    Dress & Tell Winner January 2011
    Monday January 31, 2011 5 Comments
    January 2011 proved to be a very glamorous month for Dress & Tell! Stylish entrants keep making their way to our inbox, and we just love all your pictures. This month's winner is Johanna. Doesn't she look amazing? 

    Johanna's wearing a gorgeous Terani gown with a beaded butterfly design that'll bring a springtime mood to any occasion. The cutout bodice is thrilling and sexy, while the billowy chiffon flutters and drapes in the most graceful way. We're dying to know where she wears this dress, and we think it'd fit right in on a cruise along the Mexican Riviera. 

    When we wrote to Johanna and told her that she won, this is what she had to say:

     "I am an actress and an image consultant,, and I recommend to all my clients to get their dresses at"

    Awww... Thanks for your submission, Johanna, and enjoy your store credit. And don't forget, everyone, keep your Dress & Tell entries coming!

    On Friday night, we invited all the Jovani model search finalists to our office for  a party, so we could announce the winner from our boutique. One of these beautiful girls was going to discover that she would move on to the next round of the competition.

    The evening began with a little mixing and mingling, and moms and dads waited patiently for the news, too.

    Then, we had all the girls put on Jovani gowns and show off their smiles.

    We took some individual glamour shots.

    Things got a little bouncy...




    And poised.

    We announced our winner, and she accepted with open arms!

    Congratulations, Emily, and best of luck in the next rounds of the competition from all of us at Thanks again to all of the contestants that participated.

    2011 Golden Globes Dress Match
    Wednesday January 19, 2011 1 Comment
    We’re still delightfully dizzied and dazzled after Sunday night’s Golden Globes. The annual red carpet extravaganza proves to be an edge-of-your-seat night of oohs, aaahs, and omgs. Right after the event, we put our own in-house stylist, Jonah L., to work dress matching your favorite stars' gowns with affordable lookalikes in our collection.

    Image source:

    First up, Glee star, Amber Riley wore a stunning one-shoulder sheath gown covered with shimmery sequins. It did her voluptuous figure justice by accentuating her curves in all the right places. You can own this elegant look, too, in this stunning Jovani gown that’ll keep you shimmering long into the night.

    Carrie Underwood never fails to look short of stunning on the red carpet, and she maintained her flawless poise once again in a golden column gown with a delicate train. The strapless sweetheart neckline is just perfect for her, and if you want the same kind of effortless grace, look to this Tony Bowls gown to make your night.

    Next on our dress match-up list is the one and only, Megan Fox. Hailed as one of Hollywood’s sexiest starlets of now, Ms. Fox opted for a fresh, one-shoulder gown with a strappy bodice in a delicate shade of powder pink. Delicate jewels add just a touch of sparkle to the ensemble. Find the same kind of understated, minimal glamour with this delicate Mori Lee gown

    Finally, Olivia Wilde shone magnificently in black and gold ball gown that was nothing short of enchanting. This flattering silhouette is easy to wear and transforms any occasion into an event.  Try out this magical look for yourself in a dress by Jovani, Faviana, or Joli Prom.

    New Year's Dressolutions
    Tuesday January 04, 2011 1 Comment
    It’s officially a new year, and never being the type to fall out of fashion, we decided to hop on the 2011 resolutions train. But we’re not exactly interested in resolving every aspect of our lives. What can we say, other than we’re wardrobe focused? So we’re making New Year’s Dressolutions for, you guessed it, our dress up and party style in this bold new day.

    #1 Bring glamour to every occasion. There’s no reason to save up the shine just for special occasions. Every day is special, and it’s those little days, last-minute dates, nights out with your girls, that you really remember. So we’re striving to reach new heights of style and fun with fancy dresses, new lipstick, and flashy shoes. If it’s worth going out for, it’s worth the effort to look amazing, too.

    #2  Follow only flattering trends. Let’s face it, what’s hot at any given time isn’t for everyone. It’s that uniqueness that makes a fleeting style desirable at all. But trends aren’t worth looking bad for, and if they aren’t made for your shape, you can end up looking frumpy. So forget about ‘em, and find the right silhouettes for you. Looking good is always in style.

    #3  Dress in full color. Every season brings a fresh new palate of colors to liven up your outfits. And we plan to indulge fully into every bold new hue. We’ll find purples for all four seasons and seek out the perfect teal for summer, and would it, could it, be spring without a delicate pink? We think not. 

    #4  Plan out the perfect accessories. Two days before your party you realize your purse and shoes don’t really match your dress. So you scramble to find the time to shop for a worthy match and end up settling on something that’ll simply have to do. Sound familiar? Yeah, us too, but not this year. We’re resolving to plan out our important outfits well in advance, paying special attention to those intricate details (shoes, purses, and jewelry).

    #5  Try something new. Everyone has a comfort zone. Some of us live in black, others wear out neutrals, and many have a floral print for every day of the week. 2011 is the perfect year to break out and break free of those patterns. Explore the possibilities of new cuts, prints, fabrics, and more. Take a close, stylish friend shopping with you and let her help you find your new niche. 

    There you have it: our top five dressolutions for the new year. Let us know what you think. We wish you the best most glamorous year in 2011.
