Reader Request

Greetings Fashion Friends,

I have another reader request that I'd like to share with you. This one is from Serita. Keep 'em coming people!


I'm going to a formal event in a couple of weeks and I would like some help finding a suitable dress. I don't want to go all out and I definitely want to keep it under $100. Thank you for your help.

Dang, I don't have any formal events to attend! Oh I'm sooooo not leading the glamorous life, I gotta step my "A" game up, lol. Well Serita, I hope what I've assembled below helps. This assortment may be shipped and all the dresses will arrive within 7-10 days (if you order online).

Speechless Dress, Halter Gown with Brooch
The price is so right on this lovely halter gown and the lilac looks great on all skin tones to me.

Piper- Black Cocktail Dress $119.90
I love this dress and black is just soooo slimming. I think the pin tucks along the sweetheart neckline are fab so I would advise you to stay away from a statement necklace. However, huge chandelier earrings will work well along with a blinged out bracelet.

Sequin Cocktail Dresses $96.00

Okay this dress is a little risque with the keyhole bodice and high hemline. However, scale back on the accessories and go with a natural look and you will be a class act.

lace panel sheath dress

This is such a va-va-voom look. I'm loving the price so I had to include it plus I really believe if you go with gold jewelry and some sky high heels, the dress will fit in well with your formal environment.

Empire Waist Long Tube Dress with Thick Tie

You can really dress this item up with a statement necklace, bracelet, and chandelier earrings.

Black Beaded Collar Maxi Dresses by Wish Collection

Talk about a maxi dress that can really make a statement. The beaded collar is lovely so just add some jeweled earrings, huge cocktail ring, and bracelet and you're good to go.

Beaded crinkle chiffon dress
Wow, another fabulous buy! Complement this dress with some jeweled strappy heels, earrings, and cocktail ring.
I really hope this gives you an idea about what you can wear to a "formal" affair. We're so loose with our interpretation these days that any of the above dresses should work just fine.
