Shopping For Evening Dresses

6 Flares 6 Flares ×

As a stay-at-home mom you can usually find me in jeans and a sweatshirt this time of year. It just doesn’t make sense for me to get dressed up as if I was going to the office when I spend most of the day on the computer or cleaning the house. This makes me all the more excited for special occasions that call for a fancy dress.

That’s why I was excited to learn about Misses Dressy. It’s a fantastic site that offers A-List evening dresses by top designers.

I remember the last time I went out shopping for an evening dress. It was a few years ago for a fundraising auction event. I was excited to get dressed up and out of the house for the evening. I wanted to find a dress that made me feel beautiful. After visiting one store after another I finally found the one. It was a deep purple and perfect. I loved how it allowed me to wear my favorite colorful necklace and was happy to see it played off the purple in the dress. It was a great night and lots of fun and I still have that dress and hope to wear it again some day soon.

My favorite evening shopping dress excursion however was for my senior prom. I didn’t go to my junior prom because I had a volleyball tournament so I was very excited to go when I was a senior. My mom and I shopped around for ages. I didn’t know what I wanted but as soon as I saw the black velvet dress with a big royal blue puff on the shoulder (it was the early 90’s!) I was in love. It was such a beautiful and gorgeous dress that it made for a fun and memorable evening.

Shopping for evening dresses can be very exciting and now that I’ve taken these trips down memory lane, I feel the need to get out of my jeans and sweatshirt and find a reason to put on something shiny and sparkly!

  1. These are some beautiful dresses. I haven’t had to shop for an evening dress in years. The last time I bought one was when we went on a cruise. I am like you, mostly in jeans and t-shirts.

  2. Maralea says:

    These are gorgeous! Wish I had a place to wear them!

  3. The blue one is absolutely beautiful! But, like you, I don’t have anywhere to wear an evening gown. I wish I did…

  4. Those are so pretty!! Now I wish I had a reason to wear an evening dress!

  5. Ashley S says:

    I own like two dresses.. that have never been worn lol I’m a jeans and t-shirt kind of person. Those dresses are beautiful though!

  6. I just told hubby the other day I wanted to shop for an evening dress so we can go out to somewhere fancy. Not often do I dress-up!

  7. Kristine E. says:

    Those are gorgeous, I don’t know if I have anything on my schedule that would require getting that dolled up though…

  8. I never have a chance to dress up anymore but I really like the blue dress.

  9. I usually get a cocktail dress once every few years. I like to have something that’s stylish at the ready in case I need it for an event.

  10. I always love a reason to dress up. Thank you :)

  11. I think the last time I wore a fancy dress like that was to Senior Ball many years ago. Last year I had fun taking my daughter to the mall to buy her first dress for her first high school dance!

  12. Dress shopping for me has always been pa challenge for me, I am not even 5ft tall. Everything seemed childish at prom time, or extremely expensive in NYC. I dated my husband for 4 years before getting engaged. It was then to my surprise his Aunt revealed she was a wedding gown designer & custom made the perfect wedding gown for me. I felt like a princess. Unforgettable.
