The Return of the Reception Dress

August 21, 2016

One thing that has always bothered me about wedding dresses is the fact that you spend so much money on them and wear them for less than twenty-four hours. I really wanted to sleep in my wedding dress because I couldn’t believe that after months and months of fittings and decisions, this was it!

I made up my mind that I was going to have to wear my reception dress again sometime in the future and I finally got that opportunity this weekend.

The graceful, gorgeous, uber talented Deola Sagoe of House of Deola made me the most beautiful reception dress. I felt like I was walking jewellery on my wedding day!


My dear Aunty Deola turned 50 over the weekend the theme was “Diamonds” -who doesn’t love diamonds? (and of course, I love  a good themed-party so I was super excited to plan my outfit). I remembered the cropped top which she made as part of my reception dress and decided to pair that with a pair of wide-legged pants by Clan; I thought it would be a great way to honour her by wearing one of her pieces to her birthday party.

I had so much fun rocking this outfit and I’m pretty sure I’m going to rock it again sometime soon!
