  • Accessorizing Your Formal Dress for Halloween

    Halloween is a great excuse for you to go over the top. But why buy a costume when you can use an outfit from your closet...or get those clothes you've been wanting? Just by adding a few accessories to your favorite dress, you can instantly be part of the Halloween spirit and have the dress to wear again any time of the year (without the Halloween accessories of course)! Read on to see how we added some accessories to some classic formal dresses to make them ready for Halloween!

    Little Black Dress

    You can get great use out of any black dress. This Clarisse black one shoulder hi-lo dress is one of our personal favorites (style 2174). Just add kitty ears, a witch hat, or vampire teeth, and you're all ready for Halloween! The real bonus, though, is that a Little Black Dress can be used for so many different occasions that you'll never run out of places and reasons to wear it.

    Dress: Clarisse style 2174

    Shoes: Night Moves by Allure Style Divine

    Purse: Touch Ups Heather

    Fringe Dress

    The fringe dress has been a very popular style lately. The look is taken from the 1920s flapper style, so with this in mind, this type of dress is great to turn into a flapper girl outfit!  This black Mac Duggal fringe cocktail dress (style 3479T) and Touch Ups Peacock high heals are perfect to be a flapper girl.

    White Dress

    White formal dresses are always stand-out pieces at any event. For Halloween, just add wings and you can be a beautiful angel! One of our favorite white dresses is the Mac Duggal style 6383N, which has a beautiful  fully sequined top and layered ruffles of chiffon on the skirt. The Sizzle by Coloriffics Inez high heals are a great way to add some extra glitter to the outfit!

    Red Dress

    Red dresses are always a sexy choice. And for Halloween, where there's a white dress for an angel, there must also be a red dress for the devil. Turn this La Femme 18110 cocktail dress into a devil by adding horns and a tail.

    Dress: La Femme 18110

  • Fall’s Favorite Color: Oxblood!

    It may have a creepy name, but oxblood (you can also call it burgundy) has been all the rage lately, and for good reason; it takes the classic color red and gives it a new spin. The dark, rich shade adds a sense of sophisticated edginess to any outfit. It is also a versatile color when it comes to pairing it with an outfit; you can let oxblood be the stand-out color and wear it with neutrals like tan, gray, black, or brown, or let it take the back-seat and wear it with patterns like leopard print and houndstooth.

    If you are looking to try the color in a more subtle way, it also works great on nails or lips, or as an accessory to your favorite outfit on a bag, jewelry, or pair of shoes.

    Finding an oxblood-inspired dress will definitely give you an air of class and sexiness at any formal event. When wearing oxblood to a formal event, pairing it with neutral accessories will help to let your dress stand out amongst the crowd. The color looks great on both shorter and longer dresses, so pick one that you really love! Check out our formal dress choices below to rock the oxblood look.

  • Hi-Lo Dresses for Homecoming 2012

    Homecoming 2012 hi-lo Dresses

    Since the end of last year, hi-low dresses have been trending worldwide.  These flirtatious frocks feature a circular hemline that hangs low in the back and high (usually above knee level) in the front.  Since this style allows your legs some freedom, it’s perfect for a day strolling around town or a night on the dance floor.

    Hi-lo dresses have become a popular summer trend for casual wear and have been spotted on celebs walking the red carpet at formal events.  The hi-lo skirt is so versatile it seems wearable for any occasion.  A simple hi-lo dress with a belt can be worn with sandals and a floppy beach hat for a glamorous summer look, while a frivolous version with a bit more flair can be paired with sexy stilettos for any formal event.

    If you’re a fan of the hi-lo dress trend, there’s no doubt you’ll need the best style this Fall.  In order to rock this look for Homecoming 2012, make sure you find the perfect fit for you.  If you want to show off a lot of leg, aim for a hi-low dress with a ruffled skirt, which will act like an elaborate frame as you strut your stuff.  Going for a simpler, more classic look?  Check out an A-Line hi-lo dress that hangs delicately from your body.

    When it comes to accessorizing your hi-lo dress for Homecoming it’s all about the shoes.  The raised hem at the front of dress means your shoes will definitely get noticed.  Make sure you pick a pair of high heels that fits you well and goes well with your dress.  Try to match the color of your hi-lo dress or find something complimentary.  Silver, black, or gold styles are usually a great choice, depending on the color of your gown.

    This Homecoming season hi-lo dresses will become the most sought after dresses.  It's always tough picking out a Homecoming dress, having to choose between Prom Styles and less formal cocktail dresses.  With a hi-lo dress, you get the best of both worlds, in a style that's formal and fun.  The unique trend is hard to find though, so if you’re looking for a hi-lo dress that will turn heads at Homecoming 2012, you’d better start looking now!

  • Floral Prints – Don’t You Forget About Me

    Floral Print Dress ClassicDecorating our clothing with flowers has been a tradition for hundreds of year.  Originating in Asia, large floral prints on women’s kimonos represented natural beauty and femininity.  Europeans, fascinated by this culture, adapted floral prints for their own society during the renaissance.  It became a fashion statement for upper class women to wear dresses made from luxurious fabrics covered in beautiful flower patterns.

    During the 1940s, floral dresses became the most popular trend.  Looking back to that time, it’s impossible not to picture women without their wavy curls, pearl earrings, and flower printed frocks.   How Retro says that “As fashion seasons come and go, floral dresses rise and fall in popularity yet have remained a constant in women's clothes.”  The delicate qualities of the flower makes wearing a floral print seem truly feminine.

    “This season is all about the power of flower print,” announced Jovani in their recent newsletter.  Runway trends are all about pastel and neon colors, with “garden-inspired” prints being used in new and unique ways.  Whether you’re looking for a casual dress, or something more formal, you’ll be able to find a floral dress for the occasion.  Pick an accent color from one of the flowers to match your accessories and makeup, and your outfit will be a hit.  It looks like this classic style is here to stay!
