Haute Obsession – That Skirt

Kumari Govender Ball gown skirt

Oh, Carrie Carrie! Why did thou take off after six seasons? As an avid fashion blogger and an ardent Chanel girl, the influence of Carrie Bradshaw on my work can’t be denied. I detect her cynical yet open for exploration classic lip twist in my selfies and her iconic style statements find resonance in my wardrobe!

In short I have been #carriefied!

CUSTOM CREATED SUMPTOUSNESS:

Generally, I do not use the word sumptuous to wax eloquent about my sartorial triumphs. But once you take a look at this Tsotetsi KL beaut, you will get down on your knees and smack your lips too. It is decadent, it is glossy, it is the epitome of feminine chic, and it pays glorious tribute to the full ball gown skirt. Think Dior, Zac Posen and Oscar de la Renta. Set apart by its bold and tropical color palette, it is a once in a lifetime acquisition for a girl who likes to live to the fullest – nee me!!

The floor-skimming structure and the flounces of layers had me drooling ever since Carrie donned one and met Aiden in Abu Dhabi. Being the persistent woman I am, I patiently waited till I could find a similar marvelous creation for myself! I think I did? What do you think darls?

AND ON THAT NOTE: I HAVE DELIVERED!!

Yes, finally my latest creative endeavor has seen the light of day. And I couldn’t be more ecstatic.
