I wanted to cry by the end of the night!! It was my first time wearing this dress, I barely walked around or cam whored, and it decided to get ruined!!! Geez c'mon!! It's freaking Karen Millen dress I'd expect more (it's like my Bebe Upgrade, u know), I have a Cache dress that looks very identical. (Don't ask, while shopping to move to Lagos, I don't know how I bought two very identical dresses). Eitherways this dress was the more expensive one, so I need to find a way to revive it! I actually tried to sell of the Cache twin, but didn't work, so I'm glad to have an extra.
Ejeme (Jini designer from MMR post) suggested I try to shave it with a shaving stick, and after constantly seeing that DSTV style tip where they shave a shredding fuzzy pink sweater with a shaving stick, I was game.
I couldn't breeze through the shaving with the stick, it made it worse, I had to gently go section by section, with my hand inside holding the dress, and shave side to side, to prevent much scuffs or scratches.
The results were quite nice.
(not perfect, you can see scuffs & some lines)
I'll prob try rewearing it somewhere, maybe somewhere dark! or get there when everyone's drunk lol.
I didn't take any pictures when I wore em, but I got this one via bbm/ cell phone :) here's a glimpse of the awesome night. I had a blast, they had an artist perform, tons of food, okay so i dealt with a tiny awkward scene but everything else was freaking awesome lol.
|Sis Sheila, Ejeme, Me, Carmen (lol we were all looking a diff cameras) You can see the gorgeous bag|
Hope everyone's having an awesome week/ weekend. I have about 3-4 events going on tomorrow at the same time, not sure how I'll share myself, but it's great that i get to knock out a bunch of events with one dress and don't appear like "I'm repeating" clothes lol.
