Tutuban's Oh My Gown!12:02 AM
Graduation day is coming and graduates are busy preparing for the last formal get-together before they go their separate ways so everybody wants to look and feel their best for their graduation ball. Gosh, I remember when I had my graduation. I was so intense in looking for my perfect graduation dress. Like most ladies, I wanted a dress that will fit my style, flatter my body and scream my personality (but without breaking the bank).
But buying that perfect outfit for the graduation ball that fits your criteria and most especially your budget is definitely easier said than done. With tons of available gowns and suits in the market and their outrageously high prices, I can already see graduates (and their parents) getting lost in limbo.
But fear not, because hope is not completely lost. Enter Tutuban Center's Oh My Gown! section, - a unique cluster at the ever expanding emporium.
Details after the jump!
The one-stop shopping mecca carries the latest local and international prom, bridal and party fashions suitable for the fairy-tale princesses and Prince Charming around. Romantic clothes range from ball gowns and cocktail outfits for the girls and barong Tagalogs and snappy tuxedoes for the guys.
Dresses come in swirling swathes of tulle and lace, satin and chiffon, organza and silk. There are demure designs for the conservative, while the adventurous can choose the more daring ones. Boys can’t be left behind, of course. They can be patriotic and don the barongs, or go dapper in three-piece suits.
Girls who love the limelight can select the dresses with a sprinkling of crystals, while the modest damsels can opt for the delicately simple creations. No matter what they ultimately want, they can be dazzling on their last get-together as students.
The latest trends indicate a strong preference for solid colors. Tangerine tango is the color of the year, so if it suits your skin tone, I'd say go for it. If not, try as many hues as you want until you find that color to match your perfect ensembles.
Embellishments, heavy patterns and busy details are fine. But I think keeping it simple won’t make you and your partner any less stunning.
Alos, don’t hesitate to ask for assistance from any Oh My Gown! sales attendants. They’d be too glad to help with their expertise. Try the outfits sitting down, raising your arms and dancing a bit. You’d be doing this on your Graduation Ball, Prom Night, Wedding Day and Evening Date, and these exercises would ensure that the outfit you’ve chosen will be comfortable on all levels.
Keep an open mind and try on a wide variety of gown and suit styles. Be ready with the accessories such as clutch bags, studs or pearl earrings and discreet necklaces. Footwear is also important. Comfort should be utmost as dancing will be one of the highlights of the night, whether the prom, the wedding or even a simple date.
You don’t have to worry that the outfits you love are beyond your budget. At Tutuban Center’s Oh My Gown!, the choices are not only varied and stylishly modern and chic, but they are definitely affordable.
Tutuban Center is located along C. M. Recto Avenue in the historic district of Tutuban in Manila.
