Red Carpet Ready in Black Lace

If your follow me here you will know about FAFA, Festival for African Fashion, an event i went to earlier this year at the Oval.

Many African designers came together to create and showcase their talents and an evening of  fashion and glamour all to promote peace.

This is where i came across and fell in love with a stunning black lace gown worn by one of the models on the catwalk.

It was love at first sight.

Enchanting black vintage lace,high polo neck, long sleeves, mermaid fit and a skirt that attached to the waist with a faux leather belt flowing down backward to a long lush train, it was a sight to behold.

Finally after ogling at all the beautiful creations of our talented designers, i had the privilege to buy it.

Here it is as seen on the catwalk.

I tried it on and it was too long for the petite and 5″ me.

What next does a fashionista do?

I had it shortened and also cut off the long lush train sadly as i couldn’t wear it that long. It came with a beautiful lace detachable skirt that could double as a long shawl…

I decided to make a short shift dress out of that gorgeous lace detachable skirt which i can’t wait to wear soon.

I knew instantly this would be the outfit id wear when i was recently invited for Kenya’s Top100 Red carpet event.

The gown fit like a glove and showed all my  curves in the right places

I wore a plain black V neck, short slip under it so my skin would  peak out of this gorgeous detailed lace at the top and bottom.

I paired it with my most stunning embellished Body stras 120mm Christian Louboutin heels…( Cinderella shoes) to add to the glam.

I left jewelry to minimal because i wanted the lace to be the highlight of the outfit.

To finish up the look i wore my favorite ” Louise” from Louis Vuitton and a bright red lip.

Hope you love it as much as i do.

Black lace in any form is beautiful… wear yours in a short dress or a gown, go ahead and make lace a must in your wardrobe.

Your red carpet is waiting.

Love Sonal xx

Oh so Plum!

Sizzle in one of the seasons hottest colours! The colour is dark and sophisticated. I can’t seem to keep away from this hue.

Three outfits in 4 weeks and still not done! There is no such thing as overloading on plum!

Have you jumped on the coloured jeans band wagon yet? If not get right in.Colored jeans are here to stay! All you have to add is a neutral tee or top and some fabulous heels to pull it off.

I paired a festive plum top with black faux leather leggings and plum spiked heels to match.  On the other hand a little plum dress is so pretty!

The dress was perfect with the plum shoe and  my beloved black ” Louise ” Lv to paint the town( can we say) plum!  Something about this colour just shouts ” festive ” to me.

The holidays are here and plum is perfect!
