  • 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.

    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.

    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!

  • How to Dress for Valentine's Day

    Whether single or attached, Valentine's Day is right around the corner! With only 2 weeks left until February 14th, it's a perfect time to start planning your outfit. Even if you don't know exactly what you'll be doing yet, unless you'll be attending a formal event, a simple, sexy dress is always a staple go-to choice.

    candyhearts2

    Every woman should obviously choose an outfit that they feel sexy in on this night, but it's also important to find one that you can feel comfortable and confident in. Even if you don't have a hot date, it's still a great night to go out and have some fun with your girlfriends. And, you definitely want to make sure that you'll be making a statement and turning some heads! For this day, don't feel like you need to go all-out with a fancy, sequined outfit like you might wear on New Year's Eve. In general, it's best to go with a simple, classic dress that accentuates your body. It's all about finding a nice balance between fancy and casual for this night out - choosing something that you'd wear to a nice dinner and a movie date is usually a good gauge!

    If you want to show some holiday spirit, choose a red or pink dress, but you can always go with a simple Little Black Dress. A purple dress can also be a fun choice for showing off the V-Day colors if you want to avoid going the traditional red and pink route. We picked out our 3 favorite Valentine's Day dresses below (one for each color: red, pink, & black), so you can get some ideas for the big night!

    If you want a red dress, we love Sherri Hill style 5002. It's a simple, short cocktail bandage dress that is sure to show off your curves, and it's definitely a dress that you'll find many uses for well after Valentine's Day. It also comes in colors black, navy, and white.

    Sherri Hill style 5002

    La Femme style 17494 is a perfect choice if you're looking for a pink dress. Amazing and sexy, this short cocktail dress is complete with a V-shaped front and back and has intricate beading all over the bodice. The dress comes in a light pink, blush, color, so you can show some Valentine's Day love without screaming it. It also comes in nude, if you want to forego the traditional V-Day colors altogether!

    La Femme style 17494

    For a traditional Little Black Dress, Mori Lee style 9200 is perfect for V-Day because of the beautiful lace all over it. This LBD is both classy and sexy at the same time, and can definitely be worn for a bunch of different occasions. It also comes in a nude color, which really shows off the intricate lace detailing on the dress.
