Dress: Made by Myself | Purse: H&M | Shoes: Primark
Hi all, hope you’re well?
If your calendar’s quite like mine, I’ll assume you already have some wedding dates or wedding related events penned down. Oh my, as excited as I am, my subconscious mind is counting cost LOL! C’mon, let’s be real. If you’re of an African descent, you’ll understand that you’re not only to bear in mind white weddings or registry occasions, but also traditional dos needing traditional garments. I very much love and appreciate culture and all; only issue is that you never get to wear these outfits after the occasion. Speaking of which, I was glad when a friend called sometime last year requesting all my wax print garments, already knowing I would no longer need them. Let’s save some room in that wardrobe.
The dress featured on this post was worn to a traditional wedding late last year. I opted for a non-traditional fabric for versatility purposes. Haven’t had an opportunity to wear it since, but I believe I certainly soon will.
What are my plans for this year you may ask? Undecided. There are a few weddings I’ll have no choice as to what to wear. Others, it’s likely I’ll go for versatility.
What are your plans? Versatility or you don’t mind the one-time garments? Would love to hear your thoughts.
