Crystal’s NDAD Donation: Chevron Sequin Prom Dress

Aug 20, 2014 | 35 Comments

I received this amazing dress from reader Crystal, and I have been waiting for just the right time/place to wear it. I finally had the perfect spot – a trip to the Magic Castle, where there’s a dress code of jackets for gents and no jeans, sandals, or casual gear. When I see that I think, cocktail attire!! And when I think cocktail attire, I think sequins!

I bought this at Savers to wear to a wedding because the wedding was themed “crazy prom dresses”. I thought I could lose the weight to wear it to the wedding, but no luck. I figured that you could have fun with it! Thanks, Crystal
