Special Occasion - Fashion Statement


Over the years, over the many life experiences and over and over, I have drastically narrowed down on my circle of friends. Treasuring the three to four good friends I believe is more meaningful compared to a wide variety of baggy-baggage-garbage friends. Not to say I am the aloof one or I am an introvert, but I sincerely feel that pretentious friends are emotionally draining and who I let in my life will undoubtedly impact my happiness. Honestly, instead of wasting my time and money with unnecessary friends, I am happy with travelling (Vietnam/Cambodia, Dubai & Chiang Mai/Chiang Rai). Nothing like opening my mind to seeing the various parts and wonders of the world, of course my marriage vows and moments are priority as well (Travelling Solo When You Are Married).

Fewer friends in return means fewer invitations. Weddings, functions, events and get-together, am I dissappointed? Not at all. Believe me. Why should I when I have learned to enjoy and treasure my own company. Weddings by far is one, even if I am invited, I try o stay away. Honestly, I can't put up with all the dramas of weddings these days. Unnecessarily dramas and we, I reckon are automatically, without us realizing, drawn drowned in the dramas. Money giving, dressing in tandem with wedding theme, the worst of it all is, speak about punctuality amongst Malaysians? Nevertheless, when occasions calls for, I do put effort (Sarong Fashion Statement). Why not? After all, style is something we women must not let go. No matter what. Style of course, your own style is a major call for family weddings. Colorful (Saree Fashion Statement), vibrant, love, happiness and all of us coming together for making it special for the bridge and bridegroom. As the aunt during the recent family wedding, I definitely wanted to look good for my age. Mind you, age looking good and not looking young for my age. Both are not the same. Looking good for your age is dressing according to your comfort and shape, in return setting yourself apart from the rest. Whereas wanting to look young for your age means blindly conquering fashion for the purpose of making you feel young. Not advisable. This whole thing about wanting to look young by blindly following the young dolls. Come of it women. I am sure you know what I am talking about? Unless, you are fashion blind, I rest my case.  

Alright, lemme get going. Lemme start with the first function. “Nalangu”/blessing of the bride. Saree would have been fine. I however opted for this tailor made RM120.00 suit from my neighborhood so called Indian boutique. Instead of walking aimlessly around Brickfields and Klang and then getting frustrated if I didn't find anything suited for me. You know what I am talking about? The “come one come all free size” baggy-psychedelic ready-made suits. Not for me. Really. This suit I am donning is inclusive of the material and tailoring cost. I couldn't be happier. 

Styled to another level with accessories I had in my drawer, the rose plastic clip, earnings and bangles, and make up by yours truly too. How do I look? Go ahead. Tell me please. I am all ears.    
For the following day wedding, oh god, I really can't take early morning weddings, but I guess for the sake of family, I shouldn't sulk. To cut short my dressing time, ready made saree, can be done at your tailor, made it easy. Saree and sticking the blouse and cost for ready made saree came up to approximately RM300.00. Another RM80.00 for the chunky earrings and necklace. Make up again by Nava K, I am proud also I did my hair on my own. How do I look Part 2.  


For the finale glamorous ballroom dinner on the same day, I think I went overboard by paying RM300.00 for this evening gown. Really, I did. If only I had the time to spare, perhaps I could have gone around looking for a more affordable outfit. Time indeed was a crisis, and time was the reason why I picked up this gown. Not a regret though. I think, I reckon it is a fit perfect on me? Accessories and the rest came from my existing collection. Neither did I pay for my hair and make-up. How do I look Part 3. . 

All in all, it took me almost three weeks to prepare. I suppose it was every bit worthy. I am happy for myself. My fashion statement did attract the attention of other ladies, but seriously, I can't expect everyone to be like me. Some ladies prefer the simplest look, whereas people like me want to also stand out in their own fashion statement.

  1. Wow!! You look gorgeous in that pink dress.. And I love, love that necklace earring set to go with the saree. You are right Nava, it's better to have few you can rely on rather than having 100 worthless.. I love your writing style more than anything and can't believe I haven't visited your blog for such a long time!
