Kente. (+ Modcloth Feature, Yay!)

Wednesday, 27 July 2011


Hey my lovelies, hope you're all having a good evening (Morning, or afternoon, wherever you are!)! :)

Just wanted to share my excitement about being featured as Modcloth Blogger of the Moment! Yay! Some of my current favourites have been found through MBM, and I was so flattered when I was approached by them to be featured! They were also kind enough to name a Dress after me! Ahh! So chuffed!

Click Here to read the Feature, and to browse through my Modcloth Faves Click Here!

Also, here's a shot of my Outfit from an ACS Cultural Ball I attended some months back. The photos were just released, and I wanted to show you the dress and clutch I made! The shoes are my beloved Zara Court Shoes! :)

I really want to hop on my sewing machine and sew more after seeing this picture!
Do I feel a DIY post coming up? Hehe! :D ..xo

Dress & Belt : I made
Clutch : I made
Shoes : Zara
Cuff : Jewel Mint
