I'm writing this from the Bemelmans Bar at the famed Carlyle Hotel in New York City just a few days after this place was crawling with some of the most fashionable people in the world for the Met Gala. Call me old, but I’m nostalgic for the days when the Met Gala was where NYC’s high-society folks joined forces with top designers to showcase their most Prince and Princess-worthy looks. But hey, we can still play dress-up and pretend we’re going to the ball!
It’s prom and wedding season—and there are many galas too! That means it's time to shop for a fancy evening gown or cocktail dress. While many people are completely happy blending in with the crowd, I’ve always been drawn to those who tend to push the envelope a bit and make a statement without saying a word.
