“Shimmy shimmy yay, shimmy yay, shimmy ya…Swalla la la”…. How groovy is that song ?
Hi there, are you gearing up for a party this weekend ? I surely am. In Goa the dance fever has caught on like wildfire. Salsa, Jive and many other dance forms are getting recognition. So, if you’re in town this weekend, then head to the popular bistros & clubs in North Goa
This brings me to today’s topic… “Saturday Night #LBD Look”
Have you ever experienced the dilemma of not knowing what to wear at a party ? or choosing right pair of shoes to go with it ? Well you are certainly not alone in this. We all have that “Little Black Dress” as a go to option, but today we are going to try things differently.
After browsing through my wardrobe back and forth for hours, and despite my mom’s constant nagging of me having way too many clothes, I managed to pick two great looks that came out as winners.
In today’s post I shall be discussing the first look which will definitely dazzle you.
- H&M Party Dress :
To start off, are you a fan of shimmer? Currently fashionistas and celebs are going ga-ga over the shimmer collection of highlighters and blushes in the market. This got me thinking … I’ve always enjoyed experimenting with my clothes, for this look though, It felt apt to let my dress do all the talking…
I’m a huge fan of H&M as a brand and own quite a few pieces (you will get to see more in my future blog posts). It wasn’t easy to select the piece of shimmer I wanted to flaunt, but this one really stood out. The neckline is very sultry and the dress also comes with a tie back which adjusts the dress to fit perfectly ! This definitely would qualify as a show stopper outfit at the parties.
When picking a dress for a party night, try not to go for dresses below knee length so that you can dance and move around comfortably. Maybe try on a dress with a high side slit to show off those well-toned legs. …This is one of my favorite party dresses so far.
In this look I’m wearing a lovely pair of pumps by “Koovs.com” which I had purchased a while ago and are very comfy to dance in.
- Footwear Options:
I’ve always enjoyed wearing a high pair of heels or stilettos to parties and formal events. Just makes you look smarter and adds a few inches to your existing height.
I am a comfort freak so I have 2 options (Always! ;)) hey my feet hurt too !
So if I’m the one driving down to the party my personal choice is a pair of flats to drive there safely and then slip into this sexy pair for rest of the night!! If your feet ache with heels yet you wanna dance then the flat pair comes in handy too.
To complete this look I’ve added a pair of black danglers. You can pick something similar or opt for golden hoop earrings as well, but I believe a really chunky pair with a little bit of gold / silver can do wonders for such nights.
- Your Stresses :
Leave your hair if you’re not going to sweat it out much, else try some cool updos that can keep your hair in place and let you enjoy dancing.
- The Bag:
We ladies are all about accessorizing at a party and no party is complete without the right bag!
We can’t leave our cards and monies behind now, can we? So here’s a perky gold “clutch” from label life with a tassel detail to complete the look.
- Make Up:
I keep my makeup light and more towards nude shades for a night out but this also depends on the Outfit. In this case since my dress is the hero of my look, I don’t want to over do the look by wearing a bright lipstick.
I’ve also tried my hands at a Smokey eye in the above look, and it’s very easy to follow , yet if you have any trouble, allow me to help you with a step by step tutorial by Cosmopolitan
It’s time to hit the dance floor now… I Hope Material Girl has helped you get a shimmery upgrade for your weekend party.We aren’t done yet, I have another striking look to discuss but thought to keep that as suspense until next week (I’m watching way too many Indian tele-soaps ;)). I’ll be back soon to spill the beans on something BLOCK & BOLD!
