Close friends seems to choose this year to tie the knots, and the invitation card for the recent one that I attended contained a special request, for me to wear a dress to their wedding reception! I have sidetracked her twice while attending two other friends’ reception before, therefore this time I felt compelled to honour her request. From the look when she saw me, I’m guessing she’s happy and I am pleased if she was. Nothing beats the feeling of giving a gift of happiness to a dear friend. As odd as it was.
The special request
After a quick check into my closet, I realised that it is time for the long overdue closet overhaul. It literally screams for me to get the dresses to fit occasions as all I see now are oversized t-shirts and training apparels. Fashion comes and goes. Style, lasts forever. Stick to these simple rule but be adventurous. Dressing up should be fun. If you find it a bore, then perhaps you need a closet overhaul too. Go with these 3 cuts all girls must have and you’re covered. Next comes shoes.
Every woman should always have at least one Little Black Dress or LBD in their closet. LBD is an important piece as it can be worn to various occasions. All you have to do is glam it up with fancy jewelleries for a dinner party or spice it up with a bold necklace for a night out with the ladies and you are set to go. Black is timeless, goes with anything and you would never be off trend. LBD is the easy choice to slip on and sophisticated at the same time.
Black suits everyone
Shift dresses : from am to pm (or later). Versatile for the busy ladies who prefer the simplicity of putting on a comfortable dress without sacrificing chic. Goes from pretty pastels to bright colours, or dark if you’re not a fan of the lighter tones. Pull a cardigan over a shift dress and a slim belt, you’re presentable and chic for the office.
As the sun sets and work is done, a statement necklace will do the trick to bring your look for drinks with friends. Or maybe, that after work dinner date.
Nothing makes a lady feel sexier than a bodycon dress. Wear it up or down, the dress itself is a statement on its own. The word sassy doesn’t justify a bodycon as it can also be a little black dress (or black bodycon) with a naughty side to it. Pair it up with a cute ballerina for the day and if you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, a dark green heels.
Personally, I love online shopping as everything is just a click away, any time, anywhere. If you want to to get these 3 awesome types of dresses, check out ZALORA as it offers an extensive selection from many local and international brands online.
