these beautiful things. What I love is that the print comes from Ghana. A percentage of every sneaker purchased is given back to Growing Power Inc. which helps feed neighbors, nurture youth, and support sustainable communities.
