Today I am extremely lucky because I get to attend a black tie gala. This is not something that happens a lot and when it does, it is the perfect excuse to buy a new evening gown. I am one of those people where I jump at any chance to dress up in a fancy floor length gown (with a train if possible!). And of course as all women and girls know, you just can’t wear the same dress twice around the same people, it’s a fashion no-no. Thus it means shopping time!
I didn’t quite know what I was looking for this time around, which is actually quite handy because suddenly there were a lot more choices that if I had the exact dress in my mind (which guarantees I will never find it). So scrolling through numerous online websites I found this gorgeous gown by the designer Carmen Marc Valvo.
It is absolutely beautiful and nothing like anything I have ever worn before. It is made of a gold brocade fabric with a sparkly crystal band around the waist. It is just so elegant and has a real air of Hollywood glamour about it. I am definitely excited to put it on in a few hours, with some strappy high heeled Jimmy Choo sandals, and all done up with hair and makeup. It’s going to be quite a special night and I can’t wait!
