I had a roar’in good time putting together this mix and match with some wonderful designs from the generous designers of Masai Mara. Each of these exclusives donates money to help Mama Tunza’s Childrens Home in Kenya.
To begin my “big cat” theme, is this bold tone-on-tone lion-printed Le Lion dress from Miss Darcy. It is great as a casual mini-dress, or for layering, like I did over Nieva Kumasi’s jeans with cheetah inserts. Also making me purr, and continuing with my theme, is the Shambala Necklace, also in Cheetah, and Leo Casandra bag with its fun iPhone in one pocket, and camera in the other.
Let’s talk hair. If we are focused on cats, well one must have a tail, so I chose this long mesh Britney braid from EMO-tions. One thing I have to say about EMO-tions, particularly some of their newer hairs out…they have some of the most creative hairbases. The Britney hairbase has swept bangs tucked behind the right ear, hints at a part, then is pulled up and back, on the left side, perfect for a hair clip, like the new group gift hair brooch from Vendome and some pretty dangle earrings from the Kenya Elephants in Love set for Masai Mara.
And of course, a Masai Mara post wouldn’t be complete without a Thank You Song from the children of Mama Tunza’s you are all helping with your generous support.
