Party Dressing with DressIn

Today, I begin a three-part series on elegant party dresses.
I've always had an affinity for formal wear. I love dressing up in gowns and maxis and dressy midi skirts and lace tops. Since June is a month of weddings and parties, I thought I'd feature some clothes that can be worn on such special occasions.

Dressing up for formal occasions does not always have to mean spending an entire paycheck or two. Often, you just need time to look around for great deals. 

This first dress is from DRESSIN, an online shopping store where you can find amazing deals for stylish and trendy women's wear from elegant dresses to casual wear, and even lingerie! They also have a wide selection of shoes, bags, and accessories at great bargain prices.

I chose a red dress because it is always a great go-to outfit for special occasions! It is a happy color and in most Asian cultures, red signifies happy tidings! So, wearing red to attend a wedding or birthday celebration is supposed to bring luck and good cheer to the celebrants. There is also something infinitely sexy and sophisticated about the color red, especially the fire engine red of this dress, which I like!

Apart from the eye-catching color, I love its romantic off shoulder style and V-neckline, a perfect foil for the high waist cut and flowing skirt. The slit is a bit too high for me though, but a little adjustment, made it the perfect evening cocktail dress. To add a stark contrast to this standout color, I chose this fuzzy black purse also from DRESSIN and matching black velvet stilettos.

It's definitely an attention-getter of an outfit, and if you don't mind drawing lots of it as soon as you walk into a room, then this dress is for you!
