RED DETAILS


Hello darlings.
Hope you're having a great weekend so far.
I got the material of this dress a while ago. I didnt plan to buy anyfin that day but I immediately fell in love with d fabric. Its actually a gold organza material with red velvet designs. Love the color, Love the designs on it, love the feel too! I bought 2 yards of it for just N500 dats a lil less than 2 pounds n a lil more than 3 dollars! #Score#!
I originally wntd to make a peplum top with it cos I tot 2 yards wud be too small for a dress but at 5 2", not withstanding the extra flesh here n there, I manage to wear a size 10 dress n could make a dress with just 2 yards of material and still had extra pieces left . 'smh'




The dress does alotta shouting on its own, so I decided to wear black to tone it down a lil.
I got very nice compliments in church today about my dress. My dad even took some of my pictures this morning! lol


 What are your thoughts on the look?
