LOOK BOOK: GOLDEN GLOBES 2017 INSPIRED

Hey Everyone!

I haven’t posted an outfit post since last year and finally got around to shoot this look. So much has happened since my last update over here. 

I don’t even know where to start. From entering the year feeling ill with a terrible stomach bug, having a huge fall out with Justin and then making up again...(how can I not! lol), to my little brother (who is not so "little" anymore) starting high school, to Beyoncé announcing that she is carrying twins! Amongst a whole lot of other occurrences, the golden globes happened too. One of the year’s most glamourous events and because it takes place at the beginning of the year, it sets the tone for red carpet fashion. Please forgive me for only throwing in my two cents about it now, but as mentioned, things started out rough my side. This year yellow popped up a few times and looked absolutely amazing. Actors such as Viola Davis, Reese Witherspoon and Emily Ratajkowski slayed it through and through. Other hot shades was dusty pink and various shades of metallic. I can assure you these are going to remain on trend for the rest of the year. 

ABOUT THIS LOOK

I wore this particular dress to my friend’s wedding in Jan and I didn’t only receive a host of sweet compliments, but also it felt great wearing it. I wore this dress on Christmas a few years ago, but the original design made it super difficult for me to take off every time I wore it. I ended up not wearing it for a long time and decided late December last year that something needs to happen. I headed off to a dress maker in my area and she transformed it into this backless dress for only 70 bucks. Now if there’s two things I can tell you today then it’s … every woman needs something backless in her wardrobe and whatever you’re not wearing should either be thrown out, worn or redesigned to your liking.
