"Everybody Shantung Tonight" Now That Song is Stuck in My Head....

Have you ever been invited to an elegant wedding or something, and have had to go all the way to Nordstrom's or whatever and buy a gorgeous dress (boo-hoo for you! *sarchasm*) to find the dress sitting in the back of your closet, gathering moth holes and dust mites, never been worn again after the event? Well it happens to tons of people but not anymore! First of all, keep the cut of the dress classic and flattering- for example, imagine you lived in the 80's (that would be so cool!) and wore a Golden-Girls esque dress with showgirl sequins and big boxy shoulder pads...you would probably die of embarassment looking back at that picture right? Exactly! Next, preferably keep the color neutral so people won't notice that much if you wear it again, like nobody is going to say "look at whatsername wearing that same black dress", they'll say, "look at whatsername wearing that same aqua sequined minidress with the ruffly bottom"! If you really cannot resist, at least make the color flatter you- a good idea is to get a stylish celebrity that has your same basic features (eye color, hair color, skin tone, etc.) and see a color that she looks good in or wears a lot...chances are you'll look good in that color too! For example, if you are a blue-eyed blonde, going for Gwenyth Paltrow's color choices would definetely work. Lastly and most importantly, remember to check the guest list before going to a party so nobody will see you wear the same dress twice...if you are a celebrity- this post does NOT apply to you!! (if you must wear a dress twice or more in front of the same people, try to accessorize it differently, like a cinched belt at the waist or something).

Here are some more muted color choices I picked out from Shop Bop and Nordstrom's:


These longer v-necks flatter and slim the body in silk/satin. I love how the first won just skims over the body looking so sultry but modest at the same time- same goes for the second one that flatters the body so much its unbelievable! Top:Graham & Spencer Silk Charmeuse Dress, $306 (pricey but worth it) Bottom: Dave Meister Stretch Satin Dress, $368 (same goes for this one).


These two stunning but simple dresses always look cute wether at a religious or sad event (with tights and modest shoes) or at a wedding or fancier party. The top one is the Generra Pleated Dress for $295 and the bottom one is the Delias Leah Dress for an unbeatable price of $44.50- it might even be prettier than the Generra one!


Lastly, I am really loving strapless lately, especially with a-line bottoms that create curves modestly. Never wear these dresses with tights, that would just look so wrong! The top one is from Velvet Torch and is the Shantung ("everybody shantung tonight"...isn't that a song from the 80's or something?) Tube Dress for a great $62. while the bottom one is the Love from Ya-Ya dress in ruby for $185.

Hope You Loved it!
Luv Ya.
BYE!!!

I love those dresses, and I'm attending a bat mitzvah soon, and I'm in desperate need of a dress. I'm rather petite and want something rather conservative (no plunging necklines or v-necks) on top, but the bottoms can't be too long (seriously, who wants to go around holding your dress off the floor?, and I like colors. Can you help? :)

Oh, by the way Geisha, forgot to say...I'm on a budget...the dress can't be more than $150, but I'd really like if it was under $100.
Thanks if you can answer my bat-mitzvah plea.
Xoxo
