TMM Fashion: Blue

#fashion #ootd

Yes! Finally, I found the perfect blue dress! I have been looking for a blue dress since the DOVE Summit because I fell in love with the color. I found out that I looked radiant and glowing in the color blue. And not just any blue! Not pastel, neon, or navy -but straight out BLUE.

I looked everywhere, but no one carried a plain blue dress. They were either printed or had some weird cut. So I gave up on looking for the illusive dress. One bored afternoon, I was stalking people in Facebook and came across an ad for Zalora Philippines so I clicked it.

I admit, in the past, I have always been skeptic about online shopping in Manila because let's face it, our mail system is not exactly trustworthy. I only shopped online at eBay, Amazon, and other online sites in the USA and have the items ship to a local address in the US.

I was "window" shopping at Zalora and clicked dresses under women's clothing and lo and behold, I found the perfect blue dress! I didn't even hesitate for a minute, I clicked "ADD TO CART" along with 2 other items. Hee hee... These wedge shoes and the studs wrap bracelet that I am wearing in this outfit post! Let me get to the deets later.

I tell you, I am happy with Zalora's delivery service. But our local couriers are actually quite efficient, my loot arrived in just a day! I am also impressed how much fashionable dresses, accessories, and most especially shoes are in Zalora, I was am hooked!


The dress is made from a stretch polyblend material. Something I never thought I could wear because it tends to be unforgiving when it comes to wobbly bits. But the tiered cut of the dress hid the flaws that is located in my mid-section.


I just love the mesh detail at the back! I wore my sticker bra instead of the traditional bra so that the detail will be unscathed.



I am loving this tour bracelet as well. It goes with everything and anything!


I am into studs right now because they remind me of Valentino. These wedges come in black too but I figured gray will make the legs look longer.





Everything in Zalora is affordable and of high quality. To this day, I continue to shop there because they have new arrivals weekly! Sshh... Don't tell Raul! LOL

    1. You look super fab here! I love your fashion posts. I love that you are giving ideas to women with curves. Sometimes, I get tired of browsing on fashion blogs that only cater to skinny girls. Glad that I was able to meet you at the BDJ Fair. :)

      1. I know what you mean... I got tired of looking for outfit ideas that only cater to skinny women, and it's giving the younger generation the wrong perception of what REAL BEAUTY is :) Women with curves should embrace their God given curves, because curves are sexy! ♥ It was lovely meeting you too! Hope to see you again soon! Thanks for dropping by ♥
