Dressed To Kill......

While still at logger heads over my condo makeover, looking for the right colours for my kitchen cabinets and walls, I have been busy the last few days with another part of my makeover. That is to find the right formal evening wear for a wedding dinner this weekend.

As this wedding dinner is quite special because it is right in the heart of the capital city in a 5 star hotel, I do not want to look like a drappy old lady in front of the city socialites or even worse put my host to shame if I do not do justice to the word " Formal Attire" as printed in the invitation card. So off I went looking for the right evening wear and the right shoes and evening bag to match..........


And I have been dreaming to look like this........



or something like this........




As I cannot wear high heels I had to shorten my gown to this...



so I might look something like this.............



With shoes that suits me like these..................


And an evening bag like this...............





Plus a black crochet shrug like this...........




With a glittering belt that cost me a fortune like this......


I am all ready dressed to kill or is it to please everyone including myself or do I look like a millionairess among the crowd.......

i agreed with little corner of mine... but why cannot wear high heels?

Sweet Jasmine said...

little corner of mine - *Giggle* ...so..sorry for teasing ah..couldn't help my self from posting this up...coz it is my very first time wearing a dress after a decade of wearing pants. I do not even own a skirt in my wardrobe. The reasons can be found in my posting on Health- rheumatoid arthritis if you have not notice. Still think I have to bear with some discomfort wearing these shoes.
Want me to see me all dress up...then you'll have to use yr imagination or wait til this weekend and see if I can get a good shot of myself all make up like in my dreamzz or else....??

Sweet Jasmine said...

new kid on the blog - Wah..you also agree with LCOM...cannot reveal no or else I 'll be on the spotlight this weekend..he.he. My host and some relatives also comes to my bloglah so cannot be too revealing....

That's a classy evening gown and very suitable as a formal attire.

It would be nice if we could see some photos of you wearing it.

Hi Jasmine, Have you visited my blog? I wonder why your blog in my blogroll cannot be updated? It stays at the post you posted a month ago? Have any idea what to do with it?
Have a nice day!

Big Boys Oven said...

Nightwing said...

Hi there,

Did u take any pictures of the dinner?

Sweet Jasmine said...

beachlover - yeah..this is too sexy for me..so got to cover myself with the shrug. My host herself was stunningly dressed in a red flowing gown. She was too busy moving around for me to get a shoot of her.

Sweet Jasmine said...

eastcoastlife - want the real thing..okie..wait til I shoot a pic of myself. Everybody too busy eating and chatting to notice me among the glittering crowd.

Sweet Jasmine said...

Sweet Jasmine said...

hazel - the gown is lovely..but it will look different when it is dress up by me....

Sweet Jasmine said...

Hi, Molly...I just went to your blog. You should have pasted only the blog web address like http://......blogspot.com which u have to copy paste from the top left hand corner of our blog instead of the blog posting.

Hope this will help. If not ask me in my message box and I'll help u further.

Sweet Jasmine said...

Sweet Jasmine said...

Sweet Jasmine said...

Sweet Jasmine said...

Sweet Jasmine said...

ck lam - Hi, that classy gown will look much better on you though...*wink*.
Anyway,I am much too shy to take pics of myself and those wonderful ladies all dress up as we were also too busy chatting and mingling with the guest and host.

molly said...

Sorry to disturb you, but no matter how I tried, copied paste or manually typed in, with slash behind or without, still cannot, give up!
I think could be because of the boxed you use to create your post???
