MODEST DRESSES - Evening wear for spring

Yesterday you saw potential modest prom dresses and evening wear from the runway. Today we're showing you what we're wearing the real way.  Like many of you, we don't have thousands of dollars to spend on the fabulous creations we see on the runway. But, that doesn't mean that we can't take inspiration from what we see. For instance, tomorrow we'll show you how this dress (even though it's from BCBG a couple of seasons ago) is still so current.  We're always glad when a dress we pick stands the test of time in the fashion world (since things tend to change so quickly). Although we love trends, we love being able to keep things in our closets for quite a while. Both of us still own key pieces that we easily bought 10 years ago. And we plan on using them for another 10.  Be wise with what you choose to buy (especially when it comes to pricier evening wear).  For instance, so many girls buy prom dresses they will never wear again. Why not buy a dress you could wear to a black tie event years later and not feel like cinderella just walked through the door?

So what's the secret behind this particular dress? We found it on Ebay. And let us tell you... this dress was in the double dollar digits friends. When bidding for it, we about had a heart attack (high quality silk chiffon for under a hundred is hard to come by). Although finding modest dresses that are stylish is pretty difficult, we're here to tell you it can be done! So, for all of you searching for upcoming proms, weddings or other modest evening wear, good luck! May the style muse be with you.


  1. Wow, you look like you're 10 feet tall! Just beautiful and glamorous!


  2. This dress looks beautiful under the bright lights also.  Love it!

  3. LOVE love love the dress, its great how versatile it is, casual to dressy
