when dressing up seems hard to do

There are times when I need to dress up formally for a function or an occasion. In many of these times, I get anxious because I am really clueless about what to wear because I'm simply not the 'dressy' type of person. Looking back, I had been fortunate to have friends who are always willing to help me find something that suits me or to lend me whatever they have in their closet. If it weren't for my friend who had me wear her extra evening dress and done my makeup, I wouldn't have been able to attend the debut of another friend.

We are getting ready to attend a debut party.

Eight years later, I remembered the last time I needed to wear something formal was the time I played the role of maid of honor for a friend's wedding. At that time, the bride-to-be gave me the freedom to decide what I should wear and how I should look as long as I follow the theme of the wedding. The pressure was left on me to decide on the design and this was something I found difficult to do at that time. Anyhow, a visit to a certain dress shop had ended my ordeal because they had an in-house designer. I was given a lot of options for designs that best suit my physique. I think I looked good in that dress during the wedding but you should know that it took me several trips before I was able to find the perfect dress shop that can accommodate a poor dresser like me.

Today, I realized I would have been able to save a few bucks if I had bought something ready-made. Those trips I mentioned to find the right designer who can commit to a certain deadline ate up a lot of my time because most of them were already booked for the month. So, if I were to do it all over again and given that the element of time pressure is present, I would probably have chosen to buy a ready-made formal dress online since the delivery is practically within 5 to 7 days. With that, I would still have ample time for some minor adjustments/fixes on the dress, if there is any. The good thing about buying online is that there are plenty of great designs to choose from and they also come in a variety of shades and sizes. In fact, when you visit for Beautiful Evening Gown Dresses right now, for example, it is likely that you will find the dress that you need as well as the size and color that should best match the motif of a wedding or any themed function or occasion. Moreover, you can also expect these dresses to come in various price ranges; so, it shouldn't be hard to choose something that is well within the budget range. If you ask me, below are just some of the dresses I found at the Misses Dressy site that I would be happy to wear.

I believe these designs are timeless and have that touch of elegance.
Personally, I want to wear something that is not too physically revealing especially because I don't have something to reveal. LOL! I have a feeling that I am going to need one of these beautiful evening gown dresses later on since I learned that two of my close friends are planning on a church wedding. Hopefully, when that time comes, my Zumba sessions and diet plans would have already taken effect so that I would already shrink to my desired size. Otherwise, I would have to rely on the plus sizes. So, what do you think of my choice? I would love to read your opinion. :-)

do you dig fashion?

Plain and simple - that would be the best phrase to describe myself. When it comes to dressing up, I'm far from being fashionable or trendy. I just want to wear clothes that will not catch anyone's attention. Coincidentally, I seem to agree with a famous writer by the name of William Somerset Maugham when he said that "The well-dressed man is he whose clothes you never notice." Yes, and that's still my aim - to be well-dressed!

If you also ask me if I ever wear any fashion jewelry, occasionally I would but that's only to accessorize myself once in a while. As far as earrings are concerned, I hardly wear any especially if they are fashion earrings because my ears would then get itchy and I would then be forced to take it off, anyway. Here are fashion jewelries that are currently in my drawer. I didn't buy these myself. I simply rummaged through my sister-in-law's giveaway stuffs.

When it comes to my daughter, that's another story. If I can afford to let her wear fashionable clothes and jewelry, I would let her wear them because she is my little doll. :-) Anyway, you can still be fashionable nowadays even if you don't spend too much, right?

She still didn't have her ears pierced just yet, by the way, because I don't think I can stand to see her cry in pain. So for now, her gift from Tita Ruthie will still have to wait until her ears are ready; or should I say "if I'm ready to have her ears pierced." :-)

How about you? What's your fashion statement?

southern style smocked dress, anyone?

Here's a little something for everyone, especially the moms out there, who are looking for dresses or clothing for their own kids or to give away as gifts.

Our friends at Little English have a great line of clothing for our children of different ages and sizes. I've looked around at their site and I really fell in love with their Smocked Dress collection! Yes, I do wish to have one of those hand smocked dresses for my little girl, Pauline.

Haven't you checked out their site just yet? I would love for you guys to come check the site out. They do have nice colors and great designs for children's wear, very distinct southern style -- cool and definitely comfortable to wear because of their smart choice of fabrics!

Talking About The New Normal
