Outfit Review: Taupe-Brown Dress by Ruby Shakel

Hello ladies! Todays outfit by Ruby Shakel is a semi-formal perfect for fall!


Ruby Shakel, a designer based in Karachi, Pakistan, has been in the fashion industry not just locally but also internationally for over twenty years. She focuses on casual, formal and bridal wear and has just recently ventured into clothing for girls with a "Ruby Shakel Juniors" line.

The outfit I received to share with my readers is a taupey-brown A-line lace dress with an embellished neckline and tulle net gathered sleeves. The contrasting embellishment on the front is a mix of thread work, pearls and stones. 

Personally I do believe that the thread work could have been much neater and precise but the overall effect it gives from a distance is pretty. The tiny pearls all over the lace too don't appeal much to me up close but from afar they give a more formal appearance to the ensemble. The color combination is definitely not one I'd go for myself because it is a bit too dull for my taste but it's a beautiful, subtle color nonetheless and looks perfect for fall.



The sleeves are made of a stiff tulle/net material gathered at the ends which works nicely overall. The dress isn't made to my size and didn't come with a label so I'm not sure if this is a free size or what but it fits pretty accurately for a dress not custom made for me except it's a bit loose at the sleeve and armholes. The length is almost full floor length and I quite like it like so. I also really enjoy the full wide skirt of the dress. Overall the cut would flatter most body shapes and the dress is fit for a semi-formal occasion. You can find Ruby Shakel on Facebook here.


A little bit of posing for you guys, hahah.
