Dressed 30 Ways 30 Days - Day 21 + Giveaway!

What I'm wearing -  Dress  - Sold out  @ Dressed| | Pumps  - Dune  || Necklace - available @ Dressed 

Hello World! How was your weekend?  Mine was a fashion packed weekend. I attended 2 days of the Lagos Fashion and Design week (LFDW) and I must say it was worth every minute. While all the designers had amazing collections the younger designer’s award show gave me a whole new high. This crop of young talents showed so much creativity in their use of unusual mix of fabric, I'm eager to see what they come up with in the future. The beauty of some of the pieces was so overwhelming, I am still  having endless dreams about some pieces I saw lol, so many pieces totally worth coveting. watch out for the post on the event soon.

I’m eager to get back to my regular blogging Moda Operandi, but while I'd love to blog endlessly with no care in the world, The ‘Igboness’  in me reminds me that I have a business to run, lol. You know what they say about word of mouth, so please go on and tell a friend who needs a fab new outfit that we are the ‘go-to’ brand for quality, trendy yet affordable fashion in Lagos. We thrive to keep it classy and exclusive too, because we understand that our clients don't want to get to an event only to discover that there about five other people wearing the same outfit, lol! So keep the orders coming in, let’s sell  this stock out and move on to some serious blogging tinz lol.

For today's outfit, I took the simplistic approach and  kept it quite clean, in my opinion there are times you just allow the elegance of a dress to shine  through by not overwhelming it with accessories.  I love the pleats details and the simple elegance of this dress, though simple, yet could be quite versatile depending on how you style it .


What are the interesting ways you would style this dress? Share the stylish things you would do with this dress in the comment box for a chance to win a lovely set of earrings from us.

  1. I just went through all you collections and I would say they are fab, am an aspiring female cloth designer as well. I love your blog keep up the good work.

  2. That's a lovely dress.

  3. Dress is very lovely and i must say quickly that i imagined myself in it already at 3 diffrent places. I can were this to work, to the church and of course to a wedding reception.

    To work i will like to keep it simple but very elegant-: The dress will be paired with elegant navy blue - black pumps(4-5 inches high), simple studded pearls(I got many of those), and a pearl necklace to go. I will like to keep the makeup minimal.

    To chuch- I will pair this dress with lovely Red high heels, a white hat(with style) and a simple white clutch bag to go with my hat. Make-up will be minimal, but my lips will be in Red(yes a sweet red colour to go with my shoes). I will still stick to the pearl earrings and bold statement pearl neck piece.

    To a wedding i will like to pair this with yellow high heeled pumps and bold accessories to go(in yellow gold- just like the color of the one worn in the pix above.

    The dress is a sure must have.

  4. very cute dress.
    maybe wear a blue jacket over it with a really beautiful black high heel shoe.

  5. Love the vintage feel the dress has.

    I would personally cinch the waist with a tiny belt.

    Wear a white or red button down sweater and put a tiny belt over it with killer pumps.

    Wear as it is but with a gorgeous vintage brooch and a hair fascinator to church to give me that breakfast at tiffany's look.

    The dress is definitely a chic & classy number. Love how you styled it.
