It's all about the African Prom Dress

May 15, 2020

With proms being cancelled all over the world, I really feel for the students who won’t get to have a graduation this year. I do love that lots of them are still dressing up and sharing their outfits on social media wearing top line suits and beautiful prom dresses. As my prom was over 100 years ago, I can’t quite remember much of it except that the dress I wore to it was horrific (thank God there was no Facebook or Instagram then). If I were to go to any type of prom now, I would wear a dress like this. I had this beautiful evening gown made in Sierra Leone at Christmas, and it fits so well because it was made to measure.  I chose a stunning green gara print (as green is my colour) and went for a an off the shoulder cut with a sweetheart neckline and fishtail/mermaid style finish. I love love love love this dress. Where will I wear it? I don’t know. When will I get to wear this? No idea. But the fact that I have this amazing African style print made to measure gown waiting to be worn in my wardrobe, makes me smile. The one thing I will say about this dress is that is motivates me not to put on a single pound because it’s already so snug! No Corona pounds for me then!
