Girls on Dresses- Abisola, aka Abimarvel, on the Objects of her Dress (Hire) Desires, & Dresses of Eras Past

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.

Which 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!

Your first ever dress was:
The first dress I remember was this black party dress with a 50s style green satin skirt with tulle. I ADORED that dress but it was itchy and I preferred looking at it to wearing it really.

Your oldest dress:
I buy a lot of vintage, retro dresses because I like the one of a kind. I have a pink 1950s prom dress but the zip has ripped and I haven’t had it fixed. Plus it’s quite a statement dress and I haven’t had a suitable occasion to wear it yet.

Your most expensive dress:
I discovered this boutique run by a very eccentric character in New York years ago and ended up spending a fortune. I bought this purple oversized, off the shoulder dress which apparently Gwen Stefani had bought as well. I’ve worn it loads though so times per wear it’s definitely been worth it.

Seen the most dancefloors:
This black lace panelled dress I bought ages ago with a peter pan collar (very flattering, love that neckline). It’s a little bit gothic glam but with a slight Victorian feel. It works at dinner parties as much as party parties so I get it out a lot!

Favourite dress:
At the moment the cream lace one from this picture. It’s a TopShop dress that I bought in petite because I liked it better super short with thick tights or leggings. I have a thing for neutral, pastels and anything lace or tulle.

What was the last event you wore a dress to and what did you wear?

I went to a friend’s magazine launch party and wore this tangerine Topshop smock dress with chunky black vintage heels. There were lots of musos there so I actually felt quite overdressed!

Mini or Maxi?

Ooh tough one. Normally mini but in summer I love maxi dresses. I’ve got a plain black one which is perfect for oversized rings and a summer tan.

Who are your red carpet idols? Who always gets it right?

Zooey Deschanel always looks quirky but classy and I love that combo. And although she’s a bit preppy for me I think Emma Watson always looks classic and stylish.

What is your most memorable dress moment?

My mum bought me a bespoke dress from a boutique when we were on holiday years ago for my end of school prom party. It was long and very figure hugging with a slit up the side and reminded me of the sea with a kind of blue and purple swirly pattern. It sounds awful but it was so pretty and unique. And when I walked into the ballroom in it I felt like a superstar!

Which dress would be top of your Girl Meets Dress lust list?

I’ve actually included them in my blog post on you! My number one would have to be the gold Aftershock palais maxi dress. It’s so slinky and sparkly, I’d totally wear it if/when I get invited to the Oscars next year.

As someone who always has a new event to attend – how would Girl Meets Dress dress hire complement your life?
Running my own business doesn’t exactly leave a lot of spare cash for designer dresses. So I’m all for the option to wear something I wouldn’t normally be able to afford. Plus I love the way it can all be done online. Perfect for a girl watching her wallet and with no time to shop!

Your first ever dress was: a lovely black number with flowers and a huge white collar. I was probably about 18 months. I rocked that look.

Your oldest dress: I have a number of vintage dresses in my wardrobe that I’ve collected over the years. The green one pictured came from a vintage wedding dress shop in Birmingham called The Wedding Club. I plan to have it shortened so I can wear it on nights out!

Your most expensive dress: My wedding dress!

Seen the most dancefloors: Oh I’m terrible…I buy so many dresses that I rarely wear one on a night out more than a few times! I have a number of black staples though that I always throw on if I’m feeling uninspired.

Favourite dress: Again, this changes often! I just bought a couple of black cotton mid length dresses from Uniqlo which are super comfy and flattering.

What was the last event you wore a dress to and what did you wear? I had a party in April and I wore this vintage polka-dot dress from Fur Coat No Knickers, a vintage shop in London. I wore it with a petticoat with a pink trim!

Mini or Maxi? Maxi

Who are your red carpet idols? Who always gets it right? Angelina can’t be beaten.

What is your most memorable dress moment? Probably getting married! As I got to the bottom of the aisle my soon to be husband squeezed my hand and whispered ‘you look awesome’

Which dress would be top of your Girl Meets Dress lust list? I love quite simple and flattering shapes that I can rock up with accessories, shoes and handbags! Dresses like this beaut (right) from Butter by Nadia would be perfect in my wardrobe (hint hint!)

As someone who always has a new event to attend – how would Girl Meets Dress complement your life?
I love borrowing dresses when I have an important event to go to. it means I dont have to spend a fortune on a dress I might only wear once. I can’t afford the designer price tags so the Girl Meets Dress online designer dress hire service is perfect for me!

Girls on Dresses: Joanna/Badaude

Joanna in the the throws of illustration passion

Writer, illustrator and author of quirky travel blog- http://www.badaude.typepad.com/ , Badaude has received international acclaim for her work, having appeared in numerous publications including The Guardian, The Economist, and The New York Times. She is currently Paris editor of Stylebible, as well as drawing a weekly column at the Times.  Look out for her latest publication in collaboration with the Tate and upcoming exhibitions in 2011.

Here Badaude chats dress love affairs, disasters, periods of dress torture (the latter,  she attributes to her auntie), and reveals to us her ‘coup de foudre’ dress

You first ever dress was: a bridesmaids’ dress aged 4 in cherry-pink satin which I wore for my aunt’s wedding when I was four. It came with a winter wedding faux-fur white cape and I loved everything about it. The only trouble was that another of my aunts decided on a reprise some years later and kitted me and my cousins out in almost identical cherry-pink satin numbers (with a little more cleavage). Sadly she didn’t realise that what looks good on a 4-year-old doesn’t necessarily suit a 24-year-old.

Your oldest dress: Though I’m not a hoarder I still have the first cherry-pink satin dress. But not the second.

Your most expensive dress: A black Preen bandage dress with a puff over the hips and a highly visible zip right down the back. It takes about half an hour to get into it (and two seconds to get out of it, which may be the point) but it does amazing things to my body and is well worth it.

Seen the most dancefloors: An Isabel Marant cream shirt-dress with a subtle silver lurex stripe: great to wear under my See by Chloe cropped tuxedo jacket. Oddly, I also wear it a lot as a beach cover-up.

Favourite dress: isn’t any more. I spilt paprika-spiked tapas on in in Seville last week. It was an APC shirtdress. Shirtdresses are genius. You can pack 10 different dresses and it’s lighter than carrying 10 t-shirts.

What was the last event you wore a dress to and what did you wear? 3.1 Phillip Lim dress to a wedding: layers of navy chiffon with tiny flowers in a really simple tunic shape with a high slash neck. I wore it with basic thong flat sandals and  black eyeliner.I’d just watched Spartacus and decided to call it my Tony Curtis look.

Mini or Maxi? Mini. If I wear maxi I look like a roll of carpet. Especially in Pucci.

Who are your red carpet idols? Who always gets it right? Clemence Poesy, Sofia Coppola, Emmanuelle Beart, Lou Doillon (can you tell I spend a lot of time in Paris?). And I’d love to look like Jean Seaberg in the black tutu-skirt cocktail dress she wears at the beginning of the movie, Bonjour Tristesse.

Chloe black volume dress

What is your most memorable dress moment? Usually spilling something on one of them disastrously: not the best memories but, like the stains, they do tend to stick… OK maybe trying on a slate grey cocktail dress in the Vanessa Bruno boutique in rue Saint Sulpice in Paris. As I came out of the changing room, a girl came out of the next-door ‘cabine’ wearing exactly the same strapless layered dress but in white. We both thought we looked so fantastic that I bought it to wear as a wedding guest and she ended up buying it to wear for her own wedding.

Which dress would be top of your Girl Meets Dress lust list? It’s not my size but  I’ve fallen in love with the Chloe Volume Gown.

As someone who always has a new event to attend – how would Girl Meets Dress hire complement your life? Dresses are Cinderella objects – more than any other piece of clothing they can transform your perception of yourself. So, although I know my everyday style and seldom deviate, an ‘occasion’ dress is one time I’m happy to experiment. Renting a dress from GMD  means I can let go and experiment: so let’s go with an Elizabeth-Hurley-style Versus safety-pin dress or maybe a Halston Heritage gold lame gown.
