if you ask my family and friends they would tell you more like devil ears but the halo i’m talking about is the black halo line of dresses. i’ve been a fan for a long time. i find i can take their dresses from work to cocktail with the change of a shoe or a necklace. i also can wear my dresses all year long with a little layering.
this past weekend, i was in a pickle. i didn’t think i was going to be able to go to mardi gras but when work comittments cleared up i had to find something to wear to an afternoon cocktail party and fast. i started thinking and voila it came to me. let’s go back to the old faithful…the black halo dress. i posted a picture of me in the dress here. got lots of compliments and now i’m going to take it to the office with a black blazer. when it gets warmer, i’ll exchange the black blazer for a white blazer for the office and just wear bare for non work events.
just a couple of helpful hints. order two sizes. to be honest i have and sometimes one size fits and the next time another size does even though my weight hasn’t changed. (i know that’s frustrating but you want a comfortable fit; just take the tag out so you won’t know what size it is) also, this dress calls for spanx. most of their dresses are cotton with a touch of lycra which just begs for spanx. third, my suggestion is to start with the jackie o sheath dress. just as the name implies it is classic and it comes in a rainbow of colors. finally, this dress in an investment but i promise i’m still wearing the first black halo dress i bought for this same party five years ago. as caroline and i have preached, quality is worth the investment.
