Happy Independence Day
Enjoy that American Flag I made by painstakingly photoshopping these girls into a flag. It’s my gift to you. You’re Welcome.
Independent statehood IS something to celebrate and commemorate every single year that independence withstands. And with these celebrations comes all types of events that bring in another year of the country’s birth. In fact some of the most amazing parties are held on July 4th including a stuff your face till you’re sick “hot dog eating contest,” a fireworks show that will blow your mind and tonnes of smaller gatherings that will have dress codes ranging from sidewalk chic to black tie but for the sake fashion (and to appease my delicate sensibility) I’m going to discuss the more formal side of gala attire and show you some seriously swanky party dresses.
If you happen to be invited to one of these parties, or if you are the one throwing a black tie event then have I picked the most gorgeous gowns for Independence Day or have I picked the most gorgeous gowns for Independence Day? I’ll break them down for you in the only order that really makes sense for this occasion: Red, White then Blue.
Bold Red – Bombs may have burst in air in the star spangled banner but this dress is none other than a nuclear weapon of fierceness that will detonate on any dance floor you happen to be on! Of course I picked a Valentino gown in red lace to cover the Red portion of this Independence Day Dressing Guide. I would pair this dress with a tall pair of Christian Louboutins and call it a day… or an evening ‘wink wink nudge nudge!’
Seductive White – Doves may represent peace but there is nothing peaceful about the silhouette of this sexy white dress. The plunging neckline and slit up the back of this Gucci dress are hot hot hot and will make your date white hot for you.
Simple Blue – Freedom can be seen in many colors but for me blue is the one that strikes a chord. This column style dress has a fold at the left hip and seam detailing throughout. Reed Krakoff is known for creating a simple to the eye, yet intricately sewn piece that fit as well as they look. For a more down to earth Independence Day I suggest this gorgeous blue gown.
My gift to you this 137th Independence Day is that you will look fabulous and be free. Also I wanted to leave you with a laugh so flip to the next page to find out what Mike the Situation, Geraldo Rivera and Independence Day have in common?
It’s their Birthday’s on July 4th!
Mike the Situation is turning the big 3-0 and Geraldo is turning the awkward age of 69. Bizarre right?
