SHOPPING LOVE: the definition of a formal dress + the latest and most beautiful styles.

my dears, today i would like to give you a little lesson about the theories of fashion and dress codes. 

very often when you're browsing through the depths of different online shops you can read about formal dresses. maybe you saw loads of adorable short or floor length dresses with loads of embroideries and beautiful embellishments. and maybe you have asked yourself what exactly defines a formal occasion - and what a dress code in general is defined through.

a dress code is a set of rules governing what garments may be worn together and in what setting. further we can distinguish informal to formal settings.

informal occasions for example would be leisure activities.

formal occasions could be festivities such as weddings, prom evenings, anniversaries or cocktail parties. they could also be gala events, an award presentation ceremony, or a night at the opera house. just think about all the beautiful ladies in beautiful and flamboyant dresses at the academy awards night. the specific occasion now defines what you can wear in terms of dress length, colour, and so on.

i have found some very lovely formal dresses of different length and colour on tbdress.com and today i want to show you my favourites out of this category. 
i'm always in love with mermaid shaped dresses, as well as lace, tulle and many black-coloured styles.

i hope that you like my selection and my little educational fashion unit.

  6. Liebe Dahi,
    du hast ja fleißig gepostet :-) Ich war ziemlich internetfaul und hab die letzten Wochen mehr im off gelebt ;-)))
    Momentan brauche ich kein Kleid, aber du hast hier ein paar schöne rausgesucht, so dass ich mehr als einen Favoriten habe. Werde jetzt mal durch die letzten Posts stöbern. Aber ich schreibe nicht überall, dann hast du nicht so einen Stress mit dem Beantworten ;-)
    LG Naddel

  7. Oh, liebe dahi, sind diese Kleider ab schön - wie im Märchen! Ich trage ja für solche Gelegenheiten in der Regel eines meiner Dirndl, wobei solche Outfits schon auch einen richtigen Charme (!) haben :)

    xx Rena


  8. Wenn man das sieht wünscht man sich mehr Gelegenheiten sowas tragen zu können!
    Und einen größeren Kleiderschrank und ein größeres Konto...
    Das mit dem Dress Code ist wirklich immer so eine Sache, aber ich denke mit deiner Auswahl wäre man für alles gerüstet!

    Liebste Grüße, Ann-Cathérine


thanks for sharing your thoughts with me.
