Local Shopping: Blush


Summer is fully underway and lots of party invitations, some more fancier than others are sitting prettily on my desk. Naturally the first thing that comes to mind when opening each one, is 
"What will I wear?"
And so I ventured back to my neck of the woods, West Vancouver to check out Blush Occasions' stunning collections of spring cocktail dresses!


 As I've already accustomed you by now to anything that sparkles, it should come to no surprise that I went for the glitziest dresses in the store.

A beautiful cobalt blue dress will always make you stand out in a sea of black!






This dress is as sexy as you'll ever see me. I gravitated towards it because I've always loved wearing white to summer parties. It always looks so good with naturally-looking tanned skinned!



Oh the glitz just screamed to me: "Try me on"
...and sure I did! This dress could be the perfect dress to bring with me to Vegas for my quarter of a century b-day!
This dress has everything I like in a summer dress:  sparkles on a white canvas! The flattering silhouette is the cherry on top of the cake! 
The neckline of this dress really caught my attention! It's like having a beautiful statement necklace on!
For something more young and flirty this dress is my favorite! The texture of it is exactly what I like for dancing till dawn!
 And since I myself have a very important party coming up at the end of the summer ( details will be coming later) I just had to try some long evening gowns as well!

This dress made by Theia, a Montreal-based designer who used to work for the House of Chanel is a dream come true!
But the winner of them all is this minty green Theia Dress. The Grecian silhouette has been a favorite of mine for many years. To me this is exactly how I envision myself at this very important event!
I'm trying not to be such an impulsive shopper anymore and so I left empty handed! But I have a feeling that one of these dresses will be making its way into my closet very soon!

Oh my gosh how did you leave empty handed?

My favourites are the sequined dress with the scalloped details and the white sparkly dress.

I can't get over how amazing you looked in all of them!

The dresses looked so nice, & even better with you wearing them... The sparkles are getting my attention too, I just haven't seen a dress I like, or one that fits me...

XOXO

Blush really is amazing- there are so many dresses there, I don't even recognise some of the ones you tried and I was just there a week before you! I just love the textured dress with the jeweled waistline. So gorgeous!

You saved the best for last..the minty gown is gorgeous!

And from the shorter ones, the third's the prettiest, very glam and very you.

You should definitely go back and pick a winner because you look very good in all of them.

Hugs,

My Fashion Tale said...

Oh wow...these dresses are amazing!!!!! Very hard to choose one! But you look amazing in each and every one of those dresses so any choice is a good choice ;)

Alice in vintageland said...

Omg! If being super hot would hurt you would be screaming in pain! I love all the dresses, but I guess that doesn't come as a surprise. My favorites are: the white curve revealing one, the las vegas little number, the statement neckline black one and the last maxi green one. I don't have words to say how stunning you look and how excited I am for July and us spending A LOT of time together. Kisses:)

What a parade! The white dress would really look incredible at a summer party accessorized with a perfect tan. I also love the grey dress in that interesting texture. The glittery dress fits you perfectly, it has a certain old glamour feel, but the short length makes it so modern. A b-day party in Vegas: that can not be any less than fabulous. :)

Zazuza/Lara said...
