The search for a gown begins

One of the things I love about working here in Singapore is that most companies hold dinner and dance parties each year. I don’t wear makeup even to work, but at least once a year, I love to doll myself up.

In our company, we have a different theme for each year. In 2009, it was “A blast from the past“, 2010 was “Shanghai Night” and last year was “Masquerade“. This year, it’s “Star Awards Night“!

You read my mind! Angelina Jolie’s gown and her leg-baring Oscars pose. I definitely cannot wear that kind of dress nor do the same pose, but I am planning to wear something long this year. I’m too excited that I have started searching the web for great designs. These are my favorites so far:

From JenJen House:

I really love these dresses but shipping might cost more than the gown!

This is from Cupido Gowns and Dresses here in Singapore:

I don’t think I can afford to buy it but maybe I can rent it out.

I found these somewhere but I failed to take note of the website:

I strongly feel like wearing a one-shoulder dress to the big night but I have to do something about my arms. It is impossible to become as thin as these models. But I don’t want my arms to look too fat in the photos. The party will be on May 18th so I have a month to do something about it. Wish me luck!


Let me know what you think :)
