I guess I get to be special and I get to be celebrated twice…I am such a brat!!! Actually, the only reason why I am getting a second engagement party is for the pure fact that I couldn’t celebrate with all my sisters by my side this summer…so my momma took it upon herself to do another one for me..an all girls party for my sisters, our close friends and I. It was this past weekend and omg I had loads and loads of fun. The DJ was the bomb! She was on cue and her music choice were great; had me dancing all night. My friends on I were on the dance floor the whole time. Anyway, back to the point of this blog…I finally got the chance to wear a dress I owned for a while but never had the chance or occasion to put it.
At the party, everyone asked me if the dress was traditional…but this is how it goes: this dress is a twist on what’s usually traditional for us. We wear head to toe embroidered tunic and let me tell you that they are quite heavy. So this dress captures the essence of the embroidered element of our culture. I sincerely felt happy in it and just super me. It’s colorful, it’s pretty, it’s feminine and it’s happy! It’s one darn happy dress ❤
So here it is:
Sorry for the blurry pics…I was way to excited in this number and my sister gave up on me!! x)
I got this dress for my birthday and I was so ecstatic to get it and add this in my collection as it is an exquisite piece…so rich in heritage and culture yet so modern and chic.
Hope you guys enjoyed this look as much as I did!!
