If you have been checking out my instastories you may have seen me making this dress. I purchased the fabric from a warehouse and knew I had to make something over the top. I hardly wear blue but as of late, it has been growing on me. Blue is a mute vibrant color and people say it looks good on me.
I had a wedding coming up and a photo shoot for my article in the San Francisco Chronicle and thought this fabric would be perfect. To be honest, I do not know the names of fabrics that well but this fabric is very stiff so it would be perfect for a large ball gown skirt. It was also a super large piece of the fabric and would enough for a dramatic skirt. I saw the bow details on another dress online and took the idea and made it mine.
For the two events I styled the same blue floral dress two different ways.
The photo shoot look was full of personality and I wore my afro. My messy bun look for the wedding was sleek and great for the Toronto heat. Here are the details on each look:
