I try very hard to find those items that are in stock in several different sizes. Also, I try to let you know of sales, but these can change daily, so I suggest you carefully check each site to see some great sales!

Of course you’re going to want to take your cue on what to wear based on the formality, time, and venue of the party and take it from there. You don’t want to be overdressed or, worse, underdressed.

Here are some of my favorite looks:
