I don’t know about you but I’ve always been a big fan of outdoor weddings. There’s nothing more liberating than having nature around you.. and Bali is all about outdoors, thanks to our beautiful beaches and well-situated gardens. Speaking about weddings, my brother’s getting married in December and since he’s doing it in the city, it will be held indoor. I know it’s still 4 months away but I think it’s time for me to find something nice to wear. So I was browsing through party and evening dresses for some inspiration and I found JessicasFashion. Although I’m not going to be one of the bridesmaids but I totally love the bridesmaid dresses from this site. Not only are they ridiculously gorgeous but also very affordable. It’s impossible to choose just one! If you happen to carry a bridesmaid duty anytime soon, then you might find this post useful.

For outdoor weddings, it is recommendable that bridesmaids wear something light and comfortable. I’m referring to simpler model and shorter dress. Being a bridesmaid is not an easy task, so you need to make sure that not only will you look incredibly beautiful but also free to move around — in case your bride needs you ; )

1. Classic Strapless.

Simple and sweet, that’s what this classic strapless is all about. Available in soft colors, they will certainly make any outdoor party more fun and romantic! I personally love the pink one, it’s just too adorable to resist!

2. Sexy and Eccentric.

If you’re not afraid to play with bold colors and daring prints, then you certainly can go for this eccentric yet exotic dress! I love the little ribbon bow around the waist. It’s playful and at the same time adding more style to the dress.

Now, if the wedding is going to be indoor, then it’s best to dress up the bridesmaids with long dresses. I’m not saying shorter dresses won’t work, they still can, but I think longer dresses would be more suitable. Here are some options for you to consider!

1. The Pretty Rosettes.

I find this dress is simply irresistible. First, I love rosettes, I think they’re great and give more appeal to the dress. Second, this dress will definitely show off the curves beautifully. All you need is to pick which color suits you the most and voila, you’ll be the dream bridesmaid!

2. The Fancy Bling.

There’s nothing wrong in adding extra bling to the dress, especially when they’re attached to flowing chiffon like this. I fancy this dress for the sexy crystals which remind me of snowflakes, the one-strap style that’s not only sexy but also elegant, and finally the gentle chiffon embracing the figure alluringly.

So what do you think ladies, think you’re ready to be the bridesmaid of the year? ; )

Get Stylish With This Season’s Most Wanted Blues

Once in a while we need a little dose of classic, and with classic I mean a little touch of denim (if not, a lot). I believe everyone (girl or boy) should have at least a pair of good denim as their trusted sidekick because you can’t get any more comfortable than that. So if you consider yourself a denim kinda person, you’d be glad to know that this season is all about the blues. Whether it’s a boot-cut style, flare, skinny or shorts, the power of denim is totally inevitable. I spotted celebrities Kate Hudson and Amanda Seyfried wearing their denim beautifully at the red carpet premieres. No matter what color of blues you choose, as long as you got the move, you got it right!

Now here’s the good news, ladies. You don’t need to spend a fortune just to get the right denim. Here are a few options for you to consider if you want to go with the blues.

1. Shorts.
Denim Shorts

Okay, who’s into cheeky shorts and hipster? I know I totally am! Especially when they’re looking as flirty as these. Victoria’s Secret surely knows how to hug our curves right. The first shorts you see is the Cheeky short, made with visible pocket lining, making it look hot & sexy. US$39.60. The second one is the Hipster, still looking good but a bit more conservative in a way. Pair it with you favorite belt and you’re ready to style up your day! US$29.50.

2. Bustier.

When a girl wear a bustier, you know she means business! Bustier is created to flaunt your upper body and there’s nothing sexier than having it with a touch of denim. If you’re more of a classic, then you can choose the lovely Prairie Love denim on the left. US$17.80. Or if you’re feeling a bit more playful and flirty, you can go with the sexy polkadots on the right! US$14.80.

3. Mini Skirts.

When it comes to a mini skirt, I’m more into a subtle and classic style, which is why the one on the left is my first choice. This cotton made denim is sexy enough to show some legs and at the same time very comfortable to wear. US$25.46. But if you feel a bit more expressive and feminine, you can always set your style to this lovely skirt from Forever21. US$22.80.

4. Pants.
Denim Pants

Whether you like it straight or boot-cut, you must agree that denim pants is part of the fashion essentials. I don’t know about you but I’ve always been a boot-cut kinda girl, although now I start to look into a straight-cut style, like this one from Victoria’s Secret. I love the rugged look and the fact that it’s hipster, too. US$55.60. However, I can’t take my eyes off the boot-cut jean, which is a closet classic. This one is has a five-pocket styling and available in 6 fantastic colors! US$55.60.

5. Shoes.
Denim Shoes

There are so many designer shoes out there that offer a touch of denim on their soles, but since we’re talking about affordable ones, so I chose these two pairs from Ivanka and Nine West. I love Ivanka’s wedges not only for the style but also for the washed denim color that’s so subtle and would go with pretty much anything you wear. US$54.99. Now if you wanna go with a little bit of style and additional glam, you might wanna take a closer look at these posh pumps from Nine West. I kinda like the haircalf-wrapped platform idea, it’s quite glamorous and playful, don’t you think? US$66.99.

Marilyn Monroe once said “Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.” I see a lot of truths in it because once you put on the right soles, then you’ll be so confident you pretty much can do everything! And I also believe that you should invest more on shoes rather than other accessories, because there is no bigger agony than walking with crazy blisters on your feet. As girls, we are lucky to have so many fabulous designers creating gorgeous shoes for our feet pleasure. Christian Louboutin, Nicholas Kirkwood, Brian Atwood, Charlotte Olympia are to name a few. Every girl wouldn’t mind having them on everyday, right? So today, after being inspired by such a quote, I’ve decided to look for some new hot heels. Wear them right and you might just have the world at your fingertips, or should I say, toes? ; )

What I love particularly about this glamorous Swarovski pump is the hand-sewn suede flowers on the heels. Don’t you think they’re simply fabulous? I’m not too crazy about the price though but what to do? if quality is what you’re after, you might as well get the best, right?

Having healthy and beautiful hair is definitely every woman’s dream! Hair is considered to be one of the most important features of a woman and that’s why we need to take really good care of it. However, with so many hair products out there, it can be quite difficult to have healthy hair without “ruining” them at the same time. Some hair products use strong chemical ingredients that could do us harm. For years, I used to dye, perm, straightened my hair and used a lot of “good” hair products to supposedly maintaining my hair growth & health, but that didn’t work out because now I see how dull and dry my hair is. That’s why now I’m more meticulous when it comes to hair products and decided to just go all natural.

Beautiful Hair

Through my research and experiences, I found 5 amazing natural oils that work so good for my hair. No matter what hair problems you have, these oils seem to be able to work their magic on you and fix them right. Of course it takes time before you see the result, but it’s better than having it instant with damaging effect, right?

1. Olive Oil.
Olive Oil
Not only are they good and healthy for cooking but they’re also good and healthy for your hair! Extra virgin olive oil is well-known for promoting hair-growth. It takes care of your scalps and gets rid of any kind of dirt, bacteria or fungus.

2. Coconut Oil.
Coconut Oil
This is definitely my favorite! They smell good and they work wonders, too. Coconut oil is used to fix your damaged hair. Whenever you need extra moisture, you can always count on it. Virgin coconut oil gives more protein to each strand of your hair and at the same time preventing them from falling-out. It makes your hair stronger and silkier!

3. Argan Oil.
Argan Oil

If hair-styling is part of your daily activity, then you should always have Argan oil nearby because it soothes your “damaged” hair. It works by absorbing and hydrating your hair fast, leaving them all smooth and shiny.

4. Tea Tree Oil.
Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil cleans your scalp thoroughly and works as anti-dandruff. If you happen to have itchy hair-scalp, a few drops of Tea tree oil will solve that problem. Plus it’s not greasy, so that’s a good thing, right?

5. Avocado Oil.
Avocado Oil
Last but certainly not least, Avocado oil. The secret lays on the high content of Vitamin E and concentration of saturated and monounsaturated fats that would benefit your hair cuticle. Just like Argan oil, it easily absorbs to your hair fiber and gives them more than just moisture but also healthy glow.
