I recently had the opportunity to attend the Belk Southern Designer Showcase at the Sheraton Hotel in Uptown Charlotte, where up and coming designers competed to be selected to carry their designs at Belk Department Stores.
Belk’s moto is Modern. Southern. Style, and the invitation said “dress your best” for this late afternoon extravaganza. This dress from Sara Boo arrived just mere days before the event, at the point where I had no clue what to wear for it, and as soon as I tried it on, I said to myself “OMG, this is perfect for the event!”
This is the perfect summer cocktail dress to stand out in a sea of LBDs. I got so many compliments on it and someone even asked if it was Trina Turk. And yes, it does look a lot like some of her signature psychedelic designs, but at a much lower cost.
I really like the crystal embellishment on the neckline so that you’re not having to think of a necklace to wear that might end up competing with the already busy pattern of the dress. The waffle-like material stretches just enough to hug in all the right places and the trumpet hem gives a fun flair that creates more of an hourglass look. Get 20% off at Sara Boo using code STYLE 20
