Your first ever dress was: An enormously fluffy white Christening dress. I obviously cried when it got wet.

Your oldest dress: A long white shirt that I tie and wear as a dress. That counts, eh? icon wink Girls On Dresses: Lela of lelalondon.com

Your most expensive dress: …is from Alexander McQueen. Definitely more of a collector’s item, for me!

Seen the most dancefloors: A very, very sparkly black mini. Comfort is key, so it really delivers.

Favourite dress: I could never, ever choose just one!

What was the last event you wore a dress to and what did you wear? A dinner party, where I wore a hand-made baby blue peplum dress. Love my peplums.

Mini or Maxi? Mini! I’m only 5ft 2!

Who are your red carpet idols? Who always gets it right? Recently, it has been Selena Gomez. There is always something quirky in her look without venturing too far away from classic bombshell silhouettes.

What is your most memorable dress moment? When my (very necessary) dress strap broke during a dance recital. Memorable for all the wrong reasons!

Describing herself as a Blogger + Designer + Dreamer who makes bespoke goodies, stationery & graphic design at your service, Amma chats to GMD about credit card workouts in the name of fashion, her Jasper Garvida dress crush, and the contents of her 2.5 double wardrobes….

Your first ever dress was: It must of been a baby dress (shame I can’t remember one of most indulged parts of my life), but the first dress I actually remember was my gingham school dress.  I thought I was oh so sophisticated age five,  pulling down the straps to rock it Bandeau style.  I have a picture of that somewhere, got to dig that out.

Your oldest dress: My oldest dress is a little black number, I have expanded a bit I will never get into that dress again without a starvation diet, or being horrendously ill.  But, I look at it and remember my formative years as a human twiglet.

Your most expensive dress: My bridal gown, it is so funny that I am a normally a bargainista, and then the moment that my big day came – my credit card got the most eye watering work out of the century!

Seen the most dancefloors: None, I am ashamed to say that my name is Amma and I have an addiction to clothes.  I have two and a half double wardrobes and 6 drawers of fashion.  Every so often I find something that I forgot I even had. *blushes*  I am in desperate need of wardrobe detoxing!

Favourite dress: My favourite dress of the moment is a maxi dress it is a rust colour, with a cowl neck and little belt – and I love it.  It trails behind me when I walk down the stairs so I feel like a princess.

What was the last event you wore a dress to and what did you wear? The last dress that I wore was to a friend’s party and it was from AQUA.

Mini or Maxi? Now, I am slowly disintergrating I keep getting the legs out before I become mutton – so right now it is all about the minis!

Who are your red carpet idols? Who always gets it right? Red carpet idol is *drum roll* the Stefani, I love Gwen’s style and I adore her L.A.M.B range.

What is your most memorable dress moment? It is a denim dress that I got when I was younger as I worked weeks to get. I scrubbed floors and perfomed all kinds of quasi-entrepreneurial enterprises and it taught me one big lesson; you appreciate the things that you work hardest for.

Jasper Garvida Anna dress Girls on Dresses: Amma Adjubi Archibald of beyondbeyond.co.uk

Jasper Garvida Anna Dress - Hire: £99 - RRP: £620

Which dress would be top of your Girl Meets Dress lust list? I have a big dribbly crush on the the Anna Dress by JASPER GARVIDA.

As someone who always has a new event to attend – how would Girl Meets Dress complement your life? Girl Meets Dress would mean that I don’t have to invest in a 4th wardrobe. I love the idea of the dress being transient, having it that night and then letting it go.  Also, there is something nice about wondering where the dress has been before – what soirees it has been to.  If dresses could talk eh?

Abisola Omole, a fashion, lifestyle & entertainment writer, stylist, and photographer (the girl’s certainly got talent!) lists the lust-objects currently at the centre of her dress crush! The author of www.abimarvel.com a blog that combines creative musings on all the latest trends, photography, lifestyle, and entertainment, Abisola’s talents as a blogess have seen her get to the final stage of the handbag.com online fashion awards

 

Your first ever dress was: Gosh. I suppose my earliest memory was when I was 6 and is that of a lilac dress that stopped just below my knees. It was from Macy’s New York, the actual brand, I’m unsure about, but it had this cute brocade top to it, then a silk skirt. It was short sleeved and just quite lovely. I remember being in grand central station and this random well dressed man came up to me & my family and said he liked my dress and handed me this brand new perfume bottle, ’til this day I still wear the perfume.

Your oldest dress: A simply stripey jersey dress I bought from Warehouse, that I have worn way too much! I bought it around 3 or 4 years ago, believe it or not, I don’t have many clothes now from before then.

Your most expensive dress: I’m not a huge spender (yet), being so young and all, but I recently bought a quant little dress from Whistles that cost £95. Actually now that I think about it, my prom dress cost just under £300, so that would be the most expensive dress.

Seen the most dancefloors: A slinky creamy coloured dress I bought from ASOS. It’s slightly loose at the bottom, goes in,  in the middle then flows down to just above me knee. It’s a keeper.

Favourite dress: It’s a simple cream summer dress that has a pretty floral embellishment on the body part, with an overly flowy skirt. It’s sleeveless and perfect for summer! It’s from ASOS.

What was the last event you wore a dress to and what did you wear? I would say the last, proper event I went to was my birthday party a couple weeks ago to which I wore this ASOS Stripe Shirt Dress, which was such a great buy! It’s a super lovely dress.

Mini or Maxi? Ooh that’s a hard one, I don’t want to be obvious and say ‘it depends on the situation’ but it kinda does. Okay, here goes, I’m going to say maxi.

Who are your red carpet idols? Who always gets it right? Easy, I’d say Cate Blanchett, Zoe Saldana, Anne Hathaway. Cate’s red carpet style is my favourite, whether she’s wearing a magnificent gown by Givenchy or a vintage Christian Lacriox, she always looks out of this world!

What is your most memorable dress moment? Wearing a dark sweeping maxi dress to the first day of fashion week last season. It was a weird moment because I thought, ‘oh dear, people are goingto think I’m a complete spectacle and that I should keep it a lot more simple for fashion week’, but it worked and I got loads of complements, which I didn’t expect. I almost didn’t wear it, in fear that I trip over it as I was walking on the cobbled Somerset house pavements, but alas, I survived.

Anna Sui patterned shirt dress Girls on Dresses  Abisola, aka Abimarvel, on the Objects of her Dress (Hire) Desires, & Dresses of Eras Past

Carven drape detail apricot dress Girls on Dresses  Abisola, aka Abimarvel, on the Objects of her Dress (Hire) Desires, & Dresses of Eras PastWhich dress would be top of your Girl Meets Dress hire lust list? It would probably be the Carven drape detail dress. It’s a lovely colour, great shape and seems to fit really well and wouldgo from a day to night outfit, oh so easily. Though the patterned shirt dress by Anna Sui, is simply divine. I literally can’t stop looking at it!

As someone who always has a new event to attend – how would Girl Meets Dress dress hire complement your life? Wow, in so many ways. I know some people think it’s a myth that people in fashion don’t like to wear the same dress twice, but it really isn’t. Whenever you see red carpet stars or editors at events, you never say, ‘oh she wore that last time’ because she never has and will probably never wear it again – well at least not to a high profile, paparazzi snapping event, so for me, with all the events I go to, Girl Meets Dress provides me with the opportunity to not only have to never worry about wearing the same dress twice to an event, but to look amazing whilst wearing them!
