I got this insanely beautiful dress at work the other day, it's by a brand called
Lemlem which gets their handwoven fabrics from Ethiopia. The brand was started in 2007 by native model Liya Kebede as a way to stimulate their local economy and preserve the art of traditional weaving. On the website you can find amazing clothing, accessories and home goods all in beautiful colors and summery silhouettes. Wearing this dress to work yesterday and then out at night, the compliments were endless. I didn't think such a wide variety of people would be so turned on by the style of this dress, but it really is a no brainer. The orange alone on this baby is so striking and will no doubt make you stand out.
