EXTRAVAGANZA

little miss muffet
sat on a tuffet
eating her curds and whey
along came a spider
who sat down beside her
and frightened miss muffet away!

- this nursery rhyme is for black007, i promised to teach u rhymes, so i'll post them as intros to my posts instead of songs for now...lol


hey peeps!

i will be going for a friend's wedding on saturday and below are pictures of what my designer made of the pink dry lace aso-ebi!

i liked it when she just brought it to me yesterday, but now i'm not so sure cuz it's a tad "extravagant"! i'm the understated elegance type.

Now I have to think of what to accessorize it with, suggestions anyone? *looks round hopefully*

Also, it looks like bride's dress to me cuz its floor length (i wanted something different from my usual short dresses). so i decided to wear it this morning, take pictures and ask u guys what u think.










I liked the lace until i found out that it was quite cheap and i paid so much for it!

anyhoo, congratulate me for learning how to put up pictures finally. lol

i'm going to publish this now so i can see how it comes out, then i'll eagerly await ur honest comments.

toodles!

fantasy queen said...

whos your tailor?( do u mind sharing?) i love the dress. have a wedding on saturday and so clueless on what to wear as i hate to do asoebi.

BacktoNaija said...

The dress looks great, I think it's simple elegance, not too much at all, but unique enough. Have you seen the bride's dress, is it the same neckline? Well, it doesn't look like a wedding dress to me. You rock it nicely.

BacktoNaija said...

what color are your shoes?

archiwiz said...

Wow! Nice outfit. Its not really extravagant ohh. Silver jewelry (slim necklace with a small, or chandelier-like pendant, with matching earrings and bracelet), and a pink hat (same color ar the rose). I'm suggesting a hat cos I'm not sure how a gele would look with the dress.

LG said...

my parnter in....biz, lolll

honestly d dress looks cute, but i nor see ya face to kno weda e match d dress *widest grin*
so re-upload (no xcuses)

BTW see ya flat 'tummy'

Smaragd said...

SHUBBY, thanx babe! as we have to help out the bro so he doesnt get marginalized in his own house now...lol

high price for cheap lace is just happening to me for the first time o, it's cuz it's aso ebi.

*blushes* u are so sweet.

FQ, hope u got my mail on the tailor. dont mind sharing at all babe.

BTN, thank u "KOFA" (hausa for corper) *winks*. those boots are a dead giveaway!

no i havent seen the bride's dress, but i chose the neckline from a bridal mag. still havent decided what shoes to wear with it.

naijalines said...

Lovely dress, aburo. That bust and the tiny waist...wow.

So your lovely petite self can make guys and girls' eyes pop like this?
O ga o. Enjoy!

Enigma said...

Hello smar! I KNOW YOU!!!

Na lie, just kidding..

Well, now i can associate a body with the name :-)

Smaragd said...

ARCHIWIZ,thank u babe. tech, fashion, perfumes! u are too much. i was thinking along the lines of silver jewelry as well or the bare-neck look. i decided to ditch the gele as sn as i saw the dress...lol.

but no hats for me sha... dont like those.

LG, thank u my partner. but u neva tell me wetin i go wear with the dress o.

ablackjamesbond said...

Aunty Smaragd! Thanks for the lesson.

Anyways i think the dress looks fab...and u obviously have the frame to carry it properly.

on accessories...try a clutch ...no ear rings...a pearl or beaded necklace and heels [open toe]...dont blame me...na so so Style Network my wife dey force me watch for house o. :)

Smaragd said...

ENIGMA, u wish! lol. associate body with name huhn? u are funny.

Zephi Fahrenheit said...

Lovely dress..keep the acessorizing to a minimal as the dress already fabulous by itself

see the shape..slim and trim with some hips to go with it..loves it

Twix! said...

Babe, instead of me looking at style of dress, i was looking at your size. Youre slim o, i dont know why i always imagined you had small weight. The camera shoulda caught your face small now... Anyways, me think dress is really nice. Your simstress got it cos it fits you perfectly. Dont worry about the cost of the lace, its asoebi now abi so it wont be only you wearing "cheap lace". Nice one girl, still strugging with putting up pictures on my blog o

Smaragd said...

BLACK007, thank God for BlackJANE Bond o! see how u simply put me to shame by summing it up neatly! thank u.
there'll be another poem for u next post.

p.s. why are u peeps calling my body "frame" ehn? lol

ZEPHI MI, thanx babe, i blush! will do just that.

Smaragd said...

TWIX, awww, thank u! i am not so slim o, cuz i weigh 55kg @ 5'5/6 and still counting!lol
u are right about the aso-ebi sha.

about uploading pics (feeling like an expert), i found one help link on blogger and followed it. i'll come by ur blog to tell u ...

doll said...

its beauriful...i guess am so steealing the style

isha said...

LOL @ Black007 and his style network tips. It's a real nice dress. and you're working it. it's not too extrvagant, it's real cute. sorry about paying to much for it.

OluwaDee said...

The dress is so lovely, I dint even know it was lace until i read d post.

use silver or pink jewelry.
Have your hair up in a pony tail, u want your lovely shoulders in view.

Thats my phone (Nokia 5300).

Naapali said...

wayo girl, instead make u jewo say u just wan show us as u fine, come dey take corner corner axe kweshon say "wetin una think of my dress"

mtcheeeew

any way the dress fine, e be like say the person wey wear am fit fine too.

bumight said...

if you think the dress is extravagant, then I'll suggest going light on the accessories. like if you do dangling earrings, hold off on the chain. you definitely have to rock heels, peep toes! and a clutch of course!

Chari said...

this is naiz o....hmmn...are u sure ur not showin off ya new cloth because me I dnt see anything extravaga anything there o...

Afrobabe said...

lmao @ shubby doo, when I saw the poem he came to my mind too...

hmmm lekpa shandi...u look great and so does the dress, not sure what u can accesorize it with but I think a simple gold necklace will do cos the dress doesn't need attention taken away....

looks great...

Baroque said...

what is wrong with you, is it because its not Marc Jacobs? you just want to show off your dress because you know its really lovely...

anyway, no hats please (sorry Salvatore Archiwiz), & no outlandish hairdo either; some serious gold, preferably two tone, especially on your neck (Dolce BlackJ, no vex), anyway if you must wear beads, do something atypical, the dress has its Africain already...

looks like blogsvile wants you on their wall, thats why they call you 'frame'...& BlackJ, did i miss your character in The Devil Wears Prada...say u never marry now, i for suspect you *wink*...btw, i love your frame too...LOL...easy to carry

TMinx said...

Its beyootiful and stop making noise about not being slim, or some people wil catch you in the real world and beat you lol. Everyone has given you great advice, just don't wear anything black.

naijalines said...

Lol @ Naapali's comments.
It's true sha sis. You dey take style show us you fine:)

Esmeralda said...

NAIJALINES, egbon, comment moderator swallowed ur comment initially, sorry.
*blushes furiously* thank u very much, i'm just trying to be like u *winks*

DOLL, u are very free to. thanx.

ISHA, dont mind that my friend jare. thank u.

AFRO, thanx ma'am! i am truly bashful now. lepa shandy sha, it's the camera that is very good o.lol

BAROQUE, na wa for all these metrosexual fine boys in blogsville o! u and Black007 have floored me. *brings out exercise book and copies ur comment* lol
p.s, i do love being carried! thanx

TMINX, fellow taurean, lmao! okay, wont say anything about my size anymore. def no black! thanx

UndaCovaSista said...

I love your dress. It IS elegant and understated. Infact, i will be copying the style very soon. Thanks

Shubby Doo said...

@baroque - i'm seriously impressed with ur style tips. @Esmeralda - a new name ke? Smaragd wetin happen?

Afrobabe said...

Esmeralda????

Thats new!!!

naijaleta said...

Honest comment on the pix? Okay, here goes:

I think the person in the picture is a size 8 or 10 and her bra size should be either a 28D or 32C.

Couldn't help but notice that she wasn't wearing any rings. Could it be because she's single and unattached?

Beautiful fingers though. If the fingers are beautiful dont bother looking at the face, you wont be dissapointed.

Tell the person in the picture not to be offended at the description, it's Naijaleta, the one who loves to describe people he's never met before. Enjoy

Abbie said...

OMGawd, that dress is gorgeous!!!
Make sure you take more pics with you all dressed up and accesorized.

mizchif said...

U're highly unserious! How can u say 55kg is not slim. Some of us are in the high 60's dear.
But for real, nice "frame".

I know i'm late, but i hope the wedding went well. I'm sure u rocked tho.

NigerianDramaQueen said...

I dont think the dress is too extravagant at all! It looks elegant,and you make it look even berra. Some fly make-up, a pair of heel, a wicked clutch and your good to go. Bring all the jist from the wedding sharply oh

ibiluv said...

need tailor's add and fone number.....

dress is HOT!!!!!!!!!

u just had to show everyone in blogville how FABULOUS we all look in our famille!!!!!MWAH.......

Esmeralda said...

UC, u are very welcome to it

SHUBBY, na oga baroque command say make i change am o! lol

AFRO, yes o, ask baroque!

NAIJALETA, actually, the comments were meant to be for the dress and not the person... lol. you are almost right on every count, i'm a size 8 (sumtyms 6),32C is right, def not attached.

thanx. so b4 u saw the pic, how would u have described me?

ABBIE, oops... sorry, didnt do that. thanx babe.

MIZCHIF, i apologise dear. thanx. the wedding went well, at least the part of it that i caught..lol

NDQ cherie, merci beaucoup. yea, i did the fly make-up, and the wicked heels. but am afraid the clutch wasnt great...lol, it was my cousin's.

rayo said...

i lov the outfit, i'm clueless @ acessories but make sure u do justice to dat outfit oh babe

Aphrodite said...

Nice style but babes are you sure it's the dress and not ur svelte shape you wanted to show us?lol...

How did the wedding go?

Buttercup said...

beautiful dress! beautiful body!

as some hav said, u shud probably go light wit the accessories..

im sure u'l look fab!

rethots said...

Oh, so 'tis you.......?

Chari said...

when did our name change to Esmerelda?

naijaleta said...

Esmeralda ke? I was feeling really lucky that my blog was going places. I rushed here only to discover that it was good old smaragd.
How is that beautiful body of yours? I hope you're treating those lovely fingers well.
Anyway, dont ask me how would I have described you. I probably would have said the same thing.
Size 6-8 is just perfect and 32C cup bra size? Simply sexy. A beg just maintain that figure and you wont be single for too long unless na by choice.

Baroque said...

like i tied you up & was sucking on your clit against your will, atink now you don talk am like say i force you to change name...Esmeralda...you know see as e sweet?...meanwhile, did you do gold or beads? & hope you got compliments?

kay-shawn said...

Hiya! Just came to tell you that I've watched 'Happy Feet'. Really interesting film.
Thanks for reminding me to watch it.

Afronuts said...

geishasong said...

FAB dress! i want ur tailor!!

Queen of My Castle said...

I feel you on the whole understated elegance. That's my stance on fashion. Simple, chic, sexy, yet classic. LOL

I would say keep it simple with a small diamond pendant necklace, matching stud earrings, and a nice bracelet.

anonymous gal said...

Uzezi said...

guerreiranigeriana said...

...how funny cuz i was wondering who the hell this esmeralda chick was...especially as she was answering peopl...lol...anyway....lmao at baroque's first comment...na wa o!!...na man be that;)...

...i love the dress and i usually don't like things pink...you wear it well with your slim figure...*thinks to self, i need to go running NOW!*...most people have given good advice thus far...no hat though...i prefer silver over gold so i say silver or silverish accessories...i hope i am not giving advice and the wedding has past...haha...

soupasexy said...
