What I Wanted to Wear Before

What would you feel if you were invited to attend a Ball? Just the thought of "The Ball" makes me giddy already. What more if I am going to attend one. That surreal feeling will always give me butterflies in my tummy for sure!

I know most of you have already attended a Ball before, may it be a Graduation Ball, Prom, etc. Could you share what happened then? And of course, tell me what you wore and how you felt about your dress! :)

This time, I will share my experience when I attended our Graduation Ball when I was in High School. Back then, I was very excited to finally experience that event. (Sorry if I sound so OA like I was living in a cave to be excited for that event. Don't blame me, we didn't have Prom. The Grad Ball was the counterpart of it so yeah, now you know. Haha!) I was like: Yay! I am finally going to wear my dream dress. And I kept my hopes up until I realized that I don't have enough time to talk to a couturier to design my dress or even look for a beautiful dress so I ended up in a rushed-shopping-day with my mom. I really wanted just a simple dress but still an eye-catcher, of course in pink! Yeah I found a simple pink dress. When I fit it, it was nice. Come that night of the event, I was like: Why did I choose this dress? o.O Imagine myself looking frustrated in a night that should be fun and exciting. Just because of the dress (and my hair), my night was ruined :(

Dresses are really important to me. What I wear to an event really matters to me. The dress that I should pick should really make me feel beautiful when I wear it. It should give confidence to me. Lucky are those who found the perfect dress ahead of time.

And because I don't want you to feel what I felt before, I am going to share with you a collection of A+ dresses from Picked Looks. Why A+? A for Awesome designs and another A for Affordable. Yes that's right! The dresses you will see below are some of the cheap ball dresses from Pickled Looks.

Let these dresses speak for me! ♥

If only I could have every dress included in this post, I would grab them, seriously!

Evening Dresses NZ

I know you have already seen several posts from me about evening dresses but this one might help you, especially to my readers from New Zealand!

Remember my previous post? offers a wide variety of dresses for different occasions. May it be bridesmaid dresses, evening dresses, long and short dresses, they have it all. The store has very fashionable and modern designs that any girl would love to wear for a very special event.

New Zealand readers (if I have any lol), this is a good news for you! This online shop is based on your country. What's the hitch? It will be accessible for you. And easier I may say! To my local (Philippine) and other international readers, don't worry. This will sound good to you as well because they also ship internationally! Yes you read it right! Nice, isn't it?

 How come this has been a good news to you? Well, aside from looking for the beautiful and elegant dresses in their store, purchasing from them will give you less hassle. If you are still not convinced,  here are the perks when you choose Pickled Looks:

  • Fast Delivery. Let's admit it, when we hear or read in an online shop's "About Us" Page telling the customers that they ship internationally, we all have doubts in receiving the parcels earlier as expected. Of course every customer wants a fast delivery so they would really prefer online shops that have it. Let's thank Pickled Looks for this.
  • 30 Days Return Policy. Many online shops do not have this kind of feature so I am glad to know that has this policy. Customers will really benefit from this due to the fact that buying from online shops is like a guessing game because we don't get to fit and check for damages of what we buy. 
  • 100% Safety Order. What does a customer asks to herself/himself when considering buying from online shops? Of course its safety; if the shop is legit. With Pickled Looks, you will feel secured, confident, and at ease.
  • More Choices for the Better Life. I think this is the shop's tag line and personally, I like it.
  • High Quality with All Standards. Check! Check! Check! Every customer would really love to have their beautifully-designed parcel with the best quality. And this online shop will give it to you.
The search for Evening Dresses NZ is done. Just visit and see it for yourself! :)

Great Things Take Time

Sometimes, life is about risking everything for a dream no one can see but you.

At seven, my relatives asked me what I want to be when I grow up and I said proudly with excitement, A Doctor! At ten, I always ask for colored pencils and a sketch pad, trying to design clothes and houses. At twelve, my teacher asked us to draw in a blank sheet of paper what we want to be in the future, and I can still remember myself, drawing a professional-looking woman holding a microphone and a notepad in front of a camera. At sixteen, my friends asked me what course I'll be taking in college and I said uncertainly, uhm, I like to cook, but really don't know how.

I really had a baffled mind growing up. Whenever someone asks me what I want to do in the future, I am always like ".....". But now, the question has changed to what do you want to do after college? There is a huge difference between the two. It's easier to hear someone asks what do you want to be in the future? than what do you want to do after college?

Tips to Flaunt an Evening Dress

Many girls think that to stand out in an event, they need to wear the so-called perfect evening dress. Little did they know, it is not just about the dress. They should learn how to flaunt it. What is a beautiful dress without the proper way to wear it, right? In this post, I will share some tips on how to flaunt evening dresses. And I am hoping that this will help you in any possible little way.

Of course you have to know what length fits you well. You should not wear dresses that are not according to your height. If you're petite, I suggest you try to avoid long dresses. I'm sure you don't want the dress to overcome your body, right? But if you really want to get that long dress, try to wear high heeled shoes to add length. If you're tall, there's nothing wrong. You could wear any length you want, may it be short or long dress. BUT if you choose a short dress, make sure that it is not TOO short for you, okay? Perks of being a tall girl.

Yes. The color affects your look. If you are morena or dark-skinned, avoid wearing dark colors. Choose light colors because it will accentuate you. If you have fair skin, any color will do. In my personal opinion, I do not like wearing or even seeing bright-colored dresses in an event. Take this cue from me.

We all know that there are many shops, online and stalls, which sell the perfect dress. Let's face it, not all those shops have the best qualities of clothing. Yes others have beautiful designs but when it comes to quality, it rushed down to 10%. Of course we want to have that perfect dress. Meaning, with a beautiful design that comes with the best quality. I suggest, you should pay a visit to Picked Looks to see what I mean.

What's a beautiful dress without the confidence? You have to be confident as you walk for you to stand out in the middle of the crowd. This is the best piece you should not forget to bring during the event. With confidence, you'll look stunning! And you might even bump into that cute guy :)

Aviva Dress

It's "Ber" month already! And this is the season of the year again where Weddings and Special Events are most held. They say that -ber months are the most special months among others. I don't know how and why did they conclude that but really, is it? (For me it is, because December is my birth month. Talk about being biased. Yesss counting the days. Or weeks. Or months. Hahaha)

Well, based on my experience, I noticed that most of the brides-to-be would like to celebrate their wedding day on December aside from June. December is such a special month. Not because it's my birth month, though. Hahaha

Okay, let's be serious here.When  it comes to choosing dress for an event, I am very meticulous. I want every detail of my dress is set close to perfection. Who doesn't want to have a perfect dress, right? Every girl dreams to wear the perfect dress. And when you wear the perfect dress, you feel like you are the most beautiful person in the room, world perhaps. It's like, you're a Princess. However, we all know that with a perfect dress comes with a dazzling prize, right? Right? Right!

So when I saw, my eyes dropped because of their collection of beautiful bridesmaid dresses, evening dresses, prom dresses, and wedding dresses! Not just beautiful, but very affordable as well! You like that, huh? Me likey! :)

(This is my most favorite dress of all! Can't you see how chic and elegant it is? The feels! For me, this is one of the most beautiful evening dresses ever made. It's perfect for a very special occasion. The style and the color showed its elegance. If only I've seen this black dress earlier this year, I would have gotten it for myself to wear in one of our  major events in school such as the CEU Mass Communication Awards for Media and the Arts (CMAMA). ) is said to be the world's leading online wedding apparel destination.  Their goal is to provide a one-stop shop for the ladies.
Additional information: Avivadress is a family owned and operated business. They even have their own wedding apparel factory!

If you are the daring type of girl who wants to flaunt her skin, then go for this dress. It's very sexy!
I think this one is perfect for Prom! If you wear this, you will look like a goddess! Definitely a scene-stealer. You will give other girls who are wishing to be the Prom Queen a run for their money. Trust me, this is one of the most beautiful and eye-catching prom dresses you'll ever see!

What more can you ask for? Check out now or else, you will go home crying. Haha! And by the way, I heard they are having a SALE! ♥
