  • 2013 ACM Awards Celebrity Style

    The 2013 Academy of Country Music Awards Show was held this past Sunday, April 7th, and we can tell that it's definitely Spring Time because so many of the celebrities were in cute short dresses! Of course, the celeb looks were as perfect as ever, and were certainly giving us lots of inspiration for Prom and Spring Formals!

    As far as short looks went at the ACM Awards, the three celebs that we loved the looks of were: Carrie Underwood, Sheryl Crowl, and Miranda Lambert. And, our favorites of their dresses weren't the ones that they actually wore to the awards show, but the ones they wore on the stage during their performances. Check out what they wore below, as well as perfect dresses to get their look for your next formal event!

    Carrie Underwood's little black lace dress couldn't have been any cuter, and certainly couldn't of been any more on-trend! Lace has been so popular lately, and we loved the way it looked on her dress!

    Sherri Hill 2957

     To get her look for Prom or a Formal Event, Sherri Hill style 2957 couldn't be any more perfect. It's an elegant lace number with a similar sheer sweetheart neckline, cap sleeves, and fitted bodice as Carrie's dress that comes in colors black and white. You could always add some cute black gloves to finish off Carrie's look!

    Sheryl Crow were a sparkly gold frock that made her shine on stage during her performance! We loved how the dress sparkled so beautifully when the light reflected off of it.

    Precious Formals P8873

     For a similar gold sparkly look, Precious Formals style P8873 is a great option. This criss cross halter dress is stunningly covered in hand work sequins and has a sunburst pattern cutout in the back, making this short number very sleek and sexy.

    Miranda Lambert was another little black look that we loved. Her corset bodice and fringe skirt outfit was just so much fun!

    Alyce 2233

    Claudine for Alyce style 2233 is perfect for rocking Miranda's look at prom. Fringe, sequins and jewels says it all in this dress!

  • What to Wear to a Spring Formal

    Spring is here, and that means it's time for lots and lots of college formal events. Whether attending your school's formal or a sorrority or fraternity formal, it's definitely a time to be dressed to the nines! Before you even begin to start shopping, double-check the dress code and determine if the event is a formal or semi-formal. One great way to make sure you're buying the right outfit is to talk to upperclassmen who have attended the events before and ask what they've worn. If it's a semi-formal event, a cocktail dress is a great option. If the invitation says formal or black tie, it may be more appropriate to wear a full-length gown. Either way, it's always fun to dress up!

    Below are four dresses that we love for college formal events: two cocktail dresses for a semi-formal, and two full-length gowns for a formal event.

    Spring Semi-Formal Event

    Shail K. is a great designer to look at for cute, sexy cocktail dresses. The designer has two dresses that we absolutely love for spring formal events: style SK3195 and style SK3823.

    Shail K sk3195

    Shail K. style SK3195 has a hand beaded ombre pattern that's just gorgeous. The black, blue, purple color makes it perfect to wear any time of the year, so you can definitely get multiple uses out of this dress.

    Shail K sk3823

    With pastels being so in this season, Shail K SK3823 couldn't be any more perfect for Spring with the two colors it comes in: Peach (shown above) and Nude. The flowing layers and satin accentuated waist give the look of beauty and power, and the translucent fabric around the neck and sides let enough sexy peek through while keeping the untouchable aura of a goddess!

    Spring Formal Event

    For sexy formal gowns that aren't as glitz and glam as prom dresses can be, there are two designers that we love: Sherri Hill and La Femme. Both have evening gowns that are so perfect for a variety of formal or black tie affairs.

    Sherri Hill 8510

    Sherri Hill style 8510 is our favorite evening gown for Springtime. It's a simple yet elegant strapless sweetheart dress that has intricate beaded detail. We especially love the subtle high-low look on the dress. You'll also have a variety of colors to choose from that are all so perfect for springtime: Strawberry (shown above), Ivory, Pink, Purple, Turquoise, and Yellow!

    La Femme 18713

    La Femme style 18713 is a beautiful figure flattering dress with intricate beading on the bodice and soft gathers at the waist. The beading gives it such an elegant look, while not being over the top. The dress comes in a variety of different colors, such as Peacock (pictured above), Purple, Nude, Light Lime, and Peach. If your event is a black tie affair, this dress in Black is a perfect option.

  • Pretty Pastels and Lace to wear on Easter and Passover

    Move over winter, Spring is officially here, and it's time to celebrate Easter and Passover to ring in the warmer weather! Even though it's still a little nippy out, there's no better time to get in the Spring spirit than Easter and Passover time. While it's always necessary to look fashionable, it's also important to wear ensembles that are reasonably conservative since you'll be around family members.

    Pastel hues, florals, and lace are so in this Spring, so we picked our favorite looks for Easter and Passover. The dresses we chose are from Sherri Hill and Dave & Johnny because these designers always make great dresses that are perfect for a variety of different occasions. No matter where your spring holiday plans take you, these fancy frocks will not only have you in perfect fashionista form, but you can easily wear them right through the rest of the season (and even into summer!).

    Sherri Hill 2941

    Our absolute favorite dress for the Spring holidays is Sherri Hill style 2941. Of course, Kylie Jenner looks amazing in it, but that's not the only reason we love this dress so much! This ornately embroidered mini dress is so perfect for Easter - the cap sleeves make the dress family appropriate and the lace gives it such an elegant look. We especially love the Blush color it comes in for Spring, but it also comes in plenty of other colors, too, if pink isn't your first choice.

    Sherri Hill 21131

    Another dress that we love from this designer is Sherri Hill style 21131. This short, banded dress is so perfect for any occassion - from nights out with friends, to formal events. If you plan on wearing this for Easter, we just recommend that you pair it with a cardigan to give it a more conservative look.

    Dave and Johnny 8679

    Dave & Johnny style 8679 is a short pink dress with lace overlay throughout that's easy to dress up or down depending on the event you're attending. It's a simple, but feminine look that's perfect for the Springtime.

    Dave and Johnny 8472

    Dave & Johnny style 8472 is another cocktail dress that's great for Easter and Passover. The dress is covered with a floral lace overlay, and the waist is accented with a ribbon detail that ties to the side. It's such an on-trend feminine look, and works especially well if your event is on the more formal side.

    No matter which number you choose, we recommend pairing the dress with a cute cardigan. Depending on how formal your event is, it's always good to have the option of covering up your shoulders. And, of course, since it's still a little cold out, it will keep you warmer!

  • Green for St. Patrick's Day

    St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner, and that means it's time to put lots of green on! We love this holiday of course because it's a perfect excuse to wear a cute dress. When it comes to showing some St. Paddy's Day pride, your look doesn't have to be head-to-toe green, but with Emerald Green being the 2013 Color of the Year, could you ask for a better time to show off your on-trend style? We didn't think so. Nothing says St. Patrick's Day better than a Little Green Dress, so check out our favorites for the holiday below!

    Our favorite dress for St. Patrick's day is Sherri Hill style 21131 in lime green. The neon green color is so perfect for standing out in the sea of green that you're bound to be in on this day, and the bandage fabric is super figure flattering. Best of all, since neon is so on-trend right now, it's the perfect dress to wear time and time again in the spring and summer months.

    If neon isn't your thing and you'd rather go with a darker green dress, La Femme style 15907 is a great option.  It's a net pleated short dress with a V shaped front and back. The toned-down green color makes it easy to wear for any other event you may have once St. Patrick's Day has come and gone.

    Want to rock the Color of the Year, Emerald Green? Sparkle style 71192 is not only good for that, but also for getting two looks in one! This fun and flirty hi-lo cocktail dress features a strapless neckline, all over sequin body and a removable short tulle over-skirt with a satin bow at the waist. What a perfect way to not only have a dress for St. Paddy's Day, but to rock the on-trend look at Prom, too!

    Hopefully this St. Patrick's Day will be a warm one, but if it's cold, wearing black stockings with your dress is a great way to finish off the look and stay a little warmer for the day.

  • What to Wear to a Winter Wedding

    Finding the perfect dress to wear to a winter wedding can be difficult; you want to wear a cute dress, but it's cold out! Whether a formal or semi-formal wedding, here's some ideas that are perfect for showing off your fashion sense during the one month when dresses aren't quite as easy to wear.

    Formal Wedding

    This type of wedding usually means it's good to wear a long dress, since it's the winter time. Black is the perfect color for winter because the darker color is always appropriate, no matter what the setting.  It can also always be dressed up or down with accessories, depending on just how formal the black-tie affair is.

    The first dress is La Femme style 18928, an elegant and classic jersey gown with satin accents and criss-cross satin straps under the bust. The back also has satin straps that criss-cross with a rhinestone brooch in the center. Since it's a simple black gown, you can have a lot of fun changing the look with accessories.

     

    La Femme style 18928

     

    The second dress is a fancier number that's perfect if you know the event you are attending is on the more formal side. It's Alyce Jean De Lys style 29602, a satin and lace gown with a scoop-neck. The cap sleeves and black lace make is so perfect for the colder months!

     Semi-Formal Wedding

    If it's a semi-formal wedding, a cocktail dress is the perfect choice. This type of wedding allows you to be much more flexible with your outfit and more easily show off your style. Our two favorite cocktail dresses for a winter wedding are below - the longer sleeves make them so perfect for the winter time. And, since they're just classic cocktail dresses, they can be worn for a number of other occasions, too!

    For a funkier look, we love Jovani style 74207. It's a short cocktail dress with 3/4 length sleeves and illusion detail that shows off just enough skin, while still having that classy look for a wedding.

    Jovani style 74207

    for a cocktail dress on the more formal size, we love Alyce Jean De Lys style 29524. This chic and classy short dress has a lace over satin fabric with a scoop neckline and 3/4 length illusion sleeves. Best yet, it's a classic little black dress that can be word to many different events!

    Wearing clothes and accessories that say "Love" on them have been all the rage lately, so they'll definitely be the hot thing to wear on Valentine's Day! We thought this ring was simple, but so cute - a great way to show your love (no pun intended) for the holiday without going overboard. And, once you put it on, you'll probably never want to take it off!

    <3 We Heart You <3

    Wearing anything with hearts is always super chic, and V-Day is no exception! We thought this sweater was so cute with the sequin heart elbow patches. Best yet, you can wear it again and again after Valentine's Day is over!

  • What to Wear to a Sweetheart Dance

    Valentine's Day time of course also means it's Sweetheart Dance time! Having trouble figuring out what to wear to your Sweetheart Dance? Since it's an event to celebrate Valentine's Day, we recommend picking a red or pink dress. Purple or white are also great colors to choose if you want to show some Valentine's Day love but don't like the traditional red or pink. If those four hues don't work for you, black is always a staple color that you can wear to any event!

    As far as the type of dress goes, choose a strapless/sleeveless cocktail dress. You can either go with the traditional fitted cocktail dress, or choose one that flares out at the waist for a more flowy look. We picked out our favorite Valentine's Day dresses for a Sweetheart Dance below and put them into a cute Polyvore set to give you some ideas on what to wear!

  • New Year's Eve Party Themes

    With New Year's Eve only 4 days away, it's definitely time to get your party plans together! Whether you're holding your own party, or attending someone else's, it can be fun to have a theme. Party City recently put together a list of NYE party themes that we thought were cute ideas to spice up the normal New Year's party. Whether you're looking for a theme for your own party, or if you know that one of your friends will be having one at theirs, we paired some sexy cocktail dresses with our favorite Party City NYE party ideas.

    Want to stick with the classic New Year's Eve look? You definitely can't go wrong by keeping with tradition and going with a black, silver, and gold party theme. As far as dressing for the occasion, a classic little black dress is always perfect, but it can be fun to dress it up a bit with silver or gold accenting either on the dress or with your accessories. We love Primavera style 9625 for a traditional NYE look - it's a cute strapless dress with silver and black sequins.

    Looking for something a little more funky for New Year's Eve? There's definitely no better night to let your wild side out! Don't be afraid to shake things up with fun spots and stripes in your party's theme and on your outfit. Animal print dresses are always a sexy staple for any girl's closet, so it's a dress you won't have trouble finding multiple uses for. We love Xcite style 30375 and Jovani style 9866 cocktail dresses to get the animal print look for NYE.

    Just want to add some bright colors to your New Year's Eve? Go with a "Midnight Mystery" theme and fill your night with bold blues, purples, oranges and reds. There's plenty of multicolor dresses you can pick from, but we love Hannah S. style 27781 for a fun and flirty look.
