'Tis the season of getting dressed up and gown ready! I personally can't believe it's here already and while it's super fun to get all decked out and holiday party hop, it can also be exhausting trying to figure out what to wear. I'd much rather spend the extra money on gifts rather than a fancy maxi dress that is so memorable that everyone remembers if you ever wear it again. I just saw Selena Gomez at the AMA awards in a simply stunning long sleeve black gown with a beautiful back cut out. Coincidentally it was just like something I picked up recently from EXPRESS, but conveniently much less expensive. There's something dramatic about simplicity. When everyone else was trying so hard to find something different, there's Selena strutting the carpet in a classic shape, hair pulled back. The great thing about this is that you can accessorize however you please and can constantly change the look. Maybe I can get away with wearing it more than once then! Problems solved.
