TBDress Style Guide: Pageant Dress Shopping

I'm not a fan of beauty pageants. However, I can't (and I won't) deny that I do keep my eyes peeled for those long evening dresses that the pageant queens wear on-stage. In fact, pageant dresses might be the only reason  I watch them. These dresses have become a good option for women who want to go the extra mile when dressing up for a special occasion. When you choose a lovely long dress, there is little effort needed because the dress does the talking for you. comes to the rescue again, if you are in search of beautiful but affordable pageant dresses. I spent hours to no end browsing through their massive selection - it's so addicting! See below for some of my favorites from the site via this link:

If you need to shop for pageant dresses, here are some guidelines that you need to remember: 

1. Look around as much as you can. Try everything on. There are some dresses that do not look too good on the hanger; you can only appreciate their look and style once you tried them on. 

2. Explore different colors. Some colors work great on certain skin tones, while others don't. If you don't like how a certain colored dress looks on you, try something else. 

3. Know your body. This is the golden rule when shopping for dresses. Choose a style and cut that will compliment your body shape, not go against it.

4. Try the dress on with shoes. Make sure to try on the dress so you know the appropriate length using shoes you intend to wear on pageant night.

Going Bohemian: Dressve

Maxi dresses. I can't even begin to describe how much I love them. As a self-confessed beach bum, I think they are an excellent choice for a day on the beach. But they also deliver effortless style as a street wear. Hence, I wasn't surprised when I got this bohemian maxi dress from Dressve because I also happened to be on a search for a printed maxi (the ones I have are currently solid colored ones). 

The dress is made with cotton blend fabric for maximum comfort and excellent fit. The fabric is therefore cool to the skin during a hot day, which makes it bearable for me to put on this maxi dress even when it was streaking hot the day we shot these photos. The print also does the statement for this dress so I decided to keep my accessories to a minimum.

Do you share my love for maxi dresses? Or is this something you wait to wear until summer?  If you'd like to shop this dress at Dressve, you can find it here. I am eyeing a few other cute dresses from the site too such as this and this. Make sure to check them out for affordable yet trendy pieces!

Transitional Fall Looks by Julep

Even though we don't have fall here in the Philippines, that does not stop me from checking out fall trends and being inspired by them. I do like to pretend we have snow here so I can wear a trench coat or scarf to layer my outfit. Hence, I always grab at the opportunity whenever I can or when I feel a cool breeze come in once in a while. There is one thing that I undeniably love about fall, though - the rich and darker hues. You can see it on every fashion piece possible - coats, dresses, shoes, and even nails!

Hence, I was excited to put together a couple of fall looks from Julep's nail polish collection. Check out my favorite shades from their nail polish collection and the looks I was able to create from these inspirations.

Fall Look for Night

Julep Beverly Nail Polish / Black Bodycon Dress / Beige Long Sleeve Trench Coat / Black Suede Shoes

Fall Look for Day

Which of these fall looks do you like better? Any particular nail polish shade you like to wear more often in the cold season?
