  • Easy Dresses for Every Season

    Summer has just begun, but we must look forward to the upcoming seasons in order to make our wardrobe work overtime. In your closet, you may already have some easy dresses for every season that you've overlooked. Like that favorite summer dress you just can’t live without? If you could wear it all year long you would, right? With a bit of creative styling, you can! Layer and combine texture and pattern in an artful way to extend the life of your most cherished pieces.

    The key to carrying over lightweight dresses into the colder months is to keep things simple. This can also work with heavily beaded dresses or cut-out dresses. To have the greatest success, a short body hugging dress works best as a base for your cooler weather accessories. Keep casual cocktail dresses, either in prints or in solid colors, in mind for this application. Easy dresses cut in simple forms and light fabrics make versatile additions to your closet.

    Mixing it Up With Some Hot New Styles

    Easy Dresses - Sherri Hill 50146 Strapless Floral Black and Pink Print Cocktail Style Sherri Hill 50146 Strapless Floral Print Cocktail Dress

    Sherri Hill 50146 is a great example to illustrate how to pull this off. A bold graphic floral print doesn’t have to be confined to summer or spring. Since this dress has a strapless sweetheart bodice, it would go well with a solid color cardigan, solid knit stockings, and a pair of biker boots that hit just below the calf. This gives off a look that says sweet but edgy. Playing with contrasting textures is a great way to emphasize the best of each piece. The satin-like finish on the dress against a knit fabric can look sumptuous and rich. Depending on the color cardigan you chose, you can pop one color out of the floral pattern. A pale pink or a bold fuchsia makes for an interesting statement. Putting leather boots with this look makes it feel like fall, but keep them simple. The main focus is the pattern design on the dress. Neutral earth tones go well with this look. Deep blues or slate grays are colors that could pair well with this cocktail dress. Continue reading

    Black Tie Evening Gown Sherri Hill 32292For a black tie wedding, we're all about one of our brand new Sherri Hill looks, Sherri Hill style 32292.

Maxi dresses like this one are so perfect for summer weddings for when the wind kicks up by the shore.

  • Sparkle Like Miley Cyrus at the 2015 Met Gala for Prom

    The Met Gala is the one event that has been known for celebrities attempting to one-up each other for the best red carpet looks. It's held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, so it's completely understandable why this red carpet event would encourage more 'artistic' fashion looks. Every year, there's a theme based on an exhibit at the museum, and this year the attire is based on the exhibit, "China: Through the Looking Glass," which is all about the country's influence on Western fashion. Sounds like a fashion night to remember to us! And, it certainly was.

    The red carpet fashion went to the extreme, like Sara Jessica Parker's fiery red headdress, but also kept things simple and classy, like Lorde's long sleeve velvety blue gown. One of our favorite looks of the night met somewhere in between: Miley Cyrus' dress! Miley has been known for her more controversial looks, but lately at red carpet events, she's been choosing some very classy looks with just the right amount of edge, and we think her Met Gala dress walks that fine line perfectly.

    Miley Cyrus 2015 Met Gala

    Miley wore an Alexander Wang dress with stunning crystals throughout, a high neckline, long sleeves, and deep cutouts that showed off the curves of her body. While we wouldn't recommend such a deep cutout dress for anyone but celebrities trying to make a statement on the Met Gala red carpet, the cutouts did balance out well with the long sleeves and high neckline.

    Jovani 24039

    For a similar sparkly side cutout look with long sleeves and a high neckline to balance it all out, go with Jovani 24039. Not only does it feature all the major points of the Miley Cyrus Met Gala 2015 dress, but it's got two extra details to bring the whole look together: a keyhole opening and a beautiful crystal adornment at the waist of the dress. It's definitely a dress that's not only worthy of prom, but of any red carpet event!

  • Paris Hilton Wears Mac Duggal In Her New Video Come Alive!

    Paris Hilton's newest single "Come Alive" finally came out on July 15, 2014, and we're loving it! The song is so much fun, and the video is so whimsical, with Paris frolicking in an open field, hanging out on a cloud, swinging on a swing full of beautiful flowers...and there's even a unicorn and a rainbow! Check out the video here:

    http://youtu.be/6KXwYjG8txo

    We love the chorus and overall message:

    "You make me smile, you make me dream, you make me feel alive. You make me dance, you make me feel, you make me come to life, you make me come alive, you make me feel alive."

    Who wouldn't want to be with someone who made you feel that way?? And of course, Paris looks as gorgeous as ever with her diamond encrusted nails and flower filled hair. There's one other reason we're digging Paris' look, though: did you catch her wearing one of our favorite dress designers in the video? She rocked Mac Duggal style 3908A in the part of the video where she's with the unicorn!

    Paris Hilton in Mac Duggal 3908A in "Come Alive" music video!

    Mac Duggal 3908A is a fully sequined, high fashion gown with an open back that looked absolutely fabulous on Paris! The sequins on this gown had Paris sparkling perfectly within her video, and really helped her "come alive!" The whole scene with her in the sparkly Mac Duggal gown, with the unicorn and rainbow in the background looked like something out of a dream!

    MacDuggal 3908A

    While the color that Paris wore in the video is no longer available, Mac Duggal 3908A is also available in a show-stopping Peacock color, which you can see above. It's definitely the perfect way to feel like a celebrity at Prom or your next formal event!
