<<<<<<< Formal Mode >>>>>>>

What does formal wear mean to you today, Pretty Birds? With ever changing perceptions of event dressing and the convention shifting fashion that mega stylists like Zerina Akers, Jess Will, Karla Welch, Law Roach, Jason Bolden, and Jason Rembert are forging, the ballgown is no longer the go to robe DE RIGUEUR when it comes to glamorous outings. That being stated my dear fellow fashion enthusiasts, for your upcoming galas, weddings, or red carpets wear whatever makes your eyes twinkle and hearts flutter - bring your own flavour of shimmer to the party.
