Oh, great looks! That's a beautiful dress. I love African prints, I got lots of fabrics in uganda that I still haven't figured out what to do with.

Thanks Zanah ! That's very nice of you!

Thanks Prêt! I couldn't help doing a little shopping even on holidays! The materials were so incredible, it was hard to choose!

S: Thanks! I know! If there's one thing that changes in the way I dress come Spring/Summer is the inclusion of prints.

Thanks Garderoben! I've had the chance to meet amazingly talented designers and tailors in Africa so I would just draw and explain them what I wanted with the materials and they would achieve it. I also used some for the house: curtains, sofa cover...

Thanks If Jane ! I appreciate it a lot!
