Because 1+1 = 2?

Tight budget? This is the fashionable way out without THE price.


The secret to a successful Christmas Party Dress is to keep it as humble as possible, as polite as possible but still as stunning as you can be. Read on.

For those of you who always feel pressured to pick the right Christmas Party Dress, don’t be. Yes, there are lots of choices out there, but here’s how:

– Details : Asymmetric line will give a modern touch to the whole look.

– Fabrics : Stay out of cotton which screams b.o.r.i.n.g. Instead, opt for lace, chiffon, silk or anything in between that say c.o.u.t.u.r.e. 

– Colors : Black is fine if you’re comfortable with the slimming effect, but try another color for the sake of Christmas. The latest color, teal, will also give similar slimming effect plus a lady like look. Or go for metallic, it is time to shine subtly. 

– Length : Keep yourself free of stares for wearing mini dress. Especially, if you have to visit older (read: parents or in-laws) relatives. Knee length is the best choice, anyway, it’s easier to sit without having to pull your dress all night (it’s not a nice gesture, ladies).

– Fit : Put a rest on your body-con dress. This is not the right time to put it on. Loose dress is also a big no-no’s, as you might look sloppy and unprepared. Choose a fit to your body dress, which will give a sophisticated look, and still comfortable to wear. Remember all those Christmas menus that we have to consume later, though.

These will be the first nail lacquer collection from Oscar de la Renta. Celebrating Fall 2012, these limited edition trio of colors, that were shown earlier this year on Oscar’s fall runway, called Red Carnation, Aubergine and Larimar. I wonder who’s the lucky 700 who got these elegant nail colors (US$22 each) since the brand’s only produced exactly 700 bottles.


Pastel colors might be out for Fall/Winter 2012, but it sure resurface again for Resort 2013. Seen on hair from the runways such as Oscar de la Renta, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Chanel, get ready to inject some pastel colors to your mane.
