How to select an ideal dress for a special occasion?

When selecting an ideal dress for yourself, there are many factors that need to be taken into a consideration. For instance, you need to consider the occasion you're getting dressed for. If it is a a formal or  a festive occasion, it will require a dress that is more formal and festive. There are events that require us to get dressed up. The advantage of such events is that they often give us an opportunity to feel like a princess. Who doesn't enjoy getting dressed up- at least once in a while? The only thing that sometimes presents a challenge is choosing the perfect dress.

To help yourself narrow down the choice of the perfect dress, you can think in practical terms. What colour suits you best? What colour is best for your skin type? What kind of cut is flattering on you? Answering these questions can help you narrow down your choice. Besides these practical questions, another important thing to consider is what you would actually like to wear. What kind of dress makes you feel great? 

Trends are fun to follow, but if some trend doesn't feel right, you should forget it and go for what you want. Sometimes a more classical dress and cut is what will make you happy.  We all have our personal style and aesthetics. Some people swear by the timeless elegance of black, while others prefer bright or pastel colours. Our mood is an important factor as well. 

In the end, when selecting a dress for any special occasion, you need to think what kind of dress will make you feel beautiful and comfortableHere I presented you with my selection from Homecoming 2017 dresses  . If you're looking for Cheap Homecoming dresses , feel free to check out site as they offer a wide selection of dresses.

What is an ideal dress for you? Do you have an all time classic- some cut or colour that you always prefer or do you pick a dress according to your mood? What does your choice of colour depend on? Do you have a colour you prefer? Do you consider trends when you're choosing a dress? What do you think is the most important thing for choosing an ideal dress for ourselves?

  4. Thanks for the useful tips, Ivana. Really interesting. I love your choice. Beautiful dresses.

  5. Great practical advice! It doesn't matter how amazing a dress is if it doesn't make you feel beautiful and comfortable while wearing it.

    1. thanks Rowena, that was exactly what I meant to is all about how it makes us feel.

  6. Beautiful dresses selection Ivana!

  9. Great tips, Ivana! Trends are also fleeting but something classy can be worn for ages.

  10. Vestidos maravilhosos amei, obrigado pela visita , tenha uma semana abençoada.

  11. Wonderful selection. All these dresses are very pretty :)

  12. Ja uvek dajem prednost žutoj (kakvo iznenađenje) :) iako zapravo volim sve boje, kao i haljine generalno. Od ovih sa slika mi je možda najlepša teget iz dva dela. Baš je divan rad u pitanju, a sviđaju mi se i leđa, kao i ta boja koja se retko viđa na svečanijim haljinama...

  13. Amazing selection! I adore all of this dresses and would love to wear one of this.

  15. Good day
    Read my testimony! Getting ex back after a breakup.
    My boyfriend of a 2year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me once and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: call him/What’s-app: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.

  16. Great tips, Ivana. And I loved the ones you picked. Happy midweek, dear.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.


February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 

I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
