AfroChic's shop in Legon opens 6 days a week.
Monday to Saturday. Except on public holidays.
We open at 10 am and stay open till 8 pm.
That's as late as the Accra mall.
That also means that you could close work at 5 pm, stay in crazy Accra traffic for 2 hours and still make it in time to shop before the shop closes.
It's 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!
It means that even when we're closed, we're open.
I love AfroChic!

I love this outfit. Does it come in other colors?Well, the answer is...Absolutely!
AfroChic's most compliment-getting clothes now come available in 2, sometimes 3 colors and you even get a choice of fabrics!
For example, the "Love me or lose me" dress pictured here comes not only in the combination of blue lace and print. Now, you can also get it in gorgeous gold!
In case you haven't noticed, the just released "Frill Seeker" also comes not just in the green bubbles print but also in this lime-green puzzles print pictured here.

In a country where prices of everything from boutique-bought shoes to restaurant food tend to be ridiculously high, one shop is different.
Whether you live in Tema or Tantra-Hill, North Legon or Nima...the delivery charge is the same - 2 cedis.
It's truly refreshing to see a lower delivery charge than one would expect for delivery to your doorstep.
That's why I love AfroChic!

10 days may not seem like much, if you're comparing with Zappos' 365-day return policy.
But if you consider that we're in Ghana,
And you consider again that most shops have a strict, uncompromising - "goods sold out are not returnable" sign right next to the cash register.
And that AfroChic could have done just the same.
That they have a 10-day return policy at such an early stage of the business is pretty freaking awesome and can only be a sign of greater things to come.
The return policy, AfroChic etc.

This post is about why Naa Amerley and Sardia love AfroChic.
These chicks say they have trouble choosing what to buy 'cos well, they want everything.
Amerley describes it this way :
omg! when it comes to afrochic, am like a kid in a candy store , i want everything!!!!
With 500+ clothes that you actually want, all made with African prints, and fresh stuff being added every week, we totally feel your pain.
Your days of going to shops only to look and look and look before you find that one thing hiding under a pile that you actually want are over.
Enjoy this era of big fat headaches!
Do you know anyone in Ghana who has actually bought anything made in Ghana online, paid in cedis, and had it delivered to their doorstep in just 2 days?
Of course you don't.
Well, unless s/he shops at AfroChic.
Now for those of you who don't live in Ghana, you won't understand. But for those of us in Ghana, this is really really awesome. Our days of feeling like second class citizens being blocked from viewing sites like forever21.com are over! Now we too can buy awesome clothes, pay in our own currency, and have it delivered within 2 days whether we're at Lashibi or Ofankor. How so convenient! Makes me want to do a silly dance:)
I love AfroChic for making it happen.
It's the only one in the world.

Don't you feel special when you get compliments?
Compliments are awesome. They make us happy. They bring a little sunshine into our dreary days. Compliments are like spoken hugs. It is medicine and magic for the soul.
That's why I love AfroChic. It's not about style or fashion, or even trends. Just compliments.
It's like making happiness.
It's really quite special.
It's the only one in the world.
