Fashion – Dress to impress

There are only a few occasions in life where you get to dress like you are going to the Oscars

December is one of my favourite months of the year because all of the holiday parties allow you to dress up in head-to-toe Hollywood glamour.

There are only a few occasions in life where you get to dress like you are going to the Oscars and a holiday party or New Years bash is one of them.

It used to be that you had to be a movie star to dress in a glamorous gown but now the expediency of fashion trends from the runway to the masses has allowed just about anyone to look and feel red carpet ready.

Taking off to the big city in order to get access to beautiful evening wear is a thing of the past, especially when you have a wide selection right here in Victoria.

If you have an event or party to attend over the holidays I highly recommend heading over to Blush Bridal Boutique and Outlooks Menswear.

Blush Bridal Boutique carries a wide variety of evening and cocktail dresses for all occasions. A large selection of the gowns at Blush Bridal Boutique come in up to 90 different colours, so if you have a specific colour in mind be sure to stop by to check out the wide array of gowns and accessories that they have to offer.

Victoria is considered to be casual and laid back when it comes to fashion, however there are plenty of options when it comes to men’s formal attire like Outlooks Menswear. This men’s speciality boutique is a one stop shop for men’s suiting and formal wear. Outlooks’ knowledgeable staff will assist you in finding the perfect suit.

I found the German-made Digel “Move” suit provides a great fit and a cosmopolitan young look.

Looking fabulous for the holiday season has never been so easy.

Do you have a

styling conundrum?
