This elegant, but vibrant dress stood out in a sea of black dresses for this NYC gala.
This was my first gala as Director of Development for my new nonprofit, so I had to tone down the sexiness, but still look stylish. I feel like I accomplished that with this dress. The hue is gorgeous, but I found it a bit loose. The front is quite plain, so I would add a necklace next time (I rented gorgeous earrings to go with it, but stupidly kept my hair down). The back is the really special part. The bottom of the dress was a bit wrinkly when it arrived, so it's great if you have a steamer on hand as this material does tend to wrinkle if not hung up for a few days in advance of wearing it. I am also not very curvy, and I think this dress would be better suited to a woman with curves. It doesn't do much for a straight shot like myself.
