The perfect summer cocktail dress
I've mentioned my obsession with Hong Kong-based company Shanghai Tang before, and as I browsed through their online store today, I found yet another reason to love them--this multicolored "pop peony" sequined dress. The silhouette is a basic white tank dress, but every inch of this beauty is smothered in colored sequins. The spangles add a glittery, textured sheen to the dress, almost making the gorgeous rainbow of colors--pink, orange, yellow, black, blue, red--come alive. Can't you see this vibrant creation as a cocktail dress at an outdoors summer party, paired with equally bright shoes and perhaps a subdued clutch so all the colors won't clash? No matter what, you'll be the center of attention in this dress that's sure to bedazzle the rest of the partygoers.
