If I were an item of clothing, I would be a tutu. Not just any tutu,but this tutu dress from URS TRULY GRACE. A Kenyan designer whose designs have literally ran away with my heart. The sucker for lace,tulle,structured pieces and box pleats that I am wants everything she makes. Her designs are tailored for the modern,stylish woman. She understands that not every single piece she makes has to contain kitenge fabric.And that’s why I get irked by Kenyan designers sometimes. But that’s a topic for another day. 😀
She sources and uses high quality fabrics.The end results are well constructed clothes that are an added gem in a fashion girl’s closet. All of this at a very affordable prices.Can I get an amen church? Yes to affordability, high quality and great design!
So there’s three different fabrics on this dress. The top is made of lace while the bottom is made of tulle. I love the fact that she made it with a classic boat neckline and satin waist band. The different fabrics and textures definitely make it an interesting garment.
The back of this dress takes the cake. I’ll let you know when I’m able to come to terms with its allure. Right now I just can’t. 😀
