  • Selena Gomez Dazzles at Ischia Global Film and Music Festival

    Selena Gomez once again has shown off her incredible fashion prowess, donning more gorgeous gowns in the past 72 hours than many of us will get to wear in a lifetime.  Gomez, who turns 22 tomorrow (July 22), spent the weekend attending the Ischia Global Film & Music Fest in Italy this past weekend and definitely did so in style.

    Gomez kicked things off by attending the premiere of her new film Rudderless wearing a sheer polka-dot maxi dress with oversized pockets by Emanuel Ungaro.  The look proved to pull off the difficult feat of being both sexy while fun at the same time.  A pair of black Casadei pumps completed the ensemble.

  • 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.

    Dress: Twelve by Mac Duggal 3479T

    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
