Hosting or attending cocktail party are always fun. You get to play dress-and-dolled-up! However, the  problem that seems to arise is to find something to wear. Now I know most of my ladies out there would immediately choose neutral colors when it comes to this. Somehow they feel “safe” and comfortable. But today, I’m gonna show you that you can actually have a lot of fun playing with colors! Cocktail parties are created so that we can socialize and of course be fabulous and pretty.

For this, I’ve found JJs House as one of the best online shops you should consider because they have so many beautiful tailored dresses! Good news is they don’t only have cocktail dresses, but also evening dresses up to wedding gowns. All in affordable prices! Here are some good looking dresses (in colors) that I found. They would definitely make you the center of attention and the talk of the night!

1. Shades of Purple

I’m giving you three gorgeous shades of purple and I’m certain you’re gonna love each and one of them. Purple is one of the best shades you can choose to accentuate your figure and it happens to be one of my favorite colors, too. You can definitely be elegant and playful at the same time, especially if you wear these body-fitting dresses.. I’m loving the pretty bow, beautiful beaded sequins and asymmetrical style on these dresses, which one is calling out your name?

2. Shades of Pink

Whether you want to look feminine and girly or elegant and mature, you can always count on shades of pink. There’s something about this color that immediately changes your appeal and pink goes with pretty much everything! For this particular color, I have specifically chosen dresses with elaborate sequins, rosette and crystals because they just look so good together. Whether it is in bandeau-corset or V-neckline style, the power of pink will change your daytime serious look into one pretty princess.

3. Shades of Green

Who can resist the power of green? Especially when it comes in dresses! Green is cooling, elegant and goes pretty much with any skin color. There are a lot of different shades of green and these three are on top of my list for the charm and uniqueness. And don’t you just love those pretty necklines?

4. Shades of Orange

Orange is probably the least favorite when it comes to cocktail dresses but hey, take a look at these ones and you might change your mind! Orange is vibrant, cheerful and would definitely put you right under the spot effortlessly. What’s great about shades of orange is that sometimes you can leave your accessories at home and wear subtle make-up because they already shine your beauty and style, just like that.

5. Shades of Blue

Blue is known to be one of the most liked colors when it comes to cocktail parties and it’s not hard to see why. I personally adore the first dress for the simple seductive style, the second for the color-coordination and the third for the elegant diva look. I love how those sparkling sequins accentuate the figure and the skin just right.

So, now that you’ve seen some color options for your next cocktail dresses, you can forget about going to the same old monotone colors such as black, white, beige or such. It is time to shine and be more playful!

How to Look Fabulous for Less Than $50

VS Friends

Heading out on a long-awaited girl’s night and want to look fab but you don’t have heaps of cash to splurge on a new outfit or beauty products? Not to worry, you don’t need to spend a lot to look good. I’ll fill you in on how you can create a fabulous new look without spending more than $50.

Hair.
Hairdo

We’d all love to be able to afford to go to a professional to get our hair done every time we go out but that is just not realistic for the majority of us. If you’re not great at doing your own hair, ask a friend to help you – remember if you’re going to be curling your hair – it’s best to do it a day or two after washing it. You can also look on Youtube which has an abundance of videos which show you how to create a glamorous style at home.

Skin.
Glowing Skin

Similar to having great hair, glowing skin will ensure you look radiant no matter what outfit you’re wearing.  If you don’t already own a decent face cream,  there are a number of great moisturizers which cost less than $10, such as Burt’s Bees, Jergen’s, and Olay.  If your skin is glowing you can forgo heavy makeup which means simply dab on some lip gloss, blush, and a coat of mascara.

Wardrobe.
Shopping

This is usually where us ladies get stuck. As we all know, we can have a closet full of clothes but still have “nothing to wear”.  If you’re on a tight budget, why not get statement jewellery from bargain stores, and then pair it with one of your little black dresses (you know you have at least one in your closet). Adding a little bling will completely transform the outfit! If you’re dead against wearing something you’ve worn previously, then there is another affordable way to buy new clothes without breaking the bank. Quicksales is a shopping site that sell second hand clothes or unwanted gifts. It is a bargain basement for things like designer clothes which may have been worn once, or even brand new items which people simply don’t want anymore. For example, this morning I saw a Mango shirt dress for only $15! Now that’s what I call a real bargain!

So, now that we agree that looking and feeling great don’t have to be expensive, we can start playing mix and match with things we already have or shop for affordable and fashionable stuff at bargain shops!

I have so much love for this Beirut-based Lebanese designer for his eyes on fashion and women. In case you didn’t know yet, he’s famous among celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Miley Cyrus, Fergie and Christina Aguilera. One of my friends who is also a fashion designer has considered him as one of his inspirations and it’s not hard to see why. If there’s one designer who knows how to be playful with lace and sequins, Zuhair Murad is one of them. This time I can’t help but falling deeply in love with his Fall 2013 Couture collection. For this showcase, Zuhair is playing with sweet, subtle, bold and statement colors of ivory, grey, purple, green, blue, maroon and black. His meticulous style is portrayed in all dresses with series of dreamy feathers, crystals, and lace. Every woman will definitely feel the prettiest when they put on these amazing dresses.

9 Fabulous Maxi Dresses for Summer

Filed under Fashion 

by Vie on July 4, 2013

Little black dress is considered to be a must-have in fashion bible. For me, however, they are LBD and maxi dress. Maxi for me is not only about the comfort but also style and elegance. What I love about maxi dresses is that you can wear them pretty much anytime and anywhere — to the beach, shopping, afternoon soiree or even on your hot-dates!
However, just like finding a good date, it is also not easy to find the right dress. Which is why, today’s mission is to sort that out! — getting the right dress doesn’t have to be so hard and expensive. Here are some of the styles that I like with price that won’t burn a hole in your pocket!

1. Sexy Stripes.
Whether you want them to be playful or elegant, there’s something about stripes that you can’t deny. They accentuate your figure right and at the same time, give you flawless style! This is perfect when you want to go casual but still looking all hot, desirable and sexy!

1. Victoria’s Secret Cowlneck Maxi Dress. US$19.99.
2. Delias Bright Stripe Maxi. US$44.90.
3. Forever21 Striped Halter Maxi Dress. US$22.80.

2. Not Your Ordinary Plain Jane.
If you plan to accessorize, then the safest way to choose your maxi is the plain one.. but just because you wanna go “plain”, doesn’t mean you can be boring, go with braided strap, asymmetric bottom or flirty ruffles!

3. Forever21 Paneled Maxi Dress. US$24.80.

3. Print Me Right.
Here’s my favorite way to wear maxi when I have no idea how to accessorize myself. Printed maxi dress is always my good solution because I don’t need to think extra hard for those “skin-embellishments”. Whether they’re subtle or bright, printed maxi dress is always fun to wear!
