Ladies tend to have it  easier than Gentlemen as its easier to get a full white dress than searching for white separates. Men don’t have many options when it comes to all-white. They can wear all summery casual outfit or sharp suited look.If you are invited and you are looking for some formal attire for you date which can go well with your evening dress, consider this latest tux collection by The Black Tux

The Black Tux is the first suit and tuxedo rental that doesn’t feel like one. They design and manufacture the highest quality product with perfect fit. Check out their website for premium suits and Tuxedos The best thing is they just launched their White Jacket Tuxedo that would be perfect for such event (wear white pants instead of black).

Words From Admin Ayesha Ali About UAE DIVAS!

image

UAE Divas is a social group for young girls, mommies and Housewives like me.who are so occupied with their daily routine that they forget about themselves, Divas is a source of Fresh Air for most of us its a platform where we can lent out anything, we support and share our problems,happiness and sorrow with each other. We have ladies from all over UAE, they belong to different countries and Religions but yet they support and respect each other.its more like a family to me,i met some wonderful people here,made wonderful friends who later on turned into my family. i have learned a lot through this medium. Sana, Shaneela and I are a strong team “THE TERRIFIC TRIO”  is responsible for running this group successfully but the real reason behind the success are the wonderful Divas who have supported us through thick& thin. so its a team work of over 4000 Divas which makes Divas so Special and Unique!!!
