Beauty 2 for Tuesday: Fave Fancy Formal Wear for Prom & Wedding Season

In ♥ & Soul, Beauty Tuesday, Community, Health, Home Sweet Home, Public Interest, Relationships, Weekly Wonders, What's Hot, Yours Truly on 04/22/2014 at 22:30

It’s a fancy feast of frills & thrills up in here!

With Proms coming up and many weddings around the corner, I want to show you  how my style has evolved over time through these throwbacks and more recent ensembles from major events.

As you can see, I prefer maxi dresses because I thought that long skirts would conceal my lack of height, but I can lean toward revealing my legs more!

Even though most of these were worn only once, there’ve been a couple that made their way in the rotation twice…

Red, White & Blue sequined Mestiza gown (Filipiniana Gala) ~ frontal view in my Dispo Bio

PIDC-RGV

My Philippine national flag number & my Celtic Cross w/Crown of Thorns (Philippians 4:13) + my DSLR make their debut @ the Ms. PIDC-RGV Pageant ~ caught in action as I catch the action on camera!

Turquoise one-shoulder (sister Joanne’s wedding)

Dispo-Cooley Wedding

My sis wanted all of us bridesmaids to look the same, but I as MOH took it upon myself to add a shawl (to cover my back tat — I thought it was appropriate for the Catholic Church ceremony) & ruching to the skirt of my dress! I wanted the Belle-of-the-Ball from Beauty & the Beast look, so check out my “princess hair”!

Midnight Blue sleeveless satin dress w/ruffled skirt (student Limeya‘s wedding and this year’s Valentine’s Sweetheart Ball) ~ as seen in my Attitude w/Gratitude

Escabarte Wedding

I exposed my back tat this time w/straps + my hair teased & pinned up @ the outdoors wedding & reception + to adopt my golden lab Cami!

The 2nd time around, I wore my hair mostly down & this silver shawl to compliment the bling on the empire waist of this evening gown!

Like the dark blue clutch w/silver chain & sparkly stilettos to match the shimmery shine?

Since this is a long dress, I try to bare my running man tattoo on the dance floor! Maybe my next ink should be the dancing queen!
