One of my favorite fashion quotes is "I have been shopping all my life and still have nothing to wear!" This holds true, especially with this time of year, which is always filled with weddings, parties, and summer soirées. With rising temps, you just don't know what to wear. You can choose higher hemlines, or maybe a flowy breezy maxi dress to keep you cool. This season, there are plenty of style options to pick from. There are different lengths with distinct styles for every woman. The fit and flare sihouette is one of the most flattering and feminine dress options for most women. The fabulous dress above is the Jenny Yoo Metallic Jacquard Sheath Dress, with a waist defining and voluminous pleated skirt, and a dipped strapless neckline. Perfect for a wedding or cocktail party. There are plenty other options to choose from, with the midi, maxi, LBD, LWD, fitted, and special occasion dresses below. Just click on the image or the description below for more information!
