  • 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!

  • 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!

  • Breaking Dawn Part 2 Premiere - Los Angeles

    The Los Angeles premiere of "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" was this past Monday, November 12th, and the stars of the Twilight series looked as stunning as ever on the red carpet. With all of the recent hype behind Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson concerning their alleged break-up, we were happy to see them reunited at the premiere. And, we always love seeing Rob Pattinson and Tyler Lautner all dressed up!

    Swooning and celebrity gossip aide, we were most excited about all of the beautiful dresses, of course! We loved the way Kristen Stewart, Ashley Greene, and Ashley Tisdale looked - their dresses were absolutely stunning. If you want to take a cue from these Twilight stars and rock their looks at your next formal event, check out our dress picks to get their styles below.

    All eyes were on Kristen at the premiere, where she wore a strapless nude lace gown. We loved the corset bodice on the dress, which framed the dress against her body. You can get a similar look with one of these nude & lace dresses from from Jovani & Mac Duggal:

    A.  Mac Duggal Style 78554D – A couture evening gown that features a sweetheart neckline and embroidery and rhinestones throughout the bodice, with a lace and tulle drop waist skirt.

    D. Clarisse Style 2120 – A beaded iridescent halter chiffon prom dress with a rouched waistline.

    Ashley Tisdale wore a sexy little black dress with long sleeves and sequins. Get a similar look with these sexy short black dresses from ALYCE Paris and Jovani:

    E.  Claudine for Alyce Style 2177 – Accentuate your figure in this beaded unlined tulle cocktail dress with high neckline and low scoop back. Long sheer beaded sleeves paired with a mini skirt bottom are the perfect complement.

    F. Jovani Style 9448 – This curve-hugging minidress takes sexy to a new level with its swaths of sheer that show off skin in just the right places. The neckline extends shoulder to shoulder to give a sleek look.

  • 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

    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 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.
