When my sister called and invited me to her company’s annual gala event, I jumped at the chance to get all dressed up. When she told me the attire was “semi-formal”, I immediately knew what I was going to wear. Seven years ago, I attended a wedding. At the wedding I saw a girl in a beautiful lace dress. I told her that I HAD to know where she had gotten it. To my delight she told me she bought it at the Loft. My favorite go-to clothing store. Still is. That weekend I bought it for myself. I wore it to my husband’s Christmas party that year. I don’t think I’ve worn it since then, but I love everything about this dress and wish I had more places to wear it. I don’t think it looks outdated…just classic and beautiful. And that’s just how I felt in it.
One more thing…when I arrived, I noticed a woman waving at me from across the room. I had never seen this woman before so I wasn’t sure why she was waving at me. When I got closer, I realized why she was trying to get my attention. She too, had on this dress! She had a cute little black cardigan over it. I wish I would have gotten her photo, now that I think of it. Guess I’m not the only one who loves this dress.
P.S. I also got my shoes at the Loft the same day I bought the dress and I absolutely LOVE the shoes, as well!!
Alas, this dress is no longer in stores, but here are some similar ones:
