It’s been three weeks, and I’m getting frustrated. I’ve been searching high and low for a cute cocktail dress that’s both on-trend and appropriate for my boyfriend’s company holiday party. I’m pretty picky about dresses. I know what works and what doesn’t on my five-foot-three-inch frame. I know I only want something if it’s one-of-a-kind (who wants to show up donning the same gown as someone else’s date?) yet wearable for multiple events. And I know that I have to (unfortunately) stick to a budget. It seems I’m not alone on my quest for the perfect party frock. Other shoppers are scouring the racks right alongside me. Countless holiday gatherings, work functions, New Year’s events, etc., make for frantic trips to MOA, neighborhood dress shops, and (if you’re like me) your sister’s closet.
Well girls, there’s another option. Take advantage of the unique trunk show going on this week at Clutch Boutique. The 50th and France storefront brings us a four-day event featuring limited edition Eden Blake fashions by up-and-coming designer Heather Menzie Gressette. Gressette’s Holiday 2007 collection features elegant cocktail dresses; flirty, strapless gowns; and chic separates, and all are made with luxurious fabrics in bright, festive colors.
