Small budget- Hire a dress
Hire a designer dress for a fraction of the cost. Choose from over 1,000 dresses a dress from Self Portrait , Chole or Zimmerman. Keep in mind how long you will need the dressed hired for as you can choose from 4 or 8 days. Not sure about what to choose Glam Corner allows you try 2 different dresses on before you decide for $30.
In an already busy and stressful lifestyle why add pressure by leaving looking for a dress to the last moment. Give yourself at least 3 weeks before the event. This will give you time to make an alterations and find matching accessories
What is underneath counts.
This is not the time to be wearing a frilly bra. I am a huge fan of spanx to smooth everything out but make sure its isn’t digging in or rides up when walking. There are so many different styles on the market and its about picking what is right for the dress. Choose from a slip, Bridget Jones style underwear or all in one piece. Try your dress on with the underwear you will wearing as you don’t want any VPL (Visibile panty line) showing.
Humidity VS Hair
Humidity VS Hair
The summer months can play havoc on hair and the last thing you want is to arrive with frizzy hair. If your bag is too small to take a travel size smoothing hair cream place a small amount in a zip lock bag to take with you.
Keep your bag small.
A perfect outfit can very quickly be ruined by a huge handbag. Keep your bag small enough to fit a phone, lip gloss and keys. When in doubt go for a metallic clutch as it can be used over and over again and will go with most dresses.
Still not feeling you best?
- Get a spray tan. Everything always looks better with a tan
- Book a hair and makeup artist for the event. Nothing like getting some professional help to have you looking and feeling glamorous
- Wear black and team it with great accessories. Keep the focus on the area of your body you love ie got great legs- show them off with sparkling heels or keep the focus at the top with an over the top necklace.
