Happy Wednesday! This post is probably long overdue but here we are, finally. It is never too late, right? When my friend Elsie of GlamourVille Fashion Empire suggested this outfit I was ish ish, Well, the outfit is exactly what I wanted, African with a touch of modern, simple yet elegant! But, I am not used to showing skin;
my legs, arms and back not counting. My belly is allowed to pop out only in a swimsuit! So how was I going to rock it? I thought about this outfit and how gorge it looked and a few days to the event I made up my mind to have it made. I am always asking people to leave their nests and explore new ideas and take risks yet I am still in that conservative cocoon. What is style if you do not go beyond what is normal anyway?! I definitely wore it.
D-day and my Uber got stuck in traffic. I had to walk to the it in town. The stares made me feel out of place, which I was but I kept my head high without a care and enjoyed my minutes of fame on the streets. you know that attitude “I look good and I know it, that’s why you are staring” I rocked it big time on this one. After all fashion is about good energy and good feelings, that is what i wore and gave the people. I did bring justice to Coco Chanel’s saying ” A fashion that does not reach the streets is not a fashion” 😉 This is a start, so expect more similar posts going forward.
What I love about this dress is that the lace bit can be removed to leave a crop coat. Versatile just the way i like it. Hit my comment box and let me know what you think of the outfit. Also do not forget to contact Elsie at GlamourVille Fashion Empire for everything fashion.
