Dedo Azu Official Part 2
Did you see the absolute awesomeness that was the Dedo Azu Official post? How could we not ask for more! And lucky for us, Dedo felt so inspired that she couldn’t resist making us more outfits to showcase her talents. So without further ado, we’re back with more goodies to show you from our girl Dedo Azu! She out did herself with her mix of prints and structured pieces so feast your eyes on these beautiful creations.
It was love at first sight when I first laid eyes on this beautiful lavender print dress. Not only is the print to die for but the midi length of the dress made me feel like royalty….”All Hail the Queen!” LOL
Once again, using my measurements, Dedo Azu crafted this dress which fit me to a “T”.
I went for minimal accessories because I wanted this showstopping dress to be centre stage!
When I saw this gorgeous blue dress that Angela Simmons wore at a fashion show last year I immediately fell in love. I even went so far as to take a screen shot of the dress on my phone thinking that one day I might find a dress similar to hers or simply have it made. Well my wish came true! When designer Dedo Azu asked me what she might make for me, I immediately sent her the picture of the dress (by email and by text LMAO just to make sure that she got it).
Fast forward to a few months, when I laid eyes on this two piece wonder and tried it on I was impressed, it fit me to a “T” and I loved the print and colourful polka dot material. It’s very different from some of the usual African prints I have seem but it is still very elegant and sophisticated.
Instead of making it a dress as was the original design I sent her, she made a 2 piece which works perfectly for me. I just love how the peplum top fits my waist then flares out.
I kept it simple for this look since the print alone is a work of art! So I chose to pair it with my blush pumps, my favourite pearly necklace, and since the top has a very low cut neckline (as per my request LOL), I decided to wear a nice off white crop top from Addition Elle underneath. And voila, I’m ready to conquer the world.
Mirror mirror on the wall, please send more prints to us all?! We asked, and we received! Now, you’ve all heard about Judy jonesing for jumpers and seen Nancy all over overalls. Gail too has gotten into the mix with her relaxed retro romper. But never have you seen me in a sexy one-piece wonder till now. Presenting the jumper of my life, brought to us, ok me, by Dedo Azu!
This print is all I could have asked for and more. It’s bold and beautiful; doesn’t leave me feeling young and restless and allows me to be in step with the current fashion trends so I don’t get left behind as the world turns and trends change. I mean come on; we only have one life to live. We need to make sure that we have some great fashion pieces that help to make these the best days of our lives!
So, why do I love this jumper? First and foremost, it has been made to measure so it fits my body perfectly! Since it was made for me, I also had a chance to choose the exact style I wanted. I love backless styles, so I chose to have my jumper designed to show-off a lot of skin in back. This is one of the advantages of made to measure clothing and working with Dedo and her team to craft styles that you love and fit your body pefectly.
Given that this jumper is quite figure hugging, it beautifully shows off my small waist and highlights the curves that I have despite my slim frame. The print also helps to give me the illusion of being a bit more voluptuous (ok, I may be reaching with that adjective, but it just has a nice ring to it ;-).
This look has a great summer feel and since it is cotton, your body can still breathe on those sweltering summer days. To wrap up my look, I searched among all my children (that is shoes) for the perfect pair to compliment this look, and just had to go with these dazzling yellow babies. Accessories in check and make up flawless I’m ready to take on a dynasty!
When I tell you that I want Dedo to become my personal designer, I mean it. She consistently comes up with the best and perfectly crafted styles. When I tried on my dress, I immediately started to dance. Ladies, you know you do this too! LOL You know the feeling when you slip on that perfect piece of clothing that seems to have been made just for you! It’s just the best.
Let me tell you what I love about this dress. Obviously, the print is just beautiful. Also, it is a very fitted dress. The material is sturdy yet comfortable. But the best part is that the dress is sewn in such a way that there is room for the derriere! That’s huge (pun totally intended LOL). Since the material doesn’t have much stretch, my booty would end up being squashed… but not here!! I can freely be bootylicious!
