dressing to the nines

grown up stuff, tips + tricks, fashion, kids fashion

It might probably take a few more years before you see me dress to the nines. If I would have my way I’d rather be dressed in my favorite ensemble of a comfy tee and a shorts, with my worn-out pair of trainers, to boot!

Of course, special occasions later on in life might leave me with no other option but to put one of those uncomfortable dress shirt or that 3-piece suit, for example, on. Some of these occasions include  school graduations, my first communion, or, I don’t know, a wedding or two, perhaps. I might have to be forced to put on my Sunday best just so I won’t look under-dressed or out-of-place in a place teeming with beautifully-dressed people.

I thought weddings are always a good excuse to dress up. I was the ring-bearer to my tita‘s wedding and even when I had to wear this itchy barong for several hours, I absolutely enjoyed the experience + the thrill of walking down the aisle with my family. It was a very traditional Filipino wedding ceremony, now I wonder how Malay weddings go?

If you think about it, it probably isn’t a bad idea to dress up when the situation calls for it. A button-down long-sleeved shirt paired with a nice slacks in darker shade will probably do the trick. Add a pair of loafers {or a dark slip-ons, if I can pull it off!} + I shall be all set!

a lovely wedding dress am sure mum will love

Dressing up for girls, on the other hand, can be rather complicated. I know that apart from taking too long to choose which dress to try out first + buy, they have quite a number of things to take into consideration, like the color and style of the dresses that would best suit their complexion + their body type, or which pieces of jewelry to go with that dress, for instance. It will be quite an episode am sure. + we have not even talked about shoes!

Anyways, I think the key to dressing to the nines successfully is simply to choose the items that not only look good on you, but those that make you the most comfortable, too. Add to that just the right amount of self-confidence + you’ll be good to go!

    Hi,I noticed your new stuff named “dressing to the nines | jared’s little corner” daily. Your story-telling style is awesome, keep it up! And you can look my website about 謝孟媛.

    This just looks lovely! Yes, I do agree being comfortable witb the dress itself does counts a lot too!

    I’ve heard a lot of good things about DressFirst 🙂 But you’re right, we have to think about the other factors too especially if we’re going to buy for a special occassion!

    I know some ladies out there too who doesn’t like wearing formal dresses, they’re more comfortable wearing clothes you’ve mentioned above. I don’t blame you 🙂 I feel the same way too sometimes.

    It’s a lovely dress. I like the color and style but I don’t think it will look good on me because it will emphasize my flabby ams

    Yellow color always makes me smile, lovely dress.

    I love the color of that dress on the picture. It is very dainty.

    If there are girls who don’t love wearing dresses, well, I’m the exact opposite. I always want to look feminine and wear dresses and gowns.

    you’ve featured a very lovely dress..i like the light shade of yellow…wearing it will make me 5-10 years younger:)
