Short Post: My Silver Lining

Hardships and challenges are inevitable in life. We need to go through them to become better, wiser. They give spice in our lives and make us appreciate the little things more. 

However, there will always be times when such obstacles are too much for us to handle alone. We need other people to help us get through it. But sometimes, we need to go through them alone to become stronger. So, don't give up even when the challenges you face seem to be unending. Stand up and face it with all your might. As they say, there is always a silver lining beyond the clouds. Indeed, there is. 
Dress: c/o Milly Bridal | shoes: gifted

Because it's prom season again, I know many of you are scrambling to get your prom dresses ready. For those who haven't had their proms yet, Milly Bridal offers some of the most beautiful prom dresses you can ever find (like this dress I'm wearing!). I swear, I couldn't even choose one as I was selecting the dress because of the extensive amount of beautiful prom dresses they have. 


If you ask my opinion, I always find white dresses to be the best color option when selecting formal dresses. They look great whatever the occasion is and it has the ability to make you look really classy and elegant. White also complements varying skin tones so it will definitely suit anyone! 

The things I like most about this dress aside from the color are the slit and the low-cut back. I find the former sexy in a subtle way and the latter is daring but not too revealing. I think this is the perfect dress if you want to look sexy without going overboard. It gives a subtle hint of sexiness whilst maintaining class and elegance. Plus the bejeweled straps, back, and front details make the dress look more glamorous - perfect for any formal events!

When it comes to dresses like this, I think it is always best to accessorize less (think Oscar fashion and realize how less jewelries celebrities are wearing). The dress has already enough sparkle and adding too many fancy jewelry might make you look like a walking disco ball. It is okay to wear a few like a cuff or a pair of earrings, for example. The dress itself already has enough jewels to make you look noticeable without going over the top. 






How would you style formal dresses?
