Faux-Wrap Dress

Hi Friends!

My weekend started on a slightly bad note with an accident at the salon. I hate going to the salon so I only visit my nearest one, once a month for getting my eyebrows done. I have been going to the same salon for the last ten months and everything went smoothly every single time. However, this time the lady must have had something else on her mind because she waxed off at least 1/5th of one of my eyebrows!! Now they are so bad that they do not match each other at all even after her manager tried her best to fix it later. It was quite frightening for me to see my reflection in the mirror for the initial 5-10 I am just hoping my eyebrows grow back soon to their original shape.
A piece of advice - Be very careful about choosing salons, especially if you are letting someone touch your face.
The same day I had to go for a wedding reception. It was of one of my husband's colleagues. It was kind of an informal get-together, yet, I saw the window of opportunity to dress up a bit and so I did! I wore a blue faux-wrap dress with matching shoes, a statement necklace and my favourite clutch. Well...that clutch goes wonderfully with so many outfits that its hard for me not to love it.

The dress had come originally with a thin black leather belt which was not very flattering. This dress already cinches the area above the waist perfectly so I removed the belt. I also unstitched the hoops on the sides of the dress meant for holding the belt.

  2. Beautiful! Sorry to hear about the eyebrow incident though - I've had more than one bad haircut in the past due to a stylist not paying attention so I sympathise completely. It will grow back in no time though I'm sure! x

    1. Thank you Kate! And yes choosing salons are a tricky business. However, these things happen..keeping my fingers crossed till it grows back! :)

  5. This is a beautiful outfit. I love it. :)

  6. That color blue really suits you. I also utilize the same trick of getting ride of the belts of dresses and cutting off the loops. For some reason it seems that belts that comes with dresses are not as cute or more functional than the ones I already own. I few years ago I had a scary experience with an overzealous tweezer and after that I started to get my brows threaded instead. I haven't had a problem since.

    1. Thanks dear! :) I totally agree..most of the times the belts that come with the dresses, actually spoil the look.
      I am still hoping that my eyebrows grow back.. :(
