FALLING IN LOVE WITH : DZINE COUTURE

Hiya Poutlings!

With the likes of Pintrest and Facebook Pages sharing images from all over the world it is sometimes really hard to keep track of the things that are available to the average girl looking for a dress be it for a matric dance, a wedding, a cocktail party or a gala event.

I have been watching DZINE COUTURE for a while now, and all I can say is that every single item they have I absolutely LOVE. The elegance of the evening dresses, or the exquisite designer dresses.

Check out some of my favourites!

Matric Dance / Prom DO’s & DON’Ts

 You obviously want to look your best as it’s a night you’re going to have in your mom’s scrapbook album forever, so take some advice from us and make sure you cover the do’s and stay away from the don’ts all night at your Matric Dance!

Do: Bring a Hot Date

Or if he isn’t particularly good-looking, just make sure his teeth are white, his hair is gelled and his suit is clean, because there’s no worse accessory than a gross date! He will taint your photos (and the memory) of the night forever! *insert psycho music here*

Don’t: Forget to Shave your legs

You’ll be dancing all night, so make sure your pins are in tip-top shape! You don’t want to look like a tarantula on your big night, now do you?

Do: Wear a flattering dress

If you’re a pear shaped girl, don’t do a mermaid dress. If you’re top-heavy, don’t show too much cleavage. If you’re skinny, don’t wear something shapeless. If you’re bigger, don’t wear too many frills. Yes, it’s a hassle to get the right dress, but if you dress for your body type you will look and feel amazing. Tip: Look for a celebrity with a similar body type (and don’t kid yourself, don’t choose someone obviously the wrong shape) and see how they dress on the red carpet and copy the look.

Don’t: Cake on the makeup

I’ve seen where girls look as pale as ghosts or just plain dirty in their Matric Dance photos. Go easy on the foundation and powder; don’t overdo it because nobody is going to think you look sexy if you look like a geisha!

Do: Check Youtube for hairstyle ideas

Whether you’re going for something funky or elegant, check Youtube for the best looks. You’re already spending so much money (whether it be yours or your parents’) on the dance and the dress, so why waste on a hairdresser if there are so many options on the internet? Although, if you know you have two left hands, rather get a friend or your older sister to help you with this.

Don’t: Wear too much fake tan

You’ll embarass your date and your friends if you end up looking like an Oompa Loompa or Oros on your Matric Dance, so go easy on the fake tan and remember to wash your hands after applying!

Do: Work on your pose

OK, so now you’ve got the dress, the hot date, the pretty makeup, the great hair and the nice tan and you pose like a pornstar. No. This won’t work at all. Stand in front of the mirror and practice your elegant pose. Work out which pose it right for you. Again, look to celebrities for inspiration. You may feel like a real twit at first, but you’ll be happy you did it when you look like princess in your photographs! And besides, nobody wants to see you squeeze your girls in your mamma’s scrapbook…
