Disclosure: The Teodora dress was sponsored by Chi-chi
So a couple of weeks ago, I was busying myself at work when *ding* an email popped up in my mailbox. I opened it expecting the usual company humdrum, but the words "company dinner" quite literally leapt up at me. I was duly informed that the event will be held in less than three weeks. THREE weeks!! Holy smokes! Where am I going to get a dress so soon? And shoes? Everyone needs new shoes for an event such as that. Gahhhhh...fret! fret! fret!
But just like magic, I was contacted by Kim at e-tailwebstores asking if I'd like to work with Chi-chi, a company specialising in cocktail, prom and evening dresses. Their offer came just in the nick of time! My weekends were packed and there was no way I could fit in a full-day shopping trip to get a dress.
(Kim, if you're reading this, you're a saviour)
One thing I like about online shopping at websites like Chi-chi is that they provide detailed information on their garments. I was able to look at clear pictures, get the measurements and know the material in just a few minutes. I did all these within the comforts of my home and didn't have to walk 'till my feet were sore trying out dress after dress at random shopping malls.
The dress I chose was this gorgeous bordeaux coloured dress with ruched mesh and diamante details; the Teodora. I am really not quite sure how to differentiate bordeaux and oxblood as they seem pretty similar to me. As oxblood is apparently autumn's hottest colour, I knew I had to wear this!
|Very pretty diamantes|
|Loving the twists|
The night turned out to be a wonderful one and I had lots of fun with my colleagues. I sat at a table full of fun people who were sporting enough to go on stage to play games, cheer loudly and act silly. It always is the company (pun?) that matters the most.
I honestly thought I'd have no more chances to doll up like this once I leave University, but I guess I was wrong. Needless to say, I took lots of pictures that night, but these shall remain private hehe
Here are the little details that complimented my dress:
|5-inch heels from Nose|
|Murua tatt behind ear|
|DIY bling nails with Zoya nail polish in Jem|
|FOTD. Smokey eyes with Sleek Au Natural palette and Rainbow Color lenses in Storm Grey|
