“Whoa, that’s heavy!” – my first thought when I received the package. This dress is completely covered in sequins, all-over and multi-layered. If I had to guess, I’d say it probably weighs about 4 kg.
When I first saw the dress in a preview from → Felicity Hayward, I knew I’d do anything to put my hands on it. But it wasn’t available yet and so I spent some time waiting until it finally went online – but my size was sold out. For about five days, I updated the page probably every hour (now that I read it, I sound pretty crazy!) until I finally got it late at night. Just to see it available in the ASOS Curve section (and available in all sizes without any problems) on the same day I finally received it. Talk about timing, huh?
Since this dress is already a huge show-stealer, I went for classic black heels and not many accessories. I decided to create a lilac and purple make-up with falsies just to bring in some color and ended up adding even more color (blocking) with my chartreuse-colored clutch. A bit more interesting than just sticking to the common black stuff – you know, everyone can do that, so why not stand out and be special? ;)
