Must have Cocktail and Evening Gowns for Curvy Women on a Budget

Summer time is quickly approaching and having the perfect cocktail or evening gown for a wedding, birthday party, gala, or charity event is a must.

Here are my favorite gowns that I have selected as must haves for any season. Many of the selections I personally own in my wardrobe collection.

My personal aesthetic style is sleek, classy, and timeless. I love vintage gowns and my personal philosophy is ten years from now your gown should still look like perfection on you.

Take a peek at the gowns and let me know what you think.

Eloquii ($129.95)

This dress I wore to my grandmother’s 80th birthday was such a hit. I actually saw Beyonce in a similar dress a few months earlier and I instantly loved her dress in particularly the color green. I received so many compliments. This dress is also perfect for the holidays or New Years Eve.
