The Kitchen Party...

Sooo without further-a-do here are my Kitchen Party pictures...in my defense I will say the makeup looked better in person LOL...

My Kitchen party was on the 7th of April, a week from the wedding, my colours were Emerald green which is the colour of the year and orange...after an agonizing search and me and my mom having different ideas on the "sare", I finally agreed to just let it go and let mama pick one and she found the perfect perfect wax that had all my colours, now I just had to find the perfect one for me and most importantly find someone to make my dress. Now I wanted a very dramatic vava-voom dress that would flatter my body, dramatic enough and still respectful enough not to offend my mother cause it was her day really...

Making our entrance with my Matron/BFF/Mentor Bahati who is dressed by Sassy Tailors, Africana Sinza


So one day I get this light bulb moment and I say why not ask Mange Kimambi to make my dress, her Bongolicious brand is doing really good and I love the pieces and I like her ''in your face'' attitude LOL...So I sent her an email to ask her if she can make me a dress but it had to be affordable and she emailed me right back saying yes she would love to wowerzzz...so we started brainstorming through watsapp on the designs I was interested in, colours and my measurements...and then we started looking for the kitenge till we found this one only one piece left! anyways from that point I just had to wait till she came to Dar to see it and then she gave it to me...and when I say she gave it to me, I don't mean hand it over and I paid no! I mean She actually gave this dress to me as a gift, FREE!! I was blown! the minute I tried this dress I was in love wow!

Ulipendeza sana Anitha. Hongera sana mamii, wish u a happy marriage! Kwa wapenzi wa blog hii, itapendeza tusipokosoa make up yake. Ilikuwa siku yake, imeshapita and all in all Anitha was happy!

anita i dont know whether it was too much lighting but the make up was a bit to light for you, otherwise all looks great.

Ni mimi mwenyewe mwala said...

Ulipendezaje mamito??? Mange alikutendea haki kwenye kivazi kwakweli, ukichanganya na shape yako ndo usiseme, yaani ulipendeza sana, hata nywele zilibanwa vizuri sana ila kwenye make up alikukosea kidogo ukilinganisha na rangi yako otherwise ulipendeza sana sana.
