This was my cousin Jillian's dress she wore to a family event. And here is where I felt old and out of touch. I thought it looked like a very nice bedazzled tank top. It was a loose, stretchy material and she did a great job of dressing it up with platforms that cramped my feet upon seeing them and matching jewelry. But I wouldn't have seen it in a store. I would have walked right by it.
This dress ended up being the superstar of the night. The DJ couldn't take his eyes off of it. Twelve year olds and sixty year old strangers alike made their way over to our table hypnotized by the sequins complimenting that dress up a storm. Everything I thought I knew about evening dresses are been hot glued away. I am (gold) lamenting.
