An Azazie Fairytale

grp-img_1391

What more can we say about Azazie? Considering that we have teamed up with them for a second time attests to the fact that we are big fans. Azazie is your go to dress shop, from bridesmaids dresses to cocktail dresses, especially since each gorgeous gown comes in every size, and a wide array of colors to choose from. It’s simple as 1-2-3: 1. Fall in love with a dress 2. Enter your measurements (and that’s multiple measurement points to ensure perfect fit!) 3. Rock your gorgeous dress. It’ll never be too big, small, short or long!

But don’t take our word for it, judge for yourself! Take a peak at our pictures, but then again you would have to see the dresses in person to truly witness how beautifully crafted they are.

Ethereal. Astonishing. Regal. These are some of the few words that people will use to describe you when they see you in your Azazie dress! Whatever your style, they have it. From floor length to short, conservative to skin-flaunting, there is something for everyone. If you’re like me, your biggest problem will be to choose just one!

nd-img_0167

Tall girls, attention please, attention please. With Azazie, your dresses will never, and I mean never, be too short. I always said that I would never complain that a dress is too long, and this one is veeeery long. I am wearing 4in sandals and there isn’t ever a toe in sight! Could this be the very first time in my life that I get anything hemmed???? Naaaaahhhhh LOL.

This dress is beautifully crafted and no detail is spared. The bodice is perfectly fitted all while taking into account your bust size (so much so that wearing a bra is totally optional – the girls will stay put and no fear of wardrobe malfunctions).

Only warning I have for anyone thinking of getting an Azazie dress: be prepared to dazzle everyone. All eyes WILL be on you so head high, shoulders back and sway them hips!

I really love Azazie for the fact that no matter your size, height or body shape, you can find a beautiful dress in a size you!

This sequin number is making all kinds of noise.  I love sequins so there was no doubt that I had to have this gorgeous dress plus this dress is completely customizable.

gt-img_0516

Simply enter in your measurements, Azazie walks you through this process, and boom your dress is in your hands in a matter of weeks.

gt-img_0562

The fit of the dress is spot on.  The sweetheart neckline is very flattering and the length is perfect as the dress puddles beautifully on the ground.  The dress also comes with built in boning so you really feel held in.

To stylify my look (yes, I know stylify is not a word LOL), I added this black faux fur stole, large silver dangly earrings, and silver pumps.  Just like that, I’m looking like the blak Mae West! LOL

Red carpet ready; that is how I would have to describe this gorgeous gown. Azazie has done it again, creating a beautiful made-to-measure gown that fits my every curve to a T. No need for that trip to the tailor when it comes to an Azazie garment. So long as you know how to use a tape measure, you’re good as gold!

lt-img_1003

I selected this particular piece as I love the silhouette it gives me, highlighting my curves and how it exposes my shoulders. I also love this eye-catching shade of yellow which sets you apart from the crowd. Some people tend to leave those vibrant colours behind with the onset of winter. In my opinion we need them more now than ever to counteract those grey days!

lt-img_1294

My accessories were oh so simple for this look. Big sparkly earrings, a blinged out bracelet  and a couple of bold bobbles for my fingers and I was ready to walk the red carpet at any formal event!

Lately I have been in the mood for the color yellow. From bright lemon to the color of sunshine I’m here for it. This time around I chose a dress in a marigold color.

js-img_0694

This color compliments my skin tone so well that I feel like a ray of sunshine. I chose this dress named the Fatima Bridesmaid which is a sweetheart neckline, A-line cut dress with straps that come close together, and is attached with a button at the back. This dress is floor length and even in heels you cannot see my feet, which elongates my silhouette.

js-img_0899

This dress fits my body very well. I love the fact that there is boning around the boob area, which gives me real support even with my strapless bra. The chiffon material flows beautifully and makes me feel like I’m floating when I walk. I am extremely satisfied with this dress. I can’t wait to wear this gown for a wedding or an elegant gala.

To complete my look, I kept it simple with long gold earrings and a gold bracelet.

With that said, Cinderella ain’t got nothing on me!

Classic film star glamour. This is what came to mind when I saw this beautiful floor length gown from Azazie. Made to measure dresses, with a ton of styles to choose from Azazie is the perfect one-stop-shop for the bridesmaid’s dress that will make everyone take a second look or that dress for a special occasion when you need to bring out your inner Michelle Obama or Juliana Moore.

lt IMG_2914

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I love the glamour of old world Hollywood. The styles, the over-the-top parties and the way women wore clothes that screamed “I belong in pictures”! This gorgeous dress from Azazie says all of this to me. I never knew made to measure could be so good. There’s only one word to describe the fit of this dress: perfect. From the shoulders, to the bust and waist, to the length, Azazie gets the Triple Crown for style, fit and form.

lt IMG_2698

 

I selected this dress not only for it’s classic lines, but also, with my slim silhouette, I wanted something that would highlight the curves that I have and not drown me in fabric. This dress has a fitted bust and hip, while ever so gently falling away just below my hip creating a bit of a fish tale without it being too exaggerated. The touches of rhinestones at the shoulder and waist add that extra bit of glam that I love and really take this dress to the next level. Wile this is a bridesmaid’s dress, I would definitely where this to another formal occasion. Wherever you decide to go in this glamourous little number you will make heads turn.

My curvy ladies, Azazie caters to women of ALL sizes so you can bring this little baby home ifyou too like that Hollywood glam.

Finding the perfect evening dress, especially a bridesmaid dress, as a plus size woman can very often lead to many a shopping trip disaster.  Thankfully, Azazie has really taken the pain out of bridesmaid and evening wear shopping!

gt IMG_1328

Azazie, based out of California, has a wonderful selection of dresses that caters to woment of all shapes and sizes.  How refreshing – a company that understands women come in all sizes and so they make quality, custom clothing for ALL women!  Clothing should fit the woman – said woman should not have to contort herself into a pretzel to wear an item of clothing!

I chose this gorgeous halter style dress in a beautiful shade of red – one of my favourite colours.  The process of ordering the dress was a breeze.  I simply chose the style I wanted, input my measurements (they offer a handy dandy online sizing guide to help you out) and presto, I got my gorgeous gown, which fit perfectly by the way, in about 2 weeks!

I completed my red carpet look with long gold dangly earrings, a gold box clutch, matching gold cuffs and nude pumps.

Well, allow me to describe to you my amazing experience with Azazie. When I first saw them on Instagram I was immediately intrigued. Why you may ask? Because I thought to myself: how genius to have a company that can custom make a dress for you for a wedding, gala or another glamorous event. I was also a bit skeptical though, because the idea of entering your precise measurements on a website and then hopefully getting a perfect custom made dress that fits your body seems a bit too good to be true right?

js IMG_1491

Well dear friends, Azazie took it to another level on me!LOL In order to ensure that you have the right fit for your dress, Azazie asks that you provide your precise measurements from your bust, waist, hips and height, and even ask if you would like the dress made longer to accommodate heels. I had my co-worker help me carefully take my measurements and I was on my way to getting my beautiful custom made creation.

 

As mention previously, Azazie offers a wide range of bridesmaid dresses and elegant gowns, and once you’ve selected your style, you then get to choose the color of your gown as well. Each gown comes in a wide array of colors. Honestly, I spent so much time trying to figure out the color of my gown that the colors seemed to start to blend together!LOL

js IMG_1685

 

I chose this gorgeous fuchsia color heart shape long flowy dress called the Azazie Yazmin. I am a lover of bright and vibrant colors so to have my dress made in the fuchsia color was the perfect combination for me.  If you love your bright colors you will be pleased with the spectrum of colors they have on offer.

When Gail called me to come to her office to get my dress, I ran upstairs to grab it (we work in the same building:-). I literally could not wait until I got home to try on the dress. I was way too eager and thrilled so I tried it on right then and there.  The dress was perfect on me and the color complimented my skin so well. Gail and I had to take pictures to share with our other 2 partners in crime. The smile on my face in the pictures was so huge that I thought that it would be permanently imprinted on my face LOL.

js IMG_1496

Ahh I love this dress so much! All my reservations were put to rest when I tried it on and saw how it fit so perfectly on me.  Let me state, in bullet form, the amazing attributes of this dress:

 

  • First: It was long the way I wanted it to be so that I can wear it with my high heels
  • Second: Since I chose a dress with a heart shaped neckline, there is boning in the neckline to help keep the dress in the right shape
  • Third: There is a built in bra inside the dress with straps and all for added support

 

All these important details make me love this dress so much and appreciate the amazing work of AZAZIE. I can’t wait to wear this dress to a fabulous wedding.

Azazie. Azazie. AZAZIE! That’s all I have to say! Lol I will openly say that I approached this collaboration being a bit of a skeptic. I have seen stores and boutiques that cater to bridesmaid dresses where you really have to wonder if the bride actually likes her friends! LOL The dresses are flimsy and just not cute. Let me tell you that this is NOT the case here! But just to be clear, these go way beyond being bridesmaid dresses. I would wear this to a gala or any other black tie event in a heartbeat!

nd IMG_1897

 This made to measure baby is really on point. If you’re able to measure yourself and you don’t work with a friend who is trying to sabotage you (lol) your dress will NEVER be too short. Did you read this tall chicas. A dress that is never too short! What a novel idea! Indeed, the design tool asks for your height THEN it lets you know that they allow for extra length for your heels! Check out my pics, not a toe in sight! The tool knows that you need to be fly and rock your heels and that you don’t need to wear you kitty heels just to make the dress look right!
nd IMG_2189

 The bust area is padded. That ensures that your girls sit right every time and that you won’t have any unexpected overexposure lol. You already know how I love a garment with great movement and the flow on this dress does not disappoint. I was looking for my Beyoncé wind machine the entire time that I had it on lol.I would be remiss if I didn’t mention what’s even more impressive: the price point! You would think that a custom dress like this would set you back several hundred dollars… Well guess again! Most of their offerings (currently 225 out of 232 to be exact!) are under $150! How amazing is that! Custom dress for less than $150… This is just amazing!

nd IMG_2202

The dress is just perfect and I didn’t need much to make it pop. I just added a gold belt along with some statement earrings and a bunch of gold bangles. And with that, I’m ready to attend the next inaugural ball – assuming that they don’t lose my invitation this time! LOL
