Buying an off-the-rack dress from the store is not only expensive, you also run a high risk of clashing with another guest. Why not get more options by shopping online?
Miss Curator has discovered this very elegant Joanna August one shoulder gown at Shopbop.com. This chiffon gown has a flattering one-shoulder silhouette, and an optional sash ties at the gathered elastic waist. Wear this with a pair of strappy sandals, and show off your nice shoulder with your hair up and a pair of big sparkly earrings.
This dress only costs US$260 (HK$2,094) on Shopbop, which offers free international express delivery to Hong Kong. Shopbop also offers other beautiful Joanna August gowns, most of which costs less than HK$2,500.
Los Angeles-based Joanna first came up with the idea of her dress line when she was planning her own wedding in August 2008. Joanna set out to defy the conventions of the typical bridesmaids dress and create designs for her friends that she herself would love to wear, not only as a member of a bridal party, but to any occasion.

Whether you are buying your dress online or at the shop, always allow for at least a week before the event for fitting the dress to your height.
