Who watched the Miss Universe yesterday? First and foremost let me congratulate Iris Mittenaere from France for the big win last night. Canada wasn’t bad either. Our candidate was able to make it to the top 10 so that was very good as well.
Miss Universe gowns are to die for. The only down part about gowns like the ones seen on the competition is finding a place to wear them. Can we wear a gown like those ones twice? That will always be a question on my mind. Perhaps at a wedding or so but I picture people that have those super high end dresses perhaps don’t wear them often.
Lets talk about my African Couture dress, sorry ladies you will not be able to find this dress. Yes it was custom made for me just like many items I own in my closet. I want to thank my amazing African friend for sending me this beautiful dress. She lovingly told the tailor to make it long and fitted in the waist just the way I like it.
I will be wearing this dress to weddings and perhaps some galas.
Where can you find African prints fabrics? Well depending on where you live African prints are sold sometimes in African beauty hair supply stores. In downtown Toronto for example people can buy the African prints and take it to a tailor to custom make into something that expresses their style. The beauty of custom designing your own dress is that it becomes your own unique creation and that only you have it. I will be tagging some online stores on my Instagram where you can purchase African prints.
