Dresses to sit in, and stand in, and walk in;
Dresses to dance in, and flirt in, and talk in;
Dresses in which to do nothing at all;
Dresses for Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall.”
William Allen Butler
The date: September 18, 2007. The show: Gossip Girl Season 1, Episode 1: Pilot. The situation: Returned It Girl Serena van der Woodsen (aka Blake Lively) dons a sparkling, gold sequin-adorned Tory Burch Sleeveless Dress with black Wolford Tights for her date with Dan Humphries (Penn Badgley). The result: At the very moment I spotted that glittering dress I resolved that I would one day own something just like it, and thanks to Promgirl, I finally do.
Just two weeks ago, I was offered the chance to select a gorgeous homecoming dress from Promgirl – an online leader in special occasion dresses – and I immediately jumped at the chance. Though I am past the age of homecoming and prom, I am not the type of girl to refuse a fancy party or cocktail frock; thus, I instantly requested the Clarisse Homecoming Dress 1658 for its likeness to the Tory Burch pretty I’ve been swooning over for nearly five years – a selection that I could not be more pleased with!
The Clarisse 1658 is the type of dress that every girl deserves to have in her wardrobe – even if just to gaze at it admiringly. Unlike many sequin dresses that itch when you wear them, the 1658 features a stretch bodice underneath the sequins, which serves as a protective layer against skin, to prevent itchiness to create the ultimate in comfort. What I love, however, are the details.
The V-neck in the front is matched by a scoop back that gives you a double-dose of daring sexiness; while the mini hemline allows you to flash a little leg without giving too much away. My favorite element, however, is the color. While the Tory Burch Sleeveless Dress that I have coveted since 2007 is gold in color; the 1658 is more neutral-toned – blending chocolate and beige sequins together to give off a radiant, champagne glow that shimmers like a fine wine.
Sexy, elegant, simple, and glamorous; it’s impossible not to feel like a celebutante when garbed in such a gorgeous garment. Be prepared to have all eyes on you!
