Sunday, July 20


As briefly mentioned in my previous beauty post, I had my friends 30th Birthday black tie ball to attend at the weekend, which was a great excuse to have a little spurge in one of my favourite retailers, BCBG Maxaziria.

The dress I am wearing is called the Brandy Sleevless Lace-Bodice Gown and cost AED2,000.  I’m not quite sure why I warmed to this dress so much, as yellow isn’t a colour I would typically wear, I prefer nudes and pastels but there was something about this dress that just worked for me.  I was looking for a long gown that wasn’t too ‘poufy’ and I really liked how the skirt part of the dress was slim fitting and light.  The skirt was layered and had a center front drape which split up to the knee. The square, low cut neckline was very romantic and I liked the contrast in textures with the lace bodice and chiffon skirt.  The mini skirt underneath the layers was made from spandex, which was comfy and controlling.
