Auspicious Month

Obviously its an auspicious month. Received 3 wedding invites.
1 from and old friend of mine - not going because its in UK
1 from an ex-colleague- also not going because its in my hometown far far away
another one i attended on Saturday.

Sometimes its a difficult choice to pick the right dress for the occasion. Like this particular one, I wore a stripe halter neck wrap-around dress with a high slit infront, i bought it from singapore during my previous trip to lionland. It wasnt expensive at all, 20SGD to be exact. Cheap and fancy. There is a brooch infront at the waist which seems like that was all that held the dress in place. Pretty sexy laah.....loose the brooch and the dress falls apart!! kinky rite?
(update: pretty similar to the Tango dress i saw from Except for the color

I thought i dressed good, untill i saw some of my friends upon arrival, wearing T-SHIRT and JEANS!!! Arggh.......Now puhlleeeeess, i hate moments like that when someone causes me to doubt myself for a moment!!!

Later i actually saw people who dress up well and .....phew.......i am not overdressed.
Don't you just hate it when you're overdressed or underdressed for a particular occasion??

Tips from Fashionasia:
Sometimes overdress or underdress can be an issue. So the best solution not to embarrass yourself is to ask around pre-function(whatever function it may be). Get a friend or two to decide and agree on whats appropriate to wear. Always ask "what will you be wearing?". This way, even if you are overdressed/underdressed, you always have 2-3 other person as company. :)

Can someone frm the UK suggest me a good webstore to buy wedding gifts?? need to ship the gift to a friend. I think its better than buying here and shipping over

Dress?? what dress?



Wow Fashionasia,
If the Tango dress is similar to the one you wore, then , you go girl. Sooo lovely. Its a killer dress la...Never mind la over dress sikit..bila lagi nak melaram.
But you are right, you dont want to be in the spotlight for the wrong reasons.

Actually I think it's completely unacceptable to wear jeans and T-shirt to a wedding, so I'd say your friends were the ones who were underdressed, and you were perfectly appropriate (and pretty, of course!). Your dress sounds lovely!

I never shop for wedding gifts before and I don't know what you are looking for but there's this website which sells lots of gadgets, toys and even adventure gifts. I hope it helps.

Btw, I like your fashion sense. Keep it up! :)
