Zambian Fashion Week ~ Part 1

Is it just me or has this year just woozed by in a flash?  The days just seem to be flying past at an incredible pace and it actually makes me a little uncomfortable because I don't want time to pass me by without having a chance to really enjoy it.

Two weeks ago I attended the Zambian Fashion Week and I promise I meant to share the pictures earlier than this but like I said time has not been waiting around for anybody lately, not even me! I took over 400 pictures and it was such a pain to try and decide what to show you because obviously I don't want to upload 400 pictures, so in the end I settled  for about 20 or 30 pictures which I will share in two parts.

There is some amazing talent in Zambia and some of the outfits literally made gasp out loud! I love how African fabric is being represented in a modern way, I'm proudly African but I always dreaded having to wear a chitenge outfit as I felt it was not flattering to me and made me feel so grown up but now the fabric is being played with and the results are incredible.

 Enough talking! Enjoy the pictures!

NOTE: Kindly credit all pictures to Joan Kats should you wish to use them.

MandaHill Night of Fashion

Is it too late to say happy November? I hope not!

I love new months as it is always a chance to start afresh and so far I can say November has been fabulous. This past weekend I was running from one fashion show to another as it was the Zambian Fashion Week and I must say I felt every bit the fashionista with all the glam around me..lol..

My first event was The Mandahill Night of Fashion on Friday. I happened to see it posted on facebook and they had only a few tickets to give out if you called, I took a chance and called and got a ticket and convinced most of my friends to call too. One of my bestfriend's Eta got a ticket too and I wouldn't have spent such a night with anyone better:)

We were given the top notch VIP treatment with free food and free wine and entertainment by one of the best violinists in the country, Caitlin. I've wanted to watch her shows for years so this was a real treat! She is so talented and such a lovely person!


 I wore a scarf print bodycon dress I got in a sale in Mr. Price, I love bodycon dresses as they give my body such a nice shape (apart from the tummy flab..lol..) and I am with the whole print revolution at the moment!

Unfortunately I left my cannon behind and had to use my iPhone so the pictures are not that great but hope you have fun flicking through:)

By the way I didn't get a chance to tell you but I went short with my hair and I absolutely love how bold and sexy it makes me feel. It's also perfect as it's summer here and super hot. What do you think?
