Blue aso ebi

Good morning all. No Motivational Monday post in sight today, but a lovely outfit that I really like.
This is a tailor-made dress. I was a bridesmaid for a very good friend back in September, and we were given this material to make anything with it for the second part of the wedding. For those who don’t know, in many weddings where the couple are of African descent, they and the bridal party will often change into an African tailor-made outfit. The material and pattern will depend on where exactly the couple are from.
The bride’s sister got this fabulous material for us straight from Nigeria. This particular lace texture is called aso ebi (asho-eybee). I was inspired to have this design made because of a similar dress that I had seen on ASOS. It sold out before I had the chance to buy it, but I decided that after wearing this dress for my friend’s wedding, I would wear it for another that I was due to attend the month after. I paired it with silver open toe sandals and accessories, because I think that silver complements the vibrant blue.
The tailor added padding inside the dress so that it’s not bodycon (I really can’t stand that material), but elegantly outlines my shape. What do you all think?
