“It’s not a cocktail dress unless it’s sparkling.”
I am here again, documenting all my fashion whereabouts. How are you all? And how are you celebrating this wedding season? 😀 As I write this post I can’t hold my excitement, I am prepping up wardrobe with some fun filled new clothes for yet another wedding. I have attended a wedding lately but I still feel deficit of clothes, pheww a life of a fashionista is indeed hard. 😛 I do plan to reuse wedding collection I already have but buying two or more pieces of that unforeseen jeopardy is never a bad idea. 😉 But before I head to online surfing to look for new peppy clothes, I would leave you with this post to read all about my new found love, this pretty metallic gown from Laundry by Shelli Segal!
I wore this beauty to a pre-wedding celebration party and I am quite sure the dress turned a lot of heads. (yayya! Height of obsession) 😛 Though I had a very less time on my hands to decide for the outfit for the pre-wedding cocktail party, I was still adamant to splurge on a piece I hadn’t already have in my wardrobe. I was eyeing on Shelli Segal collection for a long time and I was planning to buy a piece for some nice occasion, so I thought what could be a better time to buy this dress than this. I won’t lie I also needed an excuse to get my hands on this beauty, so guilty as charged. 😛
About this dress, this is a very nicely made metallic one shoulder gown, with a thigh high split. I chose this gown out of all Shelli Segal collection because its metallic, that’s high on trend this fall and I hadn’t bought any such piece lately. I admit this piece fits me like skin. <3 I paired this dress gold block heel sandals and a cute black wrist candy. I feel over accessorizing the look takes back attention from the dress, so minimal accessories for this one. Now for the make-up, again I went with bold lips. If you know about my obsession with bold lips you would understand why red lips. 😀 I applied MAC ruby woo on my lips and kept my eye make-up very basic to draw all the attention on that lip color, so I used just the eyeliner and mascara both from MAC. Actually the beauty of this dress is such I didn’t feel like adding anything extra to this beautiful piece. I went with my basic routine of primer-foundation-concealer to prep up skin then the lips and eye make-up. To finish up the look I curled my hair into natural beach waves and they gave a little oomph to my already glamour dress. I love how the bold lips made a statement and how well it complemented the dress, totally in awe. <3
