  • The Great Gatsby Inspired Look for Halloween

    The Great Gatsby may have been in theaters earlier this Summer, but we're still obsessing over all of the stunning fashion in the movie. We simply can't get all of the glitz and glam out of our heads (not to mention Leonardo DiCaprio)! Well, with Halloween here, is there a better time to show off your own glitz and glam? We didn't think so! So, we thought it would be fun to show you how you can rock this Summer's hit movie for All Hallow's Eve.

    To get the look, we paired one of our sparkly fringe dresses with a chic feather headpiece, a feather boa, and a long strand of pearls. You can also add in dress glove for an extra touch of glam (and warmth!). The dress is Hannah S. style 27696, a strapless slim sheath cocktail dress with all over sequins and a beaded fringe skirt.

    Remember to complete the look with super glitzy jewelry! We especially love Helen's Heart style JE-4601-10 Clear Silver Earrings and Helen's Heart JB-PD00339 Black Diamond Bracelet to add some bling to your outfit.

  • 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!

  • 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

With this sparkly number from Sherri Hill (style 2308), actually become a princess for Halloween by adding a crown! Or, for another cute look, you can add bunny ears.
