Happy Wednesday everyone! It’s good to have you all here again! The week has been demanding, but a good demanding that requires all my time and energy, and I have been more than willing to give it!
So, yes! The dress! Ladies, you know how good it feels to be in that perfect dress that sits in all the right places and turns you into a goddess, just like that? Well, I recently found myself in one such dress!! Let me take it back…
If you know anything about me, you know that I have a mild obsession with African print clothing! Yup, all that☝️ fabric is mine! If it’s not a doek (turban) it’s a cute skirt, or high waste pants ( that no longer fit me☹) or a purplum top. I strongly believe that we are African every day, and we should embrace that every day and not just on Africa Day, you know?!
As my love for African print has grown over the years, so have the material gifts. It turns out I am a touch materialistic😂 My friends often give me fabric as gifts and I tend to wrap it around my head until I figure out what I want to do with it!
This was one such gift. The fabric was from one of my students’ mother. I held on to it for almost a year before I found the perfect dress I wanted made! It was quite a long wait but I couldn’t let such a beautiful present with such a beautiful message go to waist on something I didn’t put thought into.
I was so excited when I found the design I wanted and am even more excited that it ended up looking so good on me. My dressmaker and I got into it when at first it looked horrifically big on me and I had no idea how to fix it! I panicked, but luckily, I am no good at seeing how clothes should fit and Nene fixed it in the end! I love the outcome! This. is. The Dress!
Thank you so much for popping in! It’s always a pleasure to have you around🙂 Please join me on Sunday for another restaurant review. That’s right: the Eat Out gang is getting back together this week!! I’ll tell you all about it on Sunday, so come back😘 Have a fabulous week!
