  2. I like this post. There were a lot of beautifully dressed ladies. Some others I would just say I didn't favor so much. There was a picture with the caption 'Nebright Couture was in the house', That lady with the black & white clutch looks smashing. She's tastefully dressed in African attire as the event called for but not over done. The look is done right with style, taste and class.
