HFW MAY 2011 {Day 2: Formal Event}

Tuesday, May 31, 2011





A formal event... is the chance to be glamourous! If I were to attend one I’d wear this one-sleeved Grecian-inspired dress designed by yours truly. I love its elegance and simplicity because it makes it all the more easier to style the outfit according to the type of event (e.g. wedding, dinner, black-tie event)

For this ensemble... I’ve chosen to be quite minimal with my accessories but I would totally pair this dress with chunky jewellery or statement pieces as well. In these photos I’m wearing a luxurious and gorgeous Schanaz Dubai Silk hijab by my fabulous Scarflet sister, Ami Schaheera of Sputnik Sweetheart. I love ‘em and I’m continuously building up my collection of ‘em (if I manage to catch 'em before they get sold out that is!).
