Dressing Down

Pretty lights!
I wore a very classic beaded dress by Generation
This is my cousin Jimi, he’s very photogenic!
And this is Eliza, Jimi’s little sister. She is equally as stunning!
The weather outside looked unusual

Recently, it was my brother’s birthday! To celebrate, we held a small party with all my cousins, aunts, uncles etc. We arranged a small buffet and dined in the conservatory and dining rooms. It was great seeing my many cousins; family is important to me and I value our usual congregations. And don’t you think my cousins are so photogenic? When I was there age I swanned around with mismatched fluorescent clothing and a curly afro!

I wore a traditional beaded white dress from Generation’s Classic range, I don’ think anything beats a simple traditional outfit. I adore dressing up sometimes, but going back to basics reminds me just how much I love dressing down too. I have been recently perusing Khaadi’s online lookbook, the clothing is to die for, I really hope to stock up on more Khaadi garments over the summer when I move back to Dubai.

Whilst I’ve been swamped under work, work and more work; everyone else around me has been out and about. My brother has been invited to many fashion shows up and down the country, whilst close family friends were invited to Asiana’s recent catwalk. I can not wait until all this work is done and dusted for good,  I yearn to be at glamorous fashion shows as opposed to working all day and night.

Love from,

Miss Iffa

    You look beautiful. I am partial towards white dresses myself. It suits you better though, I must say. And black and white photography. Sigh. Lovely snaps.

    The photographs in this post are wonderful! Obviously good looks must run in your family! Your cousins are absolutely adorable; I can only wish I was so photogenic at that age. Your dress looks as if it was made for you, and I adore the beaded embellishments. They add the perfect finishing touch to this outfit! There is never a moment when you don't look gorgeous; something which I am extremely envious of! I always eagerly await and look forward to seeing your latest posts xxx
