Elegant Formal Gowns
Elegant Formal Gowns #1: The Classic Romantic
You can never go wrong with a glitzy gold colour in a elegant gown.
The only things to watch out are how the fabric creases when you sit and stand because for those satin and silky gowns, you can spot creases a mile away!
It is bold yet understated, especially if you minimise on the bling everywhere else (your earrings, your hair, wrists, shoes, purse...) It also looks awesome if you have got a tan.
Usually when there are beadings on a dress, you assume it is an expensive dress because of the amount of handiwork.
You also know that they are extremely high maintenance and hard to keep. Therefore you see them only on wedding gowns and extremely formal gowns.
Nevertheless, they have an old world charm, very beautiful and rarer these days due to the lack of time and constant budget-cuts. If you can afford this luxury, enjoy it!
Just like in Breakfast at Tiffany's, every woman should subscribe to the motto to own a really fantastic little black dress. You may wear it to any dressy event with varying dress codes - 'Black tie', 'White tie', 'Formal', even 'Cocktail'.
I love 'curtain' looking heavy textured fabric in a rich colour and how it is constructed. It has a definite shape to the dress, which gives a regal sense of elegance. Definitely my first choice!
