Friday's Fancies-Red Carpet Ready

Linking up with {av} for Friday's Fancies. 

Red Carpet Ready


This week's Friday's Fancies theme is Red Carpet Ready. I was very excited for this theme since I work with dresses. This dress makes a statement with the shape and color. Isn't it gorgeous?

Also, I wanted to share some advice about dress shopping as I know first hand how difficult it can be. My advice is to have an open mind and rid yourself of negative thoughts. Most dresses do not have much hanger appeal and you need to try them on to really see how they look. Don't be afraid to try something on that you think won't look good on you. You won't know how it looks, until you try it on. If I had a dollar for every time someone said to me, "I saw that but I didn't think it would look good on me" then they leave the store with that dress, I wouldn't have to work again!! It's true. 
Keep an open mind.

Have a FANTASTIC weekend!!

  9. Such a pretty dress! Makes me think of Marilyn and "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend"!

    And I agree about the dress shopping. So many times I've seen them on a hanger and thought they were blah, then tried them on and loved them!

    Have a great weekend :)

  10. i love the architecture of this dress--i think it would flatter many a women's body! my fave dresses are nipped at the waist with a fuller skirt.


Thanks for visiting, I love hearing from you!
