Happiness: What To Wear To Prom/Weddings

Last Saturday, my friend, Jam, was on a hunt for a perfect dress to wear to a wedding. Jam called me and asked me to help her. I always get excited when friends ask for my help and it means a lot to me that they value my opinion.

Coincidentally, Sherry London UK asked me to take a look at their Prom Dress Sale and write a review about their dresses. I'm 27 years old and I'm a decade over my prom days. But I did go to prom, I also went to a lot of debutantes' ball back in the day and I'm currently collaborating with a few engaged women for my bridesmaid dresses, so I know a thing or two about picking dresses or even having them made.

In helping (any of) my friends shop for dresses, I take into consideration a lot of things: their personal style, what colors and shapes will look good on them and the trend. But overall, my advice to Jam in picking her perfect dress was to keep things simple.

I wasn't fashion savvy back then but I knew enough that I had a very simple silhouette picked out. I had a two-piece blue halter dress made. I love how it just emphasized my collar bones back then. If I had to go back and redo my prom, I would have still gone for the same dress but ditched my date. The point is, stick to a classic silhouette that you'll want to wear ten years from now. 

I was looking at Sherry London's website and picked out my top 5 dresses they have whether you're headed to prom or a friend's wedding. I love that they have a wide color selection and that they give you detailed instructions on how to measure yourself if you're buying online. They also ship internationally, perfect for anyone outside the UK.

I think I have found my perfect bridesmaid dress for my best friend, Tricia's wedding. Like I said, I am a sucker for classic cuts and this sweetheart-style dress is gorgeous. 

I love this high neck dress. It is a bit trendy but I think it's gorgeous. It takes its cue from classic pieces except for the fact that it is cropped on the top. But I think it's a good balance of classic and trendy. 

I have a thing for halter dresses although mine was more of a triangle kind than this. Not only is it a great cut but it also saves you from having to think about what necklace to wear. 

I absolutely love this dress. It gives you that two-tone effect that is very contemporary. I also love how the pleats dramatically gives volume to the dress. 

Short dresses are also cool. I remember my friend Jaq, wore an orange dress to prom. I was floored, I didn't know you could actually wear a short dress to prom back then. But she did and she looked awesome. Nowadays, it's so common and even more practical to wear short dresses. I'd totally wear a dress like this to prom, event galas or weddings. 

Sherry London UK is currently having a summer sale on their prom dresses. If you're on a hunt for great bargain dresses, go check them out.

Disconnect: 2AM - Paperbag Coats

Living in a tropical country such as the Philippines or Singapore makes it impossible to rock a trench. Ironic how I love layers, isn't it. Anyway, a girl can dream, right? Spring has sprung and these coats are perfect for those who live in a breezier side of the world.

Disconnect: National Siblings Day

It's national siblings day! Found these super cute photos of super fashionable siblings. I wish my brothers and I were this hip, hahaha! Anyway, I could only wish that my future kids (if ever) will have a loving relationship like these kids.

Disconnect: All About Love (The 10 Best Rom-Coms)

About a year ago, I started drafting this post of my favorite romantic comedies but I never got to finish. Luckily, I was going through all my drafts and found this. I intended to post this on Valentines day but I went out with my friends... But it's the Valentines day weekend, which means it's totally perfect for a good movie marathon and/or a slumber party...

I am a huge movie buff and rom-coms are generally a favorite in the film genres. I love the fact that rom-coms are no-brainer, no fuss, light-hearted and funny. I love watching it over and over and over again and even if I've seen it a hundred times, it doesn't really get old.

Okay, before we start, don't be fooled. None of what's on the collage made it to my list. Sure, they're great but I need more from my rom-com than just a good love story. I need me some funny!

Happiness: Recovery

I must admit--I am a very intense person. I have been called a conundrum; and to some extent, I am confusing, riddled and more often than not, a difficult problem. I am a Virgo and a Rabbit after all--if that gives any indication of who I am as a person. I get anxious easily. I feel a lot of things and see a lot of things. I thrive in my own version of chaos and order.

That said, I try my best to unwind or be less neurotic--if that is even possible. Here are some of the products I use to help me relax.
