Oh what a beautiful day it is today...must something in the air :D!!! am a very happy woman today...I'm now officially (traditionally) engaged to the man I love and my best friend and and I can't thank God enough and what a wonderful God he is. Yesterday was my mahari day and the reason why I have been having such busy weekends and they are only going to get busier going forward with preparations and all...but am so very excited.
I was such a nervous wreck yesterday that I forgot to take pictures of what I wore on my mahari and my church outfit, hopefully the photographer took some good pictures of my dress that I can share with you. But this outfit is what I wore on Saturday to do last minute shopping with my now fiance :) just my usual weekend uniform of flowy maxi skirts or dresses...the perfect thing to wear in this heat!
|New sandals from Mr. Price...really love these!|
|I'm wearing: Korean Maxi dress ~ Thrifted, Denim Vest ~ Thrifted, Earring ~ Maya Vintage|
This is a dress is a Korean traditional custume (a Hanbok) it's usually more puffier than this and worn with an embroidered small jacket but I took out the lining and netting it had under to make it less puffy and more flowy, and instead of the usual tradional jacket they use on their customes, I wore a denim vest I got from Mwenge buttoned all the way to create a waist line. I got this dress three years ago and have only worn it once since. The silk material is so very soft and luxurious and the floral pattern on it is actually painted on the dress, I love details like that it gives the clothes a more personal feel.
