 Remember that time I declared that I’m on a mission to get 100 dresses? Well this little number reminded me why I was so keen to fill up my closet with dresses! I love, love, love the crocheted details on the side and, considering I’ve always been one to focus on accentuating your curves, the position of this detail hits each spot perfectly. 

Wore it to the annual Akili Dada conference where I was part of four women on a panel where we discussed our take on leadership and innovation. Despite being rather terrified at first, the experience was fantastic and I instantly fell in love with their vision, their programme and the sweet girls I got the chance to personally speak to. 

And in non fashion-related news, I just recently watched the HBO documentary on Westgate and more than ever, I am convinced of how important it is to do good and give back whenever you can. There might be evil people in the world ready to inflict pain on others, but there’s also loads of wonderful, kind hearted folks willing to bring happiness to others through acts of love and kindness. We just have to choose to be part of that movement. 

If you’ve been trying to figure out how to give back, I’d suggest joining the Akili Dada programme. And for those of you who are already part of a charity or programme that you really believe in, please share the name of the organisation in the comments below! Hopefully we can each find a cause we believe in and start giving back in our own small ways. 

Lots and lots of love.

    Gorgeous look Sharon… My organisation-> El-Sistema Kenya https://www.facebook.com/ElSistemaKenya … The program uses music as a tool for social change in the Kawangware area and Im a violin tutor there (we teach primary school kids). 🙂 This program started in Venezuela and has quickly spread all over the world. The point is to use/empower people in a particular community to create an impact and change in their community.
    All the best with Akili Dada. 🙂

      • Mumbi says:

        Hi Betty, thanks. Well, in this particular organisation we don’t teach adults just children.

        But if you want violin classes there’s a great school i can refer you to. The Kenya Conservatoire of Music. the teachers are A-grade so you’ll be sure to get your money’s worth. http://www.conservatoire.co.ke/

    Lovely dress Sharon.
    I love children so I pursue causes and initiatives that involve children’s welfare.
    On my birthday, I visit any children s home. I celebrate with them-cake, candles and gifts.
    A friend of mine runs an NGO that provides for motherless children an education; I volunteer my time and resources throughout the year.
    So anything that caters for children-I stick my head into it gladly and happily.
    Its encouraging that you and others are going beyond to reach out.:)

    Once again glam outfit too casual a bag. Black shoes and structured black tote would have worked just fine. The brown shoes and bag would have gone well with a yellow, orange or green outfit.

  18. Maya says:

    Popular UK blogger and vlogger Shirley B.Eniang has some great lookbooks on her YouTube channel that includes what bags to carry with which outfits do check her out if you can.

    I love love love the crochet details on the dress and it looks amazing on you! The shoes are also cute though I wouldn’t pair them with this dress.
    I’m not a part of any organization at the moment but I do try to give back when I can. I love volunteering at children’s homes…new life to be exact. I love children and it’s always a great experience.

    I am waiting to watch that documentary even though I am Nigeria. A kenyan boyfriend and my increased ability to speak swahili has made me realize that there is space for one other cool country in Africa: Kenya, lol! And dresses? always the way to go! http://www.ramblingsandsnaps.com

  21. doris kisahi says:

    nice dress. i tend to agree that you may need to invest more in variety of bags . the shoes also dint do enough justice to the dress

    This dress is everything Love it & love the shoes as well!

  28. Mkhana says:

    Love the dress. I have a similar one but mine is mostly white with black side paneling. It gives me curves for days…which I adore! Not a huge fan of the shoes and bag combo either BUT, girl, you rock it! As for NGOs, I work in public health – focus on Maternal and Child Health and I am currently working for JSI Inc in Ethiopia on some interesting things programwise. You are absolutely right, we ought to all give back whenever we can.
