What to Wear to a PartyPicking out a dress for a party can really be really fun.
I really hope you get to play a bit and find a dress that you can have some fun in. Looking for clothing to celebrate in brings back those same feelings for me.
When I want to celebrate, I think of a night out on the town,
out with friends; eating great food; catching an entertaining play; perhaps listening to a live band; dancing and eating....I love to eat.
How do you pick out the perfect dress???Well, it depends on what you're going to do, and, how many times you want to wear it. Do you go to a lot of parties?
Can you afford to buy a stand-alone party dress, or does this special event dress have to serve other purposes?
Will it be work-related parties where you have to be a little more conservative then you would perhaps among family and friends?
As always, we will look at your body type and the different style dresses that will work best for your shape, and accentuate your style.
No matter your shape or style, there are party dresses out there with your name on them.
A quick note - don't limit yourself to whether or not the dress you're in love with has sleeves. Many coctail dresses are sleeveless. So commit early on to a shrug or wrap of some kind.
