Keeping a cream dress clean
June 24, 2011 § 1 Comment
Ceviche, along with salsa, and every other sour, spicy sauce = A cream colored dress’s mortal enemy.
This beige and cream chiffon pleated knee-length dress represents the Lady-Gaga-meets-Byronic-Heroine look seen throughout BCBG’s Spring ’11 Runway collection. Shying away from the usual ruffled, strapless dresses aka a Prom Queen’s essential party frock, I took a chance in wearing big sleeves on a big night out for my best girlfriend’s graduation AND to dinner at a wonderful Peruvian restaurant, Los Balcones del Peru, hidden in the corner of Hollywood. I love the way it romantically drapes over my curves without being see-through or vulgar at any angle. Perhaps it’s the mesh v-neck or the thick(er) chiffon material that makes the dress look slightly less flimsy and not-too-delicate, therefore perfect for wandering around until 2 am without being a moving target. You gotta keep it classy but practical, y’know. Keep it lookin’ a lot more than it’s actually worth. Not to mention that while I rubbed my sleeve vigorously after splattering some lime juice over me, it was left in a damp condition without abrasion . I did also get this dress on sale. 70% OFF. Score.
