We girls always have that one dress which we bought it just because we liked it in the store and leave it in cupboard for years because,we don't get a proper occasion to wear and flaunt that one dress to the world. I have quite a few collection of such dresses but recently one of my dress got lucky and I finally wore it,after donkey years of buying it.
Once upon a time ( I think around 5 yrs ago),I saw this peach colour long gown in a store and my heart simply fell for it. be it anything,once the heart make its decision,we girls don't use brains and I'm no different. I just bought it without even thinking whether I get an occasion to wear it. I came home, wore it and showed my modelling skills to my mirror, then the actual question dawned- when will I get to wear this?, for that moment,I consoled myself-'Don't worry,we girls will find an occasion to wear it,if not we will create one'. I couldn't find an occasion or create one for many years.
Long gowns are tricky to wear. Gown itself is a statement and it just cant be worn without a right occasion. Finally, I had a evening formal event invitation and by default I decided to wear my aged long gown.
Neck accessory- Forever new
Foot wear- Paparika
Wrist watch - Anne klein
I follow a rule-'Minimal accessory,when dress itself is a statement'. As you can see, dress has a deep neck cut,so decided to add an accessory to create an illusion distraction. I didn't wanted to go for flashy neck lace as it would take away the element. I had this,peach colour neck lace,which I bought it from forever new store long ago and it perfectly went well with my gown. Ear ring was also from forever new,but it cant be seen in the picture. I just opted for a simple nude colour wrist watch from Anne Klien to give a definition to my long hands. Let me know,how you feel about this outfit in comment section.
Quick Tip- If you are short in height,choose a gown with less volume.
I will write more about how to wear a gown in another post.
