Hey everyone! How are you all doing? I am sorry I’ve been MIA but I promise to make it up to you.
This post is a bit long because it’s a two-in-one post and we have a lot of catching up to do. Apart from sharing how I styled this beautiful dress, I would also tell briefly, my experience at the Miss Global Nigeria Pageant.
A designer friend of mine, gave me this amazing dress to wear as my corporate/introduction outfit at the pageant and I just knew it would become my favorite dress till I get a better one LOL!
Let me start with the neckline. I love it so much because I don’t have a problem with it falling farther down. It stays right where you want it to and you can move from now till 2016 and not be bothered to adjust it back. It also overlaps a bit in front, giving it a ‘v-effect’.
The color is heavenly and this isn’t a surprise because I love to play with colors but this one can be so annoying because any little stain becomes very obvious and I work in an automobile company where I deal with technicians every minute of the day, so you see my struggle??
I naturally love Lycra materials but this one, I’m not sure what type of Lycra it is because it’s thicker and stretches not too much but well enough to do marvelous things to my body (my tiny body, yeah I know ☺).
I wore my peach colored shoes with it the first time too and I couldn’t wait to re-rock the combination to work this time because the two colors are so much fun to play with.
This is to thank everyone who voted for me at the Miss Global Nigeria 2015 pageant. It was a pleasant experience and I learnt a lot, met different kinds of people and made friends some of which I believe would be around for a long time.
I had to learn my strengths and weaknesses as a woman and a human too both physically and psychologically. I also had to get closer to God because to some people, it wasn’t just a pageant, so we faced a lot of issues spiritually. It’s funny now but I can assure you that it was a scary thing at the time. I found myself constantly begging God to let me walk out of camp as healthy as I was when I walked in.
The Miss Global Nigeria organization was a 100% awesome and our chaperone is a woman who scares and awes me at the same time. The past queens were too kind and in the end I could actually say it was a combination of fun, lessons and good experience.
I came home with the Miss Congeniality sash after I made it to the top ten(10) contestants and as the organization and the Queen told me, this is just the beginning.
So, yeah, this dress was made by a talented young lady I met at the Miss Global Nigeria pageant and guess who just became her biggest customer!. Her label is called ‘be_u_by_lade’ and her wears super affordable. Check her out on Instagram @be_u_by_lade
Have a wonderful week ahead guys!
