-a search for the perfect dress-
Another year has almost ended…. another reason to party and look fabulous! Yey!
I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect dress and perfect accessories for the past few weeks and I must say it’s not as easy as it may seem. I guess with age I’ve become kind of picky because I want to look head-to-toe great, as I am sure you also do. I mean, all of us ladies deserve to feel like princesses, at least for one night!
My main focus was to find something that looks great and is still affordable because I’m not as rich as I would want to and unfortunately I have tons of bills to pay.
I am blonde with blue eyes and fair skin so my plan was to find a red dress because I feel that intense colors suit me (sadly everything pale just washes me off completely). I will pair it with some nude pumps, a gold/ nude clutch and some statement jewelry. I’m sure it sounds a bit over the top, but I like it that way!
First of all I have to find the perfect dress and I’m not going to casual party so I want something with rhinestones or precious fabrics. Browsing for online offers I came across a great variety of Red Prom Dresses on www.1dress.co.uk
I really like the maxi ones because they look like they are for the red carpet and I’m sure I would feel like a celebrity wearing one but I have to go for a shorter dress because I’m kind of short myself and unfortunately it wouldn’t look good on me no matter what monster heels I would wear.
Here are my top choices:
I’ve always wanted a bandage dress and I feel like I finally found the perfect one. It’s the Spaghetti Straps Sheath/Column Sleeveless Short/Mini Chiffon Homecoming Dress
I like that the element of surprise is the back and it’s great that it is bodycon because that elongates my body. It’s also on discount. The regular price used to be £160 and now it’s on discount for £79.53. It’s really affordable, if you ask me.
I would pair this dress with the nude pumps, a metal clutch and I would keep my hair and makeup simple because less is more, right? I would probably go with a classical look like a cat eye, nude lips, nude nails, and an up-do for the hair. I wouldn’t want for the makeup or the accessories to take the spotlight from the dress, wouldn’t I?
My other favorite is the One Shoulder Sheath/Column Short Short/Mini Chiffon Cocktail Dresses
For this one I would go with some small earrings and an oversized zirconium bracelet. As far as the makeup goes I would also keep it simple (cat eye, nude lip) and I would style my hair to look naturaly wavy.
I think one shoulder dresses are so elegant and classy. They are really hot without revealing anything and I think that’s perfect for the occasion. I also am absolutely in love with the way those rhinestones look…. so artistic! This one is also discounted from £180 to about £89!
Beside the discounts I have also found a coupon code that will save me an extra $10: xq10usdoff . Now, I don’t know about you but I’m actually getting a feeling of sublime happiness when I get extra discounts on stuff that is already discounted…. Hehe I guess I am weird that way!
Moreover, I like about their website that they have a great customer service, they were prompt with answering all of my questions and they are also very nice.
Another thing I enjoy is the fact that they make the dresses so they would fit you like a glove because every dress is custom made for your body. I hate it when I buy stuff from stores because they never fit my body right and I always have to take it to the tailor and modify it… which is time and money consuming and kind of frustrating too (makes me feel like my body isn’t normal….which I know it’s not the case… hopefully)
So, I hope you liked my recent store find and I hope it’s helpful to you in some way. I am really undecided on which dress I should order so if you ladies have some spare time please let me know which one you would chose.
