My son had his moving up ceremony today. And because I gained weight, I had to buy myself a new dress, which I wore to the event.
I should've chosen a plain -colored dress. But this is the only one I saw that I like the cut. It's a skater style dress or a 'fit and flare' kind of dress. I especially like the trimming on the waist so it makes more emphasis on the waist and less on the belly. And the length is just right- just above the knee. I've no guts either to wear a more glam outfit like La Femme prom dresses. So I chose this one. I can dress it up or dress it down also depending on my footwear. I can either wear heels like I did in the moving up event, wedge, stilettos, flats, sandals or slippers. I bought it on sale at SM Department Store for only P800.
This skater style dress or 'fit and flare' dress suits the petite like me and most body types like pear, rectangle and wedge.
I bought another dress last week. It's a dropped-waist style. It puts emphasis on the waist and hips. And I like that it's fit so the back curve shows then balloons on the buttocks. Do you notice it has a rather old-fashioned style with the baby collar, the cut and even the flowery pattern? I want to have one in my collection. It's actually navy-blue but it looks black in the picture. The button- down style gives this dress a slimming effect. Wear this dress with flat shoes, strappy sandals for casual wear. Or wedge, stilettos or heels if you want a more formal look. This dress is good for petite ladies, hourglass, wedge or rectangle body types. Bought it sale at Robinson's for only P635.
By the way, I bought these two dresses with my blog earnings. Yey!
