Hope everyone is having a good weekend? I am having a really busy one and definitely not looking forward to an even busier weekend ahead.
Moving on, remember this dress I styled as a top? Maybe not, because it was styled in my second post on this blog, but here is a link back. Which look do you guys prefer? Worn as a dress or worn as a top? I love it both ways, but this dress is now a tad bit small for me so it is shorter than when I bought it two years ago.
I love the fact that the dress has an African touch to it. The lacey part on top reminds me of the aso ebi fabrics and traditional attire we wear back at home in Nigeria. What I find even more stunning as the little details on this dress.
If you look closely, you see that the sleeves are see through, so your skin shows and to me this is a little sexier. The bottom part of the dress is also made in a different fabric and style. But all these little additions to the dress come together nicely. I think this dress is flattering and really versatile.
I would style this dress as it is to a wedding, or style it a little more differently to a birthday party. This dress can also be worn to lunch or dinner with your special person 😉 or friends. To me, it all depends on how you style it. It can be dressed down or up. You can also style the dress with black sandals or gold heels and these should complement the outfit perfectly.
I first wore this dress to my Grandmas 75th birthday lunch.
