#OOTD Lady in Red

Last weekend I attended my cousin’s Kitchen Tea.The dress code was dresses as it was a High Tea.Even though I wasnt better I got,and got ready.
Whenever I attend events I always wear a dress.There is just something magical about putting on a dress.Guess its the whole dressing up as a Princess from our childhood that lingers with us.Yes I do know the popular saying a pair of shoes can change your life BUT a dress does indeed make you feel like a princess.
IMG_20150627_162042More than often I go for Black dresses as one never can actually go wrong with having too many LBDs.So I kinda surprised myself when I bought this rather bright red dress last year.I tend to only buy items on sale.
I bought this lovely red dress in Edgars.Its a simple ,well cut dress.It is from the Penny C range in Edgars which caters for the plus size lady.The fabric is rather thick so it is perfect for the colder weather.The dress came with a detachable gold neck piece,I removed it as it was not in my taste.
My jacket is made from a much lighter fabric.Having a black jacket is key in any wardrobe.The styling of the jacket was not box shaped but that of a waterfall.This jacket can be used in winter and summer.

20150706_192428Last year I came to know of the campaign #WhoMadeMyClothes.It is about raising awareness of the sweat shops where people are paid small amounts of money and work long hours and yet we get charged very high prices.Part of this includes us buying and supporting the local clothing industry.My dress is made in Swaziland which is made in Africa so I am happy but from imported fabric.My jacket on the other hand is from Miladays and is made in South Africa yay with imported fabric.Start looking at your clothing labels and see #WhoMadeMyClothes.
Though I didnt feel well , I looked amazing and felt a million bucks.So yes my dress did make me feel like a Princess.
