FAFA 2014 outfit

Happy Madaraka day !


This is the outfit I designed to wear at the Fashion for Peace show.I pretty much incorporated trends that I love and made them work together in one look ; Tulle skirts, double off the shoulder tops and bold lips.






My friend and colleague Wambui also attended the event dressed in a tulle skirt, hey… I guess great minds think alike !

I used 5 meters of a stiffer tulle fabric. I have done tulle skirts before, but they were never puffy enough, the trick here is using a stiffer tulle, sometimes known as stiff net.


2014_4 _ 31I love doing my make-up, I had to share with you my favorite lipstick of the moment, It is called Black cherry by Milani.

There is a beauty wholesale shop on Kimathi street that sells Milani lispticks ! just next to beauty options.



I really loved my outfit and most importantly, I felt comfortable, chic and elegant in it.


My clear clutch from Gojane was definitely one of my best accessories of the night.

I was so busy working that I did not manage to take pictures with my camera .  Asante to my friends from Heenie Photography and eye-con photography for these pictures.

My shoes are from Angelo at the Junction Mall.

Belt is from Woolworths Yaya centre , same one worn here

I bought my fabric from Memsaab fabric shop, Corner plaza Westlands

Have a fab week !
