I am not a fan of the little black dress. I think – nay, I know that there are plenty of women who not only don’t look their best in black, but who don’t look at all good in black. Black is not a color of celebration or joy, in my book. I don’t like to see it at parties.
I am not a fan of strapless dresses. Most of the time, they fail to flatter and become both uncomfortable and annoying to deal with. Most women who wear them spend half the evening with their thumbs down their bodices trying to pull them up to an acceptable level of coverage. Those with racks of doom spend nine-tenths of the evening that way. Not superfantastic.
I’m not even a fan of the handkerchief hem despite my fondness for Stevie Nicks. I like a skirt that’s pretty much all one length.
So why is it that I’m utterly captivated by this strapless, handkerchief-hemmed little black dress by Alexia Admor? That, I cannot tell you. I can only say that I find it charming and fun.
Well, that and I can tell you that Bluefly has it at an incredible deal. The retail value is listed at $165.00. Bluefly usually sells it for $99.00. Right now, though, it’s on clearance for just $61.99! At that price, it might just be the perfect prom dress for a girl you know.
