Tips: How to Choose Your Perfect Party Dress

"OMG! I have this relative's wedding party coming and I don't know what to wear!!!"

Yupp, that happens to us, GIRLS, and guess that's pretty normal. What about the girls who think they know what to wear, but end up picking the wrong dresses? Well, that is not normal and somehow intolerable

So, GIRLS, How to choose a perfect party dress? 
Wait, how you define a perfect one? Pretty? Expensive? Branded? Well not necesarily
It is indeed has to be pretty. But, more importantly, it has to make you look pretty on it. 
There a lot of pretty dresses out there, but you need to choose the one that makes you look pretty. And the one that makes you look and feel pretty, is the one that fits you well. In order to know which dress that fits you well, at the very basis, you need to understand your body type. Am I the curvy type? short-type? model-type with long skinny leg? or the opposite, a bit fat with short legs?

Last month, I had to attend my cousin's wedding. She asked me to be one of her bridesmaids. When someone asked me to be a bride's maid, I would be very happy, excited, but also anxious at the same time as I have to look amazing. In my thought, bride's maid is the centre of attention (after the bride of course). They always stand out among the crowd, because they stay near the bride wearing their shining beautiful dresses. With such thought in mind, I kinda felt the urge to find a beautiful dress.

I got the fabrics for the dress from my cousin. She found me the tailor as well. All I need to do was find the model. Going back to the 1st advice that I gave you above, when choosing the dress, I always imagine myself wearing it. I know my body very well: petite, a bit curvy, with just proportional length (no extra length) of legs, hands, and other parts. Since my legs are not long and lean like those K-Pop idols, I don't think a long gown is a good choice for me,  which is very frustrating, cause I've always been wanting to wear it since ages go. Reason? I just simply love the glamorous and dramatic effect it creates. But again, I realize that they might be pretty, but not on me. And after thinking foquite a while, I decided to choose a model which I think suits me and my body best.

Yes, it's a mini dress at the end, but actually not really, since I added an extra layer outside to maximize the glamorous sense. I imagine that if I were a fairy, they were definitely the wings (I wish). 
Don't you think with this dress on, I look like Tinkerbel's sister? LOL
 Look at those details! Very pretty isn't it?! Thanks to the amazing tailor.

what do you think about the dress? Does it suit my tiny body perfectly? :)

Unlike me, a tiny girl, my sister is a giant. hahaha (she'll be mad if she reads this). I call her giant because she's tall  (and a bit fat before, but now not anymore) and I envy her for being tall, cause she looks so damn good in a long dress. 
Gorgeous, isn't she? The dress looks amazing on her. I don't think I'll rock that long dress as much as she does, nor I think she'll look that gorgoeus in my fairy mini dress. In conclusion, each body type has its own plus and minus point that can be very important factor in selecting a certain model of outfit.
One last thing that is also important in selecting your dress: choose the model that you like and you're confident with. Your self-confident is the key that will help you shine from the inside and will no doubt make you glow from the outside. 

Happy partying girls!!
