Why I Wanted to Try these Dresses

Pre-COVID, there were special occasions like balls, Valentine’s Dinner Specials, scholarship fundraisers, weddings, wedding receptions, donor receptions, cocktail parties, dance parties, high school proms, social dances, christenings, fashion shops, promotional dinners, office Christmas parties at a hotel, … you name it. These were all occasions to don semi-formal or even formal dresses. They gave us the Cinderella feeling. After a year of missing out these uplifting events, I was like


Woman you want to dress up. You dress for yourself to feel and look great. What the heck, when you want to wear a glamorous dress, just do it. It’s your life, live it to the fullest.


Dresses are a whole outfit. But you can accessorize them in many unique ways. I can find ways to wear it now. Or as my niece would say

When you believe you can, you are half way there. #empoweredwoman #selfmotivation Click To Tweet

Therefore, I picked the cream Midi Lace Party Dress and a black, sleek, modest velvet maxi dress with elbow-long sleeves.

How to Wear a Prom Dress at Day?

When I opened the  opened the package, I was impressed by the quality of the dresses.  At the really affordable price, I had expected some flat (read cheap) lace. But the lace has beautiful 3D texture. When I first held the white beauty in my hands I was like


This dress is a chameleon.


Sure, it will look stylish with gloves, especially in satin and opera length, as a bride dress. However, it also works as summer dress, for going out, with a cardigan at work, and of course as a bride’s dress. Add a fancy hat and a bolero jacket, and a Southern Belle is ready for church. Add a flower headband, combat boots and it is an outfit you can what you can wear for an outdoor concert or Woodstock Revival (once the pandemic is over).

Next I opened the plastic bag of the Lace Bodice Velvet Evening Dress. The beautiful see-thru has embroidery and small black sequins. They are nicely sewn on, overlapping like the scales of a Regal Angelfish.


Stylist tip: When you buy a piece with sequins, make sure they are small and overlap to not look cheap.


My honest reaction was these dresses look way more more expensive than they are! Can you believe that the white one is just $40.99 and the black high waist velvet straight evening dress with lace bodice is just $64.99!

It comes even better: They have Free Shipping on orders $50+. I bet not only my Alaskan readers love that!


That’s a smoking deal.



Unique, Unusual Ways to Wear a Prom Dress at Day

Typically, dresses in the special occasion sector cost a fortune, when you look at the cost-per-wear. On the contrary, these Ever Pretty dresses can be worn more than just once or twice. Due to the quality of the dresses you have no problem styling and wearing them beyond their original purpose.

Who May Like these Dresses

No matter whether you are looking for a bride dress, a maxi dress or a dress for the office. The wide selection of dresses in all styles for all shapes and sizes from US2 to US26 permits everyone to find something for their taste and budget that you can also wear at day

Women with Romantic Style will love the cream lace dress as a wardrobe update for summer. When your style is Glamour the black velvet maxi dress is perfect. Also every arm-shy or cleavage-shy midlife fashionista will love the black dress! Did I mention that the lace sleeves have a nude lining? This means

No-show of midlife bingo wings!


The cleavage has a nude lining as well, which is perfect coverage of sun-damage from using mirrors for tanning in the 70s. Love that! The modest fashionista will love this feature as well.


Verdict: A sexy look without the flesh show!

Read the Size Chart

I am usually a US size 4 on top and 2 on the bottom. Thus, I always order my dresses in a size 4 to fit my shoulders. As you see, it’s a perfect fit. Typically, the skirt part is a bit loose and I take it in. This work wasn’t needed for both garments. Since I didn’t know whether it is me, just a random accidentally running smaller sample, I did some research. Obviously, the  brand’s attire runs on the smaller side, but measures of the pieces (when taken flat) are in the ballpark of the numbers in the size chart. Therefore, I recommend that you take your measures and compare with the size chart for best fit. I have made doing so a habit.


Scientist tip: When a size chart gives the measures in both centimeter and inches always measure in centimeter. These measurements are more precise due to the finer increment.


Also, when you are full breasted, make sure to check the breast measurements. I am a bra size A (75A for my European readers). The dress fits well in the chest.


I definitely can recommend these dresses to my friends!
