Loving the ankara and leather combo, I can definitely see myself rocking this with a black strapless mini or a strapless bralet with leather trousers.
The lighter coloured pleat detail on the side of the dress really exaggerates the hips, making the waist appear smaller and creating some killer curves.
Velvet is making a comeback, I'm seeing it everywherer these days especially in aso-ebi, the jury's still out for me though.
Although this dress could potentially persuade me to indulge in a little apoche. The back of the dress is neon which provides a lovely contrast thus making it less aso-chair.
