I love the chance to get dressed up! Whether it is for a wedding, a party or for a work event, I always jump at the chance to put on a cocktail dress and feel glam for the night. The whole process is fun for me — From finding the perfect dress, to doing my hair and makeup, and putting on a pair of heels.
Whenever I have a reason to get all dressed up, I get so excited to start the search for the perfect outfit for the occasion. This season, I have a few fun events happening that call for cocktail / formal attire, and I am already on the hunt for the perfect dresses (other than the one I am wearing in the photos above, which I adore). While I can definitely get behind a simple and classic silhouette, I am way more into a dress that also has some kind of wow factor and that highlights my personal style. The dress doesn’t need to be crazy expensive or over-the-top; but small details or embellishments like a dramatic sleeve, a sheer panel or a perfectly placed ruffle are things I look for to make the dress special.
Above all, I always want to find a dress that suits my personality, and that I feel good in. I think that confidence is the most attractive thing that a woman can wear, and if you can find a dress that you feel like a million bucks in, you will light up the room!
