It’s been a minute! Last weekend, I had to attend a Gospel album launch which was like a dinner event-red carpet and stuff.
If you know me too well, you would know I love to patronize #madeinnigeria brands. Some of the designers do an amazing job but they aren’t well known by the public. Touch By-Asoebigirl is a Nigerian womenswear brand that focuses on making unique, stylish outfits for women.
For the woman whose style is about class, sophistication & personality and of course- budget, Touch By Asoebi Girl is your one true choice. I can say that I confidently used one stone to kill two-beasts (literally, just keep reading to know how..lol)
Flashback to a week before the event, I had zero idea on what to wear, I’m not a fan of “ready-made” Balogun wears trust me, you may find someone else wearing you dress-nobody steals my show!
The creative director was away to South Africa which got me panicking! I tried a few designers but they didn’t really satisfy me. I had to beckon on her because I scrolled through her IG page and loved what I saw.
I wanted a simple but very sophisticated look but with a budget. My budget was from NGN 10,000- NGN 12,000. I also wanted the velvet and organza fabric together. How it will work out well was clearly not my business.
Right there in South Africa, she sent me three different sketches- I picked one and fell absolutely in love with it. Fast forward three days to the event, my dress was ready! How I love my life-planned and working out well! I literally STOLE the event!
Did I mention I accessorized my dress with an old perfume bottle? Yes, seriously!
I’m planning to buy a bigger perfume bottle for future purposes *winks* and I also plan to keep more perfume bottles for other DIY purposes.
I lodged at the Intercontinental Hotel, Lagos. That’s another story for another day! If you are familiar with the three buildings-it’s the 1004 storey buildings that are mainly for apartments. Islanders would know this place!
The pictures didn’t do justice to this dress but I promise to re-rock this piece and get a clearer picture plus angle!
