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?

  2. Wow, all dresses are so pretty :)

  3. Nice dresses!

  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.

Wearing the First Dress I Ever Made: A Grey Midi Dress

Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko. 

I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern.  The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …

February recap / sažetak veljače

You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?

 As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.

Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
