I love clothes. I love the kind of energy they can bring out in you and the sort of confidence they instill. The minute I wore this dress, my back was straight, chin was up and chest was out. It almost felt like I had to do my best to be the perfect model or mannequin so that the true beauty of this fuchsia gown could be carried through. I wanted to bring out that gorgeous colour in the dress so I did two things: (1) applied a lipstick in a similar shade to compliment the dress; and (2) added a necklace with teal and gold details so that the contrast could bring out the fuchsia even more.

To all who entered the giveaway, thank you so much for sharing your thoughts on there! With the help of the Wambui Mukenyi team, I was able to randomly choose the winner who'll receive the KES5,000 shopping voucher. CONGRATULATIONS NKIROTE MUTISYA!!! Do email me {thisisess12@gmail.com} so I can provide you with the details. 

I'd love to hear which of the 5 looks I posted this week was your favourite so do leave a comment below letting me know! Hope I'll be seeing you tomorrow at Wambui Mukenyi's shopping party! {see this post for details}

 

Have a beautiful Friday and an amazing weekend. Be safe.

      Yeah the slits on the arms can be very flattering especially to those ladies who are a little self conscious about their arms..
