          Beautiful dress, so many compliments!

          I wore this to a friends wedding and I received so many compliments. It irons well, the material is lovely heavy cotton and the zipped slit maintains your modesty! Looking for a skirt and top set next x

          This dress is pure poetry! It speaks to the "queen" inside every melanated woman! The material is substantial and authentic. The colors are vivid, stunning and bold. I will wear this dress to church; to fancy dinners with my husband and to the grocery store because this dress is everything!

          Nubian Decadence

          I adore the bold and vibrant colors! This dress evokes a luxuriance you can't help but feel as soon as you slip this on. I am tall (about 5'll) and I love that I can comfortably wear heels without worrying whether my hem is too high. I believe this dress could bespeak and inspire confidence in whoever wears it!
