  • Happy March! Are You Prom Ready?

    We can't believe March is officially here already! It may still be freezing cold out, but Spring is just around the corner (the first day of Spring in 2014 is March 20th...only 16 days away!) and it's definitely time to start making sure you're Prom Ready if you haven't started yet.

    Prom Ready

    What do we mean when we say that it's time to get prom ready? Well, it may be too early on to have a date yet and to start planning some of the simpler things like the limo and what you and your friends will be doing for After Prom, but it's definitely time to start putting your outfit together. Finding that perfect prom dress is obviously the most important factor, but don't forget that it's also important to pick out your high heels, a clutch, jewelry and accessories, and even your makeup and hairstyle.

    We recommend starting with finding your dress first, since that can be the most tedious process with deciding what color, overall style, and length you want. You also want to make sure to leave enough time to get the dress hemmed to fit you perfectly. But, some people are obsessed wearing stand-out accessories, like eye-turning heels or a bold purse. If you're one of those people, you may find it helpful to plan your dress around the shoes or purse you want to wear with your outfit.

    If you need some inspiration on where to start and love the dress in our image above, it's Nina Canacci style 7014. It's a hand beaded chiffon sleeveless gown that features a sweetheart neckline and a V shaped back. The straps and bodice are adorned with intricate pattern of beautiful embellishments, and the flowing skirt is emphasized with soft layers that cascades to a full length. The color shown above is Bubble Gum, but it also comes in an Aqua color.

    Good luck with getting prom ready for Prom 2014! If you have any questions about a dress or even just want help finding what dress might be right for you, don't hesitate to give us a call, send us an e-mail, or even just leave a comment below.

  • Best Dressed on the 2014 Oscars Red Carpet!

    The 86th Annual Academy Awards have finally come and gone, and they were as great as we could have ever expected! Ellen DeGeneres was destined to be the host of the Oscars - she was so funny! And, we absolutely loved Jared Leto's acceptance speech for his work in Dallas Buyers Club (of course, we were also totally in love with the way he looked!). But, as always, our eyes were on the Red Carpet and all the gorgeous dresses that the celebrities wore! Yesterday we showed your our favorite Oscar Worthy Prom Dresses, but now that the lady celebrities have showed off their dresses, here's our best dressed on the 2014 Oscars Red Carpet Check and how you can steal their looks for prom.

    Anna Kendrick blew us away at the Academy Awards! The Twilight star's black cut-out and sheer dress was so on-trend and looked so perfect on her! We also loved how she accessorized with red nails and a matching red purse. Red and black are always a great combination, and Anna showed us exactly why.

    Night Moves 7017f-black_1 400x560

    You can so easily get Anna's look with Night Moves by Allure style 7017. This striking gown features similar geometric sheer cut-outs to Anna's gown and is form-fitting in all of the right ways. This dress also comes in Ivory and Red if you want a color that stands our a little more than the classic black look.

    Jennifer Lawrence always comes up with stylish looks to wear to awards ceremonies and this year's Oscars was definitely no different. We loved the bright, bold red peplum dress that she chose to wear. She looked so classy!

    Jovani 73539

    To get The Hunger Games star's look, check out Jovani style 73539. It's a sexy long evening gown that features a beautiful sheer sweetheart neckline, peplum at the waist, sexy open back and beautiful tulle panel detailing at the skirt. It's such a unique way to wear peplum at prom!

    Kristin Chenoweth was all glammed out in gold at the Oscars and we loved it! What better place to wear gold than at the Academy Awards? The sparkly patterns against the tulle material of the skirt on Kristin's dress made for a beautiful red carpet look.

    Nina Canacci 9022

    To glitter in gold like Kristin, Nina Canacci style 9022 is your dress. This shimmering ensemble features a strapless and sweetheart neckline. An array of sequined stripes fully covers the entire silhouette, while the side and drop waist is embellished with floral sequins for added sparkle and flair. The body skimming shape creates a captivating design that will definitely have you feeling like a celebrity at prom!

    Terani p3121

     For a modern day Old Hollywood look, we're all about Ternai style P3121. It's a form fitting sweetheart mermaid gown with delicate crystal embellishments. It's such a classic (and classy) look, but so glam at the same time!

    Jovani 7821

     To make sure you stand out from the crowd, choosing a bold color is always a go-to choice. Jovani style 7821 is perfect to get that bold color in a totally classy Oscar-worthy way. It's a sexy strapless chiffon gown with a sweetheart neckline that features a ruched bodice with an intricate design. We especially love how flowy the skirt is - perfect for strutting down the red carpet...or onto the prom dance floor...in beautiful grace!

    Mac Duggal 81719r-ivory-black-f 400x560

     To glam it up in style and sophistication, Mac Duggal style 81719R is your answer. This glamorous mermaid prom gown has a lacy underlay that's covered by an intricate beaded applique. The sparkle beading begins at the crystal and sequin sweetheart neckline to give the bodice a more glamorous effect. The embellishments then sweep down the form-fitting silhouette into a stunning tulle mermaid skirt.

  • Kylie Erica Mar at the Critics Choice Awards in Mac Duggal

    Just a couple of weeks ago we wrote about how stunned we were to see Nia Long at the Critics' Choice Awards in Jovani 77542. Well, she wasn't the only celebrity at the 2014 Critics' Choice Awards wearing one of our favorite dresses designers. Kylie Erica Mar was at the awards show wearing another one of our designers: Mac Duggal!

    Kylie Erica Mar Critics Choice Awards Mac Duggal 82019

    Kylie wore Mac Duggal style 82019, a stunning gown that's designed to deliver that WOW factor, whether worn on the red carpet or to prom! Sexy illusion cutouts accent the waist with beautiful silver beading and sequins. The jersey prom gown features a plunging neckline and sexy open back, trimmed with more sophisticated beading along the sides. The full skirt carefully fits your body to give you ease of movement and an exciting night.

    Kylie wore the dress so perfectly! We loved her choice to keep her hair down and parted to the side - it accented the gown nicely while still showing off the sexy neckline and open back. Her dark cat eyes were a perfect accent to the sleek black lines of the skirt. Keeping her accessories simple with one silver bangle and a silver clutch was also a great choice, allowing the dress to speak for itself.

    If you haven't caught Kylie on TV yet, she is the reporter for Made in Hollywood, where she interviews many of Hollywood's biggest starts, including Tom Hanks, Leonardo DiCaprio, Harrison Ford, and many, many more. If there's anyone who knows how to dress like a star on the red carpet, it's definitely her! So, if you want to feel like a celeb at your prom this year, just take a cue from Kylie and this Mac Duggal dress. Do you love her look? Leave us a comment and let us know!

The PCAs and GGs are officially over, and we're now onto the 19th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards, and you better believe the red carpet was full of such gorgeous dresses!

She wore Jovani style 77542, a curve-hugging jersey cutout gown. The age-defying actress looks amazing in just about anything, but this sheer cutout dress looked exceptionally perfect on her! The dress hugged her curves so perfectly, showing off just the right amount of skin with the sheer cutouts and open back.
