Pick Your FavePosted on Wednesday, September 14th, 2011 at 12:16 PM
We are absolutely swooning as we write this.
We love this edition of BN Pick Your Fave for so many reasons!
1. The piece is by a Nigerian-owned label – Virgos Lounge
2. It’s International!
3. It’s “Street Style” vs. “Fashion Show Style”
4. The dress is totally gorgeous
Just a few weeks ago, we were browsing through the Daisy-Mak style blog and spotted the blogger, Wunmi Akinsola (You may remember her from BN My Style) rocking the Opal Dress by Virgos Lounge. Just a few hours ago, photos of entrepreneur Angela Simmons surfaced from the Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week in the same dress. The colours of this dress definitely create a wow effect. The Yellow and turquoise beaded party dress stands out for all the right reasons.
Yes this is a “party dress” but Wunmi Akinsola styled it so well as a glam daytime look. She paired the dress with block platform pumps from Dorothy Perkins and accessorized with gold vintage earrings. Wunmi added a nifty pop of colour via her makeup with red lippie and green/gold eyeliner. Her simple braided updo was the final touch. Fab!
Angela Simmons emphasized the nighttime glam factor of this look by letting her long wavy locks down and then she paired her dress with a pair of statement heels! The Crystallized Colorblock Platform Slingback shoes by Giuseppe Zanotti sealed the deal.
