    Razz Mother's outfits

    hi there ladies! can i just check with you where do you get the outfits for your moms from? especially if the mother is more conservative and don't like too fanciful or bling bling outfits as most dinner wear is likely to be. any ideas? thanks!

    Hi geraldine, my mum went to custom her own dress, according to her own preferences of design and color and length! she's very picky too, such as cannot tube, cannot spaghetti strap (which means 99% of evening gowns cannot buy ler), cannot too short, cannot look too skinny/fat/ reveal ugly figure etc... so the customizing suited her best! it's a shop called lady xiang, at 313. the 2 dresses my mum made are GORGEOUS! she wore it to my sis' wedding and all the guests were so attracted to the dress, all potential bride/grooms' mothers all asked for the contact! hahaha

    princess crystal: the costs of the dresses varied quite a bit, depending on the length / material / design..
