Don't you just love browsing through the JCrew catalog eyeing all those gorgeous cocktail dresses? What an impact these beautiful dresses have in luxurious, lightweight silk, taffeta, cotton, satin, organza and lace. Nevermind the simple, yet fashionable styles of strapless, sleeveless, wraps, one-shoulder, v-neck, halter and scoop-neck. The classic and timeless designs of these cocktail dresses are perfect for a social affair or function. Did I even mention the bold and dramatic or the soft pastel colors? Yes, these dresses are truly inspiring for any social gathering, including dinner and cocktails.
I recently went to a lovely afternoon wedding and I wore one these cocktail dresses, and I can't begin to tell you all the wonderful compliments I received. The dress fit like a glove in a flattering style and a soft color that made a fashion statement on its own. I purchased not only the exquisite dress, but jewelry, shoes and a shawl that came together perfectly. The cocktail -party dress was perfect for this occasion, but it can be worn practically all year round, and I can't wait untill I wear it again.
