Five days ago, I received an invite from Ipanema to attend the Philippine Fashion Week at SMX Convention Center on October 29, 2011. The email said, “We are looking forward to seeing you on this BIG FASHION EVENT wearing your chic style!”
I thought “wearing your chic style” meant coming to the event donning something fashionable. I was wrong, however, because when I opened the attached invite, I found out that the occasion requires semi-formal attire.
Because I’m a work-at-home mom, shirts or blouses and jeans are my usual getup. This means I don’t have anything to wear for the Philippine Fashion Week, and I had to look for one fast!
That’s exactly what I did last Sunday. I was in the mall for several hours to find the perfect semi-formal dress (and of course, shoes!) for me. I’m telling you, it wasn’t easy! I walked from one shop to another to find the style that I was looking for.
Buying mother of the bride dresses is definitely easier than finding the ideal semi-formal dress for me because all I need is to visit Gray & Osbourn website. They have a huge collection of fabulous wedding dresses, shoes and accessories, so choosing the perfect wedding outfit is super easy.
