Can you really go wrong with a Notte by Marchesa gown? No. No you cannot. So, the story behind this dress is that I actually bought it for my prom! I didn't have a date, but I did have an absolutely killer dress courtesy of my super loving parents. I know, can you believe it? While prom was awesome, I would hate to see a dress like this go to waste over a single night. Thus, I honestly wear this gown every chance I get. I love this dress for a couple of reasons. First, it's an instant classic. The little black dress will never go out of style and neither will its sister, the little black evening gown. I love how this gown has a slight pleating to the skirt giving it just a touch of volume. Plus, don't you just love the sleeves? It makes me feel so Kate Middleton-esque! Second, the beading on the waist provides just the right amount of glam without overpowering the whole outfit; it's the only accessory you need. Fun fact: my little ear lobes have never been pierced, so my accessory list is limited to rings, bracelets, and necklaces (not that I'm complaining!). With this gown, though, I hardly ever need to add a thing! Just some classy heels and a little clutch and I'm ready for a black tie event. Anyways, that's all for now.
stay savvy, loves!
