Alex Evenings Women’s Metallic Empire Gown and Jacket

What do you think of this lovely gown? I was at Macy’s today for a job interview so I came and did a little shopping as well. I was looking for a gown for the upcoming ball. The FAAP will be celebrating its 60th year enriching the lives of Filipino Americans in Pittsburgh and “kababayan” in the Philippines, through our 3 Pillars of Charity, Culture and Education, with the theme- “TREASURE OUR PAST” and build upon them to “ENRICH OUR FUTURE”

It is overwhelming to look for a gown especially if i don’t exactly know what kind, style, and designs i am looking for. I tried 6 different style of gown and this Alex Evenings Women’s Metallic Empire Gown and Jacket caught my attention.

I am going to the ball and I’m gonna have the best night by myself.

Honestly I have never been to any formal gathering as I am not comfortable wearing gowns or dresses. Last year I decided to attend to this Filipino party and it was fun. It was impressive to see ordinary people change overnight and look elegant with their fashionably Filipiniana dress.

The Filipiniana Dress is a dress made of Piña fabric, which is hand-loomed from pineapple leaf fibers. Filipiniana dresses are typically worn at formal occasions and nationalistic gatherings to mirror the male’s Barong Tagalog. These dresses come in different styles and variations, some may even carry the butterfly sleeves made famous by several First Ladies of the Philippines.

I wore a casual dress which is decent enough for that occasion. One of the organizer of that event is happened to be a very good person, and she brought back here in the US from the Philippines a lot of Filipino attire. I got lucky because there was one available Filipina blazer. I’m thinking of buying my children a Filipino dress when we get a chance to go back to the Philippines someday.
