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.
