Carina: The Lady Biba ‘Carina’ is one of my favourite dresses in my wardrobe. I bought it in an instagram sale couple of months back, but struggled a little (more like a LOT) with the fit mainly because my lower half and upper half vary drastically! Naturally, I had to have alterations done (thanks to Alterations on Awolowo Road) now my dress is a perfect fit… a second skin if you like.
Initially, I was very skeptical about the Carina. The picture I’d seen on the website featured a poorly finished hemline and although I LOVED the dress, I wasn’t about to throw my money into the pocket of any designer that didn’t pay attention to a clean finish. But then as I went through the Lady Biba instagram account, I noticed that unlike the pictures on the website, the dress actually looked well made. As you all know, I’m a fan of Nigerian Belle and even she vouched for Lady Biba, so I took the plunge and bought the dress. Needless to say, I think this dress is amazing and Lady Biba will definitely be hearing from me again soon.
Vintage: Sumbo’s dress on the other hand is a vintage extraordinaire! This blue number was spotted in her Aunt’s closet and needless to say, it’s Sumbo’s now. A truly timeless piece the colour pops just as much as it did back in the day, but the material has a fragile stretch to it, demanding care when washing.
Say hello to our Sunday OOTD! Plum and Vintage Sapphire…….
Ps: Forgive the quality of the pictures. They were taken with my phone.
Pps: Do you see my sexy eyes in picture number 2? LOL The sun was glaring, I couldn’t help myself.
