Luck and Gut-Feel

36 comments
 
I've been asked more than a couple of times when I'm about to pay for an a perfectly nice evening dress, "Where are you going to wear that?" To which I just shrug, because I have no idea, but I buy it anyway. Finding great-fitting plus size dresses in the Philippines is still hard, so the next time you "catch" one that hits all the right places, keep it. You'll thank me one day. :)





Dress: Viola at SM Mall of Asia
Silver/Gray Sandals: Segue
Clutch: Mom's
Bow Ring, Bangle and Bejeweled Earrings: Bazaar

Can you imagine how much I'd regret letting this one go?

Finding the "right one" in clothes, shoes and love takes patience, commitment, a bit of luck and a lot of gut-feel. I've learned through experience that following that instinct could make or break a potential relationship even before it gets off the ground. Now I've committed to this dress even before I knew where we were going together.

If only I was luckier and gutsier in the aspect of Love... lol :)

Hugs,
The Belated Bloomer

  4. You look great in the dress and I love the clutch, super cute! Don't worry I have a lot of evening dresses that I haven't worn yet but i buy them because they are great when i try them on. It's always nice to have a few because you never know when you might wear them. :)

  13. When I wear a nice dress, I go to a fancy restaurant... costing me money in both the dress and the nice restaurant. It's like when you give a mouse a cookie...

    1. Nakaw-eksena eh noh? Haha! :D

      I used to buy per need basis too, but then I realized how difficult and often unsuccessful my shopping trips are when it's already a day or two before the event.
